Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Pyramid Suite  from  Pyramid Deluxe 

Arrived late night Monday, waiting in line for the next clerk.. me and my buddy go to the counter and Peter is there to help us out. We throw in a 50$ sandwich just to be on the safe side (as the tip failed for me 8 years ago at the Excalibur, didnt want to go 0/2). My buddy actually slings it without saying a word, the clerk looks back at another agent behind them on the phone and after a few keyboard strokes we were updated to the Pyramid Suite. Unfortunately we asked if they could wipe the hotel fee’s (110$US for 5 nights) and they said no.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Pyramid Suite  from  Pyramid Room 

I arrived around 6pm on Friday. The line was long so i didn’t really target anyone. When I was next I actually was on the phone and I handed the clerk my ID and my Card with a $20 in between, didn’t say one word to her, 1 minute later when I was off the phone she just stated as far as upgraded she can give me a Pyramid Suite. I took it. She then asked what the $20 was for and I replied, for the upgrade. She stated its mandatory to ask. I honestly did not think it was gonna work, glad I tried!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  tower double room(wifi)  from  pyramid single room(wired internet) 

No target, just randomly choose one, and tell him i want to upgrade. At first, he did it for me without looking at the sandwich i made,but later i told him to look at that, and he found it and express his appreciation.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Tower Suite  from  Tower Deluxe 

Just went to first clerk. Was friendly and asked for complimentary upgrade. She was only able to waive fee for early check in and I kindly declined and she asked me to come back in 2 hours after all rooms were cleaned. She said don’t stand in line, just come back to her. She then gave us a great upgrade.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Tower room  from  Standard room 

We checked in at 7pm on Friday 11/8/13. Went up to a young Asian man, did the $20 trick asked if they had any upgrades and he said they could only upgrade us to a tower room because it was veterans weekend.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Luxury suite pyramid  from  Queen pyramid 

We checked in at about 11am on a Monday. The line was long so we didn’t target anyone, just went with the next available clerk. We used the sandwich trick with a 20 and asked about upgrades. I told her me and my husband were there for our 10 year anniversary (which was true). She talked to her manager and upgraded us from a regular queen to a spa suite! She even gave us back our 20.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Pyramid Suite  from  Pyramid Deluxe Room 

– Which clerk did you target and why?
I was called in by a random clerk in her twenties.

– What time/day was it?
Saturday at 4:30pm.

– What did you say to get upgraded?
Upon being called up, I greeted the clerk with a warm smile and told her I was checking in. She asked me for my ID & CC and I asked \”I was wondering if you had any complimentary upgrades available\”. She saw the $20 bill and said \”Let me check that for you\”. We made small talk about the weather and she upgraded me from the most basic room to a suite with a hot tub (which we overflowed later that night, but that\’s another story).

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Jacuzzzzzzzzeeeeeee Suite Top Floor, Great Room  from  Standard 

It was easy, tip was presented as recommended and the clerk smiled and said one moment please. His next comment was I hope you like heights. My answer was “I love heights, I just out of perfectly good airplanes so I’ll feel right at home” It was the second floor from the top and it was so nice not having so many rooms on the floor. Great time !

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Premier Suite Plus adjoining standard room  from  Two adjoining Tower rooms, standard issue 

We actually got comped for one room and got the players discount for the other on our reservation with a casino host.

My first time trying the sandwhich, we got in at around 11pm, the normal line was long, but the MLife players club was only 3 deep. The woman behind the desk was great, took the money very subtley and proceeded to work and work to find the right upgrade, even calling another agent for help at one point. There were 4 of us booked, so she was trying to get us 4 beds, but with the couch etc, we just took the Single King premier and that was that. Great room, literally cost us $300 for the weekend w/ the comps, and I’m not a big high roller. I promise.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Pyramid Suite 25th Floor  from  Standard room 

Went to Vegas with 3 friends. My buddy heard about this trick from a friend of his who stayed at the Cosmo. My friend was the first to try it out of our group of 4. He walked up to the front desk clerk with the “sandwich” ($20 bill between his ID and his CC) and asked the clerk if they had any suites available (We all booked standard rooms through Priceline). He said they did and got an upgrade to a Pyramid suite on the 25th floor. He signal for the rest of us to do the same and we lined up behind him all with our sandwiches ready and each got an upgrade. 20 minutes later we each had a Pyramid suite and the clerk was $80 richer.
