Vegas for cheap!

August 4th, 2008 at 04:01 pm

Here's how I booked a standard room for two nights at The Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for $22.27 a night:

Expedia has the room for $111 with the second night FREE. (+$5.45 per night for taxes and service fees.)
I used a $50 coupon I had from my last trip.
Expedia threw in a $25 gas card for staying two nights.
I used my Discover credit card to receive an additional 5% off.

($122-$50-$25)*0.95 = $44.55/2 = $22.27

Additionally, I used SkyMiles (21 days in advance) to book the plane ticket which only cost $10.

I'll use my club card to get a discount on the buffet across the street so breakfast will be only $5.95.

Now I just need a coupon for the Eiffel Tower.

Next week is my 6 mo. check-up after having LASIK done last February. I just dropped off four pairs of my old glasses to donate to the Lions. What a wonderful feeling of not needing them anymore and giving them to people that might get some use out of them!
