I will never pre-order anything from Play-Asia again!  
While every other fangirl who had pre-ordered their Arashi single of 「迷宮ラブソング」had theirs shipped out by November 2nd, 2011 exclamation1

I was anxiously waiting for Play-Asia to send me a notification that my single would be shipped out. However, that was not meant to be. As more days passed and I went to check the status of my order, it was always listed as "In progress" downarrow

After FIVE days of waiting with no notification from them, I contacted them inquiring why it was taking so long for the shipment to be sent since shipment of the pre-orders for the singles would have been sent out no later than November 2nd like many of the other online retailers such as YesAsia and CD Japan pencil

With that, I was promptly sent a reply e-mail from them:

What irritated me most of all was not that they didn't have the LE single any more, as there are only a certain amount allotted to each online retailer, but that they didn't contact me at all to inform me they didn't have any left in stock! It was only after I patiently waited FIVE days and AFTER I sent them an e-mail that they replied back with this blasphemy !!

They then inform me that the RE is still available and will be willing to give me a measly three dollar discount for my inconvenience NG

Thankfully, by a stroke of good fortune, YesAsia still had the LE for sale!! *cries happily* hearts

I will never stray from YesAsia and CD Japan every again since I've never had any problems or difficulties arise with them arrowup

Play-Asia, you have forever lost the trust of this client and will never need your services ever again prohibited

My, my! I would have been as pissed as you if that had happened to me! If you hadn't contacted them, I wonder when would they have contacted you regarding their 'offer', or would they have contacted you at all!

Why did you use Play Asia this time? I recall you had always used YA for each of your preorders.

*hugs cdj*

I usually do order from YesAsia!

It's just that this time around, I only wanted the LE (since I didn't know what the covers looked like). So at the time, I thought it would have been more economical to order with Play-Asia because the single was cheaper and the shipping was also quite cheap as well.

But then PA screwed me order and I bought the LE and RE from YA since I love the covers this time around :3

That's horrible! Good luck with YA, I read somewhere, somebody's order was cancelled at YA, too, ...but I ordered mine only one day in advance...and I already got a notice of shipment! I always use YA, and I never had any problems...knock on wood....

I was able to get mine off of YA!

It was an awesome stroke of good fortune that they were still available on the website <3

I've never had problems with YA either and will continue to be with them from now on~!

Oh No!! I can imagine how mad you are!!!! They should have sent you an e-mail at least!!! How disrespectful!

I don't know Play-Asia, but I will never get anything from there! I'll stick to CDJapan forever! LOL

I'm glad it was not too late and you managed to get the LE from YesAsia!^^

corlee1289: To Be Free Ohno I see you there...corlee1289 on November 10th, 2011 08:42 pm (UTC)

I've thoroughly learned my lesson and will never order from PA ever again and shall remain faithful to YesAsia from now on :3

DON'T EVER ORDER FROM PLAY-ASIA!! They'll mess up your order or if it's out of stock or something, they won't tell you that it is until AFTER you contact them!!

Yes, I've never had any problems with YesAsia and would advise you to stay with them :3

Right? They didn't even bother to contact me and I had to be the one to contact them first before they informed me that "Oops! We don't have any left in stock... But hey! We'll give you a three dollar discount for the RE!"

I was weeping tears of joy when I saw YesAsia still have them available when I went to check their website <3
