    Wasilla, I just received my 2018 report from SP for tax purposes, looks like i had 75k coin in for 3 trips, probably 17-18 days total, and all of those were comped. I normally get $40 FP and $100 FB credit prior to arrival, but charge anywhere between $300-400 in food to my room during the trip, and it is comped on the back end. Most casinos bore me in a couple hours, but i can sit at island bar at SP for hours on end, it's just a different atmosphere than anywhere else in Vegas.

    This may have been noted elsewhere but if you pull your card for whatever reason and reinsert, the countdown timer to the next point earned is the same. If I have earned 3 points and am 1/2 way to the 4th, but pull the card and head to a similar machine (vp for me) the counter is still halfway to my next point earned although the points earned is not 3 for the day but shows 0. Not a big deal but a fair deal.
    Hint: at the start of play for that day I always call up the account before play and just take a picture with my phone for later reference. Easier than trying to remember what I wrote on the scrap of paper I lost. :eek:
    Enjoying the report also.
     
    Hopefully, finally !!!

    Actually, Raspberry Beret is definitely on the daily 4Q playlist, and we are 90% sure that 1999 is also (fitting).

    Thanks cunnigia.
    Great plan Aye Dee.
    I learn a lot from FABismonte and zignerlv posts and agree with 3Of Diamonds. Thanks for contributing to this thread.
    gutshot, if you haven't made it out of China yet, I have been thinking about you. Stay well
    If you are waiting for your LVA coupon book, it is probably because they are out. I went there on Monday and they said that they are reprinting and expect new books on Friday. It is a long trip by public transport from DT. I'll call before I go again.
    Otherwise, I think that I'm done with what I wanted to do with his thread. I'm in Vegas now and will probably wait for a TR until I'm home.
    Thanks for those who followed.

    Looking forwards to your report, @wasilla .
    And I had to double check this thread, but apparently South Point gives a point per vp dollar, so you could probably rack em up there.
     
    Had to book it, comped Terrace..

    @wasilla, given your statement I will stop adding substantive info on this thread but look forward to your next outstanding trip report.

    I think that you have a wealth of knowledge which you frequently share and hope you contribute as you see fit. I started this thread a long time ago with the intention of later including any changes to my comped offers if the thread wasn't closed yet. Since I've done all that now, I don't think that I have anything left to contribute to it. You however....
