Harrah's just announced this years promotion. Start's 7/1 and ends 10/1. Check Harrah's TR for all the rules and regulations. But what's listed below is what can be earned. I will say I liked last years better and 2010 the best.

Receive 8 to 10 CheckPoints and receive 25,000 Rewards Credits
Receive11 to 14 CheckPoints and receive 50,000 Reward Credits
Receive 15+ CheckPoints and receive 75,000 Rewards Credits

The biggest negative this year is that many areas have been combined. I went to Reno, Tahoe, Vegas, Laughlin, Phoenix Ak Chin, and San Diego Rincon last year for six visits, which earned the top level of 60K.

This year, that same trip counts for three visits and six checkpoints, earning only the lowest (10K) level.

You also have to earn 25 reward credits at a single property, rather than just 1.

All true, it seems they make it harder each year?

I don't even have the desire to participate in this one. Last year's was great...I tried Harrah's Rincon for the first time because of it and went back again this year. But this promo just isn't worth the effort.

Anyone interested in swapping cards. I have Phoenix, Laughlin, Vegas and Possibly San Diego for the right trade off.

I can get to 7 pretty easy, but after that it would take some extra trips. Not sure it is worth going beyond 6, but we shall see. Having a 100 in comps for both me and my wife would be a nice offset to the cost of a room

Atlantic City
Caesars - No ID needed but they have the machines next to VIP check in for swiping. Had to ask a few people before finally finding it. Easy enough though.

Philadelphia
Machine was on the 3rd floor near the elevators and Liberty Bell. Simple swipe, no ID.

Las Vegas (Rio)
The swipe machine was at the TR desk, they were busy as usual so they didn't request any ID, YMMV. You could swipe it yourself however the desk person has to reach over and click the mouse to allow the next person to swipe. Not efficient but it works.

AC Local

Can do AC and Chester/Philadelphia (for a total of four points any time). Should also be going to Tunica and Vegas before the promotion is over (For another 6 points). I don't have dates for that yet. PM me if you are interested in trading. I have two cards - one of which is diamond so you can get free parking, etc out of the deal.

I am looking specifically for:
Louisiana (not New Orleans)
Tunica
Arizona/San Diego
Cleveland
Canada
Kansas City
Iowa
Metropolis, IL

So Harrahs...

Why do I get my first email notification about this promotion on July 13th?

Are you sharing UA's IT department?

Cleveland and windsor

Anyone know if they have kiosks there to swipe the cards or do you have to go to the TR desk?

At Planet Hollywood in Vegas

You had to go to the Total Rewards desk and show ID as well as your TR card and they "swiped" it for you. There were no kiosks to use.

Right behind the diamond total rewards line at Caesars AC, is a special check-in machine for this promo.

Correction: the machine I mentioned above, is for a different promo.

Hello,

PM me if anyone needs San Diego.

Las Vegas Laughlin also available (but I know people like to make that trip from wherever they are).
