Saving Money In A Gouging Vegas

piggy-bank-1239661-1280x1280Anyone who has been to Las Vegas in recent times knows it has become expensive. The prices border on voluntary robbery. Gouging is prevalent and there is no relief in sight.

In light of the creeping prices over the years, it’s time to find ways to cut costs and save money. We will share some ways to save and economize.

This week I paid $6.50 for a Grande Latte and $5.00 for a small water. Basically, everything I purchased was 20-100% more than in most places around the country. These prices cut into my fun budget.

In the next couple of weeks MGM will begin¬†charging for parking at all of its properties. These include Aria, Bellagio, Delano, Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, MGM, Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York, New York, and Delano. And, there are the resort fees that pile up on top of your room rate. So, what’s to do?

First, if you are flying in, buy a package from Expedia, Hotwire, Travelocity, or some other reputable source. If you bundle airfare, hotel, and car, you will save a good amount. Also, if you are flexible choose your time to visit wisely. If there is a major event or large convention(s) taking place know the hotel rates will be very high. In some cases, you won’t find anything affordable. One trip I had to drive to Jean, Nevada to find something reasonable. So, check the events and convention schedule right here.¬†Also, check the coupons right here on our website.

One final suggestion, but the 2016 Entertainment book for Las Vegas. You can find it here. These coupons will save you a great deal on your food and entertainment. The price has been dropped to $16 so get it now.
