    Well everyone has opinions on who offers the best comps from BConnected to MLIFE to Total Rewards to Identity the list keeps going and going.
    The question is... Who offers the worst?
    Personally I have gotten good comps from All that I mentioned and prob more at one point in recent history.
    The worst...To me that is... The winner is: Marquee (Tropicana and the M Resort).

    The Hard Rock in Tampa/soon to be AC and LV...It's absolutely laughable the shit comp system they have...They do however have great giveaways. Last week my dad got me a NutriBullet one day, then a bottle of Belvedere the next ...
     
    Reno to Las Vegas...and other places in between..

    Here's the thing about CET...in some instances, they offer phenomenal comps, considering my moderate level of play (steady and consistent, but only with green chips). In other cases, the rates are preposterous. My Vegas and NOLA rates are usually excellent. My Atlantic City rates? Ya gotta be kidding. They ask like 400 a night, with my only comps/cheap rates falling on like Tuesdays in December. So here I am cashing in SWA points for comped flights to NOLA and Vegas, far more desirable destinations, rather than paying through the nose for transportation and lodging in a crummy place like AC.

    I went to AC in March and stayed free via comp @ Harrahs. I've never ever paid for a CET room in Vegas and I go on average once a month (yea maybe i have a problem, i hear ya but my mortgage and all my bills are paid :D so then again maybe not) What stinks is that Im going to NOLA
    in Sept and Harrahs wants to charge me $185 for Sat night, $109 for Sunday night and $85 for each day after that :cry:For some reason I cant get the comps for NOLA

    It's tough to say because it vacillates so much based on market conditions and the way you use those comps.

    I was for some strange reason a golden child for a year with TR, I was getting basically unlimited nights to the point that I booked 5 full 5 night trips all comped. And this was with pretty minimal play. Now I'm cut off, just like that...I'm looking at basically a few dollars off full rack rate when I go to the TR website.

    Mlife was the same, in the lean casino years (2011-15) I was getting routine 3-4 night offers with RC and FP based on sometimes as little as 5K coin in per trip. It didn't seem to matter how much I played, the comps were there. Now since occupancy numbers are up all over the strip I'm a leper in Mlife's eyes. I get reduced rate emails from Aria but Mlife in general is done with me.

    Those two I can understand though from a diminishing play (on my part) standpoint. I guess the "worst" program I'm dealing with now is Grazie. I routinely throw a few hundie in the slots there every trip trying to at least get a teaser offer out of them...they don't even know I exist. They seem to be more mid-high roller oriented.

    In my opinion Station is the worst of the major rewards clubs. The free play and resort credit comps (in my experience) are far less than other clubs and they only give me rooms at the casino I previously gave play so I can't try a different hotel without making a special request from a host.

    Yup same for us. We absolutely love Palms but since Stations took them over we are nobody to them. Last march My GF went platinum in 4 days play and I almost did as well.

    What are our offers? Nothing

    Well I get an offer yesterday for a 2 night comp and a 100K slot tourney on my birthday in Nov. Well better than nothing I think. This morning I get an email that says "oops, we sent you that offer by mistake"

    Seriously Stations? :bang: We will be looking elsewhere for a new home, sure will miss Palms though.

    I personally think Cosmo's Identity is the best rewards program out there! I've reached Gold status and it's great. Considering the rooms, food, and overall look of the casino is top notch in my opinion, it's a great palace to focus your play at.

    I got the same offer and retraction. I immediately removed myself from the Stations email list. No big loss, I wasn't that impressed by Palms the one time I stayed anyway.

    I wonder how Station figures out their comps. From reading above they aren't treating some of their long timers very well. They are absolutely flooding me with free rooms and other offers for GVR, RR, & Palms. It makes no sense as to why I'm getting so many. I really haven't gambled that much at any of their big 3.

    I got the same offer, followed by an email saying that it was a mistake.
    The best part is I have never set foot in a Station Casino.

    I have to agree with my fellow posters that Stations is the worst with comps and mailers. And if you happen to win, then the mailer disappears. Their tag line "We Love Locals" omits the second part. The real tag line is "We Love Locals who loose."

    The Palms used to be a great place to play. No more.

    I honestly think Harrah lake Tahoe offers the worst comps...I've played there quite a few times doing 1000Tc in a day and I CAN NOT get free rooms...sure they SEND me the offers but when I call to book the rooms, it's always "sorry, sold out"
    It's the only place I've seen a lot of $100 video poker machines...I think it's honestly their hardest place to get free weekend rooms

    I love this question. For me, hands down, it is the GOLDEN NUGGET Downtown Las Vegas. You can drop a fortune and get very very little.

    Yes, they are bad. You almost have to give blood to get a food comp. Ugh.

    Yeah, but also, aren't you the guy who "stiffed CET (zero played) after earning $2500 in FP?"

    I have no problem getting comp rooms at Tahoe.
     
    Scheduled, but cancellable
    Well, Canada and Massachusetts are closed, back to Lake Tahoe

    This is the strange thing. We have gotten a min 3 night comp each for years. We stay a min of 7 nights but usually 10. The way I always have done it is to call and book the comps then inquire about the days we need after comp. Every single time the booking person would comp the additional night as well, sometimes would include a dinner or a room upgrade etc.

    Last trip was a bit different, I made the call and got offered casino rate for the extra days and no smoking room guarantee. The hell with this I said and booked the rest of the trip at GC on comps.

    4 nights at Palms and nothing, 4 nights at GC and barely anything. I will admit this was a very successful trip though we both came home up and not down for a change.

    I think that shouldn't matter though as we both had massive coin in.

    Station Casinos are pretty bad on comps. I play there for several hours on 2 separate days every trip (VP and tables), and I get nothing from them. Used to receive free room and play offers all the time.
