I remember buying cds from them for many years. I used to sign up for the super good deals, then buy the commitment amount, and quit until they sent another great deal, and then join again.

When I was a kid, I belonged to the Columbia Record Club.  No CDs then, just vinyl.

When I was a kid... I didn't have a turntable, but I did buy cassettes from them all the time.
