I use HMV online constantly and have only just noticed this.
Basically you pay £3 for a "pure HMV" card instore and then register it online for 1000 points which lets you spent £10

points seem rubbish at 1 per £1 spend (gives value @ 1p per point) although loads of special offers and chances to win backstage passes, exclusive content and that kind of stuff

my thoughts are that a £3 spend to get £10 is pretty hot, please comment if you dont


points only last 2 years lol, Terms and conditions can be accessed via link, I don't care lol

£10 purehmv credit = 30000Points

your wording is kinda unclear.
"my thoughts are that a £3 spend to get £10 is pretty hot, please comment if you dont"

You get 1000 point when u purchase a card for £3 if you register online

also you might wanna add points only last for 2 years

beatles on wii £17.99 or1799 points

Its a bit of a weird system the HMV pure points. You have to convert your points to vouchers, not sure how you do it possibly online or over the phone? They are e-vouchers which are activated on your card, but you can only pay for up to 50% of whatever you are buying with your voucher. So say you want a £20 game, you use a £10 voucher from your pure card and pay the rest yourself. You also can only use a maximum of one voucher per transaction up to a max of £50, think the vouchers are in denominations of £5, £10, £20 and £50.
I hope that makes sense! Sorry its my hubbys card and i havent used it, only seen/been with him when he used it:oops:

Thats wrong, you can use HMV Pure credit for the full amount. So buy something for £20 and use £20 pure credit. Or buy something for £30 and use £20 credit and £10 cash.

The only thing you can't do is buy something for £5 and use £20 credit. The credit has to be used in one go on an item that is the same or more than the amount of credit.

Im confused


Can someone tell me if its a good deal or not?

lol

As far as i can tell, looking at the HMV Pure page, 10000 points gets you £2, so the bonus 1000 points you get signing up to this gives you a whopping 20p!

I think i'll pass...

The points system isnt hard to work out

1000 points wont get you anything

about 20,000 will get you some gig tickets which is a 200 quid spend in store to get those points

We were told we couldn't do this by the manager of the store we were in:?

ETA - it was about 3 months ago we used them so they may have updated their T&C's

The only thing that has changed is that they used to give gift vouchers rather than credit on the card. So you could spend less than what the voucher was for and get the change put on a gift card.

Now you just have to spend at least the amount of credit. You must have spoken to a rubbish store manager. Never had any trouble using mine.
