I don't know if this has been posted yet, but are you guys still going to do that GU/Auto trade in for boxes, or am I completely out-of-the-loop as to when and if you were still running that promotion?

My first year trying this out...posted this since I'm confused on twitter:

" Metsmatician xBigNick
@blowoutcards Oh, and since deals will be posted throughout day, do we pay different shipping on every one?

@blowoutcards Also,everyone keeps mentioning to just refresh "the page"- will all deals be posted on the front page instead of each section?

@blowoutcards Where can I find out more about the black friday deals (and weekend deals)and sneak peaks?Will you be posting them on twitter?

What you said

I'm new to this promotion but sounds like more hassel to me then its worth for the regular folks crowd. If it truely is a flippers paradise with extremely cheap boxes on Ebay that sell in 1 second it sounds like everything is in extremely very limited quantities and without some script your not going to get crap there. Every year Bestbuy and other stores do Black Friday deals with limited quantities but they at least would carry a minimum of 10-15 of the very best items. Sounds like this is a 1 shot deal? Is that right?

What is blowouts Ebay name?

Last year, they had 1-2 cases and what not an hr for reduced prices on ebay, however on the website itself it had larger amounts of boxes/cases at reduced prices. HOWEVER, a lot of the deals are for old products (ie last year was a lot of 06 contenders + legends etc). I got a box or 2 last year of some lower end stuff. If you're fast and have money to buy cases, you'll be happy. We'll see what changes they make this year

Do you remember what Ebay handle they were using to conduct these sales? Appreciate the response

1. yes you pay seperate shipping on each order you place throughout the day.
2. no, "the page" is referring to twitter, most likely. BO posts links to each deal on twitter when they go live, and so u have to refresh their twitter page often to catch a new deal as it is posted.
3. this thread is supposed to be where they'll give sneak peaks, so stay tuned i guess

DITTO! Not saying last year was bad. The fact that blowout does this at all is awesome. I just recall 2 years ago was a 20/10 (on a scale of 1-10). Last year was more like a 7/10. I recall one example in particular... a 2007 absolute memorabilia football box I bought in 2009 BF for $75 was $90 in 2010 BF (I know some boxes increase in price after a year, but there were lots like this). The price is still better than the $100+ price tag you normally see but it was a "let down" of the 2009 craziness. I felt that last years BF prices could be found from blowout on a random weekly special instead of a twitter page link while refreshing every 5 seconds at 5AM.

The biggest problem was everything was harry potter/indiana jones/star wars/barney or some other non-sport product. I do remember the ebay deals were awesome.... but I think I only got one or two. If I show up this year I am afraid I will pick up cases of indiana jones cards just to spend money!!! The setup for picking up the deals is not impossible. The problem is people spend time looking to see if it is a good deal before pulling the trigger. Good luck to all this year. Hoping for the best.

See you there!

P.S. Thanks for putting this on again this year BO. You guys rock!

I wish the forums were on a different server as it turns into a nightmare for those of us who don't wish to play in their reindeer games.

Any chance you could get some 2009 Just Minors USA mini helmet boxes in stock for Black Friday? $28 a piece makes a good throw-in to try to get above $150

About the other thread:

"Feel free to add any of the following SUPPLIES, BECKETTS, and PACKS to your cart to get over the shipping limit! (Due to the high volume of orders we expect to receive, we will be unable to offer combined shipping discounts/refunds for separate orders during our promotional weekend."
I want to do that but by time I click through all those things I'm afraid the items I pick will sell out, and I don't want to pre-cart them because they still might not put me over shipping limit so I'll be buying them for nothing.

Put what you need in your cart beforehand.

Yeah but what if with the items I'm still not put over limit. :P I guess it's much easier to take them out then rush and put them in.

Anyway, I've been looking around. Are the deals only posted on ebay? I thought I read they post some on blowoutcards.com.

I wonder if they will be doing deals on 2011 Triple Threads Football and 2011 Crown royale football?
