I disagree with Jeff Simpson's understanding of the interrelation of MGMMirage properties comps.

MGM as a corporation has a player's card that pools all play in any MGM casino and applies it to whatever hotel they happen to be staying in. For example, a player can be comped for the rooms at the TI and never play in any place other than MGM Grand and still be offered comps in the future. In fact, you can try to get a comp for things other than rooms, such as restaurants, in a MGM casino different from where you stay, or where you play.

Additionally, membership in the MGMMirage Player's card will get you unsolicited advertisement and promotions from all MGM Properties, regardless if you have ever stayed there or not. I know this from personal experience.

Since ChuckMonster is on vacation, it made me wonder, where does a guy go to take a vacation from covering Las Vegas?
The podcast was highly informative and artistically brilliant, as usual. Thank you all.
