I've been ignoring the amazon sales because there isn't anything I really want right now. I figure I'm not saving any money if I end up with an album I don't listen to.

One I was considering was the new Regina Spektor album, and it's apparently on sale for $5. Normally that would be tempting, but it's actually more expensive than buying an $8 album and using the $4 off coupon floating around.

I've got to want it...or have MP3 credit. It's a special album I'll actually play money for, though.

I've got to already want it - there are enough artists giving out sample mp3s these days that I can get music I may or may not listen to again for free. :)

Because it is on sale. Between http://turntable.fm/music_monday_wootcom and Spotify, I have no real music needs.

If I don't like it or want it, it doesn't get bought.

On sale is useless if it just, well, sucks.

I used to buy music from a site that had a free song of the day. I'd listen to the sample and see if I was interested before taking it. I've never bought music because it was on sale, I only buy what I like. I have broad and strange tastes in music. I like plenty of pop stuff, but I also like some very odd stuff and some very old stuff.

I honestly don't buy music anymore. I listen to FM on the 5 minute drive to work and back, but other than that I really don't listen to anything. Well, I guess I do pay for music because I have Sirius/XM in our Santa Fe, but I only drive it a couple of hours in a two week period. It's my wife's vehicle.

Both. I go to the store to buy a specific CD, and usually walk out with 2 or 3 more of the same genre, just because the price was a little lower and the album cover looked cool.
