    Just popped in my account, my last round of offers were:
    • $100 Dining & cocktails on us
    • $375 Identity Play
    • 2 Complimentary nights
    Which all seems right when looking at my coin-in.

    My next batch of offers have me earning one extra night for free! Yeah! But all they did was move the math away from my Free Play and into that extra nights stay
    • $100 Dining & cocktails on us
    • $150 Identity Play
    • 3 Complimentary nights
    Every comp stay I have ever booked at Cosmo was always 2 nights.

    I only ever need 2 nights, I always split my trip between clubs. 2 nights at one and 2 nights at another.

    I understand how offers work. Rack on the rooms is about $200. 2 night is $400 + $475 upfront = $875 in comps.

    New offer has 3 nights $600 + $250 up front = $850

    I'm not losing anything in the math. I'm just now stuck with an offer, for me, is shitter than before based on the way I play.

    I love everything Cosmo, except for the way they create their offers. If I look at my Mlife offers, I probably have a dozen for each casino. All with the math split up, as they attempt to see what tickles my butthole.

    Mandalay Bay, King Suite Strip view 2 nights + $250 Dining + $100 Free Play. OR Basic suite there + $350 + $100 OR $350 Dining and the King Suite OR, you get my point.

    Same with Total Rewards, More free play or more reward credits, its up to me which offer code I book. Do I want the fancy show tickets and less in resort credit? Or more resort credit and no show? Do I want a free big screen TV and no free play? Or piss on the TV and get the cash equal to it in FP.

    Cosmo has always been "a" offer for me. Outside of random things likes discounts.

    Anyone here get a stack of offers to choose from there? Like the other clubs do in town?

    This happens to me too...
    I have an amazing host I adore so I probably wouldn’t switch but it’s a tough pill to swallow to see your free play go down, when you’ve been more than covering your offers.

    I was up to 525/200 and recently I was dumped down to 275/200 for March and April.

    Especially, after I had my biggest cash loss and strongest trip Theo (about 10k) I was thinking the offers would go up :/

    Mine was about the same. I've been hovering around $175 FP/$100 Food and Bev and 3 free nights in terrace one bedroom. The offer for March and April is now 4 free nights worth NO FP and no FB credit. This is an outlier though All other offers since October have been 3 nights with FP and FB. Wondering if it's just the time of the year?

    Have you tried reaching out to your host to see if they can change it?

    My offer also dropped on the most recent one. The nights and dining remained the same, but free play was cut by about 40-45%

    Sounds like a strategic move to me. Would be interested in hearing from other Cosmo regulars to see how widespread this is.

    A lot of them
    Can’t speak for anyone else but as for me my latest offer is well above other offers especially in free play. The one thing I do that may be different is when I stay at Cosmo I only gamble exclusively there. I also put a lot of time in on the slots everyday. I don’t know for sure but I think time playing is something that Cosmo takes into consideration when making offers.

    My current FP offer has also dropped, but only by 16%. Dining and room still the same. Asked host if she could extend the previous offer back before the new one came out - still waiting and hoping. Wish they allowed a longer time on the offers since we are coming from the Atlantic coast. Got another trip on the books as fast as we could. Sheesh lol!

    @Cosmo_Slot_Vice_President said in the other cosmo thread going that they go off of theo. I don't think ToD factors in for them but may be wrong.

    My latest offer just released dropped, too. 4 nights with $150/$50 (fp/food) down to 4 nights with $50/$25. The previous offers were my best based off my best trip in October. Haven't played since.

    Pool season coming up so less need to try to lure gamblers so offers go down a little

    Also the same as everyone else here. Offer for Dec - April was $275 FP / $100 RC / 4 nights. Offer that came out today for April - June is $150 FP / $100 RC / 4 nights. Haven't been in Vegas between those two offers so the change is puzzling.

    My offers never seem to specify the type of room but so far (in our first two trips) my host has put us in a fountain view studio.

    Also like @momnkid we live on the east coast so it's not like we can just pop in all the time. We've been planning a trip for late May for a while so tonight I've also asked the host about why the drop in FP. While this won't affect our next trip it's the first "huh?" we've experience with Cosmo and it looks like everyone else seems surprised too.

    For us, CET has a big advantage in having a casino in Windsor but the offers were so much better at Cosmo we had decided to give them all our business this year. With this drop, the gap between CET and Cosmo is much smaller and the other advantages of CET (variety of locations, etc) start to look better again. My biggest beef with CET was the lack of FP (everything else was good) so this really caught my eye and I hope it's not a trend.

    I think I've seen MLife taking the same approach over the last year - capping the FP & RC amounts while extending more nights and higher room types.

    My current Cosmo offer came out the end of December and runs through May 15.

    Kevin said FP amounts are based on theo and I think I've seen that - after a longer stay, the following offer usually has more FP. But I think there might be some seasonality/market conditions involved also. My play level per night is pretty steady, so my offers always have the same number of nights and room type.

    Can I ask the people who just got new offers - when did your old one expire? Did the new one come in before the old one expired, and by how much? I had a 10 or 12 day gap between expiration and a new one in December and it kinda affected my planning.

    I've only ever had one offer at a time from Cosmo, but a new one used to come out well before the previous one expired.

    My offers are right up next to each other @Chuck

    The other thing I noticed last night was that the Sterling benefits no longer include 1 complimentary companion night per year:

    I'm not on glue right? That used to exist? I'm positive I used my comp companion room for my father-in-law last December when I was Sterling.
