    Airline is the same price and won't include resort fee's

    Haven't been to Vegas in 3 years, so I don't have any offers on Total Rewards

    Would calling in be better than online?

    May 20-23rd

    Sign into Total Rewards and see what the calendar shows up. Calling them will only get you what rates they show online for you. If you can find lower rates elsewhere, make sure to try Flamingo's price match guarantee.

    I've been watching room rates for the last couple months for my friends and I've yet to find anywhere cheaper than directly through the total rewards/flamingo website.

    Hotwire runs great deals on all the center strip casinos from time to time, scored the Linq for $34/night last week.... TR website also has good weekday rates but the weekend rates tend to be higher than hotwire in my opinion

    I've found you have to check hotwire at least every day and hope your property is on the sale list. Past three days Westgate has been 33-35 through May,, found Paris for $70 a few days ago,, Southpoint was $45,, Downtown Grand $30,, and don't forget everything depends on which week your looking at. Big convention week and rates are much higher...good luck

    If you are a TR member log on to your account (doesn't matter if you have points or not) and you'll get a better deal than if you check rates without logging in.

    Not the case, I went to my view offers and nothing was there. It was $10 dollar more when logged in vs not logged in

    Hmmmm I've never seen that before. It's not surprising there are no offers but I've never seen higher rates for someone not signed in vs. signed in. I'm not doubting you at all, I've just never seen it.

    I went through SmarterVegas to book for June. Logging into total rewards is more expensive for me. Not just a couple of bucks, it was a couple hundred. I have found my room cheaper and Flamingo has given me that price every time I called with zero hassle.

    Logged in or not logged in my prices for TR seems the exact same!
    One tip, sometimes you can get some money off if you type in the code INSIDER
    All in capitals.

    On occasion I have also seen higher prices logged in than not.....rarely and possibly a glitch...or due to the fact my rates on the calendar seem to change minute to minute sometimes.

    If your travel companion has a TR card, make sure you are entering that in the companion field. Can add a discount sometimes.

    I'm assuming that was the whole stay, not per night
