Today only! UK DEALS with £10 discount

    So that’s Quadio bought. Now just need to tell Mrs B that we need a Bluray player………”

    …………………..and it worked, BluRay player arriving Wednesday!!!

  2. Tom says:

    Warning to all US shoppers – “8:33 PM EST was 1.33am” – I added a notation after my entry, that I discovered how great the time difference is, but it was whacked.

  3. gwynogue says:

    For non-UKers (such as myself), I suggest picking 1 or 2 big-ticket items rather than a lot of cheap items – the more items you order, the higher the postage cost and could swallow up that awesome discount! My Gaye boxes (snigger) were a good deal, but at 6 quid postage, my nit-picky side feels a bit cheated. Don’t get me wrong, 6 quid postage to Australia is an AMAZING deal, but I feel like the discount went mostly towards that rather than the actual items. Then again, money saved is money saved, so I shouldn’t whine really. No VAT plus a 10 quid discount and I’m STILL complaining?!?!?! I can’t help it, I’m an old grump, LOL. (Is 38 considered old?)

  4. Tom says:

    8:33 PM EST in the US – Earlier had business I couldn’t let go. Came back to arrange cart for 60 GBP Basket total. “The promotional code you entered has expired.”
    I give up! What time does pull up their sidewalks???? They have seen my last order.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      8:33 PM EST was 1.33am on 21st Jan in the UK. The offer was only for 20 Jan, so that’s why it didn’t work.

  5. Adrian says:

    Aha – sorted the issue. Hadn’t noticed that one of the items whilst delivered by Amazon and superficially seeming to be an Amazon product was actually sold by somebody else, and so not eligible.

  6. Adrian says:

    Aaargh – I’ve ordered 4 items which come to fifty-one and a bit quid and it tells me it won’t accept the code. (I’m a UK resident, so I don’t have to “worry” about VAT coming off).

  7. Richard John says:

    bought listen without prejudice boxset, bruce springsteen’s autobiography and Crowded House’s temple of low men, all for under £50. W00t!

  8. Stefan Krix says:

    Thanks again for the info, Paul! Worked fine outside the UK, too, and combined with the limited edition Bret Anderson vinyl info it made my day!

  9. 2wicky says:

    Many thanks, some items from my wishlist are on its way:
    the Skeletal Family box set, the 3-cd deluxe version of the first Spiritualized album ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re floating..’ and 2 of the Disco Recharge series have been ordered , total was around 51,– quid before the discount.

  10. Neil McL says:

    Got metal box for £21!!!! Was in a lightning deal at £31 and got the tenner off by ordering a couple of Blu Rays deal of the day I think best since that stones box and pink Floyd early years for £137

  11. florian m. kranz says:

    Arte, french-german TV, has a programme on Pet Sounds tonight.

  12. Jay Kranz says:

    of course my first attempt came to 49.99! ended up with a few cds together at 50.86 guess that will be ok…

  13. Mark says:

    The Lloyd Cole box set has gone up to £44.99!

  14. Guy says:

    Thanks Paul! Just cancelled my order for the single Bowie LPs and 3LP Live! and re-ordered them with £10 off. Cheers!

  15. John Oaks says:

    Just bought Chicago Quadio for 45 Pounds (around 75$ cad) compare to price at (list it at 190 $, 137$ from other seller). Great bargain at 5 pounds/blu ray…

  16. Al Duchaney says:

    The Doors (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)
    Decades Live… ’61 to ’94 ( 8 CD Deluxe Box Set) (Dylan)
    Folksinger Humdinger Volume 2: Just About As Good As It Gets (Dylan)

    Thanks for the tip! That’s 14 discs @ approx. $US 4.67 a piece!

  17. Gavin says:

    Nice one Paul – Brett Anderson vinyl box sorted on pre order at £59 so voucher dropped it to £49 which is not bad for 4 albums these days

  18. Jim Edwards says:

    Cheers Paul. I got the vinyl box of WCIBN? last year but what with the Lazarus triple coloured vinyl and cd, the Lazarus show and then bloody Christmas getting in the way today was my first opportunity to bring this home. Simply cannot wait. As always, thanks for everything Paul.

