Different Ways to Save Money on a Las Vegas Vacation

Begin at the Beginning

Never underestimate the usefulness of planning a vacation in advance, especially if you're short on dough. Planning in advance gets you cheaper travel options, cheaper hotel rooms, and cheaper means to have fun.
Plus, make the Internet your best friend, and you're sure to find discount coupons for meals, casinos, clubs, and even hotel stays. If you really want to avoid the jostling crowds along with the escalated costs, avoid going to Vegas on weekends or public holidays.
Weekdays, in comparison, are cheaper and relatively quieter. There are several packaged deals that club airfare, hotel stays, and entertainment, which rate high on the value-for-money factor.

Don't Assume Vegas to be Expensive

Not many things come to us for free, in Las Vegas. But open your eyes and look around closely, and you'll find a lot of freebies up for grabs. Here's what's in store - the musical fountains at the Bellagio, the sound and light display at Fremont Street, M&M's World, the Volcano at the Mirage ... all of which spell quintessentially Vegas, and completely free.

Make the Most of Your Stay

The hotel you'll be camping at may have several promotional offers going on, and you need to keep an eye out for these. Most of these cost savers may come in the form of discounted rooms, suite upgrades, show tickets, spa credits, complimentary meals, sightseeing, etc.

Play a Fine Gamble

You're planning a holiday to the gambling destination of the world, so you need to play your cards well. Excuse the shoddy pun if you may, but if you're here with the sole and serious intention of gambling, do ensure that you aren't taken for a ride.
If you are flying into Las Vegas, turn a blind eye towards the slots at the airport, as they carry a reputation for having the worst odds. Also, you may want to give the slot machines a complete miss altogether. It is recommended that you try blackjack or roulette, that carry better odds.

Get Wasted Wisely

Getting wasted is on everyone's agenda when they come to Vegas, and I'm sure it's on yours too. Boozing, like all things fun, is expensive here in Las Vegas. Unless, of course, you know where to find your freebies. Most casinos offer complimentary drinks to their patrons, so be on the lookout for waiters serving cocktails in here.
