With 2006 drawing to a close, what was your favourtie dvd bargain this year?

Think mine has to be the £2.99 Goonies DVD from the recent HMV day offer (I know not a lot cheaper than normal, but one I've always wanted hence a real bargain). :)
Happy Xmas all.

I think my favourite was the Battlestar Galactica Series 2 for around £9.99 from CD-WOW :)

Both Battlestar Galatica S2 for £12.99 and House S2 fom CD Wow for £14.99. House was that price less than 4 weeks after it first came out for £34.99 at most places. Also, BSG was that price just 2 months later.

My personal favourite is my 40-disc Bond attaché case for £113 from HMV (after discounts and Quidco)

then there's Enterprise seasons 2 and 4 for a total of £18.48 (CD WOW cancelled, refunded and then despatched one of the orders :rotfl:)

others ... Doctor Who 2005 season for £30 (a one or two day CD WOW misprice either late last year or early this year) ... Doctor Who 2006 season for £33.04 (you can probably still do it at WOW for a dollar/~60p
more)

Stargate Atlantis, SG1, Outer Limits etc - season 1 boxsets very cheap from Amazon.com a month or two ago - around a tenner each iirc

It would of been buying the Leone/Eastwood western box set in a HMV sale but i had already bought all the DVD'd individualy about 2-3 weeks prior in another HMV sale.

So i would have to say finding this site has been my bargain of the year. Also partyweb making me aware of find-dvd.co.uk (thank again partyweb). Both sites make bargain hunting so much easier.

I can only think of The Usual Suspects SE for £2.99 from HMV. Today. Although knowing HMV's delivery, that won't count as a 2006 bargain. More like a 2008 one.

But maybe that's because I only remember it because I've slept since I last ordered anything else so forgot.

It might have a nightmare at times but I got some absolute bargains from the Filmnight sale at the start of the year - don't remember most of them but the Indiana Jones set for £9.99 stands out.

Also there was a times when a few of us got the Batman 2-disc sets for a knock down price - that was pretty great too.

I also got WOT as well but at £12.99. I don't think Supernatural was a misprice as it was a preorder and they had plenty of time to cancel it if they wanted to.
