I got a decent offer from the Grand

    Good in April; 2 nights comped, $75 in FP, $25 in food and a free gift.
    Decided to double book and take a WAX ride from the Suncoast.

    Yes, I can be a coupon whore with the best of them!:evillaugh

    I have probably run a total of $15 through their VP machines, in 3 double bookings, but they keep sending offers. I keep double booking just to collect the free play and the $25 in food, we'll give the new Pizza Rock a try.
    EDIT: No resort fee on the room if comped.

    I got a very similar offer, but it is for table play.

    I thought I read it through, but do you have to stay there to get the free play?

    The ones I get from The D and Golden Gate do not require a stay to use the free play.

    You have to check in, but we never stay. My offer is specifically "$75 free slot play"

    They wouldn't book only one night on this offer, so I had to book two.

    Doesn't matter, we'll go to the room on Sunday, mess it up a little so maybe it looks like somebody took a nap. We leave, they make up the room Monday and then Tuesday, the maid gets one clean room she doesn't have to do anything to.

    You're automatically checked out, so no worries about that. If we were staying at MSS, I would probably walk over to get a free morning coffee at DTG, then use the video checkout in the room. But, we're at Suncoast this trip.

    BTW, last trip I found out at 4Q, you don't have to check in either. The FP is pre-loaded on the card for that month.

    We stayed at the Fremont in March but spent some time at the Grand, each of us earning 1k points per visit. Just wondering when we might expect to receive offers, if any. I really liked the laid back non-party atmosphere.

    The very first time we went in was just after they opened. We just wanted to see the place and it is nice. We got player's card and our $3 in freeplay. We each ran $20 through the machine and I actually won $50 and cashed out. The mailers started coming about a month later, but only to me, my wife still is not getting any offers.

    I have been receiving a monthly mailer for 2 nights. In Feb, we double booked, played zero, but I still got this offer. Who knows what algorithm is being used??

    As Buddha said two, three or rarely four hotels at the same time. We only stay in one place, but some of the downtown hotels require you to be a guest to collect the free play, or participate in a tournament etc.

    I also double book and my brother sometimes uses my free room. He doesn't get as many offers as I do.

    On our Dec trip, we stayed at Main Street Station. I was also checked in at the Grand, Four Queens & Golden Gate. I collected free play at all four and played in one slot tournament.

    It is part of the beauty of downtown, every hotel/casino is so close.
