Nothing here...staying at a CET property this summer because of it.
I have a hotel specific offer from NYNY and Aria. Still waiting for corporate offers. When I book the hotel offer now, will it effect any upcoming offers? Or will I still get the corporate offers?
I've never seen booking an offer have any effect on receiving additional offers. When I have an MLife offer booked, either property-specific or Corporate, I continue to receive the ones I expect to get.
Still no Mlife Offers for me either (apart from my MC which i already booked)...
Hope they offer something soon, as i will book the last 5 nights of our trip at a CET hotel, which means spending our bankroll there...
This is nuts. I don't currently have any free nights. Usually there is always an Aria offer there for 2 free nights with FP and RC - last stay was in Sept last year and I doubled my usual play so I should not have fallen off the radar. A stupid offer from Aria for special rates appeared awhile ago and had to be booked by Feb 15 (really? I've been comped the past 3 years at Aria never got a special rates offer before). Anyway, log on today excited since that one should have expired but what has replaced it? Same offer for rates but must be booked by March 15. No idea what is going on but I better see a better offer soon (or a corporate offer since last one expired Jan 31) or I'll be staying at Cosmo for my next trip as there offers are still coming like clockwork. I don't want to book my flight until I have the rooms figured out.
Same here, my offers have dropped right off (I used to get 2-3 nights at Bellagio, including some weekends) and no corporate offer atm. This despite the fact that I am at the highest level ever with them and most of it from gaming. I may need to call them but it sounds like I'm not the only one having this issue. Will wait and see how my just completed trip affects things.
Has anyone called VIP services yet to see whats up?
Although my 8th Vegas trip (in about 4 years...) is coming up here soon, I'm still quite a n00b on the comps/offers front as I only really started signing up for players' cards and doing any 'real' gambling in the last two or three trips. To my knowledge, I've never received - via mail or online - corporate offers from MLife. I've only ever had property-specific ones, and some of those don't even make sense. For instance, I've probably dropped $20 at MGM after Ka and before grabbing a bit of food there at the Tap place, yet somehow have consistently been getting 2-3 comp nights in a Grand Tower King with at least $50 each in FP/RC for the last 6-8 months now. Is there something I'm not "doing" that would get some corporate offers generated for me? I honestly wouldn't mind giving Mandalay/Delano a shot since we don't usually hit the south end much, and MGM Grand is just too huge/not my style.
They're definitely slow in getting their Winter Corporate offer out. They just reported their 4Q financial results and they weren't stellar, so that may have something to do with the delay. They may be being extra number crunchy on this next round. It's pretty sloppy to not have the next round ready when one expires.
Of course not we'd rather rant about it online
It really makes me have second thoughts about going to Vegas and spending all of that money. I do not play for comps. Rooms are a definite enticement though. I already have my flights booked. If it wasn't for that, I may do something else all together. Thinking about doing a Disney cruise next year and skipping Vegas for a year.
FYI my last offer was about a month late, even though other Mlife people had their offers sooner. For my current spring trip, normally I get offers in mid-november. This trip? My offers didn't come out till mid-december.
In your shoes, I'd almost book now at Cosmo, and see what else comes down the pike. Kevin Sweet (Cosmo) did a GREAT job on his marketing promo, and Cosmo books up. You can always cancel, but you can't book an offer that has filled up.
I only have one Monte Carlo specific offer (even though I haven't stayed there in years - but it used to be my home base). I typically have comp offers from NYNY and Luxor and the corporate offer - heading there in a few weeks so guess I'll stay at CET.
Struck out on this. My current offer with Cosmo only goes until June 14 and my trip isn't until the beginning of August. She said the most they could extend was 30 days so I'll have to wait for the next one. Just hate booking the flights without the room secured. Grrr. That is the only good thing about MLIFE the offers were usually a good 6 months in advance.
Add me to the list as well. What I find strange is that in place of my Corporate offers I have this one:
Your Exclusive Tier Discount!
May 23 - Dec 31, 2020
I always have 3 nights comped in the corp offers and usually its 100 in free play and 100 in resort. I was pissed when I just saw the above and I assumed I fell down to just discounts by mistake.
Speaking of which, how can I book a tier discount on 12/21/2020? How do they even know if I'd be Platinum over 3 years from now?
I'm just showing discounts too, except an old Monte Carlo straggler offer.
I read some recaps of a casino conference last year, and all the casinos were trying to "put the genie" back in the bottle on comps. Previously, people came to Vegas and then were happy if comps came after. Now, lots of people (myself included) won't even go to Vegas WITHOUT the comps.
I have experienced MUCH longer delays in my offers, and I'm seeing others experience this as well. I do wonder if they're trying to play "uncle" with people and see who will flinch first, and book a cruddy discount/or lesser offer.
Again, I had this happen for my spring offer. My mlife homebase delayed a month longer than usual and kept pushing an offer that was worse than anything ive had in the past. I sat tight, but even I was freaking out a bit, as it was so far past their usual release date.
I DID finally get a great offer, but it was definitely after sweating bullets. I'm kind of thinking this might be the trend for 2017..."make em' sweat" in possibly delaying offers. Key word though is delay, not cancel
All my comp offers disappeared a couple weeks ago, including a corporate offer. However, if you cal VIP services they will still see the comp offers and can book them for you.
Well, I could not wait and took the property offer. Better anything then nothing. When it comes closer to the trip, maybe I give them a call. To see if they have something better.
Same here. I have a MC offer valid until end of May, but no corporate offer yet. This is the first time in several years that I haven`t had at least 1 corporate offer waiting for me. Next trip isn`t until August so I can wait it out, but its frustrating if they are just playing games. I play where I stay so if I end up at Caesars or TI, they will get the bulk of my Bankroll.
I am happy to see that I am not the only one that doesn't have offers comparative to those of the past. I'll keep patiently waiting to see if anything better comes up before our trip in May. Right now I have the same Tier Discount offer as others have and no free nights.
