    Being a newbie I have a couple of questions and did not want to start a thread for each one.

    Is there one mlife office I need to stop at to get my rewards loaded or several? I have a reward for lunch at Bellagio and also Terry Fator Tickets so far.

    CET properties, I have seen this referenced several times and do not know what it means.

    Is the monorail the best way to get around on the strip? We are staying on the strip but will not know where until 2 weeks prior to our trip 9/16.

    I am sure I will have more questions and I appreciate all the help from the Vegas pros!!

    You need to redeem most rewards at the mlife office at the casino where your reward is. There is generally one mlife office at each casino. I know cirque tickets are an exception and can be picked up at any mgm box office. Not sure about Terry Fator.

    CET properties are all under Ceasers Entertainment brand. They are the biggest competitor on the strip to Mlife. IE Ceasars, Harrahs, Paris, Ballys, etc...

    I would choose the deuce (the bus that runs along the strip) over the monorail if I were using public transit. The 24 hour passes are affordable, the stops are frequent, and you dont have to wait all that long for the next bus. Monorail has service limited to only a few areas and will result in more walking. Monorail would be ok if you knew exactly where you were going to be heading, and it happened to stop at those locations. If this is your first time in Vegas, I can pretty much guarantee it wont get you everywhere you want to go without a significant amount of extra walking.

    as far as the monorail goes that's on the Caesars side of the strip and requires a cash pass, the other side of the strip is MGM mostly and has a free tram (almost like the monorail) and although it's broken up into 2 segment between Excalibur and NYNY it is free and there are no porn card "clappers" there like on the strip

    so you can get from Mandalay to Bellagio with almost no walking except the one break, and then there are over head bridges every light to go between the 2 sides

    oddly enough the MGM Grand is the anchor for the 11 Mlife props, but it's on the Caesar's side, LOL

    Well Caesars is the anchor for the CET properties and it is on the "MGM side".
