I'm the same boat newbie to Vegas. This Royal offer is all people talk about but when you click one the link it doesn't state what the offer is!
What is the offer??

There are 786 pages in this thread...is there a simplified "prep for Vegas cheat sheet / to do list" to refer to? Like how far in advance to plan? Should we book a package or hotel directly etc. Etc..

Help!
Thanks
Not sure how you're looking. But if you click on the link, then Book Now and pick your dates, you can see the offer details.

We visited the Atomic Testing Museum.

On their website they show the regular adult ticket price as US$22. There is groupon for $30 for 2 persons. We tried to buy groupon, but it kept failing.

When we got there, we told the cashier we tried to buy the discount coupon on groupon but it failed. We showed them another discount coupon for $4 off, which would bring it to $18/p. But they said they can do the same as groupon discount. When the guy rung up the charge, it showed $24 (or $12/p) which is better than groupon. Not sure what kind of discount he gave us, but $24 is better than $30, better than $36, and better than $44.

It's been 8 years since I was last in Vegas, feels like the price on stuff has gone up a lot since then. We booked 5 activities (Red Rock, Hoover Dam, NHL, Terry Fator, Tenors of Rock) and it ended up over a thousand bucks! It's incredible the deals folks in bigger cities get, from Moncton it costs a fortune so we decided to fly on points and we're staying at the Hilton (timeshare) resort behind the Flamingo for the week.

One area I'm lost though is for meal options on the strip area. In particular we'd like to find some cheap breakfast/brunch options as we're hoping to have a single larger meal during the day and then have supper. We're not fancy eaters either and would much rather cheaper good food (e.g. Cheesecake Factory) than the fancy looking 3-4 bites main dish that costs 50$ (e.g. Spago).

Also buffet wise, we're thinking Aria, or are there other better options in the same price range (I think its 36$ a person)? On a good day I can eat maybe 1.5 plates so a pricier buffet like the Wynn is out. We also don't drink so liquor isn't a consideration. Oh, and are there good breakfast buffets around 10-15$ a person on the strip?

Strongly recommend Aria buffet for breakfast/lunch. It's an even better value if you can use Vegas points or some other offer to get BOGO for the buffet.

Actually that begs, the question, any suggestions on where to get BOGO or coupons for buffets? It sure won't be comp'ed since I only gamble 20-40$ per casino (sounds cheap but it adds up considering the sheer quantity)

The American Casino Guide is great for all sorts of Vegas coupons. If you have the time it is available on Amazon.

You mentioned you're staying behind the Flamingo. If you don't mind walking slightly off strip, I recommend checking out the nearby Ellis Island casino for their bbq ribs. One full rack serving (about $15 with a player's card, if I remember correctly) is enough for two people. Onsite brewery as well. If you're into blackjack, the conditions are much better than on the strip ($5 tables paying 3:2 on blackjacks).

Downtown (north) vegas has lots of great, cheap eats. Try California casino's oxtail soup! About $11. Though it's only available 11pm-9am.

For cheap strip buffets, there's the Monte Carlo. Around $10-$12 from Tix4Tonite. Pretty basic buffet, nothing special.

I'm getting hungry...

Thanks for the advice cruz, I will check that guide and your other suggestions. I did have a book when I went in 2009 but it had no coupons, it was more of a review book and a casino guide as to what odds to look for on what machines, etc.

Gambling we had tried most casino's on the strip, I think this time maybe I'll limit myself to the nicer ones, the Wynn in particular had impressed us, if it wasn't that we were timesharing i would gladly stay there even if it's not central to the strip.

You could also try M Life or M Rewards (can't remember exactly what it's called). Also, play the Vegas game and you can redeem your points for rewards.

I would play MyVegas the Facebook game to earn free stuff. Earning a BOGO Aria Lunch buffet is pretty easy (although its only good Mon to Fri). There is a RFD thread on MyVegas. Check it out.

For breakfast, I would recommend Hash House a GoGo. Portion size is large at a good price. Kept us full until dinner.

I would not recommend Mirage buffet. Everything under heat lamps, did not look appealing, plus I was sick after eating breakfast there.

Bellagio buffet was OK ( Mandarin is better). I did enjoy Aria buffet.

Also you can get coupons here at Earl of Sandwich- also good value food.

You could do the buffet of buffets too. You can stretch that into 4 meals and you're good for nearly 2 days. But do the other buffets you're interested in first because after the buffet of buffets you won't want to see another buffet for a while.

I started on MyVegas, I see some RFD'ers are on there, high level too! I'll check the thread and I figure I'll be able to get at least one BOGO or two there.

Buffet of buffets is too much. Most ppl in Vegas a short time and that is way too much time spend at buffets IMO Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

I go to Vegas every year so I play a lot of MyVegas. I'm level 349. I've gotten free rooms, free buffets, two free cirque shows. I LOVE MYVEGAS!

I booked the Royal offer for a stay at the MGM Grand in two weeks. Does any one know for certain if I can charge the cost of The Buffet at Bellagio to my room and redeem a portion of the $150 resort credit for that meal?
