Had free room from Wynn gaming app. There was a queue waiting to check in, so randomly got a guy at 10pm on a wed night. I slipped $20 sandwich and asked if he had any better rooms available without resort fees. He claimed he did and moved us from unknown to 33rd floor overlooking the shopping mall across the street. We were satisfied with the room choice and felt that if we had not done this trick we would have ended up on the boring side and had resort fees. He also said the resort fees were waived.
The next day, the TV screen indicated $19 fee for each of 3 IP’s we used for our devices, and a $11.53 outbound phone call just for giggles. Went down to check in desk and nice woman waived it too, but warned us to disconnect our WiFi items. We felt this was confusing because the initial connection splash screen mentions a basic Wifi plan thats included in the resort fee (or though we felt it is misleading). She waived all of it including the long distance call. We stayed 2 days in room with no charges.
The base room rate was earned by playing the Wynn gaming app over the past few months.
I didn’t intentionally target any clerk, but jumped in a random line since o didn’t know about this part of the trick. It was 7am in the morning, which made the lines relatively short compared to other parts of the day. I was greeted by a very happy clerk, perhaps he had received great news. He was super excited, and when I slid him the 20 dollar tip he said he could upgrade me to the 3 bedroom duplex. I knew this was 4000 dollars on a regular day, so I was freaking out in my mind! I’m sure something amazing happened with this clerk to provide me with one of the best rooms in the Wynn. If he sees this, thank you so much!
I made sure I was friendly and I put the $20 with my card and ID. I asked if there were any possible complementary upgrades. He said he would check on it. Also asked about the resort fee and he said he would comp it and the valet parking. We were moved to the 58th floor two bed deluxe panoramic view of the strip. Really nice room. I started with booking the room through the casino app. So it was free to start with and got a $300 room upgrade.
I slipped the 20 in between my I’d and credit card. The attendant winked as soon as he saw the money and said he would do everything he could to help. Same room type but the attendant changed us from non strip view 31 floor to strip view 60th floor. He also apologized he couldn’t do better since it was a Saturday and they were at 90% capacity.
Walked up to the clerk and I made sure to be super friendly with eye contact, jokes and everything. When she asked for my ID and credit card, I had it already set up in my pocket with a $20 slipped in between. As I handed it to her, I asked if they had any complimentary upgrades.
She told me to hold on to the money for now and to put it on her side of the desk afterwards.
She said that my two rooms were lower floor rooms with no view but now I was on the 52 and 54 floor with a strip view! Worth the $20.
I checked in at 2pm on a Monday. I slipped the twenty between my ID and credit card and handed it to the male clerk. He quickly realized the twenty and slyly but the bill in front of his computer and said, “let’s see what I can do for you”. He asked if I would like a strip or golf view as he was upgrading me to the Panoramic King room. I went with the golf view and am very happy with my room, would definitely recommend trying the twenty dollar trick at the Wynn.
We booked our stay through vegashotelescapes.com with a no-resort fee special. When we arrived to the hotel they said compliments of the provider that we were upgraded from our tower king suite to a parlor suite. Enough said!
she just slid the money right back to me.
We arrived extremely early, around 9:30 am, and didn’t expect to check in. Knowing we could keep our luggage at the hotel and tour around until the afternoon seemed like the best option. When we arrived at the Wynn, there was no one at the reception desk, checking in or out, but a number of staff members, so we thought we would at least let them know we were there in case our room was ready. We were lucky to be helped by a very nice man in his late 20’s. He was quite professional but after joking around a bit, he quickly loosened up. When he asked for ID I had the $20 waiting between my passport and VISA. I asked for a complimentary upgrade to a nicer room, which he said he could not do complimentary, but he may try to get us on a higher floor. We continued to joke with him as he searched for a room, and he said that the best he could do, for an immediate check in, was a smoking room, which we did not want. We told him that it was absolutely no problem to leave our luggage and come back at 4:00 when another room was ready. He returned our passport and Visa, and kept the $20. At this point I thought, fine, lesson learned. The $20 had gotten me no where.
We received a call stating our room was ready around 1:00, but were nowhere near the hotel, so we thought we would return later.
At 4:00 we returned to find that the morning shift was gone, and there were a number of young ladies behind the counter. When we mentioned that we were told that our room was indeed ready and that we had already talked to a gentleman that morning, she searched for our room. She told us that we had our corner room overlooking the golfcourse ready, and gave us our key.
The $20.00 got us upgraded from a resort room to a corner room.
Check-in on a Monday and targeted a 30’s female. Told the clerk we were on our 3rd anniversary and first time away from the 8 month old. Handed her a $20 sandwich and asked for an comp upgrades. She looked and gave us a corner room 16th floor facing the golf course + Encore. She returned the $20.
I ended up giving it back to her in a Wynn envelope when I left. SHE EARNED IT!!
The room and the entire Wynn hotel is #1 and worth every penny paid.
