    Smile Going away tonight...

    Now I know going to a real casino isn't considered to be very frugal, but between the two of us we have $570 in credits & coupons we can use. Some expire today at midnight and the others are redeemable after midnight...so we figured we'll get up there about 11/11:30. Plus, we can use our points to eat at no cost to us...so the goal for this adventure is to only use the credits they are giving us & our points.

    Hopefully, I will be able to turn the credits into cash and bring it home with me...and hopefully the real casino isn't as tight as the one we have here .

    Thank you for the good luck wishes!!! I'd like to win lots of money, but you don't go to the casino with the idea that you are going to win...casinos weren't built on winners . But, I am looking forward to a night out and since it's on their dime that'll make it even more enjoyable. If I can come home with anything, it'll still be an increase...

    I hope you've had a wonderful time, by the time you're reading this. Gripey and I love to gamble and try to be very frugal doing it. It's like any other form of entertainment. If you're gonna play, you're gonna pay . (but you don't have to overpay!) Let us know how you came out. I hope you hit a big jackpot on their dime, on the way out the door to go home

    As long as it is on their dime I guess it is okay. They are probably hoping you will dip into your own cash.
