Nah, we wouldn't think you greedy - everyone loves prizes!
Usually the only people who opt out are the ones who won something in the last event which, unless this is a special event, disqualifies you from winning in this event.
As TechCrazy pointed out, with 71k you are eligible for any prizes up to $49.99. The extra requirements of total points and number of events only kicks in over $100.
