On an upcoming trip, I am considering bringing my gaming bankroll in mostly travellers check form, instead of cash. I am an AAA member and I understand that they will issue travellers checks without a fee to members. Some questions I have about this. I know already from reading other posts that casino cages are willing to cash them. But my questions are: 1) Hassle? Easy to do? Just show ID, explain you want to cash them, sign, and get face value? Can I request cash or chips, or either? 2) Specifically for AAA, what forms of payment are accepted to buy them? I know I probably can't use a credit card (too bad, I would get mileage points with this). But would they take a personal check for purpose? I ask because I actually feel safer in Vegas (most places) than I do in my home city, and bringing cash to the AAA office defeats the purpose of this exercise, as I'm still cash-heavy. 3) Positive experiences doing this? Negative experiences? Any particular casino cages to avoid, or will all/most be OK for this? Thanks for any replies.
