    As of September 13, 2017, the PIF offers will be tracked via the Google Doc below created by @angryalan!

    CURRENT OFFERS!: https://goo.gl/5bXyCq

    (please note the international PIFs tab for all offers outside the US!)

    Media Mail Postage Quick Links!:

    - SINGLE SHIPMENTS
    - MULTIORDER SHIPMENTS

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Follow these steps to start your glorious PIFing journey:

    1. CLAIM AN OFFER!:
    - Visit the Google Doc above, and find an offer you'd like to claim
    - Post in the thread that you'll be claiming that offer (tagging the person making the offer is always helpful!)
    - Edit the Doc so that the offer you're claiming is now RED and has a STRIKETHROUGH on the text
    - PM your shipping address to the user who made the offer, and they will send it to you absolutely free! Some split shipping may be requested for international forumites.

    2. MAKE AN OFFER!:
    - Add a record you'd like to offer to the Google Doc
    - Be sure that your offer is in GREEN so that everyone knows your offer is up for grabs!
    - Post in this thread about your offer! Include a picture and where you are willing to ship

    3. SHIP YOUR OFFER!:
    - Once a fellow forumite has claimed your generous and beautiful offer, ship it to the address they give you!

    4. PIF SOME MORE!:
    - There is no limit to how often you can do this, however it is common practice to not spam claims so that everyone has a fair shot
    - Feel free to put up offers before claiming anything so that you're square to claim things without worrying about putting up offers immediately. Lots of people will do this, and it's why we have so many great offers on that Doc!

    Will do, haha.

    I'm offering up an extra copy I have of "At Least For Now", Benjamin Clementine's debut album. I got hooked on this guy's voice when the Gorillaz released "Hallelujah Money" and I needed more. As it turned out, pressings of this were really hard to get a hold of in the US...while I had an order in waiting with Amazon, I found a copy and bought it through Discogs, and then Amazon shipped it before I could cancel the order. So my mixup is your gain! It's unopened and in pristine condition.

    This is a fantastic idea, I definitely have a few duplicates I could pass on as well!

    I find with this and a few other massive hit-generating albums, the material past the singles are pretty damn good. Enjoy!

    I gave some of it a listen, he has a great voice but not really my style. Also it has only been a few hours so...

    Aww man, you guys are brilliant. I wish I could jump on that Clementine album; I got drunk and listened to it on my balcony at 3 AM just the other night and it brought me to tears. Alas, I've only just gotten back into vinyl; the only ones I have in my possession at the moment are the VMP Demon Days and a split seam copy of The Wall. Somebody please, grab that wax and love it! I'll be back to share some love once I get the rest of my LPs out of storage...which are currently 2,000 miles away.

    I love this idea! I just yesterday sent out a duplicate to someone on me. Dang it. But this person deserves it.
