I'm trying to "read the fine print" on the drink tickets and it looks like they are good for drinks up to $5.75? Is that accurate? Would I be able to hand them a ticket for the frou-frou drink of the day?

Thanks in advance!

Drinks not to exceed $4.25.

You will not save any money. You have a greater chance of loosing money. Just use your Sail & sign card.

If you want to know more, search on drink coupons on this board... you will find this subject debated to death.

If you didn't buy the plastic glass, yes. On the other question you asked, you'd probably be better off, moneywise, using your S&S for drinks...as most cost less than what an individual drink ticket costs

I have used the coupons on drinks that exceed the value, but I only use them with a bartender that I have taken care of very nicely Generally, if you are going to be drinking most beers, you will lose money... and on many frozen drinks... they are more for prepaying your S&S account, they are very helpful if you want to do that, just make sure you use them on higher priced drinks and you don't lose money. The gratuity is included in the drink coupon.
