    I'm looking at booking a trip as a package - since this is one of the few times the package comes out cheaper.

    I'm looking at Flamingo or Linq.

    I have some Total Rewards Credits that I can use for food, beverage or resort fees. I'm wondering, if I used the credits at the pool, does that trigger a gaming day?

    I figure that since its a package through another company, then there is little reason to present my players card at check-in...so then the nights themselves won't trigger a gaming day.

    There was a host from PH who used to post on here and one of the ways he put it was "on any day that comps are extended, play is expected." You can't see the exact context here, but I thought it was pretty safe to assume that included redeeming RCs, because:

    1. It tells them you were there
    2. It's using comps

    According to my information, everytime someone asks this question, it triggers a gaming day! But, seriously, yes it would.

    Any action with your account will trigger a gambling day. If they know you are on property, your visit will be tracked. As far as I know every casino in vegas works the same way in that regard.

    If you use your card # for a room comp or discount, you triggered a day. Use your reward credits for a coke in the company store, you triggered a day. Stick your card in a machine to check your points, trigger a day. ETC

    If the system sees your account in action, you are on property and you day has began.

    If you care about such things, do not give anyone your account number. Not when you book a room. Not when you eat. Dont visit a Diamond Club (they swipe) or anything like that.

    It is OK to flash your card, I do so all the time. If your card lets you skip the lines for a cab or a buffet or such. You can show your card (no swipe)

    I was going to play in a poker tournament at the Venetian but a host told me that triggers a gaming day so I changed my plans. I'm getting 3 nights comped with $300 resort credit and I don't want to jeopardize that.

    DonnyC - have you logged into the TR website and checked with your card number to make sure you are getting the best rates (or comps)? You may be missing out on cheaper rates.
