    Just curious. Me and my BF both used our summer Bellagio offers in June. We each had a suite offer - which they combined into one shared Bellagio suite. So I earned 135,000 tier credits and he earned 69,500 or something like that.

    So we both get our winter offers.

    Mine:

    $300 in free play
    Comp suite
    Complementary Food & Beverage
    Limo
    VIP Check In

    His:

    $400 in free play
    Comp suite
    $300 food and bev
    Invited Guest Check In

    Any clue why he would get more free play than me. Seems kind of strange that I earned almost twice the tier credits, but now get less free play?

    I guess that's my question. How do they decide one person's comp is more food, and one person's comp is more free play. For me, not being a foodie, having a $1,050 food comp is just a waste. I've used similar offers twice now - probably never spent more than $400 in food on each trip, if that. Maybe that's why they keep giving it to me :)

    I'm not complaining - just really curious.

    I agree probably the limo and unlimited food and bev. Guess they want you to eat more lol.

    Its too bad they dont give a choice.

    Either way enjoy I would be thrilled with all of that.

    I never understood this "food and beverage" comp. it can't just be unlimited. Where do they draw the line?

    I get trip offers that say 300FB, 500FB etc. but my host says my account is noted as 250 per day regardless of offers. I want unlimited!
    I would eat filet topped with lobster for breakfast and wash it down with opus.

    Even though my offer says Comp food and beverage, it is limited to $350 a day, or $1,050.

    Aria in 2 days for you! Have a great trip.
