The amount of these $200 VGC's that get sold to non MSer's has got to be below 10%. They sell (up to) $500 VGCs in nearly every grocery store for less than the fee that Staples and OD charge for $200's. The nice thing that doesn't get enough acknowledgement is the $300's are on the website for $8.95 and you can buy up to $1,800 in one purchase. Depending on your method of time/cost to MS it's still a very good deal (Cost on a $300 is still $0.006ish per UR for me) if you can at least turn around and use the CSR for portal redemption at 0.015x.
