    Thanks for the offer - that's a hell of a discount from my asking prices though! (Unless I was well off with the original pricing) :laugh:

    Would you meet in the middle at £65? If so I can get these parcelled up and despatched via Collect+ today/tomorrow as I'm at home at the moment.

    HI

    could go to £55

    as Private Practice is New on Amazon for only £50 (R2) and NCIS Amazon did have 1-8 for about £45, so was hoping for another price drop soon (currently £65 ish)

    let me know

    Let me have a think about it (or more accurately my wife as they're her boxsets!).

    £65 seems like a very reasonable price (to us) as that's over 43% off the brand new/in stock prices you've quoted and as ours are still in excellent condition the only difference is the cellophane!

    Oh yeah, I hadn't spotted that subtlety! :blush:

    Would £60 be do-able? :)

    Tell you what, it isn't really worth our effort haggling over a couple of quid so I'll happily accept your offer of £55. :thumbsup:

    Let's move to PM to sort out the small print.

    Thanks for the offer but that's way too low!

    As a direct comparison if you bought new from Amazon US Season 5, Season 6 and Season 7 come to around US$98 delivered, which is about £64! (Purely for illustration, as it's not matching like for like, if you buy the UK equivalents from Amazon UK they'd still set you back £38 brand new).

    Fair enough. Good luck getting any sort of price for Region 1 box sets...

    Not sure if you have taken offence at my refusal there! :blush:

    I was merely trying to show that I thought my prices were fairly reasonable (compared to new anyway) so an offer asking for a 40% discount seemed low. Part of the problem is P&P - those 3 weigh 900g (just checked!) before packaging them up so I'm looking at sending a bulky 1kg parcel and the P&P per title is significant. However I'd entertain that pro-rata'd price per title if you want to buy a few more! :D

    No problem. I was just pointing out that they'll be sat on your shelves with what you are asking for.

    But maybe, just maybe, what I'm asking for them could be a different number to what they actually sell for... :)

    I personally don't think that's true. 90% of the titles I've sold on this thread have been R1.

    Would £25 for those 3 seasons be any good to you?

    Tumbleweeds = I guess not then!

    Anybody else fancy lining my pockets by buying some of my extravagantly over-priced DVDs? :laugh:
