    It's about 12-13 on Amazon and if you have Prime no shipping. Not sure if ACG charges shipping.

    The ACG website charges pretty steep shipping fees. You can save a couple of dollars getting it at eBay.

    I pre-ordered last year and it was under $10 on Amazon... cheapest I've seen it. Hoping they run that again this year.

    Edit: Just checked $8.05+tax is what I paid

    I'm in Vegas enjoying the 2 books I picked up on Amazon. I also have 4 advisors
    If anybody needs a coupon or wants to trade while I'm here in Vegas let me know.

    I saw this yesterday and ordered ACG to be delivered 24 hours later to a Prime Pickup location. I'll tell you how that goes.

    I Amazon Primed a pickup at a locker (notice the verb usage) an American Casino Guide today! It is already amazing, I caught myself reading it it in the car before I even got out of the parking lot. I also got a free water bottle from Amazon since it was my first time and some excellent customer service.

    This guide is a must..I'm excited to use it in Vegas.

    I always like the 2 for 1 Buffet coupons for The Silverton and The Silver Sevens buffets, plus carry two ACG's so we can try others if in the area. We Have tried The Buffets at The Rampart, Arizona Charlie's (Both) Sam's Town, Golden Nugget, Excalibur, Orleans, Gold Coast, Caesars Palace, Harrahs, GVR, Red Rocks, Palace Station, Boulder Station, Main Street Station, California, Aliente, Rio, Bellagio and a few others I'm sure. Back ten years ago, BOGO's were easy to come by, not so much any more.
    The Hooter's Buy Ten wings get Ten Wings is good to have as is any of the Ellis Island. We really avoid the Strip as we Have Been and much prefer off strip locations.

    So how do the coupons work for free play? Do you have to take them to the casino host to use? I'm assuming you can't cash out the free play amount, but can you cash out anything above that amount?
