Not for me

None

See op (or the law books)

The title of this op will prove to you at a glance that it will 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...

None apparent

Too numerous to mention

I am a member of Mypoints - for better or for worse - I haven't got enough points to be thrilled yet. One offer of theirs that 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...

“Britannia Can Kiss My Arse”

Expensive, sharp marketing practices, duff phone s...

I can honestly say I have now found a branch of e-commerce which has proven to be more than just a fancy method of mail order. When you’re buying a CD the online services have really become head and shoulders above the more "traditional" catalogue based sellers. My experience withthe...

The leaflet is quite good NOT

The 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...

Appealing introductory offer.

Bad customer services, bad service, high prices, p...

I am not one to easily call something an absolute failure, I am willing to accept a degree of human error and try to remember that I could make similar mistakes. But this organisation just seems to be out purposely to disappoint people. This is the worse company I have ever had dealings with...

When you see the glossy adverts on the back of magazines, you are told what a great deal you will get on buying music if you sign up with Britannia. I signed up almost two years ago and chose 5 CDs, got 1 free (which I didn't like, but never mind) and only paid for one. The problem from there...

“Avoid Them At All Costs”

published 28/09/2001

First CDs are cheap

Bad for your blood pressure. inept service

I am sure we have all received the junk mail before now. A promotional leaflet or booklet for the Britannia Music Club regularly seems to fall on the doormat. I had always resisted the temptation before but useless parent that I am allowed myself to be persuaded by my son that it would be a good...

bargain... of sorts

will cost you much much more in postage

I read a letter to the editor in a paper over Christmas suggesting that someone should sign up Osama Bin Laden to Readers Digest as they were bound to find him. The same I think could be said of Britannia. Ever conscious of just how blasted expensive Christmas is, and also buying CDs on a pretty...

Well I admit it. I got mugged. Suckered by the promotional material from Britannia that you find in just about every magazine and daily newspaper. "Buy 4 DVD's for the price of 1!!", "4 DVDs for only 3.99 each!!" So I went ahead and joined. What an idiot I am. Just in case some don't understand...

“Britannia music not for me”

Cheap CDs at beginning.

You become tied in, and problems with your account...

I have encountered various problems with Britannia music mail order club. The deal to join up was fantastic! 4 CDs for about a tenner! I chose 4 CDs that I had always wanted, but not wanted them enough to go to HMV and fork out 11 quid each for. This seemed great to me, and all I had to do in...

“Massive Savings”

A Massive saving

Recommended recordings

Dear Reader... I signed up for Britannia over the Internet and received my 6 CD's within the week. So I received 6 CD's for the price of 1. So if you work it out, I paid £12 for £72 pounds worth of goods. I soon got very interested in music and bought quite a few more. I bought 3 CDs, one CD at...

“Do not state what they mean”

published 26/12/2000

none at all

terrible service, customer service no use

I found Britannia to be absolutely pathetic service. I have been a member of this club for a while and decided to order some CDs for Christmas presents out of Britannia. For around three months before Christmas, in each of the catalogues I received, there was a warning notice stating that to...

“Nothing special”

published 20/04/2001

Can get some good bargains

Not enough price saving or choice

Britannia Music's standard introductory offer is featured in many magazine adverts and appears extremely attractive. The mail order record retailer generally offers four CD's of your choice for about a tenner (They do vary the detail slightly, but it's always in these sort of terms). Now clearly...

Super

Great selection, bonus prices all time

Have to wait 1 to 2 weeks for CDs

There's been a lot of opinions written about Britannia, as many of them complimentary as not. So I thought I would add mine. I have been a member of Britannia about 4 times over the years, in both regular music and classical music clubs. Of course the attraction is the initial 5 albums for the...

“Long Term Savings”

Shop from home, quite a few freebies

Britannia Music is a mail order club for the purchasing of CD's. The initial attraction to join is a large saving. Offers vary slightly from time to time, but the usual format is multiple purchases for a greatly reduced price. Choose 6 CD's from a selection of around 150. For this first purchase...
