A Great Shortcut To MGM M Life Gold Status (And Why You Want It)!

MGM Resorts is really the dominant player in terms of the sheer variety of great properties they have in Las Vegas.  They have upscale properties like Aria and Vdara, mid-level properties like Mandalay Bay and MGM, and budget properties like Luxor and Excalibur.

Their waitress, taking another order at a table a few paces away noticed that the man was slowly sliding down his chair and under the table, with the woman acting unconcerned. The waitress watched as the man slid all the way down his chair and out of sight […]

Did You Win a United Club Pass?

Random.org gave me a bit of help picking the winners of the 2 United Club Passes I was giving away.  They are: Candace, who said: I like them for award availability. I agree.  That’s one of the few bright spots for me, though made much dimmer when they crushed partner redemptions with the Black Friday devaluation. Hemant, who said: I fly them frequently non-stop IAD-SEA. Generally on time, however it has been very hard to get upgraded post-merger. When I do get upgraded – I find the first class amenities […]
