    Hi Everyone,

    It seems that my comps dried up all of a sudden. Used to have at least 20 in my Mlife account. Now I have 15, but 13 of them are reduced rate crap.

    Had a nice offer that had to be booked by January 31st that I missed my chances on.

    Have any of you had a decrease in Comp offerings?

    Thanks

    I think that my last 2 trips were too close to one another. I went at the end of November and Janaury 1st. I hit platinum after the 2 trips but also gave a little of my bankroll to Cosmo once I hit the 200K points.

    I still took it in the A$$ and did not come home a winner. So, I'm confused why my offers have dried up. I don't even have a corporate offer on my account.

    It seems Josie Cat and I are in the same boat. Either amazing offers or nothing.

    My play has stayed the same if not gone up, but my offers are also not as good as in the past. Last year I would wait until I wanted to book and then look at the offers. Now if I see one that is half way decent I book it just in case nothing else comes alone. The last one I booked in Nov for arrival the end of this month with room/FP/F&B. Since then all the new ones showing up are only for comp Sun - Thurs, small amt of free play and only $50 or none in F&B. That sort of offer is not worth traveling from the East Coast.

    We will see what starts showing up after this next trip.

    My MLife offers are better than ever but my CET offers are awful. The worst part is the CET offers end on 3/31 and they are only for 20% off on rooms. I used to always get good offers from them. We are going in May and are starting to get frustrated with them.

    Yes Ezzy, that is exactly what happend to me. I'm so upset at myself. I had a Penthouse Suite and 1000$ in Resort credit and 500$ in Freeplay at the Mirage.

    However it had to be booked by January 31st for travel through May 31st. I should have did what you did and book it and cancel if need be. Now I'm shit out of luck and can't get this offer because it expired.

    I'm hoping that more offers will come out at the beginning of March. That is what the Mlife properties are telling me.

    We'll just have to wait and see!

    As long as I continue to get free rooms, I'm happy.

    lol Pete. I have the free rooms, but also like the FreePlay and F&B Comps. I try to squeeze them as much as I could because I know that I'm going to give them my bankroll regardless.

    I've only come back a winner once from my 9 Vegas trips. I get greedy and play harder if I'm winning hoping to hit a nice payday.

    I'm getting some better feedback dealing with the hosts directly but prefer it when the ball is my court with an existing offer that they can sweeten up :licklips:

    My Mlife offers sent in the mail were horrible. No free nights just reduced rates was all. I called my host at NYNY and she took care of a suite, UFC tickets and Food and Beverage. I usually go 4 or 5 times and year and I only went once last year so I figured thats why all my mail offers were horrible. Fortunately my host didn't have a problem taking care of us.

    Thanks Ford,

    I've never stayed at NYNY, maybe I'll give them a call and see what they can offer me.

    Enjoy your trip and good luck!!!!

    I started staying there several years ago and they have always treated me well. I'm primarily a 5 and 10 dollar slot
    player and I've never had a problem with them taking care of RFB. I'm pretty low maintainence. I don't ask for much.

    Do not go by the offers in your MLife online account.
    Call a host at any property or even the MLife desk.
    I have not had a comp offer on the website in over a year but I get emails and direct mail invitations on everything else.

    Last year I had only discount offers on their website before my trip to Aria.
    I called the MLife desk and got a suite plus $4oo RC.

    My offers have always been crap. Dropped $5K at Aria in Jan (stayed here as well and did not use any express comps since my company was paying) then another $5K at MGM a week later (only played there. didn't stay at an mlife property).

    Best I could get for my trip in March is reduced rates at Aria. And even the reduced rates are crap, $79 weekday and $149 weekend for 4 nights. I'm gold tier mlife and play primarily BJ and craps. BJ $30 -$200 per hand and I do play for several hours per day. Craps usually $25 on pass, $75 on odds, and buy two numbers @$25 plus $5 on hard ways. That's about $170 on the table.

    I called the desk and "that's the best they can do". I reached out to a host and he said that after my next trip he would credit some stuff back at the end of the trip. :grrr:

    The deals you guys seem to get sound great to me! lol. What am I doing wrong?

    Jackal you will be rated a $75-$85 average.
    No casinos rate odds anymore.
    For that,you will probably get a room comp at mid and lower tier properties.
    For Bellagio,Aria,and even MGM you will probably get a discounted rate.

    You can be rated $170 by placing and buying numbers without a line bet and odds.
    You will give up a few % points in house edge but your comps will increase substantially.
