    I have my summer corporate from Mlife, but am hesitant to lock it in now, in case we miss a better offer. (Like others have said, once I book, I don't see many offers come in for that date range.)

    Does anyone know the next round of Mlife offers coming? If winter, I will just book now, as we're saving our winter offer for our big spring trip (PAC 12 tourney).


    Thanks!

    I think the 'book by date' is generally a good indication when the next batch is coming, I believe early September it usually is....

    Outside of the tier credit discounts which are always laughable,I have two room offers.
    1.Aria for stays through Nov.30 must be booked by 8/31
    2.Generic corporate offer for any hotel 3 nights.Good for stays through 10/31 .Must be booked by 7/31.
    Have also been receiving snail mail offers almost weekly for rooms plus TMobile arena show Tix for Gwen Stefani,Barbara Streisand,UFC 200 etc.
    None coincided with any of my travel dates so they get tossed.


    I received the Aria offer after my host reserved my mid August stay there on an older offering in June.

    The release date of offers has been somewhat unpredictable.
    There have been times when I have had several active offers with different amounts of resort credit.
    Other times most offers expire .

    Thanks as Always Nittany! You read my mind on hotels. I have an Aria offer but it's not so hot. (Aria is normally my homebase.) I keep getting concert offers via email/mail, but I want stronger RC. My Aria offer also says book by 7/31.

    My dilemma is, I have a corporate offer that has ok for Aria/Bellagio, and RC that is a good chunk higher for the moderate/lower hotels. I was kicking around Luxor, only because their Premier suite looks like a surprisingly decent room, and I get much more generous RC. Have you ever stayed at Luxor? I was comparing that and NYNY, but I kind of like the Luxor Premier suite better, if the pics are accurate.

    Again Nittany, thanks for great advice, I really appreciate what a great feedback you gave me!

    Well I don't really play much in Vegas mostly in Midwest where I'm from but still MGM property so I would have thought something!!! Oh I do get some offers from Beau something in Miss. That's it!

    I'm going to Vegas end of July and I was able to get comped rooms thru contacting hotels host based on my current play.

    Have not stayed at Luxor in about 12-13 years when my kids were younger.
    Everything has changed there since I was there.I stayed in a suite in the towers and it was relatively nice but a long,long walk from everywhere.

    Stopped in last year and saw Carrot Top again. He was good but I'm just not a fan of their casino for a number of reasons.
    If you are going in Feb for the NCAA tourn.the pool won't be a factor but their pool is weak.

    Not to sounded jaded but after staying at Aria , Luxor and NYNY would be a noticeable difference for you.
    As the "book by" date approaches, keep your eye out for new offers.

    A lot of people here do not agree with me but I would rather pay a little more out of pocket and stay where I want on vacation.

    Hey Nittany, thanks again! Honestly, this was an impromptu trip, since we were just out in May.

    For this trip, we'll also be staying at Cosmo, and they'll be getting the brunt of my play, so I was thinking, since this is a smaller/impromptu trip, to have my other hotel be more relaxed on play. (At a hotel where I'll definitely play, but don't watch my play as closely as I do at places I care about comps...Cosmo/Aria.)

    BUT I've been worried myself if it's going to be a let down. I figured, we've stayed at MC and can handle their standard rooms (Monaco suite ironically we like less than a standard room, it was too dark for us). The Luxor premier suite looks a lot better, but I'm still a little hesitant, especially since they have some unusual verbiage in their comp promo that hints they'll tap express comps first. (More firm in wording than others we've seen).

    Like you suggested, I'll wait and see what else opens. I'll definitely keep your advice in mind-its always great.

    P.s. no way on Luxor for PAC 12 in March, that absolutely will be Aria/Cosmo as its a "planned as scheduled" trip, so I won't feel the need to be frugal. :)

    Thanks a ton again, and have a great Tuesday!

    Guessing maybe you have had some low play visits that have brought your ADT down?

    Sometimes a call will generate a better offer for an upcoming trip.

    For those only getting Aria/Bellagio offers, call a host at Mbay, Mirage, MGM and see if they will do a bit better. It worked for us.

    Nost - my current average bet on baccarat is min $300 to $1500 per hand I really don't play anything else.... Last visit I had in Vegas yeah I didn't really play much tho... Matter fact I learned how to play baccarat at bellagio at 25 per hand but coming back home freaking game made monster out of me lol...

    Her in Midwest I get whatever I want ...so this trip Vegas coming up will be first time after learning how to play Bacc with high average bet.

    Hey Nittany,

    Quick thank you and follow up. I think your instincts are right, so I went ahead and just booked Aria, versus trying out Luxor.

    It's been our home base for awhile, and they're always so good to us...I'd rather stay someplace I know I love.

    So, thank you Nittany...I DID listen, and I feel really good about the decision...great advice, as always!
