1. Found the same coupons being handed out on the street
2. Unless you are traveling to different states & towns so you can use the coupons, its not worh the hassle.
3. Found that the hotels/casino's offered better deals and the same offers as in the book.
4. A few places would not accept the coupons.
Save your money, It's not worth the hassle to carry around the whole book just to save a few bucks.
|Rating: 1 Abuses...nonsense.
I used to love this book for its coupons. Somehow saving a few bucks on lunch made the gambling trip more of a bargain hunt.
Now, because of "abuses", you need to have the book present to use a coupon. The idea is annoying and certainly alters the sense of a fun outing.
What were the abuses anyway? Someone traded coupons with a neighbor, or handed them out at church? So what. They're coupons!
Keep your book.
|Rating: 5 New Coupon Procedure Not Well Thought Out
I get this book every year and find it to be a great source of savings. However, this years edition requires you when using the coupons to comply with a new condition printed on the coupon. It states: "Offer void if detached from book. This coupon should only be removed at the time of redemption." The author states in his remarks in the book as well as his remarks here on Amazon that this was done as a reult of abuses and counterfeiting of the coupons. I can understand this and have no problem with this. My problem is the fact that there are three coupons per page and the coupons do not have preforations to easily remove the coupon at the time of use. This is especially hastlesome if you need to use the middle coupon, as you usually end up ripping the top and bottom coupons trying to evenly remove the center coupon. A little common sense and forethought should have been used when designing the coupon section of the book......maybe next year's issue will come with a pair of mini scissors. Other than this years coupon 'preforation oversight' this book is well worth the money.
|Rating: 5 This book has it all!
Everything you need to know about casino gambling is contained in this fine book -- many informative articles about the best way to play all the games, excellent commentary by many of the world's leading gambling authors, complete discriptions of most every casino in the country, and over 140 coupons with a cash value of over $1,000! If buying this book on an annual basis isn't in your plans, you're making a big mistake!!
|Rating: 5 This book is great!
Sorry, but as the author of this book, I couldn't let Mr. Davis' comments go unanswered.
He wants to know what the abuses were? Well, the problem was that the coupons were being counterfeited. That's what happens when you have such great coupon offers in a book that sells for only $14.95
There are 147 coupons in the new 2004 edition and it has even better offers than were in last year's book. If you use just one of the 2-for-1 room offers you can easily save $50. If you use all of the matchplay coupons you can get more than $100 in FREE gambling money!
Of course, there's also great information from America's finest gaming writers on the best strategies for all casino games, plus maps and details on more than 600 U.S. casinos in 33 states.
The book is one-of-a-kind and truly a bargain. That would also explain why it's consistently ranked in the top 10% of all books sold on Amazon.
