    I’m heading back to Main Street Station in March and for the first time have free meals included with my 4-night offer (along with $75 free slot play, sweet). I’m trying to determine exactly how these meals work, as I’ve found lots of old and conflicting information on the subject (silver cards, gold cards, meal coupons, etc.) Some options seem to apply to comped players while others are included in Hawaii vacation packages (I am the former, not so lucky as to live in Hawaii). I’d be overjoyed if my deal covers buffets and meals at 777 – unlimited beers would be even better! If anyone has any recent experience with this comp, I would love to hear the details about what restaurants/meals/options are included, and how it’s handled with the cashier. Also any recommendation for the best choices would be great as I’m not much of a foodie – I usually survive on 777’s fish and chips.

    If it helps any, the booking code is G0314MC, and I just made it into Sapphire status on my last 3-day trip in September (starting from zero).

    Each month, the downtown casinos sends out their offers (also on the B-connected site). Your offer code is broken down as follows. The first digit “G” indicates it came from MSS. Digits 2-5 indicates the month and year. The 6th “M” indicates a monthly offer and the last digit “C” is the level. The “C” level is 4 nites w/meals plus 75 dollars in free play.

    The meal offer is the same Aloha coupon book that is given to those who fly with Vacations Hawaii. There are Silver or Gold players who do fly with them so they get the appropriate card on arrival instead of the coupon book.

    As for the Silver/Gold card, that is controlled by a host. You may possibly qualify for a Silver card. When making your reservation, it would not hurt to speak to the host on duty for reservations and ask if you qualify for a Silver Card. This is the card needed to eat free at the restaurants and the Fremont/MSS buffets.

    Definitely call and talk to a host. I get the $75 freeplay offer and am at the silver card level. Your worst case scenario is the coupon book which cover limited items at 777 and the other coffee shops at the Cal and Fremont. If you use the coupons for buffets, there is a small charge to do so. I remember it as only about $2 per meal but it has been a while. The silver card would cover all food and drinks at the coffee shops and lets you into the buffets with no extra charge. Also, you can walk up to any bar and use the silver card if you aren't playing.

    Another nice benefit of silver is that you can use the emerald line at the buffets without having that tier card.

    Accurate analysis of the mailer.:thumbsup:
    Just a fyi to the OP. The Silver is no good at Redwood or Second St Grill, but if they do give you a Silver, I'm sure the host could arrange a full or partial comp at either with decent play.

    The free meals in the mailers refer to a coupon book where you can get some items for free. These items are marked on the menu. It is not unlimited food or beer.

    However, as suggested check with a host to see if you qualify for a Silver card. These ARE unlimited!

    Thanks VMB friends for your excellent advice. I called the BConnected number on my mailer and was connected with VIP Services. They looked up my reservation and the kind lady said they would give me a gold card when I checked in. My initial reaction was to ask “Are you sure, I’m just a minnow” but then thought better of it. Of course you can never be sure of anything until it actually happens, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed. The Redwood and Pasta Pirate menus have some pretty appealing options, but I’ll probably end up eating 777 fish and chips anyway, being such a creature of habit. Cheers and good luck.

    Can you speak about your play habits at MSS?
    EDIT: I see you said you put through $25k over the course of a 3-day trip...so you averaged $8500 per day, that's pretty much in line with what others have said about playing requirements for Gold/Silver cards.
    Thanks!

    Sure. Current card score of about 45,000 from two 3-day trips last year. Roughly 75% slots and 25% craps. I actually play about 40% of the time at MSS, 40% at the Cal, and 20% at Fremont, but I know everything is connected.
