it was free! sort of...

November 14th, 2009 at 11:34 pm

A friend recently gave us the first season of Dexter to borrow.
I had seen the first episode when it first aired, but it was on too late for me to watch it regularly and I wanted to watch it all the way through, so we purposely haven't watched any more of it since the first show.

We watched the first season in two days.

One of the (many) things we like to spend money on is series on DVD. DF hates advertisements on television and I don't like watching whole movies on weeknights because it leaves me little time to do anything else.

I was looking on eBay to try and find the best price for the second season, and realised it was cheaper to buy season 1, 2 and 3 together. The cheapest I could find was $120 including postage.

Then I realised we set our DVD player to region free a few years ago, so I started looking in other countries.

I found series 1, 2 and 3 for $66.92 (US$61.95) with FREE postage from the US.

After some questions with the seller I decided to buy it, when I discovered that we already had $69.72 in our Paypal account (which I had forgotten about).

Even though it WASN'T free, it certainly feels like it.

I have two skincare products to sell on eBay this month too. I am hoping to buy Californication season 1 with that money. I also want to get True Blood. All of our friends have been going on about it, and someone even copied the discs for us but they didn't work. So eh. We can wait for that one, but I'd still like to see it eventually.

    We watched the first season in about 2 days too back in August 2008 when our granddaughter was born and we were altogether renting a house for a week. Funny story. Son-in-law's sister was watching with us and was like "ew this is icky, I don't want to watch this". We were all like "too bad we are watching it". She of course sat and watched until we all went to bed and proceeded to stay up until 2:00 a.m. to finish watching the entire first season because she was flying home the next day.

    We of course are caught up and are watching the current season since I have Showtime free for 3 months.
