    Fairly new to the whole comp thing. We have 2 short trips already in to Vegas this year and have now received some comp nights at CET properties. We will be using 3 nights in August. So if we gamble mostly at their properties during the 3 days, upon checkout do we go ask if we have can have anything taken off our bill? We would probably only have drinks/food from the pool charged to our room anyways. The question is, do you have to specifically ask someone to "take some off our bill" or when you check out do they see this on their screen and just take some off? I like the idea comps but I don't want to appear to be grovelling at the counter either. When we use our "comp" nights, will this come off our points? Do we ask if our points will cover some of our F & B bill? Thanks for the help. I love these boards!

    Definately ask for your comp credits be applied to any charges. We seldom charge anything to the room but always have our credits cover anything like the Spa, etc that don't accept TR comps up front.

    It's not grovelling, it's how Vegas works. If you don't ask, most likely nothing will be taken off.

    CET policy is to first apply available total rewards points towards any charges, anything above and beyond that will be up to the host. Most properties have a "host on duty" and you can stop by to see them before checking out or call them from your room.

    Remember, that if you are staying in a "comped" room, there is a dollar amount they assign to that room (depending on property and room type) so you will have to make sure you gamble enough to cover that as well as any additional comps you are going to ask for.

    What you receive will depend on the type of game you play, how much per play you bet, and how long you play for.

    Unless you are earning in excess of 1,000 tier points a day I would not expect to receive much above and beyond the room and total reward points comps.

    ** I missed the point about the "points for the room". The answer is NO, they will not deduct points from your account for the room if they are comped, however, they do take the value of that room into consideration when determining if you are eligible for additional comps.

    Sounds good

    Thanks for the help..I wasn't sure how this worked as we've never done it. But as we are accumulating points I wanted to know how to actually redeem them. Thanks again!

    Redeeming points is very easy.

    At restaurants (withing Caesars group hotels, excluding a few outside places, like Mon Ami Gabi or restaurants in the Forum Shops or Miracle mile), just present your TR card when paying and say you want to use points to pay. If you have enough points, you'll just have to pay the tip, otherwise, they will take off the cost to the nearest dollar and you pay the balance and tip.

    Similarly, you can do the same at hotel gift shops.

    Or, you can apply your reward credits to your room charges when you check out.

    As always, you cannot use reward credits to pay tips.

    So If I spend say 500-600 in CET restaurants on my upcoming trip and charge to my room are they viewed like comps like when playing slots or carni games, I would think they would take this into account allong with the room fees I mean your still spending money in the casino/Hotel isnt that what they want ?
