Shopping for DVD’s

I’ve decided to fill in some gaps in my DVD collection and was quite interested to know what the current best deals were so filled up my baskets at various stores. All prices are quoted in £ sterling and were correct at time of writing.

Adjusted for Channel Islands 3.57 18.85 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00

Obviously the best deal is to order individual items from wherever they are cheapest. Amazon only include free postage if you order enough items so bear that in mind.

Nice to see both Amazon and BlahDVD offering discounts for Channel Islanders being that we don’t pay VAT :)

I didn’t include; Amazon Jersey, Loaded 247, FrontRowDVD, DVD World or DVD Source as they didn’t have all the titles available.

Based on a previous comment left here I would like to point out I receive no kickback whatsoever from any of these companies except for a few cents as an Amazon affiliate. For those listed above I have been a customer of all except Popcorn and have done technical consultancy in the past for BlahDVD which means I know a couple of the guys there.

1 Available individually and in a double-pack. Included whatever was cheapest at each supplier.

2 Seems to be a cheaper set out soon but not available until next month. Would drop the expensive suppliers down considerably.

    I’m not surprised that you found Amazon to be the cheapest overall. I’ve always found them to be the cheapest for Channel Islanders and I rarely look anywhere else! P.S. BMX Bandits????? Are you serious!
