    We are heading back to Vegas in Feb 2016 , we arrive on the 8th (day after Superbowl) and are there until 14th . I have contacted the Mirage and have been offered 6 nights for a total of $770 (inc taxes and resort fee) this deal is apparently based on past play and the most expensive of the nights ( Sat 13th) is comped. I have reserved the room (no deposit) and it is changeable if a better rate comes alone nearer the time.

    I think this is a really good deal I have been offered , I have checked and via my Mlife account the same room (basic room) would be about $1300 including all taxes/fees. Is this as good a deal as I think ?

    Thanks

    You are REALLY far out to get any good rates. I would start really checking prices in December. You should also have offers by then also. Have fun!!!

    2-3 months out is your sweet spot unless it's a huge weekend like super bowl. And maybe even still then lol. Way too early now.

    Thanks for the replies , I was going to wait and start looking at the end of the year but contacted them about another offer and asked what they could do for our dates in February. I will keep looking and hopefully keep changing the booking as offers come out . I just thought it was good getting the most expensive night comped this far out and getting a good discount on the other ones.

    Weekend after superbowl is always cheap. I usually want to stay another day or two and have made it out a few times for just that occassion. Prices will definitely drop, but doesn't hurt to have a REFUNDABLE backup plan until something better does come along (it will).

    I made sure I could cancel without penalty before I booked and they have not even taken a deposit or CC details . We have chosen that week because of hopefully lower rates and better availability however with the following weekend being valentines , I am happy to have something in place ($160 + taxes for both Friday & Saturday combined)

    I agree that it's too early to get a good deal, but on the other hand, I also don't think there's anything wrong with booking now. If you're sure you want to go then and stay at Mirage, then there's absolutely no reason not to book. If the rate goes down, you can get it adjusted, and you never know when something is going to pop up that will make rates go up in the future (see, for example, my friend who booked his hotel months ago on what turned out to be the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight weekend, and who would have been absolutely screwed had he waited).

    It's not bad, but I think you could do better. Mirage seems sends out discounted room offers to anyone who even as much as gambles a dime on a players card and provides an email address that should beat that. For the past 3 years I've been booking trips on these offers which offer $39 rooms on non-peak days up to $69 rooms on peak days (resort fee and tax not included) with the occasional blackout date.

    My current trip from May 30th to June 5th had all but Saturday at the $39 rate iirc. I had to pay full price for Saturday (blackout date) and it was just shy of $200. My 5 night trip all in with resort fee and taxes included is $555.74. I think I got the email back in January or February. I get an updated email every month and it basically just pushes their latest date available out further and further.

    If your Saturday is comped, then I think you might still be paying too much for the other dates. As long as you can cancel, there is no harm in booking it and waiting to see what pops up once you get 2-4 months out.

    I have not been getting offers from the Mirage direct but have been getting them through my mlife account. These offers are freeplay and comp rooms midweek , I will hopefully get one later in the year that covers our dates and then amend the booking accordingly. I am happy with what I am paying for the weekend (will keep checking for the Friday just in case) but should make a bit of a dent in the midweek cost
