The USPS SUCKS

If that's the case, I am just going to wait a few days to see what they say and just request a cancellation. These two CDs are out of stock everywhere so there is no way this seller is going to get any.

I’m sure that they must have a supplier who has them. I can’t imagine listing something they couldn’t acquire.

I inquired and asked when these CDs were shipped and my response was a full refund. It does not appear that this seller was going to be able to get these CDs in stock. If I had known that they were selling these without any stock, I wouldn't have wasted my time. That Blakey HQCD has been out of print for about a year.

That’s too bad he didn’t have them but not unsurprising. I noticed that someone had left him negative feedback complaining he didn’t have the item in stock. Fortunately, you got your money back.

A few weeks ago I ordered a used cd via Amazon and later realised I already had it.  It went into the USPS system and never came out.  I used the Amazon site to inform the dealer who immediately refunded my money. It's better to be lucky than smart.

Ordered a single CD from disogs seller. It supposedly shipped via Media Mail on April 5th. Still haven't received it, 3 weeks later.

So I messaged the seller twice, once to ask if they could confirm that the CD actually shipped on April 5th and again to ask for the USPS tracking number. No reply for 4 days so I had to open a ticket. Discogs actually suspends the seller's account until they respond.

Man, you’ve had some bad luck lately.

It is strange that these two events happened back to back like this. It's been many years since I've had any problems... maybe even a decade or more.

On the positive side, if this discogs seller stiffs me in a way that PayPal can't give me a refund, it's not a lot of money.

I finally got a delivery confirmation for the 5 CDs that I returned. It only took 43 days for the box to get from Chattanooga, TN to Myrtle Beach, SC. It tracked a total of once, four days after I mailed it.

Somewhat interesting tracking situation ... I had an LP coming from Denmark, and scheduled for arrival today, a scant six days after shipping and absolutely astonishing for the present global situation. Yet, I joked to my wife that they hit the brakes too late and ended up dropping it off at West Palm Beach - a wee bit too far south.

And yet.

Since then it's remained in tracking status "Expected Delivery by Monday May 17" while its been successively scanned at Fort Myers, Sarasota, Tampa and Ybor City. And now it has left Ybor City which would mean next stop, Plant City. 

And still: Expected Delivery Monday. So is it possible Plant City will send out a special truck to deliver today, once they get it?

I first expected two more days to get to me, and when I saw arrive Ybor City, I figured it wouldn't move again before the early morning hours, on the way to Plant City for regular delivery tomorrow.

And yet - usually they have been much quicker to change to "en route - arriving late" status then leaving the "delivery today" summary on the tracking screen.

The Japanese postal authorities have announced they are resuming EMS (Express Mail Shipping) to the US. I received the following email from CD Japan.


*****

Japan Post announced to resume shipping with EMS for the U.S.from June 1, 2021.

Due to rising transportation costs, Japan Post will introduce additional fees for EMS addressed to the U.S. effective of June 1. These additional shipping fees will take effect with CDJapan's shipping fees as well.

Note that a large increase in EMS items are expected immediately upon resuming its service and delivery may be subject to delays for the time being.

Following this update, these additional EMS fees will also apply to packages addressed to Zone 2.

[Zone 2]
North America
Oceania
Europe
Central America
Middle East

Haven't been any new posts here after Delta arrived, but I definitely have an f-ed up situation. Scheduled delivery September 7 from Denver, Media Mail. Reached Jacksonville the morning of September 3rd. Didn't leave Jacksonville until September 5, and didn't make it to Tampa/Ybor City in the usual one day.  It already shows as "Arriving Late" on this, the expected delivery day. That's total bullshit.

Why does import CDs use DHL?? Really slows things down - at least around here.

Via Media Mail:  Ordered from Dusty Groove on Monday evening, and got a shipping notice on Tue, 11/23.

The initial USPS estimated delivery date was supposed to be 11/30 (Tue next week), by 9pm…

But I just got word that it was delivered about 10 minutes ago — fully 4½ days EARLY!!  Again, via Media Mail.

Royal Mail and Poste Italiane suck too! Shipped registered from UK it disappeared over the Channel. Guess in a couple of years Tom Hanks will knock at the door with my records.

If you're referring to Wilson that was a soccer ball not a coconut, and lost at sea, to boot.
