    I tried to put it all in my title, but here it goes....

    I want to eat breakfast the day I check out, charge it to my room, and then use my express comps at checkout. I do not plan to do anything else that morning (gamble etc.)
    So, should I try and squeeze in that free breakfast or will it hurt my ADT?

    I stayed a total of 3 nights at Bellagio for the reference.

    Thanks,
    BnV

    Mlife trips are based on the number of nights you stay, not like CET where you have to worry about triggering days, etc.

    Agreed. At a Total Rewards property, the answer would be a definite maybe....lol...But, TR looks at Daily ADT, Trip ADT, annual ADT, and even 3 year trends (or so I have heard). I am getting to the point where I go, have a good time, and let the offers land where they land.

    If everyone subscribed to this theory, people would have a lot more fun and a lot less fretting before, during and after their trip.

    Once you start worrying about your play, your actions or consequences and altering what you want to do, when you want to do it, for the amount and duration you wish to do it for, you are on their turf / acting in their interests, not your interests.

    Comp programs were established to guilt/prod/push players into playing for more $/ longer periods than they initially planned. Comp programs are designed to keep the player worrying about pleasing their host, banking enough play for a future trip, banking enough points to get a new shinny card upgrade so you can cut in line and return to losing more money faster or to get a couple bucks of free cocktails in a room off the casino floor, etc..

    Comp programs are designed to extract the maximum amount out of your wallet at the lowest cost to the casino. Casinos spend millions on marketing techniques each year to separate billions annually from your pockets. Gamblers focus on the millions to the determent of their billions. Most people fall into this trap at various levels including most posters here (including yours truly at times). The gambler's mindset is to try to get something for nothing or they wouldn't gamble in the first place. Comp programs play on this as do scam artists (Nigerian chain letters, get rich quick schemes).

    Play your game instead of letting the casino play you.

    As said, CET is per day. MLIFE is over the course of your trip.

    As to using your express comps... I would not use them on that last day. I really do not think it would matter as to your theo. But, I know I will need/use those EC's at some future time anyways, so why risk it?
