Hello Tangerineys from Las Vegas! If you’re new to our Channel, I’m Jordan, this is Maddie, and we’re Tangerine Travels. So in a previous video We were telling you tips on How To Do Vegas Cheap, how to do it on a budget. We’ve gotten a lot of comments saying there’s no way you can go to Vegas and have a good time if you’re not spending hundreds And hundreds of dollars a day. Whether that’s on the hotel room, on gambling, drinks, everything. So today we are going to put that into action and show you that you can have an awesome time With fifty dollars or less per person per day! And what does that include? That includes lodging, resort fees, Gambling, drinking budget, eating out, entertainment, everything! Absolutely everything. Everything for $50 per person per day. So, let’s go! Let’s go get some breakfast! We had to make a quick pit stop by the MLife Desk to use a MyVegas reward or get one loaded on to our Card, and that is for a buy one get one breakfast buffet. So we’re heading to the buffet now. Hi, I’d like to redeem a buy one get one free for breakfast. Using our buy one get one free from MyVegas, After tax, before tip, this came out to less than eleven dollars per person. That is one of the best values on the strip. Bacon! [Laughter] The buffet was super good as usual. And as usual I’m leaving there with a gigantic food baby So what better thing could we do then go have some pool time? Go sit out in a bikini. We’re going this way. Okay, we’re going this way. [Laughter] Or maybe that’s the worst idea ever, but that’s what’s next on our list. We’re walking around like we’re drunk, we haven’t even had a drink! Jordan’s like this… Well I’m trying to go that way, you’re trying to go this way. As we said in our previous Video, one great way to get into pool parties free, or into nightclubs, is to go to freevegasclubpasses.com So that’s what we did and we got the hook-up for free entry into the Flamingo day party today, or at the Flamingo pool. Which, if we get there before noon, We both get free entry and a free drink for the lady. And didn’t you say that it is pretty atypical to get same-day Free entry? Usually you have to look days in advance, especially for like a weekend day? Yeah, for example I went on there this morning and there was only one Available. We could only do Flamingo. But if we booked for tomorrow, there were four available So if you do in advance, there’s going to be more options for you Yeah, don’t wait to the last minute or you’re gonna get the slim pickins items. So if you’re with a group of all guys, you’re probably going to struggle to get into day clubs or night clubs for free. But if you have an even ratio of guys or girls like us or Us two. 50/50, even ratio, Woo! Or if you’re with a group of girls, then you’re going to have a lot more options! However, if you’re with all guys and You have status and casino loyalty programs You can probably get into a lot more places for free and we’ll cover how to do that later in this video. So now we are headed back up to our room at The LINQ really quick to change into our swimsuits and head over. When we got to the Flamingo pool there was a huge general admissions line! Luckily We were able to use our Caesars Diamond card to skip the line and get right in immediately. Thanks guys! Mimosa! Okay, so we almost got kicked out because we had our camera out and apparently that’s not allowed at the pool. We had a swarm of security guard. It was like “Woah!” But I enjoyed my free mimosa and we spent some time at the pool listening to music, And I really like that pool! Greenery everywhere! There’s like waterfalls. You can see the LINQ High Roller. Super cool! But something else we can do for free here while we’re at Flamingo. Oh, yes! We’re right by this animal habitat with all of these Flamingos, turtles, fish! So We’re going to go check that out. Totally free! So I said there were fish, but I had no idea there were freaking gigantic fish! Jordan goes “oh, yeah, that’s carp.” I’m pretty sure if you stick your finger in there, it will bite your entire arm off. It’s so big! I’m pretty sure they’re not carnivores! So we’ve been here for almost a full day at this point I think (since checking in yesterday) and we haven’t done any gambling So we’re heading to our favorite casino to do that And that is The Cromwell because we like the jacks or better machines there, And we get drinks really fast, and they’re the premium drinks. Alright, so to do Vegas for $50.00 in a day You have to – have to drink while gambling if you’re going to drink at all! So we’re going into The Cromwell. We’re bringing 20 bucks in each. And that has to last for gambling and tips for drinks. And we’re losing no more than that. So we’ll see how it goes And to clarify, we’re not going to count any winnings toward the total because The point we are trying to illustrate here is you could take $50 and have It last for a bunch of stuff throughout the day. So within about, I don’t know, a minute of sitting down. The cocktail waitress came over To take our order and now we have 2 drinks, all in less that 5 minutes. So that is why we love Cromwell! And they’re good