Much of the information is evanescent. The menu at the Venetian's Thanksgiving Day Violins and Food won't be much use after the holiday.
However one startup firm just took on the task of analyzing local casinos offerings and comparing them for player's advantage.

Do you really want to hear about the rinky dink little Thigamajig they give you for opening a new club card or just the 20 dollars in freeplay?

It would be a section with much of the information stale dated and not of much value when it was fresh.

I like the idea but I share FleaStiff's concerns. On the other hand, one person's thingamajig is another person's treasure.

Yes, and I actually know someone who said she just loves running around to different casinos solely to get the keychains, free dice, pack of cards and visor-cap. I'd shoot myself before treking across town to get pair of tiny 7-11 dice or a lousy visor cap I ain't never gonna remember to have with me on a sunny day.

I would appreciate info on the trends of promotions, for example, if casinos are bringing back cashback or bounce back, or eliminating it; of if a particular casino has upped what they give for shopping sprees or cutting.

About two years ago Caesars cutback on shopping spree promotional amounts even for diamond and 7 star players, but it looks like they are loosening the purse strings again.

The Great Gift Wrap Up coming Nov-Dec for the Caesars/Harrahs props doesnt appear to have the selection it did in years past.
