eBay Reveals New Deals for First-Ever Vinyl Obsession Week

Press Release

eBay is introducing Vinyl Obsession Week, offering exclusive and rare record bundles and deals on in-demand vinyls from a wide selection of artists and genres.

Vinyl fever is making a rapid comeback, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Beginning today, eBay is kicking off the first-ever ‘Vinyl Obsession Week’ at www.eBay.com/vinylweek. During this week, we are offering consumers exclusive bundles and deals on in-demand vinyls from a wide variety of genres and industry-leading artists such as Metallica, Lana Del Rey, Ed Sheeran, and more. In addition we are launching in collaboration with Record Store Day the Authorized Reseller hub on eBay. 

eBay is the go-to destination for music-goers and vinyl enthusiasts searching for new, rare, and unique vinyls at a great value, and offers shoppers access to the widest selection of collectible vinyl records through trusted independent sellers and record stores around the country.

Exclusively this week, eBay has something to offer to every music-lover, including a limited-time vinyl coupon offering shoppers 10% off purchases valued at $50 or more, top-selling bundles provided by specialty record label Rhino Records, and a free, three-month TIDAL premium offer subscription to those who purchase select vinyl records from eBay seller get_importCDs.

Additionally, select signed vinyl and artist memorabilia with all proceeds benefiting Musicians On Call and the GRAMMY Museum Foundation. Inventory includes 3 signed copies of ‘PLAY’ - a two-part mini-documentary directed by Dave Grohl with help from his Sound City/Sonic Highways collaborator Mark Monroe, celebrating the rewards and challenges of dedicating one’s life to playing and mastering a musical instrument. The advanced pre-order from Dave Grohl includes a 23-minute, one-man-band instrumental recording on which Grohl plays all seven instruments on the track, all live. 

“Vinyl is no longer just a trend of the past and its resurgence among today’s music lovers is undeniable,” said Michael Mosser, General Manager of Lifestyle, Media & Toys. “We are excited to collaborate with industry leaders, independent record stores, and leading music industry charities to bring exclusive vinyl bundles and special offerings as part of this inaugural limited time event.”

Reigning supreme in the vinyl comeback, eBay enables users to sell and buy new and timeless records across every genre, price, and time zone. In fact, between 2007 and 2017, shoppers were on the hunt for the classics – vinyl albums including Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Pink Floyd’s “The Wall,” Led Zeppelin’s “IV,” and The Beatles “Abbey Road” consistently appeared in the top 10 best selling records on eBay for ten consecutive years.*

Vinyl is going strong among millennial music-goers as well, with Twenty One Pilots’ “Vessel” ranking as the #1 selling vinyl title in Washington in 2017. Additionally, Chance the Rapper is continuing to take his hometown of Chicago by storm, with his “Coloring Book” vinyl ranking as one of Illinois’ top-selling titles on eBay last year.*
