Comments About The Promotion!

At the end of the promotion, we would like for you to leave a comment under here and tell us how we did with the promotion, what you liked and didn't like and your thoughts overall on the Panini POD promo in both hobby shops and on this blog! Both Panini and ourselves appreciate the feedback!!

  1. The promotion as a whole has been great. However the POD daily portion of the contest has been a bit shaky due to the constantly changing rules. That part has been a bit annoying. At times there was some scoring inaccuracies with not enough points being awarded or point being awarded for not even entering that day. The daily part has been a bit long winded and at times seemed to be a bit monotonous. I have been participating in this promotion on this blog and at the closest LCS which is not that close, lol, and I have had a good time. The prizes are good and the contests are easy. I just wish that there would have been more participation.

    1. Sorry for that once again. Early on we had no idea how challenging this daily contest was going to be. I think once it was split into 3 different divisions we got it figured out and it takes us longer to add up the points. However, the 2 hours spent uploading and point scoring seems to work after we fixed it. There doesn't seem to be anymore problems that we have found.

  2. I have participated weekly in the Weekly one. I didn't do the daily one due to lack of time. But I have really enjoyed entering the weekly contests! They have been great and definitely challenging to say the least.

    I like what Panini does with their promotions. And the Player Of the Day one was another good one!

  4. Part 1:

    I think the promotion is great and that a lot of work went inot making it possible. I myself, do not really collect football cards and therefor have not been trying to hard to win (not wanting to take prizes away from those who do collect football cards). I also have not been a big fan of Panini cards. I like them and think some of the designs are well done, but I do think they have too many redemptions and gimmicks (but they all do). I would like to see sports cards go back to the early days with a major base set - maybe with a few short prints that are hard to get - and with very few inserts. Too many inserts these days!

  5. Love doing the weekly contests! Wanted to join in on the daily ones but didn't think i had enough to catch up.

    The overall Panini promotion looks great. Don't have an LCS nearby so can't participate in it. Thats why I am glad I get the chance to participate here on this blog.

    I think both the promotions and the customer service has been great since day one. I really appreciate you guys doing fun stuff like this. I dont have enough time to participate as much as I would like in the daily promotions but I do look forward to the weekly ones. Keep up the good work!

  9. My husband and I had a great time with your contests and are sad to see them end. The best part was our trip down to Austin to the three shops, lol. Thank you for doing this contest.

  10. I really enjoyed the daily contest on this blog. I really regret not looking into my cards after getting home from work in the beginning. I only started looking at them last week, then it turned out I had some of most of the POD's. lol In the beginning of the contest I got discouraged seeing alot of people with way more points than I did which caused me to give up. But once you switched to the three divisions it really got me motivated. Awesome job on the contest. I'd really love to see more box reviews on this site.

  11. I think the concept is good and it's nice for folks to try and win something. I don't have a lot of cards to have the POD, but it appears most people enjoyed the contest and that's what really matters - pleasing the customer (current or potential).

    I think the POD promotion is great. Its got a Willy Wonka feel to it w/ the golden ticket. I definitely enjoy your weekly contests! Especially winning them! Ha. Also, I think Panini is staying very competitive against companies like Topps & are right there with them. Great job by Panini.

  13. The daily contest was easy to participate in but got a little monotonous after a while...but I did look forward to checking the standings to see where I stood everyday. All my questions about the contest were answered by email quickly and effectively. Thank you for that! A fun contest overall!
    The big weekly contests have also been easy to participate in, and it's fun to see how accurate your entry is.
    Keep up the good work!

  14. The beginning of the contest was frustrating for me as their was alot of miscommunication about the contest but whenever I had a question you guys were quick to clarify any question I had. I also did not like the couch potato link postings early on. This contest was supposed to be a fair advantage for all and that was so unfair because most of us have jobs and other things that occupy our time. I thought there was no way to catch up with Amy and Dan. Once you fixed that issue the contest was more fun. I understand that you were trying to get more people involved and I think that there were just other ways to do that which we showed. The object was for to get us to partipate and visit our local LCS which I am thankful for because if it weren't for the contest and the rule stipulations of purchasing cards I would have NEVER pulled that RGIII auto jersey card. I really enjoyed the competition and it wasn't easy. Alot of work, money and time was involved. Not only on our parts but yours as well. I do believe that the winner should have won the grand prize because of everything it took to win. Even if I didn't win this contest I believe that. If I got this right. ANYONE has a chance to win the grand prize if they have a GOLDEN TICKET. That means that if a 3rd place person gets a GOLDEN TICKET they receive the box of Rookies and Stars??? That doesn't make since to me. Anyways I thank you guys for the time you put forth in making this FUN for us and we all can learn from this and make it more fun and competitive next year. Thanks to Panini and Sport Card Collectors for doing what you do!!!!! Truly a winning combination!!!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!! GOD BLESS!!!!!

    1. Just wanted to let you know that you are not the only person on this contest or blog who has a JOB. I work 48 to 50 hours a week as a helicopter mechanic. I get my entries and posting in before my shift, on breaks, and after my shift. I also have two kids just like you who require my attention, and a loving wife. So don't call people couch potatoes who can just manage their time way better than you can. It is offensive and rude! That is the second time that you have done this and I do not appreciate it.

    2. Dan my statement was in no way saying that you were lazy or didn't have a job. I was stating that it was an unfair advantage for the other contestants who are busy with their day to day lives. I'm glad you work and I am glad you take care of your family. I wasn't commenting on that. Posting links to other sports sites is VERY time consuming and that was the point I was making. My wording may offended you and I apologize to you and Amy. I'm a straight forward person and I just used the wrong word usage but I was just stating that it was unfair hence the reason you and Amy jumped out to the Big runaway lead. The contest was to remain fair and fun and it wasn't until they changed the ruling on the posting of the links. The main reason for the contest was so we could visit our LCS in our area. It was a learning experience for all of us and win or lose I had fun competing with EVERYONE!!! Looking forward to next year. Take care Dan and God Bless!!!!
