-- The $250 credit on RCL cruises is not worth being exposed to the stock for that reason.

Or you can buy the stock at one broker and simultanously short it at another. (Doesn't everybody have more than one broker?)

Or buy it the day that the monthly statement is generated and sell it the next day.

All you have to show the cruise line is a statement that shows you own 100 shares of their stock. All sorts of ways to play that game.

RCL's shareholder benefit sucks, BTW. They rejected giving it to us because "You already got a good bargain from your travel agent, so we are not going to honor your shareholder benefit."
