Just beat me to posting. Doesn't look like they ship until 4/22, but a good deal.

Also, even though it says DVD's in the title, this is the price for the BluRay seasons 2 and 3.

Why is Season 1 so much more expensive on this site?

This is a great price for Season 2 and 3. I can't imagine they will ever get much cheaper than this.

Thanks OP! I already own the remastered sets (with new special effects) on standard dvd, but this deal seems to good to pass up.... so I am in for seasons 2 and 3... would have grabbed season 1 if it were offered at this price, too... guess i will sell my standard sets to offset the upgrade price a little bit.... thanks again for posting this, I never would have found this deal otherwise!

Plus $6.95 shipping.

I used a code (ST1023) that I THOUGHT removed shipping when I tested a check-out and it showed up as $0.00. But I screwed around and added and removed tons of things. When I finally went to check out again the shipping was showing up.

There is free shipping if you order both Season 2 and Season 3.

Add one of these seasons to your shopping cart... then go view your cart. There will be a green box that says "Wait! Add $10.01 more to your order to receive free shipping & handling." Do a print-screen on this page and save it into a word document. Then add the other season to your order and complete the check-out process.

It will show $6.95 shipping charges..... but I called customer service and they told me they would refund the shipping charges to me, I just need to call them back about 30 minutes after I place the order (to give it enough time to show up in their system). I have the screen capture that I can email to them in case they don't follow through like the customer service rep said they would.

Figures! I just bought the whole set from a closing Ultimate Electronics store for $140 (+ tax).

I wasn't going to because I never watch the original SD's I have and I would still be missing S1. But I decided to jump in and get them when I found the lowest prices on half.com are $50 for used ones.

It's a glitch. I asked before I ordered too, and was told the same thing, and then asked afterward and the CSR told me that it was a glitch, there was nothing they could do, and they were very sorry for misleading me.

Not the story I was told. I placed my order and then called and the CSR said I would get a refund of the shipping charges. So I guess I will just have to wait and see if it really happens. But I have the screen shot that shows the "Wait! Add $10.01 to your order to receive free S&H", so I can always email this to them if they don't keep their word.

Maybe I'll call in too. I only emailed.

Yeah, the code doesn't work. It was an error. I readded items and it showed zero shipping, except for the last page of checkout.
