SIZZLING FOR AMEX PLATINUM CARDHOLDERS!!!!!! 2 FREE NIGHTS AT THE WYNN AND ENCORE HOTELS IN LAS VEGAS!!!

38

Update 2: Here is the trip report!

Update: Here is a link to get 25K AMEX MR points after spending $1,000 within 3 months on the AMEX Platinum card.

If you have the “grandaddy of credit cards” the super-expensive (unless you locked in on the December ’06 Has AMEX gone crazy deal, which incidentally has just paid out another $790 quirk on my card) and benefit-laden AMEX Platinum then you’re in for a treat!

$2.7 Billion was spent to construct The Wynn, making it the world’s most expensive resort. The Encore is a 2nd multi-billion dollar tower built adjacent to the Wynn that just opened 2 months ago.  They Wynn is often ranked among the top luxury resorts in the USA.

Call your Platinum travel concierge and ask for the 2 free nights promo at the Wynn or Encore hotels in Las Vegas.  If asked, the promotion ID number is E1320401.

As the Wynn and Encore are part of AMEX’s FHR (Fine hotels and resorts) program you will also get all of the benefits of a normal FHR booking.  In this case that includes a $40 Breakfast credit per person, per day, as well a free lunch, per person, per stay.  You will also get a space-available free room upgrade as well as a 4pm late checkout.

I just finished booking (in 2 separate phone calls) 2 free days at the Wynn for 03/15-03/17 and 2 free days at the Encore for 03/17-03/19, so I can confirm that this works without a hitch.  The quoted room rate is normally $296/night, of which you are only liable for the taxes of about $25/day. You must pay for your taxes on your AMEX Platinum.

You can stay between 03/01 and 04/25 but numerous blackout dates apply. You cannot stay on any of the following dates:
03/05-03/07
03/19-03/21
03/23-03/24
03/27-03/28
03/31-04/02
04/15-04/21

Dont have this card yet, but if I apply now can I still get this deal? Is it worth it?

Matt

Does this also work with the AMEX SimplyCash Business Platinum card?

annon

Dan,

I just had the renewal fee of 395 on my card come up. I waited and waited and waited, but unlike last time, no promo discount was applied and at 395 I wasn’t biting.

Can you tell us what that $790 quirk was about
Can you tell us if you got hit with a renewal?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Sam:
Based on my 2 bookings I think that you should have no problem applying now and using this promotion.
If you will be spending the $1,000 in the first 3 months you will get 25K AMEX MR points which should be worth at least $300 by itself.
So look at the other benefits (airport lounge access, lost item insurance, etc.) and see if it’s worth it to you.

@Matt:
No. Only the real AMEX Platinum that cost $$$.

@annon:
I did get hit with a $395 renewal, what happened after that though was interesting to say the least…

ggcheckpointline53

Cool! So the honeymoon continues with a post purim celebration in Vegas!

JP

can you use Amex Centurion (black)?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@JP:
Yes.

this might be similar to waving food in front of a pregnant woman and then denying her the food.
oy, when do we get to hear part two?

Eli

Dan, I don’t see anywhere that it says that I get 25,000 MR points. Are you sure about the promo that it’s still valid? Can you point me to a website showing the promo?

zero

dan, can the deal be transferred to someone else? (not the name on card)?

JULIE

Hey were you able to book two promos because you have two sep plat cards, or can you book this twice? We were there last weekend at Encore on this promo and it was AWESOME

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Eli:
Link added above.

@zero:
I’d say it’s doubtful.

@JULIE:
Any problems with getting the room for free? Please let us know what happened!
I do have 2 AMEX PLAT cards because I just closed and reopened my account, but try booking it again and let us know what happens!

