Does This Bother Any Of You?

Here's the one thing that I really hate about Caesars and CET Properties. So I get the latest "Routinely Spectacular July Rewards" mailer today. It's full of free play. $75 on Thursdays with a choice of a double play day, $100 on Fridays, $100 on Saturdays and $100 on Sundays except of course on the Sunday the 28th, the day I arrive. So another totally useless mailer full of play I can't use because it's only on certain days. CET is also well known for limiting days for free buffets & room service. I hate getting offers with restrictions. Thoughts?

I think we all hate that the slot play is only good on certain days even though I understand it somewhat.

I have noticed in the past if a day that is normally covered like that is skipped in the regular mailers (like that Sunday 28th) there is usually a supplemental mailer that covers that day with a more generous offer.

I agree, what difference is it as long as they get a rated player in the door? who cares if it is a Wednesday or Saturday? They should just be glad you and others gamble at their casino and not put restrictions on the offers.

if the offers are to get you there, hoping you'll stay and play, then the offers should be for any day of the month..

I imagine they won't move things from weekdays to weekends but I used to get free buffet offers for Monday and Tuesday when I work. I called and told them I was off Wednesday and Thursday and that if I got offers on those days I would go to their resort to eat and then gamble. They actually made the change, it took 2 months like they said it would but it hasn't changed for a couple of years now.

"if the offers are to get you there, hoping you'll stay and play, then the offers should be for any day of the month"

I totally agree, especially for folks who travel 4+ hours to get there. I don't venture down to AC because I'm offered X amount of free play on a certain day per their monthly mailer or a free Diamond Booklet or Windbreaker Jacket. I venture down when my schedule permits.

RanMan07 | It's not only about Caesars/CET properties that bother me, but also at the others as well.

This weekend CZR's is giving away the gas card promotion & I won't be there to take advantage of it. Am going up the following weekend instead; just my luck!

Additionally, Resorts sent me an offer for two free tickets for a concert this upcoming weekend; something else I can't take advantage of.

Then there's that Saturday, July 6th Chris Isaak two free concert tickets offer I received from The Revel; I struck out again. And then there's the new July Match Play + then lose $100+ in slot play during July; which I will miss out on because I'm leaving for home early Monday morning July 1st & will not be up to AC that month due to a Fla. vacation.

So it's not just CZR's, but the whole kitten caboodle bunch of them that do that to me. And that's what really bothers me...LOL!

Ran - yep, it sucks! It happens at all casinos though. I wish it was isolated to just one property (or group of properties) this way I could avoid them!

And it's not just the casinos that bother me.

As my timing would have it, the AC AirShow is being held on Wed., June 26th, the day before I arrive. It couldn't take place on Fri., the 28th instead; no siree...LOL. So, I also get to miss out on that event as well. AC events & my timed arrivals never seem to fall in sync with one another for some reason. I do qualify for a consolation prize: next Friday's Revel beach umbrella giveaway promotion.

I guess that's what happens when one lives four hours away from AC. Can't win them all.
