Diamonds, iPods, chocolates, oh my! What if an entire year’s worth of vacationing and gambling revelry added up to redeemable gift points to shop until your heart’s content? Christmas is officially less than two months away, but Total Rewards members (sign up for free) can have all their seasonal shopping done in one stop as the annual Great Gift Wrap Up returns on Nov. 7-11 at Flamingo and Dec. 4-8 at Caesars Palace, with both days operating from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Now in its eighth year (with a whopping 2.3 billion points redeemed last year), the Great Gift Wrap Up is an incentivized shopping extravaganza for Total Rewards members, as months and months worth of qualified play can add up to serious points and swanky gift giving. Since Jan. 1, customers have received one Gift Point for every Reward Credit earned in all participating Total Rewards properties, running through the Dec. 8 promotion period.

What’s hot at Great Gift Wrap Up

Not only has the shopping event come back with a bang, but it’s also the first time a “jackpot” item is up for grabs: a Hovercraft Golf Cart LE, an exact replica of the BW1 hovercraft golf cart designed for Masters Champion Bubba Watson. As one of few built in the world, think of it as an ultra-modern luxury golf cart—on steroids. Behind the wheel, be the James Bond of the golf course, as it effortlessly glides over fairway grass, water, sand traps and ice.

Shop ‘til you drop

The dream shopping event features everything from fine jewelry to home goods, electronics, sporting equipment, travel accessories, perfume and plenty of gifts that you can say “Happy Holidays” with—even to yourself. (Hello, steak of the month club.) The best part? Every item is shipped directly to the address provided by Dec. 24, whether you’re giving—or getting—some brand-new toys. Points can be redeemed for gifts, Reel Rewards and even gaming vouchers (with some exceptions), but be sure to spend every point you have—they expire on Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. There’s still time to rack up points for the Great Gift Wrap Up before the first event date on Nov. 7, so revel in the slot machine ding-ding-ding, place your bets or hit the tables.
