    My Trip Report

    We’re two young college kids looking to get away from our busy school schedules for a fun trip to Vegas. We found a pretty amazing deal for round trip flights for less than $99 each so we booked a couple months back. I’ve never done a live trip report before, but I decided to give it a try!


    Here is a rough schedule, though things are probably going to change:


    Schedule:


    28th

    Arrive to Vdara (check in, etc).

    Hamburgers

    Mandalay Bay Aquarium

    Show

    Taco Bell Cantina after show (depends on how hungry we are)?

    29th

    Wicked Spoon

    Downtown Vegas or north strip

    Buy 48 hour monorail tickets

    Bellagio Fountains and Gellato

    30th

    The Park

    Pool

    Explore strip

    Harvest

    Dinner reservations at Sage

    31st

    Ramsay’s for Lunch

    Rio and Tin Cup Nachos

    Rhumbar cigars

    Leave for airport by 7pm

    Fly home 8:30-9:45


    To help make this more affordable we’re using tons of MyVegas rewards which are below:


    Rewards


    C:

    vdara breakfast 7,500

    Bellagio Gelato 2,500

    Bogo shark reef: 12,500

    Comp cocktail bellagio 7,000

    Coffee Bogo Sombalatte Monte Carlo 2,500

    MGM Margs


    Total: 37,000



    J:

    Vdara 2 for 1 cocktails: 4,000

    Shark reef: 12,500

    Monorail: 11,000

    Comp cocktail bellagio 7,000


    Total: 34,500


    We also have the LVA rewards book.


    We’re not rich, still paying for school. My budget for the whole trip is about $1,000 and her budget is around $500. We hope to have fun though! We somehow manage to do a ton with coupons and savings. This will be our third trip to Vegas in 3 years together.

    Got bumped out of security and had to do it all over again because I forgot to empty water out of my CamelBak. Oops.

    Spending some time at The Club at SJC, love this Sapphire reserve card.

    This is fun. I love picture reports. That's the best sight - the slot machines in the airport. That's when you KNOW you're there.
