Some bulk discounts are better than others

Strip entertainment packages promise to save you money, but you must be a smart shopper to make the most of these offers. The “3 for $54” deal, which MGM Resorts International launched in 2009, was recently expanded to include Adventuredome and CSI: The Experience. If you plan on seeing Bodies … the Exhibition, Adventuredome and CSI, the package will save you about $30, but if the Shark Reef, New York-New York roller coaster and Secret Garden are your choice, it’s cheaper to buy admission individually.

While MGM’s tickets are good for a year, Caesars Entertainment’s All Stage Pass challenges guests to see as many of the 20 participating shows in a 48-hour period as possible for $99. The latest addition to the package is the quirky variety show Absinthe, which has become a must-see since its April debut. By juggling afternoon and evening shows, it’s possible to catch four per day. If you have both dedication and free time, the All Stage Pass is the way to go.
