WOAH! Friends Season 8 at Amazon - $19.01!

I still have to keep rechecking this to make myself believe it's true. It looks like a misprice - all of a sudden the list price is showing as $29.24 (the old selling price, which was 35% of the MSRP), 35% off becomes $19.01 ($17.11 with STL). I got an order in as soon as I could (and had to ADD something to it to qualify for free shipping, that's a switch!), we'll see what happens!

Woohoo! GREAT price.

At that price, I didn't even bother with the free shipping; it only came to $21.99.

Thanks for posting this!

Just ordered one along with the The Essential Spider-Man Volume 1. We'll see what happens.

Is the essential spider-man a DVD or the comic book?

You're probably right that this is a misprice, and you probably ruined it for yourself by posting it. As soon as someone from FW sees this, it's all over. If Amazon catches on before the release date, they won't honor that price and will make you verify the "correct" price before shipping it. I would highly doubt this price goes to November.

Kind of a catch 22 with misprices at Amazon. You want to share the good deal like anyone would, but as soon as you do you can expect not to get that deal.

Well if Amazon decides it was an error and doesn't want to honor it, I'll be out either way. At least this isn't one of those cases where the price shows to be $0.00. They're not LITERALLY giving them away at this price.

I'll be happy to pay the correct $26 STL price that I always pay for these seasons if that's what happens. It's more exciting to share in the fun and see what they do than to just cheer to myself on the inside about the lucky deal that I secretly got.

If you were going to buy it anyways, well of course try to get in on it. But in the case where you run across a misprice on something you were only considering, you might see if you could get in on the deal first, and if it went through then post it.

I don't have any of the seasons and that price tempted me, but I just don't see it going through. Hopefully I'll be wrong so next time when it's something I really want I'll have more hope.

Well I certainly don't expect it to be $19 through November when it actually gets released!

Seems like they caught the mistake. I am not seeing it on the site when I do a search.

Of course maybe I am just being dumb and it is right there.

There's a direct link to it in the first post of this thread.

Also, if you do a search for friends season in DVDs, it's on the second page of search results.
