I've been going to Vegas for years but never really got into to player clubs/comps/etc game. My priorities in Vegas were never gambling. I'm still younger so my priorities are food, clubs and to relax at the pool or wander around. But, a friend of mine told me that you can get status at some places not just for gambling. So I've started to look around at the different options and learn more about them. I'm from LA so I would say I make 4-6 trips a year, mostly weekend trips 2 days mostly. Some 3-4 day trips as well though. What I'm most interested in: comped rooms for a weekend or better deals. Being able to use invited guest check in. So tired of driving 5+ hours then standing in line another 20-40 mins. Late check out would also be a really nice addition for me. Comps for food won't be bad either. Any help with clubs (mostly marquee/tao/wynn, though I mostly have those covered from going for a few years but always nice for more options). (TAO Beach - Line pass and complimentary entry for member and guest “don’t know how useful that is with the * next to it. ) Lounge access in some of the hotels that have it for free snack/drinks, would be nice too but not a big deal. So I see Mlife/TR/Grazie, as the big ones. Mlife seems to be my best options I think. When looking closer I can try and spend 3k on room/dining/etc at Mlife and hit gold and get invited guest, late check out. Now with all that said kind of a second part to this: I don't mind gambling just hasn't been my priority. How much do I need to gamble to get comped rooms on weekends? $300? $500? I know there's no fixed number but what range starts to bring out comps? I get that theoretical loss plays into it and all but what am I looking at? If say my normal vegas weekend I'd spend 200-500ish for the room I would be more then happy to put that towards gambling instead if I recieved a comped room in the future or that stay along with the maybe hundred or two I don't mind already gambling. Or even more if they will comp food I could put food money towards gambling too. Basically if my normal vegas weekend was $500, $700 or $1,000 for everything excluding clubs since I don't think I'll get much out of that. Could I instead devote that to pure gambling and get the same value of comped rooms and food etc? I'm not willing to go above my budget whatever I happen to set it to be for a trip but it's normally 500-1000. I try to do vegas fairly cheap but I don't mind spending more if I get value. Or at my lower end budget should I just pay for myself and deal with not having much status at the hotel? Or can I leverage the money I'd normally spend to use for gambling instead?
