This has to be a price mistake. I tried it anyways. THanks pensfan.

Wasn't there already a peanuts holiday collection? This set will not be released until aug 2004.

definitely a price mistake. when you search for the item, it says:
Your Price: $35.15, you save $14.82 (save 29.6%)

When you click on the item, the price is $11.79.

I've seen 2 versions. The 3 disc with Xmas, Halloween and the Thanksgiving specials, and one with 5 discs (and I couldnt tell you what the other 2 discs in the 5 discer set were). Perhaps that what this one is.

I ordered it, will wait and see if it really comes in in August as stated. The set is supposed to be 6 discs:

"Review for Peanuts - Classic Holiday Collection Gift Set DVD
--"...These six helpings of PEANUTS make a filling holiday feast." -- Rating: B+ - Entertainment Weekly 12/08/2000
IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN, A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING, and A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS.
Bonus Peanuts Feature: IT'S CHRISTMASTIME AGAIN, CHARLIE BROWN, THE MAYFLOWER VOYAGERS, and YOU'RE NOT ELECTED, CHARLIE BROWN"

I'll be surprised if it's six discs--they squeezed those six shows onto three discs on the original release!

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown / You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving / This is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers
A Charlie Brown Christmas / It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown

Based on the UPC, it's the 3-disc set.

Three classic Charlie Brown specials--"A Charlie Brown Christmas" (1965), "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" (1966), "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" (1973)--plus three bonus specials--"You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown" (1972), "The Mayflower Voyagers" (1988), "It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown" (1992).

Btw, did bestprices.com honor their past price mistakes?

Click on the green "Buy Now" tab next to the picture.

Given the 8/24/04 "release date", maybe it's a price drop?

They honored the John Wayne 3 pack misprice just a few weeks ago. Definitely give it a go!

This is the same set as previously released, it seems. Looks like a price drop.

Great great set for $12!

Never heard of the 5-disc version before. What's on the extra two DVDs?

Yeah, they're pretty good. I stopped using them for my anime pre-orders since shipping on multiple items will kill any discount you get. For this one item, it should be fine tho.

Where does it mention that it might be a 5 disc version? I can only see it listing what eau described.

Also, the three titles that make up this collection are scheduled for a price drop on 8/24 according to Michael's Movie Mayhem (mcarver here) list.

His site doesn't specify but list price is $19.99 each currently so probably $14.99 though that is just a guess.

Bestprices.com has pretty bad customer service. I don't think they've ever honored a misprice and I don't recall them ever being very gracious about it either. The couple of times that I ordered regular items from them, they lied about having shipped the items and played a couple of other evasive games. My only good experience with them was long ago, my first order, for a bunch of reasonably priced DVHS tapes.
