I got this offer in the mail a few days ago:
Valid July 17-August 9 2012
*Enjoy two comped nights in a "residential-styled living space high above The Las Vegas Strip" (I.E. a converted condo that they haven't been able to sell).
*Receive your choice of $150 in Visa Gift Cards, Identity Play or Promotional Chips for the first 10,000 Identity Points earned on select slots, video poker, or table games. Plus receive your choice of $100 in Visa Gift Cards, Identity Play or Promotional Chips for every additional 10,000 points earned.

Now, when I got home from Vegas on the trip where I signed up for Identity, I tried to register my account on their website so I could check my points balance. Alas, when you try to do this, you get this page, which has been showing "Under Routine Maintenance" for months. I did get a separate mailer from them which listed my current balance of Identity Points, and I foolishly shredded it without making a note of the balance. However, given that I only gave them a few hours of green-chip craps play, from my vague memory of that points balance it seemed like this gift card offer could be worthwhile.

Has anyone else gotten this or a similar offer, and have any insights into the Cosmo's point-accruing schedule?

I get the sound of crickets from them. I throw hundred dollar bills at their slot machines and nothing.

I occasionally get mailings from them -- little ad booklets about 5x7. I found two of them in my desk, one for this summer and one that's been gathering dust since last winter. The summer one says I have accumulated a grand total of 547 Identity Points. I suspect that is worth about 54¢. Or less. It tells me about the variety of things I can spend money on if I were to stay there. The one from last winter offered "two complementary nights in a Terrace Studio." I have to think they sent that one without looking at anything but my mailing address. It said, "To reserve your complimentary 2 night stay, please contact your casino marketing executive...." Like I have a host at the Cosmo.

I've only played there once ever, right as they opened, and I too found it impossible to register my account on their web site.

Anyone have any luck reserving a "comp" room there? Those might be the only rooms worth taking up an offer on...they are really spectacular, especially if you can get a balcony overlooking the Strip.

It looks like my ship at Cosmo has finally come in. Got an offer:

"Blah Blah Blah two free nights blah blah unparalleled luxury blah blah $100 identity play." Good through Jan. 31.

I took the Wizard's advice and kept my out of state address and ID. Looks like it's paying off. I wish my folks would stop throwing out my casino mail though!
