    Did anyone preorder the Beach Boys Feel Flows set from Udiscover?
    Mine said it shipped and it's been on a fedex truck for over a week now. Ugh

    just beware that the in-stock status on udiscover/soundofvinyl is not always... accurate. if something is OOS basically everywhere it's likely UME doesn't actually have any either.

    Guess I’ll have some refunds to look forward to instead.

    Bummer. Have rewards points and multiple free shipping coupons. Cannot combine them. And the titles excluded from the sale are not free shipping either. Ridiculous to have to pay $11.57 to ship the GH LP...

    I had high hopes for combining % off coupons as well - a simple search online brings up a few of them. I’m not surprised they don’t allow it, though. Stacking them on top of the sale seems to be a thing of the past, unfortunately. However, I think rewards points and the rewards free shipping coupons should definitely be allowed. There has to be a way for them to program that into the web site.

    I noticed this in their FAQ yesterday. I wonder how long it’s been there (years?):
    Q: Can I combine my rewards points with other discount codes?
    A: Unfortunately, due to a technical limitation, it is not possible to combine rewards points and discount codes on the same purchase. We hear you, and we are currently investigating how to make this possible. Stay tuned!​

    I'd imagine they hired extra tech specialists to work around the clock in order to solve this nearly impossible limitation.

    What was the defect?

    a skip in a specific spot that under close inspection looked to have been a defect with the stamper. a bump in the groove, for lack of technical term.

    something similar to the defect with the first run of the gil evans tone poet release from a couple years back. no way to remove/dislodge.

    Hey, for those who count on the “points” you’re awarded for your purchases, check your account closely for recent purchases. I bought a few things via the Labor Day sale, and none appear to have calculated correctly. I’m a “silver” member at uDiscover and am supposed to get 5 points per dollar spent. I made three distinct purchases there, for a penny shy of 9, 15 and 15 dollars (excluding tax). I was awarded 16, 50 and 20 points accordingly. Even if they round DOWN to the lower dollar level, that should be 40, 70 and 70 points.

    Same thing at SoundOfVinyl. Made a purchase of 60.71 (pretax) and I’m “diamond” there (8 points/dollar spent). 60x8=480, but I was awarded 408 points.

    As if not letting you use points in conjunction with sales prices wasn’t enough of a scam, they appear to be under contributing to your account, too. All prices above were amounts paid POST-discount.

    I logged a ticket and we’ll see what response I get.

    I had a similar issue with points a couple times that I think caused me to lose points. on udiscover, if you apply your points, but then enter a coupon code, it says you can't do both. So you enter the coupon code because that was the better discount. Now those points are gone even though you didn't use them.

    Does the sale not work with "All Things Must Pass?"

    And why would they charge $11.79 to ship the GHarrison 3-cd digipak??

    Sounds like you’re looking at the UK site instead of the US site.

    That's what I was thinking, but I can't find a different site other than shop.udiscovermusic.com

    “Shop” is US. “Store” is UK.

    You’re right, that price/shipping is screwy. I know that earlier this wknd ATMP was getting discounts/free shipping but not anymore, apparently…

    Sept 7 is Tuesday...

    Nevertheless, is anybody else able to get the 25% discount applied at check-out (as it says in the popmarket website banner)?

    I ordered the re-press of Frampton Comes Alive from uDiscover, which for years has been nearly impossible to find. After reading this I figured I'd probably never see it, but somehow I got a shipping notification this morning. I just ordered Def Leppard's Hysteria, which appears to be equally as scarce these days. We'll see if it ever ships.

    For my first purchase yesterday, I tried to apply points (it even OFFERED me a chance to use my "rewards"). It then flashed that my points had been applied and my gift card created. THEN it flashed that since I was already using a discount, a further one could not be applied.

    I thought I'd "lost" my points, since the balance declined. But if I look at my "available rewards" I actually have a $15 off coupon there, because I "spent" my points. Maybe that helps?
