longtime lurker questions...finally

Ok..Vegas was suppose to be last year but due to family demands..son's wedding and subsequent grandchild it got put on hold...Not complaining mind you the grandchild is soooooooooo cool.lol

As of right now the plan is a trip to Vegas for our anniversary June 21th -26th. Saturday night will be at the GC. See...I learned the weekend in more expensive.

After reading reviews on three different sites, Harrah's is winning right now due to the rate and location. But since I know about the discount codes that could change.

So my 1st of what will be a number of questions I'm sure is....how soon would they be posting the discount codes on FatWallet? I looked before I asked this and they only go to April.

2nd, I saw on another thread that if you haven't booked a room at the GC, I should do so now. Is this correct?

I do not know about the GC, but for Vegas just book something you are comfortable with and then keep checking for the rates to fall. I have noticed that the codes for early years have just started coming out. Harrahs is a great mid range property. I love the location and the feel of the place. Its not fancy so everyone will feel comfortable there.

I doubt that you will see discounts for June for at least 3 or 4 months or so. Good idea to book directly with the hotel that way you can always get the better rate when offered. Some of the best offers I've seen on fatwallet have been for the MGM. I don't know if you want to stay that far south on the strip.

Malebird has a good point. I have joined many casino web mail lists and get offers, maybe not great ones, but I do get discounted offers.
