    New member here(clearly), found this forum looking for hotel deals for an upcoming trip in late August. Just signed up for TR and Mlife, knowing nothing about either, in hopes of getting some discounted rates. Aaaand that hasn't happened yet. :eek:

    I go to Vegas every year or so, sometimes more, sometimes less, but absolutely love it there. Wife plays some slots, I'm a huge fan of craps. And I really miss O'sheas. I'll be posting in the Strip hotels and casinos thread asking for help, but any and all info is greatly appreciated.

    So, hello!

    Welcome and hello.
    Don't forget to check out the section on hotel deals as well as get on the hotels e-mail list. Also, you can always call the hotel directly to verify their rates. You will find rates can and do vary based on the means used to gather them.

    Sign up for the players club and if you aren't getting offers now you surely will after your trip. The offers make for a great excuse to go back to Vegas.

    Thanks. There is way too much information on this board! I was going to post a question, but there's plenty to read here, first. The trip in August we will be getting 3 rooms, there's going to be seven of us. We're trying to balance value/quality, and right now we're looking at the Flamingo, and using the $20 trick for upgrade. Thanks again for the welcome. This board is great!

    Welcome to the board! I'm also in SoCal (currently in Costa Mesa)

    I was going to Vegas once a year, up until this last year when I started going every few months. (I'm actually not that much of a gambler, but do enjoy craps and VP. The board seems to help with withdrawls between trips.

    Thanks, I've asked a question or two, but there's so much already posted. The search function has been a good friend here.
