Best Vegas Deals
Try a Vegas Player’s Card
No trip to Vegas would be considered complete without a good amount of gambling and the best Vegas secret is to gamble on a Las Vegas Player’s Card.
It helps in accumulating redeemable points as you gamble. With enough points, you can snag great deals, like free shows, meals, or even rooms! This is a must-do if you plan to return; it also greatly incentivises a return trip for visitors.
Always Keep an Eye Out for Online Deals
We all know nothing is worse than having your heart set on a show just to discover it’s sold out. However, online early-bird discounts can help and sites like Las Vegas Jaunt or Expedia often post discounts for a wide array of attractions.
Drink at Casinos
Are you up to experience one epic “The Hangover” movie-like experience? A lot of people hit the clubs for drink-filled nights but end up spending tons of money once there because club drinks are spendy. One of the best Vegas hacks is to pre-game at the casinos because a lot of them offer free drinks to anyone who is gambling, even if you’re spending time on the penny slots.
So, our suggestion is to head to the club (via an Uber, walking or public transportation) once you’ve had a few cocktails at the casino. You’re primed and ready to dance the night away at one of our infamous dance floors.
Head Off the Strip for a Night
The first thing we ask anyone where they were in Vegas, we always get the same answer – the Strip.
Of course, no trip to Vegas would be complete without visiting this area, but one can find better deals elsewhere, and off-strip to-do’s are also popular. Places like the Container Park for shopping or Fremont Street attractions are the next-best bet for family fun. Don’t forget to download the DTLV smartphone app where you can earn points and redeem rewards at shops, restaurants and attractions.
Use Lyft or Uber
Do you have a long list of must-sees while you’re in Vegas? Most of the things you want to do are located right on the Strip in walking distance. Not everyone wants to walk in their Jimmy Choo heels or Berlutti Scrito slip-ons for hours on end so you may want to plan out some transportation.
Both Lyft and Uber are popular modes of transportation in Las Vegas and no one usually faces any problem finding a ride, even if it’s 3:00 in the morning. Another bet is they’re cheaper than a taxi.
Only Visit Highly Rated Shows
While searching online you’re bound to find a few Vegas shows that pique your interest. Not all shows are worth the price of admission. We recommend checking what is popular and available before you’re wheels down at McCarran Airport. Visit Vegas.com/shows to see ratings and prices for the shows on your list.
Don’t assume that because a show is expensive, it has to be good. There are plenty of overpriced bad shows and, at the same time, amazing Las Vegas shows that are affordable.
Buffet of Buffets Deal
Seafood, Italian, Asian? Vegas buffets are famous for their convenience and affordability. However, it is always helpful to check the best Buffet Deals available at the time of visit. If you want the nitty gritty details on who’s having what on the buffet for the day and pricing, you can find a comprehensive list of what you’re “hangry” for on Travel.com.
Book in Advance
Do you already know when you want to go to Vegas? Well, in that case, pre-booking will save you money! One of the best Vegas hacks to save money is by booking your trip as early as possible to save the best on airfare and hotel deals.
Vegas Post COVID: Rules and Guidelines
While there is much excitement and anticipation attached to the Vegas re-opening, it’s important to remember that we are still observing certain COVID health and safety precautions. There is a comprehensive set of guidelines and rules on the LasVegasNevada.gov website that advises on the safety of guests/travelers and in-house employees.
Ready to Save?
Who isn’t ready to do more with less? When it comes to saving money, a little planning on your part can mean substantial savings in a place where people throw dice and risk it all on a bet. Come home with some pocket change. Let us know if you find a great deal we should know about and post it on our social media. We all like insider information!
