myVEGAS FAQs – Get the BEST Information!

If you’re like me, then you frequently play myVEGAS because their rewards are top notch. Not to mention, you can redeem rewards for places other than Vegas! But if you have some pending questions, let me answer some of the myVEGAS FAQs.

myVEGAS FAQs

How many MyVegas apps are there?

There are 7 ways to earn myVEGAS Loyalty Points to redeem rewards. MyVEGAS Slots, myVEGAS Blackjack, MGM Slots Live!, myVEGAS Bingo, Konami Slots, POP! Slots, and playing myVEGAS Slots on Facebook gaming.

Can you get free rooms on MyVegas?

Absolutely! I have redeemed free stays at the Bellagio, Mirage, Mandalay Bay, Luxor, Excalibur, and Sycuan in San Diego. You will still be required to pay for the room fees and taxes though!

How do you get Loyalty Points in MyVegas app?

You earn Loyalty Points (LP) simply by playing the games in the app. This means playing the slots or blackjack. However myVEGAS Bingo and MGM Slots Live award LP differently. For those two apps only, all you have to do is have the app open and you will start earning Loyalty Points – no actual game play needed!

Do myVEGAS Loyalty Points expire?

NOPE! No expiration date on the LP. However there is an expiration on the rewards. If you use your LP to redeem a reward, most rewards will have an expiration date. Usually the date is 45 days. If you can’t use the reward within that time, no worries! You can cancel the reward and get all LP back.

Can you gift MyVegas Loyalty Points?

Unfortunately you cannot gift myVEGAS Loyalty Points.

Is there a limit on myVEGAS rewards?

Yes and no. There is a limit on how many Premium Rewards you can redeem in a 30 day period. That limit is 2. When planning your reward redemption, remember to keep this in mind. Although the rewards will say what is considered a Premium reward, there is an easy indication. More often than not, if it has to do with something that is 100% free (not BOGO, not “with the purchase of..”, etc), then it is a Premium reward. For example, a free night stay, a free drink, or a free ticket to a show that has no other purchase obligation will be a Premium reward.

How many loyalty points can you earn per day on MyVegas?

This could vary based on gaming promotions. But it is estimated that you could earn a grand total of 25,375 Loyalty Points across all myVEGAS apps in one single day. To learn more about how many LP you can earn on each individual myVEGAS app, click here!

Are there other apps like MyVegas?

To my knowledge there is not. I tried Caesar’s Slots, but they do not have any real-world rewards. MyVEGAS apps are the only way to play a free game while earning real-life rewards.

How to Save on Disneyland Tickets

Is anyone really shocked that Disneyland raised their prices again? I’m not. But if you’re wondering how to save on Disneyland tickets, you’re in luck! The only downside is… there is a ticking clock. You need to act quickly to save money.

You can lock-in the old Disneyland prices and save up to $90 per ticket with my partners at Get Away Today! They were actually able to keep their tickets at the lower price. But only for a limited time! Especially because a lot of Disney-goers are learning about this loophole to save money.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions:

how to update my wardrobe on a budget

How to Update My Wardrobe on a Budget

There are a lot of clothing companies out there, but not all of them are budget-friendly. Not to mention if they do end up being affordable, you may be compromising quality for that price. Here are four resources for how to update your wardrobe on a budget

Thrift stores

I update my wardrobe on a budget with thrift shopping
My favorite thrift store in Escondido has helped me find cute things like Disney Spirit Jerseys!

By no shock to anyone, shopping at thrift stores is convenient, local to you, and very affordable. We are also living in an age of VERY fast fashion. It’s so fast that I can’t even keep up. But the great thing about fast fashion is that it turns up in thrift stores even faster. That being said, if you don’t mind being a little being the latest trend, thrift store shopping will be your best friend.

Not to mention, shopping at thrift stores is HIGHLY sustainable. By shopping preowned items you are reducing the amount of water it takes to make a new piece of clothing, reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, and reusing perfectly good items. Talk about eco-friendly!

Thrift store shopping has been my personal number one way to update my wardrobe on a budget.

Poshmark or Mercari

Powerful Disney Bound of Marvel's Captain Marvel Carol Danvers
I made this entire Captain Marvel outfit solely off of purchases from Poshmark!

Both of these online shopping platforms are bringing preowned item shopping online. Now there are still plenty of thrift stores that you can purchase from online. But these two apps have the added bonus of allowing you to sell your items that you no longer want. Donating to thrift stores is great, don’t get me wrong. However, some items still retain a high value rate. And what better way to expense your next purchase than by selling some items first to make it happen.

