    Man it seems like Eldorado has stolen MLife's random offer generator code and implemented it, to focus on the player I'm sure. I assume you're talking CZR here. *Most* of my offers dont have anything in the neighborhood of $200 in value attached but I still have comps 365 on the calendar everywhere except a few heavily booked dates at CP or Cromwell. I'm getting like "Travel 2500 miles and we'll give you a $35 Amazon gift card" or maybe they're worded different, but that's how I read them. And those come with 3 comp nights I guess, but they're worse rooms than my calendar has in some cases. I did get $150 for the dining credit thing but it conspicuously excluded Caesars Palace, not that I'd go anyway. And in a stroke of pure genius, my latest Caesars Palace slot tournament invite only includes Paris, PHo, Linq, and Flamingo for mandatory comp rooms to claim the offer, but I also got a Linq slot tournament invite that includes the premium towers at Caesars Palace on its room comp. Because that makes perfect sense.

    As restrictions have lifted my comps and wife's comps improved everywhere. Even now having low played CET and just returned my comp nights now include NOBU and are 7 days a week everywhere including 4th of july, labor day, edc weekends and raiders home weekends. If I add my wife as companion, suites unlock at all properties except Caesars Palace and Nobu. This was with a definitive drop in play. My mlife comps when from none to 4 free nights no resort fees and some fp and rc. I just checked to book after this most recent trip and they have now updated that to include Aria and Bellagio. In atlantic city my monthly fp offers went from 20 dollars most days to 80 dollars most days and gift cards from 25 and 30 to 100. My wife's offers too have more than tripled.

    We seem to be a total anomaly and it probably won't last, but I just wanted to throw out there that at least 2 sets of offers are improving.

    Well things just make no sense with the way my comps moved. During Covid, my CET comps went down even with a bunch of strong trips, they started to come back up around Feb, and now they are back up or higher than pre Covid. While mLife went up during Covid with very little play, just some one day drive bys when I was out there. Now mLife is way down and Fri/Sat aren't comped at all. Was thinking of moving my play to mLife, but now I think I'll try somewhere else.

    My MLife offers went sky high (for me) during Covid so that + MyKonami free plays got me in their doors. Now the offers are down (only select dates, room types, although the free play + resort credit has not changed yet)

    I am okay with it because I don't want to stay in a non smoking room though.

    CET pretty much unchanged for me. Boyd may be but i was not checking it during the pandemic. I get way more off strip comps than i can recall before, but then i never searched gold coast and sam's town much. Up to 4 nights comp on them now. Downtown comps are gone but I think they were before the pandemic.

    Myt mlife comps and caesars comps both diminished greatly. I used to be diamond at caesar and gold-pearl at mlife but I now focus my stays/play at Cosmo, Venetian, and Wynn. Interested in giving Virgin a chance soon too. If I'm playing heavily I expect comped rooms on any day of week or weekend. Good host relationships help, but mgm and caesars de-personalize the experience. Also, resort fees on "comped" rooms are a huge turn off.

    My last straw with mgm was when I moved/upgraded rooms while comped at Bellagio and was told I would only owe the difference between the comped room's price and upgraded price but was charged the full price of the upgraded room upon check-out. Neither the hotel nor the casino marketing dept was willing to accept responsibility for their mistake; I eventually spoke to someone after the trip who assured me the billing would be corrected but it never was. The whole experience left me feeling taken advantage of.

    @MCann - yes CZR. My play in Biloxi & Paris was around 1000 TC per day. Prob 750 if you average in the arrival nights. A year ago (early) I had some $400 offers. So many weekends with a fee though for me.

    My CET offers actually increased slightly in the last month.
    My Golden Nugget offers went down drastically during COVID (my own fault - I collected several free play offers and no-played them). However this week they just popped my new offers back to what they were pre-COVID. Go figure.
    My Mlife and Wynn offers are unchanged.

    Diamond here, normal play so far this year. Lost all weekend comps (Friday and Saturday) now. Guess the merger hurt some players including me.

    I am a low roller who will low roll all day, for what it's worth...

    My mlife comps are better. CET comps, well, I don't have those anymore. I will try a bit more with them on my next visit but I'm not sure they want me back.

    I do have weekday comps at Ellis Island now!

    Cosmo comps have diminished a bit but they were being a bit too good to me during covid I think.

    Out of nowhere I have a few comped nights at Sahara and the new Virgin/Mohegan place.
     
    A low strip trip? Could be….
    Boom! A comp arrives and I can’t say no

    Yup. Especially Cosmo. Used to have free rooms on weekends no resort fees. Now no free rooms at all.
    For Mlife, used to have free rooms for everything with no resort fees, now there’s only free room at the casino I play most with. While others are not great. CET has been consistently the same. Thank goodness.

    I just got a postcard from CET yesterday about the monthly fp offers for July and August. Used to be $375, now down to $225. I was just there at the end of April and had pretty strong play. One 1000 tc day and one 2500 tc day. I'm disappointed. Was planning to book that in August, now I hope one of the play up offers comes in.

    I booked a 4 night comp with FP / RC and no resort fees at Mirage last night before my offers go down at the end of the month. Booked for the start of November incase we have to cancel our August trip if the borders are still closed.

    Mlife have definitely been over comping for the past year to get people in the casinos. With the uptake in visitors I reckon they will cut those offers back soon.

    My previous Mirage offers before were a couple of nights with resort fee and no FP / RC. Elsewhere I was getting 3 nights up to MGM with resort fees and "call for free play".

    Our offers have gone up a little from CET. Surprisingly as we have had -0- play since March of 20. Our local casino is Caesars Windsor and still is not open.
    Will be at Paris Monday 375 gift card or FP; then with every 1000 TC gets 50 additional FP. Will see what the late summer offers will be after this trip. Hope to have good play.

    Didn’t read all comments so apologies if it was mentioned. I’m seeing a difference in weekend comps but it looks to be associated with raider home games.

    Initially they went way, way down for the fall but they seem to be perking up a little over the last week.

    My last Vegas visit was in March 2020 right before everything shut down. My M Life comps increased shortly after that to $50 free play/$50 food, 2-4 nights everywhere with a bonus of no resort fees at Luxor or Excalibur. With the latest batch of offers for May 2021, they increased again to $100 free play, $50/$100 food depending where I booked. 3-4 nights. No resort fees everywhere except Bellagio/Aria/Vdara.

    You might just be a victim of the demand right now. It's pretty through the roof, so if you were on the cusp of weekend comps pre-resurgence then for the short term you may be on the wrong side of this. Crowds are really kind of bananas right now

    I know you said strong play, but how does that compare to normal play. Also, there is no need to motivate people to come right now, so they are looking to save money where they can since they don't really need to offer to get people to come.

    mLife properties for this month (June) went up for me, most likely due to increased play.
