Due to circumstances beyond my control, I maybe taking a prolonged trip to out of country. Now, this trip is still up in the air and may or may not happen. I talked to my LCS about getting my pulllist sent to my home and getting charged monthly but, he will not do that for me.

Soooo, I would like to see if stores here would be up to the task. My pull list isn't huge its about 75-100 dollars per month. I would ask for a monthly shipment to my house and my wife would take care of it past there.

I wouldn't be asking for this service until I knew for sure if my trip was a go or not, so this is more of a what if.

I'm not sure how payments would be handled, im fine having my cc on file at your store and being billed from that for the monthly total.

My only caveat is my pull list includes 2 1:25 variants that I want on a monthly basis, which I'm willing to pay 10 dollars each for in addition to all the other items

I'll post what my pull list looks like right now to give anyone who is interested an idea of what they would be getting into.

When is this trip. And for how long?

Last I checked, Pat is no longer running subscriptions due to health.

I won't know when I'm leaving till it get closer to leave, if that makes any sense. But it would most likely be fall timeish.

typical deployment is 12-24 months, I don't think they can hold onto me past 24.

I'm guessing he's gotten burnt before. There might be other LCS in the area but, I'm sure they are a longer drive than 30 minutes I do to get to his shop. I thought about just going to an online sub service a few times but, I like to support the little guy whereever and whenever I can.

I think your 1:25 variants are going to be the stickler. I know my shop would be able to pull all these books for you, but they don't order 25 copies of either Green Lantern or Aquaman.

ya I figured they would be the challenge. That's pretty much what's holding me up from westfield and the other online subscription services. You can't sub the incentives

You really are better off just leaving the variants off your list and subscribing with someone here. The discounts will make up for it in the long run. Most LCS's only offer 15-20% off while here you can probably get 35-40% off. Plus those 2 titles dont command huge amounts of money on ebay, right now you can score most of those 1:25 variants for $15 or less. So just get regular issues here and snag those variants off ebay.




Thanks to the following sellers for helping me put together my complete run of Amazing Spider-man #1-700

ComicCastle
TreeHouse
Hall Of Heroes
Thundercron's Longbox
DrumCzar


Now for the sellers helping me finish my TMNT collection:

Hall Of Heroes
Green Bay Comics

That's kind of what I'm trying to avoid, I'm not sure when and how I would get online right now as I'm not sure where I'll be at.

I didn't ask for discounts on my subs, I actually pay full price at my LCS. So I figure if I paid full price, shipping and handling and got the incentives it would be worth the few extra dollars to avoid the hassle of making sure I got my 2 incentives.

Heck even if the subscription store went and bought the incentives off westfield every month they would probably make 4-5 bucks off the incentives plus what they would make off my normal subs.

And figure what I pay in gas now going to my LCS on a weekly basis I would actually save money in theory.

for the current order, DCBS is listing the variants you want at $12 each... $2 more than you're willing to pay, but your entire list is gonna come in at a 35%-%40 discount, which probably makes up for the $4 extra variant cost and maybe your S&H too.

after Pat stopped his long distance sub service, i switched to these guys and after 2 shipments i have no complaints.

Same for me. Had Pat for a while, now have DCBS and no complaints so far. You would have to go online each month and order the books yourself, but at least you would be sure you get what you want.

If you haven't found anything yet I might be able to help you. I don't offer a subscription service but I could add your pull list at my LCS and ship it to you. We could work out the logistics. I'm not sure about the 1:25 covers, I would have to ask. Let me know if I can help.
