Hey 10xT team,
Curtis Rummel here, the secret other half of 10xT.
My fiancée and I just got back from a last-minute weekend Vegas trip for my brother in-law’s birthday.
It was crazy (as Vegas always is), it was a blast and best of all I was able to save more than $975 by using points/miles. That’s a great feeling.
When you don’t have to care too much about the costs – you’re guaranteed to be a winner every time you go to Vegas. Which means you can splurge a little more.
Here’s how I did it.
Not too long ago I picked up a Capital One Venture Card, which is one of the cards that allow you to “erase” any travel purchase made with the card.
It also was offering a signup bonus of 40,000 points after you spend $3,000 in 3 months, which is worth $400 of free travel.
(You can read our full breakdown of the pros/cons of the Capital One Venture card here)
We used our Venture cards to book flights on Frontier, which was not the best flying experience of my life, and arrived in Vegas early on Friday morning.
Thanks to my Capital One Venture card, we were able to erase $482 of the flight cost. (Here’s a screenshot of my redemption)
In Vegas we ended up staying in a Signature Balcony Suite at The Signature at MGM Grand, which was fantastic. Our two nights costed $626.
