I have a bunch of comps I rather sell then use, and these are for any CET property. Been getting a lot of interest with the WSOP and I figure I try my luck here as well. They are in 2, 3, 4, and 5 night increments. They are usable during weekends (I have to double check since they are broken up into many offers). Here are some that I have available:

5 nights (now till 8/31/13)
4 nights (7/8/13 till 8/15/13) x2
3 nights (7/10/13 till 8/31/13)
4 nights (7/12/13 to 7/14/13) x2
5 nights (7/18/13 to 7/22/13) x2
5 nights (7/25/13 to 7/29/13) x2
2 nights (6/4/13 to 8/4/13)

I can get tickets to Celine Dion, and some other shows but they have to be picked up along with the comps I use so if anyone's interested let me know and I can work out a package deal for a show and hotel.

Help me out here by answering this question: how will someone "use" these comps unless you are there to check them under your name, using your government issued ID, and in the case of show tickets picking them up at the box office without your ID ??

Are you in Vegas and will do the check-ins and pick-ups with the person "buying" your comps? And if so, have you thought about the required credit card at check in?

Thanks.

Yes, but is the seller of the comps going to be there to check in and claim the show tickets at the box office?

There are a couple ways to do this:

1. I check in the hotel room with the person who wants the room. They would use their credit card for incidentals. They pay me and I give them hotel keys.

2. I check in without the person there, and ask to have their name put on the room so they can check in with an extra key. Same goes for credit cards.

I don't know how the procedure works for concerts to be honest. If I can just scalp them it would save me a lot of hassle, but I'm sure it's tied to my room comp.

I will be in Vegas from mid-June so I can get you rooms from then until the expiration date.

I assume you understand your ADT will be gone and you will no longer get CET comps?

Boz you are correct and anyone who allows someone else to use their comps and doesn't play the appropriate amount because they aren't there will be punished by the CET computers.

This happened to me. I allowed my sister-in-law to add my name to her hotel room (even though I was not there) so that she could use my comp dollars to pay for various things during their trip (she was there with an aunt) -- show tickets, dinners. What I didn't know was that put me in the system for a trip with ZERO play. While it didn't wipe out my future comps it did knock me down by a "level" for offers. For example, in the new quarter I was rated for $850 offers instead of $1,000 offers and I missed the $1,000 level by "10 points" whatever the heck that means in the CET system.

For comped tickets the procedure is this: the person in whose name the comped seats are reserved must show up at the box office with ID.

Scalping tickets is possible off site. Take your comped tickets, leave the casino and sell them outside the property. I tried to GIVE AWAY a comped seat to Celine back in March and security was all over me. I stood by the entrance to the Colosseum and as people walked by I said "one ticket free." Security was all over my ass. When I explained my wife couldnt make the trip they told me to turn in the ticket to the box office.

Later I just stood there about to go in when a lady was telling two friends to enjoy the show -- and I asked her if she was going to see the show too and when she said she didnt have a ticket I gave her my extra.
