Hehe.UltimateE said:As for rules - it depends on the shop. Most shops sell memberships which give you a certain percentage off items in exchange for a yearly fee. At my local shop it's $5/year and that gets me 10% off new books (I think). But I'm sure if you just wanted to reserve certain books that a shop would do that for you.
Victor Von Doom said:Yeah the whole paying for a pull list sounds kinda weird to me. I mean I have a pretty decent pull list and it costs me nothing....plus it takes 10% off the books I buy from them......on top of the 15% military discount the shop does.
Hmmmmmm....weird. Even still, if I had to pay for one I'd still do it just to make sure I got what I wanted.
When cases like that, my comic shop guy just sells it to someone else.UltimateE said:I'd imagine the shops that charge for memberships do so to make sure they are getting people who are committed to buying what they order. I personally wouldn't do it for free if I ran a shop - anyone can come in and order tons of comics and never show up to buy them, and with no returns the shop owner is screwed.
