Lots of planning going into our cheap Vegas Vacation. I have a list of 15 different casinos that give away free money. These casinos give you between $3 and $10 in free slot machine money when you sign up for their "players club".
You are not allowed to simply go to a machine and cash out...you have to gamble the free money. But you ARE allowed to cash out your winnings. I figure we will end up with at least $200 in cash from these 15 casinos, and quite possibly a lot more. Free, without using any of our own money. And, we get the entertainment of the slot machines as well. This should take up a fair bit of time during the week, and should be enough to pay for all of our meals.
And, we'll do at least one timeshare tour. Probably end up with a couple of show tickets, or gift cards and free buffet meals. Maybe even some cash.
We plan on using the word "free" as much as possible for our cheap week in Vegas. I like that word.
And there are so many free attractions. Our only expenses for our week away will be airfare ($550), car rental ($128), gas, and food. We are staying with two different couchsurfing hosts for three nights each, and we are spending one night in a hotel suite at the Golden Nugget with RV'ing friends we met three years ago. They got the suite for free, so it won't cost us anything either.
Of course we also plan on visiting some of the surrounding parks and doing some hiking. That will probably cost a few bucks in entrance fees, but it should be relatively minor.
Wanna see how much fun and cheap a week in Vegas can be...? Stay tuned...
