Although this is no good to those of you living outside of the UK, MVC are having a 'big fat sale' (their words, not mine) instore, through which I picked up Asphalt for £5-99. The online the price isn't reduced.

That was the only MoC disc they had, and god knows I went through every item on the racks to check. I don't know if it'll be the same in all stores, but at least this branch (Romford) had something.

It is one pound per disc, so if it is a double disc release, like Michael, they charge two pounds.

Nick, why doesn't CDWOW sell MoC discs? It's the most reliable seller I can think of and it doesn't charge you any P&P to anywhere in the world. Are there plans for this to happen? I for one would be very happy as I buy from them often.

Annie, this is the answer I received from CD-WOW when asking about their plans for selling MoC discs:

"Hi David,

Thank you for your suggestion, we will review the Eureka catalogue and may add some of their releases in the very near future."

Fantastic news! And especially the part about the "very near future"!

from Sunrise thread:
peerpee wrote:The price at amazon is wrong. The new MoC Series SUNRISE edition should be 19.99 list price.
btw. NIGHTMARE ALLEY will be 16.99 list price.

Anyway could you tell them to fix that price? I'd like to pre-order it before their 25% off disappears. Since amazon doesn't charge taxes to US customers their prices are overall the best.

Amazon also dispenses with the tax for Australian buyers. They usually end up cheaper than Bensons.

Yes, they are cheaper than Bensons. If only Bensons would subtract the tax.

Also, if only amazon had Punishment Park for pre-order!

(I'll cross-post this in the thread on "cheapest prices")

sendit.com have a couple of the titles significantly reduced at the present time.

Metropolis- £11-99
Spione - £10-99
Tartuffe - £10-99, and
Pitfall - £11-99

Actually, there are a few others so here's the full list

Postage is, I think, free to the UK. I'm not sure how the overseas charges stack up though, it might be that they're still too expensive once that's factored in.

Send it actually charges 1.6 pounds per DVD and they don't take off the VAT for those outside the UK.

Is there a site that lists the cheapest prices for region 2 dvds similar to dvdpricesearch.com?

Try dvdpricecheck.co.uk or find-dvd.co.uk, but bear in mind that these sites assume the DVD is being delivered to a UK address and show corresponding shipping rates. DVDpricecheck is looking to implement a setting where you can select a different delivery country, but it's not running just yet.

happyhunter.com does have that sort of setting already, but doesn't seem to check much of a range of UK e-tailers.

HI,

I ordered from sendit and ended up having to pay VAT plus an additional duty charge of 6.16 Euros. They shipped two MOC DVDs together. (I live in Germany.)

Yes, Sendit does not remove VAT but their shipping is pretty reasonable. I've never been hit with extra customs/duty charges on my orders to California. They ship items together.

a head's up: just ordered Asphalt from sendit.com for GBP 7.49! as for sendit.com in general. Ordered my first order from them last month, Spione, and had a bit of a hard time getting them to trust me (my credit card was issued in the US and I now live in Hungary so had to provide documentation) but after that they were excellent. Notifications and speedy delivery. Polar opposite of my DeepDiscountDecadeLongDeliveryDVD days.

Anyway...Asphalt! Stoked.

sendit doesn't take off the VAT for me in canada, but they ship for free, which is even better!

I feel obligated to pick it up at that price. It's been a damn expensive couple of months, dvd & LD-wise for me but that deal is too good to let go.

Francesco, giullare di Dio (Masters of Cinema Series) only is £12.99 at the UK brick and mortar store, Silverscreen. This is not an online store; you will have to get on a bus, on foot and stand in a queue. Remember your hat and gloves! :D

It's currently in stock at £9.99 at play.com, and you don't even need to get on a bus...

Remember you get a [url=ttp://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/index.php?page=ShoppingMall]50p discount on all CD-WOW[/url] products linking via DVD Times

Nah, forget about ever using 50p links; use DVD Bargain and get £1.00 off links. DO NOT use discount vouchers in addition to the £1 discount, as CD-WOW will cancel your order.

Why do CD-WOW not just stock all Master of Cinema titles? Amazing prices, though, especially with an extra £1 off!

Thanks, Gordon. If only I'd known about this a month ago when I ordered 8 Criterions from them... Better late than never.
