Might want to look at the Total Rewards Visa - Comenity product. Approval gets you 10K points and platinum status for discounts/VIP service at Caesar's properties. High initial limits, balance transfer opportunities periodically and points specials. There are some high rollers on this board who know all the tricks on this card and commented in a few threads. Search for it.

I was going to mention this one, but I know nothing about it beyond the basics, I don't go to Vegas and I'm not a high roller. :grin:

 

Glad someone knowledgeable could recommend taking a look at it.

If you don't gamble the TR card is worthless.

 

Just go with whatever gets you the best value on travel.

 

CSP comes to mind.

 

Not sure where you get that. Drop $1000 on room/food/shows/spa/merchandise on a LV trip at Caesars properties and you earn $50 in comp credit that you can tap next LV trip (or at your local regional Caesars property). No gambling required.

I know you said you don't gamble, but this thread is still worth a look.

Might be a conversation topic for some of your colleagues on the flight...

Thanks! 10 years ago, I could see myself doing something like that. Nowadays I drink less and rarely do anything stupid. However, to be on the safe side, I'll probably leave my high CL card in the room and bring my low CL card when I go out for the night.

TR Visa is great for earning reward credits (RCs) that are used like cash at CET properties. I've had the card since March 2014 and got 10,000 RCs after spending $750 on the card plus two free buffet of buffet passes (The current promo isn't the same - I think a High Roller pass, a night at an Atlantic City property, or a buffet pass at one of the lesser buffets). 10,000 RCs = $100. 5x RCs for purchases at any CET property, so you could charge a room at a Caesars property and get 5x. 3x credits on airfare and gasoline, 1x for everything else. They have been doing random promo deals like there was a 3 week time frame where they did 3x on all purchases outside of the CET properties, and I spent $4k during that time, earning $120 in RCs. I use this for my main card, but we also go to Vegas at least twice per year.

 

Charge meals and drinks to your room and you can use the RCs to pay those charges. At Eiffel Tower Restaurant and Mon Ami Gabi, you have to visit the TR desk and get a voucher for what you plan to spend in the restaurant. If you get a voucher for more than you spend, you lose the overage, so estimate conservatively. I've used $25 at Hash House a Go Go and $200 at Mon Ami Gabi and currently have $471 in RCs to use in November over a 4 night stay.

 

Of course, the card may not be good for everyone, but it works well for me.
