    I can't arrive until the 3rd.  It was cheaper than flying out on the 2nd, and saves me an extra day of hotel costs since I am staying until Sunday for all of CES. Looking forward to ZTE stuff though!

    Yes the sooner the better...the longer we wait the more expensive it gets.

    Agree... especially airfare and hotel... the later we purchase those, the more expensive things might get.

    its going to cost me and my wife $1500 for hotel and airfare as of right now i rather just have to pay for her

    I'll take a look in to this thanks

  • jasonscarterjasonscarter United StatesPosts: 1,784 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I had already booked, but I checked, and sadly, airports close to me don't have deals to Vegas.  Now, if I wanted to go to Baltimore, Maryland, they have a killer $49 deal!

  • mrknight85mrknight85 United StatesPosts: 649 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    wow thats messed up

  • runtohell121runtohell121 Analyst United StatesPosts: 2,229 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Any updates this week?

  • mrknight85mrknight85 United StatesPosts: 649 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    not as of yet

  • jasonscarterjasonscarter United StatesPosts: 1,784 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Yeah, I am still waiting for any details as well.  Where is everybody staying?

  • chuckbortchuckbort Chuck United StatesPosts: 585 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Wherever ZTE puts me!!

    Wishful thinking.

  • hollaphollap United StatesPosts: 8,376 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Hoping for details soon. Would be nice to know where to look for accommodations and flights. I know they are working hard on this.

  • jasonscarterjasonscarter United StatesPosts: 1,784 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I'm not going to make the 2nd, I get in late morning on the 3rd (provided no flight delays).  So I should be able to make that afternoon and dinner, then the group outing on the 4th.

    Since I already have a hotel and flight, and I am not sure what ZTE can do for me.  But I look forward to meeting everyone.  I am staying until the morning of the 8th if anybody else is going to CES as well and wants to meet up.

  • mrknight85mrknight85 United StatesPosts: 649 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    yeah flight and hotels are getting more expensive and the date gets closer

  • kennedy0201kennedy0201 MainePosts: 744 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Personally I'm not a flying kind of person so I would be sitting on a bus LOL. Expensive expensive

  • runtohell121runtohell121 Analyst United StatesPosts: 2,229 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    If you live far from Vegas, either flying, bus, train, or driving yourself could be expensive...

  • hollaphollap United StatesPosts: 8,376 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Any info on this yet, ​?

  • petershihpetershih ZTE Fanatic United StatesPosts: 378 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    We're still pushing, but no official start for the contest yet. It's getting close to November so we're equally uncomfortable. If all goes well, we'll have an update later in the week.

  • mrknight85mrknight85 United StatesPosts: 649 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    just pick me im ready

  • hollaphollap United StatesPosts: 8,376 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    My lowest flight has gone from $179 a week ago to $310 this week for the same flight   Thanks for being so diligent though

  • jasonscarterjasonscarter United StatesPosts: 1,784 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Am I the only one who has booked fully yet?  Show of hands?

  • kennedy0201kennedy0201 MainePosts: 744 ✭✭✭✭✭

    ​, the bus price isn't too bad. I live in Maine so its quite far, but it I wait and buy on an off day, the tickets round trip are around $280. Plus I get a discounted price off of that. The expensive part would be anything in Vegas, Lol

  • ironbaybeedollironbaybeedoll United StatesPosts: 4,614 mod

    ​ lol I saw $260 one-way on the bus 78 hour ride times 2, making it 156hours round trip $520. You can get a flight round trip $480, and only 8hours, 16 RT

  • runtohell121runtohell121 Analyst United StatesPosts: 2,229 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I can't imagine riding on a bus to Vegas from Maine... That's just too far for a bus ride; rather pay extra and take a plane to save on time. Depending on what you do in Vegas, it's not always expensive

  • runtohell121runtohell121 Analyst United StatesPosts: 2,229 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I haven't booked anything...

  • hollaphollap United StatesPosts: 8,376 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    I haven't booked anything because:

    1. I don't know if I can afford to

    2. I want to be close to the Hotel that ZTE is at, if not in it, and don't know where that is yet

  • fzrrichfzrrich United StatesPosts: 4,247 mod

    I'm with you   too many unknowns right now to book that trip   

  • frodriguez2010frodriguez2010 Enterprise Tech Support Engineer TexasPosts: 1,904 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Yep

    There's an important budget meeting on Wednesday to finalize our proposal, which includes big bucks. Your Mod Squad has been advocating for ways to subsidize travel costs for our most active and loyal customers. We're hoping for the best results and will update when we have the green light.
