Re-Introducing CBCS' Slab-Only Option!11821

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
@noahjdorsey @GAC I got this book in my latest mail call. It's a book I have fond memories of from my childhood and took the opportunity to get it signed by the artist at a local convention. If CBCS would expand the Slab-Only option to include Witnessed Signatures, I totally would've used it for this book and possibly other well-loved books from my childhood!

@GAC Those are some awesome books! Hopefully it all goes smoothly!

@dielinfinite Thanks! I hope so as well. I confirmed with customer service that slab only/vsp is $20 per signature. I wrote SUPPORT THE HOBBY on the invoice so hopefully the 20% get applied.

I don't really collect modern comics but this service is perfect for these kinds of books with signatures one wants verified.

@GAC Good luck with the discount. It was supposed to run until the end of April so there's a chance it won't be applied

@dielinfinite Steve Borock extended the discount through to the end of May on his YouTube interview.

@dielinfinite Steve announced it on Saturday so it was already May so it should run the entire month.

Neat, I hadn't seen that. I'll have to see if I have anything else to submit

@SpiderTim It was announced several weeks ago when CBCS was re-opening so it sounds like Steve extended it an extra month

I appreciate other forum users sharing this cool info. But I have not yet seen in print any public confirmation from CBCS reps confirming... can someone from CBCS, @SBorock @Darryl_H confirm the May 20% off sale (and what it includes) and the fact that Slab Only option includes one signature verification? (I was the one on FB that mentioned I got charged $45 for a Slab Only with VSP)

@GAC Just to be clear on parsing Darryl's sentence there, it's $20 for the service and shipping costs are extra.

@noahjdorsey Like I told @GAC earlier, I'm pretty sure a lot of these details weren't ironed out until I started asking so hopefully now things go smoother as I did get all my information direct from Darryl so I have confidence in the information provided and as a result of my asking he did say he would reach out to try to get the website updated.

@dielinfinite Correct...$20 for the service and additional charge for shipping.

The Youtube interview stated the SUPPORTTHEHOBBY promo code would be extended throughout May. I believe Steve stated it was 20% (an increase from 15% in April).

Also, I just confirmed one more detail with @Darryl_H.

If you have a signed slab-only book and you want it graded after the fact, you add the book to the invoice as a normal blue label and then on the invoice just write a note to the effect of “keep verified red label signature.”

So in essence you’re only paying whatever the grading fees would be for the book and not repaying any sort of fees for the red label, since you’ve already paid for the signature verification

I misspoke, it's 15%, not 20%.

15% is a fantastic offer! What I was wondering is if it applied to all type of accounts?

@SpiderTim Yes, just make sure you write SUPPORT THE HOBBY on your invoice.

@GAC I think the underlying question was if the 15% promo stacks on top of the member discount. I could've sworn it was either/or but can you confirm that they do?

Yes, the 15% discount is applied to your grading costs (including signature verification, but not shipping) based on whatever your costs are - member or non-member.
This is from my latest Order:

Cost
$203.00
Fees
($30.45)
S&H
$35.00
Total
$207.55
Payments
$207.55
Balance
$0.00

@dielinfinite I do believe the discount code is on top of membership discount...I think I remember someone asking this. I believe @esaravo has a paid membership and he is getting the discount too. Ed, can you confirm you're a paid membership receiving your discount and also receiving the write in discount?

TRA LA LA esaravo private msg quote post Address this user
@GAC - That is correct. I just renewed my Bronze Membership, so the $203.00 was the original cost with my membership discount, then the 15% is applied to that figure for the Promotional Discount.

What I wanted to confirm is that dealer accounts also get the discount. They have a higher discount already.

I can't say anything about dealers, but like @esaravo I got the discount on top of my membership pricing. It did only come off the price of grading though, not my press screening or shipping. I assume whenever I get charged for whatever pressing they do, it will be at full cost.

@SpiderTim can't answer on dealer accounts...maybe @Darryl_H can chime in.

Just a side question here....Does CBCS accept deliveries on Saturdays? USPS is showing me my expected delivery date is Saturday May 16. Will someone be there to accept it?

We are closed, so most likely it will have to be re-delivered on Monday.
