Thank you.

Which casino company issues these? Do you mean Bconnected Social Points?

If you mean Bconnected Social Points they can only be used to enter prize draws on the Bconnected web site.

If you are referring to the social rewards program that gives CET points they put those right on your TR card. It just increases your balance on there. So you can use it just as you would any other points on your TR card.

I had redeemed for Luxor for 2 margaritas - doubt I will use those. I had to wait for a mailed voucher. Then I have to contact them before I use it, etc. Not worth the hassle.

But the CET redemptions are great - just watch your balance go up.

thank you. i'm referring to the social rewards CET offer by tweeting etc. I've actually never used (or accumulated points) on my card. So, how does this work please?

I would like to know more about this too. Do you have to have accounts on Twitter/Facebook/foursquare to make the most out of the Total Rewards social rewards? How much effort do you put in daily and what kind of points can you rack up (say, per month). Is the value worth the time?

You initially will make a decent amount. Then when you have maxed out the things on there, they cycle through at being able to redo about every 7 days - 4 days for some of the CET. I figure I make between .50 & 1.50 nearly every day of the week - I figure I come close to $5 each week. You need to have Twitter & Facebook linked to your social rewards. You also need to sign up at Klout. You need to build up a klout score to be able to redeem.

Once you have a total of 1000 points across the CET props you can then redeem & shift from one property to the one you are redeeming at. (In other words you don't need to get 1000 points at a single CET prop to redeem).

You will first receive a conformation from SR that you have redeemed. Then you will receive a confirmation from CET. Within about 3 days after the confrimation the points will be deposited into your account.

It takes only a couple minutes of your time each day. You can do up to 3 shares per day, but as I mentioned, once you have gone thru all of the things, the Join Rewards posts are one time a week except with TR where it is like 4 days. I have a little notepad sheet I write the next day I can do it on so I am not hunting thru all of the props every day. Yesterday I only got one for CET props - today I can do 3 again. I have filled in my 'off' days with the V/P items - but haven't redeemed yet for a 'free desert' at CUT - I just don't know that they would be that happy with me coming in & ordering desert only lol!!!

They were putting up new questions about once a week for a property too but they haven't added any new questions in at least 4 weeks.
