    I am in discussions with a Casino Host about a comp visit. I am mLife Platinum. I told the host (well, Telemarketing Manager) at Luxor that I had already received the corporate Platinum offers from MGM Grand and Mirage and what could she do. The week that we are talking about is the President's holiday week.

    She came back with an offer that was roughly equal to the MGM Grand

    3 Complimentary Nights with resort fees waived
    $50 in M life Resort Credit, and $100 in FREEPLAY®.

    at MGM I get 3 free nights with resort fees waived
    $100 resort credit and no FP.

    Does this sound about right? I told here that I would let her know by EOY because I was coming down for NYE.

    Should I have been up front about what MGM was offering me?

    Can I come back with what I can get Downtown?

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    What do you get downtown? I doubt they will match it because strip overheads are much higher and the house edge is lower than downtown.

    If you describe your play you might be able to get more.

    I am "purely" a slot player.

    My downtown comps are at the D, and I get

    4 free nights
    $100 FP
    $100 match play
    $150 FB

    every month.

    What I guess I should have told her is that I put in 3500-4000 mLife points per day during my last trip

    Ok I'm not very familiar with MLife but am I correct that you get 25 tier credits for every dollar?

    Correct, $1 spending = 25 tier points
    1 slot point = 10 tier points
    $1 theoretical loss = 30 tier points

    25 TC for every $1 in purchases.

    $3 = 1 mLIfe point = 10 TC, So about $1000-1200 per day.

    I would guess that information is on her screen.

    Yes, I am curious as to what she sees. I put most of my action in at MGM Grand but put some time in at Aria. I guess she has all she needs to go on for my mLife play.
