Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Two names or phrases that are not that old and conjure up images of frenzied shopping with cash and credit cards leaving wallets after than Usain Bolt in the 100 meter sprint. As this Thanksgiving holiday approached, we all saw ads on TV, Newspaper, websites, e-mails etc. for specials for both days. Most of your “brick and mortar” stores) ie Macy’s, Kohl’s etc) those in a mall for example, were more to push the “Black Friday” concept while on line portals such as Ebay, Amazon, eBags etc were more toward the “Cyber Monday”.
I noticed that even Las Vegas got in on this craze and I’m not just talking about shopping the outlet malls, the Forum Shops or Miracle Mile. You could check a hotel casino’s webpage and get themed specials. Most of these specials will be emphasized on hotel rooms, meals and shows. One the lesser known but big benefits are the multi point rewards on certain days. Some casinos were offering as high as 15x the points on “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”. This could have been your chance to really rake in the rewards just off of your gaming.
