I don't really know why I get these emails from MGMGrand.Com since I'm not a member of any slot clubs in Las Vegas and so I have no history of staying or playing with this or any other resort. Well, I suppose some of it could come from the fact that Miles and I stayed at almost every place in the Strip for Conde Nast Traveler several years ago for a special Vegas section I wrote, but I don't get everybody's stuff. Only, at least in the MGM Mirage world, MGM Grand's.
Anyhow, in light of recent events related to MGM Grand, their website and an offer they decided to refuse many of you, I wondered about the boast above. Is this REALLY the "absolute lowest rate" or is it the "absolute lowest rate unless you're one of our special customers to whom we'll send a different offer?" If there are any lower rates out there, is this false advertising?
I'm also curious about this line in the text of the email:
"MGM Grand reserves the right to cancel or modify this promotion at its discretion and without prior notice."
Does this mean they can cancel or modify the promotion AFTER people book it? Not that they'd EVER do such a thing...
