    Okay, I had 4 days comped at Harrah's booked in August and a 5 day comped trip at PH booked for October. I canceled the October trip because I wanted to move to Bally's instead. I also cut my Harrah's portion from 4 days to 2 days because I am going to move to the Mirage.

    My comps/rates haven't changed on the calendar. They are still the same as when I had the 4 day and 5 day trips booked.

    Does it take a bit to refresh my calendar? Or did I screw myself?

    If the offers are still good, then....

    I am confused. How did you screw yourself?

    I think you are saying that you assumed your comps were worse because you had two trips booked, and you expected them to get better once you cancelled? If so, I don't think that is how it works, I think comps are based on how many rooms are available for the time you are interested in, and how occupancy is trending. For example, I have 4 nights comped booked for next week. If I look at the calendar for those dates now, only 2 nights are comp and the rates on the other two are pretty high. If I cancelled my comp, the calendar would not go back to showing 4 nights comp, I'd be on the hook for the current posted rates.

    Apologies if I've completely misunderstood what you were asking.

    Again, sorry this was confusing. It made sense to myself... lol

    What I am saying is back in April, I booked my August trip (100% comped at Harrah's) and my October trip (100% comped at PH).

    I started looking at Bally's in October instead of PH because of the reno'd South Tower. For the first time in a long time, it was showing Bally's at $75 for that Saturday night and free for the rest and unable to book new tower.

    I thought that by dropping my Harrah's trip to 2 nights instead of 4 and cancelling PH, that my Saturday night would become free again. (Since I was cancelling PH for those same dates).

    I didn't realize the calendar was based more on dates than what I had already booked. So, I screwed myself by cancelling 100% free PH to try to improve the Bally's Saturday which now still costs me.....

    I have had the max booked and cancelled a few to rebook and it made no difference. As written its based on whatever method they use, not by what you are personally consuming.

    There are many, many factors that can CHANGE what you can book.

    Your ADT getting better - get more rooms.

    Your ADT getting lower - might get more rooms cause they want to get you
    back. Or less cause they think you are worth less.

    Conventions or some other event just cancelled, freeing up rooms.

    Convention booking up, room inventory goes down, etc.

    Guy in marketing has to hit XX occupancy by end of qtr or lose job - so he swings the pendulum towards easier rooms.

    Or accounting is in trouble and swings it back the other way.

    The rest of us just booked so many free rooms, the inventory dries up.

    CET comps (unless through a host or specific offer code) are all about how much they think you'll lose to them in a day. There's a max number of reservations you can have, and sometimes a max number of nights comped in a row, but the number of offers booked does not decrease the quality of what you see.
