There are a bunch of 25-cent songs right now from Call Me Maybe and a new song from Fun, to a bunch of older sogs that have a summertime theme. They're probably best found on the sales chart

Looks like an error they're already on. No longer available for sale and the individual albums are 8.99 each. Too bad, as I would've hopped on this in a heartbeat.

Re: Amazon MP3 DOTD Thread (2012)

Getting the Katy Perry, Bonnie Raitt, and maybe some others.

Not sure what they're doing over there, but shades of the Alien deal, they sent me a mail advertising $0.99 deals, not $1.99. And they have a link on each deal page to the complete list, but they show Katy Perry's original Teenage Dream Album, not the newer Complete Confection.

Re: Amazon MP3 DOTD Thread (2012)

Damn! I ordered a couple of them while they were $1.99. Wonder if I can get a price adjustment? However for 99 cents I'm going to order more I was on the fence about.

Also if you search you might find other versions of the albums available for 99 cents that include digital booklets that are not at listed at the link.

I bought three earlier at the "doubled" price and they don't seem to have been adjusted, though I see some customers have mentioned getting a reduction. Not sure if it's worth my time, though.

I feel ripped off now. I bought five this morning. Oh well

Google Play is giving away Don McLean's all-time classic "American Pie" as their Free Song of the Day.

Re: Amazon MP3 DOTD Thread (2012)

I sent a email to customer service for a refund. Only took a minute to possibly save a few dollars.

Just saw this tweet from Amazon:

@amazonmp3: BTW, If you ordered at $1.99, we will be issuing you the difference via email. No action required on your part. Rock on! #rockthegoldbox
