Nice! My only question is where was this advertised? I don't understand why they keep dropping the ball. This should be in every person's email that has joined CBCS. It's just like that survey they sent out. I did the survey and never received the discount for completing it. Oh well, I give them a C+ for effort.

I received in an emsil.
My assumption is that it would be on Facebook. (I do not do social media)

In the past. Emails of promos slowly trickled to a lot of folks.

Im about to submit books for the first time with CBCS (all my others have been at cons). I was about to drop them in the mail last week but something came up.

That's what I thought. I even checked my spam/junk before I posted. I've been a member since August of 2014 and it just drives me nuts that these mistakes are being made.

@Gamecube2482

Yes. It states HANDWRITTEN. no idea why that is do important but they say that on all promos.

To read for yourself. 2nd image immediately following the blue cbcs email address.

@OGJackster

I can definitely see why you would be annoyed. I dont do social media or check their website daily. If not for the emails and kindness of the forum sharing information, I would imagine I would have missed a promo or 2.

While this may not be a viable solution, perhaps an email requesting to be added to their newsletter emails?

Aside from that, I have no idea what else to say or suggest....

This is cool. I’d totally jump on this. My next submission includes an ASM #5 but it also includes two magazines, so, I gotta go to the other guys.

Unless CBCS does magazines #soon.

Didn’t get this one. Sometimes they’re in my in-box, sometimes they’re in my junk folder, & sometimes get nothing.

CBCS reps have told me it’s an issue with Hotmail. But I get order updates & message board notifications fine.

I figured it ran deeper than that. It’s just what they told me.

I got an email today. I use gmail which categorizes emails by primary, social and promotions. This email is listed under my promotions tab. I'm assuming this can't be combined with the $25 off coupon CBCS sent earlier this year for all submissions received by 12-31-19.

I also never received my $25 off for the survey, even after contacting Customer Service & being told it would be re-sent.

I never received the survey, so I guess I'm not on the top tier list.

I've got a yahoo address and have not had any problem getting CBCS emails, until this one. It went to my spam folder.

I don't like receiving unsolicited emails. I don't believe in a "push" system of marketing.
The site should have an RSS feed for all promo specials and let people subscribe to the RSS feed. That way I can have my email program (Thunderbird) check the feed and grab all the updates like an email. The difference is, I can unsubscribe or re-subscribe as the whim entertains me. That way only the customers that are interested will get the announcements.

I typically don't even read CBCS emails. Instant delete. An ad isn't going to "sell" me on anything.
