So wait, 10FOR25 Hastings variant sales713

COLLECTOR kaptainmyke private msg quote post Address this user
Are these all the time?!!

So I can buy multiple separate $25 orders. I just got 20 variant covers at hastings using code 10FOR25 twice on 2 different orders. These comics are 1 in 25 covers, or 1 in 30 covers. Many are virgin covers or sketch covers regularly $29.99 usually. (sort by highest to lowest first)
So if I get them graded at 9.2 or whatever I could sell these potentially for $50-$75?

It costs $24 to grade a modern book.
These cost me only $2.50 each.
$30 each graded and slabbed total cost.

Profit. How many of you are doing this? I'd like to know because I have some free time on my hands.

Use that link and change sorting to "highest to lowest" price and buy 1 of each different cover. They won't let you do 10 of the same one but if you mix and match and come back for a different order you can buy different or same ones again.

Also you can try "Specials" at top of page and click "Coupons" on drop down and the deal is towards the bottom, 4th or 5th one from the bottom up

Is it only on books in that link, or any comics?

I'm pretty sure Hasting exclusive variants are excluded.

Hmmm... I have tried a few different combos with no luck. I will have to make sure I am not putting any of those in

Has to be only the variants on that link.
Sort "Highest to Lowest" under price.
Attempt the highest ones not SOLD OUT.
If you try exclusives to hastings it doesn't work.
You have to do 10 different issues.
You cannot attempt 10 of the same book.
One "deal" of 10 per cart.
Enter code "10FOR25" on final checkout screen.

Oh, OK... I got super excited for a minute. That sounded like a great deal, but unfortunately, I did not find any on that link.

Just a heads up, some of the books on Hastings have the wrong cover art displayed, like the regular cover instead of the variant. You will however receive the correct variant cover and not the regular. This confused the hell out of me this morning when my order from last week came in. Another thing, books will ship in different packages from different locations.

Most were probably 9.6 or better, one or two were probably closer to to 9.4 or 9.2 due to shelf wear. Some of the polybags are rough, you can tell some of these were sitting on store racks for awhile. Overall I'm happy, I got several books that are easily $16-$20 raw books for $2.50 each.

I wonder if this will be a regular event or deal they offer to get rid of large quanities of unsold books online. Seems like a win win business model for everyone, the store and comic dealers.

The reason they're having this sale is because they filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Hastings has put everything on sale because they are bankrupt.

I've made 3 total orders:

30 variant comics total, retail of $949.75
3 x 10 for $25 = $75 total free shipping

At least half of these can be graded and slabbed, to be sold on ebay for $100+ each. That inversion cover for Avengers/X-Men Axis is expensive!

I put in an order.

There is a Hastings one town over. I attempted to purchase 2 statues as they are buy one get one 1/2 off and do an in store pick-up as the both were at that store. The website informed me that the promotion isn't good for store pick-ups. They must be making a killing on shipping. Can't figure why they wouldn't honor it for any other reason.

I ordered 10 after reading this thread... Some to collect and some to flip locally.
The 10 books arrived in 5 different shipments with two books consisting of only a bag/board and bubble mailer.

My books ranged from VFNM to NM+ & oddly one bubble mailer with a slash in it yielded a beautiful NM+ copy of Black Science 2
