    Through Sept. 27, Columbia House is offering a 40% off all box sets sales special, which really isn't all that special when you consider it's 40% off their own original prices. However, if you're a current member with FunCash in your account (even if it's just $1), the majority of box sets show up in the FunCash cart as being 55% off, i.e. the Deep Space Nine and Voyager season sets are $58.48 each, the James Bond box sets 1 and 3 are $56.23 each, Nip/Tuck season one is $26.98, and so forth.

    Now CH charges a ton for shipping out box sets ($7.99 for one), but they have a $15 cap on shipping so buying multiple box sets would be the way to go. Like I said, most box sets check out at 55% off, but some don't for whatever reason (i.e. James Bond box set 2).

    I'm actually having a difficult time finding anything I want. The sale is great, but I pretty much have all the box sets I want and CH doesn't carry the other stuff I want like the later Highlander seasons or Millennium. And if I only get one or two sets, their overpriced shipping kills any savings.

    Looks like they fixed their bug. I guess that just saved me a ton of money since I won't be buying any box sets from them.
