    Hello,

    Anyone attending the November Grazie Gifts 2018? I haven't been to one in probably 5 years and I've read it's getting less desirable. Wasn't there a problem with the gift cards being mailed late last year? Anyway, we're trying to see if it's worth it since we have about 232,000 points. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    I’ve attended the last few years. The event itself is getting to be more of a quick stop in, no photo booth or gifts on arrival, just a coffee station located at the back....and if I recall correctly, I don’t think they even had the expensive car display last time. My biggest beef was that they tout the event over and above as a perk, but your offers take a substantial hit...about what your points are worth to redeem, to be able to attend. In my case they dropped my freeplay by $375 and my food by $50 and blacked out the monthly offer.

    On the plus side, they do give double points on play during that time and have a certain amount of comp rooms that are available under “free upgrade”, it really doesn’t take more off the backend comps. I was able to get the fortuna suite the last two years which is nice.

    I’m not yet seeing a listing for what the points are worth this year, but here’s what the Macy’s GC and Freeplay points were. To get freeplay, you had to have at least 75,000 points and no more that 50% could be used for the freeplay.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks so much for your reply VegasChic. I also noticed my freeplay was reduced to a quarter of what I normally reserved and no dining credits and I understand that you can't use another promotion and then also attend Grazie Gifts. Also, when I logged in to Grazie website today, I noticed that all my points are zero. I'm hoping this is a big mistake and my points will show up tomorrow and they're just updating their website and they didn't get hacked again.

    Called Grazie- just a system upgrade that should be complete today or tomorrow and info will be restored then.

    Last year I was told the only way to get your grazie gifts was to book an offer and stay but others on the board reported staying elsewhere with regular comps then just going anyway and none were refused redemption. Not sure if they will police that more this year, or if that hit their account as a no play visit and hurt their comps after.

    On a related note of their system upgrade, I have an upcoming trip and I was looking at current reviews for Venetian and Palazzo on Trip Advisor. It seems this system upgrade is also affecting players in person there right now, with not being able to get their comps. VegasChic, as you are the "resident expert" at these properties, this sort of thing has not happened before that you know of, has it? I would not want to experience what these people are complaining about.

    I contacted my casino host about what to expect with 232,000 points. She said she was told you would need 75,000 for a $50 gift card which isn't good. According to VegasChic, last year you only needed 65,627 points for a $100 Macys. gift card. Looks like the event is still in decline and won't be worth it for me. Sigh.

    @EpicNathan. I'm not an "expert" on V/P, but I do remember their system was hacked a couple of years ago and was down for quite some time. So, it happens . . . Earlier today my account was still showing 0 points. When I try to log in now, there is a "we're performing maintenance" message that pops up. I'm happy that I'm not there now, when you have no guarantee that points from play are being added to your account correctly. Hope they get it fixed soon.

    The points are posted now. But my points seem a little off. Anybody else?

    Yes. All of my points are now in the “hotel” spend line and zero on the “casino” line. I’m not sure the number is correct either.

    My hotel points seem to high. I really dont spend too much on food , etc compared to how much i play. My earned free play credits are an even number also.

    Yes, my points are off. It says I’m only 10k away from Platinum! Ha! I’m pretty sure it’s more like 150k away from platinum. My Grazie gift points are correct.

    Mine are totally wrong- says I have only 19,000 points (not even gold) and I know I've exceeded Platinum. I will give it a couple days and see if it corrects itself.

    Getting closer although status points still entirely off- now I'm showing 94K status points, 186K Grazie points and all my offers and slot credits are resolved. Odd.

    It's ridiculous if you have to stay on the Grazie Gifts offer to use your gift points. You earned them all year - they are your points and you should be able to stop in that week, even if you are staying elsewhere, and cash them in.

    I just checked the website and the good news is my Grazie points are correct (I think) at 232,000 points. However my status points are completely wrong. It says I only have 140,000 points and 138,000 from hotel which is an impossibility. When I left on my last trip on September 15, I had over 200,000 status points which would give me platinum for next year too, but I'm missing over 60,000 points. I wish I took a picture as I have no proof that I had over 200,000 status points. My casino host is off today but I'll email her to see if she can fix it.

    I had same issue when booking my Thanksgiving trip. I didn’t want the Grazie Gifts offer, I just wanted to book the November monthly offer. It was far better. Apparently the regular monthly offer only runs November 1st through November 11th! That’s not exactly monthly. Lol My points this year aren’t worth me having to take the Grazie Gifts offer, but I had no choice.
