    I just saw that Circa gives away Limo rides to/from the airport for any "Legend" level card holders, with any stay.

    That is a great perk to me!

    What are your favorite casino card perks? Lets put what is actually important to us, in this thread, for any execs that care to see what players actually want out of a club.

    Most everyone gives you cutsies. Cut the line at checkin, Buffet, Taxi etc. But what really stands out as a good perk for you?

    With Mlife, I think this is a good perk to dangle when you are Platinum:
    Annual Complimentary Cruise on Royal Caribbean or Celebrity Cruises.

    And I love the Platinum Mlife experiences. Getting free tickets to Shark Reef, the Secret Garden or Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art.

    Even though some of them are downright shit these days, the Diamond Lounge was always a great perk, and one of the biggest reasons why players want to hit/stay Diamond.

    Things I personally don't care about, and just seem like Fluff to add the benefits page.

    Discounts on hotel rooms. Really, if I am chasing a higher tier, and you are not already comping my room, one of us is doing something wrong. Even then, your discount is usually not as good as something I can get from Expedia, as you normally just discount your rack rate.

    Rental car discounts. I would prefer you to send me a car, instead of getting me a discount to rent my own. But honestly, I can usually find a better discount code online, than what you offer me for being a better gambler.

    And my least favorite "perk", are the non-guaranteed ones. Room upgrade * When Available. Early check in* When Available. If you cant just give me something, don't tell me its a perk if I might not be able to use it.

    Lol. Room upgrade perk is biggest dogshit perk ever. Have yet to see any tangible benefit to that one.

    My fav perk is getting a drink while checking in at Cosmo. Getting served a drink always adds to friends wow factor.

    Right? You know how many times I booked my room, and then asked about the free card level upgrade? A lot! You know what they tell me, every time, "That's not a guaranteed room Sir" "Here are the keys to your 85 SQFT room, with 1 cot, next to the elevator" "Make sure you piss in the casino restroom, since there is none on your floor.

    So you're saying they won't take good care of me at the Aztec Inn just because I put two fresh $20s into a machine?

    Well under normal times I like the mlife separate line for cabs with platinum. Spa credit and 2 free master classes with Wynn platinum is nice. Black tier even better. If your black tier my guess is you got a host anyways that will take care of it. I just love you get tier credits for table play. Not sure anyone else does that.

    Diamond food priority and line cut (CET)
    Mlife does line cut but it’s highly variable. Platinums got to cut the security line before the Cher concert but Aria cafe let pearl and higher cut the line.

    In addition to Wynn (who also gives table players the most back in terms of self-spendable something compared to anyone else on the Strip): Caesars, Venetian, MGM, Stations, D/GG/Circa (allegedly; I have yet to play for science to confirm this for all of you), Boyd.

    My one iteration of this for the day. Casinos love it when we players don't fully recognize the difference between tier/status credits/points and redeemable points/credits, or the value to the player of either one.

    That said, we're talking about tier here. I also feel that Wynn has the best tier benefits, and the benefits are the most worth it for giving gaming loyalty. You just need to generate $3k of theo per year in Vegas (or $7k of theo in Boston) to get to Wynn Rewards Platinum. The same amount of play with MGM in Vegas gets you Mlife Gold; with Caesars, base Diamond at best; with Cosmo, Identity Sterling (quite a bit short of Gold; and with Venetian, Grazie Elite if playing machines, or Grazie Premier if playing tables.

    The benefits with Wynn Rewards are my favorite in absolute and in pound-for-pound terms. At just the Platinum tier in Vegas, there are two benefits worth at least $100 each (no matter how your play got you to tier), and a third that is likely to be worth at least $100. Birthday dinner -- yes, please!

    What I found interesting my last trip at Wynn. I made platinum. We had two master classes and a spa day. I wanted to use the perks I just earned. I talked to the lady at the players desk. She said something to the effect of “ your host will take these off at the end of your stay” I thought to myself that was interesting. If it’s something that is part of the card perk. Why would a host need to take them off.

    In the terms and conditions for Wynn Rewards, it says that either the rewards desk or your host will be able to take care of redeeming your tier perks. The Wynn Rewards desk will be able to tell you if you are coded to a host, and if so, specifically who your host is. If you are not coded to a host, then the desk would be taking care of redeeming your tier perks.

    I enjoy the limo transportation from Cosmo andb the $250 resort credit for platinum. Those are things with real tangible value for me

    Platinum Mlife I walked my then 23 yo Daughter and friend into Calvin Harris at Haakasaan to front of a giant snaking line, and into club, before club opened. Kind of cool. Bouncers were very cool. Nice perk!

    Ok I like the shark reef, lion dolphin exhibit, Bellagio art, jumping lines, phenomenal comped seats at concerts like U2, Bruno, JT, the rooms, the comps, the airport limos and limos around town ( thanks @Texas Steph!! )You are given full Degen credit for taking limo from Cosmo to Circa, because of your report I'm now using that perk for special dinners off strip or downtown runs! I love the amount of properties Mlife has and perks ( annual cruises, we used many times, best was Hong Kong to Singapore ) but still I'm not completely sold on the giant corporate entity. I really think the only reason they've kept me is because I have such a great host now but I used to have a crap host and almost left completely . I have received decent offers from VP and Wynn and plan to keep playing and using those too. I've walked away from Ceasars and Cosmo although we are going with @Mawboi and G to Momokfuku in April. Yea!

    Got coded to VIP once. Must have been because I think our hosts boss booked it. We’ve casually mentioned getting vip check in to our actual host and no luck so far. Is it a given at Platinum? We are really close, should get it next trip.

    If you’re platinum and have a host, they will typically VIP code you.

    The worst "upgrade" benefit I've seen is Venetian's. If you're Paiza Gold, you qualify for a free room upgrade. What they hide in the fine print is that only applies to rooms you paid for. Um, if you play enough to reach Paiza, you're always getting your room comped anyway. Nothing like a "benefit" you can never actually use.

    Wynn has an upgrade thing to Tower Suites if your the highest tier. More than likely you got a host and they are putting you in Tower suites anyways. One of those filler perks..
