Amusing. $200 in mileage back for a $295 purchase. Reminds me of some 
ol passplus boondoggles! :-)

Considering it... reax?


PS. Of course, that's only 2 RCC passes, and they want $50 (!) per 
visit to Arrivals (and then only in certain cities). But as the old saw 
goes, "use it just once and..."  On the other hand, it ONLY works with 
published fares, not contract/corporate "full-fares". And I wonder if 
they make it non-upgradeable, too...?
