What is a NPN?

NPN stands for no-purchase-necessary. In order to not be considered a lottery, card companies hold NPN offers.

To send in a NPN you will need a 3x5" index or note card, a stamp, and a #10 envelope. #10 envelopes are the standard business size envelopes, and you will see #10 on the package. Put your name and address on the index card and mail it to the address by the cutoff date.

If the posting does not mention a SASE envelope, assume it is not needed. If I know that one requires an SASE envelope, I will make sure to mention it.

Your card will be entered into a drawing which will give you the same odds of receiving an insert as you would have if you purchased a pack.

The information on this site is unofficial. I gather addresses and information from websites and off the back of packs of cards. I do not represent any card companies.

To Answer Your Questions...

Sorry to all of you who don't need to be told this...

I've received over a handful of emails in the previous month from people asking questions about things I have no control over. Three people wrote me saying they sent in a NPN entry for a certain product and never received anything. Another person wrote me complaining that they bought a pack of cards and there were blank cards in it asking me to do something about it. I've had about ten other random, weird questions about cards.

Let me say this again: I AM NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY OF THE CARD MANUFACTURERS!!! Please read the blog and the section titled "What is an NPN?" I simply post NPN addresses that I find. Anything on this blog may or may not be true. While I change any mistakes that I know of, the card companies have total control over NPN offers and contests. I just report things I find and hear.

Sorry if I am sounding rude. I don't want some idiot trying to sue me because s/he didn't receive a card.

That being said, I really enjoy the emails I've received from those of you telling me about your great pulls and NPN cards in the mail. Please don't stop those! I've met quite a few interesting collectors and I enjoy chatting about cards through email. If you want a card posted, send me a scan. As you can see, my page lacks pics and I would love to include more. Good luck friends!
