Okay, here’s the long and short…well more like the long. Well…I placed a big order with YYE as documented in the unboxing video posted in the forum. So when I placed the order, I corresponded with customer service about some things. I totally forgot there were prizes associated with the trading cards, and told them I just wanted to complete my set. I notified customer service that I didn’t need a lot of packs of cards cause I only needed 7 cards to complete the set. I figured I’d save them from sending me a lot of doubles and wasting the cards. Well…they sent me a whole stack of cards anyway, including the ones I needed to complete the set.
It took me a day or so to open the box of throws when I received it cause I was working a lot : and wanted to do the unboxing on video too. Then, it took me another day to open all the card packs too. Well…when I opened them, I found a Center Trac Bearing and felt like I hit the lottery ;D. Then, in another pack, I found the claim ticket for Prize #1. I wasn’t too shocked yet, cause I totally forgot about the prize aspect. Then I remembered that when I told customer service the card packs were no big deal cause I only needed the 7 cards, I almost screwed myself out of the chance to win :-[. It’s like they saved me from myself. Then, when I found out that I won a $250 gift certificate to use on the YoYoExpert.com site for anything I want…I fell off my chair :o.
I held onto those cards for two days before I had a chance to open them all and sort them out. I was SHOCKED, not only that I won, cause I never have any luck…but shocked that I won so big, and almost screwed myself out of a winning chance. I totally just wanted to complete the set and forgot about the chance to find a bearing or a prize or anything in the packs. This is a great site, I’m glad I won, and thank the customer service (Andre) for saving me from myself. I would have screwed that up big time. I’m soooo happy now, like I’m still dreaming, but give me some advice…what should I buy now? Thanks Andre and all at YYE for all the advice, and such a great site! 8)
