What's the best price anybody has seen this for????
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
Think i will cancel my order with Bensons now Play have it for the same price, seeing as play will send it Special Next Day
Did Play tell you that? as I would have thought they would just send it via courier from Jersey.
I thought said it on on there site that anything above £75 gets sent SD, but now i read it and it says this

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!
Shame i don't have an Egg Card....
for £14 it's worth applying for one
You also get 5% cashback off cd-wow with an Egg Card. Occasionally they do specials where this increases to 10 or 20% off.
Anybody know if the first two series of the boxset are in widescreen or are they still full screen like previous releases
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.
Werent the first few seasons filmed in Fullscreen though?
Anyone know what season they started to go WS ?
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
I feel for you mate, and with the egg card is there any discounts with amazon? (if so can both offers be combined?)
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.
Mine went into Dispatch as well today
Looks like i could have it for friday.
So I doubt we'll be reading much from you after the weekend
I had an email from Bensons World asking if anyone would be in on Friday so must be coming via courier
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
Well I have been told that mine will be delivered via Courier on Friday so will take some pics when it arrives.
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
Here are some pics of the set...
Nice pics, but it looks like yours has taken a few hefty bashes on the corners. Hoping mine arrives in slightly better condition.
Its only really the bottom left corner of the case lid that is dented, all the others are fine but I dont know whether I should complain about it?
Nice pictures, Indiana Jones. Can we see the case open ?
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.
