Depending on how many gold chips you have, I think this is a pretty good reward:



We stayed on a Sunday/Monday (my myVegas) and a Tues/Wedn (Mrs Q's myVegas) a week ago. We had to pay the Resort Fee, which was $ 52.40 per night, if I recall correctly.

I have always wanted to stay at Bellagio, so that moves this off of the TO-DO list and onto the DONE list.

Personally, I prefer PARIS to BELLAGIO. I think it is just easier to do miscellaneous little things on the other side of the Strip, like popping into Walgreens for alcoholic supplies, grabbing a sandwich at the Earl of Sandwich in Planet Hollywood, etc, etc, etc. The quality of the room we got at each property was similar.

So generally speaking it seems like myVegas has been a desolate, Mad Max wasteland of decent rewards for the past few months.

With the EXCEPTION of.....

.....Hotel nights.

I have always wanted to stay at Cosmo or Aria or even Mandalay Bay. ( We are knee-deep in the Caesars Total Rewards Program, so most of our Nights in Vegas are spend at one of their properties ).

So for our next trip I got 2 nights at ARIA through myVegas, just paying the Resort Fee + Taxes. I'm happy with that. I had built up enough Gold Chips before the change to collecting them got tightened up so much.

My list of "Places I have Stayed at over the Years" is gonna go up a notch:

Stay tuned.

One problem is, a lot of the rewards aren't for Vegas.

Agreed, one of MANY problems. I'm not sure how their business model has lasted this long, we feel we have gotten a lot of value out of it in free shows over the years.

And now it looks like 2 Nts at ARIA or BELLAGIO was too good of a deal ? OR we are simply moving into the busier summer / vaccinated season and those offers went away for those reasons. Anyway, I don't see it anymore for 2 nights:



Using my account and Mrs Q's, we will be at ARIA 3 nights on our next trip.

Could just be Vegas is getting super busy again and they are tightening up the free MyVEGAS rooms.

I was there Memorial Day weekend and it felt like the busiest Iíve ever seen it. I literally had to stand there and watch a Pai Gow table at the MGM for over an hour before a seat opened up. (Turned out to be a very profitable session, so it was worth it!)

Anyway, you should definitely give Mandalay Bay a shot sometime. Definitely my favorite MLife property during pool season.

Yes, thanks for the tip. It is on my "list", slightly behind Red Rock.

OK, looks like it is official with this "reward", myVegas has jumped the SHARK.



"free appetizer with purchase of any entree".
