We like to plan trips well in advanced and want to plan a 2nd trip a few months from now. Dealt with a host only on our last 2 trips. Still new at working with a host and have questions on the protocol in different scenarios. 1 - It is now June and we may shoot for Sept/Oct. We usually stay at NYNY and currently don't have any Free offers. (Usually get 3 Free nights, $100 Free Play and discounted meals). We have interacted with 2 different hosts there. Since we don't have any offers, is it ok to e-mail a host to see what they can do for you and if you don't like their offer simply decline or would that be considered rude? 2 - Is it too early to contact a host and make plans that far in advance? We have made reservations 8 months out but usually not when dealing with a host. 3 - We usually stay at MGM properties but gave some play to PH and wouldn't mind staying there once to give them a try. Can we call a host at a new property to see what they would do for us even though we only have limited play there? (We gamble 90% at the casino where we are staying.) Can we tell them what we currently get at NYNY (Usually get 3 Free nights, $100 Free Play and discounted meals and a limo ride from the airport) and see if they match it? And is it too early to try this? 4 - I have no problems cancelling reservations, but lets say a host is involved. The host from Casino A makes arrangements for you. Then you get an offer from Casino B and want to take that offer. Will that put you in poor standing with the host from Casino A if you opt to cancel and go with another casino?
