"Viva" at the Stratosphere is an afternoon variety show and a cheap skate show at that. The show has the usual magician, comedian and show girls in a low budget show. This kind of inexpensive non flashy show is getting harder and harder to find in Las Vegas. Click on the story title to be taken to the printable coupon which is $9.95 for the show ticket after a one drink minimum and can be used up for four people, it expires 12/30/06. Show times usually are at 2 and 4pm Monday to Saturday.

One of the cheapest times of the year to visit Las Vegas is the week between Christmas and New Years. Especially right after Christmas, Las Vegas is really quiet and thats the best time to get cheap rooms. Often I have stayed downtown or off strip for really cheap at this time and received flyer's under my door from the property offering additional nights stay for $19 or even $10 per night. Just make sure you are gone by New Years Eve because the rates go through the roof for the same room as the New Years party crowd arrives.

"American Superstars" is a celebrity impersonation show which is at the Stratosphere on the north end of the strip. I have seen the show and most of the impersonators are pretty good although i think the ones at "Legends In Concert" at the Imperial Palace are better. But this printable coupon link that i have may make "American Superstars" worth a visit. If you click the title of the story it will take you too the coupon which is $49.50 and includes one show ticket, one dinner buffet, two drinks and a pass to the tower. The show times in the evening with no late shows so check coupon for times and the coupon expires 12/30/06.

Okay they days of the $2.99 all you can eat buffets in Las Vegas are for the most part gone, but you can still eat well without breaking the bank. Most of the big fancy hotels on the Strip like the Paris, Bellagio, MGM and the Mirage and the like have real fancy buffets with a huge selection of unusual items from around the world. These buffets are great and i would suggest you have one at least once during your trip. But most of the time you just want to eat and get back to gambling or shopping or whatever you plan to do. In general buffets in older, smaller or off strip properties are less expensive and may not have the selection but the food is usually pretty good. The prices in buffets get more expensive generally as the day goes on so breakfast is usually cheapest and then lunch is a little more with dinner being the most expensive. Because Las Vegas is a twenty four hour town if you are out at weird hours and eat then you can save money. Most buffets don't close between sittings so if you show up just before breakfast ends and they start switching over to the lunch items you can eat the lunch items for the breakfast price and the same often works between lunch and dinner. Most hotels offer Seafood or Steak nights or Champagne Brunch, during these times the price of the buffets can raise a lot so if you are a Cheap Skate you may want to avoid these times. Discount coupons for buffets can oftend be found in the show guides in your room or hotel or in the Las Vegas Newspapers as well as in funbooks when you sign up for slot clubs. If you are playing a table game and betting for a while ask the pit boss for a comp for the buffet it doesn't hurt and quite often they will give you one or at least a discount to it.

Okay because I'm a cheap skate there is nothing I like more than a freebie; It used to be easy to get things for free in Las Vegas but its getting harder and harder. If you click the title of this story it will take you to a printable coupon for free entry in to the great Imperial Palace Auto Collection. I have visited this museum many times and its worth the admission price of $10 but if you click the link you can get in for free. If you forget to take the coupon with you, often out front of the Imperial Palace they hand out coupons to get in to the Auto Collection for free as well if you are there at the right time.

Right now the Legendary Stardust has discount room rates and packages for the summer. The Stardust is very old time Las Vegas it may not have Volcanoes or Pirate Battles but thats okay because Cheap Skates don't want to pay for that anyway. It has a large casino a good size pool and rooms that are nothing special but good value for the money. Right now they have summer rates Sunday to Thursday from $59 a night which includes 2 brunch or dinner buffets and 2 for 1 show tickets to either "The Magic Of Rick Thomas" or "Headlights and Tailpipes". Feedback i have had on the Rick Thomas Magic Show is that is a good show and value for the money. Entertainers playing here usually are old time vegas standards, Joan Rivers, Don Rickles, Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme. These people maybe a little bit before mine and a lot of peoples time but the shows are usually fairly inexpensive and entertaining. Okay the code for the discount room package is SUMMER just enter that in the special offer code box.

The New Frontier is an older property on the Strip that will eventaully be replaced with a new upscale resort. But right now through the end of this year they have a online coupon which you can print out which offers $5 matchplay on any of their blackjack tables. You must be a new member of their slot club but that doesn't take long to sign up for. This coupon may not be worth a trip on its own but if you are down that end of the strip it may be worth it.

Okay finding an inexpensive room and the strip is getting real tough but the Sahara which is across the street from the Circus Circus often has good rates on rooms. It is a pretty good sized resort but not as fancy as some of the others on the strip. A few years ago it was remodelled and it standing up fairly well. The Sahara is also the last stop on the monorail which also makes easy to get to some of the larger strip properties. Right now in June and July during the week they have rates as low as $43 which is a bargain nowadays for the strip.
