Amazon.ca 50% off Fox 1st Season box sets

Right now Amazon.ca is running a special, 50% off the first season of fox box sets. The $10 shipping to the US kills most of the savings, but for X-Files season 1 it seems to bring the total price to about $60.80 shipped to the US, which is actually quite a deal.

Great price on Firefly (under $27 US). Too bad I'm up to by neck in boxed sets right now, or I'm jump on it!

^ Ummm, all you have to do is purchase it....they will charge convert and charge your credit card the equivalent USDs (or maybe they charge your CC Canadian $s and your credit card converts it...either way, its not an issue).

Anyone know if FOX does bilingual covers in Canada? I know they dont show up that way in the pics, but neither do the ones that I know are bilingual.

A quick search in Google.com for "currency changer" will give you about 100 options. I usually use this one:

Don't forget to add that some credit card companies add 1-2% fee for converting foreign currencies.

Just to remind fellow Canadians, all of these Fox boxsets are alot cheaper at Futureshop.ca or at there B&M's. I picked up 24 Season 1 for $28.99 Cdn Funds. But Futureshop only ships inside Canada so anybody else is out of luck and should consider these Amazon deals

Damn... you're right - Futurama is $19.99.

After the $5 coupon though, it only cost me 22 at amazon.ca, so I'm not going to cancel my order over $2

I bought X-Files seasons 2,3,4 (I believe it was 2-4, at least two of those three) and they appear to be exactly the same as american releases..

Check your past e-mails. Some of us got an e-mail from Amazon.ca back on June 30th with a $5gc to celebrate their ??? anniversary. I just tried mine (thinking that it was probably expired), but it worked! Helps take some of the sting off the shipping charges!

Bought Firefly today at Future Shop.

A few weeks ago when the sale originally started I picked up Futurama V1, Simpsons S1, Son of the Beach and King of the Hill.

Contemplating Dark Angel S1... but I know if I buy it, I'll wanna buy season 2, which I don't want to spent $50+ on.

Thanks for the info. I just picked up Futurama V1 and Simpsons S1 for CDN$59.45, or US$45.35. That's about ten bucks cheaper than the best online shipped price I could find (Digital Eyes = US$55.96). Gotta love a 50% off sale and a $5 coupon to boot!

I'm about to order "Firefly", but I'm hesitating because I didn't like Buffy or Angel.

I'm into darker stuff like Nip/Tuck, The Shield, Lexx and Six Feet Under, so will I enjoy firefly?

Well Angel is actually gets very dark as the seasons progress. Firefly also has it's dark moments.

But at $27, I don't see how you can go wrong with Firefly. Just look at the reviews for it on amazon.com.
