Las Vegas has it's ups and downs to extremes. When the economy goes down, Las Vegas is way down and everything is cheaper. Bargains are harder to find in Las Vegas when times are good. Here are some tested and used tips for finding cheap or discounted tickets to shows in Las Vegas .
Sign up for clubs
Although they have more information about you, the various club cards will get you some perks as you gamble and stay in the hotels. Keep in mind that Las Vegas is dominated by a couple of corporate groups - MGM Mirage and Harrah's . Each of the cards covers their various properties. These two companies own most of the Las Vegas Strip.
Stay at the hotel
Hotels may offer special packages combing shows with a room at their hotel. Or it may be a dinner and show package.
The half-price show offices
There are two companies that offer half-price and discount tickets to certain shows in Las Vegas . Locations open around 11am. You'll see the crowds. Don't expect the hottest shows to be on sale here but we have seen some pretty big name shows on occasion. They may throw a few tickets to these places for the advertising factor in being listed. You get the show in your head even though the tickets are already gone and then you go buy the higher priced ones.
One company is at the Coke Bottle by the MGM Grand .
The other company has four locations on the Strip: by the Riviera, in front of the Fashion Show Mall, inside the Four Queens Casino on Fremont Street and by the outdoor Hawaiian Market.
Practice your disciplinary skills
If you are willing to sit through a Time Share pitch, have patience and nerves of steel, there are booths that will give you show tickets for listening. If you walk around a few of the casinos, you're bound to be approached by them. They are very aggressive and may even get abusive if you don't give in to what they propose. Whatever you do, don't give in and buy a time share. But if you're tough, you can get free tickets out of it.
