Hit The Strip

Las Vegas: The ultimate last second getaway (Part I)

There are so many different ways to create an exciting Vegas adventure, but catching a last second flight to Sin City gets the mind racing and blood flowing in a completely unique way. Jumping from a cozy lunch at your favorite corner spot to walking into the lobby at Caesars just hours later brings out the type of ‘anything can happen’ mentality that’s simply hard to duplicate. The best part is the trip doesn’t have to cost a last second price, if you know the right cards to play along the way…

The first
step to finding last second luxury is becoming a rewards member of the two main
players on the Vegas strip – MGM and Caesars. Registering for Mlife and Total
Rewards cards provides all sorts of perks, from discounted hotel rooms and
attractions to free buffets and slot machine credits. You’ll earn points on
room stays and other purchases, and many times just being a member unlocks
extra discounts at almost every hotel on the strip. The mandatory resort fees
can add up, but the reward apps always have deeply discounted rates on many
well-known hotels and resorts.

Walking your way up and down Las Vegas Boulevard can be a great workout, but there is a fun and convenient way to breeze from the MGM Grand up to SLS in less than 15 minutes. The monorail runs until 2am most nights, and stops at every major casino on the east side of the strip. If you buy a ticket in advance, unlimited rides for 3 days will cost you just $23.

There are plenty of other ways to save on dining and entertainment, even at the last second. Part 2 of the Vegas blog has more tips coming soon.
