Boardgame Revolution deal of the day

http://www.boardgamerevolution.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=f...

Free shipping is at $100, flat $8.99 per order otherwise

Not a bad deal. Base game is a standard $40 (less expensive than B&B, more expensive than CSI), but each expansion at only $15 is a good deal. I haven't seen it cheaper.

But is it such a hot deal when you figure in the cost of shipping?

Moreover, how competitive are their regular prices? After all, to make up for the remaining $85.01 you'd have to purchase to get free shipping, you would have to purchase a lot of regular-priced games.

Would love me some Formula D expansion maps...unfortunately at $30 a pop I canot justify it. With shipping, this deal comes out at $23...still not bad, but I cannot bring myself to pay shipping ever for any reason. And spending $100 on games right now is right out.

Yeah, unfortunately like most places, it's is a much better deal if you buy more (two would make them $19.50 each including shipping...which is what the cheapest places are selling them for without shipping).

(Although, Amazon has the third expansion for $32 with free shipping and all the other sites charge shipping for small orders, so yeah, I'd say $23 is still pretty good.)

Myself, I'm sitting on a large order that I foresee being able to afford in the nearish future and the right deal will probably make me bite (I'm holding out for Troyes though). I figure something like this might be the catcher for someone else if they knew about it.

Clearly you'd want to buy all the maps in one go to bring the shipping down to $3 per map.

I was considering the base game and all 3 maps, and then the Kingsburg Bundle. But they don't have the #2 map anymore, unless I pay more for a combo pack. Oh well.
