This year it was so easy to collect hubby’s costume, which we did during the week, however collecting my costume on Carnival Saturday was another story. I am hoping the fact that costume collection is slated to end on Carnival Friday , February 1st as per the emails from TRIBE that Carnival Saturday might be reserved for persons who could not collect on the days set aside for each section and that frontline masqueraders will be able to collect on a day during the week as well. Of course I am hoping this so that it will save me a trip to the mas camp today! The other thing is that I can stay at home and pay the balance via credit card BUT then there is that SENVIA credit card fee!
The incentive to pay off early, apart from the speedy collection, is the added prize of wining your costume free, however I highly doubt that I would win, I mean would it not look very suspect if I win a free costume? When I sold my costume this year and got into Sailor the Anti-Saucy Crew took the position that TRIBE did me a favor to shut me up (still laughing at this one) so you could imagine the uproar if Saucy wins her costume free!
Anyway I still have a few more hours to decide whether or not I am going to pay off my costume today, but how many of you have decided on the fast track route for 2008.. .or not to fast track?
EDITED TO ADD:
After all this contemplation I bit the bullet and paid off for my costume!! Thanks for all the comments, you guys made me realise that it is easier to just have this over and done with. Now it's MY costume paid in full! lol
