Las vegas advisor coupon booklet?

Hi, can anyone tell me if it is worth joining the las vegas advisor membership for 37 dollars? I was looking at the booklet that comes with it and there seems to be some good coupons. We are visiting in July for 10 nights so can anyone advise if it would be worthwhile for us? We enjoy eating out and drinking too and we may be watching some shows so all round quite varied in what we like to do.

Hope this info helps.

Yes, for me it is. The membership includes access to the forums, online coupons and the monthly newsletter. I think LVA is by far the best LV website.

Losvu, I suspect the OP isn't especially interested in the LVA website and forums. I think that it's the coupons they're asking about.

Catherine, if there are coupons for things that you'll be doing anyway and will get back more than you pay then go for it. You can't lose!

I personally don't like being tied to coupons when on vacation as I want to eat, go to spas and gamble where I choose. But if I have definite plans and know it's worth my while to invest in coupons then I wouldn't hesitate.

I agree with Blagger. Having done a large amount of research of coupons, attempting to find the best book for the best discounts on food, etc, I found that in the end I just got tiered of it.

I am not sure if others would agree, but find out what you truly want to do first. From there, find the coupon book that works best for you (by looking at their list). For us, we wanted a few shows, Eiffel tower at Paris, roller coaster at NYNY, Titanic exhibit. We bought the American Casino Guide for ~12 bucks on Amazon. It gave us discounts to all we wanted to do and would save us a few bucks. On top of that, it had a few 2-1 drinks, free play, buffet at Golden Nugget, etc. So, it saved us a few bucks. I also used travelzoo.com to get cheaper seats at our shows. I looked at LVA and the 37 bucks was not worth it for what we were going to be doing. However, it is different for everyone depending on the activities they plan to do. I came to realize it seems much better to plan the trip to what you would enjoy, then find what coupons would work, rather than planning your trip around the coupons

Long story short, find out what you want to do first. If the coupons match up with that, go for it!

Didn't someone post a link to one that expires soon? I feel like it was this past week or two.

Yes I would say it is worth it . Ellis Island BBQ and 3 rounds of drinks for 2 . 2 for 1 Burger Brasserie and 2 for 1 buffet at Mirage and 10 dollars off Planet Holleywood buffet. It really shines downtown though got to try the Flame restaurant at El Cortez 30 dollars off bill. 2 for 1 at Golden Nugget and freeplay at downtown casinos just some of what we did. Yes sign in to the website and read the forums it will give you some ideas of what you might try.

Hello Catherine.

I have purchased the LVA consecutively for 5 years and it still holds decent value. However, that value is ever decreasing and is becoming more marginal with each passing year as more and more coupons have been omitted without worthwhile replacement.

Additionally, I seem to have postage problems most years and have to chase them up so I probably won't bother again unless the coupons improve significantly.

Have a look at the American Casino Guide too. The coupons in there will be useful and you can get it on Amazon for about 12 quid.

Who cares about the forums, I would never pay a membership to belong to a forum, hell block me on all of them I don't care...lol! As for coupons, that's how others get rich by providing this service you pay them for the membership and they get rich off of you, when you can just google places like destinationcoupons.com or lasvegascoupons.com there are many that are printable online for freaking free!

One chooses to join LVA and as a member you can access members only forums, newsletter, online coupons and coupon book. You are not paying for just one feature.

Many LVA coupons are exclusive, and are available nowhere else. Many consider the $50 Palms coupon and the Ellis Island coupons some of the best exclusive offers.

No one can decide other than you if the cost is worth it to you, look at the coupons and decide.

Do not think you can get comparable coupons elsewhere, you can't. Yes, some are readily available, most are not.

Catherine H - this is what I did to decide if it was worth it to me this year. (I've been a member of LVA for a few years now, but they got rid of one the coupons I regularly used, so I needed to re-evaluate this year.) I copied and pasted their list of coupons into an Excel document, then put a dollar value next to the coupons that I knew I would absolutely use. It came up to way more than $37, so I'm renewing again this year.

Hope that helps.
