How do I get bonus bucks during a promotion?
During promotional periods, you can earn bonus bucks by making a qualifying purchase. The terms of the promotion will tell you what purchases qualify.
Q: What are bonus bucks?
A: Bonus bucks are TCGplayer store credit that we add to your account when you make a qualifying purchase during one of our promotional periods. They're our way of saying thank you for shopping on TCGplayer.com.
Q: What happens if I place my order just before the promotion begins?
A: We don't usually offer retroactive credit, as our sales are uniquely timed. In addition, our bonus bucks terms exclude prior purchases.
Q: When do I get my bonus bucks?
A: If you earn bonus bucks during a timed promotion, we will apply the credit to your account two to three business days after the end of the promotion.
Q: Is there a limit to how many bonus bucks I can earn at once?
A: When your purchase qualifies for bonus bucks, you can earn up to $50.00 store credit per item. During a 5% bonus bucks promotion, for example, this limit only affects items over $1000 in value.
Q: Do I get bonus bucks if I used store credit to complete my purchase?
Q: Is tax included when calculating bonus bucks?
A: We calculate bonus bucks as a percentage of each qualifying item’s price, which does not include shipping or taxes.
Q: Where is my promo code?
A: During promotional periods, you earn automatically bonus bucks whenever you make a qualifying purchase. The credit will appear in your TCGplayer account two to three business days after the promotion ends. No code required!
Q: When are you doing the next promotion?
A: In the past we have run promotions during Black Friday, Cyber Monday, the holiday season, New Year’s, April Fools, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, around new set releases and on a whim! To be notified when our next promotion starts, subscribe to one of our newsletters.
