Maximum CD-Wow Discount Thread

1d, 2w agoFound 1 decade, 2 weeks ago
I was trying to buy something from CD-Wow today and I found it virtually impossible to find a discount link that was still working. I went through every one and (with the help of emmajk42) removed the ones that had expired.

Now I had the trouble of working out which ones would give me the best discount as the descriptions aren't very detailed. So I decided it was about time I did something about it!

Post #1 will be kept up to date with all the best CD-WOW Vouchers, Discount Links and a Quidco/Discount Usage Guide.

Good work fella.

Great Stuff Gary, have some rep :)

Gary, that is an absolutely excellent post. You made a logo and everything! I can't give you more rep as you got some last night :p

This is a brilliant point of reference for buying from CDWow. We can point to this for people to get the best discounts.

Thanks again Gary :thumbsup:

Might be worthwhile stating that the site www.topcashback.co.uk gives 6% cashback whereas QuidCo pay 5%.

True but their admin charge is a bit higher than quidco..

Don't think many people have accounts there yet: you might want to post your refferal link so you get a little extra cashback.
EG mine is [url]www.TopCashBack.co.uk/[/url] (so your username is at end).

Not allowed referral links here Sean... I edited it out.

Never heard of this site before... But im a Quidco fanboy so its the only one il be supporting at the moment, unless another reputable cashback website offers a lot more than Quidco!

I don't think it is, is it? I hadn't heard of topcashback before, they seem to compare quite favourably to Quidco. I don't want to pollute Gary's thread, so I've started a new on on topcashback Here:

Has anyone ever purchased from cd-wow.ie or cd-wow.us and had it delivered to the UK?

Not from those two, but I remember a few years ago (4 maybe) there was a time when you could add a different number after the "www" in the URL and it would take you to a Hong Kong version of the site. When you converted the prices back to UKP from HKD, they were a fair bit cheaper. The only drawback was you needed a credit card to pay (i.e. you couldn't use Switch).

I don't see why you shouldn't able to order from other 'branches' - depends if the prices work out better when converted. You can't use the discount links and codes that are available for the UK site though.

EDIT: Looking at the US site, I think things are more expensive. CDs that are £6.99 on the UK site are $13.95 on the US site - at today's conversion rate that's £7.37 (and your credit card company will probably convert at a lower rate too).

Thanks Gary! this thread is extremely useful, no more tearing my hair out on the voucher page.

Wonder if anyone can help me looking to pick up both naked gun 2 and 3 from cdwow. They are in stock, but dont appear on the search.. is there anyway of getting a direct link which also includes the £1 off discount. I have been trying everything...

Ah - this is something I noticed yesterday. Something seems to have happened with discount links, in that they no longer seem to take money off items that are £4.99 or less.

Umm... I think your right - i will amend the article when i have a few mins to do some investigating. Thanks for the heads up - this is just what this thread needs!
#19
Ok i have found a way to get £1 off the £4.99 DVD's still - hang in there!
#20
Also worth mentioning that cdwow sometimes cancel orders that use both links and vouchers together. I've just received this email:

Hi,

I'm afraid we have had to cancel and refund your order for the following reason.

As the voucher redemption on this order does not adhere to the 'Promotional,
Discounts and Voucher redemption' section of our Terms and Conditions, your
order has been cancelled. To view our Terms and Conditions, please follow the
link below:


To ensure any future orders are not cancelled, please ensure that you read and
adhere to our Terms and Conditions.


Kind Regards

Right... stick ya e-mail address in here... (And before someone says it.. i know it says it expires in 2003 but it hasnt)

http://www3.cd-wow.com/promotion.php?promo_refcode=12020_1&affid=12020

It will then send you user specific discount link which still takes £1 off £4.99 DVD's

So if you want more than one discount link then i think you will need to have more than 1 e-mail.

Il add this into the main post shortly!

Could you give more details please...

What did you order?
What Discount Link you use?
What Voucher (inc Value) did you use?
Did you use Cashback? Which site?
What payment method (VISA, Switch, Mastercard)?

Be nice to be able to build up a little database of them.

i had an order cancelled when using a link and a voucher together

it would be quite easy to detect this being used on their end

i can't get the £2 off games link to work

I bought the Bob Marley cd this morning...used the discount link you mentioned at the beginning of this thread...haven't got a clue where my £2 voucher came from as I've had 5 or 6 for ages...didn't use a card as it was free...no cashback site...

I can't complain as I've used a combination many times without problems. I've cheekily emailed them to ask for my £2 voucher back!!
#25
Haha.. well if you were trying to get it free then no wonder that canceled it - that's taking the p a bit.
#26
It seems that they have pulled the £2 HSBC Game Voucher - can someone else please check and post on here.

If so then this is something that they have done today... I wonder if they are onto our thread?

EDIT: I have now added a new HSBC voucher and updated the main post!
#27
All the links are now updated and working again! :pirate:

It didnt take them long to remove some of the codes i was using!
#28
thanks gary, it worked! all ordered now... and let the downright stupidity of naked gun begin :)
#29
Well done mate, rep and HOT for you
#30
Received this earlier:

Hello

Thank you for your email.

We will not be giving you back your voucher as you have used several vouchers from this campaign on numerous orders under several different email addresses.

If you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.



Kind Regards

www.topcashback.co.uk is a quite well known and their admin charges are the same as Quidco.
If you are inviting people to only read the first post in this thread to give them the best buying discounts maybe it should be mentioned along with Egg etc.

Great post by the way :)
#33
or those with an Egg Money Card, you can also use the Egg Money link in your Rewards Control Panel to save an extra 10%. Simply copy and paste that in after going through QuidCo (between point 2 and 3). And then use the Egg Money card to pay.

Has anyone tried this though? I wouldn't of thought you could get 10% Egg cashback and Quidco cashback?? Normally you would have to purchase using just the Egg link.
#34
Its only 1% more and i dont feel i know enough about them to recomend them in my main post - i feel most people use quidco more and to sign up to topcash back to get 1% wont make much difference after the £5 (£2.50 admin charge)
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]I may add it in - im undecided yet... do the rest of you think i should include topcashback?[/SIZE]
