    So I haven't really played at any Boyd property in at least a year, and look at my offers today...
    AND it looks like they finally got their head out of their ass and joined up, so room offers are good at ALL properties!

    If you are sapphire, you must have played there within a year. Points disappear after a year (tier points)

    I haven't been to Vegas in 2 years. We're going back in August. Our offers were 2 comp nights at any place of the 7, and we are Ruby. Not bad!

    Well, yes, Boyd has changed.
    I used to get offers for 5 nights, gold card for 2 on food/beverage, $100 freeplay per night stay.
    Now my offer is the same as yours. It has indeed changed.

    I am Emerald, next year will be Ruby.

    I got that offer but I'm going in June and have no offers for that month. These casinos drive me nuts with their inconsistent offers.

    I have had three nights consistent at Sams Town, and no joke I haven't stepped foot in that place since October 2014.

    Well after 10 years and roughly 20 trips I'm cut off after my stay in two weeks. Still can't believe I lasted this long considering I'm a poker/sports player with laughable coin-in slot or vp play. But they're not running me off as $36 for a downtown weekday room is a great bargain as is $3 corona $4 red bull/vodka in the book.

    So, I wonder if they will combine coin-in now. If I have $10k coin-in at MSS, then go to Sam's Town for the evening and put in $5k over there will they work together?

    That's what I'm hoping, as I like to play a combo of off strip and downtown Boyd in the same trip.
     
    Now with added Augusto

    Same here, Jimbo.
    I like gambling at MSS, but the rooms/food options better at GC or Orleans.

    I sounds like most people are back where they started. It would be a savvy move for someone with Boyd to sit down with a blogger, explain the changes we know about and clarify some of the other questions people have like when the new acquisitions will join BConnected and if some of the rating calculations have changed.

    I actually emailed them about this very thing. I was told the coin in will stay separated for each property. It seems strange given they are linking the free rooms together for seven properties.

    Hey Now!
    I will ask my Host at Orleans. She seems to be fairly honest.

    My offers seem to be the same as it's always been like for the past 4 years.....granted sometimes the site would go down but when it goes up again it seems nothing changed.

    Wow, I am jealous. I hardly get any free night offers anymore. And I am Ruby which is the lowest card level, guess I don't put in enough play to warrant getting any comped nights.

    I never actually book using my mailers, I just email my host to arrange everything, but I do keep track of the number of nights and FP that the mailers contain.
    For MSS I was at 4 nights and $100 in FP, then it dropped to 3 nights and $50 in FP, then finally $25. But on the way back up again. 4 nights and $75 in FP. Our host never brings up the mailer offers. If we want 5 nights, she takes care of it.

    At Suncoast, my latest offer is for 4 nights and $50 in FP. Since we only stay there once a year, I didn't even bother with a host. I just booked four comped nights in Aug and I'll just use points for our food. Since we get the Gold Card at MSS, I don't spend a lot of points. I am Emerald and have 2.2 million points. Every Oct, for our anniversary we cash out 600,000 points and just piss it away on slots that we would never play otherwise. Wheel of Fortune, Blazing 7s etc. But otherwise, it is almost always VP on a bartop.

    Having the same problem here. Not ready to book yet exactly but wondering if a phone call takes care of this error?

    Thanks in advance.
