$4 LPs
We Are the Union – Great Leaps Forward
The Riot Before – Rebellion
The Swellers – Ups and Downsizing (Rust)
The Swellers - Ups and Downsizing (Dirt)
Hellmouth – Gravestone Skylines

$5 LPs
Have Nots – Proud

$2 10”s and 7”s
The Flatliners/The Snips – Split
Bomb The Music Industry – Everybody That You Love
The Swellers – Welcome Back Riders


This was my cart. $31 total. It was just about $20 for shipping. Totally unreasonable if you ask me. Should be about half of that.
Six 12" and three 7" records should only be $10 to ship? Maybe you're not familiar with how things work.

Regardless, after reading the concerns about shipping, I just changed our shipping policy in the webstore:

For all U.S. orders, the first LP is $4.90, and each additional 12" is $1, while each additional 7" is an extra 50 cents to add onto the price.

That means that your specific order will now cost like $12 or so.

Also really hoping the name of this sale doesn't get me sued by Subway.

Was thinking about grabbing one or two records, until I saw the above posts. Lame sauce.
If you literally are grabbing two records then your shipping will be $5.90. Not ridiculous at all really.

Just to prove my point, here is a mock order from the Bridge 9 store that includes 6 LPs and some 7"s:



As you can see, to ship the whole order Media Mail, I am only charged $5.60. If USPS (First Class or Priority) is chosen, then it changes to $15.

If you are all claiming that my original quarrel is unreasonable, please explain how Bridge 9 can send this for $5.60 but P+P can't.
Different shipping policies for different labels, that's all. You try another label, you might get charged $30. A lot of it depends on how mailorder works.

Does anyone know if all the vinyls come with an instant download?
Most do.
