    Didn't see the contest listed here, but I know we like to share when we win stuff. I have entered contests religiously for YEARS and never won anything. Ever. My wife, who never enters contests, saw a random link to a Wynn contest and forwarded it to me. The contest was three easy questions, of which I just guessed on one cause I figure, "I never win anything."

    http://sos.me/blog/7809/post/1379571

    So my wife calls me one Friday night, out of breath, telling me to check out Wynn's facebook page. "Honey, I think you won." I wouldn't believe her, figuring she was pranking me.

    An hour later, I got an email from Wynn wanting to know when I wanted to visit!! This worked out beyond great because she and I just accumulated enough Rapid Reward points for our flights to be free and enough points on our newly minted Capitol One cards (What's in YOUR wallet?) due to signup bonuses, to get a free convertible for our stay.

    Sometimes Lady Luck does smile on you.

    That's awesome! I've stayed at Wynn and Encore once each and while I normally don't care where I stay this had me rethink my stance on that.

    I won tickets for a concert several years ago and when they called me to tell me I won I must have asked the poor girl on the phone 10 times who put her up to this! Turns out i had killer seats waiting for me at will call.

    Great, I always wanted to stay there, but it never seemed to be the reasonable choice.

    Congratulations on the win your going to love the Wynn. Best hotel by far. Better than Bellagio or gangster paradise Aria and it makes every CET casino look like the old Westward Ho.

    Fantastic! I also like to enter sweeps even though I know the odds are long. For sure, we will want to hear details when you get chance to take the trip! Congrats!

    Hahaha please do elaborate on that phrase. While I do very much love Aria and B, I have to agree Wynncore is probably my favorite place to stay.
