We asked our writers and contributors for their opinions on the best Vegas bargains they found in 2015. No options were given to ensure the response we received were written freely. Here’s what they had to say…
We realise that “Best” is subjective. We see it all the time on various forums where people ask what is the best hotel, or best show or best place to gamble and the result is always different. With that in mind, here’s our Best Vegas Bargains.
The Best Vegas Bargains
Rental cars. With a little diligence and preplanning, rental cars can be had for about $30 a day, which is the cost of a cab ride or two. Then you have the freedom to get off the beaten path and find more bargains in dining and gambling conditions.

Divas the show! Totally best bang for your buck!

Tix4Tonight – If you suddenly have no plans for the evening and want to catch a show, Tix4Tonight has decent last minute price deals. It’s a good way to catch some entertainment at a fairer price than you would pay at the box office on the same night. Although they advertise half-price tickets, it’s really more like one-third off after their markup. Still a good last minute deal, though. Oh yeah, and I can’t forget 1 dollar Michelob’s at Casino Royale!

Half price buffet at Silver 7’s for all, Half price food at SLS and the Hard Rock. On the strip: happy hour, there’s tons of happy hour deals.
Mondays Dark at Vinyl (Hard Rock Hotel) A $20-per-ticket monthly variety show that raises $10,000 for a different local charity. Now entering its third year, Mondays Dark promises to make the world a better place for “Twenty bucks, 90 minutes at a time”. The potluck collection of performances is always fun, spontaneous, and packed to the brim with Vegas headliners, familiar faces, and new talent.
People Watching – I always feel that one of the best bargains on a trip to Vegas is the actual people watching. This can vary tremendously each time, depending on what type of crowd is in Vegas at the time, and it can cost as little as you want it to. The other great part is that you can participate in this activity almost anywhere, and it will often provide varied entertainment that you would not get anywhere else.
