We have set up all the threads for each of the Specials in our Box Breaks Section of the Forum. You can also access the links on the front page of this thread. Please post your box breaks in the appropriate area. Thanks

Thanks.... I really didn't like any of the specials, but it would have been nice to get something. Hell, it would have been nice to PM's, too, but I couldn't. It was just frustrating sitting by a computer all day just to get shut out.

But the lesson I learned from this is.... next time there is a sale like this, don't even bother.

I am very disappointed in BO right now...


Really? I hope you are joking with this post.

That was the point of the promotion, one day, 9/9/09.

STUMP

Their hours of operation are during the day. What are they supposed to do make their staff work at night to accomodate you? Wait, don't answer that because I actually have a feeling you would probably say yes.

Thank you Blowout for doing this. I know you can not please everyone, however you pleased many!

For those who are complaining, this was a privilege and not a right. No one is in entitled to anything and they did not have to do this in the first place. Please show some respect to the Chris and Pat for their generosity. Maybe if there is a next time, you can get in on the deals.

To the staff of Blowout Cards,

Thank you very much for an entertaining day yesterday. I failed miserably in obtaining any of the deals, but I have now enrolled myself in a typing 101 class so when you all decide to be crazy again, I will be ready. But all was not lost, my wife let me hold a credit card in hopes of spending some money, the first time in many years, so this should be considered a success. So thanks again and I look forward to the madness in the future!!!

I remember this early in my marriage. Don't worry, it gets better the longer your together. I've been married 25 years and can now carry one in my wallet

Once again, thanks Blowout!!!

For those of you complaining...Get a life and grow up!

How are you going to enforce this? You must post the break? Give me a break. What are you going to do, not sell to the person in the future if they don't. I highly doubt that.

As far as selling the cases, same thing. How are you going to know if the case is resold or not? As long as it isn't sold on the forum, why does it matter? For all you know a lurker who doesn't even belong to the forum got one. I mean christ, half the free world knew about these customer appreciation specials by the middle of the day because of all the bloggers.

That is part of what was sad about this event. It really was every where and long time loyal customers were shut out of the event. It was a cluster f around here yesterday and how many shop owners, dealers, and others took advantage of these deals and not the loyal case breakers who have been the backbone of support for this company. Most of them appeared to be left out on the street looking in as the site was so slow and the amounts offered made it near impossible to get anything. I could really care less as it got word out about blowout but now the million dollar question is how many of these buyers will be repeat buyers in the future and buy something other than crazy priced specials.

I was able to get a couple of the boxes, but was pretty P.O.'d when the box I really wanted wasn't available to me because I had gotten a previous special. Dear Blowout, if you're going to limit people like that, tell us first, I would have NEVER ordered the Score Jumbo knowing it would prevent me from getting a box of Series 1 Jumbo Baseball. I appreciate the specials and all that you do for the community, all I ask is you lay down the rules first instead of making them up as you go.

I tried to buy enough that I could get free shipping, but the sight kept crashing. I ended up paying quite a bit in postage I believe. LOL

All in all, it was fun in the morning for about an hour. Once the sight kept crashing, I got bored with it, and it wasn't fun any more. I'm hoping this can be done again. Perhaps on 11/10/09. And if so, hopefully the server can be upgraded so crashing is at least minimized.

Congrats on the "most users on-line ever" yesterday.

I was able to get 3 boxes...had no problems at all, you just had to be fast....I dont really know why everyone is crying...I mean they didnt have to do it at all and of course you have to be fast as there is a limit per customer for every box....they cant have 500 boxes available just to pleasure everyone on this site, they would lose there a$$....and to the people that are complaining saying "well I couldnt get in on it because I was working"...thats not Blowouts fault....they do not have to run around your schedule..
