$20 Dollar Trick Las Vegas Room Upgrades

Not everywhere in Vegas offers the same odds to bag a room upgrade using the $20 dollar trick. Here’s how we rate the major Vegas casino hotels, with your percentage odds of a room upgrade, based on field reports from our Vegas Insiders.

How to do the $20 Dollar Trick?

20-dollar-trick-vegasWhen checking into your Las Vegas hotel put $20 dollars between your credit card and ID and hand it over to the clerk on check-in. Ask the clerk whether they have any “complimentary upgrades” available.

They will put the $20 dollars on top of their keyboard and try their best to get you an upgrade. Which can be an upgrade to a suite, resort fee waived, strip views and much much more!

Does the $20 Trick Work in Vegas 2019?

Yes, steps are below!

  • On check-in discretely put $20 between ID and Credit Card
  • Ask the clerk for any “complimentary upgrades”
  • Be polite and hope for an upgrade!

Front Desk Tip allows users like you to review what happened when they used the $20 dollar trick and what you were able to get (although at times, holiday weekends, there won’t be anything available and the clerk will return your $20).

Getting ready for Las Vegas? We recommend you brush up on your gambling skills (and also gamble responsibly). You can play a free blackjack game with real Las Vegas blackjack rules.

If you are traveling to Las Vegas, we recommend users use Uber & Lyft in Las Vegas. It’s a cheaper way to get around Las Vegas. Looking for the best Las Vegas day clubs or night club? We review the biggest and best clubs including the newest club Kaos at the newly renovated Palms resort. We also have recommendations on the best Las Vegas IV therapy for Vegas visitors that want to be hydrated or help with their hangover.
