There are so many 2007 releases that I haven’t picked up yet, a lot of them are out now around the world but will be released in the U.S. in early 2008. I decided to take a look at Ebay and some online shops last Wednesday, I found two auctions ending Thanksgiving so I watched, waited, and won! Considering the holiday weekend, both CDs were shipped Friday and arrived today.
Airbourne – Runnin’ Wild (2007) – $18.50 (includes shipping): This was a deal I couldn’t beat anywhere! The seller was from the U.S. and he had low shipping ($4). I’ve been waiting patiently on this CD to either show up at my local record store or find a deal at a couple of my favorite online shops. I haven’t found this for less than $20 plus shipping…..until now. I had a high bid of sixteen dollars and won with $14.50. So far, an excellent record.
Primal Fear – New Religion (2007) – $11.51 (includes shipping): Another album high on my want list for a few months but still commanding no less than $17 plus shipping at online stores. I got lucky as this seller had four separate auctions for this CD ending within an hour. I watched all four and got the best deal at $7.01. The shipping was about the same as Airbourne ($4.50) and it was another U.S. seller so that meant faster shipping. My only disappointment was that the auction listed the “limited edition digipak” and I thought I was getting the limited edition digipak with the two bonus videos. Unfortunately, no videos but the digipak is actually available in both versions, I just have the regular one. No worries, I’m still psyched at getting this for a bargain. So far, another solid album.
Totals – $30.01 for 2 CDs that are currently imports.
