    Such sad faces on this forum.

    Order number 2 came here in full without a hitch. Number 1 is still moving. They did good.

    The Stones Satanic box is such a hefty thing, I've got the urge to hold off opening it until I'm seriously bored.

    Edit: They forgot the Norah Jones lp. Was billed but not shipped? Will investigate.

    Okay, so some of you might have skipped items. Some items (like Doors, Mono SD) went oos and they only charge for what shipped.

    It's 2w and if orders can't be refilled for missing stock, they close out the order. You don't get charged for the unshipped stuff.

    This was the kind of thing you order, hope you get most of it, whatever comes through is grace.

    So you don't find out what they shipped you until you actually get the box and open it up?

    How hard is it to just tell you what's in the box when they ship the order? Geeeeeeez.

    Yeah they don't.

    At least for me, what got shipped meant something than "just another bargain".
    I have no problem with that, since the prices WERE insane. Whatever sticks to the wall.
    It was a mad sale, is all.

    Check the receipt. Look for the 0's and what they charged you, etc.

    Ordered 26Aug. Shipment arrived yesterday, 5Sep. Even with Labor Day, this was a shipment from PA to North Carolina. Bad show.

    My order - 3 CDs and 2 LPs (one of which was a double LP) - arrived in a standard LP box (generic, not ULine, etc.). **NO** bubblewrap, nothing inside except the merch, an invoice and a catalog.

    Bumped corners (one on each of the LPs). Dinged edge on the vinyl of one disc of the double LP.

    Two of the CDs (both on the Collectable label) are CD-Rs. If I had bought them on eBay, I would've believed that I was sold counterfeit.

    The double LP was advertised as being 45 rpm. Nope, sounded like a chipmunk at 45 rpm. Played fine at 33 1/3. Emailed the company this morning. Got a quick reply, which said to call an 800 number.

    On my phone call, I was told that a shipping label would be mailed to me for return of the incorrectly advertised title. No apology, either.

    While I was on the call, I mentioned the CD-Rs. Yeah, that's what oldies.com does these days. No shame evidenced by the employee I was talking to.

    Glad I did a PayPal transaction. I'm certainly starting to wonder if I will need PayPal's help before this bad, bad experience is resolved.

    ouch. does anyone here have continued experience with oldies outside of this flash sale? i know they've been around for a long time... surely there must be regular shoppers, right?

    My last order was the first time they sent me CDRs (Collectables label only); they were unapologetic about it, too. They refunded me, but it wasn’t instant. I wouldn’t buy Collectables items from them again...in fact, I probably wouldn’t buy from them at all. I wonder if penny-pinching by using CDRs ultimately loses them money by pissing off regular customers.

    This is my first order with them. I decided to roll the dice based on the awesome prices but I was definitely warned about them.

    Small labels are making and sending CDRs. Not the first time I've heard Collectibles doing that.

    Both items not shipped are back in stock, but no notice if they'll ship 'em.
    Weird experience, but this was cheap as hell.

    Got all my records with no damage shipped in a box and they were triple bubble wrapped so not the best shipping but everything was safe n sound

    Wish they wouldn’t put a handful, of junk mail in there like they all do now

    So my order arrived but one LP was missing. The shipping slip said I have a credit towards my next order instead of a refund!
    I sent them an email. Ugh!

    Mercy, maybe you got some of the bubblewrap that was missing from my shipment. (Yeah, I got the "junk mail" too.)

    I received my first order complete. Unfortunately I’m missing the AP Sonnyboy Williamson from my 2nd order.
    I got a credit slip.

    I called and they said they would issue PayPal credit in due time. Not sure how long that is.

    My box came today without two records. Says I have a "credit" with them now for the amount those two cost. Packing slip says I have to wait 10-14 days and whatever hasn't shipped by then I will be issued a refund for.

    I guess that's okay. At least I'll get my money back I suppose. Weird.

    Yes, two weeks and they either send 'em or refund.

    I have no problem with this - They continue to have more stuff for cheap, and I've ordered a 3rd package. I've had worse experiences with eBay at normal expectations for it.

    A couple of minor dinged corners on my order. Too bad because the box they shipped in was pretty robust AND had bubble wrap. I got a great deal on the recent AF pressing of Esquivel and a KILLER deal on the deluxe pressing of Gord Downie's last solo project. I'd probably give em' a go again at these prices.
