and here's what happened...

That's pretty cool. Do you usually try to get an upgrade with a $20 tip? What do you do if things go bad and they say they can't get you in an upgraded room....do you ask for your $20 back? :)

$20 trick works generally in Vegas at most properties, depending on actual availability. If they can't help you, they generally give the tip back.

Should be called a "$20 bribe."

That's a great video, mel! I've been doing the sandwich for 20+ years, and it's always either paid off, or they return it. Glad you had such a good experience. Kind of ironic that "free room upgrade" came up as a next video choice at the end.

My.personal best was Borgata; I was comped in for 3 nights, and the sandwich moved me from a standard room to a 2 br corner suite. Didn't think to price it, though; just enjoyed the hell out of it.

I've had that exact room at the Cosmo twice; once as a terrace 1br, once as a Japanese sex room (different colors, mostly yellow, and condoms.in the minibar). Gotta love the 6 person shower with the glass wall fronting on the bed.
