I just posted this on my blog:

Wynn/Encore Deal Alert

Preview:
The standard Deluxe King rooms at the Wynn and Encore are being offered at $109 plus bonus freebies on selected dates in November and December 2015. September and October also have some decent nights priced at $129. Book a minimum of 3 nights at this price to receive $100 free slot play and 2 buffet passes as well. As usual, don't forget about the $29 resort fee and 12% taxes.

I am a red card member due to my half hour play $25 pai gow around 6 years ago. I actually may use that offer this October, which for me will be $129, $129, $219 as third night is a Friday night. If I prepay I can get $20 off each night, and for me since I am such a low roller I don't think I will accumulate any meaningful comps, it may make sense. I figure the $100 resort credit basically equals the $29 per night resort fees.

Awesome! I'm glad I could help someone with the info! Just to clarify, it's not a $100 resort credit (applicable for any charges to the room) but a slot play credit; but you're right, the $100 value basically evens out the $29X3=$97 resort fee.

29 x 3 is 87. (just for the record...lol)

I don't want to rain on the parade. I guess it's a good deal. Lower than Wynn's regular rates. BUT, this is traditionally a slow time in Vegas. December is the slowest time of the year. Many shows in Vegas shut down and restaurants shut down or reduce hours. The only thing that occurs in Vegas in Dec is early December is the Rodeo thingy, which is a boom for certain hotels, but not the higher end places like Wynn, so for them the whole month is slow. I think if I was planning a trip for that times, I would check out the other properties. You are likely to find reduced rates and maybe even better deals all over.

Haha, you're right! I'll have to ask at check in about that! I didn't do the math, I had $97 on the brain because that's what's printed on my confirmation as the Resort Fee line item.

Yes, lots of other hotels have great pricing in Nov and Dec! I've been wanting to try Encore and was supposed to be booking a trip in January (for my birthday!) but with the steady calendar of conventions in Jan, there were no openings for "cheap nights". So I convinced DH that December pricing was better and lined up my mom to stay with the kids. ;) I have all kinds of parameters that I have to get to line up just right in order to go to Vegas. If I had my way, I'd go at the drop of a hat any time a hotel I liked had good prices!

Prior to seeing this $109 rate with bonus perks, the cheapest I've seen Encore rooms is $129 without any freebies AND you had to pre-pay (not sure of the cancellation policy on pre-pay bookings).

I've been keeping an eye on Mandalay Bay prices as an other option. Their selection of cheapest dates are not as extensive as W/E and even though MB is cheaper than W/E, my opinion is that the overall quality of the experience is lower. For myself, I'd rather pay a bit more and have a higher quality experience (that's new to me) than go back to a place I've been before. :)

FYI, the best pricing I've seen for MB (for us regular folk), is their Facebook offer which includes $75 F&B credit and minimum is lower at 2 nights. (Is there a way to post photos in this forum?)

Two dates in Nov at $58, 10 dates in Dec at $58. They do have pretty good weekend rates though so if I needed to stay on a weekend, I'd stay at MB. Cheapest weekend is $88 Dec 18-19. Dec 25-26 is $106 (I can understand why it would be difficult to fill rooms right after Xmas), Nov 20-10 is $112, the weekend after T-giving is $128 + $112 and Dec 11-12 is $120 + $112.

Interesting. I haven't seen this offer come through my e-mail yet.

I'll be looking forward to the Wynn/Encore offers for my March 2016 trip. Typically they start to show up in the last week of November.

I actually just received the marketing email for this offer earlier this afternoon. Just happened to be on the website last night when I saw it. :)

I checked my Red Card account last night and the new offer has just come in. My offer is different from yours.

My offer runs from August until the end of the year. The nominal rate they're offering is $139 per night plus two free buffets with an extra $10 off if you go in the slow periods in November/December. More popular periods have increased rates.

Interesting. It looks to me like Wynn is making very targeted offers or they're coming from different groups within Wynn. Casino vs. marketing vs. room reservations.

This is the one that I got. I figured though, if I were to go in November/December there are way better deals to be had.

They brought this $109 room rate + perks offer back for February and March 2016. Other months from Jan-June have decent rates as well. I posted about it on my blog and have included screen caps of the date calendar.

Also, have a review pending of my first stay at Encore in December. Lots of pics of the room. Short preview - I loved it! :)
