** As if CD-WOW were not already offering value for money they have a sale on... Many titles are being sold off for as little as £3.99 with loads of current, main stream, names at £6.99. Remember this includes p&p and I believe that this is fantastic value and not to be missed... I for one will be getting some Birthday presents in early!!
I seldom rave about any retail, online, shop but this one has served me, and my friends, with constant good service and value for money. I therefor recommend my new friends, here at dooyoo, to take a look now.
As a father of three teenage kids I have noticed the price of CDs, and the difficulty in finding some of the more “odd” groups too…
My kids seem to like many of the less than "sweet looking" groups or "singers" and often trying to find the CD they want has been difficult. Even when we do find them they are regularly around £13 - £14, oh how I wish vinyl was still around.... I seem to recall a price of about 5/- (or 25p) for the last one I bought..... Maybe I am getting too old???
Anyway I was surfing away one Sunday afternoon … as you do… when I came across this site,
CD-WOW and was shocked to see the price lists. Most CDs at £8.99 and some, less well known, at as little as £3.99, and that included p&p. I dragged the wife and kids to the screen, asked for their opinions as to the price, and stock list, if I tell you it cost me more than £50 there and then you can see it must have been okay.
The list of CDs was substantial and every CD we had walked miles to find, often without luck, was there and, as I say, a lot cheaper and with no walking involved.
I have used the net to buy items before and didn’t really have too much concern about giving y credit card details and when I saw they used a world wide clearing company anyway was very happy
to place the order.
Inside 10 minutes I had an e-mail confirming the order, another from the clearing company confirming they had been informed of the sale, and another letting me know that no payment would be made until the order was dispatched. Not many minutes later I had yet another mail laying out delivery times, and remember being very surprised to see 3 - 5 days only.
In fact the CDs all turned up, individually packed in boxes that fit through the letter box, inside the delivery time given, all safe and sound and all as advertised. Now I have to listen to the "music", at levels high enough to give you a nose bleed, but I do have three happy kids... oh and a very happy wife too... I slipped another order off for 2 "mainstream" pop discs to add to her Christmas gifts.
I have, since first finding and using this site, recommended it to several family and friends, many who have used it and found the same level of service.
I know this seems all too perfect but, as yet, that is what CD-WOW has been. I have no complaints at all.. An easy to use site with a good list of varied music, and one of the few that actually give the service they charm you with. They also have an order tracking area, and returns section too, but I have not had cause to use it as yet. You can even pre-order too.
All in all I have no problems at all in recommending, and praising, this site to anyone, and I am still using it often.
