    Have my travel booked from the 19th to the 24th of August and staying at Aria.

    I'm not even sure where to start. I picked up an ACG and Im going to see where the coupons are to plan out if I will use them.

    My budget is roughly 3k once I am in vegas for gambling. I plan to split that money up evenly between each day.

    What I'm planning on doing right now is when we land early on the 19th is going get the $100 cosmo deal and the $200 tropicana deal. Are there any other big ones I should know about?

    Since I have never been to vegas - I should be able to sign up for free play at most casinos right? Are there any of these I should do online first?

    On one day of the trip I will have one big gambling splurge - on that day I plan to go to Red Rock, Orleans, or one of the Boulder Strip casinos. Any recommendations?

    Hi grakk, welcome aboard!
    For your first trip it sounds like you are very prepared. I would sign up for players cards when I am in Vegas. It's a very simple process that only takes a couple minutes and you will receive your card immediately. Nothing wrong with signing up online, but since you are going to be there soon you can make sure you have your cards to use. Not all casinos offer free play when you sign up, but I know a few do.
    Good luck on your first Vegas adventure. Bet it won't be your last. :thumbsup:

    Dont sign up online, you might not get any freebies like you would get once there.

    It only takes a few minutes in the casino.

    You can ttravel off strip if you must but there is really no need to do so. the strip has plenty to offer.
