hey guys/gals,
I'm looking for some feedback on this idea I have. I'm sure sales are going to slow some right now with the economy, the holidays and such, so I was trying to find a way to be able to move some more cards. Feel free to steal the idea also or tweak it some, I don't mind.
I was going to take my top BV & priced cards w/no BV cards which for me i'm going to go with $20 and up (50 listings in my case) and give each a # 1-50 and using random.org randomize them (I have already done this 12 times) and them take a list of percentages 50-55-60-65-70-75-80-85-90-95 give each a number 1-10 and Randomize that list (done this 12 times) and then give each one of those lists a # from 1-12 and randomize each one of those lists for the %'s 12 times (done this). I was going to take the 12th list that was created for the cards and the 12th that was created for the % and take the first random card or the top 5 and mark them down by the last random % list that popped up in numberical order. I would do this each day at some point to use as my daily special. There may be times that I would actually lose $ on some of the cards if the right percent popped up, but thats all up to the random gods. Let me know what you think. It's not as confusing as I have made it to sound. I have all the lists in excel right now if I were to do this today. I'm just looking for some feedback to see if this sounds like a good idea or not and any tweaks you may have for me.

Thanks!
