    So I get offers pretty much weekly from Golden Nugget. Most of them are 3 nights comped with a freeplay of anywhere from $300-$1000 and some slot tournament or drawing or something. I usually spend 1-2 days downtown and I give GN a pretty good amount of play by their standards ($100.00 a hand for 4-6 hours at least BJ and Craps).

    I can't claim to be that loyal. I've only stayed there twice in my life.

    So I wanted to stay there for one night at the end of my trip, a Thursday night. I had these offers for 3 nights and freeplay the weekend before and the weekend after. I really thought one comped night would not be a big deal but the VIP rep told me that my play wasn't enough for the comped room and I'd have to be referred to the host desk. She transferred me and it just rang and rang.

    Does this add up to you? Now I'm wondering whether their thinking is comping me for just one night isn't in their best interest and they would rather give the room to someone who will commit for the full weekend.

    Appreciate any input.

    A lot of comp offers are like this. Since one night doesn't really force you to commit to more than sleeping at a property - you can easily play somewhere else all day before you check in, then sleep, check out and play somewhere else, it doesn't make a lot of sense to the casino to comp you just one night. They want you to commit to as much time as possible, believing if you are living at their casino you'll be spending your money there. Many of the offers I have seen are two night minimum, and I've gotten some at three and four night minimum stays.

    With the amount of gaming it sounds like you are doing you might just chance it and make the one night booking, and hope that they will comp you after the fact when you request that they review your play at the end of your stay. Worst case scenario, the GN is a pretty good value most of the time, even if you pay full price.
