I live in Pittsburgh and we are gong to St. Louis ONLY because of this promotion. If we were to drive to st. louis and hit the 3 harrahs locations and drive directly home we would spend $210 in gas and approx 28 hours. I already had the vegas one and to drive to atlantic city and chester it would cost $100 and 12 hours. 6 locations for $310 to get $1200 in comps. Its worth it to me but it may not be to others.
However we have made this a reason to make a nice weekend trip. We are swinging down through Louisville to go to Churchill Downs and Louisville Slugger tours, then to st louis to see the arch and the Brewmaster beer tour at Budweiser. I also have a casino chip collection so I will be able to stop at 10 casinos that I have never been too. We do not plan on gambling at all during this trip other than required at Harrahs. We are staying in 2 hotels, food, tours, and small BR for chips and harrahs and we will do this entire weekend for under $600. Essentially we are going to do this trip for free once we get the harrahs points for the three casinos we are hitting up.
Plus we would have eaten anyways so that is not an extra expense and I am sure we would have done something local such as a movie or bar so we would have spent money there too.
