Saved:  $240 Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Piazza Suite  from  Piazza Suite 

I was half awake when checking in and forgot to ask for anything or offer the sandwich. When I checked out I asked if they could waive resort fees and he said they were locked to the reservation. I showed my room keys with a 20 between them and he said “let me see what I can do.” He waived $240 in resort fees and the damage from the waters and m&ms. I also asked for a 1pm checkout but didn’t leave til 3.

Tipped:  $50 Upgraded to  Penthouse Suite  from  Bella Suite 

I was the best man for my friends bachelor party and we had decided on a trip to vegas. We booked at the Venetian because we wanted a little classier place. Originally there were 9 of us going and we had booked 3 bella suites. So we get to the Venetian at 11a.m. and 4 of us stand in line (with our drinks mind you.) We got up to the counter and had a younger guy helping us check in. I gave him the $50 sandwich and asked if there was any upgrades we could get possibly to have us all in the same room. He looked at the computer for a bit then looked up at me and said don’t worry i’ll hook you guys up. So that sounded good. He left the counter for a bit, came back and typed a bit more then said, ok. If we cancel your three rooms and you guys pay a total of $200 more I can get all 9 into the penthouse suite. Without checking I said sounds great. It was awesome, usually its $5000 a night for the penthouse we got it for way way less then what it goes for and very close to what we had originally booked. Made the trip, and I have now been the go to when people need advice on getting upgraded. I have to say though I learned how to do it from www.frontdesktip.com. Thanks Guys

Saved:  $150 per night on a 4 night stay Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Bella Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

Went to the Ventian front desk. Went to the first available person. Slid $50 in between my license and credit card. Didnt say anything about the cash. The check in person asked if I wanted any change, I said it’s all here. She started typing away, asked if we had a special occasion I said it was out 5 yr anniversary. She ended up moving us to a suite in The Palazzo which was an upgrade from the basic room.

WE didnt target a specific clerk we didnt arrive til just after midnight so it was fairly quiet.

We had a female clerk who seemed friendly and chatted.

We followed our usual rules and asked her what kind of room we had, she said a luxury suite (standard) this is when my husband flashed the $50 and asked her if they had any upgrades.

She said she would check and went into the back. It did take her a while to find us a room and she really was trying to get us something better she even went to ask her manager.

She eventually came back to say they had found us a piazza suite which was 1400sqft compared to the luxury which was only 650. She showed us on the tablet the pictures and i knew this was a nice room. We got a strip view looking towards the wynn and down at the pools. I asked if she could do anything about the resort fees and she said she couldnt.

I was happy with what we got it would of cost us a hell of a lot more to pay for that suite upfront.

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.

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.

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:  $$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.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Bella Suite   from  Luxury Suite  

While i was in the elevator heading down to the lobby floor I placed a $20 bill in between my id and credit card so i wouldnt be seen arranging it while waiting in line. I was next in line waiting, then 4 new cashiers opened up in a row. I chose the one at the end because I figured it was a fifty percent less chance that the other cashiers would see what was going on. I got up to the counter and was extremely nervous. He asked for my id and credit card and i handed him the sandwich. I froze though and didnt ask for any upgrades or was too scared to say anything. The next 10 seconds I mentally blacked out. 30 seconds later he said “you are available for a free upgrade” or something to that nature. We have a room available with a great view of the strip, with a living room area with a sofa couch w/ a pullout bed. Then I asked for 2 beds for me and my friend. He said no problem and is there anything else you guys need. I really wanted to push my limits for the piazzo suite but I was way too nervous and I just couldnt get the words out of my mouth. But i got to the room and figured out that it was the bella suite. I originally ordered the cheapest room (luxury suite). Now that i know what to expect i will be going for the piazzo suite in december. Thank you.

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Bella Suite  from  Luxury Suite 

I didn’t target anyone I stood in line, there was a fellow there. I told him it was my first time in vegas and that I was scoping out spots for a bigger trip my friends and I would be taking in 2019. I asked him if there were any upgrades, he said he would look and see what he could do. I had a King room ordered, but a friend of mine was coming on Friday and later changed to two queen beds. It was about 9:45/10PM.

I’m looking at pool construction and trump tower. This is the worst. I gave him twenty bucks, he gave me two waters, and a room with a view of construction and Trump Tower.
