Notes on holiday shopping

Posted on November 30th, 2009 by administrator

The December holidays are upon us and here at we are not above ignoring the often religious aspects of these holidays in favour of crass commercialism. There is no better way to let your loved ones know that you indeed love them than with material possessions; and what better material possession can one give another than the gift of independent music? That’s a rhetorical question – there is no better gift than that of independent music. As such, here are a few things you should bear in mind when making purchases from…

Shop early (shop often)

All shipping charges are included in the price of every item being sold on the site. However, in order to keep costs reasonable, the actual shipping is done via the United States Postal Service. This means that it generally takes three to five business days for a package to arrive at its destination. During the holiday season, this time may increase as mail volume increases. Please plan accordingly and order early if you have a holiday deadline to meet. Items can not be shipped overnight and no guarantees for arrival times can be made.

Coupon savings

Throughout the holiday season in 2009, a promotion is running at where any purchases made through the site are subject to a ten percent discount when the coupon code “iojxmas2009” is used. There is a limit of one code per customer. This offer will expire at the end of December and can not be combined with other offers.


Gift-wrapping is available free of charge for any CD purchased during this time. Be sure to include a note with your order indicating to whom and from whom the package is being given so that said information can filled out on the wrapping card. Without a note, all packages will simply be wrapped without a card, leaving everyone surprised and possibly confused. Gift wrap patterns and colours are random but generic enough to be appropriate for any holiday.

Overall, have a happy, safe and hassle-free holiday season. If you have any questions or concerns regarding purchases from this website, do not hesitate to contact us.
