And the "Fat Finger" award goes to.......

Hey everyone!  Real quick, I hate to use the newsletter to embarrass myself, but that's exactly what I am going to do!

Earlier today, I sent out an exciting newsletter which features some of the top new items in our store.  However, I made two errors:

1.  The title of the newsletter had a 1st grade grammatical error!  It said "This new magic items are hot."  Obviously, it should have said "THESE new magic items are hot."

I'd like to blame Microsoft and automatic spell correction for that one......but I can't!  I was simply trying to send out the newsletter quickly before the end of the day, and I totally missed that grammatical no-no.  My 8 year old daughter is hanging her head in shame at her father, because even she knows better than to rush an important assignment!

2. I incorrectly stated that the download (A Taste of Chaos) was $30.00, but in reality, it's $35.00.  However, on the plus side, you actually get FOUR Reward Points for purchasing that (instead of the +3 points I originally stated).

So that's it.  Two silly errors which I apologize for.  Hopefully this little addendum clears that up!  You can read the original newsletter online right here in case you missed it:

"These new magic items are hot!"

Happy Thursday, everyone!  A lot has happened here in MJM Magic-land!  We recently completed upgrading our webserver, which means the MJM Magic website is now hosted on a FASTER, more STABLE platform!  I have noticed my product search speed has greatly increased, and more importantly, there has been no more downtime on our server.  Come on over to and test drive it for yourself!

With that in mind, I wanted to share with you some new product updates to help keep you informed about new and exciting items in our store!


Here are couple of new downloads we added over the past few days!

1. A Taste of Chaos - $35.00 (+4 Reward Points)

This is a Torn and Restored Card effect which can be done impromptu, and with no gimmicks!  Two effects are taught on the DVD, and it's been getting a lot of positive reviews in the industry.  Don't be mistaken though.....this effect will take a lot of practice, but if you've been looking for an IMPROMPTU Torn and Restored card effect which requires no pre-preparation and no sticky stuff, then this is for you!

2. Turn-over Pass - $5.95 (+1 Reward Point)

I am excited about this one, and the price is unbelievable!  Being able to execute a pass in card magic is something every magician should have in their arsenal.  This download includes over 20 minutes of instruction, and you also get +1 Loyalty Reward points into your account for purchasing it!


Here are some of the top non-downloads which have been selling in our store this week:

6 BY SIX - DVD - $30.00 (+3 Reward Points)

Included on this dvd are six effects you can do with ANY deck of cards, PLUS two bonus routines and a incredibly simple yet deceptive move to switch a card that has not been released any where, ever!


ELECTIC TOUCH PLUS - $199.95 (+20 Reward Points)

The Electric Touch was always a best selling item in our store, but it has been unavailable for over a year now.  Just when I was getting weary of telling people that it was gone forever, I was ecstatic to see that a newer version was being released!  We're currently taking preorders for it right now, and it's expected to arrive in about two weeks!

Electric Touch Plus gives you the extraordinary ability to deliver an electrostatic shock that will not only surge through your fingertips, but through your entire body as well --- and that's just for starters!


THE GRID - $39.95 (+4 Reward Points)

If you like self working card magic which is easy to reset, then pick up The Grid!  This effect is best performed in a sit-down situation, but it will completely baffle the spectator and leave them speechless!  Check out the link above to see a video performance of this effect!


In case you are looking at these +XXX Reward Points that we keep talking about (and wondering what they are), then don't worry -- we got you covered!  Just click this link to read all about them, and how hundreds of customers have been using their reward points to get free magic on their orders!

If you have any other questions, just let me know!

"Now earn Reward Points, and say GOODBYE to the old Discount Code!"

We have a very exciting new feature on the MJM Magic website!  In fact, it's already been there for almost a week, but I wanted to make sure it was working smoothly before sending out this global announcement!

Introducing the new MJM REWARDS PROGRAM!  Basically, we are giving you money back on just about EVERYTHING IN OUR STORE by issuing you Reward Points.  Each Reward Point is worth $1.00, and you can apply them automatically to your order as you accumulate them.

Why are we doing this?  For a couple of reasons:

First, we are slowly phasing out the Returning Customer Discount coupon.  Now before you freak out, let me explain.  Back when I started MJM Magic in 2004, there was no such thing as Price Protected items.  In other words, everything we sold back then had the freedom to be discounted.  Since we were allowed to discount EVERYTHING in our store, we created this Returning Customer coupon to give you even MORE SAVINGS to purchase those items with us.

Now fast forward to 2013.  It's become an increasing trend in the magic industry for creators to only release their items as long as stores don't discount them.  So if we want to carry these new items, we have to sell them at the same price as everyone else.  NO DISCOUNTS.  This is making our Returning Customer Discount less relevant and not very practical to use.

