Saved:  $400 Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Prima Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

Was directed to a young female clerk. Sandwiched $50. Said it was our anniversary. Was upgraded to Palazzo with strip view on the 48th floor. Resort fees were waived.

Did the trick and asked for any complementary upgrades. He slid to see what the bill was and said he can look. We had a standard room at the Venetian, and he upgraded us to the Palazzo 40th floor strip view, $50 dollar beverage credit for signature cocktails at the Dorsey. He came back and broke the $50 in $2, $20’s and $10. I said it was for you as a tip and he said he couldn’t take it because he is unable to waive the resort fee. I gave him $20 bucks as a tip just for the upgraded room. So it does work, it just matters their mood on the resort fee I guess.

Checked in around 3PM and was quite busy. I was unable to select a clerk so got directed to one.
I put $50 between my Amex and passport, she saw the $50 and pushed it up towards the desk.
I ask if there are any piazza suite upgrades, she said none are available complimentary but at a reduced rate, which I declined.
She then put me on the 33rd floor with a strip and mountain view. I also asked if she could come the retire fee which she happily did.
So $50 saved me the $40 per day view upgrade and €309 in resort fees.

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.

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”.

Saved:  $300$ with fridge rental and resort fee waived + high floor upgrade Tipped:  $40 Upgraded to  Luxury Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

We were assigned to a younger female with dark hair at check in at about 6 PM. We handed her our ID and credit card with 40$ sandwiched in between and asked if there were any complimentary upgrades. Her customer service smile turned into an actual smile and she told us she’ll see what she can do. She asked what bed type we wanted and I told her it didn’t matter as long as the room was bigger. She told us straight up that there were no bigger rooms at this time (covid reducing hotels to only 50% capacity), but she waived the resort fee for our 3 night stay (triple what my tip was!), let us rent a fridge in our room for free (normally 40$ a night), and took off one of the mini bar items we ate. She also gave us a high floor and partial strip view which would have been another extra 30$ a night. I call that success, plus venetian is all suites anyways! 🙂

Gave the clerk in her late 20s or so, the sandwich at the Venetian desk and was asked if I needed change. Told her no but I’d like to see if there were any upgrades available. After much searching I was upgraded from a view of a parking lot on the 16 floor at the Venetian to strip view at the Palazzo on the 27th floor. Also checked in at 12:30 instead of 3 and was given late check out at 1pm. Clerk was amazing and very accommodating. Overall saved about $150-200 on the upgrade. Will definitely try this again the next time I am in Vegas.

Booked the standard Luxury Suite online and offered a $20 tip at check-in using the sandwich method.

Check-in staff discretely accepted the tip and immediately proceeded to search for an upgrade. He offered us a room on the top floor of the newer Venezia tower, overlooking the strip and added late checkout to our booking as well.

Very happy with the upgrade and the service we were provided.

Saved:  $$185 ($90 room upgrade + $135 resort fees - $40 tip) Tipped:  $40 Upgraded to  Luxury Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

We arrived during the middle of an 80,000 person convention so I knew that it would be unlikely to get a complete room upgrade, but after reading reviews on this site, I thought I’d try it anyway. I decided to give $40 as we were staying 3 nights (If I was only staying 1 or 2 nights I would have given $20).

There was a long line at check-in but we finally got directed to a young lady in her 20s (didn’t get the chance to target anyone). I put the $40 in between our passports and credit card when she asked for them over. She immediately asked if I would be interested in a complimentary upgrade. When I said I would be, she put us on the 32nd floor with an incredible view of the strip. She also said that she would wave the resort fee of $45 for our stay.

She asked if there was anything else she could do for us. At this point I was pretty certain that I could also get a late check out, but we didn’t need it as we were driving back to LA early on our last day. All in all it was a success and if it had been less busy we might have even got a full room upgrade.

We arrived around 8pm on Saturday and slipped 50 between my credit card and ID and asked if there were any complementary upgrades. She said she would see what she could do and went to the back to talk to her supervisor. When she came back she said she could upgrade us to a high strip view floor which usually runs $50 more.
