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.
Went to a young man who I thought would take the bait. After reading MANY of the reviews on this site I decided to step it up to $50 AND keep the money on the counter (in case he couldn’t do anything).
Stepped up, checked in, and asked if any Suites were available. He went in the back room to check (I was thinking “SCORE!”) and came out saying “Yes we do have suites available…”
I was like “Great” and then he proceed to say it was an extra $100/night.
“Is there anything you can do about that?” I asked (nudging and looking at my $50 on the counter). I know he saw the thing but he said he couldn’t. He couldn’t even hook me up w/ a Tower King.
He ended up writing the wrong room # on my card and I came back down to another person and didn’t feel like trying it again.
MORAL OF THE STORY: If you want something more than just a nice view, keep the money on the counter because once the money is out of your hands, you give up control. Plus, you don’t want to give it to a “newbie” or someone who just started working there… all for nothing.
Did get a view of the strip on a mid-floor. Regular Wynn rooms are really nice so I wasn’t too disappointed in not getting a suite =].
We checked in around noon. Since the clerks were all so close together, i decided to try a girl at the far left end of the check in desk with no one on one side of her. I figured I may have better luck if there were not as many people around and I liked her expressions
Unfortunately, the folks in front of me were taking a while so the girl next to her called me over. Since our stay was for three nights I sandwiched a $100 between my card/D.L. I did not say anything when i handed her the sandwich, and before I had the chance to say something she immediately placed the bill to the side of the keyboard and said that “we do not do that”. She proceeded to check me in and “offered” me the same deal that previous posters have been offered…the “panoramic view” on the 58th floor for $25 a night. I knew that the “Panoramic View” is no different than the resort rooms on lower levels, but took it since one of the rooms was available immediately. Since our friends were with us, they also paid for the”upgrade” and the clerk was so nice=(, and put them across the hall from us upon our request.
I was very disappointed that the clerk i got was not willing to offer up ANYTHING for 100 bucks. Guess we’ll go to the Venetian next time!
did the $20 trick , smiled at the young lady who took the $20and put it on the keyboard, while she looked on the system. I ended up on the 36 floor.
So was that an upgrade, looking on here it looks like it was.
We were waiting in a short line on Christmas Eve and there are clerks working on 2 sides of a big check in area. A nice gentleman came to the line and directed people in front of us and said he would take me as his customer. He was very personable and when he asked for my ID I handed him a $50 bill and asked if there were any complimentary suite upgrades from my King Resort room which I booked for 3 nights complimentary from Wynn slots app on my phone. The clerk stated he was sorry the Wynn was basically sold out for Christmas week no free upgrades. He said he needed to talk to his boss about maybe getting us an Executive tower Suite with his/her bathrooms and 933 sq. Ft. Room for $176 a night. We would get $50 breakfast credit everyday, and get VIP line cuts to all restaurant and buffet. Yes they had a room at $176 a night and we took it. Regular low published Wynn rate on this room is $720 per night. After $50 credit room cost us $126 per night and we used $50 everyday. Christmas day Buffet wait line was 3 1/2 hours wait, we had special entrance was only 10 minute wait. Well worth the money and epic upgrade. Thank you Wynn.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Busy week with two major events. Simple sandwich and said “any nice upgrades tonight?” $20 for 6 nights got me from cheapo conference hovel room to corner room strip view.
