    I think the generosity of nights also has to do with 2 other things:

    - geography. The further away you live, the more nights they're willing to throw your way to convince you to make the longer trip there (and thus offset the longer airfare a bit)

    - the desire to keep you on their resort for a whole Vegas trip. A lot of their recent investments in restaurants (like Block 16) prove that they really want to keep people there as much as possible. They throw you a free night, you order drinks/go to their restaurants/gamble, they're still making money off most people.

    fwiw, my offers went back to the previous levels. Must just have been the popular March/April time frame.

    I did get new offers. I lost all of them, the free play came back the same and then the free room offer came back with a lot more comp nights available.

    I had one that would expire soon and two new ones have popped up but they only go out to July. This is the only, let me emphasize only, time I wish they were like CET and would extend the calendar.

    For the first time ever I just got a new offer (good May - Sept) while I currently have a trip booked in June. In the past, it seemed to stops future offers if I had a reservation booked. Once my trip was over the normal offers would start up again.

    I received an offer Monday for 3 nights through August. When I went to book two nights in July which showed availability on the calendar it came up 9,999.00 ouch!

    I just tried to use my offer and it’s showing nothing available through October? WTF? I forgot to sign in the first time and there was plenty of rooms if I’m paying. I wanted to switch my play, but damn. I was just told to book for July and there’s nothing. Guess I’ll have to stay at Palazzo or PHO. What’s the point of them sending new offers if you can’t use them? Anyone else have that issue?

    Would it make a difference if I booked through my host? I didn’t do that initially because I haven’t stayed there in a long time. I didn’t want to bother her.

    Absolutely go to your host. I had that happen before but it was no problem for the host to book me. That 3 reel Wonka is waiting for you...

    I think something with the website is hosed. I just tried to see if I could book my latest offer for Labor Day weekend, and when I select the offer it just takes me to a calendar that lists regular room rates. There’s not a single day that shows up as COMP (nor are any of the days blacked out).

    Count me in the group of people seeing worse offers, and I’m annoyed because when we stayed there in March we played more than we ever had. (We did 90% of our 2018 coin-in, which was over 8 nights, in 4). Previous offers had been 4 free nights and nothing else, ranging from just a city room to a terrace 1 bedroom on our most recent trip. Both of my current offers are for a mere 2 nights. They did throw in $25 FP and $50 meal credit, big whoop...that’s not nearly as valuable as 2 nights, even if the comp was going to be limited to the lowest level room. I know opinions vary on which is preferable but we really prefer more nights. This upcoming trip is just a 4-nighter and we were looking forward to staying only at Cosmo.

    I’m 0-for-3 on booking Sterling/Gold nights or companion nights (they’re always blacked out when I call), so while I will ask if I can use my Gold nights for our next trip I’m not optimistic.

    Here’s the ironic thing. Over the past couple of years, I have really shortplayed NYNY due to double-bookings, etc. And my offers from them remain 4 nights, $75 FP, $100 RC...the only difference is I used to qualify for spa suites and now it’s just a regular room. Now, obviously Cosmo is significantly nicer so I’m not arguing that the offers should be exactly the same, but it’s annoying to see the juxtaposition of “play more at Cosmo and get significantly less, play less at NYNY and get about the same.”

    My offer thru the middle of July is showing 9,999.00 for 7/1-7/15. I guess it's because of the holiday? I think they should consider much longer dates on the offers for those on the East Coast. Mine are each for a month and I realllly want to get Sept/Oct on the books so I can obsess about it.

    I just saw a new offer online.

    I went from this:
    PLAY YOUR WAY
    Valid Apr 4, 2019 - Aug 14, 2019
    • $175 Identity Play
    • 3 Complimentary nights
    • $50 Dining & cocktails on us
    And the new offer is:

    WORK THE ROOM
    Valid Nov 8, 2018 - Nov 7, 2019
    • Comp Night – A hotel room night on us, for you
    I'd like to think those Angered Gods did not just take away 2 comped nights and $225 in free play and dining just for sport.

    It is also strange that I have no offers from Aug 15th - Nov 7th. My last stay was a month ago, and I played what I always play.

    If I magically fell to a single night and nothing else, on my $10K+ coin a day, all slots, I'm going to be sad. Hoping there is an in between offer that will post in the next month or so.

    It might just be a website issue because same happened to me so I decided to call the main number and they booked it with no problem.

    Looks like the single comp is for Gold status. I have the same thing on mine below my offer with FP.

    I thought the same so wrote to my host that I was given for my match play offer. She wrote to me Saturday saying the earliest she would get back to me was Saturday and the latest on Tuesday. When I didn't hear back I sent an email asking if we were good to go. ( I was booking my two gold comps for June 8-9 and trying to get July 3-4...fat chance I know) She responded that we are good to go and verified that I wanted terrace studio premium view.

    She then wrote to let me know i would receive an email confirmation last night but received nothing.

    The website overhaul still seems to have some bugs. My own host admitted it was wonky. I'd send your host a message, or call whatever # is listed on the offer, they're always very helpful with booking too.

    I like to book early too. When I know I'll be there at a time that didn't have an offer yet I just book a room on my own for the date I want online, or email my host and ask that she do it. For my most recent stay I need 5 nights, but I didn't have any offer for May available yet. I sent a message about the dates and she was able to book 3 comp nights and then booked the other nights at the casino rate. When my May offer was finally showing online she simply converted 3 nights to the slot tournament offer, and then booked the other 2 nights as Gold nights. It guaranteed I'd have the room I wanted far enough out to satisfy my need to plan, and it still gets covered in the end anyways.

    Work The Room etc aren't really offers IMO. I always have around 5 of those available at any given time (1 free night, 30% off 3 nights with F&B credits, etc. They're usually good for a specific time frame and up to a year in some cases) your other actual offers follow which include multiple nights with FP and F&B will eventually come.

    I said all that and should have added "I always book thru the host". She will keep an eye out for an offer so I don't have to. And if there's a better offer that will expire before I make it out there, she works her magic and that's the offer I'll get. I only look online for the fun of it lol.

    Work The Room is one of your tier-based nights. If you're Gold you should see two of them.
