    I received my first 7 LPS today. Some of the corners are pretty dented, anyone else experiencing that? I guess it's to be expected these days.

    Satanic Majesties is the black vinyl by the way. That one picked up the worst damage probably because it's a thick gatefold.

    Unfortunately they are not known for robust packaging.

    omg I saw a great deal on ebay, green vinyl Peanuts Christmas so for $8 I bit....the album, sold as new, arrives with no shrink wrap, no box, no bag, no nothing but postage taped to the cover, and the cover has the opening edge taped shut...with packing tape. all 4 corners smashed to bits and filthy like it was dragged on the ground. vinyl wasn't broken surprisingly but has bad noise 1st track side 2. I'm not going through the hassle of returning it, even though I should.
    I did take the time to write the seller and tell him to find a box, don't do this to others. just couldn't believe it....

    Put in an order for Satanic Majesties, the (second) self titled STP, and the 13th Floor Elevators tribute, which just got me to the free shipping threshold. Shame I already have the Mastodon one on sale or I'd have grabbed that as well. Thanks for the heads up.

    Deep Discount's Blowout Sale is offered through eBay as well? If so, why did you purchase via eBay and not directly from Deep Discount?? Was the price even lower?

    What does that have to do with DeepDiscount which is the actual topic of this thread?

    There's an eBay thread where this should be posted along with the seller's info so others can avoid buying from him.

    it had just happened while I was viewing this thread so it really should have gone in some other thread, sorry.

    this was a best price I could find through ebay, it was a private seller selling a 'new' lp. no official dealer has ever done something so stupid as to send a completely unprotected album. but you can get to deep discount through ebay

    No big deal. Thought maybe I was missing something that made posting it in this thread relevant so figured I'd ask.

    lol I was reading and responding in this thread when that arrived in the mail, I was just so dumbfounded I had to type about it...
    literally over 20 years on ebay but nobody ever just sent me a raw lp like that...

    First two orders showed up. The copy I received of Johnny Marr's "Playland" album looks odd. It's not factory sealed and was received in an aftermarket plastic sleeve. It doesn't exactly look new. I'll see how it plays.

    Bummer. I expect that some of us will occasionally get an oddity like that -- something from the back of the shelves, a prior return that was put back into inventory, an overrun directly from the manufacturer, etc. I hope the quality of the record works out for you in this case!

    (As you know, factory- sealed shrinkwrap is no guarantee either. This past weekend, I took the plastic off a brand-new LP of a recent Randy Newman LP ... and the damn thing had a loud pop all the way through the first song. :hurlleft: )

    Wow. I placed my order on Saturday and the box is already here. That’s pretty damn fast for free shipping!

    I should add—mine was VERY well packed with a Whiplash-style box form-fitted inside a larger box with no wiggle room and some padding/paper behind the vinyl too. No dinged corners or anything like that.

    well this makes me feel bad, I wish I could say the same thing but they really weren't packaged well. Just 7 LPS shoved in a kind of flimsy cardboard mailer.

    I placed two orders, each containing two LPs. The first one arrived yesterday, and the two LPs were packaged in a cardboard mailer like the ones Amazon typically uses. Corners were very slightly dinged.

    Yeah, mine was only 7 LPs and one 10” so I’m not sure why I got the royal treatment and you didn’t. Sucks that they can’t just keep it consistently good like mine was....

    Could be dependent on who does the packing job there I guess.

    Probably right. Are you returning anything?

    No I don't think it's worth going through the trouble
