    Pretty sure this is the issue. Warped records seem to be happening more and more frequently for me (though not this frequently). 
    Basically, I don't think it's the store's fault.

    The unfortunate reality of vinyl in 2020 is that it is really hard to get perfect vinyl.  A lot of plants will only accept returns from labels if defects affects playablity.  I would say a good amount of these are probably like this when the label got them and in turn arrived at the store like this.  You say these are new and sealed so stores can't open new vinyl coming in to check them all.  The QC problems really go all the way back to the source, QC is a problem but it's a plant issue.  I will say the mail is slower now and it is giving vinyl more opportunities to warp in hot trucks as well.  I've seen a lot of warped records posted in the Metal and Core Collectors facebook group this summer.

    aopps42 reacted to w0rn in The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)   
    The "scam" I posted a couple weeks ago was about how I reordered a bunch of records I'd purchased when they were ~70% off. Deep Discount had previously responded to one of my emails saying to notify them when something returned to stock if it had been in an order that was cancelled. I did that and gave everyone here a heads up, assuming a lot of others had experienced immediate DD cancellations. The reaction was... something.
    I didn't bother following up when I heard back since a number of folks felt the need to step in front of a bullet for a mega online retailer with clearly suspect selling practices, but hey, to each their own.
    The upshot is that DD responded to my purchase with an email that said something like, oh, actually, when we said you could reorder that stuff, we meant it had to be within 10 days of your first order. Details!
    Is the reorder-a-cancelled-purchase-within-10-days-to-get-the-original-value a stone cold fact? Given who we're dealing with, probably not. But I received a notice this morning that Liquid Swords (one of the July 4 sale titles) was miraculously back in stock a week later. 😐 Shocking 😐
    I went to DD and saw a number of other titles that had been on sale last week. I placed (another) order for Liquid Swords, then sent DD an email with the details of the two orders. We'll see what happens.
    User poll: Do you want to hear if DD ends up refunding the difference? To vote yes, reply "yes." To vote no, put on your cool kids shades and fire off a pithy quote reply. 😎

The series kicks off with the first-ever vinyl pressing of 2001’s The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most, set for release on July 31st, 2020. A long-awaited vinyl re-release of 2000’s The Swiss Army Romance as well as a first-time pressing of 2002’s MTV Unplugged 2.0 will also follow later this year, and all will be available in multiple collectible, limited edition variants in addition to a non-limited edition run of standard black vinyl.    Two of the limited edition color vinyl versions of Places, in addition to black vinyl, are now available for pre-order HERE. The splatter color vinyl can be purchased only via the DashboardConfessional.com online store, while the cloudy orange and clear vinyl is available only via independent record stores, a community that has long-supported Dashboard Confessional. A yellow and blue vinyl, limited to only 1,000 copies, can be found exclusively at VinylMePlease.com, beginning tomorrow, July 10th.    The band has also announced an upcoming partnership with Mondo to release three EPs for the very first time on vinyl this year: 2001’s So Impossible, 2002’s Summers Kiss, and a newly created Spider-Man 2 EP. Mondo is an expanding enterprise with a passionate love of film, art, music and pop culture, best known for creating limited-edition posters, vinyl soundtracks, premium collectibles and games. Based in Austin, Texas, the team collaborates with an international network of talented artists and creators to produce the highest quality products inspired by licensed properties and original IPs. More details about the limited edition EPs will be announced later this year.

    Be as detailed as you can. You should get either an email/call within 24hrs from your local branch looking into it with more info than what tracking provides. Anytime I’ve done this, I usually receive package within a few days—could be coincidental but my packages seem to start moving again.

    I mean personally, I find it's great to get some stuff for cheap with coupon/ free shipping because we know they aren't really selling it that cheap. But if they do, awesome! Perspectives I guess
