    If you want to be on a CET property, what are some ways avoid your visit counting as a gaming day? Should you not use the diamond lounge or the spa or the fitness center? If you pay for the room, are you expected to play and if you do not, it hurts your ADT? What if you just dine in or park your car at the property? Essentially, does any swipe of your card mean your play is rated and if you don't play your ADT goes down?

    The way I understand it is that anything you do - whether you enter a lounge, parking garage, spa, fitness center, redeem RCs, etc. counts as a gaming day.

    If you're paying for a room booked through the CET website while you are logged in, there may be an expectation of play if the room was heavily discounted.

    If you booked the room using your TR account then yes that would effect your ADT. Book with a third party then you’re probably fine. I doubt they cross check names and addresses with the players club.

    If you don't use you card or give your name while on property then that is the only way to be certain not to trigger a gaming day. Using any sort of food, room, or shopping comps, any kind of offer through casino marketing, or using free play will surely trigger a gaming day.

    I think there has been mixed information on whether these things trigger a gaming day:

    Using your tier discount for shopping.
    Parking
    Entering the Diamond Lounge
    Redeeming RC's (as opposed to a non-RC comp)
    Accessing the Spa or Pool using your card
    Directly booking a room in your name but without using your players club account/discount/comp.

    While in general it is safer to assume that any swipe of your card will trigger a gaming day at CET, a person I think has credibility has told me that there are a couple of exceptions like parking and Great Gift Wrap redemptions.

    swiping your card for parking absolutely does not count as a gaming day. IDK about anything else though. I often go to Vegas and use CET parking garages for 2 days at a time when im staying elsewhere. My comps and offers have not been affected one bit.

    Every time I am in Vegas and not staying at a CET property, the Caesars Rewards app on my phone always adds a $5 off offer for the Eiffel Tower viewing deck. I am slightly convinced that the app knowing I am in town and not putting in my requisite gaming activity with CET to at least maintain ADT could be hurting my standing gaming-wise. If the app knows I am in town, then my junior host could plausibly know, too, and dock my ADT for it. I won't even use my Caesars Rewards Visa at a Vegas CET property on days on which I am not putting in full gaming activity with them.

    I have verified through CET (for what that's worth) that GGWU redemptions do NOT count as a gaming day, nor does parking THAT day.

    I also received this reply from CET in response to a parking swipe on a regular gaming day.

    Hello xxxxxxxx,


    Swiping your Total Rewards card within a promotional day or a regular day will not qualify as activity on your account. The only way that parking activity will actually count for you is if you were to pay for parking by charging it to your room. However, this process can take up to 10 days for credit to be added to your account.


    Thank you,


    yyyyyyy

    Contrary to alot of the replies on here, there has been a number of posts from a member who has spoken definitively to say that the only thing that triggers a gaming day is actually gaming. I believe @AllenAndRossi is the one who provided this information, so maybe he can chime in.

    Good memory, @alexm. I'm only chiming in because you mentioned me.

    Originally, I had spoken independently to 3 executive hosts who told me that using your card for actual gaming is the only thing that triggers a gaming day. Last trip, I asked a 4th executive host(without telling him I had spoken to 3 others and what they said)and he said the same thing. He also(like the other 3)said no-play is better than low-play for the player.

    So now I'm up to 4 executive hosts who have told me only gaming with your card triggers a gaming day.

    I have had NUMEROUS trips where I didn't play on check out day. My offers have never suffered for it.

    Now I have a trip where I no-played one day of the trip(in addition to no-playing on check out day). Same bankroll for the trip. But one day(and check out day)of no play.

    The only difference I've seen in my offers is that my free play and gift card offers have gone UP.

    Oh, and my executive host never mentioned the no-play day, comp'd 2 Bacchanal dinner buffets without taking my reward credits(and I had between $700-$800 in rc's), and said to just let him know when my next trip is and he will take good care of me.

    Why wasn't I going to chime-in until @alexm mentioned me? Because it's just :bang: doing so when people don't want to believe, people want to continue to spread misinformation, and people want to fear the no-play days and no-play check out days.:rolleyes:

    @AllenAndRossi I am staying at a newer property in a few weeks not in LV and I am hoping to put some of this to the test. I also plan to ask as many questions as possible. When I return to AC this spring I am going to ask my host the same questions directly as well. That being said, my experiences seem to match yours

    I have switched to no playing most nights of my stay and just doing one “heavy” play day each trip with CET. My offers have increased drastically. I now fully believe that it is low play that kills offers, not no play with CET. In fact I have had several one or two night comped stays with CET over the past couple years and I no played most of them. My offers never decreased.
