Try to guess how much this nice, big bottle of Fiji water is? Ready? It’s $18 But maybe it’s water all the way from Fiji. Ok, Let’s try another one How about this nice refreshing can of coke
found anywhere in the world. Ready? It’s $8 Oh, Are you hungry? How about this cute small box of jumbo cashews. It’ll be $17 Yes, you heard it right. Jumbo cashews, not jumbo prawns No, I’m not from the future, but I am here to save your wallet These are the prices right now at MGM owned
hotels in Las Vegas! It’s from that one area in your hotel room
you don’t get near. The Golden Idol from Indiana Jones And for some of us, We made the mistake of NOT bringing our own
water and waking up in the middle of the night feeling dry. We all know it’s a ripoff, but did you know
it was THIS bad? I mean, here How about this Milk Chocolate Peanut Candy. The picture clearly looks like they just put
M&Ms in there. So 4oz of it should be around $2. What? They renamed M&M’s peanut to Milk Chocolate
Peanut Candy and they’re asking for $13. 4oz of Gummi Bears for $12
Amazon has a 5lb bag for the same price To put it into perspective, if this was a
4oz gummi bear, this is what a 5lb gummi bear would look like. Orange Juice for $9
That must be one of those freshly squeezed ones I don’t drink, but for anyone that knows
their alcohol Jack Daniel’s Whiskey 50ml retails for $3,
selling for $13 Grey Goose Vodka 375ml retails for $17, selling
for $50 I did a quick estimate
If you take everything from the minibar, you will pay $763
If you picked everything up at CVS, you would’ve saved over $500+ Everything is on a sensor. MGM apparently gives you 60 seconds to put
it back, but I just wouldn’t touch it. They don’t even make the prices easy to
see. At Bellagio, you have to start your TV and
find the mini bar pricing through the menu Our TV didn’t even work half the time To add insult to injury, they charge you for
storing anything in their fridge That’s right.. That little space you see, you better not
put anything in there because that’s going to be… $50. Please just stay away from the minibars at
MGM properties. Ok, here are some big juicy watermelon tips
for you to solve this problem By the way, I’m all about saving money so
please subscribe to my channel if you want to see more videos like this. The first day when you get there, enjoy your
day, gamble, eat, watch a show but before you head back to your hotel, make a CVS or
Walgreens stop. They are located everywhere around the strip
and they are insanely crowded. It’s like a black friday sale going on in
there everyday which it kind of is compared to our hotel minibar. Buy a few bottles of water and some food. Even if you don’t plan to eat in your room. Trust me, it’ll come in handy. If you don’t want to walk to a convenience
store, there are people trying to sell water on the strip for a dollar. You won’t miss them, they’re usually on
or under the bridge yelling “ice cold water” over and over and over. If you don’t want to leave your hotel, just
sit at a slot machine and a waitress will come around asking if you want anything. You can ask for water and they’ll give you
this tiny hotel branded water. If you’re at a nicer hotel, you can request
Fiji water. You should tip the waitress $1 for bringing
the water to you. Ok, the last solution I don’t like but it’s
better than your minibar, is to go to the hotel’s gift shop. They have water for half the price of your
minibar which is still a big rip off. About keeping your food cool without being
charged $50 you can request a mini-fridge for a daily
fee. But I would either buy a styrofoam cooler
or just fill up your sink with the free ice. That’s it! Plan ahead and stay away from that minibar! By the way, is minibar one word or two words? Ocean’s 11 and MGM says it’s two words But the dictionary shows it as one. Anyways Thank you for watching! If you would like more money saving tips,
