Living in Las Vegas is expensive, especially for a family of five. Anytime we go out we have to pay tourist prices and after a year or two, that really starts to add up. We actively sought out free activities in Vegas all the time. Plus, we visited restaurants where kids eat free in Vegas when we could.
I constantly look for ways to save money, especially on eating out. Here is what I have found so far in Vegas. Each of these are things I have done myself. I hope they help you save on your next Las Vegas Vacation.
12 Ways to Save Money in Las Vegas
1. Use Ebates – Ebates is a website that will give you a percentage of what you spend back. For example, if you use their site and book a hotel through Travelocity you get 6 – 14% back. They send it back to you through PayPal.
2. LivingSocial’s Daily Deals– With a different deal every day you can save money on lots of things. I got a 1-hour massage for $39. They also occasionally have family trip deals. Going to Las Vegas? Find the best deals up to 70% off.
3. Restaurant.com – Las Vegas has almost 200 restaurants that participate in these restaurant gift certificates. Some of my favorites are Memphis Championship BBQ, Pink Taco, Strip burger, House of Blues, and BB Kings. This can really help you have an inexpensive family vacation. Just be careful about the ones that automatically add 18% gratuity. Most restaurants in Vegas do this anyway if there are 5 or more in a party.
4. 3 O’clock Club – This website has good deals every day. Some popular Vegas restaurants are on here such as Hash House a Go Go and popular shows like Nathon Burton.
5. Make Your Own Meals – If you are staying somewhere that has a kitchen you can make meals instead of spending money eating out. Amazon Fresh will deliver groceries around Las Vegas.
6. EverSave – Mostly savings on products which comes in handy if you plan to do some shopping!

8. Drink for free – There are lots of places that will let you drink for free or have buy one get one. Here’s a list of where to get free drinks in Las Vegas. Of course, if you are gambling they will bring you free drinks. You just have to tip the waitress.
