Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal is offering a new kind of shopping spree. One lucky winner will get $25,000 to spend on plastic surgery. Reaching for humor, the Taj announced that its "Nip, Tuck and Lift" sweepstakes will "change the face" of casino promotions. The winner can get lyposuction, a facelift — or take the cash instead.

DAVID GREENE, Host:

Good morning. I'm David Greene.

An Atlantic City casino is offering a new kind of shopping spree. One lucky winner at the Trump Taj Mahal will get $25,000 to spend on plastic surgery. Reaching for humor, the Taj announced its "Nip, Tuck and Lift" sweepstakes will "change the face" of casino promotions. The winner can get lyposuction, a facelift, whatever, as long as the price is under 25K. Or you can take the cash, if you're not interested in a new nose.

It's MORNING EDITION.
