Rewarding players for having fun, the Foxwoods Rewards program allows members to earn valuable points each time their card is used playing the endless array of slots and table games. Points for players can be spent for luxurious accommodations in any of the four sprawling hotels, tickets to performances by headlining entertainment, or world-class boxing, divine dining, shopping or sensuous spas. In addition to all Foxwoods property perks, players can also use their cards at the recently opened Rewards store, where cardholders can shop more than 100,000 brand name products such as LG Electronics, Sony, SMS Audio by 50, Baby Cargo, Dyson, Brookstone, Keurig, Nikon, Tumi, SodaStream, Weber and more.
Reward Card Trade-Up
