    Im headed to vegas in may and was seeking some input on ACG book. Never bought one for previous trips and have decided to pick one up this time. I just ordered thru amazon and figured for $15 i cant go wrong.

    My gf wants to go to the Titanic Exhibit and I want to do the NYNY Rollercoaster on this trip. The ACG has good coupons for both. Paid for itself already.

    If you are looking for bargains in meals, some small free and match play, and some 2 for 1 show tickets, you'll love it. It pays for itself the first time you use a coupon. You will have to join their slot clubs, most of the time.

    If you go to Fremont street and/or some of the off strip places like Hard Rock, Orleans, or Palms - it will pay for itself a few times over just in free slot plays or Match plays.

    The book is not nearly what it was a few years back, but it still has enough match plays that can be used every 30 days that make it something I purchase for every Vegas trip (made 4 trips last year).

    Don't miss the two free tickets at the Riviera Comedy Club. Unlike SinCity there is no hidden "buy a drink" clause to this deal, just free tickets. If you do want a drink, I found the red wine on a special was decent, again unlike SinCity where I could not finish the stuff they made us buy.

    After that I like the free buffets tied to gambling a certain amount of points at Sam's Town and at the Gold Coast and Ellis Island, and 25% off at the Spice Market buffet. You can find full pay video poker at each of these places, so if you play just until you reach the coupon level, it adds to the EV.

    I did like the 2 for 1 at the El Cortez, but the new resort fee watered down that coupon advantage.

    Many of us take out the coupons and arrange them geographically. It is much easier to carry them along then.
