Is it rooms? f&b? gaming credits? transportation, etc?
free money is always the best - FP/promo chips/airfare.
Real suite (not a bigger room) is great. Back when they did RFB or RFL at MGM, that was great - empty the mini bar!
I have not kept up but they don't do this anymore?
As a low roller, a standard room is good enough for me. lol
Not being a big enough fish to warrant anything more than free rooms, and a small amount of dining credit and free play, I'd definitely say the rooms are the big lure for us. We won't go out of our way to cash in on free play, but offer us free nights and we will take you up on it every time.
Free money which in my case is freeplay is my favorite as well. It has the most value. f/b credit comes next, that is almost like cash but not as good because it may be more than I need and I can only use it at certain properties. Suites or rooms come last for me, at least as far as my major comps go.
"free money" I somehow got 10 $200 free bets ($2000) from Caesars during Chinese New Year. But I lost 10 tens in a row on blackjack. Felt like shit. Should have went to Bac and put one on bank and another on player. Didn't know about that game until I came here to VMB.
I guess that rooms are better for me and second option food.
Concert, fight and event tickets are my favorite. Since 95% of my visits include business and my association pays for my travel related costs.... rooms, meals, etc. aren't a big deal for me.
Usually, FP offered is too small to make a dent in my bank roll (like 100-200), except for this last trip that was $850 in FP...that was cool
I think my favorite comp is a nice room/suite and getting my food or spa comped. I don't drink, and only occasionally go do the big expensive meal, so usually I'll go to like PF Changs or a couple buffets. My host usually removes all that at the end.
My next trip in a couple weeks, I have $400 in dining credit, and I have no idea what I am going to do with it yet
As long as they comp my room - im happy. Food and beverage is nice as well but ill take the room first.
Rooms are my favorite comp. I refuse to pay for a room - period.
We like having free rooms, if we don't have enough offers to cover the whole trip, our Host hooks us up.
I only stay in comped rooms. Will be at Rio, Caesars, and Bally's this year. Free rooms are my friend for life.
#1 - rooms (this is #1 by far)
#2 - free play
#3 - food & bev
#4 - tickets (this would higher, if I got tix to events I really wanted to see)
#5 - gifts (I don't use 90% of the gifts, but still pick them up when I am there)
#6 - free tourneys like blackjack, slots and bingo (never won any of these, except for a bingo once that was split 5 ways)
Room 1st then F&B then FP after that I would say show tickets or spa services or VIP to a club.
I would say-
If I'm there with someone else, a better grade of room; I'm not picky, by myself, but I don't mind showing off to those outside the know.
By myself, a defined F&B (maybe because I don't get full RFB), so many $ to a certain restaurant, it catches my imagination after I've perused the menu.
Maybe event tickets. Not much interests me, but MGM wanted to give me Jimmy Buffett tix last year, and I was chomping at the bit, but for whatever reason the airfare that weekend would have made it a better deal to fly anywhere later in the tour, to see him somewhere else.
Upgraded room. Not the base room crap.
If Free Play is also involved it just sweetens the deal.
free rooms when ever i want including newyears
Free rooms...better if a suite...limo to and from airport is nice...FP and resort credit is like free money, so hell yeah that's great too...Not into the concerts or shows or tournaments..
