The gaming company announced today that users of its popular Caesars Rewards Visa Card will be eligible to increase their tier status in addition to earning points.

Under this expanded program, they will also earn Tier Credits that accumulate and unlock higher status levels and benefits through the Caesars Rewards program. All new and current Caesars Rewards Visa cardholders will automatically be eligible to earn Reward Credits and Tier Credits under the new program,” according to a statement issued by the casino giant.

The Caesars Rewards Visa is issued in partnership with Bread Financial, specializing in private label and co-brand credit cards, installment lending, buy now, and pay later (BNPL).

More Perks Revealed

Caesars Rewards has over 65 million members, making it the gaming industry’s largest loyalty program.

The new tier credit offering allows card members to earn 2,500 credits and an upgrade to platinum status following the first purchase outside of a Caesars’ venue. Clients can also generate 10,000 reward points and 2,500 tier credits with $1,000 spent in the first three months when the spend occurs outside of a Caesars’ Rewards location. By spending $5,000 or more annually, cardholders earn 5,000 tier credits.

“Additionally, members can earn five times the Reward Credits for every dollar spent at Caesars Rewards destinations, and two times the Reward Credits for every dollar spent on restaurants, travel, and entertainment outside of Caesars Entertainment,” according to the statement.

By number of venues, Caesars is the largest casino operator in the US. But members of its loyalty platform can accrue points through the Caesars Sportsbook app and at non-gaming hotels.
