    Just a bit of a background to try to make light of my situation......Joined last summer to CET diamond through tier match program..... Would rate myself as a small to medium player, playing tables and sometimes slots/video poker..... Had great free play/room/gift/food offers for the 6 months of diamond I got to enjoy for 2017. There were a lot of times I barely played just to go and accept these offers. Never went through a host and a host never reached out to me period. I ended the year with 13000 TC

    Come 2018 I noticed that all those offered disappeared ( I kind of guessed this would happen due to the fact there were many trips I did not have any play) so I am not shocked.

    However what shocks me is that now hosts from Vegas and Atlantic City (my "home" area) are calling my phone directly introducing themselves to me and willing to comp my stays and offering me freebies anytime I want to visit.

    So my question is why would offers that dried up now convert to an actual host who wants to pick up the tab on everything?

    I played one month in 2018 and I have 10088 TC

    Because it's only Feb and you have 10k tier credits . Even better if you only visited once or twice

    Still doesn't make sense. The room calendar online doesn't even have comped rooms for weekends let alone offers.... Why would they be nice to me now?

    Offers usually take two months or so to appear. If you had a great Jan, you prob will get offers for Apr/May-ish. Check again in March or April and I would guess that you'll see more offers coming your way.

    I agree that it can take a couple of months for offer packages to reflect recent play. Given what you said about the calls you got, it's a little surprising that the regular availability calendar doesn't show any weekend availability, I found they react quickly. But that could be a function of how many days it took you to get to the 10088, or, if you are doing drive-bys, that your last two or three casino visits had lower play than the ones earlier in the month. Your most recent visits are going to have the most weight in their calcs that are reflected online. A human looking at your play can put together a slightly more favorable picture.

    Are you looking at only offers? Or are you entering dates into the calendar like Chuck2009x indicated. Sometimes offers can actually be more expensive for you to use. I was trying to book under two weeks out and a few of the freeplay offers would have actually had me paying for a room, while the room was totally comped if I just entered my dates into the calendar.

    This is true, I've seen that frequently during expensive weeks.
