That will probably just bring their prices down to everyone else's.
Bought Misery on DVD for £3. That's cheaper than they are going second hand on ebay. Thanks for the heads up.
The sale hasn't started yet.
Brilliant, it's gonna be some sale....

The sale is going to last an entire month:
if this is a genuine 25% sale it will be amazing. But I reckon it'll be old stock previously on sale at a stupid price knocked down to an Amazon price for 4 weeks.... Hope I'm wrong. Remember that topcashback.co.uk give a further 5.05% cashback.. Other sites may do so too
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
Sale started today. Just got 25% off a live 2-CD set of Peter Hammill - £14 down to £10.50.

reduced to £10.50? Shoulda gone to Amazon. I think that pretty much proves the point. I can't wait for a follow-up BBC advert report.
I'm waiting for their liquidation sale as I expect 2013 will be the year that HMV will head the same way as Jessops and Comet etc. It's only a matter of time, they've been struggling in the retail market for a few years now. I looked at sale prices yesterday on-line, consistently Amazon is still cheaper, often by a long way.
Synology D212j 2TB NAS -> Squeezebox Touch (w/upgraded PSU) -> Micromega MyDAC -> Resolution Opus CD player -> Ecosse interconnect -> Krell 400xi integrated -> Chord Carnival LS cable -> Raidho 1.0; RA mains cables on all kit.

HMV spent the 1990 and 2000s squeezing as much as they could out of customers. Why sell a £15 RRP DVD for a tenner when you can bundle it as part of a 2 for £20 offer and inflate turnover. Amazon quietly went about hoovering up market share. I know Amazon did their little Channel Islands VAT trick, but the differences in prices are more to do with HMV charging as much as they can, rather than what the market expects. It will be sad to see them go (no trip to Dublin as a child was complete without an hour browsing in HMV on Grafton St), but in reality - they had every opportunity to adapt and the decided not to.

despite my misgivings, I just bought the Lord of the Rings blu-ray box set (theatrical, not extended, cut) for £11.25 (£15 less 25%). This is the blue-cross sale, but checked the website and the offer is only available in-store (HMV Moorgate).

That was £10.00 in my local Sainsburys last week.
