Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  King Spa  from  Regular room 

Well it worked BUT NOT… Thought it worked until I got billed for the upgrade. So she took my money, lied to me, then charged me for upgrade.
It did work great the night before at Luxor…
But Beware at Stratosphere.
I did file a report with the manager. They did take it off the bill..

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  1 x Grand Suite, 1 x spa king room  from  2 x Spa King Room 

How it Happened: we had 2 rooms booked so i thought it only fair to up the tip amount as she was checking both of us in at the same time.went to the desk with my Mother who was totally bemused to what was going on with the $50 Done the usual between id and CC, then started chatting to the nice lady about where she was from and how her day was going, after building up a 3 minute rapour, i handed the cards with the $50 over where she could see, after she saw the $50 her eyes nearly hit the keyboard. she said she could put us in a Grand suite with connecting suite but there was no spa in the suite my mom really wanted a spa so she gave her the best king spa room on the top floor with a cool stripveiw. the grand suite was nice a little dated and a bit dark in there, but had seporate living area and bedroom, fridge, microwave?(what would i use this for LOL), the view was really nice of the mountains and the valley it was on las vegas BLVD side of the world tower building but the veiw of the strip was obstructed by the tower.(if we bent our heads a little bit we could just see a little of circus circus.)

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  what i paid for  from  Standard 

Well I did everything like it says to do… $20 between my drivers license and credit card, asked for complementary upgrade, she saw the $20 and said “you dropped this” i said “that’s for you” She smiled and said thank you then told me that there were three upgrades available for the cost of $40, $70, and $100 a night… feeling quite stupid i took the $40. On a side note the Strat is a filthy place with poor air conditioning and i will never stay there again. I’ll try this trick again at a better hotel in a few months.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Standard non-smoking  from  Standard non-smoking 

Got there about 11 in the morning on 07-07-07. Finally got up to the check-in counter where there was an older, yet attractive woman working. I had my CC and license out with the $20 clearly visible and told her that my GF and I had decided to get married this trip and were curious if there were any complimentary upgrades available. Without even looking up from her screen she told us that all of the suites were taken for the rest of the week.

It didn’t cost me anything, and something tells me that if it hadn’t been 07-07-07 with the shitload of weddings going on in Vegas, plus the hordes of other superstitious gamblers, we may have had a shot.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  World Tower w/ Mini Suite  from  World Tower 

I booked through Southwest Vacations and that may be why the upgrade was insubstantial. The room was slightly larger than a friend’s World Tower room, and came with a small side-annex where we could play cards.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Premier Tower /w Jacuzzi + Comp Buffet  from  World Tower 

I booked the deal through thier promo 007VEGAS. It already had 2 for 1 buffet. While checkin, first I gave her my ID. Then while talking to her I gave my cc and beneath that I had 20 bill. I asked if there are any upgrades available. She saw the bill and smiled but didn’t take it. Instead she told be that I could get upgrade stated above for 10$ per night. I was happy. After that I asked her about 2 for 1 buffet coupon and when she printed it out after some troble at printer, it had both the complementory buffets for free. I was happier.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  premier tower  from  standard tower 

Checked in at 2P.M. Did the $20 and got upgraded to the premier tower with a downtown view. Suites not available, convention in town (40,000) people. Stayed 2 nights at Strat.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Player's Suite for $15 more  from  standard 

I read about this trick on this and other sites and decided to give it a try. Me and my girlfriend walked up to the clerk and talked to her for a little bit and asked for any complimentary upgrades. While she was looking, I handed her my CC and $20 hidden underneath it. When she took the credit card she looked at the $20 and I said “That’s for you” and she gave me a look like she understood what I was giving it to her for. She found an upgrade to the Player’s Club room that was usually $75 dollars more a night and said she could give it to me for $15 more a night. On second thought, I should have pushed for more or at least tried to get this room for free, but being a rookie i agreed to the upgrade. The room wasn’t that much nicer, it felt like a regular room with a SMALL living room attached. I’d still try the trick again, but this time I wouldn’t settle at the first offer…but it does work.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  2 players rooms & 1 Premier Tower - Deluxe Rooms  from  3 Regency Tower - Deluxe Rooms 

We arrived at 3:00pm and the lobby was packed. I was skeptical about the trick since there were so many people in line and it was my first time trying it but money TALKS. I slipped a $50 between my credit card and id and ask if there were any complimentary upgrades. He started typing away. Sure enough it was a SUCCESS!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  World Tower (next class of room)  from  Regency Tower (cheapest) 

I gave the check-in girl some sweet banter in my plum English accent, slipped her $20 and she gave it me back – said she’d “Look after” me regardless and couldn’t/wouldn’t take it. Upgraded me to the next class of room (far nicer, in the Strat) for the duration of my stay, even during CES week.
