Anyone get sale prices through there barcode reader part of the app? Finally tried it today for the first time and everything I scanned either came up full price or just did not show a price at all even the stuff in the sale section. They make it a nightmare to find anything on clearance. I would have loved to pick up some more deals but I ended up just leaving with nothing.

I've had employees tell me to use that method when I've inquired about how sometimes they stock records that ring up on sale But are not marked as such. I've had the same experience as you every time.

Thanks, glad to know it at least was not just me. Too bad because it could be an awesome tool to have if it worked at all since the majority of the employee's at my store have pretty much zero interest in helping at all if it involves any effort whatsoever.

Pretty sure that is the exact aesthetic UO tries to deliver with their branding.... "Apathy towards pretty much everything, bro."

sounds fantastic actually. crisp, good bass, no issues at all.

 

only annoying thing is the side breaks. i get that it will be hard for an album like this with the interludes, but still. the side a/b breaks between mad interlude and mad, and the side b/c breaks between don't touch my hair and the following interlude which go so well together.

It sounds like what you may be seeking is called a compact disc.

I meant to bring this up when the $2 records were popping up back in September or so and someone mentioned employees telling them to do this. I tried it out and I'm pretty sure I know why it doesn't really help for figuring out clearance or sale priced items: Basically, the item has to be in stock on their website to ring up and give you a price. It's essentially just you checking the price on their website. This is almost no help at all for clearance/remainder items that are long gone from their online inventory.

most records manage to not put the side breaks between the intro track and the track it was intro-ing. go figure!

Even so, the online price often doesn't match the in store price.
