By “splurge” I just mean the hotel isn’t comped.

I think what you mean is it is not comped in advance. Your host will learn of your trip and I would hope you will not be disappointed upon checking out.

Host? I highly doubt $25 Pai Gow will ever qualify anyone for a host at Wynn/Encore.
Lock him up!

I know what you mean but many places value repeat visitors even if their action is below what would normally be of interest to that property. If you are a frequent visitor and have been observed "doing the Lord's work" (tipping) you might at least get the casino rate on your room. I could not even afford 25 cent pai gow but I would still have a chat with a host just before checking out.

Seems like ams and I are almost the same gambler... When I stayed at Wynn or Encore I did speak with a host at the end of my stay, and one time they surprisingly comped a few hundred dollars in meals; the other time maybe one meal that was less than $100. But I was put on some sort of email list with discounted rooms, maybe it was $200 a night instead of the rack rate.

So it looks as if your conversation got you 300 dollars and an indication from them that they would be amenable to further savings if your computer profile ever changed. For you, that is not a particularly staggering return on your investment of time and energy but it at least gave you a clear view of where you stand with them.

Is your encore room a special room or is that just the cost for a normal room?

If normal then you should play the Wynn casino app. In 6 weeks I have enough points for 4 nights free and they waive the resort fees. No guarantee that you would get in encore though, but free is free

I think I'll try the Wynn casino ap then! To me there is no difference between the Wynn or Encore, and if push cam to shove, I'd say I like Wynn a tiny bit more because the tables I played were a slightly shorter walk.

Already got a trip booked with the app for Labor Day weekend (four weeks from today!)

It's slow going but there are a few ways to earn points easily. I got 1200 today on my wife's account. Rooms are anywhere from 1600-5000 depending on day. Max 4 rooms per stay but wife and I could do 4 each back to back for 8 nights. No black out dates as far as I know
