Don't lock yourself into the box sets. Sometimes the individuals are cheaper especially if the box set is new. Unless of course the person ONLY wants the box set, though that seems odd since the show is still going.

Walmart.com and gohastings.com also have pretty good new retail prices.

Your best bet instead of buying the boxed set is just to buy each season individually on Amazon.com

I added up the prices of each DVD for seasons 1-4 and it'll come to $90.96 + tax.

Whereas the actual seasons 1-4 boxed set on Amazon = $139.99 + tax

Costco is pretty good for boxed sets in Canada. They do have individual seasons as well.

Ebay.

Just got the EXACT thing (you probably read it from my other thread ) from there an hour ago.

58.00 total, free shipping. Brand new, unopened box set. Your not going to find a better deal. And no its not a garbage pirated copy.

Comes out to what 14 bucks a season?

Or you can spend 140 bucks on Amazon

Talk about a site to get scammed by...


Anyway, here is an ebay link: http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Big-Bang-The...d=p3286.c0.m14

Right now the cheapest is $41, but that will probably go up to $61 by the time the auction ends (8 hours). The sellers are all legit, all have 100% positive reviews and have sold thousands of things to customers so you dont need to worry. Ebay is very good and gets a bad rap on here for some reason.
