So how does that work exactly? I am planning a trip in early December to the Luxor, would love to grab the resort credit. Do they do any sort of verification, or do you just talk all nautical at check-in? :)
Have used Royal offer many times and never ever asked for proof. Have Vdara booked for Feb. If it makes you feel better you can join free anyway, but we,.... nor our friends have ever been asked for it.

Not even a gamble...just a great deal. We do 2 bookings back to back and each get credit....separate names of course.

pretty poor form even for RFD.
Not sure why poor form, this is life, its comes and goes, prices goes up and down. When its Christmas season and every1 is happy and jolly that doesnt stop airlines and hotels from raising their prices. so when something bad happens maybe we can finally get a discount. Turnabout is always fair play.

BTW, ammunition and gun companies stocks are all up on the stock market. I guess some ppl are cashing in already.

Bit different hiking prices for Christmas, boxing match or the like, to posting we may get a deal because 59 innocent people have been brutally murdered and 500 are still injured. Lets hope you get your deal then.

Why? It's just supply and demand. At Christmas and for special events, demand peaks and prices go up. After a disaster like the one we've just seen it's not inconceivable that demand, and therefore prices, will drop. After 9/11, obviously a disaster of much bigger proportions, Vegas was a ghost town for a time and prices plummeted.

Time will tell but there's no point in people getting upset over simple economics.

I don't think anyone disagrees with that point. But at least 14 people here think it's poor form to openly say "I hope that I will benefit from this atrocious mass murder".

Not upset just would not have been my immediate reaction to post that, so soon after such an event. Good luck to them.

The wife and I are staying for 4 nights, so we could split the booking to double dip, but how does it work. Would we need to change rooms? Do they just check you out and back in to the same one? Obviously the desk clerk knows exactly what you are doing, I am guessing they don't care?

They dont care. We just ask at check in for them to link our bookings and not had a problem yet and just stayed in the same room. All 5 couples of us do it, and have done it many times. One time at Mirage did go to room and key would not open door on the 3rd day . Went to reception, they apologized and just re programmed our key. That only happened once.

Book 2 nights with your name and 2 nights under your wife's name?
At check in at 1st night, u may ask the front desk to keep the 3rd night with 2nd booking the same room.
They will be just doing their job, wouldn't ask how you get it.

Usually, I will book with 2 different hotel to have 2 different experiences for a vacation. hehe
Your hotel credits on the 1st 2 night will expire once you check out, so it is not like you can use the whole lum sump all together.

Dont forget you have to use the credit for each booking in that 48 hrs before you officially check out though......so cant carry over the credit. We are doing 6 nights in Feb. Checked with hotel and as its not consecutive they say thats fine. Have it in an email. First time we have done 6 though!!!

I'm visiting a friend in Vegas next week and I need a cheap place to stay for two nights. I don't need anything fancy and I won't be spending much time on the Strip.

Is Circus Circus really all that bad? Should I consider somewhere else? Other cheap options include Silver Sevens, Ellis Island, Hooters and Arizona Charlie's Decatur.

If you are not staying on Strip, try to look for some hotel that doesn't charge resort fee off Strip.
Most if not all hotels on Strip charge resort fee range from $28 -$39 USD per night.
