    I know there are several threads asking questions about popmarket.com and the various old iterations of it, but it seems like now might be a good time to start a thread for found deals on the site. I just received a physical (!!!) piece of mail asking me to visit the new site with the following tempting lines:

    • FREE standard domestic shipping on ALL orders!
    • 10% off when you spend $75 with coupon code VINYL620

    Now they're the same company as Deep Discount, and they also have a version of the "Blowout Bin" but it's called the "Closeout Crate" and I have noticed the prices aren't exactly the same as they are on DD, so uh, maybe @hutlock has some time to help do a comprehensive analysis?

    What's next? Camelot Music re-launches with a "Liquidation Locker"?

  3. They also sell against themselves and Collector's Choice (who they own along with importcds) on Discogs

    Well I can’t exactly shrink from that challenge, can I? Hahahaha

    Without diving too deep yet, yes, Pop Market has generally speaking got higher prices in their Closeout Crate than DD’s Bargain Bin. However, it does have certain advantages too.

    First and foremost, you don’t have to wade through NEARLY as much complete trash to find good stuff. It’s there, but not at DD levels. There is actually quite a lot of overlap between them as well, so if something eludes you at one site, you can always check the other.

    Second, PM has free shipping across the board, so you can order just one or two things and not worry about having to pay for shipping.

    Third, PM has an On Sale section as well as a Closeout Crate, which is clearly marked and displayed right on the landing page. Compared to DD, that’s a much easier time of it as far as looking for stuff you might be looking to save some dollars on.

    More to come, but that’s what I can say to start. Looking forward to digging in!

  5. Most of these prices can be beat easily elsewhere: discogs and Amazon.

    Ever since it stopped being a close out portal for Sony it’s been almost useless.

    ah yes, i miss the old popmarket with ridiculous deals, but there are plenty threads about that already.

    as mentioned above, it's just another version of importcds, deep discount, etc. and they're advertising a new site with "better deals".

    the threads for the aforementioned sites have been rife with deals for years. i'd encourage you to check out the new site before making blanket statements!

    I'd say it's been pretty useless for many years now. At one time, they did, as you state, have some great deals (e.g. the Miles Davis trumpet case). But then it became pretty much a snore after Sony dumped it--and this was long before the company that owns DeepDiscount bought them.

    Funny, I found nothing tempting about mine, threw it straight into the trash. :laugh:

    By all means people, please post any actual deals you find here. That would be much appreciated.

    Personally, I'm not gonna waste a minute of my own time searching their site..

    I’m think that @GentleSenator and I are going to just pass the deals back and forth between each other actually. Why would we share with you ungrateful lot? Hahahahaha

    Spent some time going through the PM site a bit and am slightly dismayed to report that after going through around 1,200 of the listings in the Closeout Crate, I didn’t see a single thing that isn’t ALSO to be found in DD’s Blowout Bin. Not one.

    Blowout Bin is however about a billion times more filled with foreign market stuff that none of us are likely to ever have heard of, but on the bright side you can sort it by format—if there’s a way to sort the CC I couldn’t find it while browsing on my phone at least.

    Pretty disappointing if PM just winds up being a less searchable version of DD in the end really.

    Will be very curious to hear if anyone lands this. That’s an amazing price!

    DD already has this listed as a Special Order item again, so hopefully SOMEONE here gets it this time!

    Looking at the exchanges between you, you really should just communicate by PM. :laugh:
