Add your favorite hotels on Facebook.

If you add a hotel like Treasure Island on Facebook, sometimes you can get up to 20 percent or more off of your entire stay. You may also be entered into giveaways that provide you with a free stay. Becoming a “fan” of a hotel on Facebook is the way to go if you like getting free upgrades too!

Get a list of casinos with free buffets.

Try to make a list of casinos that offer free buffets. You may also want to sign up for a comp card with a casino before your arrival to Vegas. This will help you save time and avoid the long lines at the casino. Casinos like the Mirage and Caesar’s Palace are known for giving out free buffet deals to visitors who sign up for a comp card.

Follow Vegas shows on Twitter.

Pick out a few Vegas shows that you want to see during your stay. Try to follow the actual shows on Twitter, and you may just land 10 percent or more off of your tickets. Some Vegas ticket dealers are also known for displaying promotions on their Twitter feeds in order to attract more visitors.

Buy tickets at the last minute.

You can also try buying tickets at the theater counter at the last minute. Some theaters will have an “auction” that allows you to purchase tickets for Vegas stand up shows at drastically reduced prices.

Before you head off to Vegas for the time of your life, keep these tips in mind. You will keep more money in your pocket and may even be able to play a few extra hands of blackjack!

    Great tips, back when I last went there was no such deals offered through facebook and twitter. And it was not that long ago 😉
    The best tip is the free buffets. From my view, I would avoid those all together. They are very expensive and have crappy similar food. Stick to one type of food restaurants. Even if they look pricey at first, they are actually much better deals with better food and service
