    Tell us about a comp(s) that you received that you believe your play did not warrant.

    I played like $100 in MGM and I got three free nights. I don't think it was warranted regardless if it was a teaser offer or not.

    Got one of the 3night "teaser" offers that V/P (and Wynn/Encore) sends out, last year....IMMEDIATELY took them up on it.
    We enjoyed the room...but didn't really stay on property (Palazzo) because it was WAAAY overpriced for everything (instead we played/ate downtown)

    I put nothing in the machine at cosmo. The cw came over and explained how to get my free play for signing up and free beers.

    pretty sweet deal for a low roller at a fancy place like that.

    In the early days of the Cosmo, they offered me 3 nights in a wraparound, $1200 in free play, and $450 in food. I had never played there.

    Teaser offers have no relation to regular offers.

    They are a teaser. Trying to get you hooked. Or said another way, they are trying to find the real players.

    I got that too, I literally signed up and spent like $40 and they sent that. It was awesome! Booked immediately. We didn't leave the whole time! I got like 4 more after that, but they've since dried up.. as far as I know since you can't check online anymore!

    I think that's about it. I'm shocked when I get anything or even a super low rate to be honest, I usually think the Mlife website screwed up.. which is entirely possible haha.

    Played very little at Sands Bethlehem PA while passing through and got an offer from Venetian for 3 nights in a Rialto Suite, $1000 freeplay, $750 dining credit.

    Oddly my offer from Sands Bethlehem was only $25 freeplay once a week for a month or two.

    I might have to drop $40 in there just to see what happens. As I've never played there before I'll make sure to sign up for the players card.

    I did not take advantage of this but after spending a few nights at Cosmo last year during March Madness they sent me an offer for a free cruise.
    I was kind of shocked as I was there partially on business and played less than I usually do at Aria or B.

    I got the Wynn one too last year. I had played $20 in a slot machine there in 2009 and hadn't been back since. Couldn't use the offer though.

    I booked 3 nights free at Paris. This is on playing 2.50 coin in per bet at VP there for maybe 30 mins.

    This is in contrast to the 8000 that I _lost_ at Aria last year. They are currently offering me 79 dollars on select nights (which I can't even find) and a 100 dollar resort credit if I stay there 3 nights.

    I am platinum with Mlife and never offered a free room at any properties. I am completely done with them. Heck last year, I dropped maybe 1K at craps over an hour at Monte Carlo and haven't got a thing from them.

    The OP wasn't asking what teaser offers are. She was asking what outrageous offers we have received.

    It's fairly common I think, for Bellagio to give better marketing offers than you would get from a host. I used this offer several times.

    3 nights in a suite
    RFB2 ($350 day food comp)
    $500-700 in FP (the $700 included $200 birthday free play)
    Limo
    VIP lounge check in.

    That is the best offer I have ever received.

    What is your level of play Josie? Slots?

    I have been thinking about trying to transition to Bellagio...

    I mostly play slots - with a bit of VP thrown in. I probably get such good offers because I play probably 10-14 hours a day - usually $3-4 a spin - sometimes $5.

    Bellagio is a great property. I have done something to tank my offers there - not sure what. I played twice as much as my BF, and he still got his very nice offer from them - me nada.

    LOL!!
    My wife got a similar offer from a local Indian Casino, for $80 FSP (they sent the mailer a few times! Each time we'd go, collect $80 and walk out, haha)
    There's a reason you got that teaser...it's because they saw you were a degenerate gambler (or took money out of a GCA ATM at a casino; as far as I can tell)
