I've never gambled at the Tropicana in Vegas, but have gambled at sister properties in CO and LA.

Received the following offer in the mail:

For Sept 1 to Dec 29:

5 night stay in best room available
$2,000 dining credit (that is not a typo)
$700 free slot play
$500 airfare

I have pretty much been wanting to avoid Vegas, but damn, this is hard to pass up. Anyone know what their VP looks like?

Damn that $2000 dining credit could have paid for our fall fling dinner

While I didn't make a typo here in the post, I do wonder if they made a typo in the mailer. That's a lot of food!

Question:

Use all at once dining credit or use as required.

2,000 over meals for five days is still rich but realistically you and a few family members could go through it.

$2,000 all in one meal is absolutely nuts.

Iím curious as to what restaurants theyíll even have open to spend $2,000 in. Iím guessing there wonít be much choice right away. Gonna be hard to spend 2K at the cafe.

Dining works out to $400 a day. When you think about it, $400 per day isn't much in terms of luxury dining.

I dont know what the high end dining is there, but consider this "possible prices" for dinner:

2 steaks $170
2 appetizers or desserts $36
2 cocktails $24
Total $230

Breakfast for two could be $50
Lunch for two could be $70

Add it up and that's $350.
Get something from room service and you're easily at $400.

Unfortunately I've had dinners that wiped out $500 dining credits at Caesars.

"All gaming and dining offers will be spread over total hotel nights offered. Resort fees may apply." Certainly reduces the attractiveness of the free play.

Given that I typically go to Vegas by myself, I think it's safe to say I couldn't even go through $400 in a day in food.

If you were a couple it would not be difficult at all to spend $400 a day on food and beverage. Alan's example I think is on the low side. Add a few more specialty cocktails ($20+) a few appetizers, port after dinner.... I can come close by myself! The free play and airfare is basically $1200 cash, add the value of the food, say $1,000?, and the value of a free room, say also $1,000 since it will probably be a suite? So over $3k easily to you in value. What do you play for them to want you this badly?
