    Hiya,

    It's always been my understanding that RFB or RFL at an MLife property is limited to the restaurants at the property where you are staying. Is that still the case? I seem to recall hearing that a host must "approve" applying the RFB/RFL comp to charges incurred at a sister property. Anyone have experience with this? I know I can ask my host about this when I visit soon but thought I'd get some feedback here first.

    Thanks, and Happy Holidays!!!

    I stayed at Mandalay with a $125 F/B offer in September and went to Carnegie's in Mirage and that counted.

    Having a resort credit really isn't the same as what the OP is asking. My experience has been its hit or miss when you leave property when you're coded as RFB. My best guess is that if you're off property, it depends on where you go. An example is we went to Deuce lounge but were staying at the B. At checkout the charges at Deuce showed up. A few nights later, we had Fix, but it never showed up. Both are ran by the light group, but Fix was where we were coded for RFB. However, we also had lunch at the Grand Wok at MGM and it never showed up as a charge. Very confusing!

    I have never had that problem and, in fact, do it all the time (my recent distaste for Bellagio doesn't stop me form eating at Noodles :thumbsup:). In fact, I never knew it was an issue. Maybe my hosts are just on top of it and that's why I never noticed. But at the least it tells me that if you ask your host to take care of it, they should be able to

    Hell yeah! Noodles...one of my favorite simple eats, and my favorite noodle soup spot on the strip! I have not been there since January...must go back! Also, not sure if they still have it, but their Roti is YUMMMMMY!

    I also have never had a problem applying RC towards restaurants at other mlife props.

    One can apply RC no matter where you are staying.

    Resort credit, Food Credit, RFL and RFB are animals of many different colors. And the rules change daily for that stuff. We have an upcoming trip with $100 at MB food credit. I never trust any of their systems or even what I am told. We will make sure we spend $100 per day at MB, charged to room. I know we will still eat elsewhere, but $100 at MB should not be a problem. The term RFL and RFB was pretty wide open a few years back. Nowadays it usually have a dollar limit, but many hosts or clerks will not bother to point that out to you.

    you haven't had a problem b/c of your level of play and your hosts taking care of it. the answer is that you need to use it on property, otherwise you will likely get stuck with the charge unless your play warrants your host removing it manually.

    Which is why the answer is different for different people. All tied back to level of play, and a little bit of host discretion. Level of play is the kicker though. Remember, some people can not get a buffet at the "home" casino comped after a three day trip. Others can get $500 bottle service comped nightly, and big time diners at OTHER mlife resorts covered.

    Well, thanks to all for the responses. What this tells me is that, like most things in life, "it depends". It's helpful to know that hosts have the discretion to allow for this. Sometimes I feel like my host prefers I use my EC's for things like this even though I always have a full ride at my home property. I seldom cut into my EC's and really should whittle it down some but given my level of play and frequency of visits, I would hope to be afforded the flexibility to charge food at other MLife properties against my food comp for the trip. I'll find out in a couple of weeks!
