Yeah, I have to agree with this... I don't post much but I have been buying from blowout since early 2006.

You got to realize that it sucks for members who are always here buying, busting cases and contributing to the site and when the have promos like todays everyone comes out of nowhere and joins the site gets the deals and never show there face again. It is frustrating for the ones who are always here helping to keep this site moving forward.

It's funny how buying cards sounds kind of like the rhetoric of politics!

I've been a member for a week and I've bought now 13 boxes and posted 4 box breaks. If you take my average, I'm probably higher than most on this site. Just because I'm new (very new), doesn't mean I haven't contributed. Also, please check my box breaks, I've been waiting for comments. FYI, apparently I'm at the center of this though I don't know why. The forums are awesome and I can't wait to write up more box breaks and be an active member.

I agree, but there are always going to be a few take of advantage of situations. Its called the real world. It happens everywhere. But lets say for every one of these "blowout days" that it attracts 3 new members who stay and participate from here on out. Is it not worth it? Blowout needs more customers than just the few hundred on this message board, or they would not be able to survive, much less offer these kind of deals.

Exactly. Almost 400 new members signed up on 9/9/09 for the deals.
I know several guys who bust multiple cases of alot of product that would provide so much info that would be useful to others, but they have bailed on this forum and bailed on Blowout as their supplier as well.

well it just seems its funny how all these poeple come out of the woodwork and grab up all the deals, once the links get connected to other trade sites.

im not saying post counts should be used for members to get the deals. but when a member has a post count of 100 or less, 0 feedback and has been a member since 2007 what do you think? Im not stupid and others think the same thing

Yeah, it really sucks when your favorite merchant is offering rock-bottom prices, I mean, that's *terrible* isn't it?

Only the Chosen Few [self-selected of course] should benefit.

I mean, nothing frustrates me more when I go to Best Buy on Black Friday for the 1 $99 plasma TV they have on Special sale and there are like...dozens of people there ahead of me. Where did they come from?

I haven't gotten one of these deals either. So sad...

I was in know way attacking you just defending the post and what i took from what was said. You can be the one of few that stay and contribute and that is great I believe it was a general statement on what we have seen and not a personal attact on you.

I have a few non-sport boxes that would tempt me.

Nah, I don't think you are at the middle of it. I haven't seen any of your breaks yet but will definitely look at them. I been here a little while but don't get to break as much as I would like but really like checking out the other breaks.

Fair enough. To be honest I agree with you to some extent, just had to defend my name! No hard feelings. Please check out my box breaks though, I do scans and all!

Nothing, just a little frustration over getting a good deal today.

Exactly my point. You are saying you are more entitled than everyone else. If thats the way people want to be, thats fine. I am just saying you are only hurting blowout when you are talking like that. I'm done for the day. I need to let the more deserving people get these deals. Thank you for the specials today Chris/Pat. Some of us truely do appreciate it.
