Samsung BDP1600 £46.96 at Costco

I know, I know... Costco isn't available to everybody, and its just hilarious to post the cost of a years membership and the cost of the item in your post... but please attempt to refrain on this occasion.

I had a search, and I think this is the cheapest bluray player on here, its got all the internet stuff going on (seperate dongle required), and the box looked quite impressive too

Bristol Branch

Which costco was this please?
#2
How much is membership ? Makro card never cost me.
#3
Its the one in Bristol, and I think a costco card is around £12, if you already know someone with a card, slightly more otherwise

More like 70 quid when you add the cost of a Costco card

.........If you ONLY buy THIS during the year.

Is it £46.96 plus vat ? and did I hear correctly that if their prices end in 96p or 97p then that's their final discount ?

This model has been out for over a year now, £114 on Amazon and here's a review

Inclusive of VAT, it was £38 or something without the VAT, I'm not sure on the pricing policy at Costco, its definitely that at Currys though

What Costco did you get it, and was it a managers special?, as all Costco prices can be different depending on stock levels.

The Costco Return Policy is like an insurance policy. Should the item stop working, even after the warranty has expired, Costco refund you the full amount no questions asked. Try that at Currys !!!

Worth every penny in my opinion.
#9
Costco is the same ..If it ends in 97 then there not restocking it .
#10
Pretty much anyone on work can get a Costco card, if in work. Myself and 2 friends share the annual cost of the card, so costs us £7.50 per year which is well worth it

If you already know someone with a card isnt it free? couldnt you just use theirs?
#12
Membership aside...its still a fab price!! Voted hot, well spotted.
#13
Worst thing about Costco is that you go in there aiming to spend £30 on a few of their offers and come out spending £150!

Just bought a Sony BDPS570 (3D capable, although I don't currently have a 3D TV, for £140), i'd have bought the Samsung for £47 had I known, but Richer Sounds are sh1te for taking back stuff if nothing is wrong with it. The Sony will be better, but not worth 3 times the price. Damn it!

Suppose I couldn't guarantee that the Metrocentre branh would have any stock left - only really seen Panasonic Blu Ray players at out Costco.

You think you could plug hard drive in or use a usb stick and play movies that way with this

Good price but I don't like Costco.
My wife has a Costco card and I go with her sometimes, imo you may find a few items cheaper but on the whole they are no cheaper than regular supermarkets.
People think its going to be cheaper but i'm not so sure
#17
If you get caught using someone else's card...court case, better to share the membership cost & always attend with the main cardholder, A few years back Costco deals were great but now after a little research (mysupermarket.co.uk) you will find the major supermarkets are better priced:{
#18
Does the Samsung take hard drives formatted in NTFS or FAT32 for playing MKVs etc? If it's FAT32 then you can't have MKVs larger than 4Gb (would hope for NTFS).
#19
I've had a Costco membership since 1993 (caused quite a stir at Glasgow when I renewed...) when Thurrock opened. The membership fee has hardly changed in that time and is good value if only for the peace of mind that you can return stuff with absolutely no quibble. The discounts have become less competitive though. I used to be absolutely sure I wouldn't find it cheaper (or as cheap) elsewhere - now that's far from guaranteed (thanks I guess to the internet and the buying power of big supermarkets)

That rules out a high percentage of members unfortunately! Very discriminatory shop if benefit scroungers aren't allowed! X)

Tempted... but was in Costco on Tuesday and its a bit of a drag to go on Xmas eve! Wonder it they have them at Thurrock..... Hmmmm..... Must resist!

Heat added...... Great price for a networkable / USB BluRay.


I know it was a joke but why label people unfortunate enough to have lost their jobs as scroungers really **** me off

I didnt label anyone who'd lost their job a scrounger.............. There are however lots of people who've not lost their jobs and have never worked.......and don't intend to for no other reason than they enjoy a meal ticket and lazy.


Because over 50% of the unemployed aren't particularly interested in working.

I know your pain - my OH was unemployed earlier this year and we tried and tried to get her a job. She's got a temp Christmas job at the moment but come January, we'll be back hunting.

She's got 2 degrees and a Masters, 15 years of experience but she can't even get an interview in the local supermarkets!

And that pi55ed me off even more that people see unemployment as a career.

I pay 37.00 with vat for my membership in cardiff and they give my wife one free.

They even gave me 20.00 store voucher for renewal next year, so it only cost me 17.00 and I am going to costco today, so will have a gander, I hate the place. I go in for one thing and come out with a trolley, got a 300.00 leather office chair the other week for 29.00 with vat.. Happy days.

I have a brother and sister who don't work.

My brother goes down the "clinically depressed" route - medical payments net him more than straight dole. He gets about £900 in the hand every month after all his bills have been paid.

He's a thieving druggie ****, left school with no qualifications, no wish to work and every time the authorities threaten to stop his money, he goes on a course that's meant to get him on the path to working, for all of a few weeks before dropping out.

The sister has 4 kids (3 different fathers, none of which are still around), lives in a £400k council house and gets paid to care for her ADHD son (i'm sure she pumps him full of Tartrazine and E numbers every time he needs to be reassessed) who's only a pain because he gets no attention. She has about £1500 a month pocket money (only food shopping to come out of that).

No need to work when the country treats you like that. Meanwhile, in the real world all of us suckers who do (or want to) work are paying for it.

It's like an episode of Jeremy Kyle. There are plenty of scroungers out there just like those 2.

Canada: £37 Costco membership? It seems that even the membership prices are not standard across all store.

I pay £25 + VAT (just under £30) for individual membership, with a free 2nd card (which I give to an aunty). It always pains me at renewal time to go in there and spend £30 and come out with nothing. We don't get a £20 voucher off our next shop though.

Dunno about USB..... but it can read NTFS on your network using "Allshare" which is a nice Samsung App I use on my Galaxy S...... In fact readin this has convinced me to go for it!

Thurrock here I come!


you can use NTFS formatted hard drive
i run my MKV files through mine

Just phoned the Watford branch, and they don't have any.

Awful blu-ray player that can't even play most DVDs correctly... Bought one a few months back and took it back within two days.

None in Thurrock either! They said they haven't sold this model for at least 3 months and was priced at over £100 when they did! Their Current cheapest BR player is £117 for a Panasonic

What store was this in OP?


It was in Bristol, I mentioned it earlier, but I'll amend the original post too

They had loads of stock there

Good deal - shame the battery on my car is dead! Now, I need to find a deal for a portable battery charger :) preferably the Clarke something-or-other 4000.

Ey?

Both £900 and £1200 a month AFTER all bills is a lot of money. I doubt many who rent or have a mortgage have anywhere near that after bills.

probably need to get a better job then, or work a lil harder.

Quit complaining about people who do nothing cause when it comes down to it they are not fulfilled in life.

Suggestion for OP: Write,

I am pretty sure Canada is referring to the Executive membership. It costs extra but you get 2% cashback in the form of a cheque at the end of your membership. Let's say the extra membership price is £15 a year and your cheque would come to £12, instead they refund th membership charge. If it's £40, you're quids in. The catch though is you need to keep rolling your membership to be able to redeem the cheque inshore as it's in the form of a voucher.

Yes, some things may be the same price at supermarkets but only if you shop around. The stuff I buy is only matchd occasionally by special offers at the likes of Tesco, etc. At least with Costco I can go whenever and get that cheap price. I have a car I value and so the big benefit for me is to park at Thurrock in a space that is bear on impossible for the next car to ding. I can have numerous sofa refills as I shop and leave with the worlds largest pizza for peanuts :)
