    I just received my summer free play offer (July and August). The summer offer is double my May and June offer.
    My play has remained fairly steady this year (over 4 trips).
    So, my offers are back to where they were before they were cut in half.

    I hope everyone is seeing the same.

    Good to hear, I hope CET comes thru & bumps me back up to where I was before the cut backs. I haven't received my July & August offers yet.

    The summer offer was for a select group of people based on a heavy dose of analytics. The way it is structured is a combination of free play in line with current offers, plus a "travel credit" in the form of free play to give it an increase. Given that the biggest complaints seem to stem from reduced free play offers, I would hope those same folks that received this offer redeem it. It is a great way to show the company that players will respond to such offers.

    I would love to take advantage of the offer. Unfortunately, I know that a free play offer can't be stacked with the 7 Star event in August. I am Canadian, so I find to get a decent air fare, I need to book 3-4 months in advance. My issue with most TR offers is that I don't get enough notice. Receiving the July free play offer today, doesn't give me enough lead time for a decent flight.

    Received a summer offer but it still is not up to par with the old offers. I will say,it is alot better than what they offered in Jan/Feb.

    For me, after approx 20 years of loyality with CET and CET dropping my offers of freeplay in less than half it is now a bit to late to try to make a come back with me as their customer. Due to their major comp cut backs I was then in a position to experiment with other properties which was a nice experience. Found out other properties will offer me way higher freeplay (as a slot player this is a major plus for me) and the usual comped suites, limo and f/b. In my experience of trying other companies I found out I like the rooms and casinos way better at non CET properties.

    That being said I'm not completely done with CET, they just won't get the bulk of my bank roll or will I be willing to stay in subpar rooms and play in dirty casinos as easily as I did before their cut backs. They will get drop in play not stay and play time. CET cutbacks turned out to be a beneficial learning experience for me.

    I've got a group going in August. I've booked my 4 nights. Hubbie booked three nights for our kids. Weird thing is I always have 5 free nights so I booked it, I just have to call and add a free play offer. Hubbies offer finally hit last week but my mom has nothing. Historically she gets two nights and now we wait....I swear to god, I check hers several times daily, and nothing past 7/31.

    Hmm..no summer offers for me yet; at least not the monthly ones. Are they still being sent or am I just getting the specific weekend ones?

    I would have if they had seen fit to include me in that offer. I've been booking the loyalty offers that must be booked by the 20th of every other month. That has been including $150 dining credit with the $400 free play, so that's been my best offer since the cuts.

    Pff who needs freeplay when CET is offering Weber BBQ's and Amazon Fire Tablets. I'm just mad my dates only lineup with offers that give freeplay. I'd gladly trade for the BBQ or tablet haha at least I'd be guarenteed to go home with something! (if I didn't find a buyer :evillaugh)

    I'd prefer a visa gift card. I haven't seen an offer for a BBQ or tablet ( that's a Vegas offer??)

    I haven't received any improved offers and my play in April was my biggest (and biggest losing) trip ever. Other than that +1 to everything Casinoqueen said. The fact that my LV CET host is truly bad (just the opposite of my AC host) and hasn't gotten any better only adds to the disappointment. For my upcoming 8-day LV trip I'm staying 4 nights in an Encore Tower Suite, comped, with CET stays for the offers booked on both sides of the Encore stay. CET will get some play but Wynncore will get the bulk of it.

    newmans, please check your offer.

    My offers read as followed:

    BE OUR GUEST & RECEIVE

    Up to three free nights and up to $2,500 in Casino Play OR a Shopping Gift Card.
    You'll get $1,250 in July and $1,250 in August to use on your favorite slots, table games or at The Forum Shops at Caesars.



    I think it reads $2500 total if I go in July & August, $1,250 each trip.

    After being cut my offers went down to $1000 to $1250. (or a free Weber Grill) lol

    But I did receive a call from my host recently and he said he can double my FP offers.

    This seems to be what Hunter is talking about.

    Check with your hosts when booking to see if the additional free play is available to you.
