You have to completely finish checking out to get the deal.

Agree 110%. Very few people have bought more basketball in the past 18 months than me, and I've gotten zero deals. That's life, I am glad for the people [hopefully some kids] who did end up with the cards.

It would be nice if they did something for those that are always around [many far longer than I] but that is entirely up to them, obvs they need to attract new customers as well and if this is the lowest-cost way to do it then kudos to them.

I just hope they have more than one of each available and put a one box limit or list a bunch of specials at a time so they spread the wealth instead of the guy with the fastest computer getting 5 items and everybody else gets none.

Or you could look at it another way. The guys with the faster computer paid more for it. So if you average computer cost with box cost it all probably comes out even in the end.

High $$ computer = cheap boxes
Low $$ computer = high boxes

Gotta look at things from every angle.

Don't forget to average in time discount of the computer.
High$$ computer 3 years ago does not equal a high $$$ computer today.


Also
Better internet connection is a big piece of this equation too.

Not really, people who can afford a fast expensive computer are more likley to be buying expensive boxes. Duh.

Might of been confusing, but what I meant was just in regards to this sale. Faster computer gets you the deals. Slower computer means you have to buy at regular price. It all works out in the end.

While you guys will have plenty to chase here on Friday, Blowout also donated several pieces of memorabilia to be given away for free to collectors on The Beckett Blog who camp out on their computers on Black Friday. We typically do Free Stuff Friday each week, but wanted to do something different, something special this week -- and Blowout made that happen.

We'll have a few of our drawings go all day long, while others will be the "xth person to answer wins variety." We're hoping we can get people popping back and forth to find the latest deals (here) and also have more chances at free stuff at the link below. (We'll try to post some of our contests at set times to help people out, too.)

I'm sure you'll be hearing more about it before then, but here's a link to see what Fish provided. Check it out... Blowout's Black Friday at The Beckett Blog

Last time on Columbus day the styles varied.

1) They posted a sale under the Box Break Specials section of their website and it was just the first people to get to them and buy them.

2) They posted a Buy It Now on ebay and it was the same... First one to buy it gets it.

Hope this helps

I am wondering how it will work as well. Will I need to go into the Black Friday thread in the forums or can I just shop from the main page and see the deals from there. Sorry, I missed out on 9/9/09 so I don't know how Blowout Cards does this sort of thing. I will be on Friday before work but I'm not sure if I will be lucky enough to get in on one of the deals or not. Also, did someone say there will be certain deals every hour or are all the deals available right at the start at 6AM?
