In today’s R-J you can find the August edition of “My Station,” the glossy 23-page magazine full of information about and coupons for all the Station casinos. There are no longer any all-Station coupons; each property has a page of coupons specific for only its own casino. Although there are coupons for food, drink, and entertainment items, the most valuable ones are an up-to-$25 matchplay for table-game even bets and 5x points.
These coupons are not as valuable as they were during the last two months. Besides the fact that each is property-specific, they have done a better job clarifying the details, especially whether you can print them off the Internet. You can’t. The fine print on the matchplay states: “Reproduction or copying of this coupon is strictly prohibited.” The 5x points is “available any day of your choice in the month of August” and is “valid any one calendar day.” To activate the 5x bonus, you must put your name and Boarding Pass number on the coupon and turn it in at the Rewards center.
If you are from out of town and can’t pick up today’s paper and get this magazine, you might ask for a copy at the players club. Last month they had copies they would give out – perhaps they will continue that practice in August? Be sure you read the fine print on each coupon. For example, to use the Red Rock 30% spa discount, you must show a Nevada driver’s license.
For a household that has more than one gambler, you might want to buy extra papers today to get more magazines. I might send Brad dumpster diving tonight to look for the extra copy we need. In fact I might even go with him – people throw away some really good stuff in our condo complex!!!
