Bet you did not know that it’s often cheaper to buy albums on CD than via Internet download?
Bargain hunting website Tunechecker.com aids music fans at finding the best deal available by returning prices from 14 shops including Amazon and iTunes. Simply enter the name of the album or single and the site’s software searches and returns with your pricing and vendor options. The Site even has a list of Mp3′s which are legally available for free download on the web.
Despite the additional cost of manufacturing the CD and Sleeve artwork it will come as a surprise that eight of the current top 40 UK albums can be purchased on CD for a lower price than they can be legally downloaded
A spokesman for tunechecker.com said: “MP3s often win but downloading isn’t always cheaper.”
As this current example shows the buying hard copies can still save you money: You can buy the Very Best of Fleetwood Mac on CD – currently number 35 in the charts – for 4.43 pounds including delivery.
That is 2.54 pounds less than the cheapest download price currently available.
