Amazon packaging.

  1. I'll say this for ImportCDs and Deepdiscount in recent years. If you order several CDs at once, they package them in a snug box almost perfectly sized to hold CDs and will usually arrive in mint condition. Their packaging for LPs and large box sets are more suspect.

    Pressed corrugated with adhesive sides. What do people that need to return an item do ? They must come up with their own packaging, because you have to destroy the pressed wings, in order to get to your purchase.

    Sometimes Amazon sending the wrong item works out quite nicely.
    I ordered "29" by Ryan Adams on vinyl and got "Abbey Road" instead. I didn't have Abbey Road on vinyl until now and I paid half the price that it is currently going for on Luckily the Ryan Adams LP is still in stock for the same price so I placed another order, let's see what I get this time. :p

    By the way, the last two shipments I've received from Amazon have been in a different (and more appropriate) type of mailer. They must have gotten tired of me sending back items that were damaged due to their poor packaging. These are a bit different than the "frustration free packaging" ones but they seem to work quite nicely, the records arrived in perfect condition.

    I wonder why they don’t use the white plastic recyclable bubble mailers for everything? If you cut around the shipping label, it can be recycled with grocery bags.

    One thing I've learned about Amazon.... don't order more than 3 LP's in the same order. Two of them will be packaged properly, the third will be thrown on top with no protection and end up looking like this:

    Complaining right now to Amazon... 3 out of 5 CD's I just ordered had broken/mauled jewel cases. I don't mind replacing them with my own cases but they really need to send in better packaging...
