    Ive been looking on the website and I cant understand what the difference between the two point types are, I understand how to earn tier credits and I understand how to redeem reward credits, but how do you get reward credits? Is there an easy way to know the difference?

    Thanks

    tier, determins the level card you have, you earn tier points from gambling, january 1st it goes back to 0 and you start over to obtain the tier level again

    reward points you also get at the same time as tier for playing...use them to pay for things within CET, you must get 1 reward point every six months or you will lose them

    also each reward point is worth 1 penny at a 1-1 cash in rate, some places will take yourpoints at 1.5-1 or 2-1... so 1,000 points instead of being $10 at 1-1, 2-1 it would only be worth $5

    can I get bonus reward points like I can get bonus tier credits? like if I earn 5000 tier credits and I get 10k bonus credits (Diamond in a day) can I also get 10k bonus reward credits?)

    im not 100% sure on that, i thnk you will only get reward points with the 5000 and not the 10k bonus...you can however swipe at certin kiosk on sundays or mondays or whatever promo day they have and can multiply what you earned that day up to 30 times

    multiply what you earned up to 30x? that sounds too good to be true, if I earn 1 point per $10 of coin in and $1/140 points, then that would be 2.1% cash back,

    2.1% cash back on 9/6 JoB would be awesome, but I cant imagine it happening

    I've seen 9/6 JOB that only earns 1 point per $50 coin in.

    In Vegas and elsewhere yeah. Some are $25 per point.

    And Vegas is offering RC multipliers up to 30X? I expect this from properties across the country, but not Vegas.

    Reward credits are pretty meaningless nowadays..Consider them a comped starbucks coffee once in awhile.

    But you will only get the 30x (or whatever the highest multiplier is) maybe 1 out of 100 days, if that. The other 99 days, you will get the 2x or the 3x.

    You can earn 1 RC for every dollar charged to a Total Rewards Visa card as well. We have enough of those that we usually eat for free in Vegas using RC's at participating restaurants.

    I have never seen a multiplier day in Vegas.. I have encountered them in KC, Council Bluffs & I think in Tunica also. I had a 7X in CB last spring that ended up earning $70 RCs the day I was playing. That was nice as it basically paid for all my food from Friday night to Sunday morning as I came home with the same RCs I arrived with.

    By our trip in May we should have close to $600 which should pay for a lot during our stay.

    Also remember to present your players card every time you purchase a meal or buy something at a CET property as you earn reward credits that way too.
