All set for 4 nights at Bellagio in July on my first comped stay, thanks to this board actually! I was ready to book through the offers on the mlife site but decided to call directly just see thanks to a few posts I read here on VMB. You're saving me money already. Got Gold status over New Years at Mandalay and haven't been to Bellagio in over 6 years, so a few questions. Should I go to the mlife desk to pick up my gold Mlife card before checking in and then use the Invited Guests line for check in? Sure would like to use the VIP check in, I guess we'll have to see how my play goes this time. Should I expect anything different at all this time being comped as opposed to my previous trips (stupidly) booked online?
