Next cheapest is £8.89 at TheHut, but obviously still doesn't beat this!

Ordered one for me, one for dad for xmas! Cheers.

(Poo, forgot to go through Quidco!)

Great price for this barneybear Thanks

That is an unbelievable price. I thought I got a bargain at £7.99 last year
If you have an SACD player you will be blown away, truly a reference disc.
If not the CD layer sounds great anyway and the packaging is really nice.

Excellent value for money! I got this for Christmas last year and it rarely goes down in price!

Link isn't working for me
Even the direct link via the Woolworths search function

True, link not working (using Safari browser).

Not working here either

Found the product via the home page and pressed 'buy' - got this:

£8.89 delivered from Amazon Jersey too


Edit: think this offer has now expired as it ]was posted on MSE 12 hours before being posted here...looks like they've snapped them all up

Edit2: I think you might still find the odd copy in store at this price. I'm sure my local store had them in at the weekend

TSK - my order status has changed to "Back Order or Pre-release".

:x

LoL, surprise surprise. Another £2.97 Woolworths item that probably won't be honoured.

Alas, same problem

Quite annoying - would make a great present.

Strangely enough I had a check in my local store over lunch (despite already owning it). Couldn't see it, but then it really is a chore navigating Woolworths and their excessive and randomly placed sale racks

Yep, I looked in my local store too (large city centre branch) - no sale items, it's all either chart or overpriced 3-for-2 CDs at the moment.

my order cancelled too - what a sham - this is the first time i have ordered from Woolworths. Does this happen regularly?

Has anyone noticed recently the large amount of mis-prices and non-honoured sales?
One might say this is a way of free advertising to get people to their respective websites for the Christmas, and pre-Christmas sales...one might say.
I'm getting a bit fed up with it and I might just start voting mis-prices as cold because we're just not going to get them.

As the person who posted this on MSE yesterday, I've received my Dispatch Email today.

Surely it's not just me who's got the goods?! :shock:

Doesn't strike me as the kind of product that anyone at Woolworths would consider using as a covert web traffic booster. Though I agree there is evidently a suspicious misprice scandal doing the rounds on the net :x

Just back from my local woolies store and guess what? Yes they have them in stock!

According to Woolies chart it is number 11 in the charts this week (Don't know which charts - I suspect it's Woolies own)

However, this product is over twice the price in-store at £5.97

Both my copies have been cancelled also. :x

Mine too!!

£5.97 instore is still a great price for this on CD - I paid over £2 for a download from the dodgy Russians, so this is a great price. Shame it's not available for £2.97 though

It seems that the posted link comes to a blank screen. When I take the product ID code from the web address (50427317) and do a search from thier main page (]http//ww…uk/) I get a hit in the search for the CD at the price quoted in the deal. When I then click on find out more or the item itself I get the blank page again, if I click on buy I am told "The product War Of The Worlds (Coll. Edition) [SACD/CD Hybrid] is not available to buy yet. Check back later".

The deal would be for 83% off - which would be great - if it were real.

Oh it was real (in terms of the link working before) but it stopped working about an hour after this thread was started.

Can someone mark this Expired please?

What a mess...now apparently only available as a digital download for £16.99! :shock:

Item number 50638195, but adds to basket at just £7.99 :roll:

Whilst the physical item is available in their stores for £5.97

[SIZE=2]"No one would have believed" Woolies ever sold it for £2.97 :-D [/SIZE]
