It’s that time of year; there’s a chill in the air, the sun’s going down a lot sooner than it used to, and those jack-o-lanterns are sitting comfortably in the compost pile. (We hope so, otherwise “eeewwwww”…)
You know what else is coming up? Of course you do – the biggest holiday season of the year: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years…and Black Friday. Two words that mark the beginning of the biggest shopping weekend of the year. And COMC is going to be right in the midst of it.
For weeks, people have been asking us about our Black Friday Specials. Trust me, we were wanting to tell you. But, we also wanted to wait until the time was right, and we’re pretty sure that time is now.
Here’s what we’ve got planned for Black Friday!
It’s one of our most popular specials and we’re bringing it back for the Black Friday weekend. We’re offering free shipping on all cards that are bought between Friday, Nov 29th and Monday, Dec 2nd. Please note, to qualify for this special, there is minimum purchase of 20 items and they must be purchased in Simplified Buying Mode.
Note: Items purchase from Advanced Reselling Mode, items purchased by buying another seller’s entire port via a Port Sale, or items purchased from the old CheckOutMyCards website do not qualify for free shipping, but you can still get a $3 discount by shipping 20 or more items. You can switch your buying mode in the Profile and Options page.
$5 Bonus Store Credit for Every $100 Purchased
All Black Friday weekend (Nov 29th – Dec 2nd) you will receive an extra $5 store credit for each $100 of store credit you purchase. Limit of $50 bonus credit per day. That is a total of $200 bonus credit if you purchase $1,000 store credit each of the 4 days of our Black Friday weekend.
$5 Bonus Store Credit for Every 50 Items Shipped
Last August, we introduced a Shipping Credit when purchasing items in bulk. Normally you have to purchase 100 items in a calendar month in order to get the extra $5, but for the month of November, you get the $5 for every 50 items you purchase and have shipped by 11:59 PM PST Saturday November 30th.
And, as the Shipping Credit is deposited on the 1st of the month, any credit you earn in November you can use in December…just in time for Cyber Monday.
$5 – $500 Cyber Monday Shopping Sprees
100 COMC customers will win a Cyber Monday Shopping Spree. One lucky customer will get a $500 shopping spree, and the rest of the winners will receive shopping sprees worth between $5 and $100.
Winners will be randomly selected based on the number of items that were purchased and shipped in 2013. Items purchased and shipped on Black Friday or Saturday will receive 5 times the chances.
We will announce the winners on on our Facebook page on Sunday November 30th. You will have all day Cyber Monday to spend your winnings.
On top of all the promotions that we are giving away, we are encouraging all of our sellers to run their own Black Friday Promotions. Since we are not charging them anything extra to run the promotions, we expect to have more than 1,000 sellers running promotions on more than 5,000,000 items. This means there will be lots of great deals happening across COMC.com – sellers will be able to customize their markdowns up to 80% off their original asking price.
There you have it. We have a little something for everyone, and you won’t even have to get out of bed to do your shopping…does it get much better than that?
As always, be sure to keep up with all the news and company updates by following us on our Blog, Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube pages.
