    Just got back from Vegas and will be writing up a trip report, but wanted to report on something unusual.....or at least I'd never seen it before.

    I flew United on Thursday morning (first flight of the day) and as we are descending into LAS, the flight attendants come by and give everyone a purple "deck of cards". Although, it's about half the width of a full deck. Inside was a container of mints and then 6 playing cards.

    The playing cards were:
    2 for 1 at Wicked Spoon
    Recipe for a drink called a Nikita
    $25 in free play
    A complimentary margarita at China Poblana or Cava Sangria at Jaleo (2 for 1 again)
    Book 3 nights for the price of 2
    2 tickets for the price of 1 to see the "Set Your Life to Music" series

    I asked the flight attendants if she had any extra and got three extra books. I gave one to my Aria host (she likes to see the marketing offers) and then one to Bresnan who was in Vegas when I was.

    Pretty cool! :thumbsup:

    I love those Margaritas at China Poblana.


    Hope the STP treated you a lot better than it did me last week!

    I'm starting to hate STP and double STP (my favorite vice) almost as much as that b**** Cleopatra 2...... It should be illegal to be dealt a pair of aces and get a STP of 3X and a DSTP of 8X and end up with just a pair of aces. :eek:

    I had a good trip though and I'm writing it up now. Hit 2's with a kicker on TDB and a few other nice photos. :)

    Was this just something that United is doing? I'd love it just for the FP!

    Bresnan flew Southwest out of Houston the same day I did and didn't get the freebies, so I don't know if it's just a United thing or not.

    It's an interesting marketing technique and I am glad I asked for a couple of extras!

    Thanks for the coupons Sandy! My friend Lisa and I went over to Cosmo and got a couple of those Margaritas at China Poblano - very salty - but good! While we were there, Lisa got her first ever handpay - $1500. :woot:
