    I see it as more of a monopoly attempt than capitalism. (Yes Amazon, Walmart & Movie Mars do still exist).

    Their customer service can be a hassle but they always did right by me in the end. Their prices are hard to beat usually, especially on some imported items.

    Well, they shipped all of it except for the two that were out of stock. They refunded me for one of those already so I requested that they cancel the other. Guess this is going to get done the hard way.

    That’s about the only good thing so far! I did get them to cancel the other record that didn’t ship and the refund is processing so that’s 2 down I guess. We shall see how easy the return process turns out to be.

    I had a similar experience as you with the cart thing btw, having things added that I was not expecting to be in there. I think that what happened to me - which might have happened to you - is that one night I added a bunch of things to the cart. I did not check out yet though for whatever reason. A couple days later I went back and the cart showed as empty. So I added them again, along with other stuff. Then I went to check out and apparently I was not logged in, so I logged in as prompted. That took me to the final order screen to enter shipping address/payment info and the finalization part of the order. Only then did I notice that there was a lot more in my order than what I just put in the cart that night. It had remembered what I ordered b4 and added all that in despite showing nothing in the cart b4. I think the cart actually stays associated with your account somehow, what happens depends on what you put in the cart b4/if you were logged in b4, if you are logged in now while shopping again etc....probably not explaining that right (I'm zzzleepy after some multiple 12 hour shifts)....

    Yes, on many sites the cart is associated with your log in. On some, it's just cookies.

    I try and check my cart carefully after similar experiences on many sites. The biggest mistake I've made is ordering several items of something I only wanted one of. Because of this I try to be more vigilant.

    This is exactly what happened. Only in my case the cart was from several weeks ago. But same thing basically.

    Oh there is absolutely a massive amount of worthless junk in there. But if you have the patience...

    Not in a place now to browze but the hunt can be fun. Got lots of junk to sift through but the gems can shine. Not up to it now though. The hunt seems daunting. :)

    i'm astonished by all of the soundtracks pressed to vinyl for shows no one's ever watched. no wonder some absolute classic albums have yet to be reissued.

    There’s also a disproportionate amount of foreign language LPs.

    Yea interesting point on the sountracks. I thought they must have a niche. I don't know many of em. Some of catch my eye. I got Blue Velvet it's great.

    Not doing vinyl anymore; I've got 4 cd's in my cart from last month (3 of which I actually want) & can't find the $2 to get free ship.

    Yes. It seems as though Deep Discount vastly overestimated the demand in the US for Music On Vinyl's catalog of Dutch artists. I'm sure there's some great music among them, but it would take me far more time than it's worth to discover any of it.

    If anyone is looking for an entry point into the amazing work of Willy Deville, the Collected 2LP is chock full of outstanding music. A steal at the Blowout Bin price.