  19. David Cornyn says:

    I was thinking of ordering the first Lloyd Cole and the Commotions box set but I see it is out of stock at Amazon. Do you think they will still fulfill this if I order it? I’d hate to waste the tenner if they then cancelled the order!

  20. Bill Hammell says:

    Holy mother of pearl! Nice deals!!! WOW

    • Bill Hammell says:

      Ah, it’s a coupon code! I got so excited I hadn’t read it all. Still great though! Got my Chicago Quadio finally.

  21. Neil says:

    Gah – when I saw this mentioned here earlier I wasn’t paying enough attention and thought it was tied in with an SDE deal alert, and just now an item I was trying to time right to get at the lowest price has just gone back up (by more than ten pounds as well).

  22. Jan Marien says:

    Thank you very much, Paul!
    Just ordered the Crowded House-CD’s!
    Keep up the good work.
    This site is one of my favourites!
    I check it everyday day! :-)

  23. Mar Wolfgang says:

    It once happened to me that a pre-order went down in price on and the free shipping no longer applied. This might thus be the case.

  24. Peter Anderson says:

    My order still showing total of £40.02 despite part of it being pre-ordered items.

  25. Peter Anderson says:

    Brilliant timing – like others have just cancelled yesterday Bowie vinyl pre-order – reordered David Live, Diamonds Dogs, plus Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks vinyl along with a 99 pence add-on item bringing pre-discount total to £50.02!!! Thanks again Paul. Pete

  26. Gary says:

    So when do they apply the discount….say, if you order a mix of in stock and pre-order. I know they charge your credit card when items are shipped, but how do they apply the discount? Deduct the £10 across all items, or just those pre-ordered?

  27. Martin says:


    This was indeed worthwhile.

    Thanks to your notification and a heads-up on The Afterword website, I managed to get the Who’s My Generation super deluxe box set for “just”(!) £60…

  28. alan says:

    Be careful of pre-orders as last time they had this sort of offer my pre-order prices dropped the total to under £50 and the offer disappeared

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Really? Are you sure? Never heard of them cancelling a discount that has already been applied at checkout at a much later date.

      • alan says:

        Last time my orders totalled £54 before discount but the pre-order dropped price so that took it down to £46. My total order price ended up being £46 instead of the £44 I was expecting. I contacted Amazon about it and they explained it to me. It has to be £50 plus at time of dispatch.

  29. Philip Birtwistle says:

    So that’s Quadio bought. Now just need to tell Mrs B that we need a Bluray player………

  30. Jim Edwards says:

    Thanks Paul. I couldn’t love you any more if I tried. Just popped into HMV to buy WCIBN? Cd box set and they said I’d have to order, then saw your post and bought from Amazon. Bargain! Though disappointed they’d sold out of Sound and Vision picture disc. Bought that from Bowie store and after p&p came to nearly £19! Jesus wept! Not a bargain at all. £20 for a 7″ picture disc is bloody steep. Thanks for the heads up on the Amazon deal though, much appreciated Paul.

  31. gwynogue says:

    And a BIGTHANKS to you, Paul S! As I mentioned on another post, without you and SDE (and SDE readers!) I wouldn’t know about these Amazon deals/offers/etc.

    As much as I want “Who Can I…”, it’s still a bit too much for me right now, so I picked up the three Marvin Gaye boxes (PRE-discount total a smidge over 60 quid plus postage) instead. So that’s 24 (!!!) CDs for only $AUD85! I just hope the boxes don’t get squashed on the way to Australia.

  32. steveasian says:

    I live in US and the code didn’t work. Tried both, upper and lower case.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Make sure you are spending enough money because £50 spent outside EU is only £40 once VAT is deducted, therefore £10 short of target

  33. Michael khalsa says:

    How much Pet Sounds do people really need? I get that it’s amazing but really..

  34. Dave H says:

    Cheers Paul, just bought three blu-ray audio discs.

    Alan Alan Parsons: Project Tales Of Mystery and Imagination 40th Anniversary Edition
    Love And Rockets: Seventh Dream Of Teenage Heaven [Blu-ray]
    The Pixies: Doolittle [Blu-Ray]

    Total £52 minus £10 = £42 …………Happy Days!

