Hi! Some quick questions, I used search and browsed for awhile, but didn't find quality answers specific to our situation! Any help is very much appreciated. Girlfriend and I have booked tickets to Vegas for mid-May (16-22), but will be checking out Friday morning and heading to the Grand Canyon until we return Sunday night. Our loyalty balances are roughly 30,000 and 126,00 though I can bump up the 30,000 easily before then. We're intending on staying at the Vdara and have a standard MLife account. We may grab a Hyatt credit card before then which would bring us to Pearl status. 1) Is a BOGO 7-day Monorail pass worth the point redemption? This is our first time in Vegas and we'd like to check out quite a few of the casinos on the strip. 2) Can/should I redeem both the exclusive rates reward and the 25% off reward for mid-week stays? 3) The promotional calendar has the 16th, 17th, and 18th highlighted but not the 19th, which would be our checkout date. Is this an issue? 4) Does the 25% off rate apply to the already-discounted rates found on MLife's website? If so, is that a valid strategy for booking 3 nights at the Vdara? It looks like the Exclusive Rate Reward is $89 midweek, whereas MLife's discounted rate on the website shows $133/night avg. I'm assuming that both rates do NOT include $35 in tax/resort fees. 5) Aside from trying to score the cheapest 3-nights we can at the Vdara (unless you have a better recommendation...we'd like to be near the center of the strip, but slightly off-strip is ok), the plan is to use coins for free buffets. I read that there used to be rewards for TWO-free buffets instead of 2-for-1 or One-Free. Are those gone? Any insights would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for any replies.
