    Since I am back in good graces with Mrs. Funkhouser again it is time to start planning my next gaming diversion to LV for 2013.

    Current offer box is full of Comp nights and pretty good FP for multiple April dates, however the current offers end at Pai Gow Tournament 1st weekend in May. Any other CET folks have any strong marketing Vegas event promos besides the corp room mailing. These usually show up in my offer box as: Free Nights in Las Vegas over three months.

    I can always get free rooms on other dates, but going with my maximize my comp offers April looks to be best month in Vegas for comps, with Tunica / AC offers great for summer months now.

    Current April offers I have are:

    - Taylor Hicks or Million Dollar Quartet
    - Paris Handicapping Contest
    - Great Gift Reach Around Event
    - Macys or Casino Play Giveaway
    - $200K Drawing and Free Play
    - PHo VP Tournament
    - PHo Free Play

    summer offers

    I have room offers with a little free food through July, but no freeplay money after May. I am going on Wednesday for few days, we'll see if anything new shows up after.

    I haven't gotten our may offers yet. I'm checking everyday so we can book our stay.

    CET in Vegas seems to be tight on offers other than free rooms. So, I just go with the room bookings - other than concerts, most of the offers are so little they have little impact on my bookings. $50 in food here, $50 gift something there. Sure, $50 is $50 - but I usually do not sit at a machine without putting a few hundred dollar bills in to start.

    My Tunica offers never go that far ahead. Right now the latest I have is April. For Vegas CET properties I have a couple that go through May or later but nothing that starts in May or later. Make sure to check online too -- mine always show up their well before I get any mailer.

    Yeah, it looks like they've only sent out offers through May so far. I just got an offer to the grand tasting in May. It is the first thing they've ever given me that interests me, but unfortunately I already have plans for that weekend. :(

    Still nothing for June or July.

    I have some of the generic "free nights in Vegas" ones that go into June and I have one for BOGO show tickets and $50 resort credit that goes into July, but everything else ends in May as of right now.

    Slot tourny
    Pai Gow tourny
    Kentucky Derby party with FP
    Poker tourny

    I have the one with the 7" Galaxy tab, too. My husband has the 10" and it is awesome, so we might take this one...

    I just got the KY derby party with a low FP offer. Never did Vegas for the KY derby, so I may consider that offer. I have a tentative booking for memorial day weekend, but I may dump that for a better offer. The tablet offer I have, has a crappy Colby tablet on the mailer.

    Yah, I was surprised that I didn't have any with just free play or f&b comp. I usually have some with $100 of either. The KY derby one I go came with $50...

    That is weird that they would have offers with different devices like that. I wonder how they figure out what to offer to whom and why...

    I got the exact same KY derby offer. Right now the PHo FP for April is the best I have.
    Its usually marketing and the CET "Bozo-puter" spits out the offer based on ADT and tier level, same way other properties can troll the marketing databases and send cross property mailers.

    For example last month I got a random mailing for Horseshoe Hammond with free play etc. I had not been to that place in like 3 years but got 3 $100 FP for 3 months and some decent food comps coupons.

    My CET play has been all over the board in Q12013, with me low playing some properties where I was not on a good comp since I travel alot. Vegas got some heavy action last year in Q4 so my offers have been really good for Jan - May of 2013. Lots of free play, private event offers, and rooms.

    AC must have figured out they lost money on my presidents day trip, because they just stuck a 6 month offer for one free night. I don't expect I will see another airfare, room, and FP offer for awhile.

    Since CET is ending the whole "TR Insiders" program at the end of March, I am sucking up the last of premium comps. They have been giving me crappy gift or 15,000 reward credits each month for the last 6. I have been taking the reward credits and burned thru a chunk in NOLA in Jan since you could redeem them for non CET dining at nearby partner restaurants. I am just about 2K tier credits short for diamond in 2013, I plan to low play CET after my April trip which I should make diamond for 2014.

    I already have some good offers at other properties in Vegas so I don't have to rely on CET. I was thinking about giving Wynn around 5K of coin in next trip to see if I can re-trigger the $300 FP and 3 free nights offer I got 2 years ago, otherwise I plan to move over to the Trop / The D downtown for the rest of the year after April trip unless the CET offers are really good. I think they are going to F all the low level diamonds with the program revamp coming in April.

    You know the "comp yourself" program includes Hookers & Blow, right? :wink2:

    Yah, I get those crazy ones wanting to fly me to Reno or Laughlin all the time even though we never go there. I also get silly little $25 food or free play for Rincon, even though we never go there and $25 would certainly not entice me. I did just get another one last night for May that's pretty good so they seem to be trickling in...

    3 Nights with $150 to use at Serendipity 3, Margarittaville, Gordon Ramsey BRGR, KGB and Burger Brasserie (does not have to be used in one sitting) plus another $100 toward the Bacchanal buffet. We only go for three nights, so I'm not sure we could possibly eat enough to use this up.

    BeeeJay,
    Mrs. Funkhouser was reading over my shoulder and said she had upfront comped me during the 6 years we dated, and I under played her. I basically have negative comps in the F!-Life program. I am just trying to get back to even.:cry:

    If I switch to another "property" for sexual comps, she will call in all my markers. My brother in law handles collections and is a mean dude. It would be a back room beat down like they did in 50's and I'd end up in a hole in the desert. No self comping at least for hookers:nono:
