Best Buy: Star Trek, The Original Series -- Any Season, $39.99 each + Free Shipping
 
This week's Best Buy ad (week of 2/28) shows Season Three on sale, it turns out all three seasons are $39.99 each.

Free shipping or in-store pick (if available locally)...
...or wait it out a few days to see if Amazon price matches. ;)

And don't forget, it looks like Bing cashback may <strike>be up to 10% back or</strike> back down to 5% (?) at the moment to offset any sales tax.

This sale is supposed to last until March 27th, according to in-store shelf tags.

I hope Amazon price matches, gets me more Amazon Points and can use my Prime :)

Great deal on these. $36/each after Bing. I was planning on getting Season 3 and was very happy to see Season 2 for this price as well.

Sweet, I'd been waiting to add S2 & 3 to my collection for a decent price.

I was hoping S2 would also be on sale. Ordered S2 and S3 for in-store pickup with Bing. BB doesn't pack their DVD's well, so if you have the opportunity to pick-up instead of using the free shipping, I'd pick them up.

I had a $25 BB gift card that I was able to use for S2, so this was the deal I had been waiting for. Thanks for posting!

(I also picked up To Kill A King at $6.99 - the trailer looked good and at that price I thought it would be worth a shot.)

Darn - still no Amazon match. Looks like I have to give Best Buy my money. :(

With free shipping and the $4 that you'll get back from Bing, Best Buy would be the better deal unless your sales tax is over 10%.

Just did about $35 bucks of price adjustments through Best Buy.

These sets, quality wise, are fantastic. Getting them all for $120 is the steal of the year, for me.

Especially considering I unloaded my cherry-picked set of twofer episode DVD's for over a hundred bucks recently on eBay.

I was going to BB on lunch today so I did instore pickup on Season 1. But the copy they gave me, and the ones on the shelf did not have a slip cover. :gah:

I picked up all three seasons yesterday. They only had one copy of S1 and it had no slipcover. It's annoying not to have one when the other two do, but I'm really not going to complain too much at this price.

Amazon's dropped Season 2 down to $39.99. --Peter

Hmm.. it's been in the low $50s recently, and now this. I'm guessing these will settle around this price or that a new complete set is in the works.

Strange that amazon chose season 2, since it's not even the one in the BB ad. They'll probably match the rest eventually.

Really, at this point though, what could they add to it that would make it worthy of another re-release? Sure, there were a few small featurettes left off of the sets that were included in the original DVD season releases (which they could always just make available for viewing via BD-Live)....they also left off one of the "Starfleet Access" PiP tracks from an episode that the HD DVD release of Season 1 got....and I know there is still a demand for copies of the famous "blooper reels" that haven't been put on any of the ST: TOS releases yet....

Still, now that I have the complete series, remastered from the original negatives, in high definition with both the original and newly produced special effects, lossless audio, and boatloads of extras, I won't ever need to purchase it again and I can't think of anything they could offer to make me do so unless it came with a free actual starship! :D2:

Haha, I was actually going to say they would package the complete set in a model of the enterprise before I saw your last line. :) But hopefully for us, the "shrinkwrapped" 3 season set is their "complete collection".

Heh. I have the HD DVD of S1 that I got for $50 from Amazon.ca. Only watched the first episode of that. Come on Amazon, match all three seasons!

We still have until the end of the week.

I'm guessing amazon chose their lowest cost/highest stock season for the match since the BB ad only shows one season. But unless you hate best buy or something, it's not really worth it to wait given free shipping and 10% bing cashback right now. I bought all 3 and got notification of $12 back already.

I have no idea how to get the Bing cash back. :( Do I search Best Buy and take the top link or what?

Just log-in to your cashback account and click on Best Buy in the list of stores.
