    Always amazed no one ever seems to bother with IMHO is the best priced shop on the net (for almost anything) - "Import CD's" (located in America).
    Abbey Road Deluxe Box Set: $77.42 US
    Abbey Road 2 CD: $18.04 US
    Abbey Road 1 CD: $13.36 US
    Abbey Road 3 LP: $81.01 US
    Abbey Road 1 LP: $20.53 US
    Abbey Road Pic Disc: $31.19 US

    They have always been brilliant for me, very fast with very decent postage rates too.

    In this instance, it's cheaper to get it from Bullmoose. They have no tax and their free shipping still gets you release day delivery. Importcds you have to pay for at least expedited shipping at around $8 and Amazon makes you be a prime member for free release date delivery.

    I bought the two McCartney Archive boxes from them last year. Good prices but they took a little while to get to me.

    If anyone cares, I preordered the 3CD+Blu-ray set from Bullmoose for $83 (no tax, free shipping) and the single LP from Amazon for $23 (+ tax, free Prime shipping). Bullmoose for the box set because I have an established account with them, they are reliable, ship quickly and were significantly cheaper. I went with Amazon for the vinyl because they have the quickest shipping, the best return/exchange policies (should there be any damage or quality issues with the more fragile product) and the price difference was relatively negligible.

    Amazon US is the only Amazon site where the deluxe isn't on sale.

    I’ve noticed. I have it preordered there & bought one from PopMarket. I doubt Amazon will go as low as PopMarket.

    Any UK options other than Amazon that anyone has found? The Amazon UK price is ok ish. It really needs to be £20 cheaper given that all three CDs look as though they come in around the 40 minute mark. But you have to allow for Beatle tax.
  11. Yes. They have always been a bit slow but have become more impersonal since their latest takeover by Direct To You. In the early days, they were a part of Sony and served as a clearing house for overstock. At that time they actually had an inventory. I believe that ownership changed and when they got into newer and current releases, they would sell before they actually got in in stock, and then do all the shipping themselves. That took extra time. Then, they started having the one-stop they used in Shepherdsville, KY to direct ship. This one-stop also ships for Amazon, if it comes from KY. They use media mail, so it often takes a little longer, but lately, with a pre-release purchase, I often receive it within a couple of days after the release. With Amazon Prime, I receive it the day of release.

    Remember when amazon would cut the price on everyone and everything that was issued? now that a lot of the competition is eliminated they figure they don't have to compete as much. :shake:

    Amazon will also kick your butt out if you return a certain percentage of your purchases.
    Amazon's shipping of vinyl is a roll of the dice, as their packing of vinyl is never consistent, whereas Bull Moose always uses proper album mailers, and as I've already posted, I've never, in 11 years, received a damaged item from Bull Moose.

    I know we all have our favorite retailers, for our own reasons, but for shipping vinyl, you've bypassed a sure thing, for as I say, a roll of the dice.
    Best of luck.

    I posted this in the other Abbey Road thread, but it should belong here:

    When the White Album Deluxe box was first listed, it stayed at list price on Amazon for about 2 weeks. Then, it dropped about $50 bucks to around $120 or so.

    Does anyone remember this happening? Or am I confusing it with some other album?

    I've returned 'The Wall" vinyl whooping 6th time to Amazon. Now waiting for the next one. Every time a corner damage. But to be fair it looks like they're getting them pre-packaged. All Pink Floyd comes in one type, and for example Tone poet in other (much better ) package.

    Does Bull Moose charge your card right away on pre orders?

    That's interesting. Usually on the second, and always by the third time, Amazon just gives me a refund and asks me to buy from fresh. Are you actually able to return an item 6 times in a row?

    Thanks. It is good to get verification that someone else recalls this. It will be interesting to see if this is how Amazon will handle the price again.

    Have any of the digital only releases so far included hi res 2.0 and hi res 5.1 ? Lately I've been moving away from physical media when possible.
