    My Trip Report

    Back to Vegas Dec 30th - Jan 3rd but not really participating in the NYE activities since the twins will be with us. This trip will be my wife and the twins staying at Bally's.

    The main reason for the trip is to reap all the 7* benefits before the Jan 31st deadline and while the twins are out of their pre-k school. Originally set up for the NYE offer of $500 but switched to the TV offer Jan 2-6.

    comps:
    7* airfare up to $1200
    7* hotel folio $500
    7* celebration dinner $500
    TV offer - 65" and play for a 86" TV worth $2800-$3000

    Trip outline:
    12/30 hotel about 5:30, Vons deliver 7-9, play a bit and bed
    12/31 pick up rent car, Carlito's burritos for brunch, naps, Circus Circus Midway and drop the car, table games Ballys and Cosmo
    1/1 Spa for my wife as I watch the kiddos, Bacchanal brunch, and BLT for dinner
    1/2 play to get the TCs for the TV :woohoo:
    1/3 heading home.

    Normal cast of characters won't be joining us this time but hope they and all of you are following along.

    So last minute decision to pay for early bird check in was a $200 loss. I ended up with B7-10 which is after the family boarding. I originally didn't get it because early bird tended to be a dozen or so before the family boarding. Wish I had stuck with my earlier plan. Oh well got the first loss of the trip out of the way.

    Goal for the TV offer is the LG 86 inch Nano Cell 4K ThinQ AI Full Array Smart TV. Looks like almost 76" wide and 127 pounds with the stand. Hope to set it on top of a buffet and not wall mount. We will see, provided I get the TCs. Currently I have a 2007 46" early tech flat screen which has the HDMI ports out maybe due to a power surge. This will be a huge step up for us.

    I believe this is it.

    Car is packed and just waiting. Wake the twins up in a few and head to the airport. Van is packed and you would think we are staying much more than just 4 days.

    Good luck! How many TC's does it take to upgrade the TV?
     
    Hopefully there's another trip before this one
    My wish for an earlier trip came through.

    Thanks all we are in the limo now with our traveling circus. Four check suitcases, one carryon suitcase of games and stuff, three backpacks and a stroller. Picked up two car seats at baggage claim and got it all into the limo. Wish it was a D limo with drinks

    Flight was great and weather here is really nice. Maybe 45 degrees

    I need 6000 TVs between Jan 2 6:00 am and Jan 3rd at 11:00 am. It goes longer but we are leaving. The first two days are double TCs so I need 3000
