    Are these worth it, or just sales gimmicks?

    Or are these what are referred to as offers?

    If not, what is an offer?

    Most of the "special reduced rates" stuff I get are for less-popular weekday nights in the heat of summer.

    Actually, those reduced rate offers sometimes cover more days than just "weak" ones. They are mass mailed with hopes of getting folks in and in most cases would not be considered an offer. Most offers give a free night, or very DEEP discounted room. Offers may also include food or shows, all depending on your play history. Offers are sent to people for one reason, and one reason only. The casino is planning or expecting that you will drop enough money to cover the free stuff, and then some more so they can make a profit.

    Funny thing about this topic --
    I just got one of these "special offers" of reduced rates - just for me !...I'm SO special !
    This Vegas hotel - I haven't stayed at, since a week after 9/11.
    I looked all over the damn website for a RATE CALENDAR........nope !
    I think they want me to phone ?....why ?.......to wait on the line for a human ?
    just post the damn Rate Calendar !

    It seems as if most places have multiple "deals" going on, many of which overlap. You just have to do your due diligence. Usually the best rate I can get is by logging into my account, looking at the rates and then applying any discount/offer codes I can find. I do this initially and book something and then do it periodically once or twice a week until I leave in case the rates have gone down or the rates have gone done at another property.

    I get bombarded with those emails from CET. One day, if I am desperate enough, I will take them up on it.

    The only CET property I would like to stay at these days would be CP, but the "special rates" ain't so special. The Rio, Ballys and Harrahs all show comped. Like I said, if I am desperate enough.

    I received one last week from Aria for two free nights Sun-Thur plus $75 dollars of free play. First time I have ever been offered a comped room there. Of course I will be taking them up on the offer in September.

    I get better offers when I log in than what I see in the emails. So always check that too. That said, I get free play offers nearly every week for AC and literally nothing for Vegas....just comp rooms. And my BR is 5x more a day than what I spend in Atlantic City.

    Funny that you say that, I would never stay at Ceasar's unless its a Nobu room and even then I just don't like their casino. Feels drab. On the other hand, Paris, Linq, Cromwell, pH, and Flamingo can take my money all day long. Different strokes :)

    Wait. People actually click on emails for rooms that aren't free. I just hit delete!

    I don't bank on it but I never feel like those reduced rate emails are really offering "me" a good rate. In fact a lot are spam promoting nationwide deals anyone who goes to their website can get.

    If you don't get comped rooms, many of those email offers are at very good rates. If you are on FB Breeze, like the pages of some of the hotels where you prefer to stay as I often see very good deals posted on FB. Palms recently had a $39/night in the newly remodeled rooms recently that included a daily buffet and Ghostbar passes.

    I just got an email from Palms for May and June "with rates starting at $25". When I looked at the calendar they sent along with the email, there was only one day at $25 and a couple at $30. Remember that the resort fee is now up to $30. Not slamming the Palms, I like the Palms. Just sayin'...

    I don't pay a resort fee at Palms as my stay is comped.

    For those who aren't comped in Vegas; if you get a newly remodelled room in a hotel with good dining options for $30 + $30 resort fee; I think it is a hell of a deal. You can't stay in a roadside motel for that anywhere else.

    I wish I could get a comp at Palms Breanna! Like I said, I do like the Palms. We have stayed and played there and enjoyed it. I do get your point about the cost though. I think the last time we stayed there, that was about what we paid for our room. Hope I didnt offend, was not my intention.
