What's Amazon US & CA packaging like nowadays? I've avoided them for ages due to constantly receiving damaged items in the past. I'd usually prefer to purchase through a GB and pay that little bit extra just so I could be certain that the steel would be in good condition.
No improvements from Amazon then by the sounds of it. Will you be hosting a GB at all bud?Any steels I've ordered from amazon.com lately have arrived in a bubble mailer - and that's mostly stuff from the Ghibli wave.
At least with Best Buy new steelbook releases come in a box with some extra of those air mailers to prevent it from moving around.
There's been no change to my pre-order price.Looks like the price went back up on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca after short term price matching drops with Deep Discount's error.
Good news though is that anybody who already had pre-orders in on either Amazon site before today are seeing their orders showing the price drop due to Amazon's pre-order lowest price guarantee.
Hopefully it holds.
