    I'm looking for a list of casinos on the strip where I can use the TR Platinum card to get some special benefit. For example, I know some (but not all) let you use Platinum to get front of line in the buffet. Some TR casinos outside of Vegas give you free Valet parking with the Plat card or better. Is there a list or can you share what you know about this? Where can I get front of line for buffets / etc? Any idea? Thank you!

    I just got plat. for the first time during this last trip so I don't know much, but I know:

    Paris buffet lets you skip line with platinum

    Caesar's buffet doesn't. (Diamond and higher only).

    PF Chang's at PHo doesn't. (Diamond and higher only)

    I think on TR website it shows benefits at each different casino.

    I just went back and looked the website has changed so it is not displayed the same way.

    Every TR Buffet I have been to Vegas allows you to go to the short line when entering.

    I know in Horseshoe in Hammond, IN platinum doesn't get you S**T. (sorry off-topic) except a $2 discount on valet.

    In Vegas you should get priority seating at NEARLY all of their restaurants. Obviously the new Caesars buffet is excluded (although I did read someone that said it did include Platinum on a quiet day). I imagine that might change after it has been there awhile.

    Most sit-down restaurants on their props do also. I have been given priority seating at LeProvencal, Cafe St. Louis, Le Burger, etc. Even at Margaritaville - Diamond gets you next seating basically & Platinum moved us from 30 minutes to about 10-15. (No signage at most of the sit-downs - just ask & they will tell you if they can move you up in the line).

    At Sugar Factory I was told yes one time. Last time on a Saturday night the hostess said no, but the manager said we always do our best to accomodate the upper level card members. Wait was over an hour (ugh) & he said he could get us in at about 35 minutes. When I indicated I didn't dare wait that long to eat (diabetic) he offered to get me a complimentary glass of juice if I needed something right away. (I thought that was VERY nice of him).

    In many of the CET retail shops (such as le Journal at Paris) you get a discount based on your card level - even at Gold. So show your card.

    Cashier windows vary - at Paris it seems there is always a Platinum/Diamond line. At Flamingo it is nearly always Diamond only. I would have expected more Diamond players at Paris lol!!! I had a drunk guy start yelling at me last trip because the clerk called me forward from the D/P line to the D/P window (he was in regular line). He started yelling that I hadn't been in line as long as he had etc. Yikes! I got out of there as fast as I could.

    Most hotels have Platinum check-in/out areas also.
