Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Indigo Tower Suite  from  Indigo Room 

When I arrived at Bally’s at around 6pm, the front desk was extremely busy with a long line of people waiting to check in. I dropped my bags with the bellhop desk and went out to dinner. I came back to the front desk around 10pm. There was no one in line and I picked a guy behind the desk who looked like he was around 35-40 years old. I folded a $50 bill and placed it between my credit card and drivers license. He asked if I was there to check in, I said yes and he asked for ID. I handed him the “Vegas sandwich” and he set it down on the counter next to his keyboard. I asked, “Would you mind looking into any available upgrades to my room?” He replied, “Sure… let me see what we have available. How about a suite?” To which I agreed that would work out just fine. He picked up my ID and credit card, handed them back to me and put the $50 in his pocket. We thanked each other and I was on my way. Room was nice, big, it had a living room, dining area, wet bar, bedroom, two bathrooms, a dance studio (which seemed odd) and a really nice view of the Vegas strip. The only thing that would have been a better upgrade, is to get that type of room in the newer Jubilee Tower. But I wasn’t complaining.

Didn’t target any specific clerk, but got the one I wanted. Younger woman. Mid twenties. Checking in a little early.

Had my 20 sandwiched but it was sticking out a little on the side. Didn’t have to ask for an upgrade. The great clerk got searching immediately. Offered junior suite or jacuzzi suite. Took the junior since it had a strip view on a higher floor.

Did exactly what others on this site have mentioned. Slipped in a $20 and got a suite upgrade from a regular room.

Saved:  $$100/night Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Indigo Junior Suite  from  Indigo Room 

There was no line at check-in but there were only a couple people working.
I approached the guy who happened to be wearing a Broncos Jersey. It was 8:30pm Sunday check-in, I already had an offer for 3 complimentary nights and a friend who was staying at hotel who arrived earlier. The desk clerk told me there was no fridge in room so all I asked for was a room with a fridge. He ended up putting us in a Jacuzzi suite and said he would have a fridge sent up to the room. Within 5 minutes a gentleman rolled a cart with a fridge on it into the room. I tipped him as well and left $5/day for housekeeping. I believe in good Karma. It definitely made our stay one of the best.

3 pm last friday, 9/3, I approached the diamond check in, (i’m Diamond) and had the $20 in very obvious plain view sticking out of my chest pocket. “Hello, do you have any complimentary upgrades?”… And there we have it, jubilee grand suite. Nice!

Saved:  $about 200 hundred a night Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Unsure  from  Unsure 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We read this thread and in anticipation of our trip to Vegas in February I stoked myself up to try the 20 dollar sandwich. Firstly, we arrived at 11:00 on Sunday morning and the woman informed me check in didn’t start till 2:00 pm and it was a 26.00 fee to check in early. I handed her the sandwich and asked if there were any complimentary upgrades. We were paying 36.00 for 2 nights (pre-resort fee) and 41.00 the other 2 nights.
She happily upgraded us to a corner suite that was about 650 square feet. We also didn’t have to pay the 26.00 early check in fee. The room had a washroom, a room with just a bidet, 2 walk in closets, a huge living room area, a big sunken jacuzzi tub. 2 make up counters.
We also decided to stay an extra night and for a 10 dollar sandwich got the room for 36.00 for the Thursday night from a different counter person.
We learned the room was 240.00 per night for the Thursday night and they gave it to us for 36.00.
One of the best parts was walking down past the check in counter at about 2:30 the day we arrived. The line up was about 40 people long. Had we not got the upgrade we would have been in that line as I wouldn’t have paid 26.00 to check in early. That alone was worth the sandwich, never mind the fabulous room.
Again, thank you for this amazing tip.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Jubilee Grand Suite  from  Jubilee Room Strip View 

First, let me tell you I THOUGHT i was booked in to Harrah’s, but that’s a whole nother story. When I tried to check in at Harrah’s I was routed to the high end check in lady and she politely said she was not allowed to do the upgrade. So, by the time I went to Ballay’s I was quite flustered. The young lady at the front desk at about 6:00PM was very nice and accommodating. Upgraded to a gorgeous suite overlooking the strip. Plus when I got home and opened my bill, surprise!, $56 in resort fees waived! I already had a nice room comp’d from minimal gambling on the Rewards card in New Orleans, so it was a giant comp on top of a comp

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  North Tower Jr. Suite  from  South Tower King Standard 

So arrived on Wednesday at about 5:30 pm. The line was fairly long and I was bummed out I hadn’t gotten there earlier. I didn’t have a choice of clerk but I got this really lovely African American gentleman who was super cheerful and nice. I handed him my $20 “sandwich” and he immediately saw it. He said he was looking for a great room for me. I knew I didn’t have to say anything and that he got the message just with the tip. I joked that I was bummed out about the resort fees. I was staying alone for 5 nights and he got me a Jr. Suite on the 21st floor. It had a great view down the strip of the new Linq. I was super pleased. BUT WAIT! There’s MORE! I was checking out today and I went to my TV screen to check out my bill. He had given me a credit to cover my resort fees and he hadn’t even told me he was doing it!!! Loved him! Was a total surprise. This is the third time I’ve gotten an upgrade at Bally’s. The first time I was staying 10 days and got an upgrade for $20 for the entire time. Very, very pleased.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Jubilee king  from  Indigo king 

Forgot the name of the young girl, but I arrived
late on Friday, around 1030pm. I didn\\\’t know if anything would even be left. But I handed her the tip sandwich ($20), and asked about upgrades. I was upgraded to Jubilee towers at no additional charge. I booked indigo towers for $75 a night (early reservation), so getting a room that usually runs closer to $150 per night on weekends was substantial enough for me. Jubilee towers are the newly renovated rooms of Bally\\\’s. Highly recommend, and will definitely do this again!
