    The dreaded “Action needed: please review your new delivery date” overnight emails have returned. I’ve received the terrifying warning twice within the past week. Fortunately, I was able to feed the beast before my order was canceled!

    I got an email with a delayed title (Oscar Peterson—Night Train Verve AP series) but it didn’t require any action from me—it was just a notification that it was coming later than originally posted.

    My Thelonious Monk Genius V 1 and Pharoah Sanders’ Karma Verve AP albums are arriving today, right on time. Good on Target for this one.

    Looks like they want to cancel my pre-order ($16.75). They moved the release to Nov 2023??

    my shipment is targeted for delivery next Thursday. I certainly hope so since I cancelled the one arriving Friday from Amazon...:sweating:

    Just got UPS shipping notices, and I suspect they are the Stones boxes. :goodie:
    Quite relieved...

    I had some Amazon points that brought the cost of the set to about half of what I paid via Target during the sale so just I ordered there since I haven’t yet gotten a shipping notice from Target. Just tried to cancel Target and apparently it’s being processed, so no dice. So, I’m about to (temporarily) be the owner of two sets….

    I think they may be referring to points earned by using an Amazon rewards credit card.

    Yup. Shopping for records with points does help in keeping a happy marriage. Of course in order to earn points, you have to spend money…

    If you use their regular card rather than the branded Visa, I think the math works better by taking a 5% refund against the bill each month rather than letting the points accumulate.

    Mine is on the way too. Kinda shocked that Target didn’t catch it.

    Did we ever get a pressing number on these? Not seeing any clear numbers on google.

    The buy 3 cancel 2 discount. I know they never really do, but I assumed I may have different results with such a high priced item. They probably lost money on it.

    Their % profit margin (whether it's a slim profit or turns out to be a loss) is the same on 1 box vs 3 boxes. If they lose xx dollars on 1 box, they're going to lose 3x that amount on 3 boxes. So if it's a money losing product at the average unit price after the B2G1 discount, it actually helps their profitability to have someone cancel 2. That may sound like rationalization for what some might consider gaming their system, but I'm only talking about the math/profitability effect, not the ethics of it.

    By allowing 2 to be cancelled, they do lose revenue though.

    It IS pretty quirky how/why they allow this though. But it's also not some convoluted/hidden loophole, so for whatever reason, they choose to allow it.

    But they also have some customer unfriendly quirks as well, like if you use a bunch of Target Circle dollars to buy an item and then return it, you only get refunded what you paid after the application of the Target Circle dollars - so you lose those permanently, which is kind of a bummer.
