I keep getting email offers. 

Maybe I'm thinking of another card?  There was a flyer about it at our OTB many times.  When the other card was obsolete.

Is this one only for Churchill players?

I play all of those tracks.  But the rewards are only for "at the track?" 

In person?  (like get in free, etc.?")

You have to bet at one of their facilities, and run your card through a machine when you bet, so they can track you. After you have bet $20,000 and rung up 80,000 points, you can get a free lime green Frankenstein Pez dispenser key chain, or a track program for that day. If you can hold off until 150,000 points, there's a free Coke with your name on it. Medium.

How can you NOT use that card.

Everytime I even think about using that card I have black and white images in my head of Raymond Burr as Perry Mason interrogating me on the witness stand at my future divorce trial ( I love my wife and don't REALLY expect this); but regardless the *** is holding up my twin spires card and the records he has subpoenaed  from AP and he asks me point blank what were you doing at the track on a FREAKING WEDNESDAY?! 

If you see me at the track feel free to swipe your card on my bets.

If your at the track you might as well use the TWIN SPIRES CARD you are leaving something on the table.

What would always kill me was it was 1500 pts for a simulcast program in IL but 1000 in IN when CD still owned HOOSIER PARK.AP overprices everything.

There isn't any reason to use it unless just to stay on the mailing list.
The points/prize structure is an insult.

I agree it is not the greatest program out there but if you are betting CDI tracks and not doing anything else you are leaving money on the table.I had a very good quarter in 05 and got upgraded to gold for 06 and believe me I got my money's worth for 06.

It must be a different card they are trying to talk me into.

I free soft drink, I'm not interested in.

I think the only card you are eligible to get is the Golden State Rewards network card. That's some better than a free soft drink for 80,000 points, but I don't know the details.

Hey - something I learned today - AIRPORT concession prices are lower than AP.
