COMC SPRING CLEANING: 6/14 – 6/21

COMC Spring Cleaning

I am happy to announce that COMC’s Spring Cleaning Deal will run from June 14th through the 21st. This special is a great way to close out spring with a bang!

Now is the time to get in some good deals. We have offered sellers a limited time special to help shed some inventory in time for summer. There are plenty of cards to choose from, with many priced to move quick. To make the deal even better, we’re offering a Free Shipping special. Request a shipment of 30 cards or more, and we will waive the $3 shipping cost for a standard order.

We are excited for this next season and we hope you will take advantage of these specials and make this spring a huge success!

Auctions & Specials

COMC Reflection

It’s nearing the end of the year, which is a great time for reflection and contemplation. Looking back on 2014 with all its ups and downs, there is one thing we appreciate most – YOU.  That you’ve had our backs in our most difficult year has been the greatest gift of all.

This is exciting.  You have asked us for the ability to do auctions for years. So we are testing this functionality.  We still have a lot of work to do, but we hope to allow you to run your own auctions in the near future.  In the meantime, test out our auctions, pick up some new product, and give us your feedback.

Black Friday Processing Special – Expanded!

Happy Halloween!  This is not a trick, but it is a treat.

We are expanding the Black Friday Processing Special to include 2013 products, and we are extending the domestic post mark date to November 12th.

Get your cards on COMC in time for Black Friday!

Remember:

  • No premium items – these will still get our Premium service.
  • No trade show stamps.
  • No National Treasure printing plates.

The fee for the special is 50 cents/item. Unlike our Basic or Premium services, this fee will be charged up front, so you must have sufficient funds in your account to cover the processing fees or you can include payment in package.

  • FYI: There’s a $10 minimum batch processing fee, so you’ll want to send in 20 (or more) cards.

All domestic packages for the Black Friday Special must be postmarked by November 12st. This refers to the USPS postmark on the outside of the package and not any dates generated by our submission wizard.

This part is very important, so please note:

Make sure to write on the OUTSIDE of box by the address label that your box includes a BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL transaction – doing so will ensure that it receives priority treatment.

We guarantee your cards will be live on the site by the Wednesday before Black Friday.  And, the sooner we receive your cards, the sooner they’ll be up on the site, so send them in as soon as possible.  Anything received with a postmark after November 12th will receive our Basic Service.

And, as always, stayed tuned for the latest news and developments at our FacebookTwitter, Google+, and Instagram pages.

2014 Black Friday Processing Special

Hello COMC Nation! We hope you had a great “civic holiday” long weekend! While you were doing whatever you do during the 2nd weekend of October, we at COMC HQ used our time wisely to put together a little something for our sellers, something you’ve been asking for recently.

No, not the COMC Swimsuit Calendar…that project has been put on hold, until we renew our gym memberships. 

I’m referring to a Black Friday Processing Special for 2014!
