    i am mlife platinum for years
    have had a suite, limo, free play, etc for years.
    had over 350,000 tier credits again by sept 30 for platinum

    got my fall offer...horrible

    dropped to a deluxe room, very little free play or resort credit

    is this happening to everyone?

    Doesn't sound right, that's for sure. Can you provide specifics, such as hotel, # of days, $ amounts of free play/resort credits? Thanks.

    IMO, that makes no sense at all. I just received an offer for 3 comp nights at the Mirage, $100 in free play and resort credits and I'm no where near platinum. Strange indeed.

    OP's offer is better than mine. I only have $150 FP and $150 resort credit.
    Last year's offer was much better.

    she really didnt give any reason, just to call her before my next trip.
    i told her this was my highest tier points ever and my lowest offer...no other comment from her.
    maybe vegas is doing better than previous years, so giving less comps?

    I have been platinum for years as well. Usually around 300,000 credits for 2-3 trips. My fall offers are terrible. They actually gave me only 2 nights at most places. Barely any resort credit and 200 free play.

    Aria ,where i usually stay, is still three nights in a suite and 300 credit and 300 free play. Thats about what i usually get.

    The corporate offer is terrible though.

    My Mlife fall offers are horrible. The only comp nights I'm being offered are at Luxor - even though I've only ever stayed, or played, at Aria. However, I called Aria VIP services (no host) and was told I had comp nights, resort credit, and freeplay available from them direct, which I booked. I think that maybe that last huge "upgrade" to the Mlife website has somehow screwed up the offers coming through. Why would they even post "prevailing rate" under offers???

    Our offers were downgraded at Aria too in spite of the fact that we are platinum and played more than ever on our last trip. Very disappointing because we love Aria and seem to win there.

    For my 2015 stays at MGM properties, my ADT went way up because I stayed fewer days and had good luck, so did way more coin in than in past years, and in a shorter amount of time.

    Corporate offers - Freeplay went up a lot, # of free nights went down, Resort Credit stayed the same

    Property offers (Aria and MGM Grand ) - Freeplay stayed the same, room type got better, Resort Credit went way up.

    I'm with everyone else on here. My fall offers are only comped rooms for the shitty properties, Excal, NY NY & Luxor and even that is now just week days with 1 paid night on a 2 night stay. My direct offers are still in line. Delano 3 nights $250 resort credit or Aria 3 nights $150 resort etc. Why my corporate offers suck so bad is beyond me. In a new twist I'm now showing MGM Grand Detroit online with a prevailing rate. thats new.

    It seems to me that with MLIfe calling the VIP number to the resort you want to stay or calling your host (I'm not at that level yet because I like to stay at Aria) is always your best bet. I have always been treated better that way than trying to use an offer or their website. For my trip next week it looked like Saturday was sold out and at first VIP services couldn't get me a room. After a few minutes everything was taken care of. With MLife always take the time to call.

    And yes the snail mail I got last night was horrible.

    Saturday the 24th. No king rooms. They had other rooms available. Sold out might not have been my best choice of words.

    Maybe something has happened to the OP's ADT? Usually though, someone with that many tier credits also plays heavy. And of course, offers are not tied to tier level, but to ADT, but still...

    I stopped trying to figure out Mlife corporate offers, and just use the property specific offers, or a Host. I don't think being Platinim, or any other card color determines anything either. I had just over 1 million TCs before the reset and my Fall offer is for 3 free night in a Deluxe Room. I have another Fall Adventure corporate offer that says I can stay at MB or Delano for as low as $19 per night.

    By going directly through my Host, I can usually get a suite, or 2 bedroom suite, depending on the property.

    I would not be too concerned with crappy corporate offers...just contact your Host.

    I think my issue with it is that i don't like contacted my host unless i know i am coming 100%. Sometimes i like to see whats out there for me in offers and if its a good one maybe that sways me into going. Then i contact my host. Tell me what i could get on the MLIFE site so i dont have to call or email my host. I like dreaming sometimes. Maybe i can get away this weekend and then it doesnt happen.

    I completely understand that. I am also the same.
    As sindustry said above, I just ignore the crappy corporate offers, and use the property specific offers.
    (BTW, I also received some decent offers from Beau Rivage even though I've never been to Mississippi coast in my life.)
    The problem is if I ever want to stay at Excalibur (God forbid) I would have to use the corporate offers,
    because I never get any property specific offer from them.
