TR AC Harrahs ?

I am only a lowly Gold member with TR, but for some reason If I log into my account and book a room for a bachelor party I am planning it is over 40 bucks more with taxes and all than if I dont log in and act like a normal person.

Do you get credit on your TR account when purchasing a room etc ?

I am curious and couldnt figure out why ?

I know I have all kinds of free comps to Vegas and New Orleans, is there a way to get a better price in Atl City ?

Thanks !

The AC market is tough (especially for Friday and Saturday nights). You might want to view the award calendar closely; since there is often a variation in prices between the properties.

Sometimes, non-total reward package deals can also be a better price than what is being offered. While Total Rewards is a 'national' program, if you haven't had much play in the Atlantic City markets; you won't get very good rates for AC hotels on the weekend.

Another suggestion, is to have a 'companion' Total Rewards member listed on your reservation; if one of the other bachelor party participants is also a Total Rewards member.

You 'might' also want to look into a non-casino property in AC such as the Sheraton or Chelsea.

Thanks so much man for the reply, I do appreciate it... Yeah problem #1 is none of the guys I am going with gamble much. I am comp'd like I said in Vegas and New Orleans... That being said I have never been to AC before, Even though I live in the DC Metro area, sad I go out west and down south before a 4 hour drive up north LOL.

I think the bachelor wants to stay in a casino, which is fine with me. I just thought it was odd ya know.

Do you get "credits/points" if you stay under your TR # ? I dont think you do but am just curious.

Thanks Again !!

Yes, you get credit for dollars spent on your room folio (F&B/Entertainment) spend.

For entertainment purchases, every $1 ($1.10 in Canada) you spend = 1 Bonus Reward Credit, and your 5th ($5.50 in Canada) dollar becomes a Base Reward Credit, which also counts towards your Tier Score!
If your 'logged-in' Total Rewards rate, is higher than the 'non-logged-in' rate; you can call and have them book the lower rate. Another option, that is pretty decent for bachelor parties is the HOB (House of Blues) Suite at Showboat. It will 'usually' show up at a 'reduced rate' for previous players. Just be advised they have only one (or two) of these suites with two (queen) beds. Also, take a close look at some of the Total Rewards Atlantic City packages; as well as potential deals at other AC hotel properties.

One final thing you 'might' try, is contacting a host at your preferred property in Atlantic City, explaining you have never played at the AC Total Rewards Properties and see if they can 'offer up' a reduced or comp room rate. The hosts do have the power to issue a better/comp rate; especially for one who hasn't played in that market before. (of course, if your rating the the Vegas/New Orleans markets is not very good; this probably won't get you very far )
