We all love free stuff, not matter what it is. Las Vegas is especially good at given free stuff. Good free stuff!
Here is the list, and how you can get it:
Free backpack and other goodies:
Ever hotel and casino in Las Vegas tries to get you to become part of their player’s club. Becoming a club member allows the hotel to track how much you spend on their machines, plus it also gives them the opportunity to mail you (or email you) their marketing material. It is a gold data mine for them. Several hotels were giving away travel backpacks. They retail between $20 to $30.00 each. Their free stuff usually varies from month to month. If you are traveling with you spouse, each one can enroll on their player’s club individually, so you can get two gifts.
Along with the goodies, several hotels gives you either free money in the form of a refund check or in the form of credit to play in their slot machines when you enroll on their players’ club. On my resent visit to Las Vegas, there were several hotels refunding back the first $100.00 that you loose on their casino. The refund would come in the form of a check that they would mail to you 4 to 6 weeks after your visit. (the catch here is that you would need to go back to the same hotel at a later time in order to cash your check, but if you are planning a second visit to Las Vegas, is free money nevertheless)
Free Food and Free Shows
Timeshares sales are very popular in Las Vegas and if you are willing to spend 2 hours of your time listening to a motivated sales person trying to sell you a timeshare, then you can really get compensated for your time. Most developers selling timeshare will give you 2 tickets to a Las Vegas show plus dinner for two at a popular buffet as long as you go to their presentation. Most of them allow you to pick the show you want to see from within a list of shows they have available. In addition, they even give you a free hotel stay as part of the package. When we went to Las Vegas, my wife and didn’t have anything planned for one of the days, so sit through one of those timeshare presentation and in return we got two tickets to a show, a buffet dinner for two and 4 nights hotel stay in St. Thomas, US Virgin Island. Not bad for two hours of your time.
Free room upgrades
If you are a gambler then you’ll have a great opportunity to get free room upgrades in most hotels in Las Vegas. Enroll in the player’s club and use your card every time you play a game of poker, or use the slot machine. One you have enough point earned, you can request an upgrade to your room or some other comps. Many times the courtesy hosts will directly ask you what sort of comps you prefer. (”Comps” is Vegas-speak for free things we like to give to gamblers to encourage them to keep gambling) If they don’t ask, and you feel you have been gambling respectably, feel free to ask yourself. Simply ask directly “So, what would a person want to do to get a room upgrade?” They might have a specific gambling “point” system, but most often the hosts have huge leeway in giving whatever comps they want to give. Be nice. You are asking for a favor. Hosts, along with every other casino employee, deal with drunken, cranky people all day, many of whom may have just lost their life savings and are quite unhappy.
As long as you are playing in the casino, you get unlimited drinks. From beers to alcohol is all free. It doesn’t matter if you are playing on a 1 cent slot machine, as long as you are sitting in front of a machine or a table, you can order as many free drinks as you wish.
Two for one deals
Many hotels, specially during the off season (summer) offer great insentives, to attract customers. Most of these incentives are two for one deals, where one person would pay for something and the second person would receive the same thing for free. This is the case for spa services, in house shows and clubs, and even restaurants. Here is a good links of the latest deals different hotels are offering in Las Vegas, including promo codes:
