So on top of normal breaking activities, we have a relatively major decision to make this month. So, with permission, I'd like to ask for your replies to cover the following this month:

-Confirming participation/team
-Voting on pricing change
-Voting on box selection
-Do you want base cards this month?

As mentioned, we have a potential pricing change. I actually hadn't been paying attention to this, but I checked, and Mr. 264 is correct. With PayPal's fees, rising shipping costs, etc, our current pricing model doesn't work quite as well as it used to.

With that being said, I've brewed up a couple thoughts on how we can address things:

1. Charge $27.50 per person instead of $25.
2. Charge $27.50 per person IF you want base, $25 per person without base.
3. Break slightly approx. $350ish instead of $375ish.
4. Just keep things the same.


The cost isn't TOO bad on my end, so I'm willing to eat the minor hit I'll take and keep things the same. Also, if we decide to reduce the boxes we buy, we'll take that into consideration NEXT month, so we don't have to modify any options. Any price increases will happen for this month.

And to kick things off...

-Yes, I'm in with the Panthers!
-I vote #2, the $2.50 increase for base!
-I vote for Option #2, just to spread things around a bit!
-Were I not opening the cards myself, I would NOT want base!

Im in smile.gif

I vote payment option #3

And box option #1

And as usual, I only want Peyton and Beanie base..

Now, this whole price issue.. Wasnt this a group break where you PAY to get all your teams cards? If that becomes a money issue, the logical thing is, to calculate as if everyone wants every card. If theres extra money, add that to next months total. Seems fairly simple and straight forward. The thought that because you should pay extra because you want what you already paid for is down right moronic.

Mark,

Originally, very few people required base...this has caused increase in shipping costs, in addition shipping costs have increased. Like Sam, I don't have an issue covering some costs, but it is only the right thing to do in being mindful of expenses these days. That is the purpose of the discussion.

We can keep it at the $25 level, but the target product spend reduced. That is why we are having the discussion on options.

Like it states in the first post each month. It says all base, just because the postal prices rise shouldn't mean some should pay more than others. Its a "hazzard" of joining a break where all base can/will be included (by that I mean, if you dont want base, you dont have "extra cash for cards". Its $25 for everything, weather or not you want everything or nothing).

When the postage price rises, its either do we all add extra? Or do we cut in the product? The other two options seem illogical.

Btw im not being angry or anything, it just seems that way when I dont add a smiley laugh.gif

I'll have to respectfully disagree on this one on the cost deal.

Think of it like this: if I offered a slight discount to the participants who decided not to get base, and thus reduced shipping costs, would that be unfair?

This, basically, is the same deal. It's the price increase to all, but a discount to those willing to go without the base cards. It costs less to ship, so I can charge less.

So if I one month have 10 hits and no base its no extra, and the following month I get 5 base cards, youre telling I should pay more for 5 base cards even though it would weigh less than the 10 hits? blink.gif

All in all it doesnt really matter, I pay extra now and then anyway laugh.gif

CHF - I understand where you're coming from, and yes, theoretically, 10 hits would take more to ship than 5 base, and sometimes, you don't get much base, but we have to look at this for the majority of circumstances.

Generally speaking, base will out-weigh/out-bulk the "hits" by a pretty wide margain, and I can tell you from experience that about 99 times out of 100, those packages WITH base are more expensive to ship and require more sleeves, team bags, etc.

Again, I'm open to ANY of the suggestions, but don't think that this is arbitrary by any means. Just trying to be as fair as we can, as much of the time as we can.

Remember, since we're voting on several things, make sure it's clear what you're voting on both the cost issue, and the box selection!

I have to agree with CHF's point. If you legally agree to terms such as $25 for all cards it should be $25. Its almost like terms in a service contract I agree to pay this amout for this service, and that service should be delivered.
But the real thiefs here are: PayPal and the Post Office.
