    I guess I don’t understand this. Here is an offer for an iPad or free play with the ability to play up for a Mac book or up to $1500 FP and there is complaints. Don’t go not a big deal but this is a decent promotion imho.
    Yes I am 7* and have been for 6 years and diamond for many years before so have a good idea about Caesars.

    Well, if you are talking physically, as far as adding memory, or storage, that may be true (I am not a Mac person), but if you are talking upgrading the Apple gift to a better model, that is not true, unless something has changed in the past year or so.

    TWICE in the past 3 years I have walked into an Apple store with my sealed Apple iPad box from a casino promotion, and returned the item for an Apple gift card equal to the full retail value of the iPad. You could then use that gift card credit and pay the difference to upgrade to a better model. Personally, I sold the gift cards, to a 3rd party, for about 90% of the face value. The whole process was easy.

    Yes, I am specifically speaking to adding memory, or storage, or upgrading anything. With regard to swapping it out for a gift card, I haven't tried it, so I will let you speak to that. I know that at my local store, if you don't have an Apple receipt, it's a no-go.

    Also, note that that's only good if you live near an authorized Apple outlet. I wouldn't consider it worth the hassle, and I only live 6 miles from the nearest Apple store.

    One CET AC, two Boyd. Both were the quickest returns I've ever done (on separate occasions, about 16 months apart). I don't recall them even spending a minute checking serials, and they definitely didn't ask me where it was purchased. I just said they were gifts and I didn't like the model, didn't want to ask the gift giver for the receipt (that part was the truth), and 2 minutes later, a gift card in my hand.

    For this promo, seems that the free play is a higher value than the iPad. In every one of these type of promos that I have seen, they always gave out the lowest version of the model. So, I'd take the free play. But, if I had to take another iPad, I'd be doing this again.

    For me it’s a rough call. I literally just bought a new MacBook Pro. However free play is always nice. Given that the table play in Vegas let’s you keep up winning free play bets, there is a decent enough probability that if you play a game like baccarat you will be ok.

    I've wondered if LV would allow use of table free play on baccarat??

    I did that at a CET local once with a friend betting opposite and they didn't care. (Slight risk that dragon could have come out)

    Is anyone getting offers for Atlantic City over the 4th of July? Im interested in checking it out but havent seen anything yet, though Im likely not on their list as I havent been there in years.

    Not yet but I just started receiving offers for Baltimore, which also is about to open, so I would imagine by this weekend they’ll be out if they’re planning on sending 4th related offers.

    Do your Baltimore offers include gift cards or anything special? Or is it just rewards credit and free play? Philadelphia sent me reward credits and free play only. Nothing yet from AC but my host told me it is coming.

    For Baltimore, all I have is FP showing up in the app starting on Friday. Waiting on the email to see how much it is. Not planning to drive 400 miles there anytime soon to get it, but hoping that the sweet monthly mailer from the before-time returns.

    Those are likely two separate offers and you can’t book two different offers at the same time.

    The stay with us and you also get offers frequently include freeplay and/or resort credit of some sort, so you get everything that is being offered under the same offer code. Hope that makes sense...

    Just noticed DH had $40 dining credit for all the properties except CP, Cromwell & Nobu.
    I didn't have the same offer.
    We had booked Cromwell under DH & Ballys under me for our July trip (2 kids & DM coming too).
    So cancelled both, rebooked Ballys w/ dining credit under DH & Cromwell under my name (had to add Mom's card to get it).
    I only looked cuz we got a offer for the Great Gift Wrap Up in our emails today!

    Don't know about Vegas, but my host said they'll be doing it in Indiana for the month of July. Not sure how they will handle it for the rest of the locations. Somewhat sucky since I'll be in Vegas for part of July.

    Did your No COM offers disappear from the app? They were there for me a couple days ago and I had trips booked, but they are gone now.
