Expedia.ca 48-hour sale ends Sunday midnight Pacific time
Update: 13:00 Pacific time, Sat Nov 20.
Expedia has updated the SAVE300 voucher terms to state travel and transactions must originate in Canada.
This offer is effectively DEAD unless you are traveling from Canada.

Las Vegas including airfare from San Francisco on a package trip in a Vdara Suite for $44.
Or $41 for one night in a Premier Strip View at the Four Seasons Las Vegas normally priced at $259.
Or $120 for a night in a Strip View Suite at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, normally priced at $425 per night.
The Venetian in a Venezia Bella View Suite for $30 and breakfast buffet included.
And the deals go on for Wynn Tower rooms with $100 stay credits for under $100, Palazzo suites, Bellagio Lake View Suites and many other hotel deals in Las Vegas for trips in November and December.
Expedia.ca has a $300CAD discount voucher for Air + Hotel packages in Las Vegas. The rates are so low that many packages are actually less than $300CAD all-in. Room upgrades pushed the price of the hotel rooms listed above to over $300CAD for a one night trip on December 13, 2010 leaving SFO Monday morning and returning Tuesday evening.
This deal went viral yesterday with over 1,000 posts on FlyerTalk in less than 24 hours. This is one of the longest lasting high value travel deals I have seen in quite a while and still appears available as I write this post.
Who knows if Expedia will honor these rates or not?
The one thing I have learned from this offer is there are some incredible Las Vegas deals through Expedia Hotel + Air packages, even without a $300 CAD credit.
Update 12 noon Sat Nov 20:
I originally posted quickly this morning to let people know the extraordinary rates people are getting for Las Vegas vacations. I know this Expedia.ca deal also applies to New York and Cancun, but the Las Vegas hotel deals for travel from San Francisco have held my attention.
The numbers I quote in the previous text do not exactly go with the images since I calculated rates based on hotel searches I had made for Monday night December 13 and the images are from a variety of Expedia rate searches.
The Expedia Canada SAVE300 offers are deep discounts on some Las Vegas upgraded hotel rooms and suites in 5-star hotels.
Here is a more systematic picture of the deep discounts at Las Vegas 5-star hotels available with the ‘SAVE300′ voucher credit on the Expedia.ca (Canada site) at 11am Pacific Sat Nov 20.
Monday December 13 – Thursday December 16, 2010
Prices shown are reduced by $300 when applying SAVE300 coupon for one person flying and staying in hotel for three nights.
Bellagio Hotel for three nights Dec 13-16 and airfare for one person from San Francisco is a total cost of $121 Canadian dollars after the Save300 voucher credit.
Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas with room rates normally in the $199 per night range is available for three nights at $376 CAD all-in with free airfare from San Francisco.
And you can upgrade your room. The Expedia Canada sale has been getting booked for over 24 hours and many suites are getting booked out. There were suite upgrade options for these dates just a couple of hours ago.
The new City Center Las Vegas is one of the largest real estate development projects in the world at more than 8 billion dollars. Click the link just to get a great photo image of the complex on the Las Vegas Strip if you are not familiar with the property. Several luxury hotels are part of City Center Las Vegas including the new Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, Vdara, and Aria Resort.
Room rates at the hotels in City Center are probably 50% of what they were predicted to run when these hotels were planned. City Center opened about 12 months ago into the worst hotel market of modern times and the greatest slump in tourism Las Vegas has ever experienced.
And these Expedia Canada rates are a fraction of the current published rates for these hotels in December 2010.
The best value comes from a simple one night stay where the hotel rate opportunities for a cheap upgrade are phenomenal.
Monday, December 13
A roundtrip flight from San Francisco to Las Vegas and a room at the Wynn Resort for Dec 13 is free after the $300 CAD credit. You might as well upgrade:
Wynn Resort Deluxe Panoramic View King is $38.29CAD after applying $300CAD voucher credit.
Wynn Tower room is just $62 CAD for the night. Remember the SFO-LAS flights are included in this $62 luxury hotel night.
Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas Hotel is actually free when booking one night Air+Hotel Package for Monday Dec 13.
Why not upgrade to a suite at a rate you will likely never see again?
