Q&A: How should I try the $20 dollar trick?

Question by Ms. Keller: How should I try the dollar trick?
We booked a prestige luxury suite at Palazzo, then through their “suite-est rate” program got it upgraded to a prestige luxury view suite. Do you think I should ask for a complimentary upgrade or a complimentary upgrade to prestige fortuna view suite?
Does that seem out of the question? It’s the next suite up with a king size bed.

Let me know what you think. Also this trip is for my 21st birthday (2 weeks after)

Also, should I stick to $ 20? Maybe $ 50 or $ 100?

Please only answer if you know about this trick and hopefully have experience
I have read online where upgrades have been done. It is unnecessary to provide answers stating that it can only be done by managers

From what I’ve heard from the Palazzo, it’s hard to get a fortuna suite. But depending on how many days you’re going for, I’d say $ 50 would be better for the Palazzo. Also, make sure you let them know this is for your birthday, they sometimes make exceptions for specials occasions. I mean worst case scenario, they say no and give you back your $ 50.

Here’s a few more accounts of the $ 20 trick.
