Nice review. I'll probably grab the card, but I don't stay at Caesars properties all too much. Maybe my next Vegas trip.

Is it no annual fees if you spend a certain amount with the card annually, or just plain 0 fees?



No Fees.
Don't have to stay at Caesars, I'm staying downtown my next trip, simply use platinum status to jump the buffet line when I visit the strip
Can use the Caesars reward money for restaurants and Buffets at any Caesars property.
Who knows, maybe that big wheel will accept Caesars money. Don't see why not. All the establishments down that Linq alley should accept Caesars money.

What bank is it drawn on? I was offered this card some time ago, and was denied for some reason, dunno why. I'm a previous Diamond member, and have excellent credit history. It's drawn on a bizarre bank no one's heard of before, and there's many complaints online about it. I feel lucky to have escaped it despite all the benefits.

With all due respect, you can essentially buy and pay for an A+ rating with the BBB, it's meaningless.

I no longer use my Shell or Chevron cards. My TR card is now the only gas card for the wife and I (2x points). That's about 8000 points a year.



You must do a lot of driving.

If $1.00 spent = 1 reward credit then 8000 points would require you to spend $800,000.00 on gas!

Huh?

First of all, at one credit per $1 spent, that's only $8000 to get 8000 points.

Second, it's 2 credits per dollar for gasoline, so that's $4000 per year. Even if gas is only $3.20 a gallon, that's 1250 gallons; a car that gets 25 miles per gallon goes 31,250 miles, which is not unheard of - I used to put around 25,000 miles a year on my car, thanks to my 80-mile (round trip) daily commute.

Actually, I spend about $4000, 2x = about 8000 points.
