    Just logged in out of bored and see I am Sapphire now. After last visit on September I was no where close. Perhaps they've updated earning rates again?

    Doubtful. Maybe you participated in the promotion where they doubled Ruby Tier credits which helped boost you?

    I don't think they did that promo until after our trip. I didn't swipe for it either way because I knew I was too far away for the 100 to help.

    You had 450 pts. added to put you to Sapphire? Wow, that's a lot and good for you!:thumbsup:

    I only played vp at Boyd in Sept no tables. After the changeover and re calculation I had somewhere around 250. Didn't give them a lot of play in Sept think I was a bit shy of 300 afterwards then this update showed up sometime recently.
    Hopefully someone in town soon can confirm if they changed the rate you earn.

    I just checked my account and I’m now sapphire too. I had my father in law use my card to keep my account open mid October and thought I only had 200-300 tier points before. Wanted to keep the 18000 Bconnected points to use in February. Have him $20 to play through it and he lost it, but played another $20 on the same $1 machine and worked it up to $200! Happy with that. Now my tier points are up to 789. Don’t think he played that much on it. Guessing maybe $100 max.

    We came back from Vegas on Monday. A couple of days later I checked my wife's account, she had ~2000 Tier Credits. I checked this morning, 15016 (Emerald) with an expiration date of 12/31/2019.

    @Joe @bubbakitty have you checked lately

    @Ty Mine is still reading 12/2018 with 15,284. The only place I see to check it is the date on the picture of the card.

    I have not been to Vegas since April and left there a low sapphire After the program change my tier credits dropped to about 360 but they left me as a sapphire. I just checked my bconnected account after seeing this thread a few minutes ago and my tier credit total had risen to 761. Now I hope a thread is started to figure how many tier credits are earned for playing full pay JOB, the only game I play.

    I believe @tringlomane did a calculation of around 30 hands at $1.25 on full pay JOB earned 1 TC.

    I do remember something about a double points promotion that was going on shortly after the changeover. I would have played during that promotion, but it looks like it took them a good two months to add on the extra points. That makes CET look fast. Maybe that promo just ended? That's my best guess.

    We went to Vegas over Thanksgiving and I had ~460 and wife had ~570 some tier points. My son was also with us but I don't remember how many points he had. We made a concerted effort to have all of us make sapphire by playing on each others cards and we are now all sapphire. I ended up with 911 tier points, wife has 977 and my son was close to 800. My wife and son are primarily slot players and I am a VP player.

    Just checked mine, still uber confused about tier credits, number seems to fluctuate however the card says I'm Sapphire til 12/31/2019. As long as the room offers keep rolling in, I'll keep stupidly playing. I can't pass up their rooms.

    Haven't been back since April 2018 when I just barely made Sapphire on that trip. Last I checked, card was expiring April 2019 but now the site is showing Sapphire through December 2019.

    I'm now magically Sapphire also! Up to 775 tier credits!

    I don't remember what my tier credits were before my trip last month and i certainly didn't gamble a ton (mainly $5 BJ at Orleans and Cal) but i've been getting room offers of 2 free nights from Orleans from June through Feb 2019 so *maybe* i'm doing something right? If anyone wants to take 30 seconds to enlighten me on how this will change my life (ha) please let me know!

    Me too! I remember having 280 or so tier credits... now I have 780. This feels like a compliment, but really the only net benefit that you get from Sapphire status is the ability to earn BConnected Points. Which, I guess, means I can use those 5x points vouchers from ACG now. But other than that I'm not too excited.

    There's also the Baha Mar "benefit" of getting two nights free when you pay for two nights. Perhaps I can tie that into a future Atlantis comp stay through Total Rewards sometime next year to do two in the same trip.

    Hoping someone in town can recheck the earning rates on the VP machines. Hoping they backed off the god awful earning rates and backdated the changes
