Mark’s Las Vegas Deals

Mark’s Las Vegas Deals is now live.
It is my new hotel and show promotions page. Every week I will be updating the page with my top deals/suggestions for rooms and shows. I will have additional promos and deals on the Rooms and Shows pages.

Nothing will change here at Mark’s Las Vegas.  I’ve realized a shift in my audience, though, and felt the new site was a way to help address that. Mark’s Las Vegas was originally intended to help gamblers who received comped or casino rate rooms and conventioneers who had many of their room decisions already handled. As my site and audience grew, I discovered more readers were casual/recreational visitors who didn’t gamble enough to get comped rooms but were still interested in getting the best value (not just the cheapest room). I regularly get questions about good room rates and hotel offers from people who are not focused on gambling. The new site grew out of that.

 

myVEGAS adds Carnival Cruise Rewards

myVEGAS has added Carnival Cruise Line as a Partner.

Carnival Cruise Rewards are limited to 3 per player in a 90 day rolling period (similar to  the MGM Rewards 3 in 30 Days limitation, but this is 3 in 90). They are also limited to one Reward per sailing (which makes sense, since they are only offering cruises, not add-ons).

The Rewards are good for one room with 2 people. Rewards must be booked within 14 days (the cruise itself can be much further in the future – right now, dates through July 2018 are available)

 

myVEGAS 2-night Comp Room Rewards added for the Summer

myVEGAS has added 2-night Comp Room Rewards for the Summer. The dates are almost identical for each resort offering the 2-night comp, but there are a few inconsistencies. Also,  Aria, Bellagio and Mandalay Bay are not offering the 2-night Reward.

Excalibur: Two Comp Nights: Summer 2017 Dates: 
July 4-6, 11-12, 23-24
August 1-3, 6-10, 20-23, 28-31

myVEGAS adds many new Partnerships – some in Australia!

myVEGAS has added  many new Rewards Partners.  The most notable are the expanded MGM offerings like MGM National Harbor near Washington DC and The Borgata in Atlantic City and the new Australian Partners Bankstown Sports Club and Uniquely Aussie.

Other recent additions include MSC Cruises, Gray Line tours, Couples Resorts and  T-Mobile Arena .  The MGM based partners continue the 3 in 30 days limitation on their Rewards.  The other Partners have their own limitations, but many are simply one per myVEGAS  player.
