5.2 Promotions, specials and coupon books

Want to save money?

There are all sorts of coupons, advertised discounts, "price off" and 2-for-1 coupons and coupon books available everywhere. Some are posted on the web, others must be picked up at various venues or are in the slick cover magazines usually found in your hotel room. Many hotel concierges, promotion booths, bell captain's and information desks also offer discount coupon books and Las Vegas magazines. (We even got one from our shuttle driver on the way to the hotel.) Ask for them! Don’t pay full price if you don’t have to.

There are MANY shows that you can see for half price (or a discount price) with a coupon! Here are some currently running "specials." Print them out and take the entire page to the hotel’s promotions desk or box office. (Some coupons and coupon books must be picked up at the hotel.)

Never pay for a booklet of "price off" coupons.  Las Vegas is the coupon capital of the world.  They will be free everywhere you look.

Half Price Tickets on many shows that have not sold out. These shows are usually not the high price, high demand production shows. Tel: 877-849-4868)  Shows include headliners, variety, magic, comedy, and showgirls.

Coupon books

Never pay money for a coupon book that is sold. Practically all are a profit-making venture for the seller. There are plenty of free coupon or "fun books" available all over Las Vegas. Some require being a registered hotel guest or joining a slot club at no cost.

Hint: Make it a practice to ask for a free coupon book at a hotel’s promotions or Player's Club" booth.

Unless you know the box office price of the "hard to get" show tickets or that a free coupon offer does not exist, we also do not recommend that you purchase Las Vegas show tickets on Ebay. Most of the coupons listed there can be found on the Web and printed out at no cost. And many of the individual "hot" hard-to-get show tickets listed are from ticket vendors who price the tickets at a huge markup over actual cost. But Ebay is worth a look since once in a while we have seen offers of below box office cost on some very desirable shows. These are usually "comped" tickets that the person does not use.

Another Hint: Check out the coupons in the Las Vegas telephone book Yellow pages. There are many there!

"What's On in Las Vegas" is a valuable (free) twice a month magazine that lists Las Vegas shows, sightseeing tours, restaurants, shopping malls, and other recreation and entertainment activities. (Tel. (702-891-8811.) It is usually distributed at no cost in your hotel room. Inside you will finds all sorts of specials and coupon savings. If there is not one in your hotel room, ask your hotel's concierge ...or at the bell captain's or front desk for a copy.
