There have been numerous comments and posts regarding the promo cards. Hopefully this answers everything:

1. When will I get SHOCK MASTER?
If you signed up to be an SJ ALPHA member before April 20, 2012, you will get SHOCK MASTER. For those that qualify, SHOCK MASTER will be sent out sometime around May to June.

2. When is the next promo card coming out?
The next card, SLIFER THE SKY DRAGON, was announced on April 21, 2012. If you sign up for ALPHA after April 20, 2012, this will be your first promo card. Dates on when you should expect the card will be announced as soon as the details are worked out, but for a general timeframe, expect to receive SLIFER about a couple months after SHOCK MASTER goes out. UPDATE: The final date to sign-up for SJ Alpha and receive SLIFER is July 11, 2012.

3. How often are promo cards released?
4 times throughout the year.

4. I'm already an SJ ALPHA member. Will I receive promo cards?
Yes! Make sure your account has your mailing address (find out how to do so HERE). You will get whatever cards are released during the duration of your membership, so if you have a year-long membership, expect to receive at least four cards (some lucky ones might get more!).

5. Will it be delivered to my home?
Yes! Please be sure to input your mailing address in your profile.

6. I transferred over my subscription from print to digital. Will I get cards?
Yes. You will get whatever cards are released during the duration of your transferred membership. HOWEVER, please be sure that your account profile has your latest mailing address.

Hope this answers everyones' questions.

May you guys release Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon Promo Cards again?

Submitted by shentusio on Thu, 07/25/2013 - 00:21

I think it was said in an SJ podcast episode that you could choose to get buttons instead of Yu Gi Oh cards but when I subscribed recently I didn't see that option. I really want a Bleach button and not Yu-Gi-Oh cards so how can I get one???

Since February of 2013 there has only been 2 cards released; Zubaba General which you have already received, and Vulcan the Divine - which has not been mailed out until after your original post.

Your Vulcan the Divine should be arriving soon.

Earlier today I had signed up a friend for an annual subscription to Shonen Jump as a gift, although I didn't realize that the promo code had to be implemented in order for him to recieve the Yu-Gi-Oh! cards that would be shipped out over the course of the year. Is there any possible way for me to amend my purchase so that he is able to receive his cards? We are both living in the US, by the way.