I have used Poshmark before to create amazing Disney Bounds. The ability to search the app for the EXACT thing that I need and in the size that I wear is just not something I can do at a thrift store. Plus I also sold lots of items on the app and turned around to use those funds to buy items through the app. Overall a great experience and again, all the same sustainability advantages!

Clothes swap

Do you have stylish friends? What about a sibling or two? Or a parent that is looking to get rid of something in their closet? GOOD! Then that means you now have access to calling dibs on items that they may want to give up!

Let your friends and family know that if they plan on giving anything away to let you know first. Tell them that you would love to look through their items to see if there is anything that you would like. I know that I definitely have a few friends who have pieces in their wardrobe that I would love to snag if given the opportunity. Odds are they will definitely let you riffle through anything they plan on giving away.

Update your wardrobe on a budget by doing a clothes swap

But remember to be courteous. Always offer to buy the pieces from them. Don’t assume that they will give it to you for free.

PROTIP: You can even ask your friend if you can just borrow that piece that you’ve been eyeing! For someone like me who has a very stylish best friend who is also a content creator, she knows that sometimes I just want to borrow something from her closet for a picture and a post. Odds are she gets it back right after the photoshoot. See? There are so many ways to update your wardrobe on a budget.

Reduce your new wardrobe purchases

Now even after trying to incorporate preowned items into your wardrobe, there will still be times of wanting something brand spanking new. And that’s fine! Keeping to a budget does not mean that you can’t ever treat yourself. It simply means that you plan your budget with that purchase in mind.

So if you can’t reuse, then reduce! When you go through making your purchases for new items, try your best to reduce the amount you buy. Especially if it’s fast fashion. I know that I put together Disney Bounds through the massive catalog that is Shein, and part of that reason is because I can show you items that are easily accessible. But I still encourage you to treat those videos and outfit collages as inspiration. Then take that inspiration to the thrift store or onto Poshmark.

I have used all of these ways listed here to update my wardrobe on a budget. And you can update your wardrobe in a very sustainable way too!

Evercool from Rest Duvet coupon code

Does Evercool Really Work For Hot Sleepers?

Like Rob Thomas sang in “Smooth” by Santana, man it’s a HOT one! Now that my husband and I own our own condo, we needed an efficient way to cool ourselves at night. And turning the AC way down was not the solution. A cooling comforter was! Specifically the Evercool Cooling Comforter from Rest. But does Evercool really work?

Keep reading for an exclusive discount code for Evercool! I will receive a commission from Rest if the code is used. Using this code does not increase your purchase price.

About Evercool

We recently got the Evercool cooling comforter from Rest. Shockingly enough, it has only been available for three months. Since then, it has already been recommended by Healthline and Goodhousekeeping as one of the best cooling comforters of 2022! Based on those two recommendations alone, I was convinced it could help my husband not be a hot sleeper anymore. Honestly he radiates heat and always wants to cuddle me. I love him to pieces but my goodness I cannot stand how hot he makes our bed feel.

Just upon opening the package, we were both shocked at how cool it actually was. It felt like it had just been taken out of the fridge. It is cooler than cotton, bamboo, silk, and Tencel! Not only that, but it was super soft.

And if you think that was all it was good for, there’s more! It’s also got three times the moisture wicking power compared to regular comforters. Hand in hand with that is that it is quick-drying making caring and washing it a breeze. Needless to say, we were excited to see if it lived up to it’s hype. So.. does Evercool really work for hot sleepers?

Evercool cooling comforter from Rest Duvet

Our Trial Run

Our previous solution for hot nights was to swap out our thick comforter for a thin blanket. Although that was a better solution than keeping the thick comforter, it still didn’t help as much. We immediately put Evercool on our bed and kept all of our sleeping habits exactly the same. Same bamboo sheets, same amount of pillows on the bed, and the AC set to 76 degrees.

Hopping in to bed for the first time, it still felt like the comforter was just cold on its own. Both my husband and I slept great that night. I didn’t feel like the bed was overheating because of him being a hot sleeper. I also felt like I had uninterrupted sleep because I wasn’t waking up from being hot.

After trying it for a week, I don’t think my husband wants to go back to any other blanket. He likes to say that he’s a little “cold burrito” when he’s wrapped up in Evercool. And for me, on some nights I felt like it did TOO good of a job and I had to rely on getting another blanket to warm me back up! But I run pretty cold as it is (my husband hates it when I touch him with my cold feet and hands). As an added bonus, our husky also likes taking his naps on our comforter now too, and that’s not something he normally does.

Overall Thoughts about Evercool Cooling Comforter

I would definitely recommend using Evercool to others if you want to sleep less hot, have less night sweat, less waking up due to overheating, or just want to lower your AC bill. And if that bright blue color that Evercool is known for isn’t your bedroom aesthetic, they just released a brand new grey color! In short, yes Evercool really works.

