If you remember the packs were standard A500 boxes with a special cardboard sleeve which went around them. (perhaps not all of them but from Batman Pack on for sure!)

The Airmiles pack was the very FIRST A500 pack. I am betting they just threw away the cardboard sleeve and made a new pack. The sleeves were just recycled or went to landfill.

Even so writing off 25k cardboard sleeves would not have cost 120k... perhaps in lost revenue during the time it took them to create a new pack?? Or perhaps there was a boo-boo with Airmiles and they figured only so many would claim and everyone did... a bit like the Hoover "Tickets to New York" fiasco.

I would take everything in RetroGamer with a pinch of salt.
