    With the current interest rates, maybe you could earn what that postage stamp would have cost in interest over that 30 days and get to pocket it :eek:

    That's the smart play, IMO :)

    If you were willing to risk it, you could send the envelope back without postage. If the USPS actually delivers it to the destination, it will show up “postage due” before they can claim it.

    I probably will never encounter this issue, but I would presume they can debit your account directly rather than sending them a check?

    Look, I was more "making a statement" about changes at CET than actually making a complaint. Yes, $0.50 or more, in the grand scheme of things is really nothing. I've already voted with my feet.

    I will stop at 15,000 TC this year, just to keep the "no resort fees". One or two more 5X TC bonus weekends should do it . . . .

    In bartender school, we learned a shot is 1.5oz, so their 0.75oz pours at Linq are actually just 50% of a shot as I know it.

    Ahh, now this is the true advantage play move... genius...

    Hmm, I guess not. All I see is the option for email subscribing or unsubscribing. No physical mail option at all.

    I used to work a bar where shots were measured as one ounce and it was measured through a pourer that kept track of everything. My first job as a bartender was a dive bar where the owner told me the size of the shot depends on how much the customer tips. The second bar is still around.

    Anything less than a sloppy 2 ounces is not a full shot, I don't care what anyone says... :drunk:

    I worked at a bar where we used a jigger, and the 1oz size was only considered a shot during the cheap drink specials. Top shelf or no special going on? Full 1.5oz jigger. But we also had measuring spouts, and some of the more popular bottles had 1oz spouts on em. We had 1.5 on the good stuff and if someone ordered them neat they got 2 pours of the 1.5 spout, but they were priced accordingly. 3 pours if they tripped well last time!

    Well, I just got the statement for my "outstanding" marker at Planet Hollywood. The good news is that it was a postage paid return envelope. The bad news is that the check paying it off had already cleared!

    I've never gotten a payment envelope. Maybe because I go directly to the cashier to take out a LOC. They then deposit the "checks"they get paid like I was
    sending a check to pay a bill.

    It depends on what you arrangement with the casino is. It differs, even between the Nevada casinos and new Orleans.

    The Nevada casinos typically send a reminder, Harrahs New Orleans automatically withdraws the money 30 days after taking it out. I have never had a line at AC, but what you're describing is what New Orleans does.

    Me too. I have asked to not receive snail mail a few times over the years, but it always starts up again after a pause.

    In addition to the drink vouchers, do we still get complimentary drinks for play? Going soon, first time since covid.

    Seems like they don’t really keep up with their properties anymore.
