CDJapan vs Customs

September 5th, 2008 (05:48 pm)

Customs hit me up for $14.59

But I got my CG R2 OST I first press with the poster of the cover & true tears Memories book + DVD with some nice wallpapers i must say on it.

So now i'll rip my OST and do some scans. ^^
And some how un-curl the poster, because it's made of win.

HLJ had me paid 15€ for a figure worth 40€ -_-""

WHUT? First press with poster? How come I didn't get that fancy shit? It's first press too I believe it was shipped the day it got released!!
*goes crying in a corner*

it was wrapped up in green paper, the stuff they occasional wrap CDs up in to protect them during shipping, and had this piece of paper wrapped around it saying: "No, 125 / VTCL-60071 / something in Japanese / CD title"

I didn't expect a poster, or anything extra, because I thought the "bonus" was it was in a digipak and not a plastic case.

The true tears book make mine ship late. XD

Where did you order yours from?

OH GEASS NO!

the thing with yesasia is... they don't guarantee you the first press. With CDJapan you know you'll get first press when you order. gokumew2 talked about it once, and now I understand.

Gah -_- That should teach me to be less cheap and not always rely on YA because of the free shipping. *sigh*

I also asked a friend of mine who's ordering a lot of Visual Kei music and according to her YA removes the first press extras that are OUTSIDE the CD box... It happened a lot to her so she stopped ordering from YA and the other shop delivered WITH the extras. I'm shocked.

hmmm well when i ordered Nakajima Megumi's Ranka Lee's Debut Single CD from YA, they did send the photocard with it... but i really didn't care if i got it or not. I didn't even know there was a poster with the CG R2 OST XD still deciding how to unroll it.

I do like the free shipping that they offe tho, since CDJapan it gets pricey.

I'll take the habit to compare a little more often from now on. If the difference is only a few euros I can handle that (like for UVERworld's G00 limited single, CDJapan is cheaper this time!)

Jun look

True. But this is the first time I've had to paid customs on something I ordered from CDJapan. So it = shock for me. lol

Hmm...did you buy more than usual that it cost more than usual ?
That's the only reason I could think that you would get taxed by custom.

you're kidding

you know why?
Because apparently and how oh so random, they claim there is an EMS handling fee.

An obviously if that was true this wouldn't be the first time... since all my orders from CDJapan are EMS. Weird. lol
