    I'm curious to know what offers people are getting from the Palms and how frequently they send them. Can anyone help?

    My last three days play there have been:

    Sept 2 $37k coin in
    Sept 27 $33k coin in
    Sept 28 $46k coin in

    Can anyone tell me what I might expect offer wise?

    TIA

    im local so my offers are differnt from non locals

    they have local offfers and non local at the palms it seperated there.


    but before being local i would get rooms and show tickets mailed invites all the time but i was a table player.

    ps they justed a updated rewards progranm and a new boss. so it could take a while till things get going again.


    if you want feee rooms just call casinio service and ask for a host to review your play and take care of it there pretty good about it there

    Thanks for that info.

    I'm mainly a VP player, but I try to put a little slot play in there to make me look more valuable to the casino.

    I'm hoping for offers with free play and food credit in addition to free room nights, but have no idea what I can expect. I prefer upfront offers rather than dealing with a host at the end of the trip and HOPING they comp everything off. Hate the feeling of being at the mercy of the host/casino.

    just so you know you will need a host as only they can remove the resort fee and they do it at the end,you can have any host do it so you dont need to be asigned one.

    ps they also like you to charge stuff to the room and wipe it off after they see your play.


    palms belive it or not they consider them self a locals casino.


    also you might have a host and not know it.i was asigned one and only found out about here after a booked one of there offers they said you have a host and she can help



    what card status are you

    I've been averaging about 100k in video poker play the last several trips. Been getting 3 comp nights and usually about $200 in free play. Resort fee is comped if you are there on an offer. Also get airport pickup if I want it. Usually get any food charges comped at the end too if I don't have upfront food comp.

    I'm thinking Palms has cut back or eliminated a lot of the tournaments or other special offers. Used to get quite a few of those but now it's just been room and free play. I'm okay with that as I've done pretty well there the last several years.

    paperposter -- I'm currently MVP, but don't think I'll get back there in the 90 day period to get to Hall of Famer, and honestly, I don't see any reason to get to that level (it doesn't appear to give you much more).

    cf84 -- $100k coin in over 3 days? It doesn't seem like $200 free play is much for that kind of play. Do they make you split it up between more than one day? I noticed on my husband's offer they said he would have to take half one day and half the next.

    There's a VP/BJ tourney Oct 18 - 20 that Wei Mai told me I was invited to, but I haven't received a mailer for it.

    Are you saying that most of your offers do NOT come with any food credit?

    Thank you both for the info.

    Yeah, mostly 5 and 10 play video poker and I spend most of my time playing so it adds up quick. The weekend offers may come with a little bit of food up front, maybe $25, and the mid week offers usually have $75. That usually isn't a concern as I said because they'll usually comp whatever food I charge to the room. The mid week free play may be $50 higher too but I almost always do weekends as I'm one of the poor saps that still has to work.

    The trade off on the lower free play offers for that much coin-in is that they have a great selection of high paying games. Sure, that would probably get you way more on the Strip but then you'd be playing games 2% less in many cases and would spend way more than the difference.

    I had booked an offer last year for a slot tournament but they cancelled it a few day prior to my arrival. I wasn't too happy with that, especially because they only gave us $100 free play to compensate. I'll have to check with a host to see if I'm just not getting the tournament and special offers or if they have cut back. I've had some pretty good luck lately too so maybe that is a factor also.

    I actually made it to Hall of Fame level this year but haven't really seen any increased benefit being a non-local. I thought maybe that would kick in some extra benefits but nothing so far. I'll probably just settle for MVP in the future, which I can easily reach each trip. I certainly won't make a concerted effort to get HOF again without any incentives.

    Thanks for the further info. That's what I thought about HOF tier, so I won't bother with ever trying to reach that level.

    You're right about the lesser free play offers being worth it when the games are so much better than most places. I still need to train my brain about that since I was used to playing at places with crappy pay tables.

    Hope I start receiving some mailers soon! My next two trips are booked at MGM Grand/Tropicana and then Mirage. Not really looking forward to playing at any of those places.
