    What is the most "free play" you have been offered? And what level are you on TR? I get $400.00 offers all the time and was mid level diamond, this year and probably next visit I will make seven stars, I have been playing a little stronger, Just curious as to what the offers are to everyone?

    Of course, you know offers have nothing to do with Diamond or 7 Star. They are all based on play.

    But, for what it is worth, Tunica Horseshoe sends me $25 offers... some $10 ones these days.
    Cherokee sends multiple offers. Some overlap enough to be near $1,000 on some days.
    Vegas sends varied offers - usually $200 or so.

    I bet you can tell where we play the most these days.

    Offers are based on play, not tier level. I go to Atlantic City all the time but don't play a lot so my theoretical is low. I am mid-level diamond, also, but usually get $20 free play offers. I once got a $60 free play offer (the most given to me by CZR) and I hit a $4,000 royal with it. Ha Ha F**k you, Caesars!

    $750 and I was pleased to find out the table play is use until you lose. I'm a diamond.

    I turned that into $675 cash last trip

    I was up to $450.00 in free play with them as late as January 2015. This was shortly after they went bankrupt. After bankruptcy my free play fell to $225, So i stopped gambling at total rewards casinos. Then it dropped to $200. Now my corporate offers are like $25 in free play and a room for 2 nights. Even though I can book a week solid using the calendar.

    In most clubs, if you stay away they will toss a little extra to get you back. With TR I stayed away for 2 years and saw my offers drop from 450 to 25 bucks. And like others, I was Diamond...

    When we first got DIAD (had not hard a card with cet previously), we did it with 50/50 slots/vp at Harrahs So-Cal, and two months later, we got $750 a week for a month, and it was bankable, so we banked it and sucked it out as a $2800 rebate on the DIAD loss of $1300.
    After that we never seen offers better than $50 at any location. (and we did earn diamond again on five 1000TC sessions)

    Bankable? Meaning you can combine offers?

    Fwiw .. My highest offer from CET is $250. whats weird is I also have $10 offers as well at the same properties.

    I never ever get any offers via TR website or in the mail which is a bummer. Im low diamond and go to vegas once a month (on average) and i spend/blow 2-3K every time i go. I only play craps and $20 here and there on slots. I wonder how i get on this free play wagon? Dont know what my Theo is, all I know is last year's statement for taxes show that I blew 21k combined at various CET properties nationwide.
    I guess I cant complain, they give me free rooms at any property at any time (excluding Nobu and Cromwell on the weekends).

    Oh I'd get junk offers as well. One offer would be $450 in free play and the website would show the same hotel offer with $0 in free play but $10 in dining credit.

    Mlife does this silliness as well. One offer for Aria that includes $100 in FP + $100 in dining + suite for 2 nights. And another offer for a discounted room and bogo buffet...

    I have been getting $40 offers by email. It is not enough to entice us to come but if we are planning a trip it is a nice addition.

    Do you get any emails? if not you may try calling and making sure you are on the email list with the correct information. You should be getting something.

    @offshoreca yeap, i get emails all the time on 25% off rooms at Caesars and 25% off on show tickets.. Very Odd they send me those.. I get free rooms at Caesars 7 days a week like right now im looking at my TR and every day in month of March April May show comp for Caesars. lol. bad marketing i guess. No complaints I guess! They do give me free Valet, Free Rooms and No resort fee so i guess its worth it.. Like this weekend im staying at Caesars Thur-Sun and its all comped no resort fees but i go to Hotels.com its $227 a day pretty much. with resort fees that would come to about 1k so i guess i have 1k free play if I look at it that way.

    Lmarl72936, You could always charge food and things to your room, then at the end of your stay go in VIP and ask if they dont mind looking at your play, maybe get yourself back on the radar and also comp the things you charged to your room. worth a try. good luck, I'll be back the following weekend.

    Also, what games is everyone playing and how much coin-in? Those statistics would be helpful as well. I am quite curious as well since a DIAD or DITD trip could be on the near horizon.

    @offhsorecca you have a good idea there on the charge everything to room method and talk to host at the end of trip.. I'll try that this weekend.
    @spinette from what I read, your best bet is slot machines and/or video poker to obtain DIAD. I dont really play slots, I did Diamond the hard way through hours of craps.

    I never get the same coin-in at CET joints as I do at other clubs. The machines seem wayyyy too tight every time I try. I normally get around $7-8K a day when I gamble at MGM. Treasure Island, or other friendly slot joints I can rack up $9-$10K a day. CET casinos I was getting around $6K for my offers.

    I was getting $75 in free play and $75 in resort credit on a regular basis.
    As you said, not worth planning a trip around but a nice addition.
    However I call the Flamingo today and asked them to add a free play offer to an existing reservation. No can do!
    I would have to give up a 5 night comped stay to add the free play and then get 2 free nights, and the rest at casino rate.
    No thanks. Do they think we're stupid? Every trip, the reasons for going to Vegas diminish for me.
