    I get $700 to spend at Crystal, Neiman Marcus or Macy's if I show up the last 2 weeks of August.

    Anybody else get this offer? Do you think you have to spend it IN Vegas?
    The last thing I want to do in Vegas is go shopping, but a $700 gift card is nothing to sneeze at!

    I was planning on going back the week after this expires but I might have to go a week earlier!

    yeah I got it, but only $2500, so not worth an extra trip out there for me considering that can hardly get you a bag of chips at those stores. but if you're already planning on being there then, it's a nice perk. the Beau gives me $4k for their shopping events and it's a much shorter flight, so I always go.

    I have no idea if you have to use it in Vegas or not, but I would guess you could use it at any location if you choose NM or Macy's. obviously Crystals is only in Vegas.

    Wow, and I thought my $700 was nice.

    I just picked some stuff up from Neiman Marcus a few days ago. A $700 gift card there or at Crystals isn't a spree, its more of a spurt. Macy's is cheap though and I've gotten small gift cards for there from casinos and they could always be used anywhere.

    Yeah I had the offer as well but at $400. I don't think I'll be able to make it.

    Shifter are you going to the beau next weekend for their event? I have 1k there and thought I'd make it out for a night to use it. Or did you go during June during the first weekend.

    If the offer gives you gift cards, then you could use those gift cards anywhere. In fact, if it's a visa gift card, like a Simon Mall gift card, you could use those anywhere.

    Generally speaking, though, these "shopping spree" offers usually have specifically identified merchants at a specific location, and there is commonly a small window in which you have to use it at those specified places. The time frame usually is during the weekend you are in town or within a couple of weeks. Most of those offers require you to spend the amount at those places in Vegas, if it's a Vegas casino that offers it.

    I pretty much go for all of them. free flight + free room + shopping cash = no lose. of course I can always lose at the tables, but that's always the same risk regardless.

    Well this is strange. The host said they sold out of rooms Thursday and Friday and the shopping event is sold out. I didn't know that could happen.
