Wynn Hotel Las Vegas: Stack Promotions Big Savings and Benefits
Wynn is easily one of the nicest hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. In fact, Tripadvisor lists it as the number 5 hotel with over 20,000 reviews and 4.5 stars from travelers. There are a few promotions available to Amex Platinum Cardholders (Click here to find out if you’re targeted for 100K Bonus Offer) that can be combined for crazy cheap stays and awesome benefits at Wynn or Encore in Las Vegas. If you’re able to fully maximize all the benefits and discounts your net effective rate for Wynn is around $25-$40 INCLUDING taxes and resort fees. Right now is an excellent time to sign up for the Platinum Card because there is an awesome welcome offer available, Huge Targeted Amex Platinum 100K Offer Returns: How to Check If You’re Eligible!
Amex Offer: Wynn Las Vegas and Encore
There’s an Amex Offer available on many cards for a $60 statement credit after spending $300 on eligible Wynn/Encore purchases. Another awesome thing about this offer is that it includes spa and restaurant spend at Wynn or Encore. Often the terms limit the offer to room rate.
- Offer valid only for room rate, room charges, select food and beverage establishments, and spas at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore.
- Reservations must be made directly through Wynn Las Vegas at wynnlasvegas.com or via the mobile app.
- Offer not valid for stays that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date. May 7, 2018 through September 13, 2018
Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts: 4th Night Free
But wait, there’s more! One of the many benefits of the American Express Platinum Card is the FHR program. (Full Platinum Benefits Guide.) You can book through the Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts and get the 4th night free! Here’s our American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts Guide for everything you need to know about the program. Another cool thing about Wynn/ Encore is that the breakfast credit is actually $40/per person per day. As a reminder, stays booked through FHR receive the following benefits:
- Room upgrade upon arrival, when available
- Daily breakfast for two people
- Guaranteed 4pm late check-out
- Noon check-in, when available
- Complimentary In-Room Wi-Fi
- Unique amenity valued at US$100, such as a spa or food and beverage credit
The discount is calculated as an average of the 4 nights. I’ll be in Vegas in June and look at this amazing deal. 4 nights at the Wynn after taxes and fees (which are approx $40/day) for net effective rate as low as $100.
Stacking Promotions = Really Cheap Rate
While it says the reservation needs to be made directly with the hotel, I think there’s a very good chance of the Amex offer stacking with the Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts benefit since it is generally treated as a direct booking and you pay the hotel directly. (FHR bookings have triggered several other hotel related Amex offers for me in the past.)
Everybody considering this offer should figure out the value to themselves for the FHR benefits with a monetary value. For example, if you don’t eat much while you’re in Vegas or don’t think you’ll visit the Spa, you should reduce the following values accordingly. For me personally, I am generally able to make full use, so I have them valued at full price.
$640 Cost to Book 4 Nights + Resort Fees and Applicable Taxes
– $60 Amex Offer (or $120 if you have the offer on 2 cards and split payment)
– $100 Spa Credit
– $320 Breakfast Credit
$160 (or $100)
As you can see, the net effective price for 4 nights at Wynn is $40 a night! For me, it would actually be $25/night since I have the offer on several cards. Even if you don’t pay for hotels in Vegas, this is probably a better offer since the resort fee at most hotels is more than the effective rate. Throw in the free parking at Wynn and I don’t see how you could do any better.
