Visit once a quarter? Not likely. I just canceled a trip to Harrahs SoCal.

    I was going to visit Harrahs SoCal because the previous comp offer (March) was good.

    $250 travel reimbursement
    $250 free play

    I put in a little over $10,000 coin in over two days (two 1000TC days)

    I had just gotten a "new" host, who was really trying to get me to come down in June. Even though I pointedly asked her if I needed to come down in Q2, vs. Q3, she said "whenever you want to come down."

    So, I booked a flight and a car for two days in early July. She told me that my offers had "dropped" to $100 travel reimbursement and $50 Free Play. At those amounts I couldn't really justify it and told my host as much and cancelled my trip, since I was getting much better offers in Reno/Tahoe.

    What she told me was "Because you missed visiting us the whole second quarter, we do not have any statistics to show you have played in our property. So, in order to have better offers, please come and visit us."

    I understand that CET only "operates" Harrahs SoCal, but AFAIC (As Far As I'm Concerned), quarterly visits aren't something that I would plan for that property. It's a nice property, but

    1) getting to/from it is a PITA
    2) it's the "only" property that I would game at
    3) I can get to Las Vegas for much less and have a much better time.
     
    Scheduled, but cancellable
    Well, Canada and Massachusetts are closed, back to Lake Tahoe

    I go to SoCal twice a year and get zero offers, other than corp. comp rooms. I went to Reno/Tahoe and New Orleans once and got offers for 2 years. When I got my SoCal survey about my host, I wrote whats the point of having a host if they have no offers to work with.

    So what's the $100/$50 based on then?

    Screw 'em.

    Harrah's SoCal offers are nonexistent for us. Except for free rooms they give us nothing. We only get there maybe once a year because we're from the east coast but you'd think that, after a visit, we 'd get some offers to come back. Never do. It doesn't surprise me that they're treating you so poorly.

    Yep, your much better off going to Vegas. I've hit up Harrahs So Cal more frequently over the last two years but it's only a 90 minute drive. I can only handle two nights there though.
