This box is very useful if you're looking for energies and need the essentials for playing the game in person. Although the msrp is a bit pricey at $39.99, it's not too bad for what you're getting. If you do the math, each individual booster pack is costs roughly $4-$5, depending on where you go; you get 8 in this box. With all the great deals target is offering, it's definitely worth getting. The only negative thing for me personally is that it's an online only deal, unable to pick up in store. I tried to get it price matched at a specific target store, but they wouldn't do it for me, which I thought was strange because it's on their own website. Luckily delivery was surprisingly quick, even during the holidays, and I didn't have to wait too long.
Now I might be biased because I pulled a rainbow rare *and* a regular art Gardevoir-GX from this product, but this elite trainer box is honestly one of the most useful products that a new PTCG player can buy. Everything you need is all in the box - dice, effect markers, all the good stuff. Would definitely recommend while the price is still $12 off MSRP.
Ignore the two low scoring reviews, these people obviously either ordered the wrong product and don't understand what booster packs are. You aren't guaranteed anything in booster packs. As for the product, if you're starting out in Pokemon, Elite Trainers boxes are a good deal. They have 8 booster packs of their respective set, 5 of each energy, as well as a set of 60 card protectors, a set of dice for damage and coin flips, and a GX marker. All the stuff you need for a tournament is right in here, so if you're just getting started and need some of the basics, this isn't a bad way to go.
Ordered this to get the pikachu promo cards, only to open the box and have no promos. Called customer service and apparently they weren't available at the time even though the site had the deal up with no date. Now I am inconvenienced and have to place a new order, return the original stuff and wait another week to see if I get them this time.
