Millions of items from all of your favorite teams, players and sets will be marked down throughout our week-long sale. Now is the perfect time to treat yourself to the cards that you’ve wanted all year long!

It wouldn’t be a bonus sale without a bonus, now would it? ‘Tis the season for giving, so we’re giving you a 5% bonus on Store Credit purchases December 25-31! Simply deposit at least $100 of Store Credit throughout the duration of the Holiday Bonus Sale to qualify!

Purchase $250 in
Store Credit – Receive $262.50 in your account!
Purchase $1000 in
Store Credit – Receive $1050 in your account!

COMC Members who make qualifying Store Credit purchases at any point throughout the sale will receive this bonus. Credit purchased must be spent on COMC.com. Bonus credit will be removed from accounts if you request a refund on any Store Credit purchased during the promotion.

With the giving spirit still in mind, we’re giving our sellers the opportunity to run a Sales Promotion throughout the Holiday Bonus Sale by waiving our usual $3/day promotion set-up fee.

You can buy items throughout the Holiday Bonus Sale and request a shipment for your items next week, next year (so, next week…), or even in 2020 and beyond! You pay shipping just once, regardless of how many items you buy.

Maybe you found an amazing deal on an item throughout the Holiday Bonus Sale, but you had a change of heart or don’t collect that particular player. Why not flip it for profit!?

Update: Canada Post Potential Work Disruption & Delays through January 2019

Following five weeks of rotating strikes, Back-to-Work Legislation for Canadian Post employees to return to work has been passed by the Canadian Government effective on November 27th. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) have been on rotating strikes since October 22nd, and may continue to the fight the legislation that was recently passed.

Impact on our Canadian Customers:

The rotating legal strikes have created a severe backlog of mail and parcels, which is expected to grow even larger due to the increased volume of eCommerce over the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period. Delivery delays are expected to continue for the foreseeable future through the Holiday season and into January 2019.

While Canada Post is operational and working diligently to minimize service impacts, mail and parcels will be handled on a first-in, first-out basis. Even after striking stops and Canada Post stabilizes, mail and parcels recently shipped will still be subject to the same lengthy delays as mail and parcels shipped during the rotating strike period.

Because these delays will vary in length, COMC is unable to provide an accurate timeline for when orders placed to Canada may be delivered once they enter the Canada Post mail system. If these delays create a delivery inconvenience, we recommend taking advantage of COMC’s Buy Now, Ship Later functionality. With this feature, customers are able to purchase items, or transfer them from Upper Deck’s ePack Service, and request shipment at a later date once postal delays have been resolved.

If you do not yet have a COMC account, sign up for free here.

In the meantime, we encourage you to visit www.canadapost.ca/update to read about the latest developments and sign up for email updates.

If you have any questions, we’re here to help! Contact our Customer Service at staff@comc.com or 1-800-517-3540.

Thanks,

– The COMC Team

 

Previous Update from September 19th, 2018:

As you are likely aware, Canada Post services may experience a disruption as early as September 26 amid negotiations with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. In the event of a work disruption, COMC and Upper Deck e-Pack shipments to Canada will experience delays. Shipments will be held at our Burnaby, BC office and will be promptly shipped when work resumes.

Orders already in the Canada Post system during a work disruption will remain in their system until Canada Post resumes operations. Please anticipate delays in delivery times for these orders. Should the work disruption occur, we strongly recommend our Canadian customers take advantage of COMC’s unique service which allows customers with a COMC account to buy over time and ship everything together in a single shipment when Canada Post resumes operations.

Canadian sellers: You can either drop your consignment submissions off at COMC Canada in Burnaby, BC or use alternative carriers such as UPS, FedEx, and Canpar. There will be no service delays for cards stored remotely in Canada purchased by non-Canadian residents

blog email banner 3 - Shop Now

*** BLACK FRIDAY / CYBER MONDAY DEALS ARE NOW LIVE ****

Black Friday Kickoff Sale – November 23rd
Black Friday Weekend Sale – November 24th & 25th
Cyber Monday Last-Chance Sale – November 26th

Get ready to finish building your sets, add those missing pieces to your player collections, and find incredible savings over our four-day annual COMC Black Friday – Cyber Monday Sales Event! The sale kicks off this Friday (November 23rd) and the savings don’t end until the final minutes of Cyber Monday (Nov 26th).
We want to help you get the cards that you want at the prices that you want to pay! Our sellers will be cutting prices on items from your favorite teams, players, and sets all across the COMC Marketplace! Not only do we want you to find good deals, we also want to help you on the cost of shipping. With that being said….

Free Shipping All Weekend Long!

All orders of 25 or more items placed on COMC from November 23rd through 26th will be eligible to receive free shipping. Orders can be placed from a COMC shopping cart or from your COMC account. Orders that qualify for our Free Black Friday shipping promotion will ship on or before December 17th.
If using your COMC account, items must be purchased in Simplified Shipping Mode to qualify. All non-qualifying shipments of 25 cards or more will still receive free shipping, but will also incur regular per-item S&H fees (i.e. items purchased in Advanced Reseller Mode, transferred from ePack, or items consigned and being returned to the seller). Orders shipped to Canada will still be subject to the delivered duties paid fee.

The Advantages of Using Your COMC Account!

There are many advantages to using your COMC account, but perhaps the biggest advantage for COMC members during Black Friday is our buy now – ship later functionality. While you’re shopping on COMC, items in your shopping cart are not reserved, and can be purchased by other shoppers before you complete the checkout process for your order. Using your COMC account to instantly purchase items with store credit will prevent other shoppers from snagging those too-good-to-be-true deals before you can.
By using your COMC account and purchasing items using COMC Credit, you get to decide when you want your items shipped to you! This key feature is also perfect for pooling items together until you have enough items to qualify for our free shipping promotion!
With COMC Credit, you can buy a few items on Friday, a few more on Saturday and Sunday, and come back on Monday to scoop up a ton of last-minute deals. All of those items will stay safe within your COMC account until you’re ready to place a shipment request for them. You can place a shipment request for those items the next day, the next month, or even the next year! As long as you own them, and they’re in your COMC account, they’ll stay safe in our warehouse until you’re ready to take possession of them via a shipment request.
Don’t have a COMC account? Click Here to check out why you should have one and then create an account. It only takes a minute!

Three Free Sales Promotions for COMC Sellers!

Once again we’re giving COMC sellers not one, not two, but THREE free sales promotions to run throughout the Black Friday – Cyber Monday Sales Event. Starting with Black Friday (Nov 23rd), sellers will also be able to run sales throughout Black Friday Weekend (Nov 24th & 25th), and finally offer buyers one final chance to save during Cyber Monday (Nov 26th).
If you’re a COMC Seller and you haven’t already done so, you still have time to set up your FREE Sale Promotions now!

Exclusive Social Media Giveaways!

The best way to stay informed and up-to-date on COMC news and happening is by following our blog and social media pages! Throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday we’ll be offering our social media media followers a chance to win one of FOUR contests for some very cool cards & prizes. You’re not going to want to miss these giveaways! The only way to get involved in the action is to follow all three of our accounts above!
