    Uhh, a Black Friday Giveaway just appeared in my app for a $50 Gift Card. My normal GC offers in LV are currently in the $300-400 range. Did others get this offer that usually have higher offers? I'm hoping they didn't lower the GC offers and this is just an oddity.

    IMHO, it's the standard corporate offer which gets sent to "everyone". I often get offers for $20 FP when I am at the $400 level.

    I've seen silly FP or crappy gift offers in the past. But never GCs

    I did not get this…but I wouldn’t worry about it.

    There was a time when I had $1000 freeplay offers and also “stay with us and receive $25 resort credit!” Both offers for LV market, both for the same dates. Tough choice!

    They throw everything at the wall to see what sticks. Some people may over-value certain freebies and choose their offers in a suboptimal manner. A win for CET when this happens.

    I see it online as $50 Gift Card or Freeplay with an unknown 'play-up':

    Enjoy 5 nts (11/25-30) & get a $50 Amazon.com or Best Buy Digital Gift Card OR $50 Casino Play! Play up to earn upgraded gift or Casino Play!

    Same here. I just was in LV last week on a $375 free play offer and recently just got the same $25 and $50 offers. Their AI is terrible, or they just mass email and don’t care how irritating it is to their players.

    I can't say for sure on this one, but CET has migrated pretty strongly to the 'play-up' model for anything other than FP.

    Probably a mistake, doesn't match up to what I usually see.
    Could also be the start of CET's next phase of cost cutting.

    I asked my host today about the lack of Caesars free play offers besides that $50 Black Friday one and magically she had my regular offer with the $225 freeplay emailed to me

    Can someone tell me why I would ever fly from New Jersey to Las Vegas for a $50 gift card when my regular offers land me much much higher? They may be better off with no offer rather than pissing people off.

    I agree - they just come up with different stuff, throw it against the wall and hope for the best.

    I too have $400 fp offers for fall, but have gotten similar mailers with $25 or $50. Has been like that for years.

    And some people will fly to Vegas for that. Just like some people get excited about getting 100 Tier Credits for some promo. Different strokes for different folks.

    My host told me there are no free play offers at least yet for November or December. Just some garbage.

    My gf and I each got this, also at $50.

    This is, by far, the lowest gift card amount we have received in years. Meanwhile, other offers are normal.

    Unless CET has plans for many, easy to achieve, play-up levels, I don't know what their thinking is with this offer. Especially since it comes at a traditionally slow time in Vegas.

    I haven't been to Vegas for 18+ months and I haven't received offers for anything past October (other than 5 free nights). I used to get $750 free play before that for months up to September. I hope to show some action and then get comped rooms and offers re-instated.
