I know you all hate SPIRIT but by flying with them, show your boarding pass at The D within 24 hour and get a $50 match play.

DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

So how many people are going to be standing outside the Spirit gates at McCarran offering $5 for used boarding passes?

Or does the boarding pass have to have your name on it?

I'm sure it'll have to match. I want able to read the bottom of the ad. Someone will try it though, I'm certain.

The boarding pass has to have your name on it.

You receive the match play as 2 $25 match play chips. Usable for one bet only.

And before some cheapskate asks, no you can't bet on red/black or pass/don't simultaneously.

LOL

When I first started playing stuff like this. If I had $25 or more. I would have whomever I was with (usually a date) bet her match play on odd/even and I would do opposite with mine. I wouldn't do it if the pit boss was around . Usually they were very relaxed about it, I usually had more than a few to run. Never really had a problem running multiples or betting this way. I may have been yelled at once or twice

Nowadays I wouldn't suggest attempting it and wouldn't want to do it.

I remember Boulder Station had easily obtained $5 or $10 MP's. The pit boss let me run about 70 straight on BJ. He said, "you earned them all, you can play them all" That was fun.

I am surprised by that because they send me free play chips and they are play until you lose.

Nope, the spirit promo ones are definitely match play. However, the dealer screwed up and paid us $75 when we bet $25+$25 match chip and won on 5/6 decisions.

On a somewhat tangential note, I'd say 75% of the time when I use a mailer coupon or match play chip or somesuch the dealer looks at me like I just placed a fried egg on the table. Then he calls over the floor that about 30% of the time looks just as bewildered. Do these places not educate their dealers and floor about current promotions and the kind of coupons that might show up at their table?

We didn't have time to do this last month but I wish we would have. Our tickets were only 23 each way so this would have made the flight free.

Thanks for the tip! I usually do fly spirit there actually... Cheap flight and I only ever really need 1 "personal item" of my backpack. So yay, "free-ish" money.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
