I remember the days of (2 Mirage nights for 100LP and the resort fees were waived). Those days are long gone! I would not mind paying more LPs to get to a buffet if I am staying at a CET property, but it looks like the options for doing that are down only a few. In addition, the Mirage use to let you use the buffet reward all week, now it's Sun - Thurs. Oh well...... In better news, I was able to redeem 5 awards last trip.
