What I Learned About The $20 Trick

On vacation in San Diego last summer, my husband, two friends, and I decided to take a road trip to Las Vegas. We booked a room at the Luxor, and I crowdsourced recommendations for what to do.

A friend suggested that I try the $20 trick. I had no idea what it was, but the name alone intrigued me. It sounded like something you would do in Las Vegas, and even if it was a scam, it wasn’t a bank-breaking amount of money, nor did it seem like enough to get arrested over. So I Googled.