  35. Simon Taylor says:

    So when I get home I need to cancel my Chris wood 4cd box pre-order then re-order to get price reduced to £83. Thanks will definitely do that later.

    Already have Dylan bootleg series vinyl pre-ordered at £47. That price is raising fast!

  36. Lee says:

    It excludes orders made with a gift card, but still works on orders that are made with a combination of gift card plus a cash top up. I already had a £20 voucher, so *that* + today’s discount all but paid for the Queen ‘On Air’ box! Yay!

  37. SimonP says:

    ^…two or three…

  38. SimonP says:

    Kinda tempted by the Chicago box, but I only really like the first two or albums. Talking of which, there’s a Steven Wilson remix of Chicago II out next week…

  39. HS says:

    Trying to order the forthcoming George Michael releases with a total of more than 52 pounds. When I enter BIGTHANKS I just get: The promotional code you entered cannot be applied to your purchase. ???

  40. Mark B. Hanson says:

    I tried pricing up the Bowie set for U.S. shipment, but it was only about $4 cheaper than the current US Amazon price of $91. So I’ll stick with Amazon US I guess.

  41. Richard says:

    Cheers for the heads up Paul , got some Blu-rays for £50.04, so I’m happy

  42. Dave thornhill says:

    Thanks Paul – just beat my previously best price on the Chris Wood set by enough to splurge on Priority delivery – happy!
    PS – that is to Australia, code worked fine for me!

  43. Andrew Stingel says:

    Fantastic! That’s Lou Reed’s RCA & Arista Album Collection on it’s way.

    Thanks so much for the tip :)

  44. Friso Pas says:

    Great tip! Bought for 50.40, so great deal. Thanks a lot, Paul.

  45. DaveM says:

    Thanks, nearly ordered this lot yesterday, so glad I waited.
    Ryley Walker’s Golden Songs that have been Sung (based on the SDE albums of 2016 list article)
    Flaming Lips Oczy Mlody
    Matthew E White & Flo Morrissey’s Gentlewoman, Ruby Man
    Joan Armatradings 2016 World Tour Live
    John Cales Fragments of a Rainy Season 2016 reissue
    Fantastic saving, especially as a Yorkshireman!

  46. Eric says:

    The Lloyd Cole & The Commotions set is down to £35.95 at the moment, so a good opportunity to put that towards the £50 threshold.

  47. Callage says:

    Boom! Thanks Paul.

    The discount also applies on upcoming releases too. Got the 2xCDs of;
    Deee-lite – World Clique
    FatboySlim – Better Living
    Larry Levan – Genius Of Time
    and ‘THE MEN IN THE GLASS BOOTH’ (3xCD) boxset

  48. Howie says:

    That’s yesterdays Bowie preorder deal cancelled and reordered for £10 cheaper (£66). Thanks for the info.

  49. Chris Squires says:

    Just bought the Immaculate Collection and Slider 2 x coloured, thanks for the heads up Paul….

  50. Rob Deighton says:

    I received the notification from amazon this morning and thought ‘nah there’s nothing i need’ but i then had a thought…. Cancelled my original Bowie Single LP’S reissue order from the other day , re-ordered them at the same pre-order price along with the upcoming Elbow CD so now technically getting the Elbow CD for free :) Happy Days.

    • ArrGee says:

      I did exactly the same in two orders (used my wife’s account for 2nd order) so saved £20 :-) Happy Days indeed.

      Only minor issue is my wife now has the autorip of Station To Station, and possibly Live Nassau and David Live.

  51. 80sfan says:

    It is NOT possible for orders outside UK, worthless!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      It isn’t just for people in the UK, others have confirmed it has worked outside UK.

      • Timo says:

        Confirmed: it works outside UK. I got a promotional email from Amazon UK this morning, and just used the code for the Crowded House bundle.

  52. Mark S says:

    Coincidentally the Dylan set is almost exactly £10 more expensive than it was last night. So no “real” saving in one regard.

  53. colm47 says:

    Hi Paul

    Big Thanks for that!!

    Is it the usual one item only discounted on this deal?
