    No mate, not just you.

    No sign of stuff ordered before 'crisis' even.

    Most all of the jewel cases I have received from them are cracked, especially when multiple
    Discs are packaged together

    Got my package yesterday of about 25 CDs from the recent sale at their web site. No damage to speak of. Took a month to get to Vancouver from Kentucky because they used RR Donnelly which also charged me a $7.95 handling fee on top of the $64 I paid for shipping. ImportCDs said they might refund this if I send proof, which I did. Now waiting.

    Was just about to order a bunch of the EJ SHM Japan discs and the sale pricing disappeared. Sonofa . . .

    That's the total shipping for the entire order of 30 CDs - some got sent individually by USPS after the box which arrived before the box. They charge $1.99 per disc + $5.00 base rate to Canada. For that amount they could have used 2nd-day FedEx but I suspect RR Donnelly charges them very little and ImportCDs keeps the rest.

    Well I guess if they charge per CD, but it's ridiculous when you consider how small of a box 30 CDs could fit in!

    If I wait for the 10% off sale it's worth it as all of what I bought were already cheaper than anywhere else. Still, for the money I wish their shipping method was better.

    They jacked up the eBay prices on most of the 2019 Elton John SHM-CDs but no discounts yet.

    Yes, some eBay prices went way up and the 20% off $65+ disappeared again. It may have to do with an email I received, that they are behind on shipping due to efforts to keep employees safe. They are probably trying to throttle back the new orders.

    I'd say mission accomplished.

    Yeah, I have about 20 items in my cart, and prices went up around 30% across the board.

    Do they have a 10% off sale every once in a while? Looking at something on their site (not available on ebay).

    Twice a year, but sometimes they sneak in an extra one.

    Bought something from them on ebay. After 5 weeks, nothing. Wrote them asking for a shipping date. Next day, cancellation and money refunded. Which is fine I guess, but they sat on my money for 5 weeks.

    Bought many times from them without issue.

    Only had an issue once but it was frustrating. Had to return a record and their directions for this were unique and communication was non-existent. After I sent back the record, it was 2 weeks of messages I'd send them requesting an update until I finally threatened to contact my credit card company.

    To buy things without any need for returning or exchange, they're fine. But otherwise,...

    No, but when there is you will see it on their main page.

    Thanks for the coupon code. It's funny because I order from different places, but the bill always comes back from "directtoyou LLC". This must be that big distributor, selling via a number of store fronts.

    Yeah, they also own WOW and DeepDiscountDVD. Generally bare bones customer service, in my experience, but prices can be rock bottom.

    If you pre-order a few cds with different release dates, do they ship individually on each release date?

    Thanks

    Usually, yes. Keep in mind though that they won't necessarily have the CD on release date.
