Our largest section on Las Vegas deals (including free buffets) is our Special Vegas Buffet Deals page. The following is information on general tips and a handful of current free buffet ‘specials’.
There are a number of Vegas buffets and restaurants who offer great value for money all the time. Some of them are so cheap that you may not care about a free entry at all, such as the cheap 24-hour ‘diners’ or the cheap breakfast some 24 Vegas restaurants have; the choices are endless. We are always on the lookout for the best deal and that must include edible and even good food, of course (no pointing eating cheap if it makes you sick!)
♦ 2-for-1 buffets and 50% off. If you walk around the Harrah’s area all the way down to Flamingo, you will often (during low season) find people distributing 50 per cent off or 2 for 1 buffets offers; you may find them also outside the Paris or Bally’s (we were told by several people we met at buffets) but we found them in the area between Harrah’s and the Linq (where the old Quad and, before that, Imperial Palace stood). Those buffet offers were for the Flamingo buffet. By all means, if you need to eat something quickly, it’s a good buffet deal for the Strip; however, given that the Flamingo buffet is not a good buffet in our opinion, you may want to skip it altogether or keep it for when you just want a bite and don’t wish to spend anything beyond a handful of dollars. Some people we met at the Paris buffet said that they were given a set of 2-for-1 buffet coupons by timeshare presentations reps without even having to attend, but only chatting with them for a few minutes. I would recommend trying it, whilst however being very careful not to get sucked into what they are selling (timeshare and similar): just chat with them briefly, get the buffet coupons and leave.
♦ Free Buffets at the Silverton resort and the M Resort (the latter runs the same type of promotion as the former).
♦ Gold Coast Seafood buffet special. Currently This Vegas hotel and casino has been offering a seafood buffet special every Friday from 4pm-9pm. It’s either free or largely discounted: it’s for all players card holders (the card is called B Connected, and you can sign up for free on the spot): Emerald card holders can enjoy this seafood buffet special for free, Sapphire card holders receive 2 for 1 and Ruby card holders (pretty much anybody who has just signed up and not accumulated any significant number of points) receive 50% off after earning 10 points (which is very easy, all you have to do is play very little at their casino whilst using their B Connected card).
at this point it’s fair to highlight that, if you are in the Rio/Gold Coast area, you are much better off eating at the good yet very affordable Palms buffet (if you click on the underlined words you will go to our page dedicated to this truly delicious and truly affordable buffet.
