Yesterday on a whim I booked a Solo trip to Vegas. I used my SWA points so it only cost $11.00 in taxes. Then I called Wynn to see about an offer I received. Nope nothing available unless I wanted to pony up over $800.00. No way! Then I started looking at other rates up and down the Strip. It's hard to pay for a room that you're used to getting for free and I did not feel like staying at a less desirable location. There must be a lot of Conventions that week. So I cancelled the flight 5 hours after booking. Oh well. At least I didn't loose any points and the $11.00 was refunded. I'll have to look into booking something in November or December.
