Don't bother getting a casino card. I have a Gold card and have no incentive anymore to try to keep it. The VIP lounge is now only available to Onyx card holders. Menial discounts are given with a Gold card for the Spa and golf course, neither of which I use. I am given very few slot dollars to use and they can only be used on certain days. Gold card members get two days at the Tropicana in Vegas but it does not include airfare and, for the price of airfare, there are better package deals for more days at other casinos in Vegas. The Saturday gift 'giveaways' are usually mongrel brand items that most people really don't need. Gold card members used to have special drawings and banquet type events, awesome meals in the VIP lounge (which, by the way, are now always pasta and mystery meat), preferred seating at events and, basically, made to feel more appreciated. Not anymore. Might be time to explore other area casinos if you are looking for recognition for being a loyal customer.
