BestBuy.com - BB Exclusive Farscape Complete $69.99 + S&H + Tax

Seems likely this would be in-store, too, but since it's not in the ad, I can't be sure. I also got an error trying to select in-store pickup during checkout, but that could just be me.

In any case, Best Buy had their exclusive version of this set for preorder for $129.99; it's now dropped to $69.99k. The 'exclusive' here is that the Peacekeeper Wars miniseries is included, and actually packed in the box itself, not just shrinkwrapped on.

The miniseries DVD is a dirt-cheap standalone purchase, but the current BB.com price actually competes decently with the cheapest online prices for the normal, no-miniseries sets. Given how integral the miniseries is to the storyline, I'm happy to have a chance to grab a complete box set that is actually going to be complete.

Supposedly limited to 5,000 copies; I could actually see these selling out relatively quickly if the $69.99 shows up in-store too.

I'm only seeing one set and it doesn't mention the miniseries, how do you know this is the exclusive version?

I was able to do in store pickup, so gave it a shot. Thanks OP. Now, to sell my starbursts...which I should have done months ago.

I've heard great things about this show, is it worth the blind buy for someone who is into SciFi Television shows?

The Best Buy Version says 26 Discs and on Amazon it says 25 Discs.

Thanks.

Yeah, it's a great blind buy, but it's a strange enough show that some people absolutely loathe it. It took me a while to get into it, but it turned out to be one of my favorites.

Yeah I need to get rid of the few discs I have for season 1 as well this week.

And I looked at what TV Shows on DVD said about the press release for the Farscape set and they said the Best Buy edition with PeaceKeeper Wars was only limited to 5000 copies.

So I really don't know if you'll be able to get the whole thing for the $70.

Even if it isn't included and you have to get PeaceKeeper Wars by itself for $10, $69.99 is still a great price for all four seasons.

Are both discs of the Peacekeeper Wars included in the Best Buy set or just the first disc?

What are the chances the price for this stays the same in BB stores this Tuesday?

Had no problem placing the order using in-store pickup. Nice deal, particularly having been able to apply a couple reward zone certificates to the order, too. Thanks for the heads up.

$70 shipped at Deep Discount after $5 coupon. No tax, either (important for those of us in CA who pay 9.5% or more).

In for a blind buy on this one. The deal is just too good to pass up! In-store pick-up as well

Yeah the more I thought about it after I saw the first posting of the price drop I was like "Well I'd do store pick up so I'd get tax anyway so the $5 and then some more would show up anyway."

Glad I held off purchasing the sets all these years.

In for one with in-store pickup.

Does the complete series box set have all the extras from the Starburst editions?

As far as I've seen, yes all extras from the Starbursts are included.

Re: BestBuy.com - BB Exclusive Farscape Complete $69.99 + S&H + Tax

Did i miss the window for in-store pickup? I only see 'ship' as an available option. So I guess the question is to order for shipment and hope it comes in good shape, or that I cancel it before it ships, or to wait and hope I can order it tomorrow for in-store pickup (or just get it in-store).
I had S1 I got for a song a while back and sold it for over 100, so the entire set for 70 is crazy.

When I think about how much money I spent on my Farscape DVD's, I cringe. I bought the original sets, then upgraded to the Starbursts, and now this? I know I don't NEED this set, but it's still sooo tempting!

Last week when I wanted to grab Heat, in-store pick-up wasn't available until Tuesday morning. It should be an option for Farscape in the morning.

I was able to order last night with in-store pickup at my local store. In fact I got an email this morning telling me that it was pulled but I can't come get it until tomorrow.

In-store pick up available again in my area (Chicago).

Picking this up on the way home tonight, but weary of whether I am going to enjoy this series. Curiosity definitely got the best of me at that price.
