    Just so you are aware, in case you do find a donor, without a book in hand, the coupons are virtually worthless. You are supposed to remove the coupon from a book in front of an employee. Without a book, they can refuse to take your coupon.

    This might be a situation where "play dumb" works in your favor ("Honey, I TOLD you we needed to have the book". "I know, dear, but I was afraid to lose it so I just brought the coupon we needed tonight"......etc).

    At least if you had a book the "fake tear" removal of the coupon from the book would probably work.

    Good luck!

    You can order then pick up the LVA book in person in town, I believe.

    The ACG is available from Amazon, delivered in a couple days.

    I know it stipulates that, but I've never carried the book with me. The coupons and card have always sufficed and the card is rarely asked for.

    Two weeks - plenty of time to order an ACG from Amazon and/or join the LVA and get your book shipped from them!

    Also ACG now has a coupon only version so you don't have to shlep around that huge heavy book. I have only seen the large version on Amazon but haven't looked lately. The coupon only version can be ordered from americancasinoguide.com and I believe comes by media mail from Florida unless you upgrade shipping.

    Garrman, my dear, you are thinking of the ACG. The coupons the OP seeks are in the MRB from Las Vegas Advisor.

    The only area in Ellis that we have not shown the lva book has been at the bar. They have't checked our player card or anything at the bar. Great coupon(s) to have with having those 3 rounds of drinks for two people for free :)

    Thanks for all the replies ....Yes I know we can order and pick up but the reason I was asking and making comment about paying back is in the past we have order the LVA subcription/book for years but this year we are getting ours through the Comp City Games and don't have enough points to cash in to get one for our trip in less than two weeks ...but thanks any way. :)
