    Just a quick question if anyone knows the answer....we may have to take a trip out west and would be passing through Vegas, and I am figuring we would just stay there overnight with MyVegas LPs. The issue is it would be a last minute kind of thing, we might have 3 days notice before we have to be there. I'm wondering if the dates are available on the calendar, how likely is it that I can redeem a room with only 3 days before going? I know that its better to book as far out as possible, but does anyone have experience with last minute booking through comps? We are looking at a cheap hotel, Circus or Excalibur.

    If it would be a weeknight, you're probably okay on that short of notice. Slow weekends might be okay too. I think if the basic room is still available at the property of your choice when you call to redeem, you can use the reward.

    I would consider buying awards preemptively though if you are less than 90 days out from this happening. It's possible that other hotels stop offering rewards like Aria did earlier this year.

    Also, just because the calendar shows dates are available, doesn't mean they are. MyVegas doesn't change the calendar after its released.

    So, if I want to book a room at the Mirage for the end of February, you suggest I redeem the free room now even though the calendar isn't up yet?
