I would just leave them at home, why would you want to lug around the extra weight? You really aren't earning much one $1,000 in coins to make it worth taking on a trip with you. I would use the search feature on the website "coins" and "casino" should pop up a few posts.

I took about $200 with me to Kauai. Everyone loved them. At the Farmer's markets and the restaurant people bought extra. Just left them in the bottom of my carry-on-no problem

I've moved a couple K across state lines myself

Biggest thing when I carry a box of 250 or 500 is I remove them from the bag and put them in a separate tray, as an x-ray of them probably is a little odd... when left in the bag they always re-screen (for larger quantities). Very fun to use at Farmers Markets and restaurants that are Cash Only

2010 Native Americans seem to be shipping in 7 days.
Presidents may take longer.

What?
PITA= Pain In The A**, also a flat bread that you can stuff with falafel or meat, vegetables, and a cucumber-esque sauce with spices, known as tziziki (various spellings), and often served with pomme frites.

I was hinting that it has been a long, drawn-out process that ties up equity for a not-insignificant amount of time.

I purchase GC's to my gas/grocery stores when I have to hit the threshold(s).

Dammit, first canceled order.

I hit my box limit exactly and now no more coins. And I had such a nice routine going to spread the love across all my local Chase branches without too frequent visits. I guess it's time to start playing tricks to keep em coming...

Must. Have. Coins.

I am back after a while and obviously out of touch with this thread. I was wondering if starwood amex is still useful for ordering. I am having a hard time with my searches. Any update or clues will be appreciated.
