Atlantic City Hacks

I live in NYC and I have never been to Atlantic City, though an AC-bound jitney service stops in my neighborhood. I've heard about all sorts of insane deals that hotels and casinos roll out to lure customers; what's the best/cheapest way to take advantage of this in the next couple of months? I'd like to travel to AC with a partner and stay a couple days, paying for as little as humanly possible. Caveat: I'm only willing to do a little cheap, incidental gambling; mostly I'd like to do my own thing once I'm there.
