Pencil: The Wynn Getaway Package Summer 2014 Edition
Yesterday afternoon the mailman delivered one of those all too rare envelopes from Wynn Las Vegas. I know it wasn't a nastygram... those come via FedEx.... oh my gawd - an offer? And what perfect timing, as we're looking for a booking for the upcoming Kraftwerk show at The Cosmopolitan.
Why yes... the "Wynn Getaway Package" - a two night stay starting at $299 with complimentary upgrade to Encore Resort King, two complimentary tickets to Le Reve ($100 each) and two complimentary passes to the Wynn Buffet (normally $80). I haven't given Wynn much play in the last year, they're really digging deep into the bottom of the fishbowl sending a paper mailer to us. Before we fire it up and see what the rates are for this offer, let's look to see what the current rack rates are for that weekend, minus the comps.
Oh look! There's a 72 Hour Sale going on too! Now we've got something else to compare too. But first... the control group.
Wynn Deluxe Resort King = $319/night plus $25 resort fee.... no comps, no add ons.
Now let's apply the 72 hour 20% off sale coupon to the deal:
Wynn Deluxe Resort King with promotional rate is... $319/night plus $25 resort fee. Same price!
Now, let's run this through the mailer offer.
Wynn Deluxe Resort King = $399 for Friday June 27 and $399 for Saturday June 28. 30% more than the bait price and $80 per night MORE than the standard rack rate. But what about those "complimentary" buffet and show tickets? Yeah... they aren't complimentary at all... you're paying $160 bucks for em.
Deceptive language and funky math... I'm calling bullshit, Wynn Getaway Package indeed.
