Pc World, Is this fair....... Front page 2002

  User-312386 22:12 01 Aug 2003

Hi folks

Around christmas i paid £79.99p (full version) for front page 2002.

They are now advertising it on there website for £149.99 (inc vat)

Even dabs are advertising it at £135.12 (inc vat)

Why has it increased so much in price?

as if you got the upgrade version - that's certainly borne out by the price.

  User-312386 23:08 01 Aug 2003

no i did not FE, got the full version sitting right next to me

although i am using FP2003 right now

just wanted to air my views on this one

i could not have the upgrade anyways as i did not have FP2000

If you got the the full version for £79.99 around Xmas and it is now priced at £149.99 it could have been priced incorrectly and you got a bargain.

Some things are best kept quiet.

Take my word after experience with PC World their prices are high and their repair service is poor. The technicians are rookies and paniced(They weren't good enough)when I said the word remaster.

Not sure what pcwhizz means, but the moral of the story is to shop around. I agree that PC World's and DSG Group's prices are generally higher than other suppliers, but sometimes you can pick up a bargain. Probably incorrectly priced, so if you see what you want, buy it. I bought a 3DFX Voodoo 3500 card, (remember them), from Curries years ago that was priced lower than the 3000 version!

I just saw a PC World van speeding past my window - look out Madboy33, I think they're sending the heavy mob round, better eat the evidence!!! :-)

Its probably wrongly priced. I was there over a wk ago and they had Extigy at £99. When I went back to buy it couple of days later, it had gone up to £149, an outrageous price. Cheaper everywhere esle. Guess I missed a good bargain.