drinks. Mmm-Hmm! Aperol spritz, one of my favorites! So I wasn’t even halfway through my first drink when the waitress came over again and we got another round So once again, super fast drinks! And that’s one more dollar each. What you can order the various casinos Varies. At the various casinos varies, depending on the casino And how nice it is and what they want to offer. This drink I just got was Baileys and coffee because I was feeling a little bit tired. And if you ever curious what you can get, you can just ask them. Here, for instance, the Tequila is Patron, which is a Pretty expensive tequila in the US. I’m not going to get all snooty on you and tell you which ones I actually prefer in Mexico. [Laughter] Hint: It’s not Patron. Hint, not Patron! [Laughter] I’m only a drink and a half in [Jordan stuttering] and I’m already feeling it! They have a strong pour here. And we’ve only been here 15 minutes and we just ordered our third drink. [Rowdy Craps table to our left] So we usually play max bet when we’re playing video poker But today, since we absolutely do not want to run out of money because you can have up swings and down swings We are playing one credit at a time. So even if we have bad luck, our money doesn’t go away nearly as fast. Going into that gambling session we said “To make things fair, we’re not going to count any winnings.” And it’s actually kind of complicated because as you’re gambling You lose a little, you win a little. So ultimately what we decided to try to make things fair Is that if we’re over we can keep playing with that money. But once we’re down, we’re down. So I was down $7.00 and Jordan was up – What were you up? Fifteen. Fifteen dollars. So Jordan can keep playing with that money if he wanted, but we cap it at 20. So if we’re putting anything back into our daily budget It’s only going to be 20, not more, because we’re not trying to say that if you win you can have a good time We’re trying to say that you can use a little bit of your money to gamble get some free drinks and free water bottles by The way – great money-saving tip! And you could still have a good time with that amount of money Even if you lose your ass gambling, as long as you’re playing low limits, you can still get a lot of free drinks (without losing a lot of money). Maddie had a really bad session here. She lost a lot But she was only playing 25 cents at a time. So despite losing $7, she got Six, I think, free drinks during that time. And drinks here are Expensive! That’s like 10 or 15 bucks a piece if you’re going the bar. So I had to run back up to the room really quick because my shoes were giving me blisters, and meanwhile Jordan is downstairs picking up some tickets because one of the cool things that comes with, I think it’s all Caesars properties, But specifically LINQ where we’re staying, is you get $10.00 High Roller tickets. Which is highly discounted from the normal price. I think it’s something like $25 or more for the open bar ones, So we are gonna get in on that action in a minute! After having lots of drinks at The Cromwell, as they would say in Mexico, Estamos bien pedos [Laughter] We’re really drunk! [Laughter] So I think it’s time to take a break from drinking and go on the High Roller, and we have two Tickets for ten dollars each. If you’re trying to do Vegas really cheap just avoid attractions like this all together But we thought with a fifty-dollar budget we can afford ten dollars. In our previous Las Vegas tips video We recommended checking out Groupon before you do absolutely anything on the strip. But before you purchase that, we also recommend Ebates or now, it’s Rakuten It’s a free extension that applies additional coupons, gives you cash back as well. So it’s just more money back in your pocket We have a link down in the description that you can use to get $10 off your first qualifying purchase This is not a sponsored video We just love Ebates and we’ve been using it for years! And know it saves us a lot of money on stuff We’re already buying. First time we did this at world’s largest observation wheel We did the open bar version. And I’m not saying they forced drinks on us or anything, but we left they’re like Woo hoo!! Shockingly drunk for only being on there for like 30 minutes I think? A half hour, yeah. It’s like “What happened?” [Laughter] The first time we got it on me Groupon. [Guy yelling “Tangerine Travels”] Hey! [Laughter] The first time we got it on Groupon and that included an open bar which is significantly more expensive But that was $35 a person I think. So 10 bucks a person, no alcohol included, but I think it’s a good deal. So we totally forgot this, but once you’re at the height of the High Roller, you can – actually for longer than that – You can see down to the Bellagio fountain show. So if you time it just right I think 45 minutes. After the hour. After the hour, You’ll probably get to see the show from the highest vantage point of the whole strip. So if you can do that, that would make this even more worthwhile But honestly such a cool experience just to see the whole strip and everything around! So if the normal version of this is