I would like to encourage my readers to read the “Comments” that appear after I post a blog. They often contain valuable information on promotions and other money-saving techniques, some that is news to me and perhaps also to many of you. For example, one of the comments on my last blog gave good details about a shuttle available for travel between Las Vegas and Laughlin. Sometimes a spirited discussion will ensue among the commenters, and I sometimes answer questions that have come up from readers. This sharing of helpful casino information reminds me of the phrase “It takes a village….”
It is easy to keep up without going back and forth between blogs and scrolling to the bottom of each one for possible comments. When you are on my blog page, look for the section titled “Recent Comments” on the right side of the page and you can click on those you would like to read. Not everyone reads my blogs or comments on them the day I post them. But that list on the right side of the blog page will keep you up to date on current comments and those that may appear later. (Other reasons to check on the right side of my blog page: you can “Subscribe” so you will get an e-mail when I post a new blog, and you can also search in the “Archives” and find every Frugal Fridays and Frugal Vegas blog I have ever posted – from way back in April 2000!)
The usual free slot tournament South Point runs on senior Mondays will not be held on Monday, March 19. Also remember the all-day Monday $4 movie promo for seniors is “not valid on holidays or special events.”
Hooters Casino Hotel has opened the world’s largest Steak’n Shake location – and with a bar and slot machines to boot. We old-time Midwesterners would never have believed those would ever be added to their juicy hamburgers or thick milkshakes!
Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is the latest casino company to offer a room discount to active and veteran military, police, fire fighters, teachers, and other service personnel. Also, their new players club will give all active and retired members of the United States Military Gold Tier status, with extra benefits. As with all casinos and players clubs, you will need to check their websites for specific requirements to get extra benefits, and more importantly, you will need to check the limitations. Many of these special programs have tons of fine print to wade through!
My March 4 blog gave you many of the details about this fun feast of frugal information to help you save money on travel expenses and casino visits. (I like alliteration!)
I also gave you the link to complete details of the Zorkfest event which is sponsored by TravelZork, a website covering airlines, hotels, casinos, Vegas, and loyalty programs. There you will find the pictures, bios, and subject material of the many experts who will be speaking, and details of event schedules and registration fees.
However, I am writing about it again because the deadline to take advantage of the lowest registration fee is coming up fast – in fact it is this coming Tuesday, March 20. You will be able to register later, of course, but the cost will be higher. And you know me – I like to be sure my readers are aware of the most frugal options! I truly believe that many – even most – attendees will learn a few new frugal techniques that will save them more money in the future than they invest in the registration fees. (And when you register, be sure to add the code zorklva for extra discounts!)
The seminar speakers are experts in a variety of travel and casino fields, and more subjects have been added to the wide range that were initially listed. Here are some of them:
-Learn the Best Travel Award Redemptions
-Expert Tips to Book Travel and Credit Card Strategies
-Casino Comps, VIP Status and Offers
-Miles & Points – Tips and Tricks
-Family Travel and Cruise Promotions
As I said in the earlier blog, Brad and I will be there most of the time during this event, both before and after I speak, and we look forward to meeting new and long-time fellow frugalites.
