Do you like hopping between casinos for very measly sums of potential money in a gambit that's seemingly worth it less and less every year?
I've compiled a spreadsheet and a map of all of 2019's American Casino Guide and Las Vegas Advisor's coupons.

So casino hopping for low dollars is a waste of time but constructing spread sheets you will not use isn't?
Happy spread sheeting.

I wouldn't say a waste of time. I really enjoy doing it myself annually, but it has very little reward for time spent.

The American Casino Guide and app has been one hell of a great resource over the years.

Your 2nd link isn't publicly accessible.

Thanks for putting these together. I feel like the ACG/LVA values have remained steady over the past several years. Obviously they suck in comparison to what they once were.

thanks for the list. Are there any major changes this year, or basically the same?

ACG feel a bit lighter, LVA has a lot more matchplay coupons and out of strip/Downtown casinos akin to ACG's offers.

I have five copies of the ACG for our upcoming trip. Average purchase price was about $12.86 and would have been lower had target not screwed up an order when they temporarily ran out of stock--I lost some discounts and they refused to reinstate them, though I am pursuing that issue further (with no expectations of success...).

I don't think they are as valuable as they were the first couple of times we had them, but they will give the five us a decent coupon run on our coming trip. They are easily worth what we paid for and some of the group may use coupons beyond the easy free/match play.

We have done these coupons the last 3 years. Even though the value is low I enjoy doing them. 1, it gives me something to do gambling related without spending money, and 2. It is pus ev so that's always fun.

I have fond memories of coupon runs from my first few trips. Even met up with strangers from the LVA to hit distant places like South Point and Emerald Island. One year, Casino Player magazine sent me two funbooks by mistake. Low roller paradise.
