    That may be the advertised price but when you add taxes and fees, it comes to $480 return - And that doesn't include carry on luggage or water, etc...

    Still doing it wrong. Cheaper to book it as two one way flights.

    Where are you finding Flamingo at that price? When I look anywhere it is just under $700 for the week. And that is before resort fees.

    Well first you get a players card and then you get your nephew to drive back and forth to Windsor 3x in one day so that he can get his players card and then you enter them both at Caesars.com

    Comp.... next time I go , give me your players card and I will play a blackjack session on your card (if they don’t catch it on the camera). You should get some 3 or 4 nights free offers when you log in to the Caesar’s rewards page... they also offer discounts on rooms all year round.


    After the ass whooping I took at the Wynn when you were there they have been sending great offers for 4 nights free and waived the resort fees.
