    So I went to Boyd's property at Blue Chip and played my card all night on the slots (I can't remember if I did it at the tables). The next day, I noticed signage saying that BConnected was undergoing maintenance. It has been a few days since then and I went online to check my point status:

    Due to system maintenance your B Connected Point balance may be currently offline. All current play is being recorded and has been applied to your account balance. Your total balance will be visible on B Connected Online soon. Please check again later or visit your favorite B Connected property.
    TIER CREDITS
    Tier Credits are offline due to scheduled maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience; we appreciate your patience.


    What's going on??

    Didn't BConnected just undergo some changes due to ownership in other states of new casinos? I wonder if they are doing work related to integrating all the new customers.

    aaaaaand it's still down.
    Got this message from them about it. But this doesn't make any sense.

    Due to system maintenance, B Connected Online will be unavailable on July 16, 2019 beginning at 12:01am PST.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.


    If it's gonna be "unavailable" on Tuesday, then what about NOW and this past week?!?! :cuss:

    Point balances are unavailable now but not bookings and such.

    On the 16th presumably there will be no logging in for awhile.

    Hopefully once that is over they will have fall offers up. Boyd is currently the blocker on my trip planning.

    I do not yet have November. My trip is September and after that it will be - at best - February, so I wasn't as concerned.

    do we have any retired VMBers here with IT experience? perhaps you could work part time for Boyd and earn some money to spend in their casinos.
    as an added perk, if you are Ruby, the icing on the cake will be earning zero points for your play.

    It would be nice if they had an estimated time for the date of completion of this whatever

    Actually you need someone with web designer experience.

    I retired at the end of 2017, I was an IT person but I worked on the mainframe so cannot help with the bconned problems.

    Hey wow, just checked my bconned account. Never had an exclusive offer for free nights but I have one for October. 4 nights comped but only for October. As I mentioned before, not sure if this is because they added credits to my account or if it was for my actual play in 2019. I didn't play enough to qualify for sapphire, only had about 550 points but with the added credits I am over the minimum amount for sapphire.

    The amount of time they have been down, is really quite unacceptable for such a large company.
    Their whole web development staff should be fired, IMO.

    That means one person loses a part time job, then.

    Given up on them, moved on, just following for curiosity sake.

    Ha ha too funny.
    I don't really care either, I know what I played and where I ended up.
    As long as I get free rooms and some food and fp, I'll stay.

    They finally posted my Sept/Oct offers, even though the rest of the site is "under maintenance". I may take advantage of the comped rooms, but most of my gambling bankroll is probably going to CET during my October Vegas trip.

    That appears to be same system used at Binion's, QQQQ, and The D, among others. Seems odd they would use that...it gives you precise countdowns, points and comp/cashback balances...why would Boyd want to start doing that for their players?
