    Superb spots lubo!!!!! Thanks!!! :thumbsup: :smashin:
    What a massive reduction on both sets :eek: :clap:

    I have ordered both for £5.89 @ thehut.com

    - they're a reliable retailer, and I'd probably trust them more than Asda who's online DVDs/CDs/Games business is basically outsourced to a Jersey company (like many of the other high street supermarket's online 'Jersey' entertainment shops) *** EDIT: as pointed out Asda use thehut.com ***

    There's also 7% casback via www.quidco.com/the-hut

    Price checks:

    The West Wing - Season 3 (6 discs): www.find-dvd.co.uk/D033649.htm
    thehut.com - www.thehut.com/hut/87463.product

    Charmed - Season 1 (6 discs): www.find-dvd.co.uk/PHE8692.htm
    thehut.com - www.thehut.com/hut/98362.product

    awesome bargains...

    cheers guys...

    one side note: To the best of my knowledge Ebuyer own the hut. And ebuyer are in serious financial difficulties at the moment. (http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=6426)

    caveat emptor and all that, im not that worried about a £6 purchase but just in case anyone is thinking of putting in a larger order id be slightly wary....

    Thanks OP (& others) just gone for ER, Charmed, WW and Smallville from Asda.

    Hope everybody saw the 10% off code 'Bonanza' (Banner on site gives details). It's valid until 30th August.

    Just over £29 for 4 TV series can't be bad!

    Just found and ordered this...
    Without A Trace - Season 1 (4 discs)
    = £14.89 delivered
    www.thehut.com/hut/92087.product

    The 10% off with Asda looks good, and can take the price below thehut.com's price, but after going through Quidco (which is actually 10% cashback for thehut.com not 7% as its says; and 3% for Asda); I'm actually better off with thehut.com


    Perhaps this thread should be re-titled.... Bank Holiday bargains at TheHut - Marc ??

    - some might be missing out, because they don't like The West Wing ;) .... like the forum member who posted a new thread on Stargate SG1 at thehut.com after it was posted here

    btw there's a 5% off discount code for TheHut.com floating around
    - you'll have to look for it (where you might also find other hot deals in the UK :D ;) ;))

    too late for me, as all orders placed

    I can't see any of these coming off, but I ordered E.R. season 1, The West Wing season 3 and Stargate SG-1 season 8 anyway.

    Cheers OP.

    How long do DVD's take from this supplier?

    I am interested in Charmed but I haven't used them before.

    I've used them before and it came within a week, I still don't have much faith in them though, although thinking about it it's probably just the fact that they insist on calling discs 'disks' that annoys me :rotfl:.

    That and the fact that I had to re-register to place todays order!, it's irritating stuff like that will irk me enough to hold a grudge which will stop me from using them if a couple of sites have the same low price for something I want.

    There websites puts me off. It looks rather basic. They don't put proper details about the DVD's. They don't show the number of discs for charmed. I assume it is six (£1 each). :eek:

    They switched to a brand new site a while back, so that's why you needed to register again.
    Most online retailers are very shoddy when it comes to putting up accurate technical specs.

    Have never had a problem with them at all since first using them earlier this year - many many bargains purchased from them, and the quidco cashback at 10% isn't bad (as already paid on my quidco earnings :) )

    Yup, exactly..... I remember that now, as a regular customer, some months ago I had to re-register; and the technical spec accuracy is always irrelevant - as the studios often supply the (in)accurate specs which are replicated across all the retailers

    Thats hardly a reasonable reason though is it, what muppets they are when they can't even update their website without losing their entire customer database :rolleyes: Every other site manages to upgrade seamlessly but not these apparently.

    I don't consider it a problem. There are plenty of sites which require you to re-register when they change to a new format. The Empire site is another one which affected me recently. It's a minor inconvenience at worst.

    The site's back up, and all these items are now at max RRP ("You Save: 0%") :eek: :rolleyes:

    .... so I wonder how many of our orders will be honoured ?? :devil:

    I have 3 separate orders - West Wing S3 from Asda and Charmed / ER from The Hut. All show as processing, two with despatch date of tomorrow and one witha despatch date of the 29th. Not holding my breath for any of them to make it to me.
