This report is also late, but not as late as the last one. My goal was to get it posted before my next trip. I made it with just hours to spare. This was my tenth visit to Las Vegas. I was looking at solo trip for December, but then my dear wife (DW) was able to accompany me when her sisters graciously split babysitting duties for our children. This was DW's eighth trip and our fourth trip together. I mostly play quarter video poker (VP) and $5 blackjack (BJ), DW plays slots but did join me for a few hands of BJ. We briefly considered going for New Year's Eve (NYE), but opted instead to go right in between Christmas and NYE. That meant we could see Jerry Seinfeld at Caesars Palace. We had seen him perform in Minneapolis shortly after we were married, and he had lots of wedding material from his own experiences. Now we were looking forward to hearing his take on parenting. My parents bought us the tickets for Christmas, and an American Express card gave us access to more seating options. Though cheaper than New Year's Eve, this was still an expensive time to travel, especially for December. Luckily I had an offer from the Mirage for $95, $95, $47, and $57, respectively, for Friday through Monday nights. We splurged on accepting an email upgrade offer to the Resort Tower King rooms for an extra $21 a night. We used Sun Country points for a single one-way ticket, and we paid for the rest. They have a great rewards program that lets you buy one-way tickets, and you can pool points among family or friends. During Thanksgiving week, I received another Mlife offer for any two nights (including weekends) at Mirage, MGM Grand, and the less expensive hotels. This was limited to a few weeks in December, excluding NYE, but it worked perfectly for our dates. So we got Friday and Saturday free, Sunday and Monday at a Pearl tier discount, $25 resort credit, and $10 Free Play (FP). We lost the upgrade, but were able to pay for a guaranteed late check-out. I signed up for the Total Rewards (TR) Visa with plenty of time to earn the $100 in Rewards Credits. We also both had TR credits from Social Rewards. We cashed in MyVegas points for $50 FP and $25 FP at Mirage for each of us, breakfast buffet for two at the Mirage, and two tickets to the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef. I also bought a pair of $25 FP cards for the Cosmopolitan, courtesy of a fellow VMBer. On my last trip, my brother had bought a copy of the American Casino Guide (ACG) but never used any of the coupons. We brought that along for DW, and I had a copy of the Las Vegas Advisor (LVA) booklet for me.
