The Right Stuf is having a sale on FUNimation items. This sale includes pre-orders.
This sale ends on September 4.
They have some great titles, check it out.
I'll be posting one of these courtesy alerts each time the Right Stuf starts a new sale. When the sale is over the alert shall be taken down to avoid cluttering up the blog.
For my own shopping I keep a list of items I want in the "Saved Items" part of my shopping cart until there is a sale.
Why do I do it this way rather than just ordering what my budget allows right away? Sales, different sales going on one after the other.
What I do when a particular sale is happening, for example books from Seven Seas Entertainment, is to then order the items I have in the list on sale at that time. This works well and my budget allows me to buy more that I could have afforded otherwise.
The sales usually include pre-orders for items that have yet to be released.
Where I shop is important to me. I'm one of those people who avoid big chains where possible and support smaller businesses which are more likely to treat their customers and staff well. For years my favorite online site has been The Right Stuf.
One of the great things about The Right Stuf is that they have an excellent advanced search feature for locating items. For example you can do a search for titles from a particular company that have yet to be released.
For US customers if you order more than $49.00 you qualify for free shipping. I always do it this way so I have even more money to spend on my orders. Not hard for me to do as I buy plenty of anime and manga. If you need something to fill out an order to get free shipping check out their Weekly Specials which often has some great titles. You can even save more if you get a Got Anime? membership, cheap enough to pay for itself on only one order.
So check The Right Stuf out. Create a "Saved Items" list for your future purchases and be ready for the next sale.
