HMV has an offer on a huge range of films in their buy 1 get 1 free offer thats on.
ooops, sorry, forgot the link
dont know about the uk,but over here a hmv 2 for 1 sale usually means they are priced at twice the price
Yep, it's the same here
Gangs Of New York £24.99 just paid £4.99 at cdwow
Bob,sure it's not £5.99?
I can only get it for that going through the links.
£8.99 normal price and then 3 quid off.
Ordered it anyway,hell of a price!
same here one hour photo 19quid just got it for a fiver(or there abouts)
HMV are one of the worst shops in have ever encountered, they are always more expensive, I dont know why anyone would shop there!
sorry guys, just seen the offer and I thought i would post it.
You can get some good deals at HMV stores. I got 'Our Friends in the North' boxset for 24.99 - Hadn't seen it cheaper elsewhere.
And I bought 'Jam' for £9.99 from HMV. I don't think they're any worse than Virgin on prices.
Appreciate the tip arcam.
Because its fun to browse through a massive selection of DVDs in a real shop?
The BOGOF includes Bond but they are a pound cheaper in Woolies!
Don't automatically assume that HMV's sales will be crap...in the last one I got Persuaders: Complete boxset for £19.99 instead of £69.99...also Hammer Horror Vampires £9.99 instead of £19.99, Norman Wisdom boxset for £24.99 instead of £59.99 and Protestor's: Season #2 for £9.99 instead of £19.99!
They also shipped them out a quite stunning 42 minutes after ordering!!!!!!!!!!!!
this thread is about their 2 for 1 sale though.which are bordering on a con.
but i do agree that you can pick up some bargains on other sales,occassionly
Just checked my credit card bill £5.99 (only a pound out) A bit better than £24.99 and a free film
Well, I have actually bought something in this 2:1 sale - the monster collection Bride of Frankenstein and Dracula dvds because Universal seem to be about to delete them from their catalogue and the only place I saw them any cheaper was Splash (ahem) :
Got Gangs of New York from Cd-Wow though
I now refuse to even consider buying anything from this organisation. (HMV)
Some sale items I bought a few years back were apparently repackaged that many times that an item I purchased came complete with a crust of bread in the box.
This was found when the security tag was not cancelled at the checkout.....or should I say the one in the box wasn't.
On stepping outside the shop I was apprehended by a security worker who asked me to step back into the shop for the item to be checked over.
When they opened the box...another security tab was found inside complete with the offending nasty looking crust......I never did find out what originally adorned it, nor it must be said, did I care.
Being not very pleased about being apprehended and ushured into the store, I asked what a security tab was doing inside the box, which was wrapped in cellophane.
He told me that it was more likely to be a returned item from another store and repackaged for resale.
As far as the crust went..... I reckon I'd have been better keeping that than the actual goods.
i thought the hmv exclusive coupling box set was quite good. However you can pretty much guarantee it will be on sale in jan
The other day whilst in HMV I came very close to losing my rag.
It just p****s me off when they deliberatley hike up (most of) their prices to £19.99 in this 'BOGOF' offer. Considering some were only £12.99 a few weeks before when bought alone.
It's when I saw Predator SE for £23.99 in the offer when I saw red
Even Morrison's pulled a similar stunt with their Sara Lee cakes a few months back
