    I've always had either 2 weekday or buy 1 get 1 from them but I've never had an issue getting in touch with a host and seeing what they can do.

    I just noticed that the commissary is only open from 6:00 am the 3:30 pm Sundays thru Thursdays. Friday & Saturday 6:00 am thru 10:30 pm. The Sundays thru Thursdays until 3:30 pm is pretty lame

    We basically got the same mailer, a little more free play but no mob museum tickets.

    I keep saying I'm going to the mob museum but I end up forgetting. Free tickets would probably motivate me.

    I think that will be my motivation. I like reading the different displays at the Plaza like John Gotti's jaguar.

    BTW correct me if I'm wrong but for the $15 free slot play any 3 days in Vegas Greg's mailer I see it as let's say your stay is Friday & Satuday to check out Sunday you'd get $15 in free play for all 3 days for a total of $45. As for the $10 dining credit that is only $10 total over 3 days and not $30 in total over 3 days.

    That is correct. Up to $45 in FP, $10 in RC.

    Jan, Feb, and March booked using my 1 free night, 2 free nights would have been better but beggers can't be choosy (lol).

    I had the same problem with valet service. $7 a day to valet park but you can get it taken care of with play. Problem is nobody knows what you're talking about when you try and get validation. Then you need to do it on a daily basis.The last thing I want to do is spend each day chasing down a $7 voucher.

    Thanks for confirming this. I had a similar offer and originally believed it meant $5 per day for $15 total. I had an opportunity to stop by last Saturday and used $15, in addition to some other promotions.

    When I was there in October they told me it was $x/day and it resets at midnight. So when I go in January, I understand the offer as $15 friday, Saturday, and Sunday with it resetting at midnight each day.

    I hope the OP gave them a good bashing on Tripadvisor for the less then stellar service. Obviously the "A" game crew is not working the graveyard shift.

    Question: In VegasGreg's mailer it say $10 resort credit, so if he wants to use it at restaurant does he charge the bill to his room and the $10 will be taken off at the end of his stay?

    Allegedly this is how it's supposed to work. When I charged to the room, the resort credit wasn't taken off and I had to email with the hotel. They eventually reversed the charge on my credit card, but still disappointing since other casino/hotels seem to have the resort credit nailed down.

    I received another mailer yesterday, that's four in about a month. More then the last year +, maybe they finally realized they need even low rollers, willing to play 6-8 hours a day.

    I just received an offer for a BJ tournament in two weeks. I don't understand their timing on sending these mailers.
