    So I woke up today and went to the US iTunes store after receiving a hefty check from work to complete a few of my albums I've purchased songs from in the past couple weeks. doess anyone else notice is has Disappeared.

    Did apple take it away for the holidays or what? This is not cool. :(

    Yes, I noticed that today after I had bought a lot of tracks of something and realized belatedly that I could collect about five more tracks (that from previews I had figured mostly rated three stars) for just two bucks. But when I went back there, I didn't see the "complete your album" and figured i had just gone back too soon... I hope it's not gone, I liked that feature.

    You're right. That's very interesting.

    At this point, it's most likely just maintenance of some sort. If it's gone after a few days I'll start to worry.

    Maybe it's a sign of a new greater feature to come! :D

    Yesterday or 2 days ago, I checked my 'iTunes Plus' upgrade. It said 4 albums and 3 tracks available for me to upgrade. Now, it's all gone.

    Same goes with 'Complete My Album'.

    Hmm, same for NZ. iTunes Plus now takes you to the "bottom half" of the page that used to appear (ie. the promotions and top-sellers) and the top half with the list of upgradable songs is gone. Complete My Album is nowhere to be found.

    It is only there if you go to the album in iTunes where you purchased a song or two. It's just not listed on the home page anymore for some reason.

    I can't even find it there. This is very disappointing. I found this on the 22nd, but checking the Apple Discussion boards, someone found it earlier in the US store on the 21st. So they have been gone for 3 days now. Perhaps this is for something new or perhaps this is just more pressure from the record companies. I don't know - but it looks like something is happening here.

    That's sad. :( I used that feature to complete Timbaland's latest album. It was a great feature...

    I am also very upset that they now got rid of Just for You on the main page. It was there yesterday and now it's gone as well. That's how I bought 90% of my music.

    I can find it on an Album's page on the UK Store, just not on the front page.

    It's gone on the UK Store as well, but I never found it that useful.

    'Complete My Album' is not completely gone. I checked my Purchased playlist and clicked on one of the most recent song I purchased. On the album page, it showed me 'complete my album for $9.00 [Buy]', 'regular price $9.99', Offer Expires: April 22, 2008'

    Then I clicked 'See Previously Purchased Songs' and then 'Complete my album' tab on top. valia...

    Nice tip! Does anyone know the link to Just For You? That would be really useful too.

    Thanks for the heads up. The iTunes store (U.S.) seems to be back to 'normal'.

    Apple is sneaky....always.

    "Just for You" is still not back on the UK Store, but I never really used it anyway.

    Hi,

    Has anyone noticed that there are now TWO "iTunes Plus" links in the "Quick Links" box?

    One has "New" next to it and one doesn't.

    Apple might of been trying to remove the "New" tag...

    EDIT: The second "iTunes Plus" Link has disappeared and the "New" tag remains.

    EDIT 2: Now it's not there at all...
