Back in March (right after the Major League Baseball lockout ended) the St. Louis Cardinals sent out an email offering a great deal on tickets. Basically, tickets in the upper portion of the stadium were on sale for $6, and the team loaded them with $6 worth of "Cards Cash" (which is credit at any of the concession stands or stores).
Hubby Tony purchased three sets of tickets; one of them was for last night's game. It was a nice night to be outside-hot but not oppressive, with low humidity and a nice breeze. We went to dinner at a nearby restaurant, then walked over to the ballpark. We rode the escalator all the way to where it ended at the 300 level, then climbed a flight of stairs to our seats all the way at the top of the stadium.
A couple of innings into the game Tony went to get us some ice cream. Our tickets (along with the credits) were on our phones, so I gave him mine so he could redeem my credit. However, at the kiosk he had trouble finding my ticket app, the ice cream was melting, and he just ended up paying for my snack. The concessions don't take cash any more, so he charged it.
I was determined to take advantage of my credit, so later in the game I went on a hunt for something that would cost less than six dollars. I found out a bag of peanuts was $5.50, but after the cashier added the tax the total came to $6.11.
