El Cortez Match Play

Sometimes the best kept secrets are right there in front of you, and you just have to be in the know enough to ask. That’s definitely the case at one of my favorite downtown grind joints, as even *I* was surprised to discover my last trip.

Although many may underestimate the yellow-tinted and heavily-perfumed dive, it turns out they offer one of the best free deals in Las Vegas!

The El Cortez has an excellent deal (that amounts to about $40 worth of match play, free play, and drinks) if you show the player’s club a boarding pass from any airline within 24 hours of landing.

Free Drinks

One of my favorite parts of Las Vegas is all of the comped drinks. Which is short for complimentary drinks. Which is casino jargon for free drinks.

Vegas.com is an excellent resource for researching and/or booking competitively priced hotels, attractions, and show tickets before you even land in Las Vegas. I often use Vegas.com as a starting point for planning Vegas possibilities and getting a rough idea of what hotel prices look like. While you can usually save a couple extra bucks following some of the more advanced tips that I preach, Vegas.com is my recommended catch-all starting point, particularly if you’re new to Vegas or want a decent deal without all the hassle.

Vegas.com has also offered an amazing Black Friday sale in 2018 and 2019, where they gave you a $50 promo with any purchase. Here’s to hoping they continue this promotion into the next decade!
