"...not contain the best review Britannia Music Club would like to read, but it is only their fault it will end up in legal information that will help people escape the criminal tactics BMC have employed to get members. Theediscerning first joined Britannia many moons ago, when he was a youth, knee-high to a grasshopper, and incredibly naïve. This was so long ago, that Britannia were trading in both those new CD things, and music tapes (remember them?). ..." Read review

Britannia does not rule the waves

AdvantagesNone apparent

DisadvantagesToo numerous to mention

"...I responded to was for Britannia - Mail Order Videos and Music. The deal was to receive The Lord of the Rings on DVD or VHS on the day of release for £1.47. WOW! So I signed up - my husband is a hobbit in a previous life so what else could I do? It arrived 4 days after release and 4 days after I had gone to Sainsbury's and bought the video for £12.99 so my husband could watch it along with every other Tolkein freak. Not impressed. Then ..."

Britannia Can Kiss My Arse

AdvantagesSpecial offers

DisadvantagesExpensive, sharp marketing practices, duff phone system, poor choice

"...based sellers. My experience withthe Britannia Music Company should explain why I think this way. Britannia have been one of the premier catalogue-based music retailers for some time.

My Dreadful Experience

AdvantagesAppealing introductory offer.

DisadvantagesBad customer services, bad service, high prices, prone to mistakes with membership and enquiries. Up to 2-3 mailings a month. I could go on and on.

"...club. Another quick call to Britannia solved the oversight and sent me the correct members introduction booklet. Since my introduction I have been swamped with mail. I thought I would receive one magazine guide with recommended title order form each month. Now it seems I get two, one a general club magazine with recommended title and a single DVD letter (such as a new release) and recommendations every month. As the process to cancel recommended ..."

Let meee entertain you RIP OFF

AdvantagesThe leaflet is quite good NOT

DisadvantagesThe whole lot

"Britannia Music, well what can I say? Sounds like an offer too good to be true, in their leaflet they say “But one CD for £9.99 and get 5 free” – can this really be so? Well I joined Britannia in 1999, I was at University, money was scare and I loved music, so what more could I ask for? What an offer! I found one of their leaflets in a magazine which I had recently purchased, an apt place to put them to ensure people see them ..." Read review
