6 packs is the fewest you can buy to still get First Class cheap shipping.

I told myself I wouldn't be ordering from Mayday again, but I already have half the packs I need to sleeve Sentinels of the Multiverse and 5 packs still fits into their cheap shipping threshold. Looks like they got me again. zombie

Don't you all need 9200 Premium Euro Sleeves? laugh


This gets my nomination for most ridiculous BF "Deal" of the year.

There are no great deals from Mayday unless you like cheap(quality) sleeves and poor customer service.

I think their sleeves are fine (for what you are paying for) BUT as a company well....yikes. If you do a search on here for past mayday discussions you'll see what I mean. I bought a ton of their green sleeves during a zanga deal. It looked like a dog had chewed threw the package and oddly enough that seemed to be the experience for most people?!? The sleeves were fine though.

That being said, I did order some. Just be aware it could be a wild ride lol.

I bought a bunch of sleeves around this time last year and they sent the wrong things. After that I couldn't get any answers on email or phone for like a week and then I finally did get them and, of course, they were JUST packing up my replacement when I called. Then I finally got it and it was the wrong thing again. Rinse, repeat and finally I got what I had paid for a month and several calls/emails later. Not worth saving a few bucks.

Bought thousands of sleeves from Mayday over the years. Never had a problem save for an occasional bad sleeve, which is rare. People complain about variations in sleeves, but heck, I just shelled out $11 for a single pack of Dragon Shields and there was as much variation in them as in any Mayday sleeves I've bought.

Fact is, the only utterly consistent sleeves are the KMC Perfect Size, which live up to their name. Everything else—Dragon Shields, FFG, Ultra Pro, Mayday, whatever—is about the same as far as individual sleeve variances go.

I've also never had any problems with Mayday service, save for one time when I ordered right before a con and no one was around the office for about a week. I guess any small company would have that problem, though.

I think the Kickstarter for Mayday to start importing Swan sleeves failed, but I hope Mayday finds a way to get those sleeves anyway. Swan seems to cover everything, even the weird sizes.

Just thought I might add that I have purchased somewhere in the neighborhood of 7,500 sleeves (that is a guesstimate on my part) of various sizes from mayday, both from them directly and through other online retailers. I have never, ever, had any significant problem with them . They always arrive, fit perfectly, and everything is A-OK.

I had two of them stuck together in a package onetime, but I just pulled them a part and they were fine. I also had a pack that had only 99 sleeves instead of 100 in it, but the next one I opened had 101 instead of 100 . Sad to hear other people's experiences aren't always as good .

Here is one of the threads regarding what happened last year. It appeared to me that they used a shipping method for everyone that go ripped open. Very strange. It must have been a nightmare for them!

Mine arrived fine, but with a plastic bag around the mutilated envelope. Hopefully it was the fault of the people packing that day.

Sorry. I was wrong about the Swan/Mayday Kickstarter failing. Evidently it was over goal by about 50%. I guess I should check in more often.

Not purchased anything like that number of sleeves, but have had a slight over count in the 100 dirt cheap ones and 1-3 being undersized slightly, struck together, you just pull apart. Given how cheap they are, the thin material, some Chinese machine is most likely making something like 1,000 of them per second from a roll of plastic, I am OK with some fall outs. Not sure how anyone could stay on top of 100% correct at these prices, speed, thin plastic? Can see at the speed these things most likely are made you could have bad packs get thru even if you caught the line problem. Getting the wrong order is something else.

I would likely buy more into this...but they're missing the STD Euro which I need more of(It's on pre-order atm). I mainly also just need chimera and green, but yeah missing some is kind of disappointing. Decent prices but i'll likely just reach free shipping at the swan sleeves site.

Is the deal still on? The web still shows the discounted price but when I added to the cart, the price displays as the regular price.

Beverly,

Yes we had some issues with the sale for a while and have decided to extend it to allow everyone who wanted to get in on it the opportunity. Sorry about that. It will be available for a couple of more days.

Anyone with any problems at all please email Sarah at maydaygames@gmail.com and she will be happy to send you out some replacements ASAP. We have upgraded our production line so all of them should be the same from now on!
