Daily Getaways Day 17 (Tuesday): More Good Vegas Packages

I got super lucky earlier in the Daily Getaways promotion and scored one of six packages at the Mirage.  It wasn’t cheap, but I am going to get way more than what I spent back in value from the package.  I have been working with the point person at the Mirage to get everything squared away, and so far the process has been fantastic.  When I bought that package, these other deals had not yet come out.  I probably still would have purchased the one at the Mirage, as it really best suits are needs for this trip, but my husband and I enjoyed a couple nights at the SkyLofts after our wedding a few years ago, and that place was nothing short of fantastic.  So, a package that includes the SkyLofts always catches my attention.  In general, these deals are not good if you are just looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Vegas or if you usually get comped at these hotels.  However, if you are looking for an upgraded room and plan on spending money at dinners, shows, the spa, etc, then there are some very good deals to be found with these packages.  If they are anything like the previous MGM property packages, they will go very quickly today.  For all of these deals

I personally prefer the slightly higher end MGM properties, so the two I would be most interested in are SkyLofts and Mandalay Bay.  A SkyLofts room routinely goes for at least $600 per night (and often much more).  In fact, the cheapest night I can currently find on their entire calendar is $750 per night plus tax.  Very conservatively with taxes and fees let’s say you got a two night stay for $1300 without the package – and that is just for the room.  If you pay for this package with an Amex, it is just $1363.  So, for $63, you get up to $700 worth of food, two one-hour massages that would run you at least $200, and two tickets to Ka that would run you at least $200 for equivalent seats.  So, you can look at is $1100 worth of “extras” for $63.  Of course, that is really only useful if you were going to use most of those “extras” anyway, but it sounds like a great deal in my book.  I would recommend doing a similar exercise for each of the packages to see if one is right for you.  If I hadn’t just scored the Mirage package, I would be all over this sale in a heartbeat.  Good luck to those who go for it on the Daily Getaways site today at 1PM Eastern!

  1. I just got back from the Mirage. I paid full retail and think it was worth that, so congrats on snagging the package! (I didn’t get to see Love because it was dark that week, but my friends really enjoyed it).
