The $20 Bill Trick
Posted 11/13/2013 11:33:00 AM

This weekend I am going to Las Vegas in staying at the MGM Grand. I'm not a very travel savvy person but my buddy who is going along is. He discovered something online called the $20 bill gimmick. Essentially what you do is hand of the desk clerk at your hotel a 20 with your credit card and ask them if there are any rooms available for upgrade. We are both wondering whether this is an actual tactic that works or if it's a sleezy move. Either way, in the name of radio entertainment, we are going to try it.

According to the Internet:

The twenty dollar bill trick is sweeping the travel industry and becoming extremely popular, especially in Las Vegas. When you check into a hotel you simply slip the front desk clerk a $20 bill with your credit card, while asking "Do you have any complimentary upgrades available?". The general rule of thumb is that the front desk clerk will check for upgrades and if they cannot find anything they will return the $20 tip, making it risk free!
