Deal Details

I'm about to make my annual trip to Vegas and I have compiled a spreadsheet of all the coupons available in the American Casino Guide [americancasinoguide.com] in order to maximize my slickvegasing.

I have arranged the list geographically (as if one were walking/driving from casino to casino.)

I would appreciate if anyone "in the know" could assist me with more locations or more coupons to be had, especially those for MatchPlay/FreePlay or those NOT found in the guide.

I have been checking our Vegas threads, but almost nothing was said about the free money & buffets, which is the only thing I'm interested in.

I plan to visit 27 casinos, buy $26 worth of coupons (for two people). Assuming a house edge of 2% on even money bets & 50% edge on slot play, that will net us a profit over $350 for 10 hours of work. It didn't work out for me to get the LVA book as well, which would have increased my profit by $300 without increasing the hours of work.

Please enjoy!

OP's VEGAS BLOG - how everything went when redeeming these coupons. [blogspot.com]

Note - The spreadsheet got too large for an attachment, so I made my changes to the google spreadsheet.

Highlights:

Free play offers for new members not included in total $: I didn't include these because, unlike matchplay or even regular slotplay, your chance of making money of this is slim to nil.
  • $200 freeplay at Hooters - only pays if you hit a jackpot
  • $50 freeplay at Casino Royale- only pays if you hit a jackpot


You can get the guide for about $10 + Shipping [a1books.com], from various sources or $12.89 + FSSS on Amazon [amazon.com].

VEGAS HOTELS WITH A BUSINESS CENTER [tripadvisor.co.uk] (for coupon printing on the fly)


You can buy an additional coupon book from Las Vegas Advisor for $37 [lasvegasadvisor.com], which includes even more gambling coupons (as well as dozens of other coupons). For procrastinators (like me!) this can be picked up in Vegas, and saves you the cost of shipping. Keep in mind you can only pick them up MONDAY - FRIDAY during business hours. Limit 1 per person, 2 per household.

Quote from zohyeahz View Post :
Matchplay is for table games:

Ex.

I bet $10 on RED in roulette, the casino gives me a $10 Matchplay (so, effectively, I am betting $20.) If I win, I get $20, so a $30 payout on a $10 even money bet.

Slot Play is free money to put in the slot machine. To maximize this, here is what you do.

$10 free slot play - Find a machine you like that is, say $2 per spin max bet. Put in your free slot play. Click max bet 5 times. Click cashout. Anything that cashes out is yours.

$45 in free slot play at Venetian. You have to do a little work to get it, but it's well worth it. If you're not already signed up for their slot club, sign up online and you will get $15 in free play. Use the coupon in American Casino Guide for an additional $15. There's also a coupon in American Casino Guide for a coupon book at the Venetian shops. You have to go to the Las Vegas Store in the shopping area to get it. There's another $15 coupon for free slot play in there. Use all three and that adds up to $45.

OK I just got my 2011 ACG in the mail. Keep in mind this is for 2011 so don't jump the guns yet people hehe. I'm just going to note the freebies or close to freebies so we have an idea if its worth buying. (Cost $12.89 on amazon with free shipping to prime members).
I'm just listing the vegas ones since this will remind me what to use when i hit it next year for celine dion's show (wifey likes her and I like vegas so it all makes sense, tickets are not cheap btw unless you join her teamceline club which i think there is a annual fee....can't win there)
Straight off the bat, the 2011 book will come with a ACG discount card that requires you to carry with u while redeeming the coupons, so yay no more carrying the whole book with ya! Does anybody sense a "let the coupon trading begin?" Hehe JK I'll delete that if its inappropiate.
Here we go: First off send the kids to Kid's Quest with the Buy 1 Hr Get 1 Hr Free, ok so thats two hours we got (Not sure if theres one in vegas)
2. Gold Strike 2 for 1 Entree or Buffet for Members
3. Grand Lodge $10 Free slot or Matchplay
4. Arizona Charlies 2 for 1 Breakfast or Lunch Buffet (one coupon for boulder and one for decatur loc)
5. Caesars palace Free T-shirt when u spend $40 or more at their shops?
-Also Free Caesar's Medallion at Rewards Desk Coupon (I hope its made of GOLD!!)
6. Clarion 2 Free Drinks at the Casino Bar (Well Drinks, umm I dunno bout that!!)
7. El Cortez 2 for 1 Room
- $10 Free Slot Play (New or Current Members!!)
- 50% off at the Flame Steakhouse (Max $25 off)
8. Ellis Island Play $10 and get $10 free play (kinda misleading, says present to players club and credit will be posted within 24 Hrs!! I won't last 24 hrs in vegas!! LoL
- 2 For 1 Menu Item or 50% off one item at rest or bbq
- 4 Free COCKTAILS at the casino bar (Notice how I cap lock the keyword hehe)
9. Emerald Island Free Gifts for new sign ups! (Nevada's only all penny casino as they claim)
- Emerald Island Grille 2 for 1 entree
- " " " " " " Free Dessert Special (And NO I don't think they will let you use both coupons unless you're a sweet talker)
10. Fitz free shot glass with new club sign up
11. 4 Queens Double Points up to 500 for Royal Club Members
- 2 For 1 Lunch or Dinner at Magnolia's
12. Golden Gate Free Deck of Cards when u join the 1906 players club
- $25 free play when u earn 100 pts or $5 for 20 pts
-$5 Match play (WTF is up with all these $5? it's cheesy and i think is a waste of my time! LoL)
13. Golden Nugget 2 For 1 Buffet (Mon-Fri)
14. Hardrock $10 free slot play and match play for new members ($20 total!!)
15. Longhorn $10 BJ matchplay
- 2 For 1 Lunch or Dinner Entree
- 2500 slot club pts for new members
16. Madame Tussauds interactive wax attraction 2 for 1 Gen Admission (Don't ask why hehe)
17. The Orleans $10 Table Match Play
- Two Showroom tickets for the Price of One
18. Palms $10 Free Slot Play for new members
- 3X Points for 1 day's play
- $10 Match play at any even money table game (BJ, craps, or roulette)
19. Paris Eiffel Tower 2 for 1 tickets
20. Sam's Town Earn 200 pts, get a free buffet (You keep the pts)
- 2 Free well, call, or draft beers at the casino bar
21. Silverton 2 For 1 Seasons Buffet
- $10 free slot play for new player's club plus an extra $10 if you provide a valid email address ($20 smackers!!)
22. Stratosphere 2 for 1 Tower Admission, Bite, or American Superstars (3 separate coupons)
23. Suncoast 2 for 1 Breakfast or Lunch Buffet
- 5X points for 1 day's play
24. Terrible's 2 for 1 Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner Buffet
- $10 Match play for any even money table game

