Whenever I have purchased anything from Amazon Germany or Italy it has been fulfilled by Amazon in the UK.

[…] local competitor in a specific regions is great for music fans and much like recently in Germany, where Amazon matched Saturn’s 3-for-2 deal on music, Amazon in France will quite often react to special deals in the that part of the world, and […]

Every Cloud!
“I am sorry that the item is damaged.

In this case you do not need to return the item. Please keep it or dispose of it.

I have sent a free replacement. You will receive a confirmation by e-mail.”

Tony Orwell

Disaster! in through the out door heavy box set arrived damaged, they will only pay £8 postage for me to return it, it will cost more than that to send it to somewhere in the uk, any suggestions people? What really pisses me off is the phycial graffiti box came in a custom made mailer with foam spacers around the edge, in through the out door was look in an over sized box with no protection GGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR


Sorry make that EUR 40 of course.

Tony Orwell

OK appart from the fact that I left it right til the last minute and did not really consider the best way to group my orders (should have paid more attention to the values) do anyone know how amazon.de will react if i return one of the items for a refund? If i bought 3 x £30 items or equivalent and returned one would there be any refund? if i bought a batch of 3 items that were £50 £30 and £10 and returned the £50 record how much would they refund?



In my experience they wouldn’t refund you if you send one item of three with the same price back, because then you still buy two cds for the same amount that you had been charged to during the 3for2-offer. Your second example will be handled the same way, so for the example you wrote you would get a GBP 40 refund ((50+30)-(30+10).

Chris Squires

Well, glad that’s over. Fortunately The Boss was out when the first two boxes arrived, so the albums / SDE’s have been absorbed into the collection and the boxes are safely in the boot of my car for recycling. Just one more parcel to sneak in and I am safe.

Only one disaster…and it brings up a good point about returning to a foreign country if things do not go right.

The Hippopotamus “2LP Picture disc” arrived as an unsealed Black vinyl copy in a terrible state with dirty / dusty vinyl and what looks like a glue rip to the front cover. Other than sending Rolf Harris’s Greatest Hits they couldn’t have got it more wrong.

Has anyone any experience of returns to a foreign Amazon? Admittedly this is the first and only error I have had from AmIt, AmFr, AmEs or AmDe in dozens of orders.

Do you have to post it back to Germany as in all likelihood it arrived from Dunfermline, Scotland anyway?

Chris Squires

Sorted, the set up seems the same with an immediate return phone call, conducted entirely in perfect English (from the lady at the end of the ‘phone anyway). They will send a new Hippopotamus Pic Disc and I get to keep the old Black Vinyl one which I am sure will clean up nicely for playing and the beautiful Picture Disc can go on my wall. Perfect result.


Christian, that’s interesting – the first batch of Abbey Road half-speed masters included Abba’s Arrival at 2x45rpm, which was not reissued as a single 33rpm. The Eno 2x45rpm do sound great, though!

Jonathan Chapman

Thank you so much for the email alert! There are two box sets I’ve been after for a while:

1. Primal Scream – Screamadelica (mainly because it includes the Dixie Narco EP!)
2. Jean-Michel Jarre – Oxygene Trilogy

But I’m a big Metallica fan too…so brilliant to pick up the new 3CD version of “Hardwired”…

…and all those three were £44!! Fantastic value. Thanks again :-)


Thanks Paul. Tried hard to resist but the combo of the deluxe Radiohead Moon Shaped Pool, Sgt Pepper’s super deluxe with Airborne vinyl collection all staring at me from the final Amazon order screen was too powerful.

I did check with a mate who assured me I was simply delaying the inevitable by hovering over the final purchase button. Whether he can resist the huge Metallica boxset frenzy made possible from this offer which I thoughtfully pointed out to him, I shall find out tomorrow.

Tom M

I hope it’s not too late to mention this but films and movies are included also.


As a test I tried to order the 2 Bowie boxes plus the Tom Petty.
Below is the message copied & pasted direct from Amazon de site:

The Studio Album Vinyl Collection 1976-1991 (Ltd.) [Vinyl LP]
This title is part of the following promotion: Musik & Film: 3 kaufen, 2 zahlen . Period of Action: 27.09. – 03.10.2017

But when I checkout…. I dont get the 3 for 2 deal.
Thats it, I’m out.



I guess that would be because the new Bowie box currently ain’t being sold from Amazon.de anymore, possibly because of the bad comments they’re getting for it.

Steve Gilmour

Thanks Paul youve cost me 1400 dollars in the last week still…netted George Harrison vinyl box and Bon Jovi vinyl box for 170 pounds each. Then 3 g or 2 on Germany netted the Bright Eyes vinyl box and Kinks mono box and took Mccartney Flowers super deluxe for free all less tax then just went 12 cd boxes on 3 for 2 less tax..all the Scorpions deluxes Keith Jarrett anfels box Lloyd cole new york box Kraftwerk 3d cd box Human League 3cdplusdvd box and David Gilmour pompeio super deluxe. All ip ivreckon only 40 PERCENT COST OF normal UK rrp. Thanks Paul..will be smiling all the way to poverty :)

[…] If you buy this, make sure you take advantage of Amazon Germany’s 3-for-2 deal […]

steve edwards

Despite advertising it as being included in the 3 for 2 purchase, Amazon de have confirmed they will not honour a deal that includes Kraftwerk 3D vinyl.

