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:
