I plan to do just that. I'm also sending in some cards now (thanks to you!) I'm hoping I can generate some sales from those to pay for my shipping.

What's the bulk cost, or is $25 the bulk shipping?

Bulk is $16, like XL5 said. There's no way in hell I want these black bordered cards coming without a sleeve though.

I mailed the discount card out to you on Thursday. Is your mail service any good? Hopefully, it gets to you tomorrow.

You're assuming the sellers would accept your offers...basically you want cards on there cheaper, you're not benefitting the sellers.

That's why I always try to buy a few from one seller, so I'm more likely to get a discount. My only pet peeve is when someone lists something near, at, or more than full book, because it makes it much harder to make a reasonable offer on it. Other than that, COMC has been great for me.
Why would that be a "pet peeve"? Do you not think the seller deserves to get "near or at book value"? The name of the game when you are a seller is to get the most you can for your item. If you (the seller) are listing your items at book or slightly below and I want those items, I am content to pay "what an item is worth".

Going to be 21 days for my order to arrive from last weekend. Even with a few days of snow, thats WAY WAY EXCESSIVE.

How is that the case? I have had 2 Kolbrin Vitek autos shipped within 2 days. They do ship everything first class in a bubble mailer.

I agree with benshobbies - what are you talking about? Is this 21 days for a COMC shipment? Or 21 for a Sportlots? Or 21 otherwise?

My longest COMC wait ever was like 7 shipping days. I'm real curious to hear how someone waited 14 days longer.

Read my post, and check their site. They are "behind" because of the snow and now because they are "short" on staff. So... The order I placed on the 14th of January has YET TO SHIP. NOW, they have a note on there that says processing times for "standard" shipments is being increased to 7 days packaging time. So to do the math, it will be 14 days BEFORE MY STUFF IS EVEN IN THE MAIL! On top of that, 3-7 days transit time and you have.... 17-21 days.

Ive bought your stuff on there before, and usually its not this bad but it indeed seems to get worse. Somehow their staffing issues are the buyers problem. I detailed above how my package will indeed take up to 21 days.

I know I live in Canada and everything but they quote 4 - 6 weeks for shipping here which is a pretty long time.

Shipping Status & New Options CheckOutMyCards.com Blog

There is a link. How about instead of creating new shipping options, work on shipping stuff you are behind on? So basically they are saying even though I ordered a week ago, someone else can order on Monday and get the stuff shipped about 7 days ahead of mine. Yuck.