So that's it, the rest are just $ off a certain shop or restaurant, so all in all, there's alot of B1G1 coupons.
The match plays are there but mostly $5, maybe the free slots are worth it more since you play at your own pace and not theirs or other peoples'.
Looks like I'm going after the Hardrock and Silverton's and maybe Palms deals, that's $60 off the bat, and I'm assuming since the Silverton is fairly new thus hoping their buffets will be decent Smilie

Ok I'm not going to figure out how to post a spreadsheet so I'll keep editing this one post Smilie
Hotel room deals, most of these are pay 1 night and get 1 night for free excludes weekends, holidays and special events...
I'm just going to list the hotels that provides coupons:
1. The Hacienda (Boulder City, NV
2. El Cortez $30 Rooms (Las Vegas)
3. Sam's Town pay for two get third night free Sun-Thurs (Las Vegas)
4. Silverton 20% off rack room rate (Las Vegas)
There's alot for laughlin NV
-Colorado Belle
-Edgewater
-Pahrump Nugget

Feel free to ask questions, this post have saved me money in the past, now is the time to contribute Smilie

Yes they're time stamped, and NO those are not all that's notable for 2011, I'm just being lazy Hehe
If you're heading there this Xmas, get the 2010 book, it's like $18 bux plus shipping but I think its still worth it, just remember to bring the whole book with ya as noted by others, as it's required and don't cut out the coupons in advance or it's voided. 2011 is different because they give you a card to carry as proof you own a ACG book so I think you can clip those coupons in advance.

Thanks for the heads up... I hope 2010 book is still worth it for one trip...

So during Xmas the 2011 book won't work yet? It won't work till January 1, 2011?

Correct, I hope so too, I just ordered the 2010 book but I might not be using it, check back with this post, I might resell you the book if we go new years eve instead of xmas Smilie

I second my own! You know what? all I see in the back of the coupon is an expiration date of 12/30/11. There is nothing else that states you can't use it today!!!!
I would recommend buy the book, bring it with you, and only cut out the coupons at time of use, makes them think you have the 2010 edition hehe.

**Update on that 2010 book from amazon: Don't buy it!! LoL It's from a third party, they guy states that there's marks on it, turns out there's no marks but the coupons on the back is completely taken out!! LoL I'm going to buy another 2011 ACG and run the coupons with my wife on New Years Smilie

Ok just came back from the New Years trip, it was too busy and crazy that I didn't have time to bust out my coupons, we did try the $10 off at Rio Seafood Buffet, but it's a NO GO, they don't accept coupons on holidays and they told us so. Food was salty but I got my money's worth with 4 plates of Lobster tails full of butter mmmmm the calories.......(I capitalized keywords)

Please post your success stories for 2011 Smilie I plan to make another trip during Spring Break!!! Yay!!

For 2011, the Las Vegas Advisor book was nowhere near as good as prior years. I hope that has changed.

If you get a chance, stop by the Gambler's General Store for the 2012 copy of American Casino Guide, which I believe has the best coupons available.

hooter's has $10 steaks, best steak in vegas you ask me. they also have $0.25 wings after midnight.

casino royale has $2 footlong hotdogs

circus circus, or something near it, has $2 heinekens, saying you don't gamble.

Earl or sandwich, in planet hollywood has some awesome sandwiches.

Downtown is hit or miss for some ppl, it's a different crowd, but they have several <$10 steaks.

i'd like a deal on some shrimp, anyone? crab legs?
