Spring is here and we must be crazy or downright stupid — some kind of fools, if you will — to bring you an amazing deal like this! If you've already joined our 20/20 Club for loyal customers, right now you get an extra 10% off your base discount of 20%, for a total of 30% off, through April 1, 2013! And if you're not a member yet, join now and you'll automatically get the 30% discount off everything else you add to your shopping cart! This is not a prank, hoax or imaginary story!
"What is the 20/20 Club?" you may be asking. It's our special program to reward our frequent customers — the cost is just $20 to join and membership gives you a 20% discount and free standard domestic shipping (or half off standard international shipping) across the board on all of your orders! We did the math and with the discount and shipping deal the Club pays for itself with a purchase regularly priced at just $60, and if you spend $100 or more in a year, you get a free automatic renewal. Basically, if you play it right, you can get membership, and all its benefits, for life at no extra cost! See all the club terms and details here.
And, for the next 4 days only, you get an extra bonus discount! Take advantage of our foolishness while you can!
It's a new year and we've got a hangover. No, not an alcohol-induced one — a hangover of past years' books in our warehouse taking up room that we need for our incredible slate of 2010 releases. Help us blow them out by taking 20% OFF everything on our website (including our already-discounted clearance items) starting now through January 8, 2010! Just use the coupon code HANGOVER when you check out and you'll receive 20% off everything in your order. (If you prefer to shop by phone, just mention this offer when you call — 1-800-657-1100 or 206-524-1967 outside the U.S. — next Monday-Friday.) 20/20 Club members get a double discount of 36%, so join up if you haven't already. Shop shop shop!
20/20 Club members: check your inbox for details on how you can have a chance to buy one of a scant handful of recently-unearthed copies of the outrageously out-of-print #$@&! The Official Lloyd Llewellyn Collection by Daniel Clowes! Plus there's an incredible bonus if you combine it with an order of $100 or more. All the details are in the email; if you're a 20/20 Club member and you don't receive the email, for pete's sake write me at "mbaehr" at this here "fantagraphics.com" domain before the end of the week so I can add you to our mailing list and send you all the details.
Everyone else: we'll have another semi-related contest next week featuring an even rarer Lloyd Llewellyn collectible, so be on the lookout for an announcement because you'll have to act fast. And if you're not a 20/20 Club member yet, this is the kind of crazy exclusive offer we'll throw at you every once in a while, in addition to all the usual benefits (20% off, breaks on shipping), once you sign up...
So you've missed our holiday shipping deadlines but you still want to give the gift of comics this year... what to do? How about a gift membership to the Fantagraphics 20/20 Club? Your lucky and grateful recipient will get 20% savings on all their Fantagraphics purchases plus free shipping (within the U.S.; half off for international) and other perks! Just give us the recipient's name, address, e-mail address and phone number when you place your order. If you're already a member, you know how great the program is; if you're not, read up on the details -- you'll want to get a membership for yourself, too!
Today is my birthday and you get the presents! Starting now, and for one week only, the 20/20 Club is the 20/30 Club: members get 30% OFF instead of the usual 20%! This applies to everything on our site: new stuff, old stuff, exclusive stuff, you name it. And just in time for early holiday shopping! Here's how it works:
If you are a current 20/20 Club member and we have your email address, check your inbox for a message from me. This message includes a special Members-only coupon code for you to use to get your additional discount. (This will actually take 12.5% off your already-discounted price; when you do the math, it comes to 30% total.) If we don't have your email address or you didn't get the message for some reason, contact us and we will send the coupon code to you (and add you to our exclusive 20/20 Club mailing list so you can get more special offers, unless you ask us not to).
If you sign up online for the 20/20 Club while this offer is going on, unfortunately we can't apply the extra 10% to your first online order, but we will send you your own one-time-use extra-10% coupon that you can use on your next order any time before Jan. 1, 2009. And if you prefer not to shop online, our customer service folks can apply your discount over the phone at 1-800-657-1100 or 206-524-1967 outside the US.
This special offer ends 11:59 PM Pacific time on Sunday October 26, so get shopping!
Important news for our overseas customers: since the U.S. Postal Service no longer offers Surface Mail to international addresses, we can no longer offer this service to our customers. We looked far and wide to find the most affordable alternative, and effective immediately, our standard shipping option for most orders to addresses outside North America will be Global Mail, a service of DHL. Delivery times for this service are in the 2-3 week range. (The smallest and largest orders will be sent Air Mail.)
We have also reconfigured our international Air Mail shipping charges, and we're happy to say that in some cases they are lower than before!
For 20/20 Club members, this unfortunately means that we can no longer offer free shipping outside the U.S. However, we still want to be able to offer you a good deal on shipping, so effective immediately we will be offering 50% OFF our regular international rates for 20/20 Club members. We've crunched the numbers and by offering 50% off the regular rates we are able to provide you with roughly the same amount of savings as you would get with free Surface Mail shipping, with the advantage that you'll receive your order much sooner!
