In last weekend’s week in review around the web, I highlighted a post from Angelina Travels about how to get up to 7 free nights in Atlantic City this summer, and there may be more reason than you think to pursue casino free nights. After that post published, a reader reached out to share something awesome that happened for him: his free M life stay counted as elite qualifying nights for Hyatt. This has also happened…
