    One thing I forgot to mention about my experience with the botched Amazon Deal of the Day sale from August 5, which has a somewhat happy ending...

    Like many of you, I placed several items from the sale (mostly vinyl box sets) in my shopping basket earlier in the day - not necessarily to order them all, but to have a list of interesting items from which I could pick and choose when placing final order(s). While I was able to place a couple of orders for sale items in my cart, others quickly became unavailable to order at the sale price. Rather than delete them, I moved them to 'Save for Later' on the off-chance that more sale items would become available as the day progressed. Unfortunately, even though I had checked repeatedly throughout the day, many of the items maintained their regular (high) prices.

    Late on Monday evening, I received the dreaded cancellation notice for one of my larger orders. Out of frustration, I visited my shopping cart to delete all the items I had saved earlier in the day - a last-ditch "screw you, Amazon!" move. LOL. Although the majority of the items maintained their regular (high) prices, one of the items - Tom Petty's American Treasure 6LP vinyl box set - had somehow reverted to the earlier $20.99 sale price, much to my surprise and delight. I QUICKLY added it to my cart...and somehow managed to place the order! Almost immediately after placing the order, I noticed that the sale price had once again disappeared and the Petty box was back to the regular price.

    Given that my other order had been cancelled, I was fully expecting the same thing would happen to this new order. But somehow, miraculously, the order stayed active and today it finally shipped! So while I ended up losing out on some box set sale items (Springsteen, Buffalo Springfield and Rolling Stones), I did manage to finally end up with one that was on the top of my wishlist (Tom Petty).

    (Amazon Sale) Moral of the story:
    Even though you might have missed out on some items available through a limited-time Amazon sale, be sure to place these items in your shopping cart to save for later because sometimes they become available again.

    Nice! I wanted that Petty too. Have now received everything I ordered except Buffalo Springfield and I received a shipping notice for it last night. It's coming from Indiana. Everything else I ordered came from Michigan.

    All the formats they have listed are over priced IMO. No listing on the cd/br set yet though other than the one posted earlier that disappeared. But judging by the other prices it won't be cheap.

    Nice. The Petty is the one I wanted the most too but missed out. Thankfully amazon never cancelled any of my orders and I got the last of it today. Hope they do another one of those again!

    The Abbey Road deluxe CD/BR is $130 at Musicvaultz, so I'd expect similar pricing at amazon.ca.

    So strange. I got an order in there yesterday at that price, it disappeared, I just checked again and it was back, now it's gone. Keep checking folks, maybe you'll get lucky.

  15. Just received the Buffalo Springfield box (5LP). Have received 5 out of 6 so far. If I get the last one (The Kinks) I'll be batting 1,000!

    Buffalo Springfield just arrived so I am 7 for 7!
     
  19. The last of the 7 Prime Deals I bought last week arrived yesterday. I paid a total of $137.94, instead of the regular price of $590.20. Awesome score!

    It's the CD/BR set that keeps getting listed and delisted.
