    ok so i booked a couple of comps for the 8th-10th feb at Mandalay Bay and 13th - 16th at excalibur through mlife

    i understand the rooms are free except for resort fee but its showing a total for tax payable on the room cost
    any insight would be appreciated

    If you're looking on the mlife website...the mlife site can be a bit glitchy.

    My comped rooms at Aria always show price due, even though it's comped. (Yet I never owe.)

    Traditionally comps aren't taxed because it's a percentage of dollar amount billed. 9% of zero is zero.

    I bet it's am mlife glitch....if worried, call and ask.

    I hope you get good news!
