Best place to buy Love Songs

I want the CD version, but I don't know which places have better shipping or are less pricey. Can anyone give me suggestions?

YesAsia's prices are always inflated if they realize there is some sort of extra (like a poster). I rarely order from them.

My favorite is CDJ because of the points system and being able to get my order on release date. FedEx shipping is really fast.

Never ordered from amazon.co.jp or HMV but I imagine you'd have to go through the ordering process on each site to see which has the cheapest shipping.

i also recommend CDJapan! also, a nice perk of ordering there is that you will actually get your CD in a TIMELY manner. i usually get CDs from them on release day! Yesasia on the other hand takes weeks to get a CD to me, and they often arrive broken.

^^I've never received anything broken from YA. Usually they bubble wrap it. That sucks though.

I prefer using HMV Japan because they usually tend to give generous discounts to their online members when comes to certain CD + DVD of singles , albums & let alone concert DVDs

but for items which're being charged the normal regular price without tax (like for CD only editions of singles/albums) , I go with CDJapan

Yesasia is pretty inflated, but when it comes to things over 25 dollars they can be cheaper because they offer free shipping. Just remember to ask for shipping in a box or it arrives broken a lot of times. :/

I've bought more often from CDJapan though, they have good prices.

I prefer yesasia when ordering multiple things because they have free shipping!!
Actually most of the time they are cheaper. Though I would order from them now just in case they add posters and jack up the price!
They are slower than CDJ though.
Oh and I have NEVER gotten a broken case from yesasia ever!!

I like to use "YesAsia", when I order more items, because then I don't have to pay for the shipping. But nowadays I only order merchandise from them.

I love "CDJapan" most and pre-order all my Ayu-stuff (and stuff from other artists I like!) from them. The shipping is a bit expensive sometimes, but you can pick the shipping method you prefer!

go for cdjapan or hmv. they are the safest.

CDJ is just like other's had said, fast shipping and arrive in perfect condition. i normally use EMS and they arive on the release date and sometime BEFORE the release date.

if you are on a budget, can consider hmv japan. because they tend to have a price drop on the release date, and they will charge you the lowest pricing, i had once paid for a preorder album around USD$10 cheaper(with shipping) compare to CDJ and YA

Thanks!

I guess it's my luck or something, but it's happened to me 3 times from Yesasia, never from CDJapan. :/