around $25, I’m not totally sure it’s worth that to me, but for $10 I think I would enjoy doing this just about every time we would come to Vegas If that’s every couple of months or so And I do think the open bar is kind of a cool experience if you’re looking to Get where you want to go in a very short amount of time. The 30 minutes goes by super fast! And also, if you’re looking to update your Instagram feed, this Is a perfect time to do it because there’s almost unlimited amount of times You could take a picture from a 360 angle. But have a friend with you. But have a friend with you! Okay, we could not have accidentally Not planned this better. We didn’t make any plans today, we’re just going with the flow. But Harvest Hour, one of our favorite things to do on the strip, is happening from five to strip [Maddie making fun of herself] [Laughter] Five to six and it is five right now! So we’re heading over to Bellagio. So we are here in Bellagio now, and we’re about to use a MyVegas reward We talked about how to get these rewards in our video How to do Vegas Cheap – How to do Las Vegas Cheap. So each of us gets a free drink at What’s the place called? It’s called Harvest, and the happy hour is called Harvest Hour. For any of these rewards We always have to redeem them at the Mlife desk And that’s just basically, you show your rewards card and an ID, and then they activate on your account so you can go use it At wherever or whatever it is. Hi guys, how’s it going? Hi! How are you? We have a MyVegas reward for the Harvest Hour. Yep, so there’s your drinks, wine, and a beer. Okay, okay. Similar to when we were playing video poker at Cromwell These come with paper straws Which is something that’s pretty common here in Vegas For a city this big and super wasteful, I really appreciate all the little efforts they make to reduce plastic waste. Especially, like in our hotel The LINQ, they have – kind of the on the wall, push to dispense, shampoo and conditioner. Which I was a little bit sad about at first, because I always love taking those little bottles home But I can’t even imagine how many tiny bottles of plastic They’re keeping out of landfill every year. So that is very cool. Harvest Hour has got to be one of our favorite happy hours around here. Granted, they aren’t super cheap They’re seven dollars a piece, but they are a really good, really high quality (drinks). And it’s a super easy MyVegas reward to get. So we almost always come here on our trips. We are not done with this video yet, but if you’re enjoying this, please subscribe to our channel To see future Vegas videos that we’re going to do and also travel vlogs that we do in Mexico and across the world. We mentioned in another video that there’s tons of free things to do in Las Vegas Pretty much every hotel is so elaborate and there’s something to see and do it every single one that’s totally free. And Bellagio is one of the best! You have the fountain show that goes every hour during the day and I think it’s every half-hour at night And then this conservatory that’s constantly changing. Bellagio is one of my personal Favorites to come to because of this rotating flower display. It’s different every single time and there’s fresh flowers, often animals, Music going on in the background. It is just a whole shebang. And you can walk around take your Instagram pictures Take couple pictures together. We have so many over the past three years And they change it five times a year. One for each season and then one for Chinese New Year. So honestly, I think this is one of the best, if not the Best free things to do on the Las Vegas Strip in my humble opinion, And I don’t think I will ever get bored of this and we will never not come here on a trip! Absolutely! And now we are going to take one of the free transportation options on the Las Vegas Strip, the Aria-Bellagio tram I think it’s just the Aria tram, right? It’s called the Aria Express Aria express. To who? You guessed it, Aria! But it actually goes from Bellagio and Then there’s a stop at one side of Aria and then there’s a stop at the other side of Aria, Which is also Park MGM. The doors are now closing. The next stop is Park MGM and Aria Resort and Casino. Anytime we get off here it smells so good! It really does! Like a vanilla – Vanilla Fresh smell and I don’t know if you guys know this but casinos actually scent the inside to promote Wakefulness, to promote more gambling, and I don’t know. I’ll visit the casinos that smell like vanilla! Heck Yes, sign me up! [Laughter] Don’t let them trick you though. Yeah. Keep an eye on that wallet. You watch out! You watch your nose! Maddie’s been wanting a fanny pack and I thought she was a huge nerd She’s been looking on Amazon and finally found this one. I think – but surprisingly, I think it actually looks pretty good on you! Yeah back story on this I’ve been looking all over – Not looking, I’ve been seeing all over Mexico a bunch of packs from my fanny – is what I always say A pack for my fanny. Jokingly, but I always was like maybe I’d like that is something like a Hands-free thing that I can easily get into. I finally found one I had