    I know that most of the board is mid to lower level players.

    My offers are very good relative to the amount that we spend. Probably close to the 40 percent mark, of what we bring. That's good enough for us.

    Something that I don't recall hearing about, are the offers that players such as Shifter, Packer, Natedog, UK, PP (when you did get them)....

    What type of offers do the bigger players get?

    I know it's just a formality, with all the backend comps.

    I get no Mlife offers.

    I get your basic suite + RFB Buzz offer from MGM.

    I get nothing from any other casino.

    I now get $200/quarter in promos from the Beau.

    Down from $5k/mo a couple of years ago.

    I don't get any backend comps.

    Everything is comped upfront including AF.

    The only thing that's comped on the backend is the 5k+ bottles of wine.

    I only get those when I know I have the play to cover it.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Did they stop at a certain point?

    I wanted to see, what type of offers the computer would generate for you guys, relative to the board.

    I'm just new to the board as when VC folded I looked for my Vegas fix in the morning. I so enjoy the Trip Reports. And posts from those you just mentioned. I'm female. OVER 50. I don't play poker although my handle might suggest so. I used to and suck at it. I'm a slotter. I'm not getting though how people use MLIFE comps? I've not ever used them? OK I lied..One time I brought 4 kids down for the GSP UFC fight, and tix were like $500 each, so $2000, so my host comped $1000 of it and the other thou came off my express comps. That was years ago though. Like, my host looks after everything. My balance is zero at the end of any of my trips, but I might also only lose $4000? I'm not a High Roller. But I've been with MB since 03? I don't ever pay for shows, and I've taken 6 seats to MJ at MB, food, limos. I even got Mayweather Pacquio fight which my host had assured me of, but when I got down (which was I tell you difficult as when I checked in, found out that Corporate had taken away my two seats, while I brought down my son and his best friend for the fight. Ended up getting them in anyways at last hour.). I go on the MB cruises which are a lot of fun with LIKE MINDED GAMBLERS. You gotta gamble though on the cruise. I guess I do to get invited back a 3rd time. And the hosted cruises are awesome. You leave outta the private airport around 4 am, get to Ft Lauderdale. It's a trek, at 4 am, as the cruise send off dinner you eat and drink a lot. So a lot of same travellers I know choose to fly themselves rather than go on the charter. Even though, you have to be there to make floor points to put in the drawing for a grand suite, rather than just the balcony room that I get. I gamble maybe 4-12 hours a day? I'm at the 20% level of who I go with. I think maybe it's just cause I've been loyal to one casino? I have NOT had any RYE this evening.

    And just in case anyone questions that GSP UFC fight years ago, was a no go..so the second card was $500 too much for the comped tix...But the boys enjoyed the card anyways. Thought I'd clarify that for any UFC enthusiasts.

    It's been my experience that "the board" receives much better offers through the mlife site and mail than I do. I do get mail inviting me to table tournaments, golf tournaments, concerts and free offers from time to time from a few of the mgm properties in vegas. I really never looked at mlife online but just did. Like shifter said, I too am getting free nights only at Aria it looks like. That being said, any of the properties I have contacted (Mgm and MB) through a host gave me whatever I wanted. All upfront comps. Suites, golf, limos, concerts, shows food and booze. They used to give me free play/promo chips. I think they stopped that couple years ago. Bottom line, I have never booked anything through mlife offers of any kind. Only use my host.

    Last year the Buzz offer came with a mansion villa, $500 day in F&B, 2 show tickets.

    But they stopped that and it's just the generic suite + F&B now.

    I long time ago they used to give out promo chips like candy but they never really came in offers.

    I don't really get Vegas offers any more. I just call my host and tell him or her when I am coming and what I want. I generally know what they will comp (suite, transport, shows, spa, food, drinks, club, cabana, etc) so I never end up asking for more than I know I will get. I receive my best comps at MGM, then Cosmo, then Wynn (and then Venetian and CET, but I almost never stay at those and don't get the same comps there)

    Pretty much what the others have said. Host will comp most of our request.

    They also do bill backs to comp things at other casinos like shows, meals, golf, etc.

    Those are the hardest comps to get.
