    we sure do, but they could also give you nothing back in return

    iPhone XS Max - use it everyday
    2 Apple TV’s 4K - love them as I cut the cord and stream everything
    iPad - still use it pretty much every day

    Samsung tablet
    Laptop
    TV plasma 50 inch which was great at the time
    Dyson fan
    Portable Coleman propane grill
    Pressure cooker, but I still haven’t opened it.
    Not expensive, but a rice cooker and I love it as it is easy.

    Lawn equipment, mower, tool set, generator

    Living in a state with only Tribal casinos, gifts are not often handed out. For the Ho-Chunk, only one of the casinos normally hands out gifts (Nekoosa).

    Local only did a one day a month (Monday - so normal workers were sunk) - earn a certain number of points and receive a gift - only the first 100 people. Normally needed $1000 play thru that day to receive the gift and of course they were gone within an hour or two. However, they did actually did do a promo in January (?) - the first time ever. Each week was a different small gift for 'invited' players. Can opener (skipped that one), very nice countertop griddle (think french toast, grilled cheese, etc), egg cooker (I was happy about that one but hubby swore when I brought it in) and a small hand mixer. Nothing very exciting whatsoever but nice to actually get something. I left them in the packages - when we move into our new place the old stove top square sandwich grill and mixer will go in the dumpster.

    I was just happy enough to come out with enough extra money during December/January to finish totally paying off my car!

    For Vegas the nicest take-home offer I was able to participate in was a Kindle fire (pricier at that time) with a play-up for an Amazon gift card. I have received others including smaller (not 55 inch) TVs and some very nice purses, etc. however doesn't pay to take time off work and fly cross-country to get them lol.

    That's an extremely impressive list overall, but I'm especially amused by this one!

    I had a great host in Las Vegas, he was at Harrahs, left to Reno, ended up in a high up position in New Orleans, some BS happened and I think hes at HardRock in Florida now

    anyway, he asked me one time what I liked, any time I had a room in Vegas, I always walked in to a bottle of Single Barrel Jack D, Fiji Water and a 6 pack of coke with a hand written card without asking for it

    • Many fruit baskets
    But the best thing I was offered was a private plane ride to Vegas. I didn’t take them up on it because I’m a California drive in player & I didn’t want to feel pressured to play at a higher level than my current play (at that time). Plus such a comp wouldn’t have been something I would pick for myself.

    I'm a low roller and I often don't bother with the gift giveaways at my locals because I hate waiting in line and it's normally pretty junky stuff. But, I did once get a salad spinner that I use all the time. I do get to feel like a high roller when I treat my family to comped dinners at Andiamo and Hugo's Cellar. Nom nom.

    @Flowers treated me to a comped VGK game in a suite - that was pretty awesome.

    This is all very interesting. I've never received any "gifts" but my gift offers are usually gift or FP and I always opt for the FP. I was really excited about the CET Tuft and Needle mattress/FP with progressive step up offer that was going to happen back in March, but that was obviously cancelled.

    @subafrk I too was EXTREMELY interested in choosing FP over the CET Mattress options in Vegas in March. I am hoping that that opportunity will be revived. It may take that kind of promo to convince my wife to go to Vegas again.

    I was in NOLA Harrah's and while there my host put me in an offer I wasn't even aware of. I got a Movado watch and my play generated andadditional Movado. I have lots of watches I ended up giving one to my GF and the other to my friend who was with me. He has very big wrists and few watches fit him, I said if the watch fits you it's yours, and it was.

    Spirit Mountain had some canvas garden bags once that I liked, had gloves, a few garden tools and an expanding hose inside. Gold Coast and Orleans had good sized insulated hot/cold bags that served a purpose. DH has one in the truck and I've got one in my car. I don't get the good stuff.

    Me too!

    I need to remember to actually use them other than for guests and when I run out of my usual stuff. Otherwise they just sit there until they expire and I have to waste a bunch of time rinsing them all out so they can be recycled.

    Best comp has to be this "Genuine All Flesh Overhanging Belly With Built-In Navel"(tm) designed by Anhauser Busch of St. Louis, Missouri. 5,000 comped long necks. I take it everywhere I go.
