I've really noticed a slow-down over the past year with their promos. I remember when every couple of weeks there seemed to be some sort of promo going on - Oscar picks, golf tournaments, hotdog eating contest, etc.

My personal theory on this is the security breach from earlier this year has really hurt their sales which has slowed the promotional offerings. That theory also doesn't make much sense because in the bigger promos it's not like they were giving anything away for free or offering products at discount rates. Maybe it's just the promos were getting to be too much to keep up with.

So no FREE weekly NFL promo like the past 4 or 5 years where we pick the top passing, running, and receiving players to win boxes? Can't really afford to throw $200 down on a promo every week for 17 weeks of football. That's $3400 and to me, that's 3 months of rent.

EDIT: Not wanting to sound greedy or ungrateful, but it was nice having a promo for those of us who are a little less fortunate.

This is the second year without their box giveaway promo. Maybe because last time they ran it, they had no winner for the entire season, which I would think works in their favor. They get to run a free promo with no prizes.

I miss the good old days where they'd have a promo to give away a lot of their dusty boxes that have sat in their warehouse for close to a decade. Now, they're all about the cash promos. Would be interesting to see their site traffic. Maybe they don't run them because there just aren't as many people frequenting their boards anymore.

I agree. I'm more willing to buy a vast array of boxes during other promos when the boxes are cheaper and there's a couple of good rewards, but the cash promos make boxes go up 10-20% in price with a less exciting rewards.

I've given up on BO putting any good promos anymore after they failed to even have the season long NFL promos like they used to.
Its not the same anymore like the good ole days.

Is this the first year that Blowout has done a trick or treat promo? I wonder how much junk they are going to trick people with? seems like a brilliant way to get rid of some real garbage, lol

I was wondering if a thread would get started about the Trick or Treat promo. At $100 for 2 items...I'm guessing there will be a lot of tricks.

I believe they use to have a list of boxes for the promo. Then would random them when it was full. Trying to search for it from past years. But can not find anything.

I miss the old Trick or Treat promos. We got a list ahead of time of all the available tricks and treats and then it was randomized. Those were fun. This mystery box thing is not my cup of tea. Id like to know what was available at least. Also, Id really only want baseball so even if I got a big treat and it were basketball itd still be a trick to me. Maybe if they split it up by sport.

Now you guys know where those $1 relic and auto cards they've been buying back from people have ended up. They get the treats while we get the tricks.

In case someone who works for Blowout Cards still reads these posts down here, is there ANY chance at free promos in the future or should you just rename the thread to not include (and other FREE giveaways!) in the title? I mean, you haven't run a free promo in probably 2 years now?