Whats the legal position on this?


Own my own retail companies.
If I advertised a 3 for 2 offer, then withdrew a product a customer ordered, I’d be falling over myself to ensure they remained happy by offering an alternative.
Its customer relations.

So they can whistle on the Bowie box sets I ordered, and be confident I wont be tempted into anymore of their deals that dont exist when you order them as they advertised.


great deal but am struggling to find a couple of other items around 40 euros similar to human league price deal. any ideas? thans


Cerrone box sets. Yum.


I succumbed to this… and bought the following with a saving of 23€.

Peter Thomas – Sounds
Peter Herbolzheimer – Hip Walk: The Complete Polydor Recordings
Nick Cave – Lovely Creatures (Deluxe Edition)

Nick Cave wasn’t in my Want List and I’ve not listened to much of his stuff since the turn of the millennium but I couldn’t find nothing that I wanted that I didn’t have already. It might eventually end up on eBay…

Links for anyone remotely interested:



Just a word of advice for USA buyers. Check to see what the third party sellers on Amazon.com are selling the items for. I bought 3 boxes (U2, Joshua Box, The Verve Urban Box and Underworld Beaucoup box). The total after discount, shipping, taking out VAT and conversion to USD was $188. If I go to the third party sellers on Amazon.com I will pay $196 for the same 3 box sets. Since all 3 of the boxsets are quite new, they will lower in price going forward and I would probably be able to get them for less than $188 in total.

I also bought other smaller boxsets and they came out about $30 cheaper than if I order them from third party sellers on Amazon.com (Daf Box Set, Prince Purple SDE and Pet Shop Boys Nightlife further Listening). So it is possible to save but you have to pay attention and the research to see where you come out ahead.

I also bought the 3 Deluxe China Crisis albums and paid $33. If I were to buy them from third party sellers on Amazon.com right now it’s expensive because some of them are still listed as imports but in a few weeks the 2cd versions will be about $10 and The 3cd is already $14 now so that would total $46 including shipping. So also in this case I’m getting out ahead.

It seems the more expensive (and bigger) the box sets, the less advantageous this deal is if you are in the USA. Just a heads up!

Auntie Sabrina

I was just about to buy the Eno double vinyls when I saw they’ll be issued again on October 27 for 19.99 € each, probably as single 33rpm albums then!? Can’t find any further info yet ..

For example: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B075N2C1P5

steve edwards

Tried a third time, same story, got invoiced for all three.

Jörgen Eriksson

I grabbed the Metallica box sets “Kill’em all” and “Ride the lightning” and Soundgarden “Badmotorfinger box. There’s a whole lotta rock coming up! :)

steve edwards

Used your link to order.
Bought Bowie, New Career, Who Can I Be and Kraftwerk 3D, all on vinyl, 2nd October.
Site didn’t take off cheapest album (Kraftwerk) so cancelled the lot.
Tried again, still no luck.


I see you’re having problems Steve Edwards. I just ran your selections through to the invoice page and it worked just fine for me. I notice the Kraftwerk English vinyl is not in the promotion though. Just the German version. I expect you are checking that each item you select IS in the promotion? Not everything is, although even niche products that I have looked at are.


does this also include upcoming sets? e.g. the master of puppets box

Peter P

Three Brian Eno 2x45RPM reissues for a little over A$90 – Bargain!

Auntie Sabrina

Lindsay Liddell, the offer is only valid when you order directly from Amazon.de


Bought stuff I’ve missed earlier.

Velvet Underground: Loaded 45th box
Springsteen: Ties That Bind blu-ray box
Fleetwood Mac: Tango in the Night box
appr. 110£ (130€)



Anyone looking for something to add to their 3 for 2 purchase might want to check out Mikael Tariverdiev’s ‘Film Music’. I own the CD version but I’ve seen the vinyl set and it’s beautiful, as is the soundtrack music dating from the sixties and seventies



Picked up three Bear Family boxes. The Bristol Sessions, Johnson City Sessions, Knoxville Sessions. I was going to buy the Bristol box anyway, but the promotion effectively reduced the other two to £47 each. And at that price, it would have been an offence NOT to buy. I see lots of people might have trouble with their spouse over this offer. Take a tip from me and just absorb the records into your collections quietly. My other half will just think Im playing the same old rubbish. She won’t know it’s new rubbish!

John Lim

Snagged David Bowie’s Who Can I Be Now? and A New Career In A New Town and King Crimson’s On (And Off The Road) box sets. Thank you Paul and cheers.


Its a shame Bowie’s five year box isn’t showing up for sale from amazon.de.
Does anyone know if its actually been deleted or is just out of stock?!


