Code works for 2 free nights, $15 in slot play, and 2 for 1 buffet

Choose your dates at: http://grandsierraresort.com/
Enter code: 2free at checkout.
Put your GSR (Grand Sierra Rewards card) number in the activation code box.

Your credit card will reserve the room for $25. Check in with picture ID and credit card on file.
Upon checkout, this will be refunded. If you do not show up, you will not get the refund.
The offer says you will be charged a resort fee but we've done this a few times and never been charged.

As before, this offer is linked to specific Grand Sierra Rewards cards so YMMV.

Offer good until 12/17.

I'd go if the snow was decent. Last season sucked, there was no snow in December.

It might take you to the checkout page, but you can't actually book this without an activation code.

i.e., I can select weekend dates using the 2FREE code, and it shows $0, so it seems like it works. But on the final page where you enter your personal information and credit card and click the "Book your stay now" button, you will get an error "The Activation Code you entered is invalid. Please check the spelling"

At least, that's my experience.

1) THERE IS NO ACTIVATION CODE. PEOPLE NEED TO QUIT BEGGING FOR AN ACTIVATION CODE. YOU ENTER YOUR GSR PLAYER'S CARD NUMBER AS THE "ACTIVATION CODE".
2) Blackout dates are 10/5 and 10/6
3) Asking for someone else's GSR card number to get a 'free' room is a huge YMMV - if the names don't match, you're likely to get charged full price if they don't cancel your reservation first (as the name on the card won't match the name on the reservation). And yes, I've seen it while waiting in line to check in.
4) I also have noticed that in some browsers, in some instances, and depending on how you enter things in their website - it will show you a $0 room without an activation code. Again, when you get down there, it can be a YMMV.

Yes, this works just fine. I've got reservations over Veterans Day weekend.

This one does not require a code but it is only good for Sun-Thur (including 1/2/13). Friday & Saturday is $25/night
Ummm, No. shake head

LOL, these were from 2011 . Take a look at the valid dates at the bottom.

GSR keeps a lot of old promos on their website, you can find stuff that goes back a few years.

So are you saying if you received the offer you don't need an activation code? Because you most certainly do if not.

I have stayed at GSR numerous times, have my player's card and did exactly what you said. It says the activation code is incorrect. So either you are not giving correct information or this code is limited to select GSR player's card numbers. There is a spot for GSR player's card number and a separate box for activation code. Entering the same number for both did not work. Maybe it is based on dates selected?

I think I will just call the number you are showing and see if it works using it that way. I do appreciate you trying to help, but perhaps the trouble people are having is not solely do to user error.

This is totally ymmv and based on receiving the offer. I wasn't eligible. Your only option would be to try and use someone else's number but then as the previous poster said you will probably pay full price. This deal isn't real for most folks. Too bad because I like GSR

I did not get an invitation but one of my friends who got her GSR card during our first stay did. Both of our GSR numbers worked for the free room. Our friends who signed up a few months later during our second stay have not have a valid offer yet.

I agree, it's completely YMMV as far as the offer working on your GSR card, but that some people who haven't gotten the offer may still be eligible.

Often casinos will target a certain geographic area. Or certain block of player card numbers. Happened with the Cal Neva two years ago - one of their promos was for a certain block of numbers, which we got. I know this because I had the opportunity to 'talk shop' with their promos manager one evening.

If you received the postcard that I posted - you should be good. Otherwise, it's going to be a YMMV.

Also; I've noticed that many casinos are deactivating cards if there isn't activity on the card in xxxx amount of months/years, to save on marketing/promotions. Circus Circus has knocked theirs down to like six months, as I had to get a new card the last time I was there (it had been 9 months - not that I was against that, as I got new "new member" coupons and such).

It's very, very, very simple. Just look at the attachment of my post, which is of the postcard GSR mailed out with the promotion requirements. It very clearly says "...along with your GSRewards number as your activation code". Meaning, as I posted in #1 - you GSR players club number is the activation code.

Tried it and it didn't work. I checked my offers from GSR and I had no promo's either. *sigh*
