The Kinokuniya Sale Cheat Sheet [[SALE: 9 – 24 DEC 2010]]

Posted in Kinokuniya, Magazine GWP by Jae on December 9, 2010

Now, as you should know, the Kino sale starts TODAY!

The problem is, with so many magazines coming in at such random times, how would we know when our favourites are coming in? Will it be in time for the sale?

Well, I’ve compiled a little cheat sheet just for you dear, hehe!

Let’s go~!

The following table shows the magazines that came in on 6 December 2010 (Monday) – GO GRAB!

*Cosmode also came in with this batch~

The following table details what will be coming in on 20ย December.

I wonder when Layers will be coming in… Hmm…

Now, do note that:
1) The magazines usually arrive at about 2PM
So if you plan to head down or call to reserve any of the magazines, you’ll have to do so after 2PM.

2) Magazines can only be reserved for 3 days
After that, the magazine gets released!

3) Reservations will only be entertained if you make it after the arrival of the magazine
In other words, if you plan to “pre-reserve”, it’s not going to be possible ^^|||

4) You have to call the Japanese book counter for reservations
Yup, avoid calling the English book counter by accident!

5) There will definitely be a number of people calling at the same time to reserve copies of magazines and books
So call early and if no one answers, try again in a while. The counter can get overwhelmed sometimes, so the staff may sound a little rude, but bear with them because they often are under immense pressure.

6) You may browse the magazines before buying!
If you head down to the main counter with the magazine and request that you be able to browse it, they’ll help you out with it. Does not apply to some magazines (Eg. idol & jrock magazines) comics and some books though!

So there you go, sweethearts! I hope this helps you! ๐Ÿ˜€

-looking at my list- Darn! I should have bought my Popteen later!

    • Jae said, on December 9, 2010 at 1:25 pm

        And ahh, I know what you mean! But I think the giveaways this month aren’t very attractive… You think?

      • Kristy said, on December 15, 2010 at 10:15 am

        It’s okay, you must be busy.
        Ha you sure bought a lot!
        Yeah I think so too, but I don’t usually buy for the giveaways but i follow on the magazines i buy monthly~
        and i don’t really get why there’s always like one copy of egg left only when i go to the shelf ;A;