It seems that Amazon ran out of stock fairly quickly.

Lindsay Liddell

Thanks Auntie, tried that, still the same.It”s in the 3 fur 2 offer but supplied by somebody other than Amazon……I’ll keep trying…..anybody else have any other ideas?

Tom M

Sorry, because it says “Sold by Music-Shop and Fulfilled by Amazon” I don’t believe it qualifies.

Lindsay Liddell



Just bought the Human League Anthology super deluxe edition as part of the 3 for 2 offer. It’s 40 euros on its own before taking into account the discount. Think that’s the lowest it’s ever been so far…


My choice has been the 2nd and 3rd Bowie sets plus the Lou Reed RCA & Arista box. 41 cds 247€ delivered. Fela Kuti’s complete 30cd+dvd was also a contender, but finally went for Lou.


Picked up Beaucoup Fish from Underworld, U2 Joshua Box and Verve Urban Box in the first order. Then in the next order the three China Crisis reissues and then in the third order the new DAF Box, Prince Purple SDE and the remaining Pet Shop Boys Further Listening I hadnt bought yet. Good promo.
I also wanted to get the Flowers In The Dirt box from Paul McCartney together with the 2 Bowie boxes but I simply cannot pull the lever on that Macca box. It’s so ridiculously expensive that even with this promo I feel massively ripped off. I also don’t really need the Bowie boxes as I have all the individual Ryko discs with all bonus tracks. No need to spend all that money on stuff I already have, only the sound is slightly better. So decided against that. The only reason I want that Macca box is because I bought Paul’s interview booklet. Apparently the completist in me is starting to move into OCD territory. I would never listen to that box as Im not a Macca fan at all.
The dollar vs Euro exchange rate is also quite bad at the moment. Some of these boxes are so much more expensive on Amazon Germany that even with the promo I don’t save all that much after shipping and conversion to Dollars. Yes VAT is taken out but the numbers are still so so. Im still coming out ahead but not as much as I had expected.

185 dollars delivered to the USA for Hysteria Super Deluxe, the Complete Dave Brubeck, and the Kris Kristofferson boxes. It doesn’t get more across the board than that!! On Amazon US this would have cost me over 300 dollars easy!


Can anyone who’s had stuff ship or start to be charged say how Amazon.de deals with out of stock items? Do they average the total price out over the three items as they ship or do they charge at full price for two meaning it would only be when the order is fully complete do you actually achieve the discount by getting that third one free?


Picked up the Sundazed Velvet Underground Verve-MGM boxset alongside the new Bowie CD boxset and Sgt Pepper super deluxe!


Anyone have any steers for fans of electronic music? CD only – Not fussed about vinyl (even though I still have a working turntable – I’m not an animal!). Ta.


Try the Underworld boxes. They are excellent. Dubnobassformyheadman, Secon Toughest In The Infants and Beaucoup Fish. All 3 boxes are cd only, no vinyl no dvd nonsense. High quality electronic music in my book.


I picked up two The Necks boxset, The Necks Box, plus two Keith Jarrett boxsets – At The Blue Note – The Complete Recordings and A Multitude Of Angels, scoring a free copy of A Multitude Of Angels. Very pleased. Many thanks Paul. If anyone is looking beyond the mainstream may I recommend the This Heat box, Out of Cold Storage, and Sony’s monumental Complete Philip Glass, both part of the 3 for 2 offer…

Craig e

Just got 3 of the Brian Eno half speed master vinyl reissues for £50. Thanks!!


So did I, Craig. Thanks again, Paul.


Human League 3CD+DVD &
Trent Reznor Vietnam War OST vinyl &
Bob Mould Workbook vinyl are my 3-for-2 (saving me £30 on top of the HL being substantially cheaper than I’d seen in UK so far).

Looking at some Talking Heads, Joy Division & Talk Talk vinyl for 2nd and maybe 3rd bundles.

Not in the offer, but I also noticed that Propaganda’s “A Secret Wish” has been reissued on 2LP by Music on Vinyl. Cheaper on Amazon UK that Amazon DE though.

Paul Spurgeon

Pink Floyd Division Bell 2LP
LED Zeppelin Coda Deluxe 3LP
LED Zeppelin Physical Graffiti Deluxe 3LP

£75 delivered.

Cheers Paul!

regan judson

A couple of the excellent Complete Motown Singles sets are part of the deal too!

Chris Squires

The coloured vinyl ABBA solo albums are in the deal, well 5 of the recent 6. For some reason Agnetha’s “Wrap your arms around me” is not. Added PF Meddle to get to 6.

But basically I picked up 5 of the 6 ABBA solo albums for £13.50 each delivered….These are £20 to £28 on AmUK.


Which are the three most important Pink Floyd
standalone-reissues from the big box??

Thanks in advance for your opinions ……;-)

Martyn Alner

I’ve just used this to get the first 2 and the last one of the PF Boxes, as been waiting to complete the set for a while. I started with ’69, then got ’70 and ’71.
