Store : Asda Entertainment
"I shopped at ASDA online to buy a Nintendo Wii game that I had been after for a while, and saw that they had up to 80% off special offer running and I ended up buying 8 CD's and a DVD as well - and all for just £70! The best thing is that postage and packing is free and they send each product out individually so you don't have to wait for all the stock to be available to ship before they send out your products. I'd shopped with ASDA before so I could log in and all my details were there including credit card so all I had to do was input my card security number and I was away. The store is really easy to use and the shopping cart was simple to adjust the number of items I had added. All in all a great user experience and (without sounding too cheesy) the prices were great too. Even the non-sale items were cheaper than some of bigger name sites out there."
