Still full price??

Went to the record shop today to buy ATYCLB as a birthday present for a friend. I was also buying a cd for myself. (not U2 for a change) But as always I flip through the U2 box (I might find a new album LOL) and I wonder what I always wonder when I do this. Will U2's albums never reduce in price?

I have never seen any on a sale. The only albums that has a slightly lower price is Boy and October and some times War. But the rest are always full price.
It's great in one way, it means they are popular and worth it but for me who wants to give the cd's for present it sucks...

What's the price situation where you live, the same thing?

Same in America. The first 3 albums are always the cheapest, but ATYCLB has been on a "Grammy sale" here, I think, but I am not 100% sure.

Same thing here Sula!!

Best Buy has always had resonable prices.

Come to Western Canada if you want cheap CD's. A&B sound usually has new releases at $14-15 Canadian. And the older U2 albums (up to UF) are $10 on sale while the rest go to $13-15 for a new CD during a sale. Used CD's here are about $10, plus GST, of course.

True, and they have a decent selection, too. I just discovered Best Buy a few months ago. Never bothered before that.

Up until 2 or 3 years ago Tower Records would occasionally have all U2 albums prior to The Joshua Tree on sale for $7.99 (now the sale price is $8.99).

they quite often feature in those "buy x cds for y" offers here (Ireland, also in UK) always think, that would be great, but I have them all! Can never find anything that I want in those things anymore.

I usually see Boy, October, War, and Unforgettable Fire for $11.98, and the rest are at least $13.98, sometimes as high as $16.98. And Sam Goody's prices are the worst. Every new album is $20. I usually go to the Wiz. They at least have sales on new albums. Last summer they had the first 4 albums for $7.98, and I grabbed them. Since then the prices have gone up $4.

I HATE Sam Goody. They have horrible prices and they have bad selection too.

Ive seen pop and JT here for 9.99.

ATYCLB is still generally full price altho often it is in a two for 25 or something like that.

I got a copy of Boy for 99p 5 years ago.



And a bootleg here is for 38.50. I think it's quite OK.

Circuit City is a good place as far as selection and prices, too. And they carry imports, which shocked me for a big chain store.

Tower Records has U2 albums on sale often.
Also for those with a Target in their area, they have all U2 albums in stock now at great prices.

Most U2 albums go on sale here at certain times.I saw ATYCLB for $20 the other day.
Although I actually worry and think "hmm why is that album so cheap? Its U2, it shouldnt be in the bargain bin!"

Remember, stores put things on sale that they're having trouble selling at the regular price.

Methinks they haven't had much trouble moving the U2 units off the shelves lately.
