Default Battlestar Galactica Individual Seasons Import Amazon France

I have done a search and haven't found this posted yet apologies if I overlooked an existing thread...

Since the individual Seasons 1 and 2 of Battlestar Galactica are $66.49 and $89.98 respectively on Amazon US, I thought I'd quickly post the French releases sold on Amazon FR.

Seasons 1 and 2 are 39.98, Season 3 is 39.48.
Without VAT and in US$ that comes to about 41$ each.

Delivery to the US is 11$ (9) per shipment + 2.35$ (1.90) per item.

Which means you end up paying about 55$ for each Season delivered individually, 98$ for 2 of them, or 141$ for Seasons 13.

I know that all in all it's still cheaper to buy the UK Boxset (136$ delivered from Amazon UK), or even the Canadian one that includes The Plan (153$ delivered from Amazon CA), but for people who only want to start with one Season, this is still a valid and as far as I know the cheapest option (that is, if you don't mind that little bit of French on the box).
I should mention that Ecranlarge .com confirm all three seasons to be region free with DTS-HD MA English and French Audio tracks and English and French subtitles.

Here are the links:

I know, but I don't see many FR deals here.

perhaps, but one should keep this in mind:

amazon 3rd party pricing for the seasons individually have dropped pretty hard at times. one COULD get the entire set for under 100, easy, since it's just 4 sets. i've seen some go below 14 at times. season 1 has been the stickler so far.

You're saying that I could get Season 1, 2, 3 & 4 (that is 4.0 plus 4.5) for less than 25$ each, but I've never seen this posted here, nor does it seem likely when I look at the 3rd party prices on Amazon. The cheapest I see for Season 1 is 45$ shipped (and I'm guessing there's tax on top of that), Season 2 is 35$ shipped and Season 3 can be pre-ordered for 65$ from Amazon (not 3rd party). AFAIK Season 4.0 has not been released yet, and 4.5 is 31$ 3rd party.

So, I really don't see how you can get the whole series for under 100$, but you're right that Seasons 1 & 2 are cheaper when bought from Amazon 3rd party, which means importing from France is really only the cheapest option for season 3 or seasons 1 & 3 together.

Anyway, at least we have collected about all cheap options of buying BSG in this thread now.

Well dammit post them when you see them at $14, because I'd buy those in a heartbeat and I've been waiting a long time for a good deal on BSG.
