Coupons,coupons,coupons! Their use can save dollars on meals,shows,gambling, drinks, car rentals, room rates,attractions
nightclub cover charges,transportation..pick a legal Vegas activity and you can likely find a coupon for it. On our recent
(October 2008) Vegas trip, I calculated that use of multiple sourced coupons saved us about $600.00 during a 9 day stay.
We utilized many 2 for 1 dining coupons (buffets, food courts, specialty eateries), about 25 matchplay or free ace coupons,
several point multiplier coupons for slot play,free drinks, 2 for 1 shows , and one all-purpose comp worth $45 specifically.
We invested about $125.00 in these assorted coupons ..a considerable return to our Vegas budget. Redemption of a large
volume of coupons (like ours) requires some time and effort as you have to hit several casinos/locales. However, an old-fashioned "coupon run" can be enjoyable and most always helps obtain some savings.
There are multiple sources for obtaining coupons ; the best sources involve a modest investment. There are many free coupons located in several free tourist magazines such as What's On, 24/7, I Love Las Vegas, and Vegas Values.
Of these free sources, What's On is our favorite (the wife likes the pictures and articles) but Vegas Values has a website
feature allowing you to download coupons which would permit some advantages regarding trip planning before arriving. If you're a member of player's clubs (are you signed up yet?) you'll occasionally receive mailers that offer room rate deals and
coupons for assorted savings. At some casinos, player club signup will provide you with funbooks with coupon savings.
As you might expect, the best bulk sources for coupons require a modest membership or subscription signup fee;
in our opinion they're all more than worth the initial cost. Our best sources for these coupons are, in order of value to us
personally (we gamble and like matchplays and all the dining options these offer):
1. Las Vegas Advisor Pocketbook of Values (membership signup perk; 37$ online/ 50$ regular membership fees)
2. American Casino Guide (18.95 cost)
3. Casino Player Magazine ( $27.95 subscription cost)
*Vegas Trip Tip* Matchplay coupons are worth approximately 50% of face value (ie a 10$ matchplay has an expected
mathematical value / return of 5$). Collect all you can and use them if you play table games in Vegas.
