    OK, since the casinos are about to open up and we're all probably waiting for comp offers, I was making a cup of tea and reflected on the Keurig that I received as part of a Harrahs Reno comp offer.

    It was a Keurig K-Elite that was part of the "upgrade" package, you know, earn x TCs and get this.

    The other was a 55" TV set which now sits at my BFF's house. He convinced me to upgrade to a 55" 4K.

    So, how about you??

    Signed Drew Brees football

    Would’ve been a crawfish pot and a burner but they ran out.

    Some of you clearly play at a higher level than me, but, my favorite giveaway product was a real nice set of dinner plates and bowls from Caesars Windsor. They're my everyday use set now. I also got lucky and won about a grand playing 10c VP that same day - four deuces with a multiplier. So it was definitely worth the trip across the border that day!!

    @DaiLun I did not get spiffy gifts like you, but I do appreciate the personal battery chargers that were given out to all guests at the Asian Appreciation banquet last October. See below (white prong socket is mine) I hope there will be another such banquet next October.

    Golden Nugget Lake Charles gave a way some nice cast iron dutch ovens.

    Coushatta gave us a nice baking dish we still use...it is probably 8-10 years old.

    Decks of cards, t-shirts, etc.

    We are low rollers...so I am happy with what we have received...

    Have to assume I’m a “high roller” since I got a Life is Beautiful festival t-shirt from El Cortez a couple years ago...

    A Grandma's cookie for signing up for the player's club at Longhorn Casino. It was sealed up and yes, it was good.

    A Cuisinart table top grille is the best gift.
    I have also gotten two televisions and two microwaves
    All kinds of cookware that I use a lot especially when it works on induction
    All kinds of small kitchen appliances
    Nice jackets, vests and luggage
    Love the gift cards to various stores

    I have a whole room with shelves and all of them are loaded with casino gifts. I give some as gifts and let family come over and pick out something here and there.

    I also donate items that folks use for auctions to raise money for their causes.

    The really great stuff I usually use but to be honest I don't need another item. I have so much stuff.

    The crawfish boil set at Lauberge Lake Charles was a fiasco. There were some pissed off people. People got way too mad over something so silly. We were a little late to claim ours but they gave us free play worth approximately the retail price. I’d rather the free play and if I really want crawfish boil equipment I’ll go out and buy exactly what I want and not whatever random brand they give away.

    I too have a baking dish from Coushatta. I love that place. I think it’s actually my favorite casino to play slots in. I’ve won more there than all other casinos combined. Unfortunately it would be an 8 hour drive from where I live now but when I lived in Conroe I went at least once a month.

    My play doesn't really warrant comp gifts, so the only times I get them are as part of a promotion or something like the Great Gift Wrap-up.

    I got a nice necklace at GGWP a couple of years ago. And earlier this year I earned enough points to redeem for the jeweled rat at Four Queens.

    I got a pen and pad of paper from Caesars back in the day.

    It was a 'self-serve' comp as I had to hide it in my carry on when I checked out.

    I'm a lowroller especially compared to some so I have nothing that exciting.. a $50 gift card is probably the biggest monetary value comp I've gotten. Got some decent cookware (dutch oven, blender, toaster, electric skillet, etc).

    The most unique comp I got was a Bernie Kosar bobblehead doll as he has a partnership with the Steakhouse at MGM Northfield Park.

    Sadly a comp I was actually excited to get, an electric blanket this past winter, was completely dead out of the box. No light, no heat, no anything. And I had waited about a week to open it so there was no way for me to exchange it or anything.

    Free rooms
    Free buffet occasionally
    Free play every so often, if I am good

    I **REFUSE** to wait on line for an hour for a free oven mitt, however!

    Hey, I'm a low roller!

    Comps are nice, but in the end, we're actually paying for them when we donate our bankrolls to those slot/VP machines, etc. during our Vegas trips and to our local venues. :D I'm not a high roller, but I've received a few items over the years...
    Luggage Sets
    Mini Coolers
    Cookware
    Hoodies & T-shirts
    Keychains
    Coffee Mugs
    Baseball Caps
    Pens
