I'm sure there will be 96 people that regret their purchase in promo #3 and 4 people that are thankfull they did make a purchase. I purchased quite a few slots in promo 2 and 1 slot in promo 4. I'd like to see some numbers soon to see if I have a decent shot or not and this will determine how many slot I buy in this promo. I'm curious how long is the 5000 gift card good for? Is it a use it once thing or can you spend it over a year or two as products come out that you want. Like I said before I just started collecting again and the last few weeks I've done really well with my hobby boxes and I'm getting addicted to buying them. Luckily I only collect Football and Baseball cause I'd be broke if I was buying Hockey and Basketball as well. It's cool that Blowout cards does these promotions, definately an incentive to buy from them. After the super bowl I will probably take a small break from buying cards to replenish my funds and to concentrate on my other expensive hobby, my 98 Mustang Cobra.
You're right, thats the way you have to think of #3.....as a lottery......buying a square (even though technically you're buying the product). I'm playing it safe this year and only buying hobby products I like and even then its a crap shoot (a gamble any time you buy a box of cards). Good luck with your slots......I have 2 squares in #1, 3 squares in #2, and 3 squares in #4 (not to mention my SB Promo hobby boxes.....(10) 2008 SPx FB and (18) 2008 EEE Baseball).
