I know it is not a good idea to chase comps, but......I just checked my account and am VERY close to Platinum. I did not plan to travel to Vegas prior to October, but could if it is worth my moving to next tier level. Frankly, as a gold member who has been staying at Bellagio in recent years, I get very little value except for a shorter line at Bellagio café. Yes, a couple of nights comped and usually less than $150 in free play and food and beverage. In May, I asked at check in for a high room and was offered a fountain view for an additional $50 a night! I declined, but just an example as to how Gold seems to have little value. So, do slot players at Platinum level receive better offers? Truthfully, all I am interested in are suite offers and higher food and beverage or free play offers .I don't need a host, pool cabanas, clubs etc. As a side note, would be much easier to go to Detroit for a night, but earning of tier credits is greatly reduced for each dollar spent.....So, assuming I get a Vegas comp room and decent air fare, is Platinum worth it?
