VEGAS.com Turns Your Baggage Fee In To Baggage Free

(LAS VEGAS, June 2, 2010) -- VEGAS.com, the world's largest destination travel web site, is encouraging Vegas visitors to travel heavy this summer and take advantage of its exclusive baggage rebate offer. Those who book an air + hotel vacation package on VEGAS.com from now until June 21 will receive a rebate check of up to $50, just for filling their suitcases. The baggage rebate promotion is good for bookings made from June 2 through June 21 for stay dates June 2 through Aug. 31, 2010.

For travelers in need of ideas for their extra-large Vegas vacation packing list, VEGAS.com suggests several essentials for the hot desert nights: an Elvis jumpsuit, lava lamp, as many pairs of designer shoes as possible, golf clubs, a briefcase full of one-dollar bills, a collapsible massage chair, the giant stuffed Shrek you won at the county fair, and of course sunscreen.

"Everything in Vegas is over-the-top, so why should your luggage be any different" said Howard Lefkowitz,

president and CEO of VEGAS.com. "Through the baggage rebate promotion, VEGAS.com allows its customers to be fully prepared for all the fun and excitement of our city. Personally, with the extra space, I would pack my favorite pillow… it's memory foam."

Upon booking a qualifying air + hotel package on VEGAS.com, guests will receive a confirmation email with detailed instructions on how to claim their rebate. VEGAS.com will mail rebate checks directly to its customers, at a rate of $25 per bag and up to $50 per order. For more details and packing suggestions, visit www.vegas.com/baggagefree.
