A good way to start of the New Year is by traveling at a discount to a quality hotel. Although I love the Wynn in Las Vegas, the Bellagio, with its' world famous fountains is a great alternative.
For the month of January 2009, the Bellagio is offering a free third night when you book two consecutive nights. The deluxe rooms start at $169 and you can make your reservation online or by phone using code 3N169FN.
Combine that deal with the Southwest discount fares this winter starting at $49, and it makes for a very affordable getaway trip. You can use the savings on your trip to play a few games, just make sure you quit if you lose!
