Interesting. The casino offers that have been filling my mailbox the past couple of weeks. Casinos I haven’t played in for months (and really didn’t even spend much money in when I did visit) are sending me bigger and better players club deals/coupons/promotions seemingly every day. One mailer went as far as saying — in big, bold letters — “We Miss You!” (Wow, how can you resist such a plaintive appeal?) To sweeten the deal, a couple of $15 coupons accompanied this particular “love letter.” And, actually, quite a few of the offers I’ve gotten are enough to get me to visit these casinos.
In addition to great room offers, free shows and merchandise giveaways, I’m also noticing quite a few more tournaments and promotional events for both slot and table game players. Even the offers recognizing my April birthday have better incentives such as the $25 in bonus birthday play from — thank you, very much — Casino Arizona in Scottsdale. (A side note: Casino Arizona’s April giveaway is an umbrella. These are the same people who gave away mittens and a scarf earlier this year. Hmmm, someone needs to tell them it rains here just about as often as it gets cold enough for mittens and a scarf….)
Also interesting, a number of the offers are coming to me from the casinos via my email box. Sending offers through email makes so much sense. Got rooms to fill in a hurry? Put together a quick email and send it to thousands of club members within a matter of minutes!
So, what does this all have to do with you?
- Always, always sign up for a players club card even when you don’t plan on playing a lot. A casino can’t send you offers if they don’t know who you are and where to find you.
- Do not throw away the mailers unopened. Who knows what goodies await inside?
- Sign up for email notifications from the casinos. You’ll get some great last-minute offers.
- If you live somewhere it rains a lot, I’ve got an umbrella you can have….
