I need a cheap "Harry Potter 4" HD DVD

I need the help of you fine people. I've just found out that I have the weekend off work and as a result am looking to buy "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" on HD DVD cheap-ish.

I've seen it online for £17.99 but as I need it for the weekend, it's too late to order it (I won't receive it 'till Monday at the earliest, which is too late for me as I'm back at work!)

So I'm asking all you fine people if you have seen it going for roughly the same price instore anywhere. Places like HMV, Virgin, ADSA, ect. That way I can just go any buy it and watch it on the same day rather than having to wait for it to be delivered.

I already own "Harry Potter 4" on regular DVD, so I don't want to spend too much, but am willing to go to about £19.99. So if anyone has knows of a place that is selling them over the counter please let me know.

I could do it myself, but due to very long shifts at work (where I'm working upto 14 hours a day) I can't.

Thank you!

Are Asda the only place selling HD DVD's on the street?

I didn't see any in Virgin or HMV the other day and find it strange a food retailer gets them but a Video and game specialist doesn't??

My local GameStation (Bracknell) stock HD-DVDs.

For those that are interested I have finally got hold of "Harry Potter 4" on HD DVD for £19.93 from Asda-Walmart in Watford.

It seems somewhat of an odd price (£19.93?), but it's cheaper than the in-store HMV price (£24.99). Exactly how the people who own HMV think they have the right to charge so much is beyond me.

So anyway, thanks for the posts and if anyone in interested in cheap HD DVD's try phoning a few Asda stores for prices, etc.

This is worth knowing because nobody with an HD-DVD should let HMV get away with charging top dollar for their discs. After they've gathered enough dust on their shelves, we should be able to get some good knock-down price discs.

Bit harsh on HMV, they possibly want to make some money and based on ASDA's price..they possibly don't.

Shop around by all means, but remember retailers are not a public service, they have to make money

You can now expect a call from no. 10 Downing Street to write an article on the wonderful years of Tony Blair, and how he possibly went to Iraq to help a load of people...

Thanks, I like a challenge....but not one that size...

My point is that that customers don't know the margins that retailers get on their produts and therfore assume that said retailer is a "rip off"

Loss leading is a good promo tool although medium term it is not viable, one supermarkt lost £1.6 million selling one DVD title in 2006, good for customers maybe, good for business...maybe not.
