Save us in Las Vegas, tips and tricks

Updated: Jan 13

I have taken several trips to Vegas and every time I come back broke, Gambling is fun, but you need find ways to save money and save your feet from all the walking. Today I will be showing you some of the ways I save money in Las Vegas, which you will need if you gamble like me.

Las Vegas Tips and Tricks

First thing first, wherever you gamble sign up for a card, just by gambling you earn points with that casino, and it will help you earn deals. Also, they all usually have a new sign-up offer that gets you more money to gamble on or a chance to win a great prize or perks. My card at The Strat gave me a free 100 bucks to gamble on when I first signed up, and 2 weeks after I returned home, they were offering free night stays if used over the next few months.

Stay at cheaper resort or hotel, this is beneficial because you do so much walking anyway, wandering in and out of the casinos. Use deals, promos and discounts to get a casino resort to become affordable. (My Vegas Slots) If walking is an issue, which at times it is for me, you can rent scooters to go up and down the strip. There are several places to choose from and prices start at 70 bucks for a whole day.

Save those feet some more and use the monorail. It takes you from MGM Grand to the Sahara, with plenty of stops in between. You can buy daily passes, or up to a 7 days pass. Keep reading this article and I will tell you how to get them cheaper, buy 1 get 1 half off (My Vegas Slots). Now the tram is located at the back of all those casino stops, so you will have to do some walking to get back through the casino to the strip. But if you have specific places you want to visit it is great. Save those feet, do a few casinos each day, don't try to do all casinos is a couple days,

There are also free trams to a few casinos which is helpful also. Visit Excalibur, Luxor and Mandalay Bay by a tram, and Treasure Island to The Mirage has a tram. (Go check The Mirage before it is gone, Hard Rock bought it out). The last tram is Park MGM to Aria to Bellagio.

If you have rented a car, or plan to rent a car. I use deals to do it also. My go to when I am not finding anything cheap enough if Fox Car Rentals. They are the cheapest, and as long as long as you don't have to have a car in perfect condition it is great. If you have flown into the airport, take the shuttle to the rental car pickup area, don't go inside, out front is another shuttle pick up that will take you to Fox car rental that is up the road a little bit more.

Rental cars have their benefits, when using casinos because there are several casinos with free parking. The Sahara, Circus Circus, Treasure Island, and The Tropicana, are on strip casinos that will let you f=park for free. Behind the Tropicana is the Oyo Hotel which offers cheap table games, but they also have free parking and gets you the closest to the MGM Grand and monorail that's behind MGM Grand. MGM properties offer 3-hour free parking for locals, but that's it. Other places to park for free are the Shops at Crystals, Fashion Show Mall and the Shops at Mandalay Palace.

Las Vegas Cheap Eats


Cheap eats, almost every casino has a food court area, or at least 1 fast food place that is cheap. But it also good to escape the strip to find cheap eats. Now don't get me wrong I suggest a splurge or 2 on food here. There are several I highly recommend, but this is my list of cheap eats.

*Eggslut-breakfast- Cosmopolitan (be early, as with any cheap breakfast spot in Vegas)

*Excalibur brunch buffet- (My Vegas Slots will get you a deal). Where else can you get a seafood soup with crab legs in it and a breakfast buffet.

*Excalibur also has an excellent food court with cheap eats.

*CrunCheese Korean Hot Dog- a different take on a hot dog, located in Chinatown, Shanghai Plaza on Spring Mountain Road. There are several other cheap eats restaurants located in this plaza there including one my favorite bakery. 85C Bakery Cafe

*Seigals Bagelmania- Sandwiches, deli, pastries. There is even a Pinkbox Donuts located inside- Convention Center Dr.

*Brioche by Guy Savoy- breakfast is cheap- located in Caeser's Palace

*In-n-Out Burger several locations in the Vegas area.

*Viva Las Arepas- just north of The Strat

*Miricle Mile shops- several cheap eats- located in behind Planet Hollywood. This is a beautiful area to walk around. Lots of shops and attached to Hilton Elera also.

Now as I mentioned before MY Vegas Slots, I downloaded this ap and play for about 20 minutes a day and earn points to use in Vegas and other places around the world. This is a free ap, you do not have to put money into it to earn points, and you earn quick. Discounts on monorail, and hotels stays as mentioned before. Also discounts on shows, attractions and gambling perks if you are staying at that resort. Check it out.


This is just the beginning for Vegas posts, so check back and look for more blogs soon. Vegas is an amazing experience and I recommend everyone at least come out here once. Between the people watching, gambling, shows, great food and the sight itself. It is truly a wonder to behold. I hope this blog gave you some insight on where to save some money, and how to maneuver around on the Strip cost effectively and without your feet hurting from all the walking.
