    For those of you that don't know an Enterplay Flash Sale is a sale that contains event merchandise (including those rare event cards) on enterplaystore.com. The sale lasts only as long as they have stock which runs out very quickly.

    Information From a Veteran :p


    Where?
    The Enterplay Store (Here)
    However the flash sale items are not visible on any section of the store that is reachable via the navigation buttons. The idea behind being that you can only reach a hidden page in the store from a link posted on Enterplay's Facebook Page (Here). That said the hidden pages can still be reached by typing in the right words in the search box on the upper left of the site but this method is not guaranteed to show the flash sale.

    Payment Method
    PayPal

    When?
    The time when flash sale will usually occur from 14:00 UK to 03:00 UK the next day.
    Usually they are a minute or two after the hour but they can appear at any time.
    After the sale has been put up on the store, Enterplay's Facebook page will post the link to the sale but this might take them some time to do so which means those using the search box on the store to access the sale may be able to see it first.

    How much can I buy?
    You are allowed only one of an item per sale. If you put more then one of that item in your shopping basket you will not get anything and you will have wasted another's chance at getting something as well.

    Types of Sale
    • [insert name] Card: $4(£2.50 ish): Basically a free card plus $4 for postage (sometimes $6 or free). Usually a hard to obtain promotional card from an event but also sometimes cards that have yet to come on to the market.
    • Pick-A-Card: $4: You are allowed to pick almost any card you want from their stock. To pick what card you want type it on the notes to seller section of the PayPal checkout or send them an email afterwards.
    • Random Signed Card: $4: A random card signed by one of the cast from the show.
    • Newcomers/Newbies Only: A sale just for those that have never bought anything in a flash sale before.
    • International Only: Just for those outside the USA.
    • Australia Only: Guess.
    • [insert name] Playmat: $20 (£12.50 ish) plus $19 (£12 ish) postage: A playmat to be used with CCGs this is often a pre-release i.e, you get the mat before it later arrives in shops.
    • [insert name] Playmat and Card: $20 (£12.50 ish) plus $19 (£12 ish) postage: Same as the above just it comes with a card either from the CCG or TCG.
    • [insert name] Set/Playset of 3: $4: Three of the same card from the CCG.
    How much stock of an item is there?
    Usually 25 to 50 of an item.

    WARNING!
    The item can go out of stock whilst your going through checkout so if you haven't been all the way through and paid then you haven't secured you chance at getting the item yet.

    Tips from a Veteran

    For those of you using Enterplay's Facebook page to access the sale don't rely on Facebook notifications or the news feed as they can be slow to update instead stay on their page and refresh often.

    For those of you using the search box on the Enterplay Store refresh often as well.

    Get an Enterplay Store account and fill out your address.
    Otherwise you will have to fill out your address every time you checkout.

    Have money in your PayPal account beforehand.
    In the past my purchase has been labelled as fraud by their system for not giving them the money strait away resulting in me having to contact them.

    I'm pretty sure they have mislabelled it on their own site.

    they say that its a CCG card, but its not its one of the trading cards.

    I'm not bothered about the trading cards.

    If it was the CCG Derpy Promo that would be a different matter.

    I wasn't sure if it was a CGG card which is why I started the thread here but it isn't a trading card from series 1 or 2 either as far as I'm aware. :S

    Edit: Ah it appears to be the first card from Trading Card Series 3

    Individual cards are $4.00 (£2.38) including shipping.
    Everything else is $19.00 (£11.29) shipping. That Derpy card and mat cost me $39.00 (£23.18) total and I'll probably be charged about £4.50 VAT when it enters the country as well as whatever the delivery company decides to charge me for handling (usually somewhere from £6 - £12).

    Edit: Actually scrap that VAT and handling stuff, the mat and card only cost $20.00 (about £12.00) which is below the VAT charge rate (which is £15/$25.24) so I shouldn't be charged for them.

    Enterplay have said that there will be no more flash sales till tomorrow due to Wifi issues.
