Local News - 30% Off Codeword Sale - No Auction This Saturday
I want to start today by quickly mentioning that we have postponed this weekend's
no-minimum-bid auction until December 17th. There were several reason for us choosing to delay this
auction, not the least of which was our desire to have it be our very best auction of the year. Our
mid-December auction has always been filled with hundreds of potential presents and stocking stuffers,
but we are going all-out this year to provide everyone who attends an awesome selection of great gifts
to choose from, at nominal prices. The December 17th auction will begin at 11:30 AM, at our
location. Bring the kids, as we will have several groups of auction items just for them, as well as
free refreshments and Christmas cookies.
In other news, my beloved wife, Nanette, is going in for hip-replacement on Tuesday. Aside from her
personal concerns, Nanette expressed to me earlier this week that she wanted me to make certain that we
had plenty of orders coming in from our online business while she was laid up, so she would not have to
worry about the company bills getting paid. With that thought in mind, I went ahead yesterday and announced
a special 30% off NANETTE3 codeword sale on all of our
back issue comics and magazines
to our worldwide fan base. That sale has absolutely blown up, with more orders being received via
during the past twelve hours, as during the past twelve days!
All of the above having been said, I am often asked if our online discounts can apply in
our retail stores.
The answer (this time) is Yes! But, and I really have to emphasize this BUT, it is totally your responsibility
to ask for the 30% off NANETTE3 codeword discount before we ring up your purchase. If you do not ask our
clerk for your discount at the time of purchase, you will not receive the discount, even if you remember
later. The reason for this firm policy is that this codeword discount is a reward to you specifically for
being a member of this newsletter group. Given that you take the time to read my weekly messages, I am
perfectly happy to allow you the same 30% off on our
as our online clients. I cannot afford to extend that same courtesy to everyone walking in the door,
however, so please do remember to ask for your NANETTE3 discount when checking out.

I do want to also mention that the 30% off NANETTE3 codeword discount applies to all of our
back issue comics and magazines
excluding only new issues, our CGC's, and a few variants. There are also a handful of comics in our showcases at
that are "net price only," which cannot be discounted. On the flip side, however, most of the
back issue comics
currently on sale in Jason St. have incorrect prices, as they were stickered before our massive price decrease
went into effect in early October. What we are currently doing to solve this mismatch is to first reprice all
at the front counter to current pricing, and then providing the 30% off NANETTE codeword discount as an
additional benefit. Simply put, our prices on back issue comics have not been this low in years.
The end of the Ocean of comics at Jason St.
I will close by mentioning that the initial online response to the NANETTE3 codeword sale has been so robust
that I am already contemplating ending this sale early. If you want to receive 30% off on
I encourage you to visit your favorite
Mile High Comics location
as soon as possible, by this weekend if you can. Nuff said.

P.S. I was out this morning helping Jim Scharper's
"Feeding Denver's Hungry"
volunteers distribute $2,500 in donated corporate gift cards to the homeless in lower downtown. I personally
contributed 175 brand new pairs of gloves to this effort, which were also very well received. If you would
like to help those in need prepare for the bitter weather to come, please drop off your donations of warm
weather clothing to any of our
Mile High Comics locations.
We especially need new socks, and used coats, sweaters, blankets, hats, boots, scarves, etc. I will personally
be helping to distribute these much-needed items to homeless teens and disabled adults on Christmas Day...
Passing out gift cards to a huge crowd!
