So how do all of the new tiers and express / express plus affect older Fast Pass / Fast Press submissions?

I have a Fast Pass / Fast Press submission (21-34160D1 in case someone from CBCS is looking) from Sept that hasn't received a single update since Sept 22nd. Can that order qualify for some sort of money back guarantee?

I understand the huge backlog, I understand TATs are only estimates. But when you pay up extra money for a service, the very least thing that a service provider can do is keep you accurately up to date or answer an email. Just provide some transparency and real expectations.

@los2863 My November Fast Pass/Fast Press shows as in pressing - I would expect your September order to be somewhere in the Grading queue

@KatKomics Thank you for responding and providing something to gauge against, fingers crossed that you are right!

A lesson for CBCS, all @KatKomics did was respond with some sort of expectation and it gave me a little hope.

@SlayerRick710 I think in the past someone said that imaging is the last thing that happens before shipping, so that book might be done soon. If others are in "pre-grading" there's no way to tell without knowing what tier you used and when you sent them.

So my book went to grading I have to say this here so everyone can see it the C.S. Team is awsome when you talk to them but getting to them can be tricky. They canceled a book n for me as the pressing currently has no fast pass options. Will send that book with the other raw when they are done grading and my books in grading status now!

My books we received this past Tuesday and are now in labels. Yes I picked the express option, that's fast!

My September order with Fastpass and press has been in greeting since Tuesday oh, so I'm likely to get the other submission first.

mine have sat in labels for 3 months once it's gets to that stage, which is post grading-room. One order hit labels December 16th-ish and I received around March 12th. The other hit labels around March 16th and is currently in heatseal (switched over sometime this week). I expect them back in the next two weeks...so 3 months in labels seems to be the current time for non-fast anything.

I'm interested to see what happens with my express order submitted at a con. One of the booth guys said I should combine my express with a slab only/art label second order. I said "is that going to hold up my express getting back to me as express I'm paying $40.00 for". He said "no". I appreciate them thinking of saving me the money on shipping, but not really saving money if combining them kills my express TAT that I paid an extra $20/book to get x 9 books (or $180) to save just under $30 on shipping back the 3-book slab-only. I'm more testing it out, but I'll be fairly irritated if it becomes an issue since the combo was suggested by and assured by an employee.

@SlayerRick710 raw grade basically just means they don't slab it, but otherwise it goes through all the same steps as any other book. Take the same tier grading time and subtract ... some amount of time.

I think I may have asked this before, but when I open the Print Invoice/real status link, I get "ImagingSP".

Does that mean one of the books is potentially targeted for the Featured page?
None of the 2 books is particularly "wow factor"; is not 9.9/10; and I didn't ask for Add-On pictures so not sure with certainty what it might be?

One is Strain 1 signed by Guillermo del Toro
The other is Negan Lives signed by Jeff Dean Morgan.
They're nice comics but don't seem to be in-line with what I typically see on Featured which is high grade keys or 9.9/10 comics

@Nuffsaid111 - Typically, yes. It has happened to me 5 times. Once cause i paid extra for it. Once cause it came standard with 1 day Tier. Twice cause CBCS chose the comic for “Featured Comics” page. And once, was a mystery, nothing.

@scifinator do you know usually when does those books hit the featured page cause I'm curious cause the book I sent in wasn't a key just a book autographed bu Ray Park I just want to see how high it got graded.

@SlayerRick710 - if i recall, on of mine was in imaging for about a week before it went to Featured and the other was a few weeks. Keep in mind that the mystery one never made it to Featured and no photo ever showed in the Graders Notes like the other four.

.......... and do the Economy route with both pressing and grading.

And go to sleep like Rip Van Winkle for 20 years.
They'll be ready by then

At worst, they'll "be working on it"

He has the unfair advantage of knowing how terrible the service is.

Just submit like 800 Express books at the same time so you can indefinitely delay your own Economy books.

@beastboy1980

I would be shocked if they were.

I have 5 orders (1 per month) since Sept 5 2021. All marked as received still. Last I saw on this board was someone saying theirs has just started grading and that order was for August 2021.
