Was actually delighted -- Trop finally revamped their reward card system with 5 different card levels. I know this is long but I thought it might be of interest to the board to see the benefits. Received my letter yesterday:
“The Advantage Life is here. Tropicana Casino & Resort is happy to announce the arrival of our new players club Trop Advantage.
I wanted to be the first to let you know that with this new club, you have achieved one of our most elite membership levels – PLATINUM CARD LEVEL!

Plus, with Trop Advantage, there are more tiers. As a PLATINUM CARD MEMBER, you can play to earn even more rewards at the BLACK CARD LEVEL. In order to upgrade, simply earn 750,000 points from April 1-March 31. With Trop Advantage you will earn Tier Points 10X faster!"
I love that you will be able to use comps at on a 1-1 basis in the quarter for restaurants and shopping. I also love the stays in Lake Tahoe and Aruba and the earning of Tier Points 10X faster. Apparently there will be a charge for the club of $5 per person but that doesn't really bother me and it's less than anybody else is charging.
Not sure of the numbers to earn the tier levels. I had about 250,000 points so I'm thinking that will earn you Platinum Level -- Black Level could be 750,000 or a million??? -- will ask at the desk when I pick up cards.
Prior to this everybody was lumped in this awful middle card hell of VIP so I for one am really happy with this change. Wonder if finally the Borgata will recognize Platinum for an upgrade to Black Level -- we'll see.
