I hope we both get killer suites!

Basically when you check in you have to give your ID and CC -- in between the ID and CC, you put a $20/$50 bill and say, "Are there any complentary upgrades available? " with a nice smile on your face.
One of a few things will happen:
a) the clerk will quietly pocket the money and offer you the upgrade
the clerk will offer you the upgrade and then give you back your money. At this point, say, "that's for you"
c) the clerk will give back the money and not give you the upgrade.
There's even a website that tracks the success/failure of the "20$ trick" - http://www.thetwentydollartrick.com/
Tips: expect to be bumped up 1 room class, maybe 2. Don't expect to book the super saver room rate and get upgraded to the prez suite
I'm definitely trying it in Mexico

Would surely be nice to have an upgrade though. Maybe I'll look into this option now and see if I can get a similar steal of a deal.
