  1. There’s also a holiday special on CKP – get a $20 card when you buy a $100 gift card. I guess in essence it’s the same thing, but you can have mailed to you (or someone else).

    Do you know if the Costco cards are good at the Mirage Las Vegas location? (the holiday one is not) What are the restrictions?
