Vinyl record subscription service with plans to meet any budget!

FAQ

  • How does this work?
    You sign up as a site member, select a plan, fill out the form (so we get to know your musical taste), and our experienced staff will start putting together your first shipment! It's as easy as that!
  • What plan is right for me?
    If you're interested in expanding your collection on a budget, and you prefer artists pre-1985, then The Basic Plan is right for you. If you're interested in a mixture of new artists and more obscure titles, we recommend The New Plan. If you want the best of both worlds, and would like a mixture of classic albums from pre-1985, as well as the flexibility to get obscure titles and more contemporary artists, we recommend The Hybrid Plan.
  • Why is "The Basic Plan ideal for music before 1985?
    Because The Basic Plan only includes used pressings, it's more difficult to fulfill orders for customers who primarily prefer contemporary artists. There are fewer used pressings in circulation for contemporary artists. If you prefer more current artists such as Taylor Swift or Ed Sheeran, or obscure artists with minimal used pressings in circulation, we recommend The New Plan. If your musical taste includes classic and contemporary artists, we recommend The Hybrid Plan.
  • Do I have to pay for shipping?
    No, we offer free shipping on all of our plans! We ship via USPS media mail, so shipping times vary based on your location.
  • I like digging through crates, why subscribe to Gruuve?
    As vinyl collectors ourselves, we know how much fun it is to dig through crates and stumble upon your next album! But we also know the value in getting recommendations and discovering albums you might not have picked out for yourself. Just like you might get a recommendation from the clerk behind the counter in your local store, we take pride in tailoring our monthly picks to both fit your specific requests and cater to your more adventurous side! Also, depending on your location, you may have a difficult time getting records at this price point (even used). We are fortunate to run our business in a small town with lower overhead costs - so we pass those savings to you.
  • How do you know what I'll like?
    When you sign up, you'll fill out a form that lets us get to know your musical taste inside and out. You'll pick out your favorite genres and have space to get as specific as you want! Let us know your favorite artists, decades, movements, anything. You can post a link to your Spotify or Tidal account so we can see what you're listening to in real time! We even have a section where you can tell us what bands you hate, so we make sure to never send you a band that would make you change the station!
  • Can I cancel if I don't like my shipments?
    You may cancel any of our plans at any time, but the quarterly and yearly plans continue through the first term of the plan even if you decide to cancel. If you cancel a quarterly or yearly plan, you will still receive the records you paid for, and we will discontinue once the term is up. Otherwise, plans auto-renew until canceled.
  • What if I just don't like the records I receive?
    While all sales are final, and we do encourage subscribers to give all the records a try, we do want to make sure we don't completely miss the mark every month. If you receive a shipment that you really don't like, please feel free to reach out to us and let us know what you didn't like, and we will try to do better next time! You can email us at: support@gruuverecords.com
  • What if I receive records I already own?
    If you receive records you already own, we recommend gifting them to a friend or loved one. We promise not to send you duplicates of records we've already sent, but we simply cannot ensure that we never send a record that you already own. Share the love and music!
  • Um, why'd you ask for my shirt size?
    Every once in a while, we feel generous and like to send our subscribers extra goodies, and we want to make sure they're a good fit. ;)
