Wynn Moves Red Card Online

We've sung the praises of Harrahs' Total Rewards program numerous times. It's not so much for their (lack of) generosity or network of properties, but the total package. Once logged in to the TR website, you can access their entire network of casinos to see the rates they offer, promotions available to you, your win/loss statements, etc. And they've had this going for years now.

Contrast that to Wynn. While others were going completely electronic, Wynn actually made you call in for a win/loss statement and leave a message on a random guy's answering machine. If I wanted to see if I qualify for casino rate, I had to find my old Red Card, call the number on the back, and speak with Resort Marketing. So 2006.

But last night while checking rates for Podcast-a-Palooza, I was taken aback by what I saw on the reservations page. What is this "Red Card Membership" on the upper right?

You can create a new account online or register your existing one. Once registered, you're presented with an easy-to-use interface that lets you access your promotions, contact information, win/loss statements, etc. Way cooler, far cleaner, and more intuitive than MGM's Player's Club or Harrah's Total Rewards. You can bet I registered the moment I could, scoring the coveted handle of "Mike" before it got snatched up.

Why am I making a big deal about all this? Because this is Wynn. These are the guys who've been the butt of all Vegas website jokes. And sure, while their Flash monstrosity is still going strong, we have to give them credit for the come-from-behind, super intuitive access to your Red Card account.

VT's pick for worst comp club has certainly made a complete 180. Well done.

System takes forever to loan and then freezes before it will log you in. Good luck.

Progress! Technology! Innovation!

Great news. Entered my Red Card # and activated account with no problem. I found it odd that this is on the Reservations page, but I couldn't find any reference to online accounts on the Casino's Red Card page.
My points are 142. That's also odd since they expire after a year, and I haven't been to Wynn since '06. Since I still get marketing offers, they may just keep a few points on my account to keep it active, hoping I'll return.

Had no problem signing up and logging in. So far the only offers I have are those available to everyone through the main reservation page. Time will tell whether this develops into something worthwhile, but at least it is a step in the right direction.

system's super buggy and not intuitive whatsoever. maybe marginally better than players club due to a slick interface.
i can't access any casino information...it takes me to the room reservation page.
i'm pretty sure i should have points and/or slot play, however i now may know less than i did previously.
