click here at the bottom left of the page it says it's a secure website but there's no little padlock or https. Is it really OK for credit card details? Lovely prices but.........

I usually don't see the padlock until prompted for Credit card details. Try and if prompted for Credit Card details on a non-secure page then don't use it.

I've always found play.com, dvd.co.uk or mx2.co.uk to be among the cheapest.

Temptation -a hideously expensive music DVD I've been drooling over for £13.58. Will take PaulB2005's advice.

I think that you should find the site is secure via final payment procedure,when the padlock and https will appear. If you check,the site information doe's state that they use GeoTrust/Protx/HSBC banking procedures and encryption.

unless and until you decide to make a purchase. At the stage where you'll be asked for credit card details you'll be transferred to an https session, and the padlock will appear in your browser.

This has made me think of one thing. Why is a Secure Session not used when you set up your account especialy when setting up the username and password?

Dabs - do

Play.com - do

ScrewFixDirect - do

SelectCheaper - doesn't

Doesn't this make it easier (not easy) for your UserName and Password to be picked up (i believe the word is "sniffed"?)
