Thanks to contributor LT Howie and Train Wreck Trader, I had another amazing adventure in San Diego! SD is just a wonderful town with some of the best beach views just steps from the best happy hours I have seen (in PB of course). I just wanted to crank out a quick post of things learned with my quick trip here.
There is a smoky casino about an hour north of the city that participates in the Cesar’s Total Reward Program. I am not much of a gambler, but I have Diamond Status with Cesar’s that I got with my Founders Card. This point system also matches status and provides points transfers to the Wyndam rewards. You could earn points on booking a Total Rewards property and transfer them to Wyndham and book a nice hotel for 15,000 points.
I didn’t stay the night here, but sung by and took advantage of their Salute Card program which gave me a free buffet that I had to use in 24 hours. I decided to sign up and treat myself and Davey to a free dinner. This is offered for all active duty, but it appears to be a one time reward on sign up. The gaming was unremarkable, we ended up playing the most complicated version of Pai-Gow at $25 a hand, something that I don not recommend ever doing again.
The Diamond lounge was free for a limited time only (till 31 March 2018) for diamond members with less than 25,000 tier points. After that there will be a fee to enter. Not a bad lounge, free fountain drink, and energy drinks at the bar. Boozes were not free.
More to come once I get off this flight…
