    In your opinion, are any of the rewards underpriced that are basically a must-get? Which are your favorite to redeem when going to Vegas other than the buffets?

    IMHO, food is the only thing I know that I HAVE to do, and there is nothing on the myVegas rewards menu that I have to have.

    BOGO at NFI is a $35 voucher. Can't go wrong with that.

    That is a good deal. We've used the $25 dinner credit before, but it cost double the BOGO. Good info!

    If I have a reward to spare I like the Carnegie cheesecake for 6K.

    My points I will be using on food as well. Provided it doesnt require a stay as well. Seems I saw a couple that said a stay was required as well. May splurge and get a free night in one of the nicer properties. Guess for the price of resort fee not a bad deal since i just play freebie and dont buy chips.

    We did that last year after we saw a few of the rewards we wanted required a stay. Weighed the value and went ahead and booked the room. We ended up not using the NYNY credit, but still exceeded the cost of the fees, so well worth it.

    $75 tender for $150 spend is a good deal. Done it a number of times and it is a decent steak house for half price. Last time my buddy got one of the more expensive ($80 for 4 ounces?) japanese Wagyu filet and said it was one of the best he ever had.

    We didnt see the bar top specials menu that had a filet for like $120, might have been hard to resist trying while splurging anyways. Walked out with a $250 tab minus the $75.

    I'm looking forward to cashing in my free (!) 300k LPs on the VIP steak dinner at Hippodrome Casino in London. 3 course meal, 2 glasses of champgne and £50/$65 in chips.
    Seems decent value.

    Some already mentioned: BOGO at Nine Fine Irishmen as it's a $35 voucher that's useable solo if desired

    Tender $75

    Some others:

    If you're not picky and just want a decent, clean room: the Luxor and NYNY room comps. 1/6th or less of the Aria cost for example

    The Aria lunch and dinner buffets (but they require a stay at an MGM property)

    The Mirage buffets aren't bad, either

    If you are travelling with family the 2-for-1 buffets are a steal. 15,500 for Aria dinner, 9000 for Mandalay Bay and half that for lunch/brunch? Crazy good. These also don't require staying at an MGM property

    Zumanity for 28k is a phenomenal deal, imo.

    We stayed at Aria last fall. Didn't want to do a buffet and decided to try the 2-for-1 Breakfast/Lunch at Market Cafe at Vdara. Had a really good cooked to order breakfast, which we prefer over buffets. Only 7500 points. Well worth it. We will be using this offer again very soon.

    The show rewards in general are pretty great these days, since unlike before you get to choose your own seats when you purchase them.

    As long as you book well ahead of time, you can get really great seats for free (like I did during my last trip for Fantasy and Zumanity).

    It may not be spectacular price wise, but the wife and I always enjoyed using the Times Square Bar tab, especially in year's past when it used to be $75

    If you like sushi, the $50 off of Rice and Co is awesome. You have to purchase $100 before tax so my wife and I got two appetizers, three sushi rolls, seaweed salad and a desert. Was even better that i had a $60 hit on a slot downstairs that prety much paid for the dinner after the coupon!

    Is this the same as what's currently listed as "2-for-1 entrees at NFI"? So it doesn't have to be used on food?

    the $35 voucher is the bogo for 17,500 lp. Yes you can use on drinks. Good for happy hour also. If there are 2 of you and each has a reward, you can each use 1 for $70 off (2 $35 vouchers)

    Thanks - it doesn't mention $35 anywhere on the Reward page just two entrees. This is definitely the right Reward?
