After traveling to Vegas at least a dozen times this Budget Savvy Diva thought it would be super awesome to let her amazing readers in on some amazing tips and tricks to saving money in Las Vegas.

My Hubs and I in Vegas

First Tip: Lodging
Make sure to sign up for different resort newsletters you will be clued into amazing deals. After much experience there is a HUGE difference between staying at a decent hotel at a good rate or going to a cheap motel ( not recommended).
BSD usually stays at excalibur : rates range I am looking for between 20 – 50 to stay at this location, note that there is a daily fee around 9.00 tagged on. Every time I have stayed there I have been upgraded. Hint: Make sure to check in later around 7 pm you have a higher chance of being upgraded.
Other hotel recommendations:
– MGM : Great Hotel and you can usually snag it for 50 – 70 each day. It is always a treat to stay here. Again you have an added daily fee which includes a 15.00 beverage credit. So thumps up for a free drink!.
– Not Recommended: – Imperial Palace, Hooters

– BIG TIP: Going to nicer hotels and gambling  means 2 things: more frequency of free drinks alcoholic or not & the drinks will be stronger. I love going to Mandalay Bay for this reason. PLUS many resturants allow you to bring in free drinks ( so super score)

– Tip: Many Adult Beverage places have reuseable cups that you can purchase and refill for a more inexpensive price.

– Utalize Happy Hour:
Budget Savvy Diva LOVE happy hour!!! My favorites are Diego at MGM with 1.25 taquitos with amazing free chips and salsa. Two adults can have a wonderful dinner for less then 7.00! Another is China Grill at Mandalay Bay. They have the MOST amazing sushi. Below is the BEST hands down sushi I have ever had and cannot wait to try more of their sushi. This amazing philiadelphia roll with smoked salmon and pesto ( I know pesto is a little weird) but trust me it is AMAZING and for only 5.50 ! PLUS just by going you will receive a complimentary yummy pot sticker.

Tip: Using Using this site really saves you money. There are plenty of Las Vegas restaurants you can buy for a discount. Below is from THE Cafe at Mandalay Bay – Yummy Burger with 1 year old aged cheddar cheese with a Amazing Bun and of course a kosher pickle and truffle fries which all tasted simply amazing PLUS a fresh Caesar Salad
