How To Sign Up For Las Vegas Loyalty Programs & What You Get When You Do

You can oftentimes get perks for just signing up for loyalty programs. Hotels will give free WiFi to even base members of their program, and having a rental car membership can help you skip the line at the airport counter. While people will usually sign up for these if they travel occasionally, one other place to join loyalty programs is often overlooked. Las Vegas.

Now, this article isn’t for the people who spend hours upon hours at the casino. Those people already know to get a club card to track their gambling. After all, that’s how casinos can tell how much you’re spending and provide you with comps for meals, shows, rooms or all three depending on how much money you lose bet.

I’m also not talking to those who know how to parlay one type of hotel status into top tier status at one casino and then match that status at all the casinos by hopping from one to another and then turn that back into a different top tier hotel status. For those of you who do this, I salute your dedication.
