So, I paid (bought) enough chips to get to VIP level and redeem (close out) my account with a "custom". For 5M LPs, I will be getting a $1000 mLife gift card. I will have about 400K left, enough for a two night stay in case I need a "no obligation" room after 9/30. (mLifes year starts 10/1 and runs through 9/30. It's been a fun 4 years, at the start mLife allowed myVegas to participate in the HGS (Holiday Gift Shoppe), and I was able to get $1800 worth of HGS points each year, but they discontinued that. Now that they've quantified what it takes to get to VIP level 7, and I've quantified what the LPs are worth, I think I'll keep the $$$ for "real" gambling. So, next week, I'm taking my myVegas Host and her boss (my original host) to lunch at Julian Serrano's Tapas as a "goodbye" lunch.
