    I'm gonna wait til this comes out and see if my local BJ's Wholesale Club carries it. They do carry Trek films, and other TV boxed sets... and their prices on boxed sets tend to be 10%-15% lower than most e-tailers. I got The Godfather movie boxed set there for $64.99, while most e-tailers were in the $75 range.

    I'm assuming that the Canadian outfits will have the best prices, like on X-Files boxes, so I'm waiting till I see what they have to offer. I might pay $75 for these, but I'm not shelling out $100 or more.

    I checked out Future Shop and saw them list the price for season 1 as $129.99.... ouch! I only payed $109 for X-Files seaons and the MSRP was about the same.

    In my experience canadian sites are allways more expensive on paramount titles.

    A $29.95 (USD) Fox title might retail for $17-20 (USD) while a $29.95 (USD) Paramount title retails for $23.95 (USD).

    I've seen this at both DV-Depot and A&B Sound.

    Looks like this is going to settle into the high 90s everywhere. DVD Planet has it up for $97.99. At least I can use EBates with them and get 5% back.

    Well, then I'll pass. The series wasn't good enough to justify that pricetag. Maybe I'll pick one up cheaper on eBay in a few months; X-Files boxes go there for a song nowadays.

    In a previous post (I forget which one of the zillions of TNG threads I put it in), I mentioned that Best Buy's website showed that the TNG Box Set would go for $119.99, but includes a free CD-ROM for your PC that includes all the scripts and trailers that aren't included on the DVD set (all 7 season's worth).
    Well, Best Buy's website now shows that same package deal (Season 1 plus the CD-ROM) available for pre-order for just $99.99!!!
    Wow! [​IMG] I know where I'm buying it!
    Question: does anyone know what BB's policy is about pre-ordering for one price and then matching a first-week sale price at time of pickup? I'd hate to pay $99.99 for the pre-order and then see it at BB for, say, $89.99 as a first week loss leader special!!

    Speaking about Deep Discount DVD, as in the first post, has anyone had a problem ordering from them?

    I ordered a DBZ DVD from them a week ago, since it was so cheap and free shipping, I saved a good 8$'s. But, when five days passed with no confirmation order and no product in the mail, I sent them an email.

    They told me it was probably a glitch in their system, and I should order again, since nothing appeared in the Order Status Window. So, I did. Two days later, still no confirmation email that the order went through, but it IS in the Order Status Window, with the phraze 'open order' under it..

    Any ideas?

    David....I know Best Buy's in-store policy will refund 110% of the difference for movies, if you find a cheaper price within 30 days. I'm in BB so much I always go in on Sundays and get a little $$ back to go towards my next purchase. Not sure if BBonline will handle it the same way though.

    Don't know if they're any good, but northamericandvd.com has it for $87.99 ... better deals like this may emerge in time.
