Default Cryptozoic NPN

Just reaching out to see if anyone else has been receiving any NPN's from Crypto lately. I have only seen winnings from October in the last 5 months. Nothing for Sept., Nov., Dec. or Jan. Anyone else in the same boat? I send in a minimum of 11 NPN per set.

Sorry I cant help answer your question, but I've always been curious -- How do you submit these? Just an envelope with an index card with whichever specific info they need on it?

Nothing.

However, mid-2016 the NPN stuff really slid down as to what they were giving away. I think they are just focusing on giving things away via social media rather than NPN.

The cheapest way is to buy postage paid post cards from the post office.

Same here. Its a bit disappointing. I'm fairly diligent about writing in. I tweeted George @ Crypto and asked if they were still doing it and he said yes. Not sure what's going on.

I'm in the same boat.
I mail between 5-20 postcards a month;
Nothing since October.

In the past, they have got backlogged, & then blitzed 3-months worth over a short timeframe. Let's hope they continue their NPN generosity.

It used to be REALLY successful years back but at some point it stopped (or just became near impossible) in getting anything in the mail. Now I'd suggest people not even try it, not worth the time, money or effort

We're behind schedule but Cryptozoic is still conducting its NPN program.

I kind of figured they were behind, but wanted to hear what others would say. As C-Mixer stated, Crypto has gotten behind, and then would get 3 months of NPN's out in about a month. Just wanted to make sure. Thanks mgeo for the update.

The post office was always like wtf, who do you want these prepaid postcards? They'd only have like 5 in stock. So I usually had to just cut postcard size cardstock and stick on stamp on them. Lol. Havent in forever tho. Should try again if it's till up and running.

I'm pretty sure you can order them online

Probably. I just have to take them to the post office to mail them so it would be nice if they stocked them. Haha. Thanks for the tip. Honestly I think I stopped because while it's NPN, a months worth of daily cards for a few sets really adds up. I won a wardrobe and 2 inserts. I'm not complaining. It's fun. But for that I figured I'd spend the $20 worth of postcards on a wardrobe I wanted. Tho I think some people have won some really nice cards.

If you go to non-sports forum, there have been a lot of really great cards given away including top artists sketches and top autographs. I've never received anything other than an insert, but I never did a great job staying on top of the submissions and only ever did DC sets.

I've always used 4X6 index cards and bought the post card stamps. Cheapest way to go and they make it. Crypto has been awesome over the years. Aside from me getting cards I needed for sets, both relic/auto & insert, I have received some amazing cards including a Walking Dead Season 2 sketch and most recently a Supernatural Genevieve Padalecki auto. Seems 1 or 2 months a year, I get lucky with a sweet hit. But even if I don't get that big hit, it's fun getting random cards that sometimes I need.

Thanks Crypto!
Bill

The postage paid postcards are actually the same price as the stamps.

I had been wondering the same thing! It's good to hear that they are working on it.
