    For me this all depends on what the blue-cross discount at the till is. If it isn't much, it may still be cheaper online. We'll see on Friday.

    Not getting excited about this to be honest, they will just go and put the prices back up on the blue cross stock so you end up paying literally the same as buying the two anyway.

    I'm not sure but this offer (regardless of whether they increase their prices or not) may not be avaliable in all of their stores that are still operating. So take note of the advice given on the Martin Lewis website and check first before travelling if an "HMV" shop is not near your work place, or your making a specific journey to your nearest store. :lesson: ;)

    Well, at the minute it is 50% off all blue cross stuff in my local. I just bought the BDs of New York Ripper and Cannibal Holocaust for 13.50 :)

    Come Friday, no discount no go and they can stick their bogof.

    Some of the prices they have on stuff at the moment are madness. Just been in Moorgate branch and they have the Noel Gallagher concert BluRay marked up at £35 and the DVD at £30 and then 30% off. Thats almost 50% more than RRP so even with discount is expensive plus I can't believe were ever really that price.

    Plus they are clearly bringing in a lot of tat. Christmas CDS anyone???

    My local store has been cleared out. All i managed to bag was Home Alone and The Sound of Music on Bluray. Both for £9.

    If only i had known it was 50% off. Really wanted the Die Hard Movies.

    I wouldn't be too bothered about it. It seems every store (& indeed every person serving in every store) has a different idea of what discount to give. :D

    What a load of tat in my local one. You'd already got it or you wouldn't touch it stuff.

    You'll all love this: They had on DVD in the bogoff section, Abe Lincoln Vampire Slayer for........£22. I couldn't believe the price so checked several.

    I was in the Derby store on Friday, bit of a jumble sale really. Nothing really worth shouting about. However they still have the 5 for £30 offer if anybody is interested.

    Guys, the BOGOF sale does not apply to Manchester Market St because the store is closing. Only the stores staying open are doing BOGOF. Manchester Market St will be doing the '50% off' sale, but I doubt there's much left of interest in that store.

    My last fare ended up being round the corner from the Oxford Street store (Dean Street for those who know the area) and having found a spare space on the back of a taxi rank in Berners street I decided to troll around their flagship store. Well i'm afraid the store, in some areas, resembled one of those shops which looked like a cross between a cheapo book / cd style outlet that rents empty properties untill their lease expires. :( Well over half the shelves were empty and the jazz section was shoved behind the classical department as the jazz area had been closed off. Because they are in administration HMV (apparently) can't buy any replacement stock.

    I spoke to one of the guys there and he said, and I quote "we're treated like mushrooms here and we have no idea whether this store will remain open or not, we won't know untill around the end of the month. It's all sensitive and secret information at the moment and it depends if they get a buyer, and if they do what they will want to do with the business".

    As far i'm concerned the prices on some items were daft and there wasn't, imo, anything worth buying even with the blue cross BOGOF sale. So it was a case of walk in...walk about... walk out...and bought nowt. :rolleyes:

    I felt a bit down walking out of the store though given what it used to be like, and there wasn't that many people in there either much as it has been for some time now. It will be a shame if this particular flagship store closes down though, its probably the biggest of its kind in the UK. :(

    My thoughts exactly. The amount of times I've popped in to hmv to try and get a bargain, on the off chance because you can't view store prices on line, only to find the £8 blu-ray on amazon, perhaps 3 or 4 years old, costs 18.99 in hmv. Fark em, can't be bothered to chance it.

    Wow I would definitely go for Battle Of Algiers and Kill Bill if they have any in stock locally. How much were the Ozu dual-formats? I already have Tokyo Story but none of the other BFI ones. I'm actually going to be working at my local HMV on Monday for a while after temping last 2 Christmases, hoping for some bargains (who am I kidding, I'll be processing stock, of course I'll get bargains!).

    For what it's worth and as an addendum to my above post, I did see the 3D version of "The Lorax" at £10.99 and a selection of the Blu-ray versions of various Bond titles at a fiver each. This was at the flagship store in Oxford Street remember and may not be replicated in other stores.

    The only way (at the moment at any rate) you can get these Bond films cheaper is if you buy the odd title on "ebay" or buy the whole collection. But if you only want a handful of the Bond titles as do I (not every film in the series was to everyones taste especially "Octopussy :eek: :suicide:) then this is the next cheapest way to get a few.

    Newcastle store, pretty much as dire as a sale can get :laugh: went through thousands of blu rays and CD's and frankly the prices were a joke, so many have been upped to insane levels making buy one get one free a total joke!

    In the end I got The Dead Blu Ray for £5 (which was cheaper than online even)
    and Ren Harview - Through the Night CD for free as it was also £5.

    Them two were flukes I would say, finding anything good is too hard and time consuming.

    Very hard to find any good deals, I spent a long time and almost gave up until I found the CD to go with the film.

    have to agree, this is not a genuine sale...

    massive mark up on items in the so called sale.

    and also selected obscure items that no one wants in the first place, same with blockbuster, i can get everything cheaper online, without it being in a sale. its just a big fat :thumbsdow
