    Yes you can. You may want to put it on your card before checking out. Generally, most of the buffets give you 24 hours to use the reward.

    Yup have done this a couple of times. When we have late flights as well. It's a good way to kill time.

    When we went to the Mlife desk they asked when we were going to use it and we said today or tomorrow and that was it. Like Emmas said just get it loaded before checking out.

    Do I have to book the buffet at the hotel desk? I am staying at Mirage but can I try a different hotel buffet? And if I can will I load it at Mirage or at the other casino?

    Sorry one more question, can I use the buffet during a myvegas comp stay? I actually have 1 night comp and paying for the other 2 days but wondering if I can use the buffet on the first night which is a comp night.

    Yes, you have to redeem it at the player's club desk in whichever hotel the reward is for. So, if you get a buffet for Bellagio while staying at the Mirage, you will need to go to the Bellagio desk.

    And you can use the buffet reward on any day you are checked into the hotel.

    The myvegas rewards are totally independent as far as I'm aware so it is fine if you stay in the same hotel, or a completely different hotel as they will all get added onto your players card and you can redeem within 24 hours. You don't need to be staying at the same place and it is fine to use during a comp stay as they do not link them together :) Its just the usual limits that apply (3 rewards in 30 days I think?)

    It doesn't apply in this particular case, but I think Excalibur does require that you actually stay there for the free buffets rather than just any Mlife property. My friend was staying at Mandalay and they would not honor it. Not sure if this applies to any of the other properties.

    I just looked over the terms of a few of their buffet rewards and can't find that clause in there. Unless they toss that under Management Reserves All Rights, I'd probably dispute it with a supervisor if they told me that.

    Missed the line above. One Night stay at Ex. is required.

    Ahh. I was looking more at the higher prices ones and missed that completely. It looks like they have cheaper ones that require the Excalibur stay and more expensive ones that don't have that requirement.

    As I remember, when you look at the various offer on the myVegas site, some have the image of a key on the picture of the offer. When the key appears it means you must be a guest of the hotel in order to redeem that offer.

    Just another piece of info. I got the BOGO breakfast buffet at the Mirage. That reward can be used for breakfast or lunch.

    There seems to be some variation in the way each offer is displayed. It appears only Excalibur requires an Excalibur stay, but they don't put it in the description, only when you hover over the thumbnail do you see it. The rest of the "key icon" awards require an MGM Resorts property stay, not a hotel specific stay. Mirage doesn't use the key icon on their buffet rewards, but calls it out in the description. I guess they expect us to read carefully.

    At the risk of threadjack (Not worth a new thread IMO). Is there a stark difference in quality of buffet at Mirage vs Bellagio? We had he Cravings years ago and it felt it was ok. Had Wicked Spoon in December and came away unimpressed. Need to use my LPs.

    show time on reward 7-3. Most breakfast are written that way.

    Whether key or not, ALWAYS read page 2 of reward for terms. It is in black and white what you can do with reward and what is required, whether stay or not. There are a couple (Aria) that do not have key but need stay

    If you ate at Wicked Spoon and came away unimpressed, I doubt you'd enjoy Mirage or Bellagio. In our opinion Wicked Spoon is better than both of those.

    Also, we think that both Mirage and Bellagio are pretty decent buffets (not great, not terrible) but both were much better a few years ago. They've both gone downhill. Mirage does have free beer and wine though so that's a bonus.

    As far as between the two, we prefer Mirage over Bellagio, but neither will likely blow your socks off.
