Las Vegas: Stay at Mandalay Bay and get a free airline ticket to come back

Las Vegas: Stay at Mandalay Bay and get a free airline ticket to come back

Does a visit to Las Vegas leave you wanting to come back for more? Mandalay Bay and its boutique TheHotel are offering a “Fly Back Free” deal that features 30% off room rates and a round-trip airline ticket good for a year.

Deal: “Fly Back Free” advertises room rates starting at $66 at Mandalay Bay and $86 at TheHotel. Guests who stay even one night get a round-trip airline ticket worth up to $350 to come back to Vegas. The ticket voucher is good for a year; on your return, you must stay at least two nights, based on double occupancy. Use the code PFLY10-P2 when booking online or by phone.

When: Now through Sept. 9, subject to availability.

 Tested: When I searched both hotels online, I found the lowest room rate was available only on midweek nights Sept. 6 through 9, on Labor Day and right after. For Mandalay Bay, I found the $66 rate widely available on those days; with taxes and a $15 resort fee, the total came to $74. But if you want to cash in on the free airfare and don’t want to be restricted to the September dates, rates on other nights are still discounted, just not as deeply. For example, I found rooms at $140 per weekend night (June 11 and 12) and $90 per night midweek night (June 13 through 17) at Mandalay Bay that normally go for $204 and $132, respectively.

Here’s how the free airline ticket works: When you check in at the hotel, you get a voucher for an airline ticket worth up to $350 that you book through an agency, Archer Travel Group. You have to book 21 days in advance of your travel date; other restrictions may apply.
