Would you ever borrow money to be able to go to Vegas? I have enough money saved for airfare, hotel, and car rental and about 25% of what I need for gambling. Our credit is bad and I applied for a personal loan of $1000 for one year at 35% interest and was approved. Meanwhile my wife wants to go on a 4 day casino trip at a resort 100 miles from my house with her girlfriend a week before I plan to go to Vegas. So I had the bright idea to tell my wife why doesn't she borrow $1000 for her trip too. She agreed but the loan company that approved my loan would not approve $2000. So I looked at another loan company and got approval for $2000 at 35% for a 3 yr loan.I signed for it and received a check of 2 grand then I looked at the terms of the loan and realized if we made minimum payments through the 3 year loan we would be paying almost 5 grand with the interest on this loan. Now I'm having second thoughts of going to Vegas. If we can pay this loan off in one year we would only be paying $350 interest with no penalty . If we both break even then no problem but if we both lose a grand apiece we are stuck paying this off in 3 years. Do you ever make bad financial decisions to be able to go to Vegas?
