    Headed out in May. Went to check on the itinerary and saw all my FP and other parts of my offer had been replaced with RFBHOST.

    Did I lose parts of my initial offer? We did amend our initial reservation from 4 nights to 2 because my GF wanted to switch to Flamingo for a couple nights for the pool and center location.

    It was a healthy amount of FP or I wouldn’t even ask.
    Thanks for the help.

    I think there's a good chance they changed your FP. They've probably got it figured for you being there for 4 days, so only staying 2 will cost them on how much time you gamble.

    If they were free nights anyway I probably would have just double booked offers at 2 hotels

    It means you get Newbert, the Real Frickin' Bad Host.


    *kidding* The comment above is probably correct.

    :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:. I really liked him up until now.

    I’m hoping it’s another Mlife website screw up.

    Thanks Goldenknight for the insight. I will reach out to my host to see if we can sort it out. I purposely didn’t double book because I know I would have definitely underplayed for my offer if he comped all 4 nights plus the FP and FB.

    Now it appears I have nothing but the room comped :cry:

    "RFB" stands for RoomFoodBeverage. It traditionally meant your room, any food, and any drinks were comp'd upfront for your stay. Just order and sign. I was RFB for many years at Las Vegas Hilton. Of course, it was booked and set-up through your casino host.

    I would imagine it still means the same thing. Then again, Vegas has changed a lot in the last 20 years.

    Check with your host.

    99% certain its just a coding meaning your host was involved with the reservation. And it is just showing your rating, you qualify for Resort Food and Beverage and are keyed to a host.

    Nearly every single offer I have ever booked anywhere needed a 2 night stay to get free play. I cant see them taking away your free play if you were still booked for 2 nights. If you booked 4 nights with free play, then changed it to 1 night, I can see that happening.

    What did your host say? I have had good host change my booking a few times before my stay, as better offers populated in my account,.

    If you are talking about an MLife property, I've never had my freeplay amount changed because of the number of nights I booked.

    Almost all their offers require a 2 night minimum, but MGM Grand used to send out offers that would let you book a single night, I did that a couple of years ago and got all the FP & RC.

    I've never seen anybody mention the change you're seeing, but I think it's just because of your play level and not because you shortened the reservation.

    Spoke with my host. Everything in my original offer is still going to be available.

    He told me to stop worrying and even suggested we go out for a nice meal or 2
    and book ourselves some massages while there and it will be taken care of.

    Just said it had to be coded that way for our shortened stay.

    it’s never fun getting out there and finding
    out your FP has disappeared or that day bed you booked is coming completely out of your pocket.

    You hear everyday that comps are tightening and was just curious if it was happening to me.
