Rolling the dice and buying a 2nd spot. Really trying to improve on last month's 2010 Ultimate Basketball and 2010 UFC Knockout.

I would have loved hitting a 2010 Knockout box!

LOL...If I hit it again, I will be happy to trade with you. Though I must confess, I got a couple hits in there that should sell okay. All will be on eBay this weekend.

I did 2 out of the 3 of these for the Halloween promo and had been feverishly checking for the 4th to be listed to join which of course never happened. This one looks pretty rough though with the increased pricing, slots and low end boxes. I was talking about this with a few guys today and we all felt that if the $2,000 gift card was split into 4 $500 gift cards thus increasing the odds of hitting a nice prize, it would make this a little more appealing in our eyes. I am going back and forth on joining this but what do you guys think about this recommendation? I am sure it would not affect this particular cornucopia but possibly a future one???

I think I'd prefer it that way, say you turned the 2000 prize into 4 550 prizes and replaced 3 $50 boxes or something. I think these promotions would do better with a similar average return but a smaller standard deviation to the return, so you dont need to go so top heavy and leave a bunch people with real cheap boxes

I think it's too top heavy so not into this one. I would certainly do the Halloween one.

That woulda been awesome....more chances at doubling up your money, instead of the $2000....although since the promo is in full swing, I think they wouldn't be able to change it

Trying this out for the first time with one spot. Still debating a second spot. Fingers crossed!

Agree that breaking up the $2,000 into four $500s would make this more attractive.

Blowout can change the promotion at anytime (its in the rules). I'm pretty sure they changed up Halloween Promotion 1 to break up the cases into separate prizes.

Could we get a Friday evening update by any chance? I'm considering buying a few but am wondering how many are left.

Unless you are planning on buying about 50 spots, I think it is safe to assume you can purchase a few spots with no problem. I would guess it will sell out by mid-week next week, if not sooner.

Looks like 58 remaining as of 7 am eastern Saturday morning..I'm guessing this sells out by Monday afternoon!
