Just a quick reminder that this week I’m running a giveaway (sponsored by Hyatt) for 22,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points, plus two Las Vegas show tickets, plus two MGM Grand experiences. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post finishing the sentence “when in Las Vegas, you’re in luck when…” You can enter once per day, and the deadline to enter is 11:59PST tomorrow night.

Thanks to everyone that’s participating, and good luck!
