I show the average at $201.28 so, between our fuzzy math, close enough. Here's the breakdown:

Santa Claus ($537+)
Ho, Ho, Ho! Triple your money or better: 14 chances, 9%

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer ($358 - $536)
Merry Christmas! Double your money or better: 6, 4%

Yukon Cornelius ($174 - $357)
Silver and Gold! Money Back: 20, 13%

Professor Hinkle ($100 - $173)
Time to write "I am very sorry for what I did to Frosty" a hundred zillion times: 42, 28%

Heat Miser ($79 - $99.95)
Whatever you touch melts in your clutch: 50, 33%

The Grinch (<$79)
$100 loss! Looks like coal this year: 18, 12%

Overall, this one looks like high risk, high reward. About 1/4 will feel pretty good and about 1/2 will feel pretty bummed. With an improved price point, this one is already better than the previous promotion at $179 for $30,000 in product. I think adding 5 or 6 $100 gift cards to the items in the Heat Miser category would bump the Yukon category up about 5% making this a pretty solid deal without much additional burden to Blowoutcards. It's also missing the BOOM factor that a $1,000 gift card adds as well. On balance, it's "ok" and close to being "good".
you are awesome for doing this. thank you very much!
It's like deja vu all over again.
