When it comes to getting the most out of your Las Vegas trip, look no further than our top tips for pinching those pennies!

Join the Club
There's always an advantage to joining the various players' clubs wherever you happen to stay. Joining those where you don't usually stay comes in handy as well, with all sorts of deals for members. Over at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, members can take advantage of the "Off the Menu" Steak and Shrimp Special at Mr. Lucky's 24-7 Diner for $7.77.

Fall of Atlantis Aquarium
Primarily associated with some of the high-end storefronts in Vegas, The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is also home to great free entertainment like the Fall of Atlantis Aquarium. Fountain statues come to life in a seven-minute performance once an hour, seven days a week to tell the story of how the fabled civilization disappeared, and the 50,000-gallon saltwater aquarium surrounding the fountain is home to a diverse collection of ocean life.

Best Steak Deal in Town
You may not see it on the menu, but ask for the $6.95 strip loin steak dinner at Ellis Island.

Run away with the Circus
Circus Circus is home to the world's largest free permanent circus, highlighting the center stage of the Carnival Midway daily. Different acts perform roughly each half hour from 11am to midnight daily. Excalibur's medley of medieval performers and jugglers entertain the Court Jester's Stage in the Medieval Village (times vary).

Get up close to a Mermaid
Catch live Mermaids in action at the Silverton Casino Hotel aquarium's Mermaid Show. The 117,000-gallon reef aquarium with more than 4,000 tropical fish, stingrays and sharks features interactive stingray feedings and live Mermaids. Mermaid swims take place for 15 minutes at a time with breaks throughout the afternoon and evening.

Art Center
For the patron of the arts, ARIA Fine Art Collection features the works of acclaimed artists perfectly paired with the distinct architecture and design of City Center's structures, including ARIA and Vdara resorts as well as Crystals Shopping Centre.

Fremont Street Experience
The free Viva Vision light shows at Fremont Street Experience are a must-see in Las Vegas. The Viva Vision video screen is 1,500 feet long, 90 feet wide and suspended 90 feet above Fremont Street’s renowned pedestrian mall. Guests can enjoy a variety of light shows with dazzling, high-resolution imagery and state-of-the-art, 550,000-watt, concert-quality sound. The Viva Vision screen is made up of 12.5 million energy-efficient LED lamps, lasts around six minutes and runs every hour (usually between 6:00 p.m and 8:00 p.m., based upon the season).

Sign of the Times
Perhaps the best known - and free - attraction in Las Vegas is the fabled sign itself. The Welcome to Las Vegas sign is currently located just south of all the action on Las Vegas Boulevard, with convenient parking right inside the median. No trip to Vegas is complete without a pilgrimage to the sign!

Art Deco Demo
The Smith Center for the Performing Arts offers free tours providing insight into Downtown's distinguished cultural attraction. Guests can learn about the structure's art-deco architecture and design, as well as the unique works that are on display. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy in Symphony Park - a quiet, cultured afternoon in Vegas.
