    I counted up all my free room comps today and if I used them all back-to-back, I could stay in Las Vegas for free for over 3 weeks. Here's how it breaks down:

    3 free nights @ Orleans, El Cortez, The D, Golden Gate, Four Queens, MSS, and Venetian/Palazzo = 21 nights

    2 free nights @ LVH and Cosmopolitan = 4 nights

    Total = 25 nights!

    One of these days, I'm going to piggyback all those offers and stay for 3 and half weeks. The only downside would be changing hotels that many times. I didn't even mention the all free food & free play! Yes, someday....someday....

    I don't know if I could handle that many changes! Though I am going to be piggybacking 3 hotels for the 6 days I'm there in March. It'll be a new experience for me.

    I piggyback most the time.
    It's only a pain when you hit that time
    where it might take up a half day of your time.
    Say when "Oh, we're sorry, rooms won't be ready
    for an hour or so."
    .
    You packed + left the last hotel -- grabbed a cab or car --
    travel time -- parked -- waited in a long check in line --
    rooms aren't available -- stow your luggage -- waste some
    time in the casino or eat --- come back --- rooms still
    aren't ready ( Unless you want a room looking at air ducts or
    construction noise ) --
    .
    That's when you feel you wasted your valuable VEGAS time.
    But that's doesn't happen often.

    Here is one way we avoided the rooms not ready issue.

    Hotel A for Sun-Tues, checkout on Wed
    Hotel B for Tue-Fri

    We are actually double booked for Tues night. Leave hotel A late afternoon, early evening on Tues since we have the room till Wed anyways. Depending on where that hotel is, we might go by there during our mid day walk to see if a room is ready or not.

    I'm trying this for the first time next month. I have MSS Sun - Tues (checkout Wed), the Riv Tues - Fri, and MGM Wed - Friday. Since they're all on different programs I'm taking advantage of all the freeplay, free food, and show tickets they're offering. I'm really hoping it doesn't end up being a PITA.
