    Heading to Vegas next week and I don't know what to use my points for. We're staying comped at Mandalay Bay, so I don't think the free play is an option? Only food place really is camelot at Excalibur. Help!

    With no shows and limited food options right now, there isn't much to chose from. I don't even think the monorail is running yet. Perhaps you could look into using MyKonami freeplay, or tickets to Mandalay's Shark Reef exhibit? I see a couple 2-for-1 snacks, free pastries, free coffee type rewards on there, but I suppose that depends on if those places are actually open. I would recommend claiming some rewards that appeal to you before you go to Vegas; you can almost always get a refund if you don't use it. (Up to 5 refunds in 30 days, at last check)

    Camelot is one of the better rewards, and I'd definitely get the $100 off $200 if there are a couple of you. Can always load up on cocktails if you're under the number.

    Have see the $50 credit at one of the NYNY bars available the last few weeks, too.

    Yes both Camelot Steakhouse and NYNY drinks credit are a must if freeplay isn’t an option. 2 for one Toms beers are also a great option if available.

    just don’t do all three in the same day like I did last time. Like @Marky147 says, you may be under on the spend and need more cocktails at the steakhouse.....ended up pretty messy at Zumanity afterwards!

    I was just there this past weekend and i used the Bogo coaster and 1 coaster pass to get 2 free rides at the big Apple coaster at the NYNY. Just keep in mind most resorts have combined their cashier stations with MLife. So don’t think they’re closed if the mlife desk appears dark.

    $100 of $200 is not longer available.. now it’s $100 of $250 but costs fewer points.

    Ahh, cheers.

    Well, I suppose a couple more glasses of wine never hurt anyone :D

    All of the above suggestions are good. If you really want to burn points you can download the My Konami app and buy some Konami freeplay. You can use it without a paid hotel stay. It sez you have to use it on Konami machines, but I’ve used it on others. Just don’t win a progressive!

    Toms Urban is actually a comp voucher so even if you don’t drink beer its good, you can order whatever. It’s even better during happy hour!

    @carolineno is right. If you don't mind spending 100k lp per $25 MyKONAMI freeplay then that is a good way to burn lp's. I have 4 stacked for me, my parents, and partner for my upcoming trip. I also noticed that these work on more than just konami slots also.

    Also taking a page out of @MCann book and getting 2-1 gelato to burn express comps.

    I need to use some MyVegas points, I just kept saving them all this time. I'm at 1.9 mil right now and really don't play it much anymore. Might require several trips.
