I agree with you at this point. But still they will try to get as many as they can handle since the standard for the rule is not very high.

If based on your requirement, that definitely is hard to reach and takes alot of time and effort. But it seems that is not what the level in this promotion.
if someone makes a just ok film, I just wonder if that is qualified.

This alone is why I probably won't really get to take much of an advantage of this promotion.

I'm too busy trying to learn effects and presentation skills to actually try to put forth the effort of actually getting someone to film me performing. I'm spending most of my time studying and reading about basic handlings and sleights...I don't really have much of the desire (or confidence) to go out and perform for random people. Sure, I perform effects for co-workers and such, but I know them and it's not difficult for me to approach them. It's completely different to just go out and perform for random people, in my opinion.

I only hope that the promotion goes on long enough for me to actually feel comfortable performing for people while being recorded so that I can take advantage of it. Until then, I don't feel like I'm "wasting" any money by buying an effect and then NOT getting the money back for it. I still feel like I get value from my purchases just so long as I enjoy them.

oh come on! i never called it a waste!


its a chance at a good deal, so i'd like to take advantage of it. sue me. thats what everyone else on this thread is doing. (with a few exceptions) seeing if they can get a piece of the action and save some dough. humans work that way, its just like black friday deals, why do you think stores are so packed? cause of the cheap stuff! sure theyd buy it just the same if it werent on sale, but because it is. they are more excited about their purchase.

:roll:

My comment wasn't directed at you. I was stating a fact about myself. I don't feel that I waste money by buying a trick and then not getting it for free, just so long as I feel that I got a good value for the trick regardless.

This might sound dumb, but I just want to clarify. This would apply to card wallets,right? So if I got a card wallet and a DVD about card wallet routines, would I get both of them for free? Thanks.

I think it would only work if the wallet came with the DVD.... not if they are two separate products

I'm not sure if this has been asked yet, but I don't think it has. :P
When/if we get refunded, is it in "penguin" dollars, or do I really get my money back?
Either one is still a great deal, I'm just curious. :)

That's a good question.

I wouldn't mind at all if it were in Penguin Bucks. It would give me an excuse to keep buying effects!!

Lol my style of magic when I do perform is pretty flirty so that would be pretty weird IMHO

Im pretty sure the performer has to be 16 or older... other wise there probably wouldnt be an age limit, since all the kids usually have their parents open the account in the first place in order to pay using their credit card or debit card.

There are age limits on things for a reason... get used to it... at least till you're 21.

So let's say I purchase a Boa coin bender. In order to get my money back I would have to use the handling explained in the instructions? What if I just use the Boa to prebend the coin and just do a PK coin bend using a shuttle pass? I need a good convenient way to bend coins. Would it coint if I use the Boa just for the setup? Or would I have to actually be using it in the video?

I see a lot of questions, and zero videos. Which is totally puzzling to me.
