    I'll be in Vegas this weekend. I already took an offer from my host from Aria.. Now I know that you're not allowed to ask your host for something then ask another host to comp you with another offer... My question is.. Would I be able to do that if I have separate hosts for different MGM resorts?

    I have never done it, but would think it would be okay if you have a good relationship with both host. Hosts at mgm properties only host at that property. If you book 2 comps at different hotels at mlife you will need adequate play at each hotel to keep your hosts happy. You cannot book 2 corporate offers at the same time.

    They typically will not let you have multiple offers simultaneously at the same group. Are you trying to book a comp trip at a hotel like Bellagio while you are at Aria? If so, that won't fly.

    Pretty sure it shows up in their computers.

    It most definitely shows up in the computer. You can ask the second host if he/she can work around it. Worst answer will be no. Your best bet is to double book a CET prop, W/E, V/P, or Cosmo.

    They are pretty sticky with the 72 hours between offers with MLife. You can probably get free rooms back to back, offers they treat differently; although, it never hurts to ask, worst case scenario the answer will be "no".

    Thanks for all the advice. My host at aria comped my entire trip +lakers tix.. I wanted to see if I could book back to back and take up on an offer with a host from Mandalay Bay. I'm going to just play it safe and stick with just Aria. Thanks again. :)

    When I come to vegas for my usually two weeks trips, I never had an issue booking the first week at MB and second week at Aria. Always comped with food credits at both hotels and back-to-back, all booked through my hosts.

    Coming from Germany, on a weekend trip I had to spent more time in a plane as being in Vegas! :faint:
    On two times per year, my wallet had 6 months year to grow again. :headbang:

    Sure you can book back to back with a sister property.

    Call the other host; you're not risking anything.

    What you can't do is get simultaneous comps from hosts at sister properties.

    I have done this specifically at Mandalay and at NYNY when I had freeplay at both. It was done back to back, but I have a good relationship with my host at NYNY so I think she went around the rules. I made the mistake of booking the NYNY offer first and my host and Mandalay said he couldn't do it, so I cancelled NYNY, booked Mandalay and then re-booked the NYNY offer through the host I have a good relationship with.

    Bottom line: if your host says it can't be done they are lying. They can go around just about any rule on their own. Just make sure you have a good relationship with them and put in proper play.

    It's OK to ask hosts to make arrangements for you for back to back stays. What they might not be able to do is attach specific terms of two different offers to both stays.

    So if you have an offer from MLife for Property A with offer code AAAA2 for FreePlay and Resort Credit, and one from Property B offer code BBBB2 for the same thing, hosts A and B will both book you, but you might only be able to get the FreePlay, etc on one offer or the other, but not both. Or they'll say that, but if you're a big enough player, they'll find a way to do it.

    And you probably don't want to play one MGM host off the other for times when you're only staying at one property. They won't like that at all. Pitting hosts from different chains against each other is OK though, depending on how you finesse it.

    Just something to keep in mind, these also don't necessarily have to be corporate offers. Hosts at MGM properties are notorious for using their discretion when it comes to giving out Free Play/Slot Play to customers based on a last trip played. Or also sometimes matching offers from competing properties.
