Today’s Daily Getaway offer features various packages at Caesars resorts in Las Vegas.
In case you’re not familiar, Daily Getaways are daily deals sponsored by the US Travel Association. Some are better than others, so you need to think about whether you can take full advantage of the offer before buying.
For the more popular offers, they will sell out quickly, which means being around right when they go on sale each day at 1:00 pm EDT. Some offers will sell out in hours, some in minutes. It’s also important to be patient. If you click shortly after an offer becomes available and it shows sold out, keep trying. Someone may have an offer in their shopping cart but change their mind or have their computer crash. When that happens, their bad luck or change of heart can be your good fortune.
There’s no 10% discount this year for paying with an AMEX card. However, it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the pricing of most deals, with some being slightly better (and others the same or slightly worse) than last year.
Here’s a summary of the offers I talked about earlier this week:
This is mostly a mixed bag, not too different from last year’s Caesar’s offers.
2 nights in a mini-suite, 2 Buffet of Buffets passes, round-trip limo transfers, fitness center and internet access along with a bottle of champagne. The buffet passes are worth about $120. Is the rest worth $180? Probably, depending on when you go. But, I don’t see a screaming value here.
2 nights in a regular room at Caesars, 2 Buffet of Buffets passes, round-trip limo transfers, fitness center and internet access. I just don’t see getting significantly more than $400 in value out of two nights in a regular room at Caesars consistently enough to make this a huge savings, but you can probably pocket $100 if you were planning to enjoy the buffets.
This is one of the best deals of the Caesars bunch and a repeat of last year, though at a higher price. You have your pick of Caesars hotels, $100 dining credit, $150 spa credit, round-trip limo transfers, fitness center and internet access. 2 nights in a regular room are certainly worth more than $175. If you can get full value for the dining and spa, this is an easy package to save a few hundred dollars on.
This is a pretty solid deal. Two nights at Nobu Hotel, $300 dining credit, round-trip limo transfers, fitness center and internet access along with tea service in your room. There are a few times I found Nobu for cheaper than $200 a night, but plenty where it’s much higher. Since half of the package value is covered by the dining credit, you should be able to save a couple hundred dollars pretty easily.
This is a repeat of last year’s offer, but $30 more expensive.
- Accommodations in a Hollywood Hip Room for 2 consecutive nights (double occupancy) at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas
- Enjoy a $100 dining credit to use at your choice of restaurants, bars and lounges within the hotel.
- 2 Show Tickets to the Caesars Entertainment Show of your choice
- Complimentary in-room bottle of champagne.
- Round-trip transportation to and from McCarran International Airport and the hotel.
This is another repeat at a higher price (about $50 more than last year).
A Hollywood Hip King is essentially their standard room and it will set you back at least $150 a night and over $200 on most nights I searched. The show tickets are probably worth between $150 and $200 depending on what show you pick. Between those two and the dining credit I could see saving $100 to $200.
- Stay 2 consecutive nights in a Premium Studio Suite at Rio Secco
- Enjoy a $100 dining credit to use at your choice of restaurants, bars and lounges within the hotel
- A round of Golf for 2 at Rio Secco Golf Club.
- Round-trip transportation for 2 between the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino and the Rio Secco Golf Club.
- Round-trip transportation for 2 between the McCarran International Airport and the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.
A studio suite at the Rio is at least $250 a night. Golf starts at roughly $120 a person and goes up from there. So, between the room nights, the golf and dinner, you can save a couple hundred dollars.
Bottom Line It For Me, Ed
There’s some savings to be had here. I’d refer to these sorts of deals as “lazy man’s guide to deals in Las Vegas”. They’re pre-packaging elements they expect will appear to the mass market. Just be careful to add up the pieces of the package you know you’ll use and make sure they add up to savings.
