Last week, Dec. 28th, I ordered a seven piece harmonica set from this Chinese website that I buy a ton of stuff from. It just arrived today (Thursday, Jan. 3rd). Considering that we had a weekend followed by a holiday in that stretch of time, I thought the shipping speed was nothing less than amazing. When I opened the box, there was an invoice inside from Musicians Friend. They are the ones who actually sent it, instead of some guy in Hong Kong. The exact same harmonica set that MF sells on their website for $39.99, I paid $30.91 including shipping. Have any of you ever seen or heard of this? By the way, the harmonica in G sounds pretty good. I'm going to try out the rest of them in a few minutes.


I rock; therefore, I am.

Hmmmm... sounds like someone is taking advantage of some currency swaps somewhere (and it ain't yuan to dollar) along the trail to make a profit...

curious

Well, sounds as if you DO have reason to gloat! laugh

That kind of stuff rarely, if ever, happens to ME, so enjoy your good fortune. AND the harmonicas. wink

Shipping from China is free or very cheap for items that are small or light. That sounds great, but it means that some companies are sending items in separate packages, for no reason. That is not good news for postal services that are already stretched thin. In Sweden, it got so bad that now the country is imposing fees on any incoming package, from anywhere. I don`t mean token fees. It`s not even worth sending birthday or Christmas presents.


Same old surprises, brand new cliches-

I have ordered from amazon and gotten things from one of the big stores and a letter asking for me to leave 5 star feedback for ebay, so this is happening.

On a recent SOUTH PARK, the CEO of Amazon was drawn to look like some weird space alien type guy,(who's back of his head was drawn to look like a butt) sitting in front of a computer with a set of headphones on listening to what everyone in the world was saying and doing through the microphones inside all those ALEXA ECHOS. crazy
