    I wanted to share my rewards for my 4 night July MGM trip. My goal was to redeem only zero cost rewards (i.e. no purchase required to use a reward).

    My Account: LP Cost - 215K
    $50 Freeplay @ MGM
    Free drink at Bellagio
    Entry for 2 into Minus5
    Entry for 2 into the Foundation Room (not subject to 3-in-30)

    Wife's Account: LP Cost - 28K
    Free drink at Bellagio
    Free drink at Mixx
    Free Pastry at Aria

    I am still farming LPs for my wife and hope to change out one of her vouchers for another $50 free play. I am only at 20K LP though so I have a ways to go.

    Any other suggestions for zero cost reward combinations? We have a suite booked at the MGM so 1 free night in a basic room is a no-go.

    Minus 5 is kinda meh... kind of a novelty bar.

    I'd use the 25k points towards either the $50 Monte Carlo dining credit, or a buffet (2 buffets if you have the LPs). Although the $50 MC credit isn't completely free, it can be pretty close. :)

    Going from 20k to the 125k required for $50 free play is going to be tough if you're in the early stages of the game on your wife's account.

    If you fall short on the second $50 FP you could still get the $25. I like donfairplay's buffet suggestion too.

    For some reason the MGM $25 FP reward is only 32,500. If you got the $25 and the $10 the total LP cost would only be 42,500. I don't know why the cost of their $25 reward is less than everyone else, but it is.

    I also vote for the Monte Carlo $50 credit - I have used it at Dragon Noodle, which is an excellent Chinese restaurant, and it covered almost everything - dinner for two including entrees, a large side order of fried rice. The bill ended up being about $10 after the credit was applied.

    The challenge now is finding no cost rewards while NOT staying at an MLife property...Cirque tickets are still the best deal by far, followed by Bellgio/Mirage buffets.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    I like the $10 & $25 freeplay combo instead of 1 $50...more attainable.

    My wife and I do not care for buffets, but they are a good option for a no-cost reward.

    I'll look at the MC $50 credit.

    I was really hoping they brought back the picnic by the pool valid at the MGM (bucket of beer and poolside appetizer for 25K LP). That would be a 100% green light redemption for me.
