Color me skeptical.. that would differentiate MGM from other programs and not in a good way. Even parsimonius Eldorado isn't doing that. Maybe there's some internal promo or quota for reservations department. "You're all spending too much time talking, answering questions, but not actually booking rooms! Your job is to get the people into the casino!" Maybe it's the operator's line of BS to book reservations.. If it happens, I'll use existing points and resort credit until gone, which might be one short stay... and stop playing at MGM. Free rooms are part of the LV lure to me. I'm not fooled into believing that freeplay will convert to cash that I take home; they know the psychology is that players are likely to play any winnings on freeplay. More resort credit? I'm not paying for a plane ticket and a room for the promise of some free food. More cruises, anyone?
