*** 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.
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).
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!

We are about three months way from our annual Black Friday – Cyber Monday sale, our BIGGEST sale of the year! Buyers turn out in record numbers each and every Black Friday Sale, making this the most opportune time to be a seller on COMC. In order to ensure that our sellers have the best experience possible, here are some helpful tips and our processing postal deadlines to make sure that you get your consignment submissions submitted in time to be listed for sale during Black Friday.
Processing Postal Deadlines
Bolstering your inventory with fresh, new cards is a sure-fire way to attract more eyes to your COMC seller page. We want to make sure that you have ample time to prepare for the upcoming Black Friday sales period. Below is a schedule of when COMC needs to receive your consignment submissions in order to be posted in time for Black Friday. This means that your submissions should be in the mail prior to these dates to ensure that they are delivered to COMC on or before the dates below.
Basic Service: September 20th. Current Year Basic: October 20th. Select Service: November 6th Current Year Select:November 13th Premium Service: November 15th
Competitively Price Your Current Inventory!
Are your items competitively priced to sell on COMC? The best way to ensure that your existing inventory doesn’t become too stale is to get in a good habit of routinely spot checking your prices against others selling similar items. From within your inventory manager, sort your inventory by ‘Price Modified Long Ago’ to view your items that may have outdated asking prices.
