Okay, through a referral on this board, I contacted a host and the host said they had made my reservations for 2 nights. Offered me less than I was expecting, but enough for my trip this time around, so wasn't going to fret over it. However, when I logged into my MLife account soon after the host booked my room, I noticed $200 had been wiped from my EC's. My corporate offer would actually be better than losing $200 EC's and I wouldn't have to worry about meeting any host's expectations. Would it be bad form, or even noticed, if I cancelled with the host and later re-booked with the corporate offer. This would be my second time using a host in Vegas, with my first experience being less than pleasant, even though everything did eventually get comped. At my $500/hand BJ average, I wasn't expecting this. Is there really much of an advantage to using a host? Is it common for the host to immediately raid your EC's? I am going to Tunica this weekend and I have very little EC's left. I never use a host there as the corporate offers give me everything I need, so I sometimes use EC's there, since they force those out first in Tunica.
