LAS VEGAS, NEVADA and TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Caesars Entertainment and Advantex Marketing International Inc. (CSE:ADX) have joined together to develop a program where members of Caesars Entertainment's award-winning Total Rewards loyalty program now have even more ways to earn rewards in their everyday lives when they use their Total Rewards card at participating local retailers in select cities. The Total Rewards program has teamed up with Advantex Marketing International, Inc. to expand the brick-and-mortar footprint of the Total Rewards Marketplace. The expansion, which started with 44 participating locations in Memphis, Tenn. and Tunica, Miss., will include locations in Nashville, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Mo. and Omaha, Neb.
"Total Rewards is continually seeking new and more meaningful ways of creating benefits for our members in their everyday lives," said Michael Marino, Vice President of Customer Loyalty for Caesars Entertainment. "The expansion of the Total Rewards Marketplace from a primarily online retail forum to brick-and-mortar establishments that our members regularly frequent allows members to derive even more value from participation in the program. Now, many of our members can earn Total Rewards Reward Credits every day when they shop, dine, golf or go to the spa in their hometowns."
To take advantage of the additional opportunity to earn rewards, members must swipe their Total Rewards card during check-out at participating retail locations. At most participating retailers, Total Rewards members will earn one Reward Credit for every one dollar they spend (unless otherwise specified at TotalRewards.com/EarnLocally).
"This marks a defining moment for Advantex and a significant business opportunity for us in the U.S. marketplace," said Kelly Ambrose, Advantex Marketing International CEO. "We're thrilled to be partnering with a global leader like Caesars Entertainment and their award-winning Total Rewards loyalty program to bring even greater rewards to their members."
More information and a list of participating retailers may be found online at TotalRewards.com/EarnLocally.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
