    So I know you can get your FP at Cosmo without a room, but what about F&B? If I have an offer for $300FP and $300FB, do I just go to the Identity desk and have them activate the FP? If FB is available, but no room, does it just go on my card to be swiped at the restaurant?

    I'm not sure that would work, since you need to charge the F&B to your room to get it credited back.

    If you’re going to claim your Freeplay, have you considered spending 2 nights of your trip at Cosmo? The marketing offer is a package, so you’re giving up a lot by forgoing the room nights and resort credit. You may as well take advantage of all of it.

    I'm already staying at the sky suites, and I don't really want to bother with the check in or feel obligated to play at Cosmo. That said, I'm sure I'll stop in anyways, and was planning on using the FP since I don't need to stay to use it and my stop in play will be plenty to cover the comps. I wasn't sure if the F&B was also like the FP and you didn't need a stay to use it or not. I have plans for a lot of Mlife dining, but because the restaurants are all so hit or miss right now in terms of being open and reservation availability, I thought if I could get the F&B at Cosmo, it may be worth doing just for some expanded dining options. I already have about $150 on my Identity account from previous trips and the COVID promotions they had, which my understanding is I can just have the card swiped at the restaurant to use those, does anyone know if that's correct?

    That's how I've always done my FB credit, but every other strip property requires a stay to use FP/FB, so if I double book a room I just charge it to the room. Since Cosmo doesn't require a stay for FP, I wasn't sure if you can also get F&B?

    If you insert your card at Cosmo for any reason and only play enough to cycle thru Freeplay then you will absolutely kill your numbers and tank future offers. You sure you want to do that for $300 FP?

    I'm going to go play for a while at the property, I get whatever/whenever from Mlife, so I'm not in dire need of offers from Cosmo. I didn't ask if I should do this, I'm fully aware of how things work. I'm not looking to go in and cycle the $300 then leave, but if I'm going to play for a few hours then why wouldn't I? My play will likely more than cover the comps I'll take.

    Does anyone have any insight to the actual question of whether you can tap your F&B at Cosmo without staying?

    You need a room in order to take advantage of the F&B.

    Bummer. On the FP do you know if it needs to be activated at Identity or will it just be on my card?

    I believe it has to be done at the Identity desk

    If you have points from identity then you can just swipe your card and ask to have points to be applied at the restaurants and the gift shop too. But for f&b it’s like others have stated you need to have a room to charge.
