Giving someone your player's card.

I gave my player's card to someone for my favorite casino and some cash to use next week while they are in Vegas. I am not going to Vegas until next year and I wanted to get a few more points and maybe it will help with my offers. Has anyone done this and if so how much would you give someone to play on your card.

I'd give them all of my money. Hey, by the way, I'm going next week, so why don't you send me your card and all your money, and I guarantee I'll send you any winnings. Really. You can trust me.

Then he hits a huge progressive.. was it YOUR money, or HIS?

Sure, you get more comped rooms and buffets, but, NO GLORY PLAYAH!

Steve Wynn gives him his own room, he has women throwing themself at his feet., Richard Branson sends a jet, P Diddy sends some Cristal to chill with.

I've done it wirh my Harrah's card because of their silly 6 month expiration. But then only $5.00 or $10.00. Just enough to add a couple of points and keep what I have active.

I was prepared for smart *ss answers, but not that fast. I am not not talking a small fortune. I am talking about a family member and 20 or 30 dollars. I know that as long as your card is in a machine that is being played you are earning points. If someone is lucky you can play quite a while on 20 or 30 dollars and the points do add up.

I tape my players card to my coffee pot when I leave it at the front desk of my hotel for an incoming guest.

If you thought the rules of the loyalty program why did you join?

"I joined because at the time I became a member that rule was not in effect. I joined at the Flamingo before they became a part of Harrah's and they did not have that short an expiration time limit.. Unfortunately, I'm not rich enough to get to Vegas every 6 months and do not have a Harrah's property in the immediate area.

Remember it is not the amount of points but the daily average bets through the machines that count for comps
