    It's 1.5 Euros not Sterling.
    Google (worldwide) 'nokia club cd wow' and you'll get what you need. I missed the first link which is the join up and went straight into the second link which e-mails you the voucher.

    And it can only be used on the German .net site, and if you want also in combination with a 1 Euro discount link. Better then to get hold of one of the 3 Euros vouchers available via www.dvdbargain.net. In most cases though it's cheaper to get 2 pounds off at .com than 4 Euros off at .net because the German prices are generally higher.

    But I ordered The Mexican reg3 from .net yesterday and with 4 Euros off this was only 2.99 Euros (approx. 2 pounds). Got confirmation today that the item has been despatched.... :thumbsup:

    They will be making even less, now that people who were just using the 75p discount are using the £2 discount vouchers.

    Thing is, if people keep abusing the system, CD-WOW will just stop doing discount links and vouchers altogether.

    Unfortunately, I feel as long as the opportunity is there people will always abuse to save money. Shame.

    I feel no sense of 'abuse' using cdwow voucher and links combined. It's their problem in making said links/vouchers so easy to find/use.

    I think it'd be pretty easy to walk out into the street and slit someone's throat if they had no idea I was going to do it. Does that make it right?

    Alright, so maybe that's a stupidly extreme example, but there is a point to it. CD-WOW's T&C's state that you cannot use discount links and vouchers combined on one order. Just because it happens to be easy to defy that rule, and that because CD-WOW have so many orders each day that they rarely notice, it doesn't make your doing it any more right.

    All abusing the voucher system is doing is getting CD-WOW to raise prices (loads of DVDs have gone up by exactly £2 recently), and that's not good for the people who don't abuse vouchers.

    I think it's a shame as in the longer run it will inevitably mean that their prices will go up or the voucher system will be abolished. With CD Wow being one of the cheapest supplier of dvd's (even without vouchers), other than DVD Soon, it'd be a shame to see price hikes.

    I think to a certain effect this is already happening with links at several sites (incl AV Forums) being cancelled.

    I think that it's incumbent upon CD-WOW to alter their system so this is not possible. Whilst any system is open to "abuse" (and I wouldn't really call it abuse), people will do so. Putting up prices is self-defeating as they will cease to be as competitive as they are which ultimately will cost them customers and money.

    Surely it'd just be easier to alter their system to prevent this happening without upsetting their customer base by raising prices.
