    During my last visit to Vegas, I did all of my gambling at MGM casinos. I did pretty well. I have been getting rooms offers about once a week for the last few months, but nothing special.

    Yesterday in the mail, I got this deal:

    3 Night Stay at Beau Rivage in Biloxi, MS for 2 people

    - Includes roundtrip airfare for 2 from Detroit Airport to MS(I live in metro Detroit)
    - Shuttle service to and from airport
    - $50 dining voucher

    I can use it for various times in Feburary, including 14th - 17th (a weekend!!)

    Am I crazy not to take this? I go up and down these boards and really haven't seen many comps including airfare. I was holding out for a better offer to go back to Vegas. If I use this will that end any future offers from coming in?

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I would jump on it in a heartbeat!

    The Beau is a smaller Bellagio. We really enjoy going there. Great food. Hopefully you have some Express Comps to help with that. Very nice rooms.

    Not much else to do there, maybe walk next door to Hard Rock casino/hotel.

    Yea, I would do it!

    Every few months or so someone will ask almost this exact question about a similar flight included offer from the Beau. I would do a quick search on Beau Rivage and you will find a handful of threads that tell you pretty much everything you need to know.

    I've personally taken advantage of nearly the same offer from Houston to the Beau two or three times. If you are like me then its a great pacifier between Vegas trips and its also a great way to have a very relaxing weekend especially since its a charter and has some added comforts/benefits over your usual cattle flights.

    Edited to add: If you are like me you are skeptical the first time and wonder where the fine print or strings are. In short, there really aren't any and the offer is exactly as it sounds and even better in many ways.

    Yes, you'd be crazy not to take the offer.

    I'd KILL for one of these offers. I live in Metro Detroit too so maybe I'll get one if enough high rollers don't accept them. lol

    I recently received 2 BR flight offers for February, flying out of 2 different airports (FWA and CMH). Unfortunately, I can't go (bad timing). I have got these offers before, but never used them.

    On thing I have always wondered about. These offers are set up for 2 people and I would be going solo. I wonder if they would let me use the offer.

    I post the same thing every time somebody brings this up.

    Do it. There is no catch to it. It's a great high roller type deal that they send out to mid to low rollers. They've been doing it awhile so they must think it pays off for them.

    I've been able to go on three of them. Couldn't use the offer for this month though.

    Yes, they will allow just one person. Actually, they probably would love to only take the degenerate gamblers, and leave the sane, no gambling half at home. (only laugh if this applies to you)

    I've used this offer 4 times. Love the Beu Rivage. I signed up with the travel agent that runs the trips, and they send them monthly, along with CET offers in Tunica. No waiting for MGM

    They sell out fast. Book ASAP when you get the offer.

    I did not call on my latest offer because I couldn't go at that time.
    But I got an email a week before the time saying "there's still time to book."
    So I guess sometimes they have to work hard to fill that plane.

    We got the same offer in Dec flying out of ORF. I didn't call for 3 weeks and ours was booked up too. I asked if they have a waiting list and she said, "sure". Long story/short.....they sent an e-mail last week and said we were booked:beer:

    I'd call them back and ask.

    I just got back from CES in Vegas on the 11th, I had a offer for Beau Rivage in the mail and I booked it on the 12th.
    We really enjoy this trip and try to go whenever we can. I would do as Dean said and get on a waiting list if possible. I believe that since the offer can be cancelled for no charge up to a week before people( me included) will book the offer and then cancel later if they can't make it.

    We get those offers almost every month and we're not exactly high-rollers. We booked last July for the first time and loved it! Beau Rivage is a really nice property, and there's a shuttle that will take you around to all the other casinos if you want to explore.

    We're heading there again on Monday. So next time definitely try it, but call right away if you can!
