    almost any time I click on something I want it says does not ship to my selected location. I suppose this means to anywhere in the USA right?

    Correct from what I can tell. I got lucky in that my #1 item on the list was the Bowie vinyl box and that was good for the USA. Several other titles were intriguing but those were not available. Probably just as well.

    The Bowie would have been great and naturally worth signing up for Canadian Prime for. The ones I have found that do ship to my location are ok deals but if I add a Prime membership (even for just a month) and probably still some shipping since I doubt Canadian Prime gets you free shipping to the US then the deal is not so good unless I find a bunch more or one of the ones listed earlier.

    Prime is supposedly free for 30 days. Shipping was pricey but don’t forget the favorable exchange rate. Bowie was about $52 out the door.

    So non-Canadians can sign up for Prime?

    It’s been an expensive August. Combine this with the Yep Roc sale...big:cheers:

    I guess so but I am not really sure what it brings you except for being able to have deals like above (which would have been worth it alone) but having Canadian Prime does not give you free shipping to the US as far as I know. Also, so many items are not available for shipping to the US anyway one would have to calculate if it is worth it. If you got the Bowie deal stated above it certainly was.

    Free for the first 30 days, worth it in my book!

    I've gotten shipping notices for several orders in this deal already.

    Apparently, the Tragically Hip LP collection was going for $30 as part of this. Would have been a sweet deal.

    I’d need to see that deal to believe it. I know there were some crazy deals today but A $500-$600 dollar set going for $30 doesn’t seem very probable...

    I'm not the OP but I saw Fully Completely on vinyl for about $30 CAD on the Prime Deal list so that MIGHT be what they meant. I'm with you- a $600 CAD box like that would be insane and would surely get cancelled. The shipping would cost more lol

    I got it at their last box set blowout a year or so ago for $250...I’ve never seen it cheaper before or since.

    I'm going by the Reddit vinyl deals thing. That's why I said "apparently".

    Onrd I am not a number

    I can confirm that the Tragically Hip box was definitely at a great price. I bought mine at 6 am today. The total cost with tax came to $24.85. My box will be delivered on Wednesday - 13 albums worth.

    Well that def wins. I'll comfort myself thinking no way that one shipped to USA like many of the other box sets

    Now the cancel order messages are coming from Amazon.ca with pricing errors.

    I wondered if that would happen on some of the more extreme deals. Which did they cancel on you?

    This is absolutely BS from Amazon. Learn how to do business. They have millions invested in their tech. Price errors? Too bad. Honor those prices. Don't cancel customer orders!! Absolutely ridiculous