Eli

Dan, do you know if I will still get the bonus MR points even though I used the app that they use when you are already logged into your account to facilitate the app? I’m gettting a little nervous that maybe I should’ve used the regular long app. Any experience with this?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Eli:
You should be OK, just take screenshots of the promo and if there is a problem refer to promo 1622.

aaron

can someone explain is there a annual fee for the credit card
that you earn 25,000

JULIE

I had no problems getting the free room whatsoever. They comp you $40 a day for breakfast (but even comped one breakfast that was $65), and $90 for lunch. They give you a list of restaurants to choose from. The only thing that they charged me for at check-out was one Kit-Kat. Not sure when room taxes are charged on my card, but that wasn’t listed on my folio. This was the easiest FHR check out I’ve ever had … no problems whatsoever!

JULIE

PS Dan – We have two cards on our account in two diff names (my husband and I both have a card). Do you know if we can both use the promo?

Seems like it was not a problem booking it but I don’t want there to be probs later. Thank you.

Dan/Ctownbochur

Wow, so no taxes on the folio? Did you check on AMEX online to see if they charged any taxes to your card?

I don’t think you’ll have any problem booking another stay with your husband’s card.

Julie

Checked Amex and no tax charges yet. Will keep you posted if they pop up.

howard

just tried to book for 3-15. they are totally SOLD OUT. any advice?

Stephanie

Just called and found out that you can’t check out on the blackout dates (ie you can checking in on March 17th and out the 19th as the 19th is a blackout date)

Stephanie

Sorry about that – You CANNOT check out on a blackout date

Dan/Ctownbochur

@Stephanie:
I believe that you were misinformed.

moe

with the promo, how many ppl are allowed to stay in the room? any extra charge for additonal ppl?

Just Booked

3-15 – 3-17 @ Encore & 3-17 – 3-19 @ Wynn

Dan I may need you to check out my room at the wynn on the 19th cause I need to leave on the 18th evening and they charge you for the nights room if you check out too early… Are you available or do you have an aitza how to get out of the charge ?

Thanks for all you do brother

Chloe

Can you book 2 separate reservations on the same AMEX plat card?

Candy

Hi, Dan,
I have the AE Citi Platinum card. Does it work? Thanks!

Rose

Hello, Dan!

Does this promo work for the AE Platinum Cash Rebate Executive Costco card? Thanks!

Frank

Hi, Dan!

I have an AMEX and I wonder if the deal can transferred to someone else, like friends, relatives, etc,? And, also, what about the name on the card?

Rachel

My husband and I used this last month and I had some issues with AMX Travel Counselors and their understanding of the program. We stayed at Encore, really nice by the way, totally different from the Wynn rooms. When we went to check out after our 2 night stay we were told that we were booked under the normal program and that counselor didn’t note the free nights offer in the comments section. The clerk also mentioned that we booked over black out dates. We did have the mailer and yes we did unintentionally book the black out with counselor – who should have known better. The clerk called her supervisor, who called someone else, who called the Director of Sales and she approved the comp nights. Checking out took about half an hour. We called AMEX and asked why they would have allowed the booking to happen over the black outs and she blamed the resort. So long story short make sure you are booking everything correctly since AMX doesnt seem to know the ins and outs of this one. We didn’t pay tax at check out and slso you do get all of the normal FHR amenities. We had an awesome lunch at Wa-zuzu.

Birju

Just used this for the past sunday night stay and it worked out beautifully. Free food, free 2 bedroom suite, and free insane behavior.

spideo

Dan, did you book both stays at the Encore and Wynn with the same account?

Dan/Ctownbochur

@spideo:
Yes

Tiradan

Hey Dan, cool site.

I saw somewhere online that this deal will not work if you have stayed at the hotel before.

Do you know if this is true? I have stayed at the Wynn before, but never at the Encore.

Bobby

Dan, I would like to try the back-to-back Wynn and Encore stays…looks like it worked for you, but surely they have a common reservation system? I would really appreciate if you have any ideas on why it worked? Is there any link with the rules for this deal?
I am actually hoping I can do this with one overlapping night at Wynn and Encore (planning to put some relatives up in the second room who are arriving one day after me). Again, would appreciate if you see any red flags to this.
Thanks!

sam

is this promotion still alive? until when?
Also can i use my amex business platinum for this?

jam

frank
