    Tried it last year in July. Had the $20 in between my license and credit card. She handed all three back and upgraded us to the Rush tower which was great! Going back on July 5th, hopefully it will work for us again!

    I tried it in July and was upgraded to the renovated tower. My friend weren't aware of the trick and got the old tower. My room was bigger and much nicer than my friends. Although my view sucked balls, it was the view of a wall :mad: But hey I got a bigger room, it was quiet and renovated so Im not gonna complain. Now, for my next trip hope the tip works whereever I end up staying.

    Was at the Nugget Feb. 6-9. Booked a standard run of the house room on Priceline. Arrived at 8am. Slipped the lady the sandwich and got upgraded from Carson Tower to the Rush tower. My buddy checked into his room right next to me...no sandwich. Not only was he not upgraded, he wasnt able to check into his room until after 3pm.

    $20 is worth it even for just the early check-in.

    This has inspired me to try it on my upcoming stay, actually... it would help me a bunch to get in my room around 9:00 am (on a Thursday morning), and my original plan was to just beg and plead... but I never thought about slipping $20 to make it happen.

    I’m staying at the Nugget in March in a Carson Tower run of house room, what would be a realistic upgrade to pitch for?

    I tried the $20 sandwich Friday night.. It didnt work.. She gave me back my $20 and said they were at full capacity.. As a matter of fact OMG, the room i got was horrible.. They put me on Floor 3 in the Carson Tower facing West... Gave me 2 double beds even though I booked a King (they were all out).. Room was very nice but wholly crap, being next to the parking garage with cars going in and out all night long, car alarms going off, cars honking drove me nuts.. I hate having ear plugs in.. I stayed one night out of my 3 night stay and checked out, went to the Flamingo for the remainder of my 3 day weekend in Vegas..
    Also it snowed and the FWY back to SoCal was closed Monday morning but re-opened around noon.. Took me 6.5 hours to get home VS the normal 3.5 hours.. The good news is that I didnt lose too much money gambling though :)
    Sooooooo if you are going to stay at the Nugget absolutely make sure you do not get a Carson Tower room facing west.
