    I have a 4Q offer for March 1-31 that includes $150 in free play. The trouble is we are departing on March 1st and the limo pickup is at 6:15 AM.

    $150 is a lot of money to me, but I'm not sure I can drag my ass out of bed at 4 AM at MSS, walk over to 4Q to use it, then take my wife to breakfast before we catch the plane.

    Start of day at 4Q is 2 AM according to the person I spoke with at the Players Club.

    I'm too old to pull an all nighter, but the thought of trying to get to bed by 11 or midnight on our last night sucks.

    I know, there are worse problems to have. I'm still debating it with myself. I'm not a morning person. So maybe I'll just offer it to my wife. She sleeps like crap in Vegas anyway. We pool our money, so it's just semantics.

    $150 is a lot and I know if it were me I'd either stay up until 2:30am or wake up early enough to convert it before breakfast. However I'd also understand not wanting to lose out on sleep (definately wouldn't go to bed early because of it) and I don't know much about comps but maybe if you don't use it in March it or a portion of it may roll over in to the next offers, I don't really know.

    If it were me, my preference would be to stay up until 2:30am and use it.

    I would stay up to use it, order room service for breakfast and sleep on the plane.

    Only one thing you can do then, make the wife go play it while you sleep!

    Joe: challenge the limo driver for a better tip. Get them to pick you up at valet at 4Q with the wife in the limo
    while you play the big $'s into next trip's bankroll. Just set clock back 45 minutes. Good luck either way. (Maybe the four royals you hit will make the free play incidental.)

    If an extra night won't happen, what about a later flight? Provided the cost to change flights doesn't outweigh the expected return on the free play, of course.

    Gave it a look for the hell of it. Must be too soon to departure date. The one-way fare is now $535 pp, plus we wouldn't get back home until after dark. The older I get, the more I hate driving at night.

    But, I did look. Thanks for the idea.
