I thought this was a bargain anyway :)

ASDA have said they will be selling this instore for £5. RRP is £18.

My local said they don't know the price yet. Sky news and BBC have both reported it, ASDA have apparently confirmed it.

Showing as £9 online. http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30200-1276110,00.html?f=vg

Now available online http://www.asda-entertainment.co.uk/asda/36580.product

£5 including free saturday delivery if ordered before midnight tonight (19th July) - Bryan839

Excellent price, if its true :)
#2
Now.......are you really sure that they are gonna get there delivery? lol

Hot price!
#3
Can anyone confirm?? If so, excellent deal.
#5
As I said in another thread... last year ASDA undercut EVERYONE at midnight and sold it for about £7. This is by far a better deal though - knew they would be the cheapest! :)
#6
so how do i cancel with amazon as i have preordered, the only option is a label for when it gets here and the return cost of postage is to be paid for by me?
this is too good to miss...
#7
12am saturday right?
#8
excellent price, hot.

Although i won't be getting it, i haven't read any of the others or seen any of the films

I thought the publishers had decided to cancel Asda's order this year due to a technicalilty regarding a old payment.

I really hope they do.

Asda are using the book as a publicity stunt, it will harm the small book shops, and it is just to attract customers.. Bargain aside, this is just wrong....

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Competition is good for business! Who in their right mind would pay £18.00 ?

You're right.

I feel terribly sorry for Borders charging £18 for this book, so much so that I'm going to pay the extra £13 and get it from them.

Wake up!

Even at £5 this is some seriously expensive toilet paper and it's nowhere near as nice as Andrex Aloe Vera, on the whole.

Harry Potter books are right up my alley.

No, don't get me wrong £18 is silly money, but to sell at a loss is wrong..
#16
Does anyone know how long it will stay at £5 for?

As my business friends would tell you it's called a loss leader based on economies of scale.

It's just life, right or wrong!

Can people stop going on about the small bookshops i mean if i didnt get it from asda i would just get it from tescos or another store selling it cheap i mean who here can actually say they bought the previous books at small bookshops?
#19
Voted Hot

I work at WHSmiths and will be there for the opening at midnight... There is no way we will be matching this price.
#20
Ordered.

Cracking price. Thanks to MonkeyHugger.:thumbsup:
#21
Good Afternoon

I just ordered two copies from Asda's website and they both showed as £5 each so the person who posted this deal is correct.

Many thanks for the saving
#22
Amazing price, how are small bookshops supposed to compete with deals like that, what happened to Supermarkets just selling food! - Good for the consumer though.

I like WH Smiths free book and £10 voucher offer, but they wanted a £3 deposit and would not guarantee me the price wouldn't go up, and each staff member told me a different price. So i had to leave it.

lol...

We still dont know the price even though the books arrived in today's delivery.

I think it will be £8.99. Definitely no less than that :thumbsup:
#26
crazy price, just canceled my amazon order and ordered from asda, cheers
#27
I just ordered, fantastic. Thanks OP.
#28
Can't wait to read this. Thanks op.
#29
Whats the final tesco price going to be? Surely they will match this?
#30
Just ordered mine from the Asda site: £5 delivered and guaranteed Saturday delivery if ordered before midnight on the 19th (today). I wanted to go out on the booze tomorrow so no way of getting a midnight copy. This way my daughter gets it delivered to the door on Saturday morning while I nurse my hangover.

What a bargain!!!
#31
thanks for this i have ordered 2 one for me amd one for my nephew also ordered the dvd's 1-4 so just over £26 in total
#32
The supermarkets certainly weren't stocking Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone when it was first published!

There's a long debate to be had about how Waterstones and the supermarkets control the volume end of the book market.
(and Cd / DVD etc)

Ultimately we wil be buying everything from Asda or Tesco, and if their buyers dont fancy stocking something, we will never hear of it!

HMV/waterstones, Woolies, Virgin, WHSmith and others are all in danger of being bought out or collapsing in the next 10 years,

Argue til cows come home if this is a good or bad thing!
#33
Blooming bargain!!! Especially with saturday delivery FREE as well! Can't believe it! Leaving for me hols at 10:30am...hope it gets here by then.
#34
Hot, many thanks OP, rep added!

edit, LOL @ eBay now! Loads of 22hr auctions ;)

Work there too - ours arrived a day or so ago. A unconfirmed and subject to change £9.99
#36
Funny this - I guess it's Asda flexing muscle against the publishers. I can't see how a loss leader works by mail order though... I've no idea if it's still the case, but they were banned in Ireland as a concept - it was illegal to sell at lower than cost to prevent this sort of behaviour.

Just as a matter of interest though - not only do people shop there, but does anyone actually HAVE a small local bookshop anymore? Aren't they all Waterstones ?
#37
thanks for this just ordered via quidco for a extra 3% so £4.85 in total !! woohoo no brainer bargin . daughter well happy .
thanks op
#38
The Waterstones price/WHSmith price is good enough, especially if you are planning to go on midnigit, as they give stuff away for free and throw a party for the people attending.

Its much better than waiting for the postman to arrive - atleast the adrenaline will be much higher!
#39
Thanks so much for posting this - it's a real hassle for me getting out to the shops at the moment as my husband is in hospital and I don't have the time to go out in search of a Harry Potter book! Wanted to go toa midnight opening for this really, but obviously I can't!

Hope they really do deliver on Saturday (they must have some sort of deal going with Royal Mail to be able to 'guarantee' Saturday delivery, surely?)

Am really looking forward to reading this.
