    Hey guys. Might have already been spoken about in the past but could not find. Just wondering. Im heading back to Vegas tomorrow night and have arranged for a limo pick up from the Bellagio. Just wondering how much do people normally tip the driver on a comped ride? I was going to tip $20-$30. does $20 seem like enough?

    I tipped $20 each way and they seemed good with it.. I think $15 to whatever is ok.

    No less than 20 if you're solo. If you have a few people and a bunch of bags go with 30-40.

    Shifter always has good advice. Only 3 of us. Probably a check in piece each. But ya. Ill probably tip him $30. What I was expecting to do before. Any words of wisdom Shifter on how I can make this trip a winning trip? Any tips on a loaded slot machine that is going to pay me out? Lol. Have run intolosing trips the last 7 times out or so. Need the luck to change in 2013. :p

    Did you really search? I just searched for "comp limo tip" and found five threads which all discussed proper tipping ettiquette for comped limos in the first page of the thread.

    Yep, Slots are for suckers! Learn basic strategy on blackjack and you should be most of the way there (in the long run).

    As for the limo, I usually do $30 for my wife and I and a bag.

    At the top, just underneath the banner ad. Mouseover and it drops down. I chose Advanced Search to limit the searching to just the Comps page. Sorry if I came across as harsh, it is such a common question that I knew it had been discussed plenty of times. Scrolling back through recent threads probably wouldn't find it...but the search function is quick and reliable.

    There are about a dozen questions that get asked every few weeks, and the answers are usually all about the same each time. This one is less frequent, but it does come up at least once a month, or so it seems.

    Of course, if somebody does the even worse thing and uses a subject line that is worthless, then it is hard for others to find it. Some of my favorite subject lines are:

    Question?
    Vegas.
    Comps
    Can you help me
    Help a newbie
    What would you do
    Gambling
    Just thinking
