    I have been swamped with work over the past couple of months. To the point, where I just glance over threads on VMB.

    I hate not being able to get away because of work. Up until now, I cringe opening up emails, to see what type of offers they will send me next.

    At some point, I am going to have to accept one of these offers. I am looking at some time in April.

    Like a true degenerate, I'm hoping for an offer that I can't refuse and make 2 trips within a few months.

    As of now, my offers are 500fp, 250rc and a suite and show tickets. I am teetering on going early, with these offers.

    Another 200 in fp or rc and I would definitely jump on the next flight.

    I know, that I am not alone in when it comes to the Vegas jitters.

    What puts you over the edge?,

    Honestly not the casino/hotel offers but Airfare..Can't do $500 + from Florida this time of year.So many offers in the mail and can't use them..Give me a $250 fare again with short notice I'd jump on it.And work is always an issue,but once a month or so I could find a gap to handle it.

    Wish the Las Vegas powers that be would/could work out some deals with the carriers and that destination cheaper than others..(Without travel packages and red-eye flights)
    After weeks and weeks of planning a March LV trip..Ended up booking AC and that airfare on Spirit is $310..One checked bag and an aisle seat in the back.Used to get those flights for much less than half that...
    Taking a guess here Pressitagain that you can get a non-stop from Toronto for a reasonable price?

    When you factor in parking, arrival times, boarding times, wait times, baggage fees and travel costs. We drive to Flint or Detroit.

    We can save over $200- $300 US per flight. Flights fluctuate from those places from 350 to 380 round trip. Much better IMO.

    Yes it is press...Just wishing some airline would seriously hook up with the Vegas promo people (What Happens in Vegas etc) and offer some discounted flights or something..Vegas has to realize that people from the East coast will not spend whatever amount it takes to get there.Certainly limited my trip from two to one this year no matter if better incentives are coming from the hotels.Sucks.East coast casinos love that,but still can't beat the Sportsbook appeal vegas has. (Legal wise..Nj keeps hitting a roadblock and the same people (Judge ?) involved)
