eGift Bag...Good in Theory

I run for free shirts and bananas...so the freebies are always on of the nicest bonuses when running a race. So we come to the Marine Corps Marathon, and they're doing an online eGift Bag. Good in theory...saves trees, saves costs, saves....yada yada yada.

Bad in execution. The best items, like the USAA duffel bag (and I've been giving that company money since I was 16), have to be picked up at various vendors around town. I'm not going to Pentagon City with a coupon to pick up my swag.
