Alien Quadrilogy Used for $27.99 at Wherehouse.com

It looks like they have the sets back in stock, so grab one while you can. Cheapest price online that I have seen for this $70.00 set.

And with over 50 hours of bonus material, well worth the price.

You can use the code VISACOOL to get free shipping.

I already have the Alien Legacy boxed set. Is it worth trying to replace it with this?

The "Quadrilogy", awful name aside, is streets ahead. New cuts of films and great sound options, as well as tons of interesting features. You'd never think Alien 3 was worth it before...

DO be aware that this price is for a USED copy.

If you want it NEW, it'll cost you $79.98 through Wherehouse.

Yeah, looks like I got the last copy. I don't mind it being used as long as it's not beat up.

If this comes in a cardboard box, then chances are it'll be in bad shape. I ordered several box sets during their 33%-off sale several months ago and every one came with long gashes, punctures, knicks, etc.

The box for this is very delicate and easily damaged so it's likely that the box will arrive in pretty bad shape. If the discs are in decent shape I'd probably toss the box and put them in keep cases. The Quadrilogy box is a pain since it folds out to about a mile and the plastic disc holders come unglued from the cardboard very easily.

Costco might have another deal on Quadrilogy at some point.

They were selling it late last year for $29.99 after a $20 instant rebate. That's when I bought a copy.

It's an amazing collection although the third and fourth films still pale in comparision to the first two.

I've bought several used sets from wherehouse.com, and they have been mint condition quality. They also gave me a full refund when one order did not arrive.

I've received some good and some bad from Wherehouse. My GWTW 4-disc set ordered Used during their big sale arrived torn, shredded, broken, shattered...though they did issue a return shipping label and refund my money without a problem (they do have good customer service generally). Other single DVD's arrived in generally pretty good condition. Not mint, but fine.

I personally wouldn't order "collectible" items like box sets from them anymore. I want things like the Alien Quadrilogy, GWTW, Ben Hur, etc., to be new and mint. On the other hand, a used DVD of say Stuart Little or Rescuers Down Under for my son, I don't much care if it's not mint.

I have bought from them in the past and also got this set a few weeks ago and it came in mint condition. I agree with jeffre r. that the customer service is excellent, any times I have had a problem they have always refunded my money and had good communication with me.

Yeah, they're hit and miss but good CS, indeed. I've returned stuff I've simply changed my mind about for full refunds and no extra cost.

Oh, btw, icruise, let us know what condition the DVDs and box is in when you get it. I'm sure we'd all be curious to see how well it turned out. That said, wherehouse should not be that bad about conditions, as I have received some horrible looking stuff from hitmenow.com (a.k.a. tradeup.com) and gamestop.com, comparatively speaking.

Did you just order Alien set? He said get free shipping on that. If you order more than 2 it's only $3 off. VISACOOL code can be used multiple times ($3 off $10 purchase).

My set arrived a few days ago. Overall it was in decent condition, but the outer box did have some obvious dents in it. I personally don't mind it too much. I sold my old Alien Legacy box set and upgraded to this one for a difference of around $5, which seems like a pretty good deal to me. I haven't watched any of the discs yet though.

It is back in stock now if anyone wants to grab the last one.

I received my set, but was a bit disappointed. The slipcase has sticker residue, and kinda beat up, and one of the disc holders came completely lose.
