I see people paying ridiculous prices (like US$40+) on ebay for the Puerto Rico expansions and it almost makes me want to cry.

If the Treasure Chest is still available then these people are getting seriously ripped off. Even in NZ (where prices are higher than US) I got the entire Treasure Chest for around NZ$45.

The other thing is that if people buying these expansions just because they have Puerto Rico would be better off getting the Treasure Chest and that may then lead them into getting some other great euros.

It's still available in the US. The issue with high Ebay prices may be two-fold: first, there was a long while when the Puerto Rico expansions weren't available at all (and possibly some folks aren't aware of the Treasure Chest containing those). And second, perhaps, as you state, they don't want the other expansions. It might seem a reasonable plan -- "I'll just buy the expansion I want" -- or even something of a defense mechanism -- "if I don't buy them all, I won't be tempted to then go and buy them all."

But yes, still available.

I have a complete Treasure chest up for trade!

Well it's not complet any more, since the PR expansions have been sold off.

The rest is still up for trade/sale.

The original expansion for Puerto Rico has dedicated Forest Tiles that don't come in the Treasure Chest version. That might be a draw for some people.

the dedicated tiles are just the flipped over ones from the base game.
