    So I am traveling to Vegas with my wife and two daughters and am staying at the Luxor since they like the theme there. My reservations are from Friday, June 24 to Sunday, June 26. Generally we would leave Pasadena, CA early Friday morning and drive and get to Vegas around Noon on Friday.

    My wife and I were thinking about maybe leaving Thursday night right after work and getting to Vegas around 10-11 p.m. I went to MyVegas and redeemed comp night for luxor to see if I can make reservations for Thursday...there was no availability.

    Ok so I went to check all the other calendars and MGM, Mirage and NYNY had comp rooms for Thursday. I first purchase NYNY and choose the highlighted gold date of Thursday, June 23. I check the checkout date for the 24th since that is when i'm leaving. However, the room will not appear as a comp but instead says that we cannot book this date. Same thing with Mirage, and MGM.

    Anyone else having issues with choosing a checkout date after staying on a Thursday? I've done this before where I purchased a Thursday comp and checked out Friday morning.

    I wonder what gives?:grrr:

    I believe it's because you already have used a MyVegas comped room. See the attached screenshot and start reading from "Limit" on the first line. I could be wrong though.[​IMG]

    The existing reservation that I have is comped by the Casino so maybe that is the issue?

    I know when booking mLife offers, you had to have 72hrs in between. I'd be really surprised if that's the case here, but then again I wouldn't be.

    "Ok so I went to check all the other calendars and MGM, Mirage and NYNY had comp rooms for Thursday."

    I am new to the board, and this is my second attempt to reply, so apologies if both replies show up!

    First: maybe a dumb question, but have you previously used a weekday comp at Luxor and NYNY? My understanding is that each MGM reward can only be used once, and you mentioned you've done weekday comps before, but not where.

    Second: how do I find the calendars of comp rooms? Is it on the mlife site, or do I have to purchase a reward before I have access to the calendars?

    We'll be going to Vegas end of June and I'll be trying to use some free nights at MGM for June 26-27 (Sun/Mon) together with an existing reservation, so we'll see how that goes. I'm just outside my 90 days, so can't try it yet. We've used lots of myvegas rewards in the past, but nothing since they changed the system so you have to book through the mlife site. I'm assuming there might be a hassle.

    fyi / thanks

    Well the more i think about, the less it become clear. I used a Thursday comp about 6 months ago. I'm going to Vegas in June with a comp offer from the hotel but don't know what that has to do with Myvegas.

    If you are looking for comp dates, here is a good link

    I'm pretty sure the 72 hour rule is the reason why it won't let you book the room.

    No i looked at the rewards calendar above. Says the Thursday dates are good to purchase but when you try to redeem on mlife it says a price of around 115 for each place. I messed with the dates and the comps would appear on other dates.

    Sh0ck is right, 72 hour rule. Fairly recent change I believe.

    Does this mean any offer including Tier based offers? So If I get a room based on my tier credit and pay myself I still am not allowed to get a comp room using MyVegas? That sucks.

    I'm pretty sure the tier discount is okay, just no other comped or reduced rate offers.

    It could be possible that that date is no longer available. When the dates are released, they do not adjust the calendars, even when there is no more MyVegas comp rooms available for that date. It could very well be possible that all the available rooms for that night have been taken.

    And what others have said, many of the MGM hotels are not allowing anyone to book a MyVegas room back to back with a MLife comp. I don't think this is the case if you have paid for a room.

    My experience during booking a room last November was that once I booked a room through Mlife (not even a comped room) I was not able to combine a MyVegas comp room with it. The learning experience going forward is, I will book the MyVegas room first, then book additional nights through Mlife.

    Sorry, I meant did you already use the myvegas weekday comps, not just a regular hotel comp.

    Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.
