It is time to begin the shopping nightmare known as Black Friday. Out of the major card companies only Panini and Press Pass are offering something special to collectors, though there are a number of online card retailers that are offering deals. I will cover Press Pass’ Black Friday promotion today and hit on Panini’s Black Friday promotion tomorrow.
Press Pass actually is offering a dual-promotion that runs from November 19th through December 9th and is targeting both retail and hobby products.
The Retail Promotion requires a collector to purchase $40 worth of Press Pass retail products from either Wal-Mart and/or Target before Sunday December 9th, 2012. To take part you need to make your purchases and submit your original receipts to Press Pass through mail or email. Receipts can be submitted electronically (sent to firstname.lastname@example.org) or by mail (Press Pass, Inc. Attn: Black Friday, 9805 Northcross Center Court, Suite H, Huntersville, NC 28078 and postmarked by December 9th).
In return you will receive a special gift pack, which will have a minimum retail value of $20 (I am guessing a blaster box), and you will also be entered in to a raffle with the Grand Prize winner receiving a hobby half-case of 2012 FanFare.
The Hobby Promotion runs the same time period, 11/19-12/9, but requires the collector to take a photograph of themselves holding a hobby box of 2013 Press Pass Racing, Sports Town Football or Press Pass Legends Hall of Fame Edition in front of the card shop where they purchased the box. When you submit the photo you will be entered in to a raffle with the winner receiving a hobby half-case of 2012 FanFare Racing, Sports Town Football, or Press Pass Legends Hall of Fame Edition. If you win you can select which product you receive.
To take part you need to submit the photo of you with the box at the card shop through mail, email or through their Facebook. Photos can be submitted via email (email@example.com), by mail (Press Pass, Inc. Attn: Black Friday, 9805 Northcross Center Court, Suite H, Huntersville, NC 28078 and postmarked by December 17, 2012), or you can upload them to their Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/PressPassInc).
