    Sainsburys are doing all four Alien films at 9.99 (at the Wakefield branch anyway!)

    ....even better, it's buy one, get one free!!!

    So, all four for £20 BUT my question is: what would I be missing if I got these instead of the Quadrilogy set?

    one extra disc, a lovely box, less space on your dvd shelf and room for 20 notes in your wallet.

    :D

    So do the versions on sale at Sainsburys. However, unfortunately at Worksop, they are not in a BOGOF offer.

    In that case then, all four for £20 is indeed a bargain and worth the extra space and minus the extra disc!!

    GRRRR..... after seeing them there all week I went in today to buy them and all that was left was Alien and Alien Res.

    Hopefully, they'll get more stock in as the ad in the Guardian says it's running for four weeks. I just hope they don't spot the pricing error

    I had a bit of trouble tracking this down locally.

    In Hampton there was no sign of the BOGOF offer, just £9.99 per set.

    In Walton-on-Thames, just one disc had the BOGOF sticker, so they were obliged to let me have 2 of 4 in the set for £9.99. They also told me that they have been instructed to remove the BOGOF stickers from the covers before putting them on the shelves.

    Kingston had stock of all but Resurection for £9.99 BOGOF.

    To me it seems as if Sainsbury were intially going with £19.99 BOGOF, but then changed their mind to £9.99 ea, inadvertently sending out a batch of discs with both sets of stickers on.

    My advice, don't hang around if you want these and see them at £9.99 BOGOF, it may not last.

    I've checked out this offer at my local branch in Denton, Manchester and the films were £9.99 each but the assistant told me that they were not doing the 2 for 1 offer, as they are not one of the participating stores.

    When I asked him which stores were participating and what criteria participating stores had, he didn't know. All I can suggest is ringing round your local Sainsburys stores to check.

    If anyone has a copy of The Guardian tv guide from saturday, there is an ad in there for them. It says the offer is on for four weeks. Will check tonight for a finish date.
