    Can some one explain how the points are accumulated in Red Card Program?

    We presently are getting 3 nights comped, $300.00 gaming and 2 buffets....We have no idea how we achieved this status nor do we know how the various levels work!

    Anyone enlighten me?

    When you say that you don't know how you got the offer, does that mean that you don't feel you've played enough there to "deserve" such an offer? If so, then it's probably a "teaser" offer. You've visited and put a few bucks through the machines and they're making the gamble that if they can convince you to stay there for X nights, you'll gamble enough to make the free room, buffets and freeplay a good investment. If you have gambled a fair amount at Wynncore...well, you have 12 trips under your belt, you know how this stuff works - they give you free shit to get you to piss away your money in their casino instead of the one next door.

    As far as the Red Card program goes, it's about as opaque as any rewards program out there. There are no levels that I'm aware of. And the only points I know of are the ones that accrue that can be used to get freeplay. 100 points = $1 of cash back/freeplay. When it comes to earning points, I believe you get one point for every $1.50 (maybe $2?) in slots and one point for every $5-15 of video poker (depending on expected return and, if I'm not mistaken, variance).

    Enjoy your stay. Wynncore is as good as it gets, IMO. :beer: (Red Card, on the other hand, isn't exactly the most generous program in town.)

    I stayed at Wynn last month on a teaser/marketing offer from my previous (first-time-ever-playing-at-wynn) trip. Stayed 3 nights free and paid for an extra night at $129. Would you know how many points they want in order for me to get another one of those offers? i liked the place, the location was a bit of a hassle though, but id stay there again if it was free. Honestly, because of the location, if i were to pay for it, id rather stay at Cosmo or Aria...but thats just me.

    Well that makes some sense...

    We have 3100 points...from our last trip....or 31 dollars in free play.

    Wynn offers seem to move quickly up and down the “generous/stingy” scale as the supply and demand wax and wane. If I had to guess, I’d say they’re probably looking for somewhere in the neighborhood of 3000 points/day for a solid any-day-of-the-week offer. I’d imagine free Sunday-Thursday offers could probably be had for a little less than that. YMMV, of course…

    Wynn does send out some very attractive offers for specific weekends or weeks where they must know demand will be low. If your travel plans are flexible, occasionally you can book an offer you wouldn’t otherwise qualify for. I was able to book one a few months ago that was significantly better than my usual offers but it was only good for a four or five day period.

    I would have guessed 3500+ a day to get midweek offers..but who knows everyone i've talked to seems to say something different.
    for example my host told me for table games they want $1k average for 4hrs to get RFB in a tower suite (base room, not a real suite) ($200/day food), which is way higher than i've heard from anyone else and seems crazy high to me.

    My host told me 4000 points or $200/hand for a Tower Suite (room). 8000 points or $300/hand for TS room + $200/day F&B. Of course that was over two years ago when Vegas wasn't nearly as strong as it is today. My own experiences (more recently) have me believing that your host's statement - while still too high, IMO - is probably closer to the actual number today.

    I've earned between 8,000 and 10,000 points per day recently, and received a TS room, $200 FB credit per day, and some free play.
