See text.

I joined Britannia video club after being tempted by the "amazing" offer. It consisted of 4 video's free for joining up with them as long as I purchased 4 video's over the next two years. As I am a frequent movie watcher I thought this offer was great but little was I aware of the hidden catches...

Good Prices if you buy lots of items

Recommended title is a pain, few items in magazine

Britannia Music and Video Club, a name that strikes fear into the hearts of many shoppers and sends Watchdog into a frenzy, it seems. So why exactly did I try them out? Well, it all started with a phone call. Once upon a Time ---------------------- A polite young lady (aren’t they all when...

Not many people rate it all that well

I have been a member of Britannia Music club now for two years and have never found such a fantastic and easy way to shop for my music. I have read many reviews about Britannia on this site and most people don’t rate them all that well, most people feel they are too expensive. This part I...

I joined Britannia a few years ago and it was trouble from the outset. The initail cd offer had attracted me but like everything in this world if it looks to good to be true then it probably is and this is the case with Britannia. OK so you have to purchase 6 cd's over two years (three each year)...

“a gamble worth taking”

published 16/10/2001

great introductory offer

but they bleed you dry after that

Britannia – a name alsmot synonymos with junk mail, unwanted orders and rip-off prices. And I knew all of this before I joined. So, you may think, why on earth did I bother? Well, as you’ll all be aware I’m sure, they do these wonderful offers whereby you buy one DVD and get a...

This company have got a good strategy going. The offer of buying 1 CD and getting 4 free was just to tempting for me, so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm sure you've heard of them as they put their leaftets in every magazine and newspaper known to man. As I mentioned, the introductory offer is...

In the past I have been a member of Britannia, Music and Computer club, well basicly they are nothing but CON-MERCHANTS. The way they get you hooked in is by offering you a tremendous bargain, as in lets say the Music CD`s, they`ll offer you 6 for the price of one. You send for these thinking WOW...

difficult to cancel subscription

I have been a member of Britannia for a year now, I was attracted like man people buy the offer of 5 CD’s for £5, well once I got my 5 favourite CD’s I didn’t have the heart to send them back. It meant I kept my membership and so I had to buy a CD ever month for a year at £11.99...

“the expensive music club”

published 25/12/2000

Large selection

Too expensive

I joined Britannia back in April 1999. What a mistake! I decided to take up their offer of buying 4 CD's for £12.99. I joined, knowing I would have to make six regular purchases in two years. When I got my first catalogue I was shocked. Their regular priced CD's were £14.99! Even then, they...

expensive and send you albums you do not want

i saw a flyer to join up with britannia music club, and at the time they had a offer on where you buy one album and get 3 free. i thought this was really good so joined up and just paid £13.99 for one album. You had to buy at least 4 albums in your first year, which i thought fair enough. You get...

I have been a member of Britannia Music Club for many years and have always received good service from them. On the rare occasions when there has been a slip-up it has been put right quite quickly and postage has been refunded. Having bought hundreds of classical CDs, mostly at very reasonable prices, I am now an Elite Gold member and receive 10% off everything I buy, as well as free postage. Furthermore, I do not have to worry about Records of the Month as they are are no longer sent. Obviously, the more you buy, the greater the benefits, but I can truly say that I have discovered a world of wonderful, little known music, such as 20th century British composers, Zemlinsky, Suk, Enescu, Arvo Part, Nielsen, Reinecke, Rubinstein and Rott, which I would probably never have investigated were it not for the fact that they were recommended in the magazine and were offered at very attractive prices.

Everything About Them

This is a warning to everyone even thinking about joining this Music and video club. Don't! I joined Britannia Music Ltd or BClub as they now like to be called when I saw an online offer. I think everyone has seen them around the internet and they are hard not to click on. The offfer says you buy...

I have been a customer of Britannia for many years and althouhg the service had been pricey but OK until April this year. In February I had ordered a CD and was told in April out of stock. I phoned them in July as their website was temporally out of order and was told again the CD was out of stock. At the same time I ordered another CD. We are now in October and neither of the CDs have turned up. I can't check my order status on their website because it doesn't exist anymore. A total waste of time indeed.
