Howdy, all! It's been awhile since I've posted, didn't realize it had been so long! Anyhoo, yesterday in the mail, I got an offer from the Venetian/Palazzo. It said they "missed" me and had an "incredible" offer for me. The offer was for 3 free nights and $60 free or match play. It's a pretty good offer. HOWEVER, I didn't appreciate the way they kicked me to the curb a couple of years ago when Sheldon Adelson said he didn't want play from people like me and would only go after whales. As you may recall, casino revenue went down 47% after they made that move and they have apparently been trying to make amends. I remember when that comp policy went into effect and hearing stories about folks' having comped rooms yanked from under them days before their trip. One of my friends refuses to take them up on any comps and I have to say, I feel the same way. The same week Adelson announced their whales-only comp policy, Wynncore sent me an email offering me 2 nights @ $129/night with the 3rd night free + $200 free play. Coincidence? Who knows, but guess who got my business on my next trip? First half of the trip at the El Cortez, the second half in a king suite at the Encore. I thoroughly enjoyed a winning stay at both hotels!
