    Still team Aria - for sure. She has a trip booked to Aria for July 14th and August 11th and October (I'll be meeting her there for the Aug and Oct ones).

    And I got my cool new N95 mask today for the August trip - fits like I hoped it would - like a scuba mask- air tight.

    Update on the Throw Caution to the Wind trip - another trip was added today. I'll now be headed to Aria on July 13 for 4 nights. The 5X points promotion is way too good to pass up.

    Plenty of United miles so flying first class to get there and southwest points to return :)

    I just noticed that you can clearly see that Marketing department has my account totally screwed up - my sister Lisa is getting promo emails to my email address and I'm not getting any of my offers commensurate with my Platinum level. I've been working with member services and marketing and IT for weeks to get it straightened out. As recently as yesterday.

    On a cool note - if any of you are MLIFE - the offers that you got for Q2 can be used twice - yes twice. It used to only be once - now I'm getting my FP/RC offer for both July and August - along with the 5X points offer.

    You can see why it was too good to pass up.

    I can't be the only one who is becoming wary of the surge of cases in the Southern states. They even had to shut the pool yesterday at my country club because there were 2 cases there on Thursday. They closed it at 5pm Thursday and reopened it this morning after a thorough cleaning.

    I'm still thinking that I'll go on July 11th but look forward to any feedback from VFers on it.

    Wasn’t the surge going to happen once we opened anyways?

    if it’s July 12 you may want to change your headline

    ‘tis stuff is going to be around for the next year so. It’s up to,your risk tolerance. I do think with the mask requirement it makes things more safe

    just don’t go licking the slots

    Claire - I'm now getting skiddish with the news about the surge in the Southern and Western states. I'm leaning towards not going in July. There's even been very recent cases right here in Cary with kids testing positive - that's the scary part - asymtomatic 10-25 yrs olds running around and don't even know they're spreading it.

    I've been thinking about the July trip all weekend. I think I'm going to cancel it - between the surge and the deteriorating health of a family member I think it would be best to wait until August.

    I'll post my decision on July when finalized.

    Understandable. Hope you and your family stay healthy and that eventually you have a winning a trip to Aria.

    Did you friend at Bellagio have a good trip or is she in the “it’s not the same” camp?

    Thanks for the well wishes.

    She had a great trip with regards to winning - but she definitely likes Aria better.

    Even though it looks like I won't be able to go on July13th - I may be able to go later in July depending on my brother-in-law's health.

    I cancelled my trip this morning. United also refunded all of the miles that I used to book my ticket :)

    Probably the safest choice for your situation and easier to stay healthy for your next trip.

    Good for United. Southwest has been great for me with my rebooking and rebooking.

    Still thinking about your mask but the cost of the single use filter bums me out. But haven’t ruled out.

    Jeepers - I need to read more about the filter - I didn't realize that it was single use. Good thing that I ordered a pack of extra ones at the same time.

    I have expensive wine with dinner every night so I doubt the filter costs more than 1/2 bottle of wine :) :)

    Claire - the filters are only single use if you know you're wearing the mask in a known corona virus environment such as an ICU Covid ward. They can safely be re-used after a flight by storing the filter for 4 days before re-using it.
