You trying to turn them in to DA or something? Pretty sure they have enough on their hands to have to worry about packing up 5k 2 pack bubble mailers a day. They are getting into supplies now, and I'm sure that is going to take a lot of extra work. I would love to see them sell the mini boxes, but packs is just too much.

Bad business to sell packs IMHO. DA already gets bashed for selling searched stuff. Personally I doubt they do. But because they buy packs/boxes, its very easy to get that reputation when all your buying is someone elses leftover boxes once they hit the case hit. It was a big venture for Chris to start selling boxes. Long ago, he only did sealed cases and for this very reason. As long as that case still has the original factory seal, he can't be blammed for whats inside. Looks at all the collation problems now with boxes, yet alone cases (non sport Heroes being a great example)..some are great and others are horrible..but factory sealed doesnt put the blame one the distrubutor..its all on the company....saves you face, arse, and your customers.

packs are stupid to sell on the site. If you only have likke 40-50 bucks then how about you just save your money and wait until you can afford a box. Matt you got really lucky.

selling packs on a website is a bad idea, but sites that do lure in suckers!! Smart thing to do is buy a box!

I agree. At least you have a guaranteed good hit if you buy a box. If you buy loose pack your odds get worse.

Just save until you can afford a Box because you are controlling your own fate.
Buying packs causes problems at both ends.
Distributor gets email of packs being missing or being accused of pack searching etc.
At the buyers end if they do not get a hit from their packs they might feel they got short changed and 99% will not deal with that seller again etc...
Just my two cents
