    • VIP airport transportation.
    • VIP check-in.
    • VIP valet.
    • Turndown service.
    • $250 annual resort credit.

    How to Earn:
    $1 of spend = 5 points
    $20 wagered on table games = 1 point
    $1.50 wagered on reel slots = 1 point
    $7.50 wagered on video poker = 1 point

    Link to the Identity website

    Please let me know if I have missed anything. The most notable recent change (after the addition of Sterling) is that all benefits related to "Rose. Rabbit. Lie." are now gone.

    Has anyone ever gotten the Identity site to work? Have any Gold members gotten priority access to the Wicked Spoon? Last I saw it was only for Platinum members. Anyone ever use the VIP valet?

    I last visited in late May and can give some feedback.

    I was Gold coming into the trip. The 3x multiplier was not immediately active.Luckily I noticed it after the first few spins at a slot. A visit to the Identity Desk fixed this. When you put your card in you will see a message telling you that your points are being multiplied by 3X.

    Resort fee was waived as expected. For Wicked Spoon I went to the Identity Desk to get the 2 for 1 voucher and had no problem skipping the line. And one of the nights were one of the Gold tier benefit nights which was used with no problem. Late check out was extended until noon but I don't know if that had to do with tier or just luck. I didn't watch an in-room movie so no comment there.

    Also if you're confused as to your exact status, how many points, how much until next tier, how long do I have to maintin my tier...email Identity and ask for an "Identity Tier Calculation" report. In short, progress to the next tier is based on a moving 365 days. Maintaining a tier is based on an anniversary date.

    Stayed at Cosmo for my first Vegas trip last November. Spread my play over every casino on the strip haha. Sterling Status though so based on points looks like I ran $7500 coin in at Cosmo. Waiting for my offer to cover November so I can book to go back and play a bit smarter.

    Yeah, that's one of the things that never made sense to me. Spending money directly yields that greatest amount of points, it's almost as if they want you to spend rather than gamble.

    Points expire a year after they are earned.

    It depends. It's different for everyone. In my first post I noted that progress to your next tier is based on a rolling 365 days. Maintaining your tier is based on an anniversary of when you gained a tier.

    May suck for big gamblers, but for people who enjoy the hotel and dont gamble a lot - enough hotel stay, eating, boozing, cabana action, and light gambling throughout the year is enough to get upwards of Gold or Sterling, Gold giving you 4 free nights with those companion nights and no resort fee, plus Sterling still gives a free night. Those are perks that MLife or Total Rewards will not give to someone who doesn't gamble much. Getting use a free night for a $600 Saturday just for spending $1,000 in hotel expenses on a previous trip? I'll take it.

    "Those are perks that MLife or Total Rewards will not give to someone who doesn't gamble much."...then Cosmo should close their casino and build more bars and restaurants!

    OR? they could decide that Vegas is about gambling, there's already 2 posh hotels near city center w/o casinos:grrr: :cuss:

    based on their 20K pt system for Gold, you'd need 400K in table "coin in" to reach gold, I usually stay at MGM props so I wouldn't earn more than the 1800 I currently have with Identity, which means I've given them $36K in action, thanks for nothing that signing up and never play would get me!

    oh wait I'm entitled to a whopping $18 in comps for that play, LOL

    so if I stay and never play I get comps, if I stay elsewhere and give you action? I get the same as never having played
    it's like they don't want you to gamble there, just eat, drink and sleep

    spending at Mlife, giving you 25 points per will make you pearl or gold or plat faster. But there is no value in going up the tiers at Mlife. It does not give you free rooms. Just more discounts.

    Using EC to reduce your bill at the end of the trip easy at Mlife, but its earned just as slow as Cosmo in my opinion. Its almost impossible to get into the discretionary Comp level at Aria/Bellagio with out a host. (im not sure about their other properties)

    either way, play where you like, theres tons of options. Just if you spend money at Cosmo, you can still earn "free" rooms via their tiers. At Mlife you cannot.


    seems more beneficial for slot players.
    $1.5 dollars = 1 pt. so that's 2700 coin in? for 1800 pts. to reach gold is 13,333 coin in
    as for table games, it just depends on how many hands per our they rate their games. 20 dollar bet =1 point. playing black jack at 60 hands/hr average bet of $20, (basically 60 points an hour) will take 30 hrs. that's a lot of hours, so it seems like cosmo points are really geared to slot players.

    Most programs cater to slot players anyway, and from the sounds of it - a bit of action in the reels at Cosmo seems to get some people decent offers, plus you get to stack any corporate/promo offer on to your tier level included comps. The same play and spend at Flamingo might get you a few non prime comp nights at the low level CET props on the rate calendar right? Joy!

    When did you receive the offer before that one? I only got this offer a few weeks ago. I'm an international player if that makes any difference.

    Hope it comes soon so I can book!

    Thanks for that, will get in touch now.

    Quick question - My last stay was November 9th-16th 2013. I didn't use any of my tier credits for freeplay or to knock down my bill.

    I was also looking at doing 9th-16th this year again, but my points will be expiring as quick as I will be earning them, right?

    For this reason is it worth a shuffle to the week before, 2nd-9th November so I have a chance at hitting Gold on this trip? (Second trip) Makes sense...right?

    I would if I were you. Although I don't chase comps, I totally direct my play for maximum benefit. If you already have 7500 points it would be a shame to lose them. Immediate benefits of earning Gold at Cosmo would make it worth your while if you can swing it!
