    I appreciate the gesture. Stations will be getting some of my business next trip.

    Agree. Very nice move and also how they have been treating their employees during this crisis. I was already a fan and now even more so.

    That is really good to hear. I've always been biased to the Fertittas as a long time UFC fan.

    Good to see they're really looking after their people.

    Everyone here knows I'm not a Stations fan, being no-mailed and all...

    But I applaud Stations for stepping up during this crisis. They extended wages and benefits to all full-time workers to the end of April. And when they had to shut down the casinos, they moved some part timers (around 700 I think) to full time so they could get wages and benefits. Well done!:nworthy:

    I bet MLife will be the last one to extend status, but good to see Stations stepping up here. Hopefully we'll see more and more companies do this.

    I wish Boyd would follow Stations lead. Sigh. Their communication wasn't clear to me...are they pausing expiration only until the casinos open again? Or will that be extended? I'm ok until end of July if they hold onto their 6 month expiration, but I just don't know if I'll be ready to "casino" again by then!

    Whatever status and points you had on 17 March 2020 with Stations are guaranteed to no earlier than 1 January 2021.

    All of the casinos need to give us an extension on tier credits and points.
    I always try my best to make it back within 6 months, for example my last trip of the year is usually in October and then I come in back in March to stay within 6 months so I don't lose anything.
    of course this year I had to cancel my March trip and probably my may 1st trip.
    One thing that comes to mind I have approximately $200 in food comps at 4Q. I don't know where I stand on that.
    I also had quite a bit built up at D/GG, as well as Boyds and ELCO.

    Station is now paying their team members through at least May 15. As far as being a guest there goes it will give me more time to get my President status back by December 31

    I feel your pain. As a high-risk person and after all of the research I've done - I may not see Mecca for a couple of years. I currently have about $1000 in comps at D/GG and I've got over a hundred at Plaza plus my $200 dining reward at Oscars. I've got stuff all over the place, but the large amounts I've mentioned are my primary concern. I will be so pissed/disappointed/heartbroken if I have to leave that all to expire.

    :-( But I entirely understand that your well-being is the most important. Hoping that Vegas will still be Vegas when you return, and that the places you value most will remember and value you in kind.

    Agree. If comps weren't extended say for a year or two, one thing that a D/GG could do, especially for highly-valued customers like you (as reflected in your earned comps), is to effectively turn the comps into free play and add that to whatever you will return to Vegas, whether that's a year, or two, from now. It's not the same thing as the comps but in some respects, might be more valuable as it is close to cash and you're likely RFB anyway.

    Great in theory, but unfortunately I am no longer a great customer. I once was and earned that $ rather quickly and there it has sat for a number of years. I planned to gift it to my hubs to use at Circa (hopefully) for a spa day. :cry:He would've been thrilled to death. I just hate setting money on fire. I may have to enlist the help of a friend to put a point or two on my card. Fingers crossed that everyone that can go doesn't get bombarded with such requests. :eek:

    I think that is the best idea-- having someone play on your card for a few bucks.

    I didn't notice any change in mine, but most likely they haven't done anything yet and are just letting people know.
