Saved:  $800 Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Piazza Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

WE didnt target a specific clerk we didnt arrive til just after midnight so it was fairly quiet.

We had a female clerk who seemed friendly and chatted.

We followed our usual rules and asked her what kind of room we had, she said a luxury suite (standard) this is when my husband flashed the $50 and asked her if they had any upgrades.

She said she would check and went into the back. It did take her a while to find us a room and she really was trying to get us something better she even went to ask her manager.

She eventually came back to say they had found us a piazza suite which was 1400sqft compared to the luxury which was only 650. She showed us on the tablet the pictures and i knew this was a nice room. We got a strip view looking towards the wynn and down at the pools. I asked if she could do anything about the resort fees and she said she couldnt.

I was happy with what we got it would of cost us a hell of a lot more to pay for that suite upfront.

Was this an epic upgrade?

Saved:  $432.00 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Rialto Suit  from  Luxury Suite 

Checked it at 3pm on Sunday using IHG Rewards Member counter. There were only 2 agents at the desk so we just went to whomever was free.
Slipped $20 between ID and Credit Card. She asked if we wanted change and we said no. She asked if we were here celebrating anything special. We told her we’re here for our 10th wedding anniversary and just asked if there were any complimentary upgrades available.
We were offered a Rialto Suite Venezia Tower Strip with mountain View for no additional charge or a 1400 square foot suite for an additional $100 a night on top of our original reservation. We opted for the Rialto as we did not forsee ourselves in our room much. It was perfect!

I didn’t get to pick a clerk as all were busy so it was just the first one that became available. It was a Monday evening around 8pm. When the clerk asked for the credit card and Id I handed both over with the 20 sandwiched in and politely asked and was told he would check. He couldn’t upgrade our room style but put us on a higher floor with views of the strip and mountains. He waived the charge for this and waived the resort fees

Check in on Monday evening and was fairly busy so couldn’t pick a clerk. I placed $20 between ID and credit card and asked for politely if there were any complimentary upgrades available. The clerk put the $20 to one side and asked a few questions about how far we travelled and if it was our first time in Vegas then said yes he can upgrade us. The clerk put us on a higher floor with views of the strip and mountain range in the distance. The clerk waived the resort fee charges and the charge for the upgraded room with view

Saved:  $~150 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Piazza Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

I checked in on a busy Friday right around 3pm and didn’t get to target a clerk in particular, but wound up with a guy in his 20s. He asked if I needed any change when he saw my 20 and I said no. After speaking with a manager he offered me up a free upgrade to a Piazza suite. I asked for a late check out and he said he could only do one for 12pm b/c the suites were completely booked for Saturday. As an alternative, I could’ve taken a standard room with a 6pm checkout but I took the bigger room. The room was huge with a view of the strip.

Saved:  $$1400.00 Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Unsure  from  Unsure 

We had booked through a third party vendor (Alaska Airlines) with flights and hotels together. Our preference had been to book the Venetian but we found better rates at the Palazzo and booked there.

I had found this website and was intrigued. This was our second time to Las Vegas and I had tried for an upgrade at the Aria (using a $20.00) without success and they kept the $20.00.

We arrived late on a Saturday and checked in around 9:30. I had folded a $50.00 under the Credit Card and went in with a “whatever happens, happens attitude”.

When asked for our Credit Card I handed both over and politely asked if there were any upgrades available. The clerk seemed appreciative and stated that we had booked during a perfect time for an upgrade.

We were asked if we were celebrating any special occasion; Birthday, Anniversary? This seemed to be important to the desk clerk. My wife stated that we had recently celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary (which we had 7 months earlier). The clerk then left and went to the back.

After approximately 5 minutes he returned and was pleased to offer us an upgrade from the suite we had booked, to much larger suite at the Venetian (our initial preference)

We were told that our original suite was approximately 650 square feet and that our upgraded suite was 1550! We were also advised that the upgrade fee for the room was $350.00 per night and that this fee was waived. Considering that we were staying four nights, the $50.00 investment was our best play the whole trip.

The suite (35309) was awesome. Full living area with a separate wet bar, additional half bath, three flat screen televisions, huge living room, powder room and massive master bath with dual shower, sunken tube, his and her vanities and private water closet.

Very pleased with the outcome and will try this again in the future.

After reading most of the recent blogs I would not try anything less than a $50.00 for a higher end property, I don’t think $20>00 would have done it for us but that is just my opinion.

I checked in at 9am on the Thursday before the Super Bowl and targeted a young female clerk. I handed her the $50 sandwich and she slid it under the keyboard and started typing away.
She offered me a recently renovated room at the Palazzo, which I declined, but she was able to put my wife and I on the 30th floor with a strip view at the Venetian.
In addition she waived the resort fees, had a mini-fridge delivered to the room, comped is the upgraded internet, and gave us a late checkout.
The upgrade was epic, the customer service was outstanding, and we will look forward to retuning asap!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Rialto Suit  from  Luxury Suite 

We checked in around 11 AM on a Friday morning. Line wasn’t very long. We were directed to a clerk, so not able to pick. Ended up with a young female. Handed her the “sandwich”. She asked if we needed change, I said no, she said “thank you…let me see what I can do for you.” She was very friendly. We chatted a bit and she ended up getting us an early check-in to a Rialto Suite on the 31st floor overlooking the strip and with a view of the High Roller. She also waived the Resort Fee, saving us $140! We were very pleased with the results of our first attempt of this “trick”.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Luxury Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

We checked in at 2:00pm. I had my ID+$20+credit car in my pocket already. When we walked to the front desk, I handed the $20 sandwich to her and only said “Hi”, then we saw her were typing like crazy. We got the room at 33 floor. It has a pretty nice view( sorry first time here, so don’t know if there are any better view or not. ) notthing like other people a huge upgrade or free inroom dinning, but got a pretty good view. it was good enough for us.

We checked in at midnight on a Friday. Even at midnight there was a slight line and probably 10 registration clerks working, so did not have a choice of clerks.
We asked for the clerk to waive our resort fees for our 3 night stay and she said she couldn’t do that as “they were now hard coded into the system”. I’m not sure if that’s true. She upgraded our view to a premium view and gave us late checkout. She then asked if we needed change for our money and we told her it was for her so she discreetly dropped the twenty in her pocket. She was very nice.
