    This is true. I’ve been through these sales with them in the past.

    Since you asked, I received notice yesterday that my order of 5 copies of guitar duo covers of Focus songs has been shipped FedEx with a delivery date of 9/4/18.

    I made two big orders. I say slow, only because most will process in a day.

    I made an order on another web site. Deal was too good to be true. Took a month to tell me "sorry, it's OOS". Grr.

    Yeah I checked on the site and my order is there, but nothing at all about when it might ship. I made sure to use PayPal so I can get them to get me an easy refund if it takes too long to get my stuff. But I'd rather just have my records.

    They got back to me. While I have no problem with the answer they gave me, I do find the tone odd as well as the part I made bold. It's also odd that they're boasting a "100% fill" of my order. I read here and elsewhere (after I ordered) that they are known to sell things they don't have, but apparently they don't actually have anything?:

    They’re not unique in doing this. Hell, Amazon, Walmart and Target do it too.

    sure but amazon doesn't take an entire week to ship me stuff and then passively try to pretend like it's not their fault. just sayin'

    Actually Amazon kinda does that too if you’re not a prime member. And sometimes they kinda do it even if you are a prime member.

    And there is nothing preventing folks from ordering from Amazon instead of mega-retailer Oldies.com.

    Just sayin’...

    One of my two fat-cat orders got shipped. And it was the latest of the two.
    They're working from the top of the pile....

    Yes, the shipping is way, way suboptimal.

    The dreaded FedEx Smart Post - if I had known that, I would NOT have placed the order.

    Eff oldies.com.

    I ordered some albums last fall and the shipment came fast and quick. Lots of new old stock, still sealed. My friend tried them and had a horrible experience. In the spring I tried again and received half the items I ordered, but to make it up to me they sent duplicates of some of the albums! I contacted them and was basically told to pound sand. All I wanted was to return the duplicates and/or refund for what I ordered and didn’t get. I have not even browsed their website since.

    Fed ex was supposed to arrive today but it's looking grim. It said it went out for delivery at 6:30 this morning and it's 5 PM now ! 90 degrees out all day!!
    The horror!!

    Never again. I apologize for opening this thread.
