How does a free night’s stay at a resort sound? If you’re a U.S. veteran, you are eligible for one free night a month at the Soaring Eagle Resort in Mount Pleasant, MI.
The best way to ensure you snag a room for a Saturday night is to call at 12:01 a.m. on the first of the month. Tell them you would like to book a Hero Room. Before you check in to the hotel, you need to join the Hero Program at the service desk of the casino. All you need to join is a copy of your DD-214. That’s all it takes to become and instant Hero.
Heroes also receive $20 in match play money once a month as well as discounts on food.
Gambling isn’t your thing? That’s fine. This resort is like a cruise ship on land. There is a spa, salon, various restaurants, an indoor pool, and outdoor hot tubs. It’s a great way to spend a winter weekend.
Here is a link to the Hero Program.
Update: The last time I called to book my free room, I was told that it is now limited to the birth month of the veteran only.