to give him the whole spiel: If I don’t like it, You can’t give me crap for it because I haven’t had one Of these since I was like five! You were telling me a story about how you had all your important stuff in it. Oh, yeah, when I was little – all my important stuff: like stickers pencils Like a chapstick – all the important kid stuff that you could ever have. And now I have all the important stuff That an adult can have! Lika a camera and more chapstick, and yes, I do have stickers in here! [Laughter] Well, they’re called band-aids, but [Laughter] [Laughter] Alright. Enough now, thank you and bu-bye But anyway, why did we stop at the Aria shops at Crystal or the Crystal shops at Aria or whatever the crap it’s called. [Laughter] There are actually a lot of shops here that you can look in if you have like a flippity jillion dollars And these cool like water tornado things that you can look at, and sculptures like this one – the big ass instrument. That’s shaped like a wooden instrument of some kind. So also another free thing that you could do that’s just part of one of these massive Hotels with so much stuff in them that you will – it’s just hard to be bored here. That’s one of the reasons why we like it! So this is a brand new art installation That we’ve never seen before and apparently it’s made out of ice. That is maintained at – what did it say? 5 Degrees? Negative five Fahrenheit. Negative five Fahrenheit So all of these are actual ice and they have core. A Five-inch core on the inside at negative-five degrees. With colorful rotating lights on here. I mean, you can feel the cold from here. I can’t, I’m too short. You can tell, though, that over here, someone did feel how cool it was because they decided to Leave their hand on their for enough time. Wow! And then someone else was like… Have some respect, people! I hope it was their finger. [Laughter] Jordan! I might overuse this word, but I’d say this is pretty cool! [Maddie fake laughing] [Genuine laughter] So now we’re in the Aria casino We’re looking to rest our legs a little bit and we still need to get dinner later on tonight So we’re going to bet an insignificant amount on a five cent Buffalo machine here. It’s a one cent Buffalo machine. One cent, but I’m pretty sure you have to… Can you bet one cent on this? You can but we usually play 20 cents. Okay, Alright, you can literally bet one cent on this, I had no idea, I thought it was a minimum of five. But anyway, not important We’re gonna bet just a little bit of – a little amount just to be able to sit down and relax a little bit And thanks to Jordan He’s lending me some of his winnings from earlier so that we can still be within the challenge today Because you only have about eleven dollars left and you need it for dinner. Yes. I need my eleven dollars for dinner I don’t want to starve. You ready? Let’s win! Oh Yes! Yes! You hit a free spin! I got a free game! This was literally our first spin that we recorded and free spins maybe happened one in fifty, one in a hundred spins. Alright, so we played here at Aria for about an hour and a half, and between the two of us We ended up down exactly fifteen dollars, canceling out my winnings from earlier. We each got two drinks while we were here We could have gotten more had we been drinking faster, but we’re already pretty good in that department if you know what I mean! [Laughter] Honestly, Aria hasn’t been our go-to in the past for quick drinks. No. Because they’ve been very very slow on their cocktail service. That might be because we’re usually around to here for their breakfast or brunch Because we really like their buffet here! I think my favorite buffet that we’ve tried. We haven’t tried all of them, but of the ones we’ve tried, Aria is my favorite. When we can get it with a buy one get one. It is pretty expensive. Yeah, for us, we’ll probably only do it when we have a buy one get one free Oh, and at this point, you’re probably wondering how the freaking heck do we get these free things and status? So Jordan is going to explain that now in the briefest way possible, because honestly, This could be an entire video series on its own. It’s a little bit complex, but we can simplify it to get you guys started. How do you get status? Well this is their casino loyalty programs. And with Caesars We have diamond status which waives all resort fees and Caesars is a really good hotel in giving you free nights for not a whole lot of gambling. Or… I shouldn’t say hotel – hotel chain. They’re very Loose with their free hotels. Like we were playing video poker earlier at 25 cents a hand It’d be Disingenuous to tell you that’s gonna get free rooms because it’s not. It takes a lot of video poker play to get free rooms But it doesn’t take that much slot play to get free rooms We play a little bit of slots here and there, so that’s how we were able to get a free stay here. But how do we get diamond status? Well, we did it by matching with our MLife (MGM) gold status to Caesars Diamond, they’re currently running a promotion. But without spending a whole bunch of money on Mlife properties or Caesars properties, how else can you get it? If