    Not found in our local Comet - they hadn't heard of the deal you mention at all.

    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.

    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 :(

    I think they have rumbled it, as the price is now £49.99 at a not quite so local store :D

    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 :devil: especially at that price.

    Cheers,

    Coop

    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!

    :devil:

    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. :smashin:

    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.

    A massive thanks for Porker for sorting me an LOTR:FOTR EE at cost since London had none ... :smashin: :clap:



    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 ...
