    Hi,

    If you haven't already noticed Virgin have quite a good 5 DVDs for 30 quid sale on at the moment. More to the point they actually have some good stuff in it. For instance I bought the following (all 2 disc sets):

    Amadeus
    Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back
    A Beautiful Mind
    Saturday Night Fever
    Seven.

    Regards,

    Jules.

    Just picked up Spaced series 1&2, Vertical Limit Superbit (Yeah, I know a real bargain!), Vanilla Sky and loads of others.

    They also had all of the Star Trek movies in the offer - 2-disc Dir. Cut of the The Motion Picture was also included.

    This is the best promo that Virgin have ever done....

    No! I'd love SNF & Grease, but it wasn't shown as on offer. I got:
    Platoon
    Alien
    SNF
    LA Confidential
    Goodfellas

    I'd have liked plenty more that aren't in the charts (Terminator, Saving PR, Silence of Lambs etc) but they weren't on offer.

    This deal isn't mentioned on-line, is it only an in-store promotion?

    Walked round the store picking up discs and realised I'd got about 20. Put 10 back and ended up with all 5 prisoner discs, Amadeus SE, Batman Returns, League of Gentleman Christmas special El Mariachi/Desparado (2on1) and The Wedding Singer. I don't how Virgin have managed to fix this offer with the distributors but hopefully we'll see another price war starting as a result.

    Thanks,

    BB

    Thanks for the heads up, bought 5 yesterday and would have been more but the Piccadilly Circus store was pretty much cleared out. Asked the chap at the till if the store was going to be restocked, "Not sure", he said, so does anyone know how long the promotion is on for?

    Just ask them to bring out of the back.. they had run out of beverley hills cop and the computer showed 40 in stock...i ask the guy to go inside and get a copy for me. (oxford st.)

    But some dvd's on the list above were not marked...you reckon i could go ask them to scan it and see if it's a part of the offer or is it only specific to each store??:confused:
