    They've offered me nothing but to return them , i posted on twitter again , another complaint being forwarded about packaging & i sent an email to Jeff & i'll deal with customer service again tomorrow to see what we do about this one .

    I hope this doesn't last long , pretty soon i'll be done buying from them , it's just not worth it .... It's all them , they are packing them & all have been delivered by their vans , can't blame ups or USPS .

    I guess I have been lucky, I have ordered probably 20 lps over last couple years and none of them have been damaged. Either came in record cardboard package or in box with other items with tons of foam. I also live close to several Amazon warehouses though, which have short commute to my house.

    I just mean whatever the Amazon price was, below MSRP. If it was just a few bucks then I would agree that it’s not worth all the trouble.

    I still make the very occasional Amazon record purchase (they can lure me in once or twice a year), but the discount has to be so unbelievably great that the risk of having to play this multiple-returns game won’t make me feel like I actually lost out in the long run.

    Hopefully that doesn't change , up until this week i never had problems like this , always shipped in lp mailers a lot of times also in an Extra box , we recently got a warehouse about 10 minutes away out in back of my neighborhood , i have to wonder if that's what changed it , they figure local delivery & their drivers won't Destroy lps in short trips ?

    Could be but it should still be packaged better than being in plastic that offers no protection

    I stopped at two and requested a refund. Took over a month for the refund after Amazon received the return.

    Hey guys.. I ordered 3 import LPs on Amazon through rarewaves in one order. Delivery estimate is the 6th-12th. Package came yesterday but only 1 LP (only 1 listed on the enclosed invoice). Do they usually send items separately or should I be concerned?

    Separately, in my experience.

    Way overpriced for this, the box is nothing special to justify its asking price. If it got to $45 I’d buy it

    nah, join the rest of us and wait for <$40 ;)

    i'm imagining amazon is probably sitting on a ton of these. i have a good feeling we'll see this continue to drop.

    Disliked your post.

    I'd keep ordering and returning until they figured out how to get it right. I cannot fathom in what Amazon manual this is even remotely acceptable.

    I ordered mine along with some other junk that all shipped today so I am VERY much hoping it comes in one large box. Fingers crossed.

    I’ve seen conflicting reports on whether this is really mono. I no longer own a stereo version on vinyl, so I’m not canceling my order. If it’s stereo, fine; if it’s mono, it’ll be a nice backup for the superb mono box version.

    You’d be hurting yourself far more than you’d be hurting Amazon. You’d really get a sense of satisfaction repackaging and reshipping things back to them constantly? I get pissed off at the inconvenience of doing it once.
     
  23. You then run the risk of Amazon refusing to sell you physical product.
