    So apparently I have an offer standing from CET for 4 free nights. When I try to reserve two rooms it charges me for the second room. So I booked one room for just resort fees.
    However I need two rooms. Now when I go back and try to reserve the second room I'm still geting the 0 rate.
    If I book a second room are they going to cancel the reservation??????

    Any help appreciated.

    4 free nights is for four nights consecutively for you in one room, not for two nights for two rooms for you and your friends. They expect your daily gambling to fund your room nightly for four nights. If you go half the time, they expect to make half as much. They aren't going to give you double comps on those days.

    If you try to book a second reservation all they will do is flag you for having one room reserved already. It will say you already have a reservation and it will charge you full price for the second room. This is my experience with total rewards casinos.

    You're SOL here unless you have a special offer. Bigger players can get a second room comped, no doubt, but their standard "come book free rooms" mailers don't allow what you're trying to do. You need to talk to your host or book an offer that allows this.

    If you want to double book like this, a common way to do so for mid rollers is to reserve rooms in two different hotels operated by two different loyalty programs.

    Thanks..what I was expecting..just wanted to get the price for the second room so I'd know what to tell our travelling companions their cost will be so we can adjust accordingly.

    Also, if your compatriots have any historical play, have them book the room on their total rewards cards.

    Please understand what free rooms are all about.

    The casino gives out a free room for one single reason. They are making a bet you will gamble/donate enough to cover the cost of the room, and then some. This is based on your past play. Your friends have no history, so no deals. You do know some people have a daily gambling budget under $20, or less. They are NOT going to give those folks free rooms.

    AND - do not just do offers when booking. Login and pick dates. You may find you have many more options.

    Put the newbies in ellis island around the corner since they haven't told me whether they want to pay the 95 a night at flamingo i can get with gfs TR.
    Never got notification of free room offer was just checking prices for our dates and they were coming up like 17 a night. Pulled rates up and saw 0 on first four nights. Then back to reg rate.

    Keep checking. They come and go. For example, I saw I can get PH for comped for my upcoming trip. It was not there yesterday or any day before that. Chances are it won't be there tomorrow. They really do come and go, so that is why I suggest checking multiple times a day, if possible. You may be just surprised. I once missed out on Ceasar's Palace because I kept putting it off. I regret it. Once you get your choice and it's comped, BOOK IT!!!
