All the better, 'cos with Amazon you can be donating a bit of money to keep this site alive. Smilie

Evening, maestro. I didn't know that - how does it work?

If you follow a link to Amazon, Play or HMV from us (normally will look like Buy at Amazon), then purchase that item then they'll automatically send us a (tiny) percentage of the sale. You needn't do anything but go to the shop's site via one of our links.

I've already got them but has to be worth a punt for anyone who hasn't . . .

I'm rather wary of those 'sales'. Even after Christmas, they appear to be just based on the RRP rather than the store's normal selling price, so you're unlikely to get much off. Clearly, Men Behaving Badly is a genuine bargain, but take for example The Inbetweeners box set.

£12.99 on Play, £13 on Amazon and HMV.

Cheers Aaron. I use Chrome with the 'invisible hand' add-on, and it claimed
'This is the best price (£13.89). The next best price (£14.93) is at Asda-Entertainment.co.uk' - the lying swines.

Aye. Invisible Hand is very useful, but as proven it's not entirely reliable, and there are many shops it would have you believe don't exist. It only seems to know those that it has money-making affiliateship with.

I always use DVD Dealpond to compare prices.

Is the Absolutely Fabulous box set now deleted?

It doesn't appear to be. What makes you think so?

Send it.com must be in dire straights, first they add £1.99 delivery and now they're trying to flog things for under £1.

Seen a couple of things but by the time I've paid delivery I might as well have gone on Amazon.

When I do price comparisons or search on Amazon it comes up at a high price.

Sendit only charge for delivery on ridiculously cheap items. I hope they're not in trouble, as they're the same company that runs most others: Zavvi, ASDA, Tesco, The Hut, Argos, Woolworths, and a few others IIRC.

Not sure what you're looking at, but the AF box I see is just £16.99 on Amazon UK.

Smilie It was only available from other sellers the other day at ridiculous prices like £79.99. Will be getting it on Friday now then, for ONE episode, I am tragic. I don't even like the episode.

It has been rather reasonably priced of late, so perhaps they had sold out.

Probably the case. Better still be there Friday (well after midnight tomorrow) or I'll be fuming.

What sites do you link on? If I remember I'll click on one.

£3.85 for Let Them Eat Cake on Amazon, BARGAIN!
