    I have never taken Wynn up on their offers but I am thinking of using their latest offer for 3 complimentary nights. I prefer to use my debit card over credit card so two questions . . .

    1) When I call VIP services to make the reservation, will they require a card to book the room (Again, it is 100% comped)?

    2) What is the situation with using a debit card or cash for incidentals? Is there any way around it completely at Wynn?

    Thanks for the help.

    Since this appears to be a marketing comp you may be charged for resort fees. They will want a card on file for incidentals. When using a debit card your cash availability will be restricted by Wynn's $150 or whatever a day and the hold may take a week to 10 days to remove. Unlike a credit card.
    Perhaps you can give a cash deposit in lieu of a card and have no charging privledges. However, then you will not get any further benefits or waived food or beverage if your play were to warrant it.
    Personally I just don't get why people use debit rather than CC for such travel related necessities. But it's your choice. Good luck.

    Just got back last week on this same offer. They did want CC and locked up 150.00 but released it on my card the day we checked out. My impression was that it wasn't optional. Didn't ask about debit card but as previously stated, usually takes longer to get a release done on debit card. There was no charge whatsoever on our CC for the three days, including no resort fee.

    you won't need to give them a card when you book the offer, only at check-in. always give them a credit card to put the hold on at check-in. you can always give them your debit card to run the charges at checkout.

    This is not exactly true. I just booked an offer from the Wynn and they required a card over the phone for a deposit. I then got a newer, better offer from Casino Marketing, and when I switched, they told me that they didn't need a card, but the other offer did so they refunded my deposit.

    Shifter is just such a bigshot that they don't need HIS card. :)

    that must not have been a comp offer. sure if you're booking a discounted offer, they'll want a card. but i've never heard of anybody needing a credit card to book a comp offer.

    You have now. :) It was two free nights and discounted weekends. I don't if that is what you call a comp offer or not, but I do. :thumbsup:

    Wynn does not like debit card users. The fees are double if you do not use a credit card. When I checked in at a three night stay (comped) they wanted $300 a night if using a debit card or $900 in cash. I don't use credit cards so to me this sucks to be penalized in this way.

    Another one!

    Imagine my surprise to open the mail today and have another 3 free nights at the Wynn with 300.00 free play! I thought this was a one time offer and we just got back three weeks ago. This one is valid till March.

    Thats the mystery to me. I may have given them 1200 to 1500 dollars total. This is from their marketing company
