I am really new to this. I went to Vegas a couple of times over 20 years ago with my family. I went back two years ago, stayed cheap (Excalibur) for 5 days and based on info I read on this forum I introduced myself to a host while I was there. I had two rooms and he comped one of them mid-trip and comped the other one (refunded the charge on my credit card) when I got home. Now I get offers from Mlife. Most are for Excalibur or Luxor, though one offer is for either 3 nights at Excalibur or 2 nights at Bellagio. Seems kind of odd. I am going back August 1. This will be my first experience in Vegas with a comp offer. I will be staying at Luxor for five nights. The first two nights are on a MyVegas reward on my son's account. The last three nights are on a comp offer (Mlife site) on my account. Then we will be moving to the Flamingo. I have already learned enough from this Board to know that I need to have a certain level of play on my comped nights before asking for back end comps. But my question is, when considering back end comps, will they consider my play for all 5 days? Or will they just consider my play for the three comped days - the days the room is in my name (as far as back end comps go)? My son doesn't gamble. I was also wondering if I should use his card, instead of mine, the first two days to see if it generates any offers for him.
