Myke is retired and on a pension? I had no idea.
I waited, and waited for a 20% off last year, for the big Tom Petty box. When it never happened, I went with the 15%. No way was I paying full price for a 6 album box, on a pension. I watch these sales closely. For many years now.
The speed with which it's passing at though, is mind boggling. Really. I moved into this townhouse, 7 months ago, and a dear friend's baby just turned 5 months old, and both feel like last week !?!?
*** Per my online records, my last 20% off sale at Music Direct was July, 2018. " " " " " " " " " " " Acoustic Sounds was October, 2017.
I'm not being negative, but rather realistic. If there were no 20% off deals at Christmas, and MD upped their sales to have a $99.00 minimum, I doubt we'll ever see one again, from either of these two competitors.
At 60 going on 61, this is the fastest it's ever passed. My last 6 years of retirement have flown by, and my grandsons are growing like weeds.
Gotta repeat Dave's praises, and the record just shipped out today ! :laugh: But seriously folks, this will be my 7th buy from Dave, and I know from experience, I'll be very happy. Hadn't bought a record in 35 days, but one of Dave's is a little too hard to pass up, even on a budget.
Did we already laugh at this from earlier in the same thread? MYKE compliments someone on the extra vinyl in the album he bought, prompting arcamsono to comment: "I'm naive. What's that mean extra vinyl mean?"
