    What type of coin-in on slots would be required to get Teaser offers from either of these properties in Vegas?

    In a week I will be at MB for 5 nights for a total of $75 plus resort fees. I last gambled there in 2018 and dropped a couple hundred total at all MGM properties. They seem to send offers after July hoping to get people booked at the end of the year and into the new year. I haven't gotten an email with a great offer in a few months, but was getting them every week for the last three months of 2019.

    The most recent offer I saw had some decent rates plus between $50 and $100 F&B credit. Can't remember if it was per night or not.

    $75 + resort fees is a tremendous deal for 5 nights considering the play dates back to 2018. Did you literally play at every MGM property? Also was your play slot play or table games. Not that it matters but I'm trying to learn the best route into gaining the offers. Especially considering you are about to reap the rewards next week.

    Now that I think about it, I played next to nothing while I was there. Maybe $5 at Aria and the rest of my cash between MB and Luxor. At MB I lost $30 between a Haywire machine and a Jurassic Park 4d machine. At Luxor I made money on the slots on the casino floor because of a $50 MyVegas freeplay but probably lost $100 total sitting at the Aurora bar. My girlfriend was also with me and I think came close to breaking even as well. The only time we really put coin in was at the bar in the evening. To say we barely played would be an understatement. I earned 200 total points on the slot cards between the two of us. We stayed at Luxor in 18 and only added the self park fees to the room. Every meal we had was paid for on my credit card.

    It NEVER FAILS that when I go to Vegas within a month of coming back home I will get email offers from MLife to book rooms at a significant discount. Usually it is a couple comp nights at Park, Luxor, or Excalibur with discounted rates elsewhere. This goes on for a couple months, then the offers get more normal until around October when their marketing department ramps things up and starts sending out the emails again for the free rooms. This time I was on the fence about where to stay as I was being offered 4 nights at EX, 3 at Luxor, or 1 or 2 at MB and 2 at Park. Then one day the week before Thanksgiving I click on the email link and put in my dates and suddenly MB is 3 comp nights and next to nothing the 4th and 5th night. Booked immediately. (By end of December they were showing $210 a night with zero comp nights available)

    I only go to Vegas on Sunday and usually return Thursdays, this time on a Friday. I have never played enough anywhere to even earn a free buffet. Even when I went to Vegas once with a larger bankroll I wound up somehow spending almost all of it on a stripper that I probably would have married that night and I still didn't play that trip. I also noticed that even though my Mlife account had my proper email that many times the emails I get from MGM contain offers that DO NOT APPEAR if I log in to my MLife account. When I get good offer emails I save those and if you click through the emails you get the better offers that you will not see on your Mlife account offers. I guess what I am trying to say is that you need to make sure that the MLife emails are not going n to spam and that you haven't opted out. If you are a really low roller those emails are what gets you the great rates and free rates from the marketing department. Also, you need to be willing to go during the week when things are slower there and at slow times as well. For example, end of February, right after new year, After holidays, or between Thanksgiving and Christmas. They're not rewarding me for play, they're trying to earn revenue for the hotel on off times and hoping I leave money at their establishments.

    Hope that helps a little as to the way MGM works.

    For CET I've never gotten a comp room offer but they frequently (and just sent one two days back) about a semi annual sale or certain dates. Paris as low as $50 a night, with other properties at a discount and as low as $25 a night.
    I'm signed up with the Wynn players club via email as I have neer set foot on the property. I get offers about once a month that have rooms at a discount down to about $100 a night.
    I try to put coin through Palace Station every trip and have never even gotten an offer from them that wasn't higher rates than any strip casino.
    Guess what I am saying is that you NEED to be on their email list if you don't play all that much.
