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!

Good luck! Funny thought....did you use part of your giftcard on this?
It will be tough to top that last win!

I have a feeling that BO will need to kick something in to get this sold. If that's the case, I'd suggest bulking up the lower end items, not the opposite.

They really need to put some bigger top end prizes in here, seems like waaaaaay to many chances to lose on this one....maybe a couple $500 or $1000 gift cards will be thrown in, the spots will fill up fast if this gets upgraded a bit

Thanks for all the value posts. Nice job. I lost a little the last time I played.....can't pull the trigger on this one. Hope they throw some more out there, though.

I'm 1-4 in these promos. All of my loses were boxes priced $50-90. This one is too risky for me. Good luck to all that do get in

Default Think there

Rolling with the idea that they got us, and its gonna fill no matter what, but I can't lie, the more I look at the week list the more I think it would be better to withdraw, and just buy the ox I want...cause there are waaaaaay to many misses in this crop
