    So can somebody give a quick summary of what you get doing this. I am CET Diamond Plus and Mlife Platinum - so could get Wynn Platinum. As I seed it this would get me:

    $x of freeplay in birthday month
    $150 dinner credit in birthday month
    $100 spa credit
    2 masters classes

    What else does Platinum get? As I read it the 3 free nights part is only good in LV If the Boston property is your main casino. Assuming the only Wynn property I have played at is LV - would I be able to get the free nights in Boston if Wynn Platinum? Anything else I am missing?

    Have to decide if it is worth it to schedule a trip before 8/31 to do this.

    In Vegas, a 20% bonus on points (not to be confused with tier credits) earned from machine play.

    Those are the only benefits with a dollar value attached. The birthday free play is vague, intentionally, I suspect. Most likely based on historical play and not tier level.

    And yes, if you predominantly play in LV, you can use the 3 free nights for Boston. In fact, you only get to use them in Boston according to their terms and conditions.

    If you play in LV, your free nights in LV would be from your offers (and similarly for Boston players in Boston), which aren't mentioned in the terms and conditions. Offers are periodic. The marketing language makes them sound seasonal but I haven't really kept tally if they are truly on a 3 month cadence. I always get one shortly after returning from a trip. I think if you visit more often than every 3 months, you'll get more offers. But there's a max of only one offer (comped room + fp + rc) waiting for me until I use it or the expiration date comes. Then a new one comes, repeat. There's always a bunch of other offers for discounted rooms or f&b only that don't seem to expire.

    Oh, and that's just observations from a non-hosted player. With a host, I'm sure it's a lot different, better.

    I'm Platinum (just above the 7000 point threshold) and have been assigned a host in Boston, as that's where I earned all of my points during my recent visit (started with 0). I was assigned a host because of how quickly I earned my points, not because of my tier level. I also have upcoming play in Vegas in October so we'll see how that affects my offers there. I do know that your play in Boston has no meaning at all to Vegas. I contacted a host in Vegas letting her know I was coming, and of my Boston play, and it was like she could have cared less (It's been many years since I've been to the Wynn in Vegas, even though I kept getting 3-free-night offers every 3 months year after year). I think you need your two hosts in both locations communicating with each other for your combined play to really make an impact in getting the same level of service at both locations.

    Anyway, I say all this to say that my host is providing me with way more than what my Platinum card gives. I think what the tiers really do is guarantee a certain level of comps, even if you don't get a host. I think it's just an absolute minimal level of service. Some people can earn Platinum in 1 day, other people it takes 365 days and many many trips to Vegas. So I think that has a major impact on if you get assigned a host, and what level of extras that host will provide you beyond what is already promised by your tier.

    Here's my opinion... The tiers are put in place so people:

    1. ...are provided a goal to try and reach with their play. If someone is close to Platinum, maybe they'll play just a bit more to reach it. More money to Wynn.

    2. ...don't feel swindled if they lost a good chunk of money and don't have anything to show for it. At least you have your status and a few comps on the side. In the past if you lost $3k with no host, you'd get nothing. At least not until the discount offers roll in after you get home. Now at least maybe you'll get your birthday credit, comp dollars, and a reason to come back instead of saying "I'll never come back here".

    3. ...who sometimes feel entitled will stop bugging the Rewards desk and hosts asking for comps. It's easy for the employees to say "take a look at this sheet that explains it all".
