    Mine is also supposed to arrive on the 19th but it shipped on the 8th. 11 days seems like a long time.

    Mine hasn't updated since the 8th, hope it's crossed the boarder at least.

    Just received my box today. 7 records, 4 are badly crunched on the jacket corners. Second time this has happened in 3 months. My Cash Money Bundle which was already delayed, and my Kero Kero Bonito which is sold out in the store.
    And I likely won't receive a response from CS about possible replacement for almost 2 weeks. Getting sick of the day I receive my box being a frustrating experience every single month. Really shouldnt be the case....

    Any of my Canadian friends get records yet? I haven't had a status update on my delivery since the 8th, never had that happen in my year + ordering from VMP, so a little nervous.

    History would tell me that I will prolly get mine next Tuesday (as Monday is a holiday) - but if I was in Toronto, I would expect it by Friday with my current status.

    It's usually 6 days after notice it's delivered, just never had a lul with no update before. I'm hoping it's the weather and not customs lol... It should have delivered today

    Mine’s “ARRIVED AT CUSTOMS” as of yesterday. My records usually arrive 10-14 days after shipping out so it seems right on schedule for me.

    Mine was packed the same way, no seam splits but half the jackets had bad corner crunches (and the other half minor corner crunches).

    In the past they have stuffed more bubble wrap in that open section, I do think mine was saved that it was tightly packed the one way as it didn't move too much when I carried it from the mail locker room to my apartment
