Also, $200 can get you almost anything you'd want. For me, I collect baseball so I'm happy to get a Triple Threads Box. At $150 that's great. At $200, I can just go buy it and not risk any disappointment. Sure I'm missing out on a Five Star box or one of the awesome case spots, but I also avoid getting a box of 2003-04 Basketball.
I agree, you could just purchase what you want and be happy (or disappointed based on how the break goes, lol), but this promotion is for those of us who love to gamble. Not only that, you at least get something in return. I broke even on the first Cyber Monday promo I entered (Panini Prime Hockey Box) and lost on the second (2011 Bowman Platinum BB Box, but hit a nice AGon/Crawford Dual auto #1/10). I like the "Chance" to hit one of the high end boxes or cases and if I lose out and get stuck with a $75 box, well, that was the gamble. Sure, it'll hurt a little to lose that much, but at least I get a box to crack, and who knows, maybe I'll get a chance to choose my own case! So, I am IN!!
I do agree that I would rather have a $500 Giftcard than the Wii, but I sure wouldn't complain if that was my prize for $199.99!
