Default Has anyone done this?

Okay, I'm sure I'm not the first, but I've never seen this particular idea on here.

Okay for those who have a cash account. This is what I did.
Assuming you have cash leftover on your s&s card, you can go to the casino on the last night, transfer your funds to your casino card, then take your casino card to the cashier and they will give you back cash.

We had about $100 leftover and instead of trying wait in a long line at the pursers desk or waiting to take to the bank ( we need the money for the rest of our trip). We just withdrew everything except about $5 don't ask me why $5.
Anyway it worked, we cashed out and had cash on hand when we left.

Thanks everyone, I can't believe I didn't think about it sooner. I guess it's because this is the first time I paid in cash.
Or it's because I never had any money left on my Casino account leftover.
