It's silly how the stores are falling over each other to sell… - Tachyon — LiveJournal

I guess Kwik Save are relying on making more than £3 from other sales while people are in their shop.
Amazon, who were selling it at £8.99, plus postage, are probably relying on just shipping enough of them that the £1.34 profit adds up. IIRC, they mentioned on one of the news programmes last night that they were shipping 1.5 million copies out today - I don't know if that's just the UK, or Amazon worldwide, though.
Amazon is where I got mine from and it arrived safe and sound this morning.

*nods* My wife's arrived at around 8am - although she nearly didn't get it, since we were in bed and I considered ignoring the door buzzer.
I suspect she would've gone out and got a copy at midnight if my mother hadn't ordered it for her from Amazon months ago.
