So you would agree that this isn't really that much different than redemptions. Judging by your response, you seem to believe this is worse because the deadline for redemptions is longer than this deadline. That may be true. However, the flip side is that with the box top program at least all of those cards end up going to collectors, right? IMO, that would seem preferable to UD doing whatever they want with the unredeemed cards (i.e. backdooring them).
