Been trying to keep my media purchases down this year, but sales like this are my kryptonite.
Just placed a third, and final, order.

AIR FORCE ONE, guys, on sale.

It's just the OST that's on sale, not the Deluxe Edition.

DAMMIT! Why did this have to happen? I bought about 15 new CDs and I need them like I need a hole in the head! But I couldn't resist! LOL

Altogether, 21 for an average price of $7.04 shipped.
That's including Presumed Innocent.

Williams, Desplat, Newton Howard, Poledouris, Safan, Westlake, Mancini, Grusin, Doyle, Beltrami, Portman, Eyquem...amongst others.

I'm especially looking forward to exploring Kouneva's Woman Astronaut concept album.

Despite good prices, sales like this basically no longer "exist". If I ordered one item here, for £5 (in the European version of the shop), shipping amounts to about £13 -- almost three times the cost of the CD itself. And again, that's the European shop, not the US. A total of £18 would then be more than I've ever paid for a normal, non-limited CD! So the opposite of a sale.

Crazy times we're living in.

I totally agree. I have lost interest in pursuing most titles now. In the past I would have jumped on the sales from LLL and Varese, not interested anymore, the main reason being the costs of the shipping.

I plunged…
I’ve had little self control this year on getting stuff…

Except when it comes to the Varese Encore releases.

I will take advantage of the sale and indeed order a few things that I have not yet so far, along with PRESUMED INNOCENT. However, even though I'm in the EU, I will use the US store, which seems cheaper for me.

Shipping cost stops me from buying a lot of these, but at $5.- a piece, there are some nice things in there.

However, I find myself UNABLE to change my e-mail address.... even though my e-mail address in Varèse Sarabande no longer exists (the service ceased operation).
That is really annoying, as I don't want to open up another account with another e-mail (as I would loose the overview over all my orders over the years).



PS: I contacted Varèse Sarabande, they updated my e-mail and replied to my inquiry quickly. Ace!

You never know if it is finally sold out. The only indication seems to be when they say final copies. The CD The Woman Astronaut was listed as sold out and I bought it somewhere else. Now it is back in stock. Same with Aliens.

Anyone get a shipping notice yet for any of their orders?

I'm in the USA and no movement on my order placed 5/21...

Weird, I was about to check out my cart but now half the items are on sale and the others are back to regular price. Is anyone else experiencing this glitch? Or did the sale suddenly end?

There's no longer a banner for it on the home page, so I'm pretty sure it ended.

As you say, some of the items in it are still on sale- just like some things from last years Spring Cleaning sale are still discounted.
