The Cosmopolitan is one of my favorite places to stay on the Las Vegas strip and is currently the strip’s only Marriott affiliated hotel. There are a few black out dates listed on the official promo page, but otherwise this seems like a good deal. I did a search and the discount ranged from $30- $100 per night depending on the room category. FoundersCard offers discounts at a few other hotels on the strip; Cromwell, Mandarin Oriental, Nobu and Caesars. Also, the VIP check-in saves a ton of time and has a really nice coffee machine.
If you decide to sign up and use our referral link, it’s greatly appreciated! The referral code is FCSHAWN593 and the special rate is $395 per year as opposed to $595. This is actually the lowest offer I have seen this year.
- All reservations have a 72 hour cancellation policy.
- For special rates members should access reservations through the FC booking portal. FoundersCard rates are subject to availability.
- 2018 Blackout Dates: May 5, 26, June 15-16, July 20, Aug 19, Sept 1, 15, Dec 30-31.
VIP Check-in is a great perk that has saved me a ton of time in the past, especially if you get there on a weekend. This is actually a good deal and a nice way to save some extra money if you don’t have any comps. Check out the Promotion page on FoundersCard. FoundersCard has something for everyone and there are plenty of other valuable membership benefits, most notably Total Rewards Diamond Status as well as AAdvantage Platinum Status.

I actually couldn’t agree with you more! I don’t know if you have ever noticed how many words it takes me to do one simple post (LOL) so this post and all the related concepts are in the works, it just may be a few more weeks. Thanks for the kind words!
its great to read your posts with many words. i assume its like talking to you IRL at a coffee shop. look forward to your other posts!
hey beth, its been great seeing your posts ever since you had joined the MtM team. this post is helpful, but u could make things 10x if you took at deep dive into the trifecta benefits between FoundersCard, Cosmopolitan, and Marriott. Meaning, taking a look at each individual loyalty program and see if anything can stack or enhance or not even bother via trip report. it would be very meaningful. u can even add in Amex FHR vs the others. for the most part, cosmo is a casino. marriott plat doesnt do much but there are still some benefits.
another good deep dive post would be to review Tropicana claiming to be a Double Tree Hilton which is a totally a BS licensing agreement that IME has been 3/10 or maybe even less.
I didn’t comment on the DT point, I actually didn’t know that. You’re referring to Trop in Vegas only, I assume?
yes. the Tropicana in Vegas. i encourage you to book a stay for science. you will see what I am talking about.
HH has the balls to actually call this property “Tropicana Las Vegas – a DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel”. Meaning, it doesnt sound like a loose “affiliation” but an actual HH property run as a DT. nothing could be further from the truth.
Thats like saying “Cosmopolitan – a Ritz Carlton by Marriott Hotel”. um. wat?
The Trop priority No.1 is being a casino and valuing VIP high rollers. Not babysitting HH Diamond business travelers with high hotel stays. they want high gambling coin-in. when you look outside of the hotel and even walk in, you have no clue there is a HH affiliation unless you look at the front desk where they have signs for HH Diamonds. its clear Trop is calling the shots. no HH DT logo in sight. but u do get the HH DT cookie. front desk have told me their priority is for Marquee Rewards VIP which is their own casino program running alongside HH at the same time.

Thanks for sharing these benefits. Never paid attention to the card before.
How do you see the member benefits for the card without giving out your information? I followed the above link, but it wants information that shouldn’t be required to simply view the benefits.
was hoping by including the link it would bypass that information page, I’m not sure I put my information in a long time ago and now I at least have access to see what the benefits are. Do you think it would be helpful if I included screenshots of the pages I’m referencing from now on?
Yes, or maybe just a synopsis of the benefits. Either would be lovely.
This benefit has been around for years.
Really? I don’t know why they send out emails announcing new benefits that aren’t new. Thanks!
Yeah it’s annoying. They randomly send me emails about “new” benefits that I have used for 2-3 years. Like the Total Reward status.
I used the cosmo one in 2015 and 2016.
