    The Bellagio's lunch buffet reward disappeared yesterday so it figures that it'd come back with a higher price tag. Alas:

    One Breakfast or Lunch Buffet pass - 34,000 lps
    Two Breakfast or Lunch Buffet passes - 136,000 lps
    One Dinner Buffet pass - 70,000 lps
    Two Dinner Buffet passes - 280,000 lps

    Insanely high prices for a buffet reward. However, it seems this is good any day of the week (the previous 21k lp lunch buffet pass was only good on weekdays). Blackout dates are listed.

    And yet, I'm sure I'll purchase the dinner pass for my next trip because I'd take Bellagio's buffet over Aria's any damn day of the week.

    I agree that the prices are insane.

    But I don't agree with it's valid any day of the week. It's only valid on Monday through Thursday and doesn't include Champagne Brunch, Holidays, and Blackout Days.

    Where does it say that? I see blackout dates but nothing about weekends.

    Does the Bellagio dinner buffet include a line pass?

    It on the second page ams.

    But they just copied/pasted those restrictions from the old rewards because on the dinner buffet because it says the dinner buffet is valid for "breakfast/lunch only"...lol

    And ridiculous prices. The sooner you can spend LPs the better, because they will eventually become worthless...

    I bought the dinner pass for two last night. I have more than enough points and it must be expensive enough that no one wants or has enough points for it because after seeing it available, I waited another two hours before getting it.

    Damn, that's a lot of points for two dinners. I was able to purchase 3 Bonus nights at Aria for 297,000 LP and when I look online that's a $480 value ($160 per night) for the time I'm going. How much does two dinner buffets at Bellagio cost? Around $100?

    $33 Sun-Thu / $39 Fri-Sat per person. 280,000 LP for a 2-dinner reward is horrible value for LP. A single dinner buffet is 70,000 LP which is still poor value, but that's where we're trending with LP value :(

    TOTALLY AGREE - just got back from Vegas - Aria buffet was terrible - did Breakfast/Lunch - bacon had absolutely no flavour - like they were use a "no name" brand - we go to Ellis Island for Breakfast several times during a stay - their breakfast bacon is of much better quality with some actual flavour to it - I would avoid Aria buffet ALSO - 9:30 AM and they are playing loud "Club Music" for Breakfast - give me a break - most of us are hungover, etc. - don't want to have the music blasting away - some nice quiet music for Breakfast please...
    That's my 2 cents....

    Ah yes, I see the Monday - Thursday restriction now. I swear it wasn't there when I first posted this! :bang: Absolutely ridiculous. Bellagio is my favorite MLife buffet, but it's not worth that many LPs if I can't use it on the weekend.

    "One Breakfast or Lunch Buffet pass - 34,000 lps
    Two breakfast or Lunch Buffet passes - 136,000 lps
    One Dinner Buffet pass - 70,000 lps
    Two Dinner Buffet passes - 280,000 lps"

    I know I am challenged in this area...but I just don't get their math.
    If one Breakfast is 34,000 why isn't two 68,000?
    If one dinner is 70,000, why isn't two 140,000?

    Conventional wisdom is that you pay a premium because you're able to, in essence, reap two rewards while utilizing only one of your three allotted rewards within a 30-day span. Although that "premium" seems excessive to me.

    Charging 280,000 for two passes to any buffet, including Bally's Sterling Brunch, is mind boggling. Two premium tickets to any of the CdS shows are only 208,000.

    With the exception of two High Teas we have only used myVegas rewards for show tickets. We have tickets for O and Ka this trip (Love is dark when we are there next). I wonder if there will be anything decent to choose from when we go in the summer.
