Aaaaaaaand this is exactly why I never buy mystery boxes.
Nobody would have bought a box if the implication was literally "you get what you get, no guarantees, could be a rock, could be a basket."

It's not supposed to be a $100 spin at the roulette wheel, it's... a mystery box. Some level of variance there, but the implication is that the customer should expect to be satisfied.

I could not disagree more. How could Discraft know what anyone's definition of satisfied could be. Read this thread. Everyone's definition of satisfaction is wildly varied.

A mystery box implies a $100 spin at the roulette wheel, IMO.

I got my bright blue Chainstar Lite yesterday.

I feel guilty seeing what some other people got.

I guess you all had to get stickers and lanyards for them to be able to afford giving me a nice basket I guess this makes up for all the times I didn't win jack squat at raffles

Yes - the shirt size was a required question at check out.

I received:

One dri-fit, one zip up sweatshirt, a hat (cool hat, but SOOO big, even for my giant skull)...

Five discs: Jawbreaker Roach, Jawbreaker Banger-GT, Big Z Buzzz, Big Z Archer and Big Z Undertaker.

All in all, I'm satisfied. I'll mess around with the discs, and the clothing may or may not get worn. Regardless, the value was there.

But when part of the tag line is you are guaranteed a box with value $100 or more, and a unlucky few of the people getting boxes the retail value did not even add up to $100. I would feel teed off if I ended up one of those people. I would try to find the exact people who packaged my bag, and explain why. I want at least enough that costs $100 in reatail or I am not going to stop asking the company in emails and stuff why I did not get what you promised me in one of your taglines for the promotion.

Good. I bet Discraft workers who did the promotion would feel stupid if they did not ask for that, the Discraft employees who did the packing would get a bunch of return clothing.

Anybody that says they weren't just buying it to get a chance at a basket, Grip bag or fancy Buzzz are just flat out lying. If you don't understand what the purpose of a factory store mystery box is, then....well....you're just kinda dumb.

((the general YOU))

I'm just glad I don't have the money to spend on these things. I would have gotten a zombie 23 stickers and a can cover mini(I don't drink)
