I dont think trump is allowing the 20 dollar font desk trick any more.
the clerk i talked to picked my 20 out of the sandwich and said “what is this”, and she placed it on the counter to give it back to me, and offered to upgrade our room from city view to strip view. but that’s the most they can do .
if we wanted to be upgraded to a 1 bed room for corner bedroom we would have to pay 50 more per night for it, the corner bed room would be 20 dollar more then the 1 bed room.
So I walked into the Trump Hotel line to see 5 different hotel clerks helping customers. I was eye-ing a younger man (looked 23) to try the “sandwich,” but was rerouted to another available male clerk. Doubtful at first, I told him that I was checking in for two nights and handed him the sandwich. I calmly asked, “Do you have any complementary upgrades available”, which he replied “Let me check.” By this time, he totally saw the $20 bill and did something like a ninja trick to hide the $20 bill and hand me back my ID and CC. After a few seconds, he printed out the confirmation page, which showed the upgrade to the one bedroom suite!! He even asked if we wanted a late checkout from 11AM to 2PM. Sweet!! The extra 3 hours was totally worth it since the GF and I used that time to lounge by their awesome pool. Definitely trying this again at my next Vegas trip.
If this is your first time reading this, DO IT. You have NOTHING to lose! If they can’t find you an upgrade, they will most likely return your money.
I walked into the lobby, went to the front desk where I was greeted by a friendly young man. I gave him the $20 sandwich when he asked for my ID and Credit card and when he took it from me, I asked if there were any complementary upgrades available. He put the $20 to the side and told me there was a rather large conference there for the week and he would do whatever he could. I was given a higher floor room with a Strip view and he told me next time he’s sure he could get me an ever better room (they were all booked due to the convention). Worked great!
Checked in on a Friday and sandwiched the money in-between, asked for a complimentary upgrade and he said we could upgrade for a 1-bedroom for $40/night. Otherwise, we were already booked for a city view (away from the train) so there wasn’t much he could do. Not sure if they were booked or whatnot, but he implied that 1-bedrooms would open up the next day. Since we were only staying 2 nights, wasn’t worth the trouble to ask the next day. He also placed the money back on the counter in full view, but close to his side. I’ve never seen that done before, so I didn’t take it back.
Flight touched down in Vegas about 5:00pm and got to the hotel around 5:45 on Friday evening. There were a few people ahead of us in line and I didn’t really have the option to choose the clerk. While waiting in line I showed my girlfriend the $20 bill sandwiched in between my AMEX and drivers license and said “let’s see if we can get any upgrades”. She immediately freaked out and walked about 30 feet away from me in complete and total embarrassment while I went to go check in. Not to be deterred, I calmly handed the $20 sandwich over to the clerk who was cool as can be about the entire situation. I told her that my girl friend and I were in town for our anniversary and wanted to see if we could get something with a view of the strip. She ended up upgrading us to a 1 bedroom suite on the 36th floor with a bathroom that was bigger than my first apartment. She also gave us a $50 spa credit that my other half used for a massage the following morning. Couldn’t have worked out any better, I will definitely be utilizing the $20 trick the next time I’m in LV.
I was in line and got this smiley latin american hostess. Did the sandwish with a twenty. Pulled it quickly and put it next to the keyboard as she typed my name in. I told her I had heard about the train and that given that my girlfriend and I were celebrating our second anniversary, I wondered if it were possible to get something as far from it as possible.
She checked and told me I had booked a city view room but could offer me a large 1 bedroom high floor for fifteen a night. I didn’t really need that, so I asked if I could just get a strip view room. She said that of course it was complimentary. She then asked if I was afraid of heights and gave us a room with a fantastic view!
It was nerve wracking but totally worth it.
When I arrive about 6pm, there were many poeple to check in, so that I didn’t get any choice. I went to young women and gave my sandwich with $20. when she noticed there was something between my cc and id. I reserved three rooms by priceline name your own price, and each room price was $20 cheaper than regular price so that I didn’t expect one bedroom upgrade of all three rooms. I asked to her we want all three rooms are same floor and next each other and late check out. I got our rooms in 55th floor with strip view with 4pm check out. When I saw room price in expedia before use priceline, there were several grade. The cheapest one was city view with regular check out, next one was city view with 4pm check out, and the next one was strip view with regular check out and then last one was strip view with 4pm check out. I was really satisfied with sandwich trick. This was my first time trial, I saved several hundreds dollars. Thank you, frontdesktip.com
My friend checked in the night before and the had the sandwich work great, but when my wife and I checked in the next night no dice. The female clerk had her manager luring behind her and she kept offering an upgrade at the rack rate. I declined and just took our room
Checked in early around 11:00 am, line of people checking out and in meant no choice of agent. When we got to the front of the line a manager (based on wardrobe not confirmed) decided to open the last checkin desk to help. As soon as I was called over thought it was a lost cause but gave it a try anyways. She asked for my license and credit card and handed the sandwich over with a $20. As soon as she recieved she pulled the $20 out and was ready to return when silently stuck my hand out and said that I was wondering if there were any free upgrades. She immediately understood and said she will check. Made small talk about why we were visiting. and within a few minutes she said there was a one bedroom suite available if I’d like. Funny thing is that I may have looked away for no more than a second but I swear I have no idea when she pocketed the $20.
Went from base pre-paid priceline room booked for less than $100 on a weekend stay and was able to get upgraded… LOVE the $20 sandwich. This was my first time trying but definetly not the last
So me and my gf went to celebrate her sisters 21st birthday along with her bf, I had read about this website and was like I had to try the sandwich. We get to the Trump and there’s about 3 clerks waiting, they all looked like they would take the tip, but we wanted to white guy by the corner table, but got called by a Asian towards the front. So me and the birthday girls bf get to him and tell him that we’re checking in, so the clerk asks for my Credit Card & Drivers License, i hand him both cards with a $50 bill folded in the middle. Before he gets a chance to look at it, i ask him “Are you guys offering any complimentary room upgrades?” He looks down, see’s the 50 and goes “Oh Thank You let me see what i can do” While he typed away, i created small talk, 5 minutes later we went from 2 regular city view rooms to 2 Corner One Bedroom Strip View suites. I was just excited that the Sandwich worked! Just remember, tipping is the way to go in Vegas if you cant do that, you’ll be stuck with some crappy service. Can’t wait to go to Vegas again to try the Sandwich again!!
