I want to know if any of you folk order stuff from Spin cds?The reason im asking is because i put 4 orders in 28th January,and still not received anything,also thats well over a month that the money came out the bank to pay for them!!Has anyone else had to wait this long for orders to arrive?Or is this a one off?I will say that they were waiting for stuff as yet to arrive at spin cds.But c'mon near on 6 weeks,and still ive not received a single cd.Spin cds do not charge postage if you're buying in the UK,but i would rather pay for postage rather than wait this long!!!Also i have sent many e-mails to them,which went unanswered,so i had to phone the shop,each time i was told they were waiting for stuff and they usually send everything at once,but twice the chap said he would send what they had.......but alas....nothings appeared.It looks like it'll be another phone call.I feel really disappointed and frustrated,and will think twice before i order anything from them again.
Dont mean to moan,i just want to know if anyone else has had this problem with Spin?
Looked at their site.
Unless you pe-ordered stuff, seems they may be ripping you off.
Under the Consumer's Rights Act, you are entitled to get your money back.
Not so good if you really want your CDs.
If you spent £100 + and used a credit card, you are protected by that as they will have to refund you - then they chase the supplier.
Here's a forum discussing them - http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/spin-cds.540235/
Hope that's helpful.

Re: Spin cds
Having the same problem with them myself at the moment. I'm waiting on a pre-order CD paid for in December and now apparently in stock in many other places, but nothing from Spin. After endless emails I finally had a response telling me it was due in a week. 4 weeks later and still no CD and back to no responses to emails.
I also ordered another item in January with still no word on that either. Sadly will be shopping elsewhere from now on. I can't recall why I didn't just go to Nick at the always reliable Heyday.....

Re: Spin cds
I think yours is a common experience. There's nothing underhand about Spin, they are an independent record shop with a website that's all. They do offer a lot of stuff, often bundles of LPs or Cds from Jpana or elsewhere by an artist as well, but I gave up on them years ago because nothing ever came through on time if at all and I ended up cancelling the orders. As far as I recall, they didn't charge my account until the goods would be sent so cancelling the order didn't require a refund, maybe that's changed. Probably if you lived in Newcastle and could actually go to the shop on a regular basis they would eventually have the items you ordered and you'd feel comfortable with that but trying to do that at distance by email or ringing up all the time is annoying and not reassuring I know. Hope you resolve the issue sucessfully.
Same as you Stuart: orders from October still not received but money taken!
And no answer to my mails.
The Chris Wood box is 'ships within 24 hours' but I still have no news.
I am afraid we will receive nothing.

Re: Spin cds
interesting thread I wont be buying from them as surely they shouldnt be advertising stuff for sale which they havent got and have no control over even getting it on time.And also taking payment before they get the products??
Very shabby way to look after future customers.
Hope you guys get yer cash back
this info is from Citizens Advice
If you paid by debit card
Contact your bank and say you want to use the ‘chargeback scheme’. If the bank agrees, they can ask the seller’s bank to reverse the transaction and refund the money back into your account.
Many bank staff don’t know about the scheme, so you might need to speak to a supervisor or manager. They might ask you to put your request in writing. You should do this within 120 days of when you paid.
If you paid by credit card
If the item cost less than £100, you should contact your credit card company and say you want to use the ‘chargeback scheme’. They could also ask you to put your request in writing. There’s no time limit for when you need to do this.
If the item cost more than £100 but less than £30,000, contact your credit card company and say that you want to make a ‘section 75’ claim to get your money back.
Logically though, Spin must be delivering on a majority of orders or they wouldn't still be in business. I know when that Mojo mag sponsored LP sized psych box set 'Angel dust and sherbert' or whatever it was called, many years ago, was sent out all the Cds came loose in the box and arrived damaged with many customers. Spin replaced them all very quickly with new ones securely packaged. It sounds like Spin are over-committing to product range maybe when they need to consolidate confidence in their customer base through better lines of logistics and communication when contacted. They ofen offer LP bundles. My brother bought one set by Broadcast of I think five albums, but apparently, these were all sourced from individual sources so took ages to get in one place and then be sent out as a set. I hope everyone gets what they've ordered anyway.
Many thanks for the comments and advice,its not looking good,been trying for 2 days to talk with someone,but its been engaged everytime ive tried to phone!!Not a good sign.If they are going out the box,they are still sending out update e-mails with new releases etc,if that is the case they're bang out of order.......i'm bloody angry,but i have acted on advice given on here from Phil.My 4 orders came to the value of around £75,on the wages i earn thats a fair bit of cash....i am so hoping for everyone that my suspicions are unfounded and way off the mark....but it aint looking Good....GULP!!!!!
