What's the best credit card for Vegas hotels + clubbing?

Postby lexrj » Fri Sep 14, 2012 1:59 pm

I go to Vegas a lot and and spend some money on the Vegas strip hotels (not interested on Marriot, Hilton and etc, I usually stay at the Mirage) and clubs regularly, so I was wondering if there is a credit card out there that I can benefit from that spending category?

PS: the only rewards card I currently have is the AMEX BCP

From what I've seen so far is possibly getting any visa signature card. I looked at their website and of you book three nights at the aria they give you $200a wine and food credit. This might be as close as you can get. I also frequent vegas a lot. Lol at least once every other month.

well considering who actually qualifies for the centurion card, it only makes sense that retailers, club owners, and restaurant owners would make special exceptions for them. They hold a tremendous amount of purchasing power in their palm and have a much higher potential of spending than pretty much any other person in the club.

though, i doubt Faststr8 is dropping 5 figure amounts on drinks and tables these days ;)
