I came across the Thunderbird Resorts-Rizal deal on Ensogo.com.ph and I couldn't help but feel that the the original value at P12,500 is quite pricey. It may be an exact computation, but the inclusion of the P600 worth casino match bet coupons does not do the deal any good. I've been in another branch of Thunderbird already and once you're there, you need to know that you won't be able to use that as it is. You will need to cough up more money to be able to play at least one of the games in the casino. That's gambling. It takes risking your money, even for a one-night experience of it.

I'm not saying that the deal price of P6,285 is bogus. For that amount you can already experience the Thunderbird Resorts chain of hotel luxury including an expensive breakfast for two (I can attest to the expensive breakfast so this is worth it), plus be able to watch Karylle and Christian Bautista sing songs live (a real treat aside from just staying inside your hotel room). What I'm saying is that P12,500 is too hefty an original price, at least for the hotel chain's Rizal branch.
