Default carnival casino and sign and sail card

A life lesson learned.... be sure to use your sign and sail card in the slot machines. This is NOT a charge card and you are not accruing any charges on your card. What you are accumulating are points towards a credit just like a rewards card from Staples. What I liked best after thinking all these people were high rollers is the telephone cord thingy they attach to your card. I didn't mislay my sign and sail card once this past cruise!

The casino is tightening up the points they give out. I went in January and I spent $700-800 in the casino and ended up with an extra $30 in credits for the points. Now, I went in September and spent $900 ($200 of that in $1 machines) and I only got $10 in credits from the points. I should have gotten upwads of $50 or more, but no. I played both quarter and dollar machines and I got the same points for both, when the dollar should have been more points....

I had fun in the casino, alas, I don't mind donating when I have fun....

Does anyone else collect the stretching cords you get?..I do....

I always wondered how those cards worked when seeing them while walking through the casino. Bob

You can get $ credited to use on the machine that is added to your bill. There is no fee to do this.
