If you were GoldStrike in Tunica, would you match my Bellagio Offer?

    Title pretty much sums it up. I know that Tunica and Vegas are different beasts altogether, but I was wondering...
    I currently am booked for Bellagio in Feb. I'm thinking of heading to Tunica instead (I know, I know... blasphemy on VMB...but I love me some Memphis BBQ), where I get decent offers, but the Feb offers aren't out yet.

    Do you think GoldStrike would see my Bellagio reservation - see my offer, and at the very least match it?
    I'm going to email a host down in Tunica this exact question - and I know they don't traditionally match offers, but do you think I should wait to hear his initial offer or open up with requesting the offer Bellagio sent?
    - also, I never worked with this host, I went to GS once, and when I checked out asked for a host card. The kind lady in the Host office comp'd all my food purchases (w/out express comps - I know, right...didn't think they did that anymore)

    For info sake, I and wife are strictly slot players on linked account.
    The offer for Bellagio is 3 nts, $200 FP, $250 (total) F&B
    My typical offers for GoldStrike are 3 nts, and $240 FP every 2 weeks, so $480/month

    Thanks in advance,
    If I need to include any other info...let me know...

    Pretty sure GS Tunica does not do matching. The real question is can you get the same offer at Tunica. Right now, really all you are lacking is the $250 in F&B (and ten bucks of FP). FWIW, at my level of play, I get free rooms any time I want in Tunica, $3000 in monthly FP, and $300 F&B per day. Not sure how they calculate the F&B offers, but instead of contacting a host and asking them to match, I would just call a host and ask what they can do for you as a daily resort credit. See what they say. Then you can always pull out the Bellagio offer if needed

    Your room and FP are the same (almost).
    I am thinking if you called a host, you could get $100 a night in F/B. Maybe a bit more.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking....I didn't want to play the Bellagio card unless I had to.
    I'm gonna email this weekend and see what they can do.
    Thanks for your reply

    Hello, Mr Host here, how can I help you?

    Yes, I am Mr Smith, MLife #12345. I hope you can help me, I have a nice offer from Bellagio for NYE, but was considering coming to GS instead, I love Memphis BBQ. Please help me make this decision. Convince me to stay at GS instead of Bellagio.

    Well, what is your Bellagio Offer?

    The offer for Bellagio is 3 nts, $200 FP, $250 (total) F&B

    Well Mr Smith, let's see what I can do....


    at that point, ball is in his court if he wants your play or wants to send your play to Bellagio. I'd think he'll come up with a close or similar deal to get your play in his house and not elsewhere
