Turn Rampart Rewards Into Bonvoy Points
Miles to Memories Facebook Group member Melanie posted a pretty cool promo going on just outside Las Vegas. The Rampart Casino, with attached JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa, is offering casino members the chance to earn Bonvoy points instead of Rampart Rewards (their loyalty program). The casino and hotel is in Summerlin, about 25 minutes from the strip, and looks like a really nice property.
This is a pretty unique opportunity for gamblers and something that I think is amazingly generous. Could you imagine if MGM allowed this to happen with Hyatt points? A man can dream, can’t he? The really crazy thing is this gives people a lot more value versus the normal rewards.
Details On The Promotion
After seeing the flyer in our Facebook group I called to get some more information from the players club. Here is the breakdown on earnings:
- You can earn 1 Bonvoy point for every $1 bet on reels and video reels slot machines.
- You can earn 1 Bonvoy point for every $2 bet on video poker
- Have to transfer into 200 point increments
- You have to be a guest at the hotel to be eligible.
At first I figured the amount you are able to transfer would be limited, but the only limitation is that you need to be a hotel guest to be eligible. They said that any previously accrued points would be eligible as well during your stay. This is nuts really! I’ll show you why when we crunch the numbers.
Crunching The Numbers
What is really surprising here is the conversion rate. Normally Casino points are worth around a penny a piece but with Rampart Rewards points the conversion is 1,000 points = $1 or $0.001 per point. This must be why the loyalty account earn rates seemed high to me.
With this being a 1 to 1 transfer to Bonvoy points you can get 5 or 6 times more value. That is because Marriott Bonvoy points are worth $0.005-$0.006 each. So you are getting $5 – $6 per 1,000 points instead of $1. That is a pretty substantial return on your gambling in my opinion.
Turn Rampart Rewards Into Bonvoy Points: Final Thoughts
I like this promotion since it gives people options, and more value. The casino and JW Marriott have always been run separately but on the same property. It is nice to see them working together on this offer though. I don’t mind requiring the hotel stay to be eligible since previously accrued points work too. So you could gamble there for a few days and then book the stay. It looks like a nice break from the strip and I have always heard great things about downtown Summerlin.
If I had planned on doing some serious gambling I think this would change my plans for an upcoming trip. The value just seems to good to pass up from serious slot players that also like hotel points.
