Upcoming releases - Pre-ordering

I've noticed alot more now of web sites doing pre-orders and unless these pre-orders are going to come with some sort of bonus or even a slight reduction in cost, what is the point pre-ordering....why not wait until it is released, pay for it, then you know it's on the way.

What happens if you have to pay when you pre-order and say you use paypal but with it still a few weeks or even a month away before it is available, then in the worst case scenario after a few more weeks, it gets lost in the mail or simply just does not arrive, you have lost your money because the time would have expired to do a claim!!!!

Like with this Arc Angels supposedly pre-order premium package that is available and more than likely, the package will be exactly the same as the official release, what is the point in pre-ordering it now and paying for it, yet it might not be available for another month????

I just don't see any point pre-ordering and paying for it unless it will be like a limited edition or have some other form of bonus attached otherwise why do it? why not just wait until it is released????

Does anyone pre-order????

I pre-ordered Steel Panther because the price was ridiculous. I also pre-ordered Amber Pacific's second disc because that price was beyond ridiculous. Generally, I don't pre-order but I am definitely thinking about it for the new Danger Danger and Treat albums if they can offer some decent deals.

 

I'm pretty lazy, so I like the idea of having CDs as soon as they're released rather than relying on me trying to remember to order on a particular date. But current financial situation means I don't pre-order, ever, but the two CDs above are extenuating circumstances.

I pre-order stuff from Amazon or Play.com or HMV if they are at a good price (HMV do really good prices on Frontiers release compared to everywhere else I find)) .If they are not at the top of my shopping list, then I wait a few weeks until after they are released and get them cheaper.

Yeah, you guys in the UK seem really lucky with those two (Play.com and Amazon) offering all this free shipping. That would pretty much seal the deal for me on anything cool coming out. Everything we get here in Australia is butchered by import postage costs. :(

I only pre-order from Amazon

 

But when you pre-order through Amazon, they don't charge your credit card until they send it.....Is that correct ???

That's where I got Steel Panther from and yes, I believe you are correct. I had no problems getting that in a timely manner. I think I actually got it a few days earlier than I expected.

Yes but that's why I wait until it's very close to the release date like within a week that way it's not that big of deal.

I'll never pre-order months ahead of time and I'll never pre-order Hurricane cds from a lying scumbag thief either. :whistle:

Correct Dave, only when the order is being processed.

 

My Amazon warehouse is between my house and work ,so about 15 minutes away. I always get next day delivery from everything from them without fail.

This new Arc Angel CD/DVD will be released and pre-orders shipped on August the 25th.

They still have not replied to the email asking if this premium package is going to be different in any way to the official release so I think I will wait until a couple of days before 25th before I order it or maybe even wait and see what comes out on ebay.

Why pay now when they won't even reply to an email <_<

I pre-order a lot. I'll often look on Play.com at the list of the new releases over the next couple of months and pre-order the one's I want, otherwise I tend to forget. They often give freebies (i.e, bonus discs/posters and other such junk) with the early editions so is often worth doing.

 

Sites/stores love you to pre-order, so they have an idea how much demand they'll be for a product and don't overstock, so is in their interests to give discounts/free stuff.

 

P.s. I'm guessing that most of this free stuff isn't sanctioned by the band. With my pre-order of Megadeth's "United Abominations" I got a free beer mat - to hold the same devil juice that Mustaine spent half his life battling against (and the reason why he's now a kinda pale yellow-ish colour)

With Mustaine's notorious battle with alocohol I'm not sure he'd have agreed to that one - perhaps it should've come with a free ready-to-transplant liver?

 

Couldnt you have used the disc as a beermat?? :tumbsup:

With your Fair Warning collection you never need to buy another beer mat for the rest of your life! ;)

Well as I have several Frontline/Transit/Subway albums then I can be the main supplier should the World Frisbee-throwing Championships ever come to England.

Can you frisbee Transit's 'Dirty Pleasures' and 'Heartcore' to my house? Also, I still need an original copy of Frontline's 'Heroes'. Thanks! Oh, and I guess I'll take 'Hold on to your dreams' by Subway if you have it to toss away.
