Popmarket is an online retailer with a focus on music. They usually have some nice deals on records and CDs but I usually focus on the vinyl

 

They relaunched their website and in honor of this, all orders that use the code "WELCOMEBACK15" get 15% off on their orders until 4/24/2017

 

It says free shipping sales over $100 but I order ZIggy Stardust and Metallica "Kill Em All" for less than $25 and got free shipping 

 

Check the sales page for all deals but some things I saw (Prices are before 15% off code)

 

https://www.popmarke...nyl-lp-180-gram $10 Metallica Kill Em All vinyl Reissue

 

https://www.popmarke...nyl-lp-180-gram $12 Bowie The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Start dust ....

 

https://www.popmarke...l-lp-180-gramam $12 Bowie Aladdin Sane

 

There are more but these were ones I found that were not listed on their sales page

Those Metallica reissues are awful. The center hole tends to be off center so any sustained notes end up sounding like they warble in and out of tune as the needle catches up.

I had heard that about the Metallica reissues as well. There is a reason these are $10 and give you free shipping. New vinyl is such a crapshoot with quality of pressings.  At least the old stuff doesn't cost an arm and a leg. If I spend a buck on something at a thrift store and it's a little scratched up, no big deal but if you drop $20 on a new slab of wax and it comes in warped or poorly pressed, I get pissed
