Just been in to my local PC world and they had .mac which is the old name for mobile me but the exact same product down from £69 to 39.97 but it had a red sticker on which meant at the till the price was reduced by 50% to 19.96!!

This is instore only as far as I can see as website show price before the 50% discount.

what store was it?

Was the Ipswich store

Had plenty at New Oscott. Waste of money at £1, though, unless you really need a me.com email address. Otherwise, gmail does IMAP and works with Macs more reliably than Mobileme.

Anyway, this properly belongs ] in this thread

Bought one for myself at work today, bargain if you're MobileMe subscription is coming up for renewal. Also managed to check stock around the country, most stores in the North have just 1 copy left. If you would like to know if you're local store has stock, drop me a PM and I can check.

just been to PC world in Bournemouth - no joy, they had it for £39.97 but refused the extra 50% off. They checked with a manager who states Apple products are never reduced !!!!

Its this lack of consistency across their stores which really annoys me about PCW

I went to PCW in Merry Hill, West Mids, and it was priced at £69.00 with no clearance stickers on and scanned at £39.97. Went to PCW in Wednesbury and they had clearance labels on and were priced at £39.97 (advertising 40% off). I then asked staff member (a Windows Guru of all people :roll:) and advised that other stores were selling them for £19.96; he spoke to the manager and then manager discounted it down to £19.96.

Yeah I had to get the manager to discount mine, took a while but well worth it as my subscription was about to run out!!

surely there must be a directive from up high to instruct the stores which products are to be discounted ? I will have a look in another store tomorrow and try my luck there. I know even at £39 its cheaper than Apple, but I was a little worried as I wont need this for another few months and the dates on the boxes were April 2008.

Used mine today and there was no problem, contacted apple and they said that the activation codes are still the same, so they will be fine as its just the packaging that has changed

You have 9 months from purchase date to activate your account. That is the only stipulation.

Same problems here. Asked three times - manage adamant that there was no further discount. In the end, I had to scour the store to find one of their signs and take it to the manager to point out how the discount worked.

Finally got him to take the 50% off!
