    Just logged into bconnectedonline.com and saw new offers posted for November!

    My offer code went from E to D. From two nights (Sunday through Thursday) to three nights (also Sun to Thurs) plus some free food.

    I suppose the upgrade in offer code was because I earned about 18000 tier points over 4 days in mid-June, which brought me up to Sapphire level.

    So, it appears that it takes some 4.5 months for your latest play to be reflected in their system, such that it can be tangibly used! That is, my play in mid-June affected my comp levels for November, 4.5 months away.

    This is doubly annoying because I already booked a September trip, too early to use the better comp offers.

    You figure that the change would be faster, since everything is computerized now!

    P.S. How long does it take to stop getting moderated on my posts? :)

    I should add that my offers are for MSS. I have played at California and Fremont as well, but I understand those properties will not send me offers as MSS is my "home casino". I have also played at both Suncoast and Sam's Town but I have yet to receive any offers from them.

    Next visit I plan to hit up Orleans and Gold Coast, and we'll see if they will generate any offers... Anyone have any tips?

    Same here. I've been checking daily; and as usual, get the heads-up on VMB before my new offers appear on BConnected. They'll go a long way toward determining hotels and dates for the Halloween trip.

    So strange! Why would I get mine faster than you guys?

    They must process them in batches, a few hundred/thousand bconnected members per day or something.

    I got mine for MSS for Nov. They're back to showing me a little more love. Back up to 4 nights and $35 in FP, up from $25,

    Code: G6NDAAB.
    Timspeed was always the expert on Boyd codes, so maybe he'll chime in.

    Hey Now!
    My Sam's Club offers for Nov. were slashed. From 5 nights/$50 a day food/$75 FP to 3 nights / $15 FP, no food. Put $23k thru in 3 days in May. But I also hit a nice $1 Progressive Royal. Also made Emerald the next day, but it was at Orleans. Funny but the gift for making Emerald, which I take it is a writing pen, is only good at Sam's.

    Four or so months is about my experience too, and yes, it's odd that it takes that long for changes in play to be reflected in offers, when this is all done by computers.

    Ha ha, I didn't know that Sam's Club offers any vegas discounts. :poke: (kidding).

    Not sure, guess it depends. I played at Sam's town a couple of years ago and the next month I started getting free night offers. Maybe it was just a "teaser" offer since I hardly go to Sam's town and play there but the next 8 months they were sending me free night offers every other month. Guess I haven't played there in awhile because I don't get any Sam's Town offers anymore.

    I don't gamble as much so I hardly receive any free night offers for MSS and the Cal.

    I did notice that they finally displayed nightly rates for January for the downtown Boyd hotels (not sure if they also displayed them for the Orleans and GC and Sam's Town) but overall I found better offers on Booking.com for a stay at MSS in January so I already booked my hotel just in case I do go to the CES next year. Depends if we have to pay to go to the CES, heard that may happen for the 2017 show.

    So 2 weeks ago when I called the MSS reservation number to booked our Thanksgiving week trip, I mentioned about not having my November offers yet. They looked and said yes that I had 3 comped nights available. Of course I booked right away, Nov 22-25. I then called to book the Orleans for the 20th to 22nd and I did not have any offers yet. I booked anyway assuming we will get 2 comped nights and I can rebook. The funny thing was is that I spoke to the same woman, even calling a different number. Next time I call and book Boyd properties, I will just make one call. BTW, I am Just showing November food comps for MSS. But that makes sense because I already booked November.

    Once you book, your offer for room will disappear on BConnected site. But you can change by calling. Got usual 4 nights, food book, and $75 FP. AAAD code. If anyone has food book for August the MSS buffet(except seafood but good for steak and shrimp) is included with no surcharge due to construction at Cal restaurants.

    My October offer shows code AADC.
    It's for 4 nights, meal book, and $75 FP.
    I booked the 4 nights with host last May.

    I had to cancel my late August trip, and that had $100 FP, plus the multiple point promo.
    Bummer!

    I'm bummed my tier seems to have dropped.

    October - 3 nights Sun - Thr - G6OMAAD

    November - 2 nights, Sun - Thr , G6NMAAE

    G = Main Street Station
    6 = year (2016)
    N = November
    M= ?
    A= ?
    A= ?
    E= tier? If so, then I dropped from D to E

    And of course November is when I'm heading out. And of course I'm leaving one day BEFORE the 5X VP starts. Sigh....

    Meanwhile a friend of mine who went out with me last year (Dec) and ran 1/6 the amount through the machines as I did (5K vs 30K over 4 days) gets 3 nights Sun - Thur plus $20 food. He had not got an offer all year and suddenly gets this. WTF?

    This really ticks me off. Anyone know a decent host worth talking to at MSS about this? I'm about ready to pack up and take my business elsewhere downtown.

    Nah...I USED to be, then they went ape-shit on their codes as well as cutting back on their marketing campaign (and I just quit caring about MSS, because it only has beer going for it, imho)
    However, I'm a dolt, and I played like $10k in a day there on this last June trip, and earned Sapphire again...and now I've got a 3 night offer +$20 in food in November (Offer Code: G6NMAAD)
    FWIW, Sam's Town continues to throw 3 nights anytime at me, haha...and I've never really played there with any consistency...
    ALSO, I dropped in for an hour and lost like $400 at Palace Station on my June trip..now they won't leave me alone with 3 night offers and VIP event offers...haha..they may have won my business.

    I've been trying to move up from level E to level D for the last three months. I've gone each month and averaged 5K per day, two days per trip. I recently saw my November offers and I'm still E.

    Anyone have any idea what I would have to bump my daily average up to get to D? 6K? 8K? 10K? What about a meal book, how much do you think I would have to put in for that?

    Before this I averaged about 3K per day and did dumb things like swipe my card to redeem slot points without playing. I'm Sapphire with 100K tier points, but I suspect I'm still on the bottom tier because of my crappy daily average.

    Am I the only one who is showing nothing for November? I have some random free nights at Sam's Town and that is it. I play at Sam's Town the least.
