    Last night was my last night of 13 in Vegas at the Monte Carlo and I had been planning on stopping in to see a host about back end comps. I had generated about 260,000 tier credits with my stay, most from pounding away at the slots. However, after walking all day - I went for one last visit to the Riviera - I fell asleep.

    When I checked out I asked the desk clerk to call a host as I didn't really have time to stop in and get into a conversation. It only took five minutes and he took over $1500 off my bill! I ended up paying only for two room nights and a couple meals. I still have all my express comps.

    You don't get if you don't ask! Glad I did!

    Hope to write a TR when I get a chance. Lots of slot porn!

    We switched from CET to Mlife properties a few years ago. MC IMO gave us the best backend comps. NYNY the worst so far. That's a lot of points! Good for you, hoping to read your report soon.

    At Flamingo I asked the desk for this and they said they would not call until I used all my reward credits.

    That was one of the reasons, there were many others, I gave up on CET in 2012. I would build up significant reward credits, use the video check out, get home and find out they automatically applied the credits to my bill! This happened a couple times at Paris. I called and there was nothing they could do they said. Since I travel on business the reward credits were for me, not the company. At MGM I've not had a problem.

    Count me as a CET hater. I won't play at any of their casinos. I did eat at Harrahs Oyster Bar this trip, usually a fantastic meal but this time so so.

    Ware? Born there! If you can figure out what street used to be called Piggy Lane you'll know the neighborhood.

    CZRs seems very stringent on forcing you to use reward credits first. Usually my meals are taken care of this way.

    The one thing I really did like about my MGM stay last week was they back end comped my room and meals (only about $300 in charges as I had 2 comped nights only with resort fees anyways) but they didn't touch my express comps or free play.

    Good job, especially staying 2 weeks in Vegas, I would be completely dead to the world! My absolute limit, and I mean ABSOLUTE limit is 4 nights, 4.5 days. I just go too wild when I am there, and am awful at pacing myself.
