    if you buy a loaf of bread for $2 and tomorrow they raise the price to $3 do you have to go back to the store and give them another dollar?

    let me put it a different way. if you buy a cow from a farmer and tomorrow it gets hit by lightning and dies, can you force the farmer to give you your money back?

    If I buy a plane ticket today for $484 and tomorrow it costs $783, will I have to pay the difference?


    (okay...maybe we are being a bit smart - but, once an offer is booked, you are fine)

    In a nutshell, you have to read the fine print. Some offers have lots of restrictions, usually involving blackout dates or time between using back-to-back offers. Some offers are good for multiple stays – some are not. Most offers have nothing to do with play requirements. Of course, if you don't play enough, you'll stop getting offers, but that's as far as it goes.

    None of the offers I've ever used, and I use a lot, have any kind of playing requirements. For example, I'm using a bunch of offers in 3 weeks, and I'm also booking rooms under offers for December. Nothing I do this month, even if I don't gamble at all (perish the thought) or even show up will affect anything in December. The only time I've seen an offer withdrawn (before making reservations) is when they've run out of rooms. Once you're booked – you're good to go.

    What if it was not an offer but something a host hooks you up with?

    as long as he puts it in the system, you're good. that's the reason they usually won't book more than 2 or 3 trips out at a time. if your play lowers, they don't want to be locked into 6 trips at RFB over the next several months.

    casinoman, this is a confusing thread. I put your 4 posts altogether, in order to obtain a clear picture of your situations and your concerns.

    1) You received a marketing offer and you already booked it by yourself online or through Casino Marketing (not your host). This is for your Nov 22-25 trip. You received a reservation confirmation. Correct?

    2) Somehow you also called your host. He hooked you up and booked a reservation for October. This one is totally different from your November trip. Your host may or may not know about your November reservation via marketing offer. Correct?

    3) You worry that you may not play enough in October to reach the level of receiving the comped room given by your host. Correct?

    ==> If (1) (2) and (3) are correct; then, your November reservation is a done deal. No one will cancel or delete it.

    ==> If you don't play or play low in October (i.e., cheat on your host), your host won't be happy, due to he over comped you . He will never help you in the future. I don't think he will delete your November reservation (booked via marketing offer). You just ruin the faith/trust relationship between you and the host. If you have long-history of heavy plays and good ADT, your host may accept the one-time low play. If you don't have that good historical records, you will just break that tie.

    Hope this answer your question.

    You already booked one offer twice; via casino marketing and your host; respectively.

    Are you getting another brand new offer which is totally different from the offer we've been discussing throughout this thread? If so, you can book the new offer online or thru casino marketing. If not, I really don't think you can turn any magic! MLife system will not be fooled.

    The host will clearly see that you have a reservation when he books your next one. I've had it happen.
