    14-15 Series 1 pricing. Sorry DACW I won't be shopping with you

    OK, the case an box pricing are really quite good. $805 and $69.95

    But step into their retail store for a few packs... FORGET IT

    $3.80 plus tax is $4.13!! or for those without a calculator $99 per box.

    What are single packs selling for at your LCS?

    Single packs are always more expensive man.

    It is to stop people from buying single packs until they hit all the big cards and then leave only 4 or 5 packs in the box. Rule of thumb with cheap packs like that is that you can save 25-30% by buying a full box.

    Just the way it is, stuff gets cheaper when you buy more of it.

    Can't speak for spx as I haven't bought a pack of it in about 8 years, but $15 for spa is ridiculous, I usually grab 3-4 packs at a time, so that's a guaranteed 2-3 memorable seasons with an outside chance I'll hit a FW or a FWA, and I'm only paying 4.99 a pack. Can't imagine shelling out $15 for a single insert

    My LCS sells series 1 for $3.99, atleast that's what it's been in the past.

    Retail. Sell it by the pack you make more money. My LCS would sell them for $4.50 a pack. I usually buy in bulk and offer less. I would never buy loose packs from my LCS since the one guy (not the shop owner, he is old-school nice) is a total crook. I bought 8 packs of SPx one year and got all base. Not even an insert. I find that hard to believe and just don't buy packs anymore. I buy 2-3+ boxes at a time that way if I don't particularly like the product I have enough of it to sell for better results.

    I often hear about the 'last packs' rule here but it's not for me and especially not at retail prices. If I can afford the box I buy the box. If I can afford the pack I buy the pack, that's where they get ya. So many people can only afford the pack.

    Buy larger quantity, or bulk amounts, and save money. That's how Sam's Club and BJ's stay in business.
