Promotional sets, also known as Promos, are sets that are given away or exchanged in products such as newspapers, magazines, cereal boxes and airlines. The only thing in common about them is that they're generally free (usually with a purchase of something else or as a gift for attending an event). They vary in pieces, sometimes from one to almost a hundred. They are also exclusive and rare, so as to give an incentive to actually attend the event/purchase the other item. While given away free, these promotional sets can often cost upwards of several hundred (if not thousands) of dollars when resold months or years later. This is in part due to both the exclusive pieces and the fact that promotional sets are only given a limited run before being discontinued.
