I was hoping to stay in Vegas mode but alas real life has set in. Damn it all.
I got a free $10 gift card from American Express for getting a $200 prepaid card from them(I just rolled the free money). I was supposed to get a $25 gift card but since they didn't take the money out of my account for 12 says I didn't qualify. Hmmmmm, yes I called. I dealt with a lovely woman in India that could barely speak English. That didn't help my mood. The kicker is that I gave them my checking account number so they could withdraw funds, they just didn't do it in a timely manner. So I got shorted-fine its free money but still......
