· 3-4 Days: The American Casino Guide is a great book to purchase when you have a couple more days to take advantage of some excellent deals. You can pick this book up on their website, but I found it cheaper on Amazon ($11.71) and it has a lot to offer. [Ed. Note: Right now, the book is on sale from the ACG website for just under $10. It has $1,000 worth of coupons in the back.]
The first half of the book gives you information on every casino in the United States as well as some good articles and tips on gambling. The value comes in the back of the book where most of the coupons are for Las Vegas.
On my last trip I flew in on a Sunday so we stopped at the Silverton for the Champagne Brunch, which was $21.00 a plate. But, ACG had a 2-for-1 coupon so (since I had already paid for the book) I saved an additional nine bucks on one coupon!
· 5 or More Days: If you take a week-long trip (or if you're like me and come back several times a year) than a worthy investment would be a membership to the Las Vegas Advisor. The digital version of this runs $37 which gives you a monthly newsletter as well as access to all of their message boards and, most importantly, the pocketful of values!
This extensive coupon book gets better every year with the best deal being a $50 comp to the Palms (where if you spend up to $100, you get 50 percent off). If you’re a gambler, this book also contains many $10 free play coupons as well as other bonuses and coupons for table games.
The message boards always seem to provide me with a great coupon code to save money on my rental car, too, so for me this is a necessity in my Vegas arsenal.
