Weekly Pull Lists ship every Wednesday, of course, while bi-weekly and monthly Pull Lists ship out every two weeks and every four weeks respectively. Because some months have five Wednesdays in them, the time during the month when a Pull List ships out can change. When your first Pull List shipment is sent out depends on when you start your Pull List, so expect a shipment the first, second, or forth week after starting. Please note that if you start your Pull List after the Saturday deadline, there is a one-week delay in the first Pull List shipment. Also, if you suspend and restart your Pull List this can confuse our system, so if you do this and you’re concerned about when your shipment will arrive, just drop us a line and we’ll be glad to let you know when your shipment will be going out.
- Deadline to make changes: If you want your changes to be effective immediately with this week's releases, submit them before Saturday night at 4PM EST. Otherwise, your changes will take effect with the titles released the following week.
- PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL CHANGES OR ADDITIONS OF TITLES; THEY MUST BE DONE ONLINE ONCE YOU LOGIN.
- E-Mail confirmations: You will receive one only when activating or de-activating your Pull List . To confirm the status of any other changes that you make in your Pull List , refer to your "My Account" page.
Shipping cost is determined by the dollar amount of your order and what method of shipping you choose (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly), just like all orders from www.Phantomzoneonline.com . (Click here to view shipping chart).
Our pull List service offers you some of the best benifits of any Pull List in the country. You simply choose 7 or more monthly titles, and a shipping frequency, and every issue of your titles will be mailed to you. There's no commitment, and you can cancel at any time with only a couple of days' notice. You can add just about anything on our site to be shipped with your Pull List. Qualifying orders get free shipping Previews orders, in contrast, offer much higher discounts, but are locked in two months in advance. Every month you pre-order the items you want at unbeatable prices, and they'll be shipped out to you as they're released.
Well aside from getting the great discounts Previews has to offer, you’ll see your shipping cost upfront - no more wondering how much shipping will cost you when the items are ready to go out. But wait, there's more! If the release date of an item in your order is pushed back, we’ll cover the shipping cost for that individual item. Want more? You got it! You now can pay for your entire Previews order (shipping included) with PayPal or your credit card.
When you place your previews order you will be charged for the amount including shipping charges. Shipping amounts will depend on item release dates and shipping cycle. If you decide to add more items later on, you will only be charged the difference.
There are three different shipping cycles: • Weekly: Every week, all items released during that week will be packed up and a shipping rate calculated based on our shipping rates table. • Bi-Weekly: Orders will be shipped every two weeks. • Monthly: Pre-ordered items will be bundled up and shipped together every four weeks on a revolving cycle. They will not be bundled up for shipment at the end of every month. Please note that our monthly cycle option does not directly correspond with a calendar month, because some months have five Wednesdays. Monthly shipments will nevertheless always ship four weeks apart. If you select monthly shipping, you may have to wait for your shipment, but you'll receive more items in one shipment, saving you money on the shipping cost. If you select weekly, you'll get your orders faster, although you'll usually pay more in shipping. Nevertheless, if you're only ordering one item, you're better off with weekly.
When you submit a Previews order, you are placing an order 2-3 months in advance. The items listed in Previews have not been released yet. After adding items to your cart and checking out, you will have to wait for the item(s) to be released by the publisher or manufacturer. (Release dates are available on each product page, and are subject to change by the publisher or manufacturer). When you place a Previews order we are specifically ordering that item for you meaning even if run out of stock on the site, we still have your copy on reserve. Unfortunately, because Previews items are ordered to match demand, we cannot cancel a Previews order once the Previews ordering window has closed.
