Default 120 Primsacolor pencil set- cost?

Can anyone tell me how much these retail for? I'm trying to decide between getting them at HL with a coupon one week, at dickblick.com or trying ebay. I don't know how much they usually cost, so I want to make sure I'm getting a good deal.
Thanks!

I just saw the 48 set for 64.00 so I would imagine they would be around 140.00.

I got mine on Ebay a few years ago and paid $54. Hobby Lobby's website shows $139.99.

HTH,

I got mine via ebay a couple of years ago for about 60.00 plus shipping.. you can find some good deals on ebay - but you really want to watch and not get caught up in a bidding war! I can't remember exactly how you do it, but you can check on items the same as what you are bidding for to see the history of what has sold for what on ebay - like= you could check to see how much prisma colour pencil sets had actually sold for on ebay for the past month or two, via a search on ebay. That might help you to know the going price on ebay.

On eBay you will want to make sure the item you're bidding on consists of 120 *different* colours. I remember for a while there, some sellers were advertising "120 Prismacolour pencil sets" that were made up of multiples of a small number of different colours (ie. 3 pencil crayons each of forty different colours).

As mentioned by debzi333 above, if you want to see how much the final closing prices were for an item on eBAY, do an advanced search. Enter the item name and then click on the completed listings only. This gives you an idea of the range of final prices. I also pay attention to why some may have sold for high (perhaps other than just a bidding war) and why some may have sold for lower or not at all. To Mahloumel's point above this may give you clues on things you really need to look out for before bidding (like duplicate colors in the "120 set.")

I got mine a couple of months ago on ebay for $70. They were way cheaper going this way instead of HL even with the coupon. HTH

I was so excited to have a 50% off coupon at Michaels, but in Canada, this set of 120 costs...... (drumroll) $199. So I'm still looking
