    Bensons World have dropped their price since I ordered as I got it from them for £132.99 and that was using a 5% discount voucher, wonder if they will apply that discount to the new price :D

    If you have an Egg Card, pop along to egg.com and find the cashback offers page. They are offering 10% cashback for purchases from Whsmiths. So click through the link to Whsmiths who are selling it for £137.63 (including postage) and you will get a credit on your egg card of £13.76 making the set just £123.87!

    You also get 5% cashback off cd-wow with an Egg Card. Occasionally they do specials where this increases to 10 or 20% off.

    If you have an egg card and use a cashback site like Quidco (with 7% cashback at WHsmiths) brings the price down to about £115 plus you also get clubcard points. At the end of the day every little helps.

    They did not start shooting in 'widescreen' format after the first 3 or 4 seasons (I think).

    Just thought I would mention that if you sign up for Amazon Rental you get 10% of DVDs and this brings the X-Files Boxset down to £121.49 which is a great price, I signed up last night and was well chuffed, that was until I found out this morning that my order with Bensons World at £132.99 has entered the Dispatch process so I cant cancel the order :(

    No, there are only a few sites that have cashback deals with Egg. Whsmiths and CD-wow are the only ones who sell DVDs and CD-wow do not have this boxset.

    I would appreciate it if someone can confirm what the packaging looks like. I am hoping it is the current M-Lock cases in a larger box

    I am sure it is what you think :)

    It should just be a large box with 9 M-Lock dvd cases inside.

    I get mine tomorrow as well :clap:

    Nice pics, but it looks like yours has taken a few hefty bashes on the corners. Hoping mine arrives in slightly better condition.

    Havent decided yet whether I am going to send it back or not and until I do its probaley best not to break the seal but from the size and weight I am sure it is just 9 m-lock cases inside.
