    Just a hypothetical.....

    Would you book a room offer with a 2 night minimum JUST to get a $100 freeplay when the resort fee is $33/day?

    Basically would you spend $66 to get $100 and a chance at turning it into something more?

    If I could get a fully comped room instead - nope.

    If my alternative was to pay $100 for a room instead, then yes.

    I am totally confused about the question.

    What are your alternatives?

    I assume she's asking if you would double book just to net $30-ish in EV. I.e., would you be willing to check in to your hotel, then walk across the street to check into a second hotel - and pay the resort fees - just to get the freeplay.

    For me - not a chance. Too much of a hassle for such a small payoff. Plus add in the chance (even if it's a one-in-a-million chance) that they might charge me for the room when they see I've reaped the freeplay and then never returned...nope.

    correct , doubble book pay the resort fee on one to get the 100$ free play so basicly 65$ in free play , no to much trouble

    If I planned to stay there as my only hotel option, yes. As a double book for perks only, no.

    Exactly. My thought was no too but I was just wondering what others thought.

    No. I don't have time for stuff like that. If you need me to pay $66, save every one the time and energy and offer me a room straight up for that price.

    I would do it without thinking if there is a real $30 for me to pick up. The problem is $100 free play is much less than $100 cash,
    but the resort fee of $30/night is real. SO you may end up getting nothing (or losing money) for the trouble.
