    I wouldn't go that far. At least HITS publishes these estimates as there is no other website that does. No matter how these estimates are arrived at, the sales numbers before the 100% final ones gives us the minimum an album has sold. So we know Carrie's GH album sold at least 63k. I'll guess 105k.

    How many updates does HDD do? I feel like they used to do them more frequently, but is it just one update on Monday, one on Tuesday, and then the final on Tuesday?

    Hope you guys are right. 100k would be fabulous! The stores were off the chain packed over the weekend so I hope it helped bump up the original estimate.

    Our local mall has both a Barnes & Noble & a Best Buy & neither store stocked even 1 copy of this album. Not one! Zero, zip, zilch...less than 1.

    I just ordered another one this morning! iTunes is making me mad with how they organize the album tracks for songs you have previously purchased, so I ordered the physical CD on Amazon and you get a free digital version. Plus, it was just $10.99 and my spending limit for our white elephant/dirty Santa gift at work is $10, so I am just going to give the physical CD for my gift. I wanted the digital version so I could listen to all the songs in order using my Amazon music app on my phone and for some weird reason, the mp3 version on Amazon is $13.99 while the CD with a free digital download is $10.99. Makes absolutely no sense, lol. Plus, I asked my SIL for the physical CD for Christmas, so I need to give this one away so I don't buy it for myself.

    Hitting 100k with a greatest hits album in this era would be quite the accomplishment.

    Yea, 100K today is like 500k in 1980. In Carrie's case, with 18 number ones, in 1980, this album would have killed. Maybe 1 million.

    One can argue that people have purchased her previous albums already, though that didn't stop Céline Dion's from selling well back in the days.

    I've said this time and time again that this assumption is simply not true.

    Brandy's album dropped in sales from a previous update when it reached 100%. It is likely that the compilation has sold at least 63k copies, but HDD is so unpredictable there's no guarantee even that.

    And then there also were the cases when sales adjusted after it reached 100%.

    Indeed, it'd be almost doubling what Brad Paisley opened with with a full-length studio album. Or 10 times that of a LeAnn Rimes or Nelly Furtado album.

    The number of instances where a sales figure of an album at 50% is higher than the HITS number at 100% is rare. I would say this occurs less than 0.01% of the time. I don't understand your constant nitpicking.

    I bought all the Eagles albums but when the GH album came out, over 30 million have bought that album to this day. So, 1 million for 18 Carrie number ones during the 80s non digital days is a shoein. Well, 500K sounds more likely, but hey, that's a bunch.
