Booked a room under a better code - will I get caught?

    I'm really up in the air over this. I got my email offer a few days ago and I was looking at booking for 6 nights, May 26 - June 1 in a downtown hotel . I just couldn't believe how good the offer was on the website as it was better then what was in the email.

    I called and tried to book it and it was considerably higher (+$170) so I said no, not right now. I then looked and looked at it online and it was so much better that I booked it online. I just couldn't understand it.

    AHHH. I finally figured out when I wrote down the code from my email it was supposed to be a 5 (in part of the code) and I wrote down a 3. Haha, codes with 2 and 1 are really good.

    So I'm up in the air over what to do.

    I am guessing the variance in the code is tied to level of play. It may have also been they sent out different offers just to see what resulted in the most bookings. Marketing folks have been known to do that as a test.

    If their system allowed you to actually BOOK the room, you should be just fine. Did you still actually pay something or was it all comp?

    I'm sure the offers are tied to level of play as the better the offer the more free play and restaurant comps you got. Ranged from none to $100 of each. And the better the offer you got 3 free nights.

    But the real big savings was in how much they were charging for rooms. The better offers paid considerably less for there rooms then the basic offer. Basic offer was $511 with taxes & resort fees for 6 nights. The offer I booked under was $320 total. AND on that offer they're supposed to give you 3 free nights. I'm thinking I would be pushing it to ask for that!

    $320 and then three free? Still, if they allowed the booking, I really think you will be fine. Especially if you are giving them real money.

    I seriously doubt you will have an issue.

    They have to have some kind of check for these codes. Otherwise what is stopping people from sharing and everyone using it?

    Some codes really can be used by anyone. In some cases they do not want them to get around, but realize it may be out of their control. If they really want to lock down a code, they tie it to your players number.

    Yup.
    Usually if you're PAYING for a room, vs comp. at all, you should be good.

    If you call the front desk at this casino they can tell you what code is tied to your account. You would think that they would have some type of system that wouldn't allow anyone to book under any code. BUT they don't. The BIG question is, when I check in will they catch the discrepancy?

    I guess this will be my first BIG gamble in Vegas this year! LOL
