Got this from Flyertalk, think it'll be useful here.
Hotel Promo Codes http://www.mycheapvegas.com Tip #1: Most hotel reservations are 100% refundable as long as you refund 48-72 hours prior to arrival. Book the cheapest you can find and rebook if needed. Tip #2: Some promos give you stuff like resort credits, dining credits, free buffets etc. Most of them require a 2 night min stay. If you are staying 4 nights or longer, you can max this out by booking 2 separate reservations under different names to get twice the bonus. You can combine reservations when you check in.
$20 Trick - Free Hotel Upgrade http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/travel-discussion/529706/ For those who don't know what this is, basically a bribe to get a free upgrade on your room. When you check in, you place a $20 between your id and credit card, or in your passport and casually ask them for an upgrade. If they can do it, they'll accept the money, if they can't, 99% of the time they will return your money. It's better to know what you want. The thread above gives more details and successes.
restaurant.com Gift Certificates http://www.retailmenot.com/view/restaurant.com - for promo codes Notable Restaurants: Strip Burger (Usually sells out within first 2 days of the month, and also no discounts) Hash House a Go Go (Giant delicious-heart-attack-inducing portions) Mix (The view is amazing) BB King's Restaurant & Blues Club (For some nice live blues)
Rental car is easy, what dates are you going? That guide is very good, but I usually find the best deals 2-4 weeks before the actual dates. I usually book about a month in and then rebook as prices go down.

How do I get the 2 separate reservations under different names to work if I am traveling alone?
I really don't think you can. You can try not combining reservations, but that means you'll have to check in and out, which means you might have to wait around for a new room, and even then, it's not guaranteed you'll get both the bonuses.
Another option is just to stay at 2 separate hotels. For example, do 2 nights at Vdara, 2 nights at Aria or something. For extra $100 dining credit, I'd definitely be willing to do that. Which hotel are you looking to stay at and which promo are you looking at?

There are quite a few hotels with dining/resort credits with a min 2 night stay. That's the sweet spot. I wonder what would happen if I have two(or more) back to back reservations under my name and try to combine them?
If you go to Vegas more than once a year and gamble the rewards programs offered by caesar for deals on hotel rooms are very hard to beat.

Thank you op and everyone! Booked the flamingo and saved about 40 bucks for my recent stay. Got a total rewards card, played some lots and hit a few good jackpots! I already have some comp offers when me an my wife combine our cards. Also loved hash house.
If you like offstrip or downtown, the Boyd gaming properties love to give out free rooms too. I've stayed at Orleans and Gold Coast for free with my $5 and $10 blackjack play. Properties are pretty nice and cheap gaming.

Wanted to add another site that I use. Lastminutetravel.com has good deals sometimes. Got free membership a few weeks back and I think they give them out a few times a year. Seen some great deals that way.
I haven't been to the buffet, but I've only heard good things about it. When are you planning to go? Like all the new buffets, they tend to go downhill over time, so I suggest you try it soon if you can. I'll be heading there early January so can give you a better review then if you're going after me.
myVEGAS Facebook Game You can get a buncha free rewards like buffets, rooms, shows, drinks, etc. Basically collect chips, play the game, earn loyalty points, redeem rewards. Not sure how long it'll last though but so far so good.
Here's a good page with guide and tons of free chips and stuff too.
Been playing for about 2 months so pretty comfortable about it, so feel free to pm me if you need help.

Thanks for the great resource! This myVEGAS game looks really interesting. Have you made any redemptions yet? Just want to make sure its 100% legit and not gonna fail before I start playing this game. I remember there used to be another game that gave out real rewards before too but that died pretty quickly.

I'll second the myVegas game on facebook. I'm not a facebook fan for business pages but that game they have makes this a better fan page.

I started playing 2 days ago and I'm already at 8000 LP. It's really addictive though. Still have 40k chips too, hope I'm doing alright compared to everyone.
This game is legit, redemptions are easy enough with the odd problems due to lack of training by the staff, but I think this is getting corrected right now. And I think the other game was called Wager Works or something like that. Don't think it lasted long though.

The magazine that everyone has in the hotel room for shows, tours, dining, etc the magazine has a complete list of shows, restaurants, and just about everything else that might be of interest to the Las Vegas visitor. Las vegas hotels
In Vegas now and here's a tip, it costs $4 at the MGM for a coke from the fridge, but the fridge is stocked full so you can't use it. It's worth the $4 so that you can buy a small space to put stuff...aka remove the coke and put things on the weighted square. I've already kept my mixed drink cold, kept my room service club sandwich that I couldn't finish fresh, etc with it.
It seems like the most useful $4 I can spend to get a square. I keep the "privacy please" thing on the door so the hotel staff doesn't come in and stick another coke on it.
We should also have an "I'm drunk" thread on here.
onically, even though you'll want to wear as little as possible -- like shorts, tank tops and sundresses -- in the scorching heat, especially when you're walking down the Strip or Fremont Street, be warned that when you enter a casino, you'll likely freeze. It's easy to become spoiled by living in Las Vegas since most businesses stay open late or even 24 hours.
