Black Friday 2015 Weekend Sale!

Well, folks, the Salvation Army person is ringing their bell at me, Raleigh's streets are closed down for a parade, and I just had to start fishing my winter clothes out from the depths of my dresser drawers, so that means it's time for Sorry State's annual Black Friday weekend sale! As in the past, we have a lot going on, and this page is our hub of communication to let you know exactly what's going on and how to maximize your vinyl buying potential this holiday season.

First of all, nearly everything we have in stock (both in the store and online, new and used) is 10% off. The only items excluded are Black Friday exclusive releases and a handful of recent new arrivals. The 10% off sale will run from Thanksgiving day (Nov 26) until the end of the day on Cyber Monday (Nov 30). Click here to browse the catalog alphabetically and check out all of the stuff that's on sale!

Second, we'll be giving away free records with every purchase! If you're in the store we'll have a selection of free records for you to choose from. If you're ordering online, a pop-up window will appear at checkout offering you a selection of records that you can add to your order at no extra cost. Please, limit yourself to one free record per order. If you try to add all of the free records to your cart we'll just send you whichever record we feel like sending you. They are all pretty awesome though.

Third (and this is the big one!), if you spend over $100 on non-Black Friday releases (either in the store or online) we'll give you a coupon for $20 off your next order. If you want to dig deep into our catalog and spend $200, we'll give you $50 off your next purchase! Online customers should note that the process for generating these coupons won't be automated, so please allow a couple of days for us to go through our receipts and send everyone their coupons. Also, please read the fine print on this one because certain conditions apply.

Fourth, we'll have plenty of Black Friday exclusive releases, and Nov 27 is a big release date for non-Record Store Day-sanctioned new releases as well. Remember, Black Friday releases do not count toward your total purchase for the gift certificate offer. These will be available in the store when we open at noon on Friday, and in accordance with Record Store Day rules we will post them for sale online Saturday morning. Here's a list of what we'll have available. Of course, quantities on most releases are very limited:

Fine print for coupon offer: Black Friday exclusive items and shipping charges do not count toward your purchase total for the $20/$50 coupon offer. The $100 and $200 thresholds are based on the final sale price (i.e. if you were to buy $105 worth of stuff and use a 10% off coupon that reduced your total to $94.50 you would not get the coupon), not including shipping charges. Immediate payment is required to be eligible for the offer (i.e. no money order / well concealed cash orders). Your $20 or $50 off coupons are not valid until after the Black Friday sale ends. Coupons are transferable, so if you're feeling generous give yours to a friend!
