SIMPSONS WORLD 20-season episode guide $28.95 on B&N bargain tables

Hey everyone, I just stumbled on the SIMPSONS WORLD 20-season episode guide at Barnes & Noble. It was originally $150 (last year), but it just appeared on the bargain tables for $28.95. Add a coupon (there are a couple floating around--check the DVD Bargains subforum), and you can get it for around $20.

Just called my two local stores, they don't have it.

If anyone can pick one up for me and would be willing to ship it it would mean a great deal to me.

I have it and it is heavy as hell. I can only imagine it would cost almost as much as the price just to ship it. I can look tomorrow when I go in the store and see how much it is. How much would you be willing to go for shipping? I'm guess that the shipping will be between 15-20 bucks on it.

The shipping wouldn't be that bad if you ship it media since it's a book. I'd pay up to $10 shipping, it shouldn't be much more than that or so. I'd estimate it at around $7 at the most though. Even doing it by flat rate you could do it for $10 I believe it if would fit in the middle sized box. If you do check, let me know.

I'll see if my local store has a copy and snag one. After I get it and figure out the shipping you can paypal me the money. I'll let you know tomorrow if I find a copy.

Heads up--there's a 25%-off coupon available for B&N right now.

I have a copy of the coupon and will use it if I can find a copy.

Costco has this for about $30 as well.

Anyone else willing to help out and find a copy for Brent L? I looked around here in Tulsa and they no longer have any copies in the store and we don't have Costco (unfortunately) in these parts. This land is Sam's Land.

As much as I still enjoy the Simpsons, I just want it to end at, say, Season 25, so they can release complete editions of books like this. Plus, 25 is a good number to end at.

Thanks for trying though, it was good talking to you earlier today.

If anyone else is willing to grab one for me you can apparently check the stock of your local stores here:

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/simp...simpsons+world

The closest one with it in stock to me is over 100 miles away in Atlanta.

No problem! I will keep my eyes open as you never know if their inventory is off. I'll let you know if I can snag a copy.

Man, I'm sorry I missed this deal. No stock at B&N anywhere near me in Northern VA/DC, according to the website. I checked our local Costco yesterday and nothing there either. There's one more Costco I can check today.

How do I look up an item's stock at Costco? Is it similar to the B&N link above?

I don't think there's a way to do that at Costco through the website. I'm just going to the stores that are in my area to check.

Struck out at the other Costco. I'm not fighting the last-minute Christmas shoppers over the long weekend, so I'll just have to keep my eyes open. I didn't even know this book existed until I saw this thread a couple of days ago. D'oh!

I'll check out Costco for this tommorow. Heads up to the OP. I have a close friend who is stationed overseas and his birthday is coming up soon.

I'd be interested to hear from anyone who actually finds one of these at a Costco, because there are others in my area but I'm 0 for 2 and not inclined to keep looking unless I feel like there's a decent chance of success. I did see multiple copies of the 3-volume complete Calvin and Hobbes set at both stores, but at $90 it's still too pricey for me.

Hey Brent, are you still looking? I snagged an extra copy if you would like it. PM me and we can work out the details.

If Brent already found one, I'd be happy to take the extra off your hands.

I spoke with Brent earlier today and he said he was going to contact you. Did he get in touch with you yet? This is why I like this forum as there are people here that will look out for each other when none of us owe anything to one another.

Hey there, and thanks. I sent you a PM way earlier today. Let me know if you got it.

Yeah, thanks for the heads up. I sent him a PM here just an hour or two after you called me. You're a good man!

Any luck finding it in the Twin Cities? I would really enjoy having a copy of this, thanks.
