Gilligan's Island Complete Series $29.99 (bestbuy, amazon, wbshop)

All 98 episodes of 3 seasons of Gilligan's island in a cardboard case. It's been in the $30s a few times before, but I think this is the cheapest it's been with free shipping. Choose whichever place is more convenient for you. I think these should all be the 17 disc single sided sets and not the double-sided releases.

bestbuy:

wbshop:

amazon (ships in 9-11 days, choose amazon as seller):
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0050MB5AC/

I went with bestbuy since it would be easy to return without cost until January if it drops even lower. Even though the listing on bestbuy says 9 disc, the sets I saw in store were all the 17 disc single sided versions.

Strangely, season 3 in this set is a slimmer packaging than the separate release season 3 in store, which is thicker like 1 and 2, so it saves some shelf space. Not sure why the different packaging for 3, since I think they are both the single sided sets.

Yeah, I bought the single sided seasons individually because I didn't like that season 3 was in slimmer case in the box. Now to find the original 3 pk box.

Those are the flipper disc releases, not the single sided versions which are preferable.

I bought the 2-sided discs before they went out of print. Reissuing them as twice as many one-sided discs is a huge step backwards.

^There are many, myself included, that would strongly disagree.

The two Costcos near me in SoCal have the double sided discs as does the Chicago area Costcos from what my brother tells me. It's the individual seasons bundled together. Glad you found the single sided ones!

I too dislike flipper discs, but I'm not sure I watch this series enough to spend the money upgrading. It's tempting though.

The CostCo in Albany,Or had the new set 17 disc(2011) UPC#883929164875.
They are now sold out.So it looks like it is hit or miss on new set at Costco.


Heres the UPC code for the 9 disc flipper release in 2007
#053939796124

The UPCs are the best way to check ahead of time but if you are already stuck with the older set, I've had good luck with Costco's return policy which is very liberal even on opened media.

Damn, I didn't want to spend the money, but my OCD made me do it. Really I've been wanting to rid myself of the double sided sets for awhile and with free shipping at the WB Shop I broke down and went for it. I also got Season 4/5 of THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN for $8.99 which completes the series for me. Even with tax a pretty good deal. If I can sell my single seasons of GILLIGAN'S that will help offset the cost.

Thanks to the OP for this bargain.

$25 shipped is my limit for this set.

With the early price drops everywhere, I suspect this will continue to drop during BF season.
