When we introduced our first-ever bulk discount rates in 2022, we had no idea we'd be ushering in a paradigm shift in the Bread Pool. By the slightest of margins, more BreadHeads purchased bulk (3+ brackets) packages than purchased a single bracket. To seize that momentum, we're making our bulk discount packages even more attractive in 2023 by offering a $1,000 bonus game to all who throw down for a bulk package. You earn a complimentary Pick 5 entry for each full multiple of 3 brackets your purchase in a single transaction. John Scher (Aliso Viejo, CA) jump-started the game-within-a-game competition by purchasing 21 brackets to earn seven Pick 5 entries.
Anyone purchasing a bulk (3 + brackets in a single purchase) in 2023 will receive an invitation to our new PICK 5 game. There's no additional charge, and you can't buy your way into the game -- it's exclusively for our bulkers! On Selection Sunday (March 12), bulk purchasers will be emailed a code to enter PICK 5: Select any 5 teams in the tourney; for every round each of your teams advance, you'll receive points equivalent to that team's seed number (1-16). Think strategically; a single win by a #7 seed earns more points (7) than a six-win title run by a #1 seed (6 points). Most points claims a $1,000 Bonus! Again, every multiple of 3 brackets purchased in a single transaction earns an entry: 3, 4 or 5 brackets = one Pick 5 entry; 6 brackets = two entries.
Within hours of purchasing a bulk-bracket package, you'll receive an invitation to the Pick 5 game via email.
BULK RATES ONLY APPLY ONLY TO THE BREADHEAD MAKING THE PURCHASE, AND TO ONE PURCHASE AT A TIME! SEE THE "PLEASE READ" SECTION BELOW THE BULK RATES FOR DETAILS.
Depending on which bracket package you purchased, $10-$19 of each bracket is collected for administrative, entertainment and attitude-adjustment purposes.
Same as it every was.
Worth every penny.
As always, $50 of each bracket fee goes to the payout purse: The rest goes to the Jim Beam Fund. Be prepared to be entertained!
In a wholly unforeseen development in 2022, our historical average of 1.8 brackets per BreadHead skyrocketed to 2.5 brackets, thanks to the popularity of the 3-bracket package
$62 was the BP's price per bracket from 2003-2016.
Lowest bracket price since 2002!
Bulk-rate purchases apply only to single purchases by single participants -- you can't purchase 2 brackets now and add another in a week and expect the 3-bracket discount. Nor can you purchase 2 brackets for yourself and 2 for a friend and expect a 4-bracket discount.
For example, If you purchase 4 brackets for yourself and 2 for your friend, only the 4 brackets in your portfolio count toward the bulk rate. In this example, the math breaks down to (4 x $65 = $260) + (2 x $69 = $138) for a total payment of $398.
As such, discount brackets cannot be transferred; you cannot circumvent the system by transferring 2 discount brackets to your friend after you purchase them. If you do transfer discount brackets, you will be charged the difference between the cost of your discount bracket(s) and the cost of the bracket(s) your friend would have paid if he (s)he had purchased those brackets independently.
