A question about Steven Spielberg's Taken

Does anyone have this DVD set that they can tell me how much it weighs? I want to order this from Deep Discount, it's well over their $25 minimum for free shipping, yet they want to charge me $2.99 extra shipping for a supposedly overweight item (1 lbs?).

My reasoning is that Taken has 6 discs, the same as a season of Fringe or NCIS, which weigh between 11 & 11.5 oz. apiece, and they both ship for free. How can Taken weigh that much more, unless there is some kind of DELUXE packaging that adds 3/4 of a pound to the weight?

Anyone?


Thanks!

The card board case is thicker than a regular set but not much heavier.

Thanks for responding but I was hoping to find out just how much this thing weighs, to determine if Deep Discount is correct or if they're completely full of shit.

Theyre usually full of shit.... They're running a sale, but finding a way to still charge people.
