Friday Win!!!

July 31st, 2015 at 09:42 am

I've been in a mood lately, but today just got better!

I play a game called MyVegas to score freebies for our upcoming trip. While the rewards have certainly deteriorated, there are still a few worth playing for. Most players can redeem 3 for MGM rewards. My mom occasionally buys chips to support the game and has 4 rewards. Awhile back, she'd managed to get ahold of the Beatles Love Cirque show ticket.

I've been trying unsuccessfully to get it as you have to luck out and be there right when they refresh or it goes too quickly. I started following a refresh thread and managed to get it today!

So far, we've redeemed 2 Beatles Love tickets (1 each), 2 Thunder from Down Under tickets (1 each...and certainly not something I'd pay for, but a fun novelty experience for free), 2 buffet passes at Monte Carlo (my mom).

We each have one remaining. My mom currently has a NYNY room voucher, but she's probably returning it as we need two nights and can most likely find a decent deal elsewhere. She wants to get a $50 freeplay. I'm much lower on points. If I earn enough, my options will be 2 more buffet passes, $50 dining credit to MC (where we're staying), or 2 Shark Reef Admission passes (again, not something I'm willing to pay for, but would like to see).

We may also redeem food rewards for House of Blues or Wolfgang Puck (or even both!).

I'm debating an Entertainment book as we will be venturing to Fremont St. this time and they have a bunch of $5 matchplay offers.

Operation Frugal Vegas is coming together!!

    Wow, that's amazing what you can rack up. Might go there early next year, may need to look into rewards.

  3. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Are you getting these rewards by playing some kind of game online?

    CCF, if you're planning to do myVegas or Social Rewards, you should start soon as they take time to build up.

    FrugalTexan, I do two rewards programs: myVegas is a Facebook/mobile app that lets you play slots to earn loyalty points which can be redeemed for real rewards at partners like MGM properties, Wolfgang Puck, House of Blues, and Station Casinos. Some people choose to buy chips to support the game, but I just play with the chips from the game. If I run out, I run out. The other one I play is Social Rewards which lets you watch videos/share stuff on social media to earn points that can be transferred to cash for Caesar's properties.

    Ok, I'll have to remember to ask you about those again if I ever decide to do a Las Vegas trip. Smile

    Thanks for the additional details. Too busy in August, but maybe I can start in September. Smile

    I am in Vegas this fall for a week for a work conference. I have got to start doing this to earn some free things to do! Thanks for the tip!

  8. Kiki Says:

    Which app is the myVegas one? There are 9 showing up!

    Kiki, it's myVegas slots. It's a blue background with a big V and then slots under it for the icon. Let me know if you still have trouble finding it.
