    Coming soon you’ll be able to link your SPG and Total Rewards accounts so that starting January 9, 2014, you can redeem Starpoints for stays at over 15 participating Caesars Entertainment hotels in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Lake Tahoe and more. Plus, you’ll earn Starpoints and SPG elite qualifying nights credits at Caesars Entertainment hotels (in addition to Reward Credits earned as a Total Rewards member).

    But that’s not all, starting today, you can redeem Starpoints for exclusive access to amazing experiences – including a Platinum member-only celebration weekend in Las Vegas, and so much more through Moments by SPG. Spots for the Las Vegas weekend celebration are limited so redeem now at SPG.com/moments.

    To learn more, visit spg.com/caesars.

    Checking out of Casesars on 1/9/14 after two nights. Will I qualify for stay credit to SPG?

    Unfortunately, no. As a registered SPG - Total Rewards participant, there are no stay credits being given; only eligible night credits. Also, the benefit begins on the day you are checking out, so it doesn't fall within those parameters either.

    Sorry - I meant eligible night credit, I guess.

    But, in any event, thanks for the fast answer.

    Will there be any kind of Tier matching between SPG's elite tiers and the Caesar's tiers?

    I wouldn't call this a "win-win". The lack of stay credits and platinum benefits, makes this a bust situation for me.

    Also, the night credits you will earn on your Caesars stays don’t count towards SPG lifetime Gold or Platinum status either.

    So it's better than nothing, but it's pretty close to nothing.

    Well said, as for me, it means nothing. Don't see any value at this "Starwood play" in Vegas.

    Make that pretty "too close" for comfort.

    Hoping that this Starwood and Caesars reciprocal points earning/redeeming agreement is just a start of a long and mutually valuable relationship to their members as I am assuming that the benefits and options will increase by time.

    Just when I thought "they should have done that right from the beginning".

    I guess this is the equivalent of what SPG and Delta did. Not much value unless you're already an elite in the Ceasar's program in which case, I guess it's a nice supplemental benefit.

    Compared the powerful Hyatt/MGM hook-up or the fact that the Venetian/Palazzo basically are an IC for all meaningful purposes, this is kind of a snooze for someone like me who makes one trip to Vegas a year.

    Better to have an earning/redeeming option than not have one.

    Man - Caesars Vegas is just terrible. Besides getting woken up by a 5 am alarm that I didn't set, I've been trying to connect my Total Rewards garbage to SPG. They can't get me a login at the desk. I have to call. On hold now for over half an hour.

    These guys at Caesars suck. Nothing like SPG. Can't see ever staying here again.

    Hi alfagirl,

    No. The event was very popular and sold out fairly immediately after it was announced.

    SPG members can now redeem Starpoints for stays at 15+ Caesars Entertainment Casinos & Hotels.

    If you haven't done so already, link your SPG and Total Rewards account at SPG.com/Caesars to earn 2 Starpoints per dollar spent on Caesars stays and night credit towards SPG elite. Be sure to check out Moments by SPG for exclusive experiences in Las Vegas and beyond including a chance to stay in The Hangover Suite at Caesars Palace.

    And, for another chance to win big, starting Monday January 13, visit SPG.com/takeaspin daily. Each time you play our slots game you'll be entered to win an all inclusive trip for two to our Vegas VIP weekend, plus daily instant prizes.
