    Seems to be a dead thread. Has anyone used this when booking a StayWell and checking in their little room? No idea if it's harder as there are less staff.

    Just tried the $20 trick this past weekend at MGM. The front desk person said I didn't have to pay her and gave me back the bill. The rooms were 99% capacity so they were not able to give me an upgrade on Saturday night, but she offered an upgrade on Sunday night. Since it was a hassle to go back the next day, we passed.

    Wow. Thanks! Going two Tuesdays from today. Very excited to see what happens with mine! Also, going to be interesting to see what happens since I have MyVegas comped rooms.

    Good luck ffejry. We had a free corporate offer one year and the 20 trick upgraded us to an executive suite.
     
    Bday trip!

    Let me know how it goes. I'm curious if they will give you upgrade for multiple days.

    Got upgraded to Grand king room from West wing. Not sure if much of an upgrade or not. I consider it a success due to it being a myvegas comp

    It's about a $30-40 per night upgrade for 100 more square feet plus more privacy in the bathroom. Still, an upgrade is an upgrade :thumbsup:

    Not bad. Congrats. I was also offered that upgrade on my 2nd night. I will be using my myVegas comp next time I go to Vegas, so this is encouraging.

    I actually got an offer for a suite for free, but only for the first night. More details in the pending trip report (if I ever recover). This was unrelated to the $20 trick. But I should have taken this offer to see what the suite was like!
