    I don't know what else to say then.  You can get it elsewhere but it always runs the risk of missing out on some potential mystery items.

    an MP3???!!! no way! that's killer! woooohoooo!!!
  • epieepie Posts: 209
    I am torn as well.  This like the old "Let's Make a Deal" show.  Give up the known for the unknown behind door #?  I am probably reaching here but I see 10c lists shipping weight as 3lbs.....hmmmm.  I guess nothing wrong holding out for a couple of more weeks before making a decision as to whether to cancel or not.  If it suddenly becomes sold out, perhaps that will be an indication as well as to something special for 10c members only.  Cheers all!

    This is a nice demonstration of what 10C needs to do better. WHY oh why would they not clearly let us know if there is something different about the 10C version, even if that's ALL they say, so that people can make an informed decision about how they are spending their hard earned money? Or, for that matter, why wouldn't they immediately let us know that it will also be available on Amazon, etc? I think this is extremely inconsiderate of Ten Club.

    +1. The same thing crossed my mind. I'd gladly buy one from 10C if it meant a chance to, say, get a variant colored vinyl or a unique sticker. However if it's the same record being sold and shipped at nearly 1.5x the total cost as thru some other retailers then I'd rather buy it elsewhere and later reallocate the saved money to 10C for tickets and tour travel. Heck, I'd willingly buy one for a few extra dollars and vote with my money to support 10C; however it's not such a black/white decision when it's $45 vs. $30. I will buy one, I'm just not yet sure where.

  • Would people please stop repeating that Amazon is giving away FREE MP3s when ordering this from them?

    If you have to pay for the vinyl, then it's INCLUDED in the total price, not FREE.

    Just like when Amazon states free shipping for Prime members. It's not free when I pay a yearly fee...

  • I never said it didn't pay for itself. But don't call it free when there's still a fee.

    I ordered from 10C but the mp3's are free from amazon.  You're getting the product you ordered at a low price with mp3s that no one else is providing.
     
    I guess you can carve it up if you want. We can say they're charging $16 for the vinyl and that the additional mp3s that come with it are $16.  Good deal either way LOL

    Just cancel your 10c order and get it through Amazon.  I sent 10c an email yesterday and they cancelled it right away.  Saving myself $12 shipping and get the mp3s.  Nice deal.

    So, what you're saying is that shipping and MP3 downloads are free? Awesome!

    I don't think there is any indication, which may be more of the problem, that the vinyl pre-order from TC will not include a digital download, it would be a matter of whether that is done online at or on the release date or if it comes with the vinyl shipped.  

    Moreover, there are items that are listed in the TC page that may not come with the regular retail, which again is not entirely clear, but the pre-sale at TC mentions more specifics 

    Double Vinyl LP, Tip-on style gatefold jacket, Soft touch finish with gloss varnish, Featuring photos and director's note from Danny Clinch 

    The fact that the shipping weight estimated from TC is 3 lbs tells me that the package is going to be different.  Enough for justifying the different shipping costs and Amazon's autorip mp3 program, I really don't know.

    If your not into coloured vinyl then its not worth it. And the chance of getting a coloured copy is slim. You can always wait for people to start selling them for 100+ days after the sale if you NEED it. 
    I always think back to jack white and TMR. All the extras that came with that set and how great the packaging was. And the shipping was awesome. 
    But I still support 10c and bought my copy from them.

    When I pay for the Vinyl at 10c I get no MP3s unless I pay for them elsewhere. When I pay for the vinyl at Amazon I don't have to pay for the MP3s, hence they're free. I receive them at no cost. I don't have to make a separate purchase. You can play your semantics game all day long, but if you calculate the price for the vinyl ($33.90) at 10c + $11.99 shipping + mp3s at Amazon ($13.99)  vs. the vinyl ($32.48) + mp3s ($0) + shipping ($0) at Amazon you're absolutely getting those MP3s free from Amazon when you buy the vinyl from them. So I can pay about $60 by going through 10c or just under $33 going through Amazon. Hmmm, really tough choice.

    Amazon is cheaper than 10c is without the mp3, so yeah...the mp3 is free. Not just "included."
  • I'm far from mad, and you guys can call it whatever the hell you want, but there is no such thing as free. I don't recall asking what the better deal was either, as I was simply trying to define a single word. I'm done arguing about it.

    Maybe because I haven't been a regular poster since this site was called Synergy is the reason that my thoughts don't matter? Being nice and all that crap doesn't apply to those with low post counts?

    After I order ten times or so it is free. I'd be making those orders anyway and I get the other 90% of my orders shipped for free.

    I for one am not trying to silence you, nor do I hope that you stop posting. Welcome back, and I hope you stay! I was just responding to your premise regarding the cost of the MP3s and your request for people to stop calling it "free." That's all. It wasn't personal, and had absolutely nothing to do with your post count. You made a statement and others presented their counter arguments. We were having a discussion on a discussion board or forum. No ill will here!

    agree above.
    Example of what isn't free: the crappy analog shirt. That is an example of something included in the cost, since it costs $20 more to get the "free" shirt.

    not this shit again. just because someone disagreed with you, has zero to do with your post count. who even looks at that number?
