Hey Tim,

Great Idea...for the Football promo to kickoff the Football season. How bout adding the Top 5 Fantasy players to the list. You can get an average by visiting a few sites and then takking the top 5 players or how bout players from last years Super bowl teams or perhaps players involved in Monday night football games for the month of September. Just some thoughts for some fun promos. Keep up the great work.

I loved the last time you ran the priority promo. I think $.10/card for the promo is a good idea and I have a few suggestions:
  • 1950's and 1960's Baseball (keep building this segment with the new sellers)
  • 2009 Football Autos and Game Used
  • Any card with at least a $30 Book Value
  • Super Premium products such as Exquisite

Hey Tim,

I like the promotions you have spoke of thus far. I have thought of a few ideas. Maybe every month or every other month run a special to send in 300 cards get 100 processed free or 200/50 or something like that.

Like my first idea maybe as sellers reachs certain amount of cards sent in they get so many free cards processed free or half price in there next shippment. Example Say I sent in 400 cards on time, then 300, then another300 later to make me reach the 1000 cards processed level. Maybe give a discount or some amount of cards processed for free on your next shipment.

Also this one might be a llittle difficult but run a standard ongoing promotion that allows you to send in any sport's new release within the first month of release and get priority service at .10 a card but the cards must be sorted with only that specific release and no other cards can be mixed in with that batch. This would make it easy on COMC when it comes to listing and give the seller an incentive to send stuff in right away.

May I suggest Daequan Cook as one of the players added to the promo list this month? I'm about to send in my personal collection to the site, and have about 100 autos/GU's of his... it would help out greatly!

So yeah, add Daequan!

Instead of just Topps Chrome football how about changing it to Chrome so you include Bowman Chrome too.

I'd like to see a basketball promotion for Oct maybe players from last years conference finals teams, rookie cards from the 90s, autographs from the 50 greatest players.

I wish comc would implement a filter system when searching for cards. For example, if I only want to see cards with a bv of $5 of more, 85% off or better, then I simply fill out the filter form. Maybe this could be an advanced search option form that you fill out, with the link right under the regular search box. Also include the option to hide all items that are your own.

I like the idea of free processing on the top 5 fantasy players also...

I would also like to see baseball award winner frontrunners like MVP, CY (Pujols, Teixeira, Jeter, Mauer, Beckett, Lincecum, etc)....if not this month maybe for October.

Is it possible to not show cards you have marked ready to ship when selecting Only show cards flagged "Not For Sale". There is already an option to show cards that are ready to ship.
My cards have still not been corrected! I am half way to being charged storage fees for the cards

I am also still getting cards that I have not flagged "Not For Sale" showing up under that option.

If you are still looking for ideas for specials I would recommend hockey cards, any and all

Tim

Question and/or suggestion for you. Is there any way to at least make an offer valid for a minimum 24 hours before they could be canceled? Not sure how common this is, but it seems almost daily I get offers made and canceled within minutes of someone making them. Most I might consider (some are low ball offers), but just a request.

I think it would be cool if when you could search for "auto" the base cards from the sets with the word autograph wouldnt show up. I dont know exactly how to get around this but I do know everytime I search and I see that Big Country Bryant Reeves signature rookies autobilia for 25 cents Im like and want to buy it then I see its not the actual autographed card and Im like
lol

Default Suggestions

A couple ideas for future features on the site or bulk editor:

1. be able to seach your inventory for cards that are not the lowest price available. (could be added to pulldown tab from site or bulk editor). This would be my biggest time saver on the site as I like to be competitive in my pricing.

2. top 10 or top 100 sorts of most active cards sold in the past 90 days. can be by individual card, player, or set. this would help determine what to send in.

Also, for the flippers and bulk rate shippers, I lowered many $3 and $4 cards down to 25 cents.

Thanks for the great site Tim!

PS. My shortlist to buy is 1971 topps baseball #648. I'm willing to pay $10 for a non-creased card. Also willing to drop $200 on a Kobe Bryant RC Chrome.

Tim, not trying to take advantage of your generosity, but for the Topps Chrome Football special, would that include uncirculated cards? I know those typically cost more. I am putting together the 2007 Uncirculated Red Refractor set and have a bunch of extras that I would send in.
Thanks again for a great site.

No basketball, and no Daequan Cook! Haha, that's ok though, nice promos! I do wish I had waited a few more weeks to send in my 100+ A&G.

Default Storage fees

Hey Tim,

I've emailed your staff (staff@checkoutmycards.com) numerous times and even called in 3 times since March. The problem can't be too difficult to fix as you've fixed it before for another seller(http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/e...tml#post195269).


Here is the situation, my cards were sent out on October 28th of last year. On your blog (Graded Cards & Lower Processing Fees CheckOutMyCards.com Blog) you state that any cards sent before November 1st, 2008 were exempt from storage fees until Jan. 1st, 2011.
I clearly meet this criteria but I've been charged storage fees on the cards I've sent in on Oct. 28, 2008 since March 1st.


I know you're a busy guy and you're doing great stuff, but I've patiently waited 6 months now. Can you please correct this situation and reverse the fees for the cards sent from that shipment? (There are 6 cards being appropriately charged a storage fee.)
My username is also DFlash on your site.


Thank you!

James
