    This trip, earned about 6700 tier points at Golden Nugget, and I believe it's 5.00 per point?
    I just wondered for our next trip, I know room will be comped, but is playing about 33,000
    dollars enough to ask for freeplay and some food comp?
    I have a host but always only get free rooms, never asked for more. This trip was higher play
    than usual.
    Thanks for any answers.

    6700 Tier Points over how many days? That's important in determining what, if any FP or FBC you would be entitled to.

    Or, you could ask your host what you would get, and if you think it's too low and you have another offer that is better, hint (politely) to your host that you have a better offer somewhere else. That has worked for me before.

    Did you get any backend comps on your last trip? Nice TR by the way! If your host is doing his/her job, they should take a look at your play at the end of the trip and knock off some room charges if you were above the theo for the rooms.

    I don't play at GN, but one trip over my average hasn't usually resulted in more upfront comps, but I have got significant back end comps for higher than average play. It seems like it takes a couple of trips to move the FP/F&B needle upfront.

    No back end comps, actually just a room for two nights, and we played there 3 full days.

    I am of the school of "If you don't ask, you don't get". I would ask my host, "Because of my (increased) play last trip, am I eligible for any "extras"?"

    Unfortunately, I don't get to ask that much, because I'm always going down on offers, and it's pretty clear that at CET you don't get to "double up".

    Thanks!
    I emailed host for our next trip to see if she could add some freeplay or food credit.

    What do you play? $11K coin in, all slots, should get someone's attention at GN. $11K all Video poker not so much. Dont tell them your hubby played on your card. Make sure it looks like all that play if yours. Especially if you are dealing directly with a host.

    No, I didn't tell them that. I am hoping they up the offer for next time. Will see what host says, she usually takes 3-4 days to respond, sigh
