    David,

    I didn't buy records this way but was caught by a negative billing option once about 20 years ago when I bought one book from a publisher that specialized in titles for graphic artists. I began getting piles of unordered books and bills. I am not a graphic artist and had no use for the books nor did I want to pay for them. It took far too long to stop. Having been burned, today I am wary of using my credit card for any subscription. Should I want to get rid of it the only efficient way would be to cancel my credit card which, in turn, would affect my credit. So I pay by check when possible.

    Yes. It was just pennies to start. Then came the Big Invoice.

    Yes it was, David ! Except for Vietnam and the KENNEDYs being assassinated, it seemed like better times. Everything today Is, Rush, Rush, Rush. (especially our ages)

    David... I could never figure out how they did it until my son-in-law became an executive for Columbia House... they were actually in the shipping and handling business. If you can remember, you paid a shipping and handling cost for every CD, Tape... unfortunately you and I go back to vinyl... that they sent you regardless of how many were bundled in a package. But oh the joy finding 11 choices out of the hundreds to pick from.

    Then of course their was the book clubs... anyone interested in a 1956 Oxford dictionary?

    David Reich

    @Ira -- Shipping & handling... a business in itself. But you are right about the joy of finding 11 choices from hundreds of options. A decades-in-advance preview of what online shopping is like today.
