    I am coming into Vegas for Labor ady weekend. We booked a comp room at Bally's. I received an offer in the mail the other day for Imperial Palace for September that stated $300.00 free play and 2 night stay.
    I already am staying at Bally's which is a sister compnay. Will they still let me use the $300.00 even though i am not staying with them. It does not stipulate that on the offer. Let me know if anyone else has received an offer like this and is staying at a sister property. Thanks

    I predict the free-play only comes if you stay at Imperial Palace. It's almost certainly a package deal. I've gotten the same kind of thing offering free show tickets, but I couldn't get them unless I stayed at the property offering it.

    BTW, I'd stay at Bally's given the choice, but IP isn't horrible; you might switch hotels to get the $300FP.

    We have stayed at Imperial Palace before, it is no Palace. We are going with other people and they picked the hotel. I was going to call them to see what they say.

    You need to book the offer to get the freeplay. And CET's reservation system won't let you book two vegas comps on the same dates.

    Now if your current comp room was a non-CET one, you could double book the IP offer, check into the room and get your freeplay and just never use the extra room.

    Yep. You gotta book at the property to get the freeplay and the freeplay will only be usable at the specific property.

    I would suggest that you call the casino marketing department at Ballys. Although the free play offers are normally specific to individual properties, my Caesars casino host once shifted a similar reel rewards promo from Ballys to Caesars because that's where I wanted to stay. so it is possible with certain types of offers. can't hurt to ask.

    Agree with the past notes. Especially the part that says you MUST BOOK IN ADVANCE. You can not just show up. Call Ballys though.

    FP Offers

    My CET FP script has been good at any CET property and has allowed about 4 weeks of validity before expiration. :licklips: I've used the script issued by CP and the Flamingo at CP, PH and the Flamingo.

    Usually you still have to advance book to get the script. If you get a freeplay coupon/script in the mail, that is a totally different animal. And offer means you have to book it, then show up to claim it.