Also, the returning customer needs to be applied MANUALLY every time you make a purchase.  If you don't remember the code, then it isn't applied to the order.  Booo.  :(

So as a solution to these issues, I have been developing and testing out the new MJM Rewards Program, and I believe it solves both these issues above!

The main thing is that we can now give you MJM REWARD POINTS on just about every item in our store, even those which we can't discount!  Say goodbye to the days of trying to use a coupon code, only to discover that the items you want are price protected and not discountable!  With our new MJM Rewards Program, you will earn points on just about everything we carry, and that means MORE MONEY BACK IN YOUR POCKET!

Using a real world example, a customer (Joe C. from San Juan Capsistrano) just purchased the new Coinvexed 3rd Generation for $120.20.  That item is price protected, so no store can sell it on sale.  Howevever, by purchasing it with us through our website, Joe just earned 12 Reward Points, or $12.00 back into his account.  Now he can place a new order and apply that $12.00 towards his next order total.  What could you do with an extra $12.00?  If you're interenational, that may eliminate or greatly reduce your shipping fees!  Or it could completely purchase a couple new decks of cards, etc.  And that's just ONE ITEM in this example!

You could just as easily PREORDER the new ELECTRIC TOUCH + and earn yourself $20.00 back in Reward Points!  That's $20.00 which you can then use to apply on other items on your next order!
Second of all, you can use these points EASILY without having to remember any complicated codes!  You simply proceed through the checkout process, and there's a nice, easy checkbox to click which will automatically apply any points you have towards your new order!  It's so easy, you will be itching to make your next purchase just so you can get some more points!

Now, I am not going to discontinue the Returning Customer Discount right away.  In fact, through this weekend only, you can still use both the discount AND earn points on any discountable item in our store.  After this weekend, the code will be disabled and we will stick to a strictly Reward Point system to give you back the savings.

So if you take anything away from this newsletter, it's this:

1. The new MJM Rewards Points will now earn you points on almost everything we carry!  Anything item less than $10.00 won't earn any points, but anything more than that will.

2. The old Returning Customer discount is being discontinued after this weekend.....but you will still get the same savings given back to you automatically in Reward Points once it's gone, so you are still going to get the same amount back to you.  So don't think that you are losing a discount.  Think of it as GAINING even more savings with a more intuitive, hands-off system which does all the work for you!

3. This new MJM Rewards System is EASIER than ever to use.  No codes to remember, no more forgetting discount codes!  Any points you earn will be automatically tallied and distributed to your account!

MJM Reward Points - How Does It Work?

This is something that I have been working on at MJM Magic for quite some time, and I'm excited to finally roll it out for you!

With the magic industry moving further away from discounting products, I wanted a way to still reward our customers for purchasing items at MJM Magic.  This led me to roll-out our new MJM Rewards program!


What are MJM Magic Rewards Points?


Quite simply, they are MONEY!


How do they work?


Certain items in our store earn you Rewards Points.  You can redeem these points as REAL MONEY on future orders.

How much are they worth?


The values vary, but as a general rule, 1 point = $1.00!   So if you purchase an item that has 3 Reward Points, you just earned yourself $3.00 to use on your next order!

How can I see how many reward points I have earned?


Simply log into your MJM Magic account and you will see your points on the left side of the page like this:


How Do I Redeem Reward Points?


If you have Earned Points which you would like to use, you simply apply those points during our Checkout Process.  Here is a screenshot of what it would look like:

That will automatically apply the value towards your order!

Let me get this straight.....I earn money for spending money?


ABSOLUTELY!  If an item you're purchasing has Reward Points attached to it, then you will automatically earn those points when you purchase it with us!

Reward Points = Money in your pocket! 

How can I tell if an item has any rewards points?


It's easy.  If you go to the product's description page, we will display the number of Reward Points underneath the price.  Also, when you add items into your shopping cart, we will let you know how many points that shopping cart is going to earn you.

Is there a minimum amount of points I have to earn before I can spend any?


No!  Unlike other stores, we don't require you to accumulate any minimums before spending your points!  Heck, you earned them, you should spend them when you want!  So whether you only have one point, or if you have a thousand points, you choose when you want to use them!

Now that MJM Magic is offering reward points, are you still going to offer any other promotions?


Of course we are!  The beauty about this new system is that we can configure it to offer DOUBLE or TRIPLE reward points during certain promotions!  So on certain days, we may say, "Double reward points earned between now and tomorrow", etc.  To make sure you stay on top of when we have these special promotions, be sure to follow our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter) and subscribe to our newsletter!

If you have any other questions, just CONTACT US and let us know!