you have status in Wyndham You can match that with Caesars status and to get status at Wyndham You can either get an IHG credit card, a Hilton credit card, or a Marriott credit card, and then you can use the status you get from those credit cards to convert status to Wyndham, and then status in Caesars, which gets you free resort fees, no resort fees! The no resort fees is just one of many benefits that comes with being Caesars diamond. You also get free show tickets every month, free nights at hotels in Dubai, and in the Caribbean at Atlantis, free parking. Tons of other stuff comes with that! Alright, so back to the video we have a little bit of money left but not much and food on the strip is Extremely expensive if you don’t know where to look. So we’re going to show you our last trick for this video Actually, maybe not. One of maybe? The last tricks for this video for how to save money on the strip in regards to food. On our way back to the hotel room we pass by this stage at The LINQ where it seems like just about every night They have some type of shenanigans going on. In this case It was the cha-cha slide where the performers were having everyone get up and dance with them So that was a lot of fun and yet another example Of a fun and free thing that you can do on the Las Vegas Strip Oh and sadly, this song has a copyright on it, which is why we had to use different music overtop. Womp-womp-womp! So Jordan, I don’t know if you know this but for our 7th grade talent show I did the cha-cha slide With a friend. Yeah. On a pogo stick. With no hands! One hop this time! Is there anything cooler than that? And there is something we forgot to mention We got so many comments on our How to do Las Vegas Cheap video of people saying there’s no way you can get free drinks! Vegas has become so stingy. You just can’t do it There’s some truth to that when it comes to sitting at a bar when it spits out a drink coupon when you put a certain amount Of coin-in. Or if you’re betting high on a slot machine or something like that, then yeah, You’re gonna go through a lot more cash before you get those free drinks. But the way that we do it is we bet lower and not at a bar to where we get free drinks Uh-huh way more than we actually need to where we’re turning them down. Yeah, and preferably had a fancier casino because that was another comment We got a lot of – saying “Oh, you have to order beer, all the drinks are watered down.” So hopefully this video shows you that that’s not actually the case You just have to know a little bit better how to do it, how to go about it. Mm-hmm another perk of being Diamond in Caesars Rewards Is that every month you get two free show tickets to a long list of shows and we really wanted to see Mat Franco. And we really wanted to see that today so we could include it in this fifty dollar challenge But the next showtime is tomorrow on Friday. But I feel like we could kind of include that in today shenanigans considering it’s completely free! No fees, No charges, no holds. Nothing, nothing! These tickets would have cost over a hundred and thirty dollars each. Each! So that’s just one more huge benefit of Doing that status match to become diamond in Caesars. And we’re only telling you this right now because we are waiting for dinner Which is hopefully going to show up soon because I’m freaking hungry! We’re in our room right now waiting for our Uber Eats that we ordered. And we spent every last cent We had between the two of us to get that. Well after tip, we’re literally going to leave him our last penny [Laughter] So that will be coming soon. But that’s our basically our last trick for this video. You will probably find better deals on Uber Eats than you will on the strip And it can be delivered right to your hotel You just have to go down and pick it up. Generally like the Uber pickup area. Rideshare area. Jordan? I’m sorry it took so long to get here with all of that construction back there. No problem. Have a good night. Thanks, you too! Doesn’t get more convenient than that and at the end of the day That’s all I really want is to eat food in bed while watching TV or something. Or heck, we could even go down To the casino and gamble while eating that. Uh-huh. If we wanted to – probably not gonna happen though. Yeah So today I feel like this went very well! Yeah, this was a super fun day! I don’t feel deprived at all from any Experiences, like we basically did, ate, drank, saw, Everything. Slept. Slept? As in our room was covered. Oh! [Laughter] But yeah, this was an amazingly fun day! So when you know how to do Vegas and you know some tricks, you have some tricks up your sleeve You can have an awesome time and that doesn’t have to mean gambling all your money away or anything like that Yeah, we each had plenty – more than enough drinks. And we each redeemed one MyVegas reward and we took advantage of some of our Caesars Diamond perks. So all that combined makes it for a very cheap, and fun, and drunk day. [Laughter] We hope you guys enjoyed this video and it gives you some ideas for how you can do Vegas cheaper, Save some money, have an awesome time while you’re here!
