Today’s entry into the Great Geek Gift Countdown of 2010 comes as a complete surprise. Prior to this morning, I had zero intention of featuring my favorite television box set of all-time as part of this series. It’s been on the market for some time now and I had been living under the impression that everyone had forgotten about it for a while. Then Amazon went and made it today’s Gold Box Deal. It left me no choice but to throw it in here as a public service.
This box set usually retails for around $250. To me, that’s more than enough for Jerry, George, Elaine and everyone’s favorite crazy neighbor Kramer. In fact, that’s what I paid for it several years ago when it first hit stores. And I took George’s parents, the Puffy Shirt, the pig man and the Soup Nazi to be bonuses at that price. But rest assured that they’re all there.
So why wouldn’t you head over to Amazon today and buy it for $84.99?
It’s the one day sale that could make someone on your Christmas list very happy.
How the Price Index Works:
For our ‘Price Index,’ we’ve devised a four-level scale based on the expense of the items we’re recommending. This is based on our research (mainly on Amazon and other fine retailers). It breaks down like so:
Dirt Cheap: Cost of $25 or less.
Affordable: Cost of no greater than $50.
A Worthy Stretch: Slightly more expensive, but no more expensive than $150.
For the Rich: Gifts for those you really, really love. $150 and greater items only need apply here.
