Housekeeping or $5: Which Would You Choose?

You return to your hotel room for the night and find a card in the door jamb with the following printed on it:

Get $5 cash – Simply choose to decline housekeeping service today. Bring this card to the front desk by noon, leave the Privacy Please sign outside the door, and claim your $5 cash or a $5 credit to your account.

For me, it would depend on the circumstances, as well as the length of my stay. For example, if I arrived in the hotel room late the night before and left the room early in the morning — barely using the room — I might be inclined to pocket an extra $5.00 and skip housekeeping for that night.

What would you decide to do, and why?
