Saw this awesome offer on Marvel.com today! Tomorrow, January 7, if you buy a digital comic from the Marvel Comics app, you’ll get a $5 coupon which can be used at any comic shop to buy Marvel comics. They also did this years ago and it was posted on couponscollector.com which many fans were happy about. Go to your favorite local comic store and receive the promo code by simply buying a digital comic from the app.
Kick off the New Year by discovering the world of the Marvel Comics app and receiving a $5.00 coupon for your local comic store! That’s right, if you purchase a comic on the Marvel Comics app on January 7, between 12:01 AM EST and 11:59 PM EST, you will be e-mailed a coupon (on January 8) valued at five dollars to be used for any Marvel comics purchase at your local comic store. Please note that only one coupon is available per user during this limited-time offer and may only be redeemed at select comic shops..
“We’re big believers that everything we do with the Marvel Comics app brings new fans to our great medium and we want to make sure those same fans discover the great comic book stores out there,” said David Gabriel, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment. “For our fans, this is a great chance to digitally try out a new series you’ve heard about—and get a great coupon to use on the Marvel comics you buy at your local shop each Wednesday!”
In 2011, Marvel Comics continued its innovation in the world of digital comics, offering free digital copies with the purchase of select print comics at no extra cost; offering unparalleled retailer incentives related to digital comics redemptions; and announcing plans to include codes for free digital copies with the Marvel: Season One graphic novels and all Ultimate Comics series in 2012.
“As we continue to grow the digital comics world, we want to make sure it’s always to the benefit of the medium and our comic shop retail partners,” said Peter Phillips, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Marvel Digital Media Group. “This coupon is a great way for us to let more of our fans know about their local comic store and incentivize them to make the trip there. At the end of the day, our goals in the print and digital mediums are the same—bring more fans to comics.”
This weekend, there’s only one place to be for the can’t-miss Marvel deal of year—purchase a comic on the Marvel Comics app and get your $5.00 coupon for use at your local comic store!
Honestly, I sort of think this is backwards as I think digital comics need more of a boost, but anything to help bring attention to comics is a good thing! Definitely makes me want to pick up something Marvel tomorrow!
