This went surprisingly smoothly. No scalper mania. Went to a mall with several stores offering the promo. Some had long-ish lines. Got there 15 mins before opening and had no trouble getting a card. Didn’t feel like going to another store for a 2nd one but maybe could have. Now hopefully the price drops to about €20 so everyone who wants one can get one.

No scalper mania.
IMHO that was more due to the attendants being professionals about it than people not trying.
Saw multiple people in line with more than 1 item and dropping them and buying just 1 after talking to the attendants (I assume they were trying to split in multiple purchases).
Also saw people in groups of 4+ where clearly only one picked the items and gave money to the others, and these hit more than 1 store.

Still, it was far more “friendly” or organized than what I expected after what happened the first time.