Better yet, if you want a coupon code for Evercool or anything else on Rest.com, use the code DGB20 to get 20% off of the Evercool Cooling Comforter!

how many loyalty points can i earn in myvegas in one day

How Many Loyalty Points Can I Earn in a Day on myVEGAS?

This blog will dive in to how many Loyalty Points that you can earn on each myVEGAS app before your daily green check mark of completion shows up. Don’t know what the green check mark is? Read What is this green check mark on myVEGAS to find out!

If you aren’t familiar with the myVEGAS apps, I suggest that you read my extremely popular blog Making the Most of the myVEGAS apps for an intro into what it is and how to earn. And if you’re already an expert and want to fast-track your success in gaining Loyalty Points, then read the BEST myVEGAS Tips and Tricks.

DISCLAIMER: The amount of Loyalty Points you can earn in a day may depend on certain levels or in-app promotions. This is just my personal experience with the amount you can earn in a single day.

Now let’s get in to it!


There are SEVEN apps you can earn on! Let’s see how many MyVEGAS Loyalty Points you can earn on each in a day.

myVEGAS Slots Loyalty Points

The amount you earn in Loyalty Points every time you fill up your Loyalty Meter will be based on your in app level. Currently I am Level 380 and I earn 400 Loyalty Points every time I fill the meter up. Higher bets will fill your Meter up faster. I also receive 400 Loyalty Points simply for doing my daily login. You can earn up to 4,600 Loyalty Points on myVEGAS Slots in one gaming day.

POP! Slots

The amount you earn in Loyalty Points every time you fill up your Loyalty Meter will be based on your in app level. Currently I am Level 37 and I earn 200 Loyalty Points every time I fill the meter up. Higher bets will fill your Meter up faster. You can earn up to 3,000 Loyalty Points on POP! Slots in one gaming day.

myVEGAS Blackjack

The amount you earn in Loyalty Points every time you fill up your Loyalty Meter will be based on your in app level. Currently I am Level 47 and I earn 110 Loyalty Points every time I fill the meter up. Higher bets will fill your Meter up faster.

And be prepared to spend A LOT of time on this app to reach the cap. The meter actually has to be filled up 5 times in order to award your Loyalty Points. And after spending half a day trying to reach the green check mark, I never succeeded and gave up. You can earn around 5,000 Loyalty Points on myVEGAS Blackjack in one gaming day.

Konami Slots Loyalty Points

The amount you earn in Loyalty Points every time you fill up your Loyalty Meter will be based on your in app level. Currently I am Level 168 and I earn 400 Loyalty Points every time I fill the meter up. Higher bets will fill your Meter up faster. You can earn up to 4,800 Loyalty Points on Konami Slots in one gaming day.

myVEGAS Bingo

The amount you earn in Loyalty Points is a FIXED amount and does NOT increase with your level within the app. Every time you fill up your Loyalty Meter it will award you 50 Loyalty Points. Now, this app is VERY different from earning on the other apps. Where the other apps fill up the Meter based on your bet amount, this app is on a TIMED Meter.

Open the app and your Loyalty Meter will change from a faded version of the Meter to a full color version of the Meter and that is the Meter filling up. It fills up all the way in a minute and a half and then it will award you the 50 Loyalty Points. This means that you literally do not even need to play the game to earn Points. As long as the app is open, it will award Loyalty Points! You can earn up to 3,000 Loyalty Points on myVEGAS Bingo in one gaming day.

Ad

MGM Slots Live

Similar to myVEGAS Bingo, this Loyalty Points meter is also on a timer. However, when you first open the app, it will start by giving you 100 Loyalty Points every time you fill up the meter. But, it will slowly increase that amount the longer you spend on the app. By the time that you are close to your cap, it will be rewarding you 300 Loyalty Points every time you fill it up. Open the app and play, or open the app and do nothing – either way you will get the points! It fills up all the way in two minutes when you first start playing in your day, and three minutes by the time you get close to the end of your gaming day on the app. You can earn up to 3,900 Loyalty Points on MGM Slots Live in one gaming day.

myVEGAS Slots on Facebook Loyalty Points

The amount you earn in Loyalty Points is a FIXED amount and does NOT increase with your level within the app. Every time you fill up your Loyalty Meter, it will award you 10 Loyalty Points. You can earn up to 1,075 Loyalty Points on myVEGAS Slots on Facebook in one gaming day.

In short, you can earn a grand total of 25,375 Loyalty Points across all myVEGAS apps in one single day!
