    I have a Vegas trip coming up soon and I need to figure out what 3 rewards I’m going to use (I have 4 rewards total and used 1 for a 2-night comp stay at the Aria).

    I also have a 2 night paid stay at Vdara, although they’re not consecutive with the Aria stay. What I was wondering is, can I still get the $25 and $50 free play rewards for Aria and have them work? If I buy them and get denied, can I buy different things or am I out of luck because I’ll be in Vegas by then?

    I’m mostly interested in gaming and food in that order. I’m looking to spend as many LPs as possible as I won’t be able to go back to Vegas for some time. Should I just do the Konami slots and a couple buffets? What buffets that have rewards available are best?

    Thanks.

    It's a case of some have had luck, and some been told no for the free play rewards.

    I was able to use the 25/50/100 on an 8 night stay (3 comped) last summer.

    I usually just stack my wallet up with things and you can redeem (up to 5? i think) if you don't want them all.

    Excalibur $100 Camelot is good value, and the food is good.

    Last time I ate a buffet in Vegas was Bellagio in 2008, so I'm not much help there :p

    If you have enough points you can buy 5 more rewards than you plan on using. That way, if you are denied claiming a certain reward you can claim another reward and just cancel the unused rewards upon your return.

    This all goes on the premise that you are allowed to cancel 5 rewards in a 30 day period like I did a year ago.

    Bellagio, Aria, and Mandalay Bay Buffets are the best IMO
    We just went in Oct and I thought the food was really good at all those! Esp. since it was Free!

    In the past I have done the Excalibur, MGM Grand, Montecarlo, and Luxor and did not like any of them (but everyone is diff.)

    The Free play rules have recently changed so I would check at an Mlife desk about those questions.

    Also the BOGO Crepes at New York New York were amazing!

    I have also heard great reviews about the night flight Maverick helicopter ride! If you can snag that reward when it gets loaded I heard thats awesome!

    Did the BOGO for Aria dinner buffet 2 weeks ago, and it has vaulted above Bellagio for me. Maybe it was the stone crab claws. Can't go wrong with the Wolfgang Puck meals. We did Lupo for a dinner at Mandalay Bay last year, and did his place at MGM this year. MB was truly BOGO, but the MGM one was buy an entree and two drinks to get a free entree. WORTH IT! I had a $40 skirt steak, and my brother got at $39 double cut pork chop. His beer was $10, and my wine was $18. Throw in a $5 bread plate (so good, but too filling), tax, and tip...$101

    There are cases on which people had claimed the 25/50 when they're paying for some nights as part of a comp stay (just like your case) the other "safer" alternative in case you dont have a ton of LPs is to get 2-25dlls freeplays from Konami, they're 100k lps each. You'll be sacrificing 25 dlls from the 25/50 but those are 100% sure you can redeem them. If you do have a ton of LPs.. buy the 4 rewards (25/50 regular and 25/25 konamis) try using first the 25/50.. if you succeed great!! If not, redeem the konamis..

    Its weird seeing dlls as I guess an acronym for USD/$. Never seen that used besides in Mexico a few years back.

    I am from Sweden, so I am probably missing something. Should I start using that?
