    Milf…CET…Cosmo…Trop…Boyd…GN…TI…Wynncore…V/P…my “local” casino…

    The days that I don’t get at least two or three pieces of mail from one of these places are the anomalies! I’ve gotta assume most of you guys are the same way.

    I just know my postman (postwoman actually) is waiting to pull up someday to see a foreclosure sign in front of my house and someone auctioning off all my personal property. :evillaugh

    I've had the same thought. Beside Vegas, we have 3 local casinos that we get mail from too.

    I have had the same thought! ROFL

    I have also wondered what the garbage men and people walking by my house think when I clean out my bar every other year or so and throw away many bottles of alcohol and fill up the recycling bins. :rolleyes2:

    I know what mine thinks.
    He is a Vegas regular too! Whenever I do actually run into him, we always talk Vegas, and wonder who's is getting the better deals!

    I would think the carriers would be extremely pleased to have mail to deliver. I for one still like to have those mailed advertisements versus going on the internet to locate the bargains.

    Rarely get any via the mail. Mostly e-mail.
    Have had the mail person comment about other items though. :wink2:

    The old time Mail Carriers knew EVERYTHING

    Esp. before email ,they knew where you worked ,banked,shopped,went to school , church ,who was in trouble with the law and credit co's,pretty much everything.
    A Postmaster buddy of mine told me this a few years ago,personally I go back to when I was a little kid and we had two deliveries a day.The Carrier was always in full uniform and us kids adressed him as Mr.Joe.Times do change,Joe saw us all grow up ,he always took a minute to say hello and see how we were doing.

    I suspect our old mailman was definitely a gambler - I used to have subscription to Casino Player magazine and it always seemed like the issues came erratically at best - and on more than one occasion mail I'd gotten from casinos appeared to already have been opened - but ever since we got a new mailman, it has never happened again.

    How do you get the ad's/offers/promotions by mail? I have never got anything in the actual mail. Just emails.

    I get email offers and promotions every day from CET and mlife.

    I would actually like to get some real physical media from them in the real mail. Is there actually a way to sign up for mail offers rather than email?

    For CET Total rewards, log into your account, profile, contact preferences and you can change to direct mail. Imagine other clubs have something similar

    Between Casino Player, Slot Player, Vegas magazine and all the offers from there and the local Indian casinos, I'm sure what our mail carrier thinks of us! I don't think more than a couple of days go by without something gambling related landing in the mailbox.

    I am thinking about installing a pend-a-flex filing system next to our mailbox so he can sort things out for us.

    (by the way, this is one reason we stopped having a neighbor collect our mail - LOL)

    Thanks!! That was easy to change on the Totel Rewards site. Now lets see if the mail starts rolling in... Heh!

    I tried to do the same thing on mlife but it's not as easy.
    Does anyone know how to select a preference to receive mlife promotions by actual mail?

    Holy cow I never thought about that! We get something, normally more than one, almost everyday. Normal mail is in a white envelope, these things are always purple, red, or some other attention getting color and larger than normal mail. I weed through the pile every 10 days or so but the pile is always over 2 inches. I just told my wife about this and she laughed her ass off. I am checking us in to an intervention program tomorrow!

    Ok, maybe not, I'll plan our next gambling trip instead.
