just my opinion.
Clearly states on the receipt to inspect all items before opening. That gets them off the hook for everything. So I didn't feel they needed to do anything. I'm glad they did, but it wasn't necessary.

Even if they messed up and opened it without double checking the year on the box, the customer is not obligated to pay $60 for the box of 2011 when they sell for $36. It would be the same case regarding the video game. If you ordered online and paid say $60 for the new version of the game, but they accidently shipped you the old version which sells for $35, even if you opened it and they wouldnt take it back the least they should do is refund you the difference in price. Why should someone not be expected to get a refund for the difference in price when the item they received is $25 cheaper in the first place? As one other poster said, the minimum blowout should do is refund you the difference in the box prices which they did with no problems. Obviously they could have given more if they wanted to, but they arent obligated necessarily to do so
States on the receipt to inspect everything before opening. What happens if someone pulls terrible cards from their box, goes to their lcs and buys the same product with a different year, then complains they didn't get their advertised merchandise. There are some very dishonest people out there, so they have to protect themselves. Like I said, I wasn't anticipating anything, nor was I asking for anything. I just wanted them to be aware of the mistake, so it doesn't happen to anybody else. They handled it professionally.

Hats off to your post. 99.9% of the time customers blast a company and rarely do they ever give praise.

I honestly was expecting this to be a nasty post from the Thread title.

My 2-cents, which is meaningless, and as I am new here and to collecting, it also seems like Blowout handled it well too.
Yep, buncha good dudes on blowout

Sure Blowout made a mistake, but they handled it in a way that made the customer happy. That is a definition of customer service.
