    Me and my husband have linked accounts on Mlife. Last november I went on a trip to Vegas with my mom. My Mlife was not showing any comped offers, but my husbands account did. So I called and I could use his offer on my name.

    Maybe upcoming May, me and my husband go on a trip to Vegas. This time, I have offers showing up in Mlife and he doesn't. For example, can I:
    Book night 1,2,3 on my name, with an offer showing up in my account and then book an offer in his name, with an offer showing up in my account for night 4,5,6? Or does the 72 hours rule aplly?

    Interesting question.

    I'm surprised they let you use his offer and not require him to be there. Technically, they're still separate accounts.

    Based on them being separate accounts, normally I'd say the 72 hour rule wouldn't apply. But the fact that they let you use his offer makes me think they might enforce it in this case. It may depend on what information shows up in their system when you go to book the 2nd one (or if you try to do it all in one call). I think if you're going to try to finesse it by making two calls, I'd probably book the one using your husband's offer first. Cause then when you call to do the 2nd one, his name may be showing up on the 1st, and they may overlook the fact that you're actually on it.

    First, you need to understand why they do comp offers. They look at your play history and put a value on you. Say for example, Johnny plays enough that we can give him a room for 3 days and we are confident he will play that much again to cover the room cost. If Johnny is not there, then it is not so easy. Why would they give away $300 in room costs (just a number for discussion) if Johnny is not coming, but his wife that spends $30 a day is?

    Same reason I can not give my 4 nights is a suite to my son. He is broke.

    Once you understand that, then go from there. Depending on play level and maybe past use of comps, the host can override and authorize it. MAYBE.

    My experience has been that they enforce the 72 hour rule on linked accounts. I also used one of my husband's offer without him at Aria last year. Same thing happened all of the offers now come in my name instead of his. Likely because my account is the one with the most play now.
