$20 check-in tip - does it work in AC?

Going to AC Friday, Oct 2nd and got a comped room at Harrahs. But know I see in reading this forum that there's a 7 Stars event going on and I'm only Diamond. Does anyone every use the $20 check-in tip in AC?? I used it 2 weeks ago at Diamond Check-in in LV/Flamingo and it worked there.

Thanks!

No one can ever tell you that this will definately work. You can try. With it being a 7 Stars weekend I would guess that there are less discretionary upgrades than usual available.

never tried it,but i have the impression its not common practice in ac,and you will stand just as much chance by asking poitly rather that trying it. what room or tower are you booked in now? do you have any playing history at harrahs ac yet?

Keep in mind that this 7* signature event is being held in AC for ALL of the HET properties.

I would imagine that there are going to be more 7* players this weekend than any other weekend, including NYE.

You can try, but don't be surprised if they don't upgrade you. The place is going to be a mad house.

So...How about a $50 tip - Placed with your key -

after a PA bus trip key distribution -

While holding a $50 Bill around your room key...

To the Desk Clerk...you say...

Gee... We would really like a room with a Hot Tub or Jaccuzzi...Can you help us out...???

Would this work???

PS - Does the front desk offer Viagra? LOL!!!

Ted, I can't say for sure that it wont work, anything is possible if you catch the right person. I'd say it is highly doubtful on that weekend. All of the suites are most likely blocked for certain players and they frown on giving a blocked room away.

Good Luck!

Well,last year at the airshow at Caesars,I went to the $100 trick,and scored a perect view.Was worth it to me at the time,may not be worth it to you.Maybe $50 will work in OCT.Everbody uses $20,kick it up a notch and see what happens.

Not sure that a $20. on a busy weekend will really work, however, Ted's idea of a $50... if there even is a possibility of an upgrade, a $50. will get it -I feel sure of that!

I, personally, would just take the room they gave me.. its only for a night..but we all have our own comfort levels.

Nancy, keep in mind, this is not just a busy weekend. This is the annual 7* weekend, which is being held in AC this year. AC has the most 7* players out of all the other HET properties and I really think that just getting a room on this weekend is an accomplishment for a non 7* player.

As I said, you can try, but I wouldn't be very hopeful.

I tried this at Ballys for a comped room. Didnt want the Claridge so i gave the girl a $20, she put us in a really nice room at the Dennis tower.
