    Shifter asked me to start this thread so people on this board can compare the various incentives they are getting and try to get the best possible deal for each person's situation.

    The casino will not offer these deals up front to you, so if you don't know and don't ask then you are leaving money on the table. There's no requirement for your host to offer you the best deal possible. They are actually incentivized to offer you the worst deal possible and to see if they can get away with low comping and discounting your play and losses.

    Cosmo international and domestic deals

    Since this has been one of my most recent properties, let me start with them.

    International

    Note for international deals you need to have a foreign passport and they can decide to qualify you for the maximum deal for that country. Your residence has no bearing on this. Airfare cash may vary from country to country. My information on airfare are for Taiwan customers only, but the difference is usually only 500-1k dollars.)

    LOC
    <= 50k 5% discount on losses, 3500 airfare

    <=100k 10% discount on losses, 8k airfare

    <= 300k 10% discount on losses, 14k airfare, 9k quick pay/front money

    <= 500k 13% discount on losses, 22k airfare, 15k qp/fm

    <= 1m 15% discount, 33k airfare, 30k qp/fm

    Domestic

    I know Pphold has a 10% discount on losses over 10k, so please chime in if there are other programs...

    National player. My last visit to Cosmo i lost roughly 40k. They steadfastly refused to give me any discount/airfare allowance. I haven't returned.

    Post script: next trip to Vegas staying elsewhere my host gave me $1500 in free play to try to make up. I took the fp and solace but I'm not returning until this policy is changed - for me at least.

    Yeah, Pphold is a domestic player and he got 10% back with no minimum hours played. Hoping he will chime in. He does have some restrictions on comps though...

    I believe that MGM'S new program is no discount whatsoever under a $100k loss

    V/P, Wynn and Caesar's

    Wynn is the same as Cosmo. Forgot to mention that for the international program above all casinos require 12-15hours of play per trip, and theo requirements playing up to 25% of your line.

    So for instance at 100k CL you need 25k theoretical.

    The only difference for V/P and Caesars is that they will not pro-rate your play. You need to declare what you want to play to ahead of time to qualify for discounts. And if for some reason you don't hit it then you get nothing...

    Also at Caesars intl program only pertains to baccarat.

    there's no min hours at Cosmo, but there is a min loss to qualify.

    I think it's 100k loss to get the 10%.

    50k(?) and you get 5%.

    Like i said. I know for a fact Pphold deal is 10% over 10k with some minor restrictions. So the best deal I've heard so far.

    Is this program PPhold got at Cosmo accessible to anybody or was there a special way he was able to get it? What type of restrictions?
