Follow the instructions for the item about mailing address.

Submitted by shenran on Thu, 02/09/2012 - 13:47

They need to change the color of the names to RED just like the Japanese V-Jump edition card packs.
Now that they will be stop making print issues, I hope they still send out promo cards to subscribers.

Submitted by StarterSteel on Mon, 02/13/2012 - 10:10

I have a free subscription for renewing my Shonen Jump, do I recive the promos as well & how would I subscribe again?

Submitted by Phoenix6000 on Wed, 02/15/2012 - 12:27

Now that I've switched and my membership has been renewed for Alpha, how long until the first promo (Number 16: Shock Ruler, according to your facebook) ships?

Submitted by Armel on Wed, 02/15/2012 - 21:28

If I call with a Card Promo code and subscribe for a full year, will I get the 2 free cards and the extra four? Or would I need to get exclusively the Alpha year subscription?

Submitted by John Bae on Fri, 02/17/2012 - 15:35

The two-card promo pack was for print subscriptions only.

Submitted by SoraFireSoul on Fri, 02/17/2012 - 14:46

Submitted by John Bae on Fri, 02/17/2012 - 15:35

ALPHA promo cards have not been sent out yet.

Submitted by Trunks20 on Fri, 02/17/2012 - 19:15

Yeah I wonder when those cards are coming out and what they could be, one of them I hear is an up to date version of Slyther like they did with Obelisk and Ra, I only have Ra and I wish to have the Slyther card.

Submitted by Bob1200 on Wed, 03/07/2012 - 15:56

Dude, Its Slifer, Not Slyther, lol

Submitted by Estadt on Mon, 03/19/2012 - 23:10

Submitted by Bob1200 on Thu, 03/22/2012 - 12:34

Thats In Japan...Not America...

Submitted by Estadt on Fri, 04/06/2012 - 12:58

I have said since the mime played the card the first time. I will never accept the naming of an Egyptian God after some loser [Roger Slifer] who wants to be remembered through the morons that watch this show that don't know any better. [Morons referring specifically to people that actually refuse to accept the REAL name of Osiris after being told.]

Submitted by bleachnaruto5 on Sun, 02/26/2012 - 05:48

what the heck is zexal!!

Submitted by Bob1200 on Thu, 03/08/2012 - 13:44

Zexal Is The New Series After 5D's, lol

Submitted by Trunks20 on Mon, 03/26/2012 - 07:19

Zexal is the next point in the series taking place further into the future with ground dueling becoming popular though at the same the main protagonist is a rookie duelist with hopes of making the big leagues though one day encounters a powerful league duelist and during their duel he encounters an amensiac dimensial spirit guide who requires the hero's help to restore his memory by gathering the "Numbers" type XYZ cards and at the same time his invisible guide offers dueling advice during points of duel looking tough.

Submitted by zerodyme87 on Sun, 02/26/2012 - 09:00

so i finally converted to alpha, will i still recieve the gift of the four cards?

Submitted by John Bae on Thu, 03/01/2012 - 12:56

Cards are delivered throughout the year. Depending on how long your membership is, you will get the cards that are released during that time. For example, some transferred subscriptions that last six months will receive 2/3 cards, depending on when their membership expires. Does that make sense?

Submitted by Sdh4a on Tue, 02/28/2012 - 17:57

Do we receive the promo for each account? Or for each order on the account? For example I was receiving 40 magazines on my account, so will I receive 40 cards or should I take the 328 dollar refund because I know this card isn't worth that much lol.

Submitted by Bob1200 on Thu, 03/08/2012 - 13:46

I Think Its Just For 1 Account, lol Btw, How Do U Recieve 40 Magazines? lol And More Than Likely U Won't Recieve 40 Cards, lol U Get 4 Cards A Year, lol And Y Did U Pay 328 Dollars? o.O
