    So for the past 3 years I have too busy with work and family things that each time I wanted to plan a Vegas trip just could not find the time and this was after visiting 10 times in 6 years. This year I have banked much vacation so I began planning my Vegas return. Booked SW from Pittsburgh to Vegas RT NS for $290.00. They had this crazy sale that I could not pass up then I began my search for hotels. Now I am a dedicated Ballys fan, I like the pool and the location on the strip is ideal plus I can stumble across Flamingo Rd from The Stage Door. Anyway I went online to book 8 nights and got 5 comped nights with Friday at 39.00, Sat 49.00 and Wednesday night at $47.00. I have zero points and have not dropped a dime in a CET property since May 2014. Question how long do they keep records of prior play, because to get 5 nights comped and such low rates has me confused.

    Not sure how long they keep records, but its atleast 5+ years. Caesars is quite liberal with room comps and what you got might have been a teaser offer. A bit of an overcomp to get you to come back

    I just got comped 5 nights in June at the Paris, and I certainly do not play at CET properties enough to warrant that comp. We live in Laughlin, NV.

    I presume, that offer was also a teaser offer, and I took it. Although, I had called the property directly, 3 days in a row, and finally got this amazing offer this morning. BTW, talked to a different CSR rep today at the Paris, and the 5 comped nights offer was there, but not on the web site.

    Anyway, congrats on your wonderful offer.

    Win big and have lots of fun.

    As I related before. It was 10 years that I hadn't played at ANY CET property and I went to book a room in Reno and was offered a weekend comp.
     
    Well, Canada and Massachusetts are closed, back to Lake Tahoe
    Oh what the heck, I've got vacation and myVegas points to burn. . . .

    I haven't been in about 24 months, and when I log in...all I'm getting is a few bucks off. Maybe I need to abstain this year also until I hit the 3 year mark.

    Do you have a local CET property that you go to?

    Yeah, I went from getting some good comps to getting just a few bucks off about 3 years ago. I have to wonder if it's linked to switching to Bally's from Flamingo. The comps started after my first stay at Flamingo and I didn't get a single one in the time I've stayed at Bally's. And I go 2-3 times/year. I'm sure it's nothing, but I'm very curious.
