    Aria room comp thresholds are 6,000 points for Deluxe room and 10,000 for Tower Suite. What this means is that for a 3 night stay you have to accumlate at least 18,000 or 30,000 points respectively. The good news is that it can all be in one day because their rating is based upon the stay/trip and not the individual day.

    How are points compiled? One point for every $3 coin in. With this in mind, I put the following tables together as a quick reference guide to points.

    Those room comp thresholds seem very high. If I read it correctly, Aria requires $18,000 coin in per night putting your theo requirement at $1800 per night which is outrageous just for a deluxe room. I get three nights in a deluxe room with FP and resort credit for less than $18,000 coin-in for the whole trip.

    I'd have to agree. However the assumption of 10% of theo is high too. I think it's closer to 8% depending on the type of machines you are playing.

    I believe 18000 accumulated for 3 nights. 6000 per nights or all 18000 in one night.

    I've seen maybe a half-dozen quotes from Aria hosts regarding the amount of play required for a standard room comp, and they're always way high.

    Standard rooms at Aria still aren't that expensive.

    I average about $4,000 coin in a day at MGM properties, that's 1,333 base points, and I can get a room at Aria under Corporate offers, even Superbowl weekend. I dropped off Aria's property-specific list because I haven't stayed or played there in a couple of years.

    4 nights at MGM Grand in 2016 (5 actually, I had one stay which was 1 night and no play, but let's say they throw that out like the score from the East German judge).

    So that's $3,399 coin-in, 1,133 base points a night average ($2,719 / 906 if you count the no play stay). I can still get a room at Aria Superbowl weekend:

    The host has full transgression over this. I was merely posting the 'RULES'.

    A good example of what the host can do is that I frequently go for 4 or 5 nights and I'm always accommodated, even though I don't always his even the Deluxe Room threshold. On my last trip I didn't even come close because I got sick and had little desire to gamble or drink :)

    Interesting to know, they must have tightened up a lot this year. Last year I had several comp stay at Aria for quite a bit less play/coin-in and most of it on video poker.

    No offers so far this year from them :(

    A lot of the newer slots are 10 points per dollar.

    Do they base it on coin in or points?

    I have that same comp for my coming trip. A big step down from what I used to get.

    This is my coin-in for my last 5 stays at Aria, from oldest to most recent:

    $24,967
    $13,520
    $40,762
    $24,661
    $23,786

    My last offer was 3 nights in a corner suite, including food and beverage, $400 resort credit and $250 freeplay.

    Now they dropped me to 3 nights, $100 resort credit and $175 freeplay... :mad:

    My post was from January, so it would have been based on a pretty old offer. I've dropped my play at MLife significantly since then, but had actually started doing that before I got the offer I mentioned. It just takes them a while to catch up.

    It would seem pretty easy to draw a straight line between your $40k coin in trip getting you the good offer you mentioned and the $23k/$24k trips getting you the worse offer, especially if those last 2 trips fell both fell within a single period MLife used to calculate the offer. But you haven't said how many nights your trips are, or what the coin in represents (slots vs VP). If it was all slots, and those last 2 trips were either 3 or 4 nights, I'd say your latest offer is substandard or at least an indication that MLife is tightening up. If your trips were 5 nights, then it's a more reasonable offer.

    Wow what a handy reference. Thank you for posting. Have you one for any of the other casinos?

    Indeed. As someone who prefers to stay there, I've found that there's often better value in paying for the room and then having F&B comped off the back end, as opposed to having them comp the room upfront but then not be willing to take care of any F&B, at least on trips where my play is on the lower end of their spectrum (a couple/few hours each per day, give or take, of $1 VP and black-chip table games). That is, of course, if you're just looking for a regular room. It's a much better deal when I can get them to comp a Corner Suite or above.

    Play was 100% slots. All trips were 1 or 2 nights except the last one, which was 3 nights.

    Previous trips were always 3 nights, $250 freeplay, $200 resort credit.

    I feel kinda slighted by this new offer, but I was probably over comped last stay.

    It does feel a little chintzy, probably in comparison to your previous offer and you're probably right that that one was high.

    $24k coin in is about $2,400 in theo, maybe a little less. My feeling is that MLife comps a little less anyway, maybe 25% of theo instead of closer to 30%.

    So $600-ish of comp value on $2,400 theo. 3 nights room at $100-ish, $175 FP and $100 RC gets you to $575 in comp value.

    Something doesn't seem right. I play and stay mainly at the Aria and sometimes the Bellagio. All I get is standard comp rooms at those two properties. But in the offers pages I can get a comp suite at the MGM and Monte Carlo where I rarely play at.....strange

    Putting aside the fact that the Mlife offers page is perpetually broken, this actually is not surprising. You generally get property-specific offers, but then also Mlife-wide offers that scale up or down depending on the level of the property. I don't feel like wading through the mess of AARP rates and ticket discounts that are clogging up my offers page at the moment, but as someone who stays almost exclusively at Aria, with occasional jaunts to Bellagio or Mandalay Bay, I've found the same thing.

    Really the best thing to do is call them. Their website isn't as useless as Cosmo's, but it's close.

    I made the mistake of taking MLife charter out of Raleigh to the Borgata last October and it hosed my rating - one can only hope temporarily. It hosed my rating because Mlife considered it a 3 day trip even though it was Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. I also was not enamored by the crowd there on a weekend. It was jammed packed with people who drove in for the day.

    I won't make this mistake again. I will take Harrah's charters for my in-between Vegas trips gambling fixes.

    Are you saying that it screwed up your rating with mlife as a whole? At all casinos?

    I have an Mlife casino nearby and give them hardly any play, but my vegas offers at bellagio still remain decent. I do play very well when at bellagio, so i always assume rating is property specific.

    To be fair, that is always how AC is. It's a weekend destination and not a place that many people go for an extended trip. If you think Borgata was bad, you should see the Boardwalk properties -- most of those casinos subsidize bus trips from NYC and other surrounding areas, such that it's essentially free to get down there for the day. When you combine that, with the limited inventory and the popularity of the beach, the prices get ludicrous on the weekends (even at the lower-end places), and most people aren't willing to pay for that.

    I've also learned from talking to other Aria patrons that the playing field is not level. I know of one guest who gets Sky Suite and Limo - and only goes there once a year and whose coin-in is far less than mine. Why you ask? Just like nightclubs who let in the hotties while the mortals wait in line - she's smoking hot and they must want her there????
