4 disc special extended edition , £7.95 at Comet.
Comet sell DVD's? News to me!
Not found in our local Comet - they hadn't heard of the deal you mention at all.
Only in superstores apparently , Aintree & Speke in my area . Loads of them on the shelves all @ £7.95 for the 4 disc EE version .
I bet its a mistake at that particular store.
Seems to be available in a lot of stores countrywide but also NOT available as well in others . Obviously a promotion gone wrong or limited in its availability.
I got a copy from my superstore in Teesside Park.
They have loads in stock @ £7.95.
They are having a stock clearance, I got Buffy season 6 RRP 79.99 for 14.95!!!!
They had all buffy boxed sets 1 to 6 @ 14.95 but no stock left.
£22.48 for lotr in Amazon, so this sounds a bargain.
Called comet to find out where the closest superstore to me is. Cuts me off after a recorded announcement without even letting me queue to speak with an advisor-mind you when Ive spoke to their call centre in the past they were rude and useless. Then looked on the website, nothing on there to distinguish what is a "superstore" from a normal one. They have some "destination" stores but these are few and far between. Then went to my local store who do sell a small selection but had no LOTR, he searched on the systems, found the DVD and told me there are no copies in Northern England, that Huddersfield was the nearest "destination" store. The other ive read of are in Paisley, Reading and Greenwich. Im in Leeds
Bristol Cribbs Causeway had lots - but I wouldn't try to go there today, its chaos
I think they have rumbled it, as the price is now £49.99 at a not quite so local store
If anyone in Hampshire or surrounds can get me a whole set for the £14.99 prices I would be very pleased to reimburse their outlay on it and any travelling costs (within reason).
I'd love to get my hands on Buffy especially at that price.
I went in the Portsmouth branch and they looked at me like I was having a laugh.
They did look but it wasnt there.
Did you speak to the dippy girl with the long dark hair?
I think she was at the back of the queue when the brain cells were handed out.
Either that or she is Homer J's secret lovechild.
I was there yesterday and she didn't seem to know what planet she was on, let alone anything about such absurdities as serving customers or giving out information.
Phoned Comet customer support too, and they seem to have the same breed of monkey working there too!
No I spoke to a man there. He had a look. Shame they don't sort out these offers as i will restore some of their credability
I was sure I had posted a comment in here?
Was my post deleted??
Thanks for the tip about the Teesside Park Comet, Techno Freak.
Unfortunately when I sent the missus in today they were sold out of LOTR.
When the wife asked if they were getting any more in at that price the guy looked confused and said the price must be a mistake. But when he checked the computer he said the £7.95 price was correct and they are expecting some more in on Tuesday.
Just been to Comet at Aintree , I counted 33 sets of this &
no-one was buying it from what I could see in a 20 minute spell .
ANYONE KNOW IF THEY ANY IN STOCK AT TEESSIDE PARK TODAY ?????
THANX FOR ANY INFO.
Or with the various CDWow vouchers now £13.49
Got mine in southampton today girl on the till looked well shocked
£7.95 in comet in Greenwich
I was in Comet Teesside Park yesterday - they just got a load more in, I did not have any cash to pick some up though.
Also, Morrisons at Teesside Park had The Two Towers boxed set SE 4 discer for £16.99 - there was only one on the shelf though.
What about s.e.london? any-one got one?
I cant find one in Portsmouth or Fareham. Staff well unhelpful too. I know its busy and they want to sell 2 grand tv's and not DVDs, but hey !
Excepting Greenwich I don't think so, none at Old Kent Road, been to Croydon and Colliers Wood with no luck
A massive thanks for Porker for sorting me an LOTR:FOTR EE at cost since London had none ...
Still need one more copy though of LOTR:FOTR EE if anyone else can fulfil one (?)
Also, will be attempting to return the favor as it were later today -- will grab a couple of bond tin sets at OurPrice/Sanity if I can and do the same ...
I had a good look around Newcastle and the metro centre on 30/12 Tuesday and could not find this offer. If anyone is out and about over the hols, if you could pick one up for me I will pay postage etc . ( PM me for postage details etc ). Here's hopeing ......
Happy New year when it comes ,
50+ copies in Bristol Cribbs Causeway this morning
Still £7.95 in Comet Exeter, but only one copy on shelves this afternoon.
