    Does anyone notice they are asking you to stay more days than they use to to get a offer for free pay or other credit? All of my offers are for 4 and 5 days from several different casino's. I don't want to stay that long. My old offers were 2 to 3 days. That's all I want.

    Is it CET? I see your countdown is for Harrah's. The Cosmo offers I've gotten are always the 2 day variety.

    You are getting better offers, that's all. You sure they require you to stay 4 or 5 days? If it's MGM or CET, I doubt it.

    I just looked at a random "Stay and you also get" $100 Freeplay and $100 Resort Credit at Bally's and the booking engine would have let me book 1 night. Same with 3 free night offers.at Caesars. It would have let me book a single night.

    I know that CET has offers with 2 night minimums, but I've never heard anyplace that makes you stay 3 or more.

    If there is a minimum stay requirement it should say so specifically in the terms of the offer, otherwise you should usually read it like a "maximum of __ nights comped up front"

    Most of my offers from MLife right now will say something like "Three nights complimentary stay in a deluxe room with $250 in FREEPlay, 2 for 1 show tickets and $75 in resort credit" but I can stay just 1 night, very rare do I see them attach a condition to the offer like "based on minimum 2 night stay" or something like that.

    Yes I see the same thing on my V/P offers where it'll be for three nights but if I stayed one or two it would reduce the amount of free play.

    Sometimes they offer this because they have the rooms anyways and hope you will stay and play longer.

    Do you REALLY have to stay that long? Nope.

    You can ask in advance if you can shorten your stay. If they say your offer will no longer be valid, then do not change it.

    Instead, you just leave a Do Not Disturb sign on the door and leave a day or two early. Folks do that often. Heck, some people even take an offer but stay at a different hotel anyways.
