The Total Rewards credits-to-dollars ratio is 100 Total Rewards credits per $1 when redeemed for Caesars hotel stays, comp slips, items in the Caesars Rewards catalog, or merchandise at participating outlets. That means each Total Rewards credit is worth up to 1 cent. However, credits are worth half as much (200 credits = $1) when redeemed for free play at Caesars Entertainment properties, for gift cards, and for in-room movies at participating properties.
But, just to be clear, what you’re earning and redeeming aren’t technically “Total Rewards” credits anymore. Total Rewards (the loyalty program for Caesars Entertainment) got a rebrand in February 2019 after Harrah’s bought Caesars. The Total Rewards loyalty program is now known as Caesars Rewards, and the Total Rewards Credit Card (which gives credits for purchases) is now the Caesars Rewards Credit Card. The card gives 5 credits for every $1 spent at Caesars Rewards resorts and casinos; 2 credits per $1 spent on airline tickets, gas, and groceries; and 1 credit per $1 spent on everything else.
Total Rewards Visa benefits include a $0 annual fee, a $100 initial rewards bonus, auto rental insurance, emergency support, $0 fraud liability, and free credit score reports. Cardholders who make a purchase within 90 days of opening an account also receive a buffet pass valid at all Caesars resorts and get upgraded to Total Rewards Platinum status. Platinum status gives cardholders discounts at spas and gift shops, as well as pre-sale access to select shows.… read full answer
Benefits like auto rental insurance and $0 fraud liability come with a lot of other credit cards, so they don’t set the Total Rewards Visa apart. Still, it’s important to understand what exactly the benefits are and how they work. That way cardholders can be sure to take full advantage of them and save the most money possible.
The auto rental collision damage waiver insures you when you drive rental vehicles. You’ll receive the benefit when you decline the rental agency’s insurance and use your Total Rewards Visa to pay for the reservation. You’ll be covered for damage due to collision or theft.
In terms of rewards, cardholders earn 5 reward credits per dollar spent at Caesars Rewards resorts and casinos and on tickets through TR Live Events. They also earn 2 reward credits for every dollar spent on flights, gas, and groceries, and 1 credit on everything else. The Total Rewards Visa card’s signup bonus is 10,000 reward credits (redeemable for $100) after cardholders spend $750 in the first 90 days.
The emergency support benefit is for situations in which you’ve lost or damaged your card, or had it stolen. Visa will block the card (if stolen) and connect you with the card’s issuer. Once the issuer has approved, you’ll be sent a replacement card within 1-3 business days. As an alternative, Visa can arrange for cash to be available at a location near you within hours of your issuer’s approval.
Finally, $0 fraud liability protects cardholders from unauthorized use of their card or account information. So they aren’t responsible for any fraudulent charges that pop up on their account. Total Rewards Visa cardholders also get free credit scores on their account summary.
The Total Rewards Visa credit score requirement is 700 or higher. The Total Rewards card requires good credit or better, so a score between 700 and 850 is your best shot at approval. Besides a credit score of at least 700, you’ll also need to be a U.S. resident and at least 18 years old to be approved.… read full answer
