    Amount of Duties and/or Taxes:
    $137.71 CAD
    Tax should have been $55 so they charged you $82 in fees?  That seems wrong their website shows it should only be $56? https://www.ups.com/ca/en/shipping/zones-and-rates/customs-clearance.page
    It's based on the Canadian $$'s, so you'd need to convert the USD paid to CDN dollar to get the proper amount.  Plus if you scroll to the bottom there's a bunch of possible addon charges.

    Friends don't let friends use UPS standard to ship over the border.   10c only offers UPS Mail Innocations or  UPS Ground/Standard.  Always go for Mail Innovations.  Then it's Canada Post that processes the customs, so it's only $10 + tax instead of $80+tax.

    UPS has a horrible reputation for horrible brokerage fees.  Other couriers do it, but UPS is the worst :(  Ideally you try and have foreign packages come through regular mail services opposed to couriers.

    Yes, that was converted to Canadian. UPS actually worked out better for me, ended up only paying $55 canadian for 2 boxes.

    $55 CDN dollars in total for 2 Box Sets? Not too shabby at all.

    I think the fact remains that this set was a nice way to receive all the studio albums, whether re-release or original as in the case of Backspacer and Lightning Bolt, in one nice complete package.  

    The Limited available with the content as a whole, as with the numbered COA included, isn't something for the vinyl audiophile per se.....but more for the vinyl collector "completeist".

    I don't believe this is a set that will rival the Benny in terms of rarity or price, but I'm very glad to be getting it nonetheless.
    Well it rivals the Benny in rarity, 500 (or 600?) vs 2000. but that rarity won't translate into crazy dollar amounts like the Benny has.
    It’s not even in the same conversation as a Benny because the content on the Benny package is tough to find, these albums are all readily available.


    Don't worry, you're going to see 50 posts that say "FS 2017 BOX SET - LIMITED TO 500".  And the first post underneath it says something like "great guy, great seller"

    Meanwhile, the vitalogy post says "sealed."  Great deal!

    This was a total rip off ... a bunch of used open albums thrown/ stuffed  into a box. Tenclub should be ashamed of themselves for this -- I am ashamed of myself for buying it.

    I’m baffled. Used records??? Because they’re not sealed? :confused:

    anyway

    My box set was delivered today, just for the record (haha) Lightning Bolt and Backspacer were both on black vinyl. The set is a really nice complement to the previous two box sets.  

    Pretty pumped to listen to Riot Act, Avocado and especially Binaural. I’m gonna crank that mutha up LOUD when the drums kick in on Rival.

    yes.

    i opened the bs/lb copies in my box set and they were both black, for people that care/pay attention.

    lol at the idea that unsealed = used.

    Probably because people had this mentality...

    even the images in the header post shows unsealed records. maybe people should be pissed that they got a sealed backspacer and a sealed lightning bolt instead of the other way around.

    Yeah, that comment surprised me. I didn’t order the boxset, but I did order the Petty boxsets. The box itself was sealed but the albums were not. I didn’t think that made them “used.” Not that it would’ve mattered. I tore the plastic off and blasted the lp’s.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

  • Remember the dreaming that went on once these were sold out? People were thinking maybe they were going to get handwritten notes from Ed inside the box or maybe that the vinyl was going to be colored.

    Now there's some disappointment with people getting exactly what they ordered. It seems like people had their hopes a little too high.

    I just want a tour announcement. And I'd like a new album where the lyrics and music have been inspired by today's tensions. Is that asking too much?

    * Oh... I'm getting custom charges on the three albums I purchased. F**ks sakes.
