How would you like to get CDs for just $7.99… “as easy as 1-2-3!”
Sounds tempting, right? It’s understandable that folks noting BuyMusic.com’s advertising about “79 cent tracks, $7.99 albums” would be excited.
The reality, however, is quite disappointing, even infuriating.
Welcome to the real (awful) BuyMusic.
Note that it’s difficult, perhaps even impossible, to actually find any song for 79 cents. Or maybe you wanted “Minnie Mouse sings Nothing But a Hound Dog?” (okay, I made that up, but I was actually UNABLE to find any clip for 79 cents!)
Have fun with an incredibly inefficient, arduous set of obstacles to download and activate an album.
Note that the service supports only ONE CD burning plugin.
And if that doesn’t work on your system and you’ve already paid for an album? Tough cookies, says BuyMusic customer service, as Jennifer found out the hard (and expensive) way. That’s YOUR problem, not ours, BuyMusic insists… so forget about a refund.
Looking for a much more enjoyable and customer-centric online service? Try Listen.com’s Rhapsody. I’ve also appreciated good customer service so far with PressPlay, though I haven’t yet tried burning CDs with either service.
In the meantime, please DO copy the “Get Screwed” graphic above (which is a take off on their sophomoric “Get Loaded” logo) and post it on your site or your blog. Feel free to link either to Jennifer’s page directly or to this page if you prefer.
