    its not 17.5% off the price, its about 15% (14.89%).

    Multiply the price of the DVD by 7/47 and this is the amount you will save :)

    *subject to them rounding amounts possibly

    I'm confused. The X-Men 2 DVD says one disc. Is this some cut down version thus why its a tenner?

    EDIT: Nevermind, found out now ;)

    Or divide it by 117.5 then multiply by 100 :) but you are right it is roughly 15% off :)

    Well I'm no Carol Vorderman but why not just simply divide by 1.175 ?

    Seems good deal unless you buy more than one disc, in which case you have to pay delivery for each item separately !

    I thought they charge £1.29 (or something) per order, then add 35p per item. So if you order 1 DVD it's £1.64, 2 DVDs £1.99, 3 DVDs £2.34 and so on.

    £1.64 for each disc, I think it only does what you're saying if you order more than one of the same thing.

    I've now tested it.

    I put the Indiana Jones DVD set & a XBOX game into my basket. Initially it calculates it at £1.64 per item, but if you change your delivery option to "wait until the whole order is ready for delivery", they recalculate delivery to £1.29 + £0.35 + £0.35 = £1.99.

    Also, if you want to use the VAT free coupon, it comes up with a warning saying that you can only use the coupon if you select the "wait until the whole order is ready for delivery" option. Otherwise you would have to make seperate orders if the items were out of stock or pre-orders.

    Hope this clears things up.:)
