    I have it preordered on Amazon & on PopMarket; who had it for $86 for one day; free shipping. I’d be surprised if Amazon beats that.

    Same. After the third time they refunded. I asked : WTH? They said: Buy it again, we'll do one day shipping, and the cycle repeated.

    I ordered the white album from them and it arrived on release day as expected and promised. Have just ordered the super deluxe and the 3xLP vinyl set from them for a total of £132.98 including £8 postage/delivery.

    I understand the reason to use other retailers pricing to try and get Amazon to price match, but in time, other retailers may cease to exist on that basis, and I’m happy to support smaller dealers who consistently offer excellent pricing and services, (not bashing Amazon, I’m a long-standing customer of theirs too).

    I have used What Records from over here in Australia and have never ever had a problem with them - not only do they have great service but they ship overseas!!

    Amazon has it now for $76.54 free shipping. Will it go down any further?

    Yeah. I am not sure what the theory is behind their pricing strategy. I mean, if they plan to drop the price eventually, why wait? Or why not drop the price right now and then raise it a few days later to reward the early purchasers via preorders?

    Is there some business sense in holding the cost at the list price while numerous other retail sites online are much lower in price?

    I think we all need to specify what version we are buying when discussing prices.

    That bodes well for an eventual price drop for the big deluxe set. That is about a 20% decrease in price. So it will be interesting to see if the $109 list price would also drop by 20% too---which would bring the cost more in line with the other retailers.

    You're right. That was Amz.FR's strategy and they got my purchase. I paid the equivalent of $71.84 including tax (so no custom fee) and shipping for the 3-LP version. Their price raised since.

    I’ve ordered quite a bit from What Records lately. In fact just unpacked a delivery this afternoon. Great prices and well packed deliveries. Their £8 capped shipping is ideal for larger orders.

    My only minor niggle is some items can be out if stock after you’ve ordered and paid. And they don’t seem to automatically refund. I’ve had to email them on both occasions asking for a refund (which they did).

    Dr. Pepper What, me worry?

    I'm not complaining here, just amused. The Beatles got our money in 2009 with the remasters, and now a decade later they have found a way to get our money yet again with the remixes and more outtakes. Amazing.

    Yes. And here we are on an internet forum, named for a reissue mastering engineer. Amazing ! :laugh:
