Why it's a deal: A recent Kayak search produced a $139 round-trip flight between San Francisco and Las Vegas for travel in mid-October (Virgin America). A three-night stay at the hotel costs about $144 per person including taxes. So booking independently, you would expect to pay about $283. This package costs $262, all taxes included—a savings of $21. Plus, you'll get an $80 resort credit.
More: Add nights at the Luxor from $34 per person. There are hotel upgrades available: Add $20 per person for New York-New York Hotel & Casino, $60 per person for Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, and $135 per person for Caesar's Palace.
