    I ordered another Help deluxe edition from Popmarket today. Just $8.79 shipped. The enclosed lobby cards alone are worth that much, so I couldn’t pass it up.

    Well apparently my phone listens and reads everything I say or type because this just turned up in my YouTube feed:

    Looks like Help is sold out?

    Did you try both Popmarket and Deep Discount?

    Mine arrived today, it's a thing of beauty! Mind-boggling deal, really.

    Puzzlingly, my Gruff Rhys LP has shipped after I reordered it following their cancellation. I think they are a bit shonky at keeping track of what's in stock.

    Its the same place. If it shows sold out at one, it might still look like it’s in stock at the other. But they are both drawing from the same inventory so once one site says it’s gone, it’ll be gone from the other too even if it looks like you can still order it.

    They are indeed. But they do also sell out and then find more stock or have something returned from another store... the parent company here is Alliance, the biggest distributor there is. At least some of these Bin titles are things that they got returns on from stores that couldn’t sell them... so they might get like 10 from one store, sell out and then a few days later, get like 7 more from somewhere else.

    That album is really fun. Full price fun, which I paid and should make your grab that much sweeter.

    Definitely weirdness going on in the Bin with pricing right now. CD count is up around 12-13K, but there are tons of things in there that are either marked down only a small percentage or in some cases, not marked down at all. Some vinyl titles are similarly priced all goofy, which has happened before. But I have definitely never seen things in the Bin that aren’t discounted at all.

    I recommend checking one of their other outlets (Pop Market, etc) if you see something in the Bin that you want that doesn’t appear to be clearance priced... at least for now.

    Oh and that HATTER discount code expires today so if you all want to get a discount on, you know what to do!

    And, as I was reminded when I tried to use it to pre-order The Who Sell Out box set, it's valid for in stock items only. I hope that's not the "way of the shark" going forward - I've used their coupons on a lot of pre-sales in the past.

    Well, the bin is back to its boring self. Even the specials that hung on for a few days (Belinda Carlisle, Rosanne Cash) are gone. That was a fun burst of activity though....

    Yeah, same. I actually lucked out because the new Japan Quiet Life Super Deluxe just came out so I was able to use it on that.

    Oh for sure there was some new stuff added to the vinyl bin too (and a TON of CDs too) over the last 24 hours but with the wonky pricing, it’s damn near impossible to figure out what is on clearance for real.

    Best advice: start a Wish List and add anything you are potentially looking at in there. That way you can just hit the one location to see if the pricing has changed or been fixed or what and not have to scroll the whole damn bin again.

    New, not-as-good coupon just kicked off:
    TEAPOT gets you 10% off when you buy 3 or more in-stock items.

    Again with the “in-stock” qualifier. UGH.

    Ahhh man, that would have been a good one! I guess I can do it at 10%. Or, with Gang Of Four, Pylon, John Lennon/POB and The Who boxes all on the horizon, I can just leave well enough alone! :D

    Yeah, even with an extra $2.98 shipping charge it worked out cheaper than Amazon by a few bucks.

    But I definitely see your point about those other boxes. Ugh.

    And my HELP $8.79 order gets cancelled (cancelled at $6 previously)?

    Last year, I received the Bowie 7" picture single Beauty and the Beast, after it was cancelled and refunded. I emailed them and got no response.

    Last year, DD cancelled a Springsteen Dublin LP order, several different times. I mentioned it in an email and they responded that I could buy it at the sale price when becomes available. They honored that email, refunding the difference of about $25 about a month later.

    Yeah they have definitely shipped me something after it was already cancelled and refunded, too. You would think this kind of thing would prompt them to fix their rotten inventory system but oh well....

    So in response to this part of the conversation I have to say one thing... Several months ago, when I first discovered Deep Discount I had pre-ordered three super deluxe boxed sets using a discount code: Prince's "Sign O the Times," Tears For Fears' "The Seeds of Love," and Ultravox's "Vienna." Of those three the only one I actually got was Prince. My order status of other two became "backordered" on the day of release. I sent an angry email asking how they could take my money as a pre-order, but still not have a copy to send me. (Isn't that what pre-ordering is for? To make sure they have enough copies?!) I got a routine response basically saying I could cancel the orders or wait to see if they get them back in stock. I was so furious I almost completely wrote Deep Discount off. (But the lure of the Blowout Bin has made me stay. Especially after I had read comments on here about big dumps of new items.) I ended up canceling both orders and buying them elsewhere at a greater cost. Very frustrating.

    So I guess my question is, has anyone else had a pre-order experience like this? It's made me very hesitant to ever pre-order anything from them again. Especially an item that's super important to me that I'm dying to get my hands on, like those two were.

    [Apologies if I've already talked about this experience on the thread before. It seems the older I get the less I can remember. LOL!]

    Yes, only once. My pre-order of "The Seeds Of Love" met the same fate as yours. I texted my buddy for whom I had ordered a copy as well and let him know that we were out of luck. The box had already become unobtainium and prices were surging. That was until I checked uDiscover on a whim and I was able to score the TFF box, even a tiny bit less than DD. Of course this saw another pressing but I'd have been really bummed if I couldn't get it.

    That said, when the Japan "Quiet Life" box was announced, it was only available out of the UK/Europe (?) and prices were stupid. When it appeared on Amazon, $70 looked like a bargain and I promptly ordered it. Even when it became available later on DD/importCDs/etc., I didn't trust them to fulfill even though I probably could have paid $15-20 less. Looks like some have shipped but this is one that I trusted Amazon more than DD.

    Regardless, I've probably placed over 100 orders with DD over the years and I will continue to do so.
