10 Travel Tips From Someone Who Logs 200,000+ Miles Each Year

One of the best things about travel is getting to meet other people. And every now and then, you luck out and meet someone who starts a conversation that leads to amazing travel advice.

I didn't know about the talcum powder trick. The $20 idea is good but I'd also say keeping a crisp $100 somewhere is also a solid practice. One time in Frankfurt I couldn't get one of my bills exchanged because it was an older style. Now I try to bring only new cash and use my cards whenever possible.

M life games

When considering a trip to Las Vegas, I'm always looking for ways to reduce my cash outlay. While this doesn't count as travel hacking in my book, I'm all in if I can catch some discounts or freebies.

Here’s some information I’ve cobbled together so far using the M life games that are available on Facebook and as apps:

- There are 4 different games you can play to earn coins/points
    - myVegas Slots
    - myVegas BlackJack
    - POP! Slots
    - KONAMI Slots
- Each game gives you free coins and bonuses every day you open each app
- If you link them to your Facebook account, all of your coins go into one pot
- You need a M life account number to redeem your points but you can play without one
- Register for a M life account at https://www.mlife.com/en/sign-up.html
- You can pickup your M life card from a M life counter at any MGM property
- To redeem a reward, you need: your driver’s license, M life card, and your myVegas reward purchase confirmation number
- You need to go to the reward location’s M life counter to have the it loaded to your card
- You can only redeem three myVegas rewards every rolling 30-day period
- You can earn discounted items, buy one get ones, or fully comp’d tickets and rooms
