I hate it when sellers set an artificially low price with a view to enticing prospective buyers into making bids based on their apparent, but unrealistic, minimum price. If you really want these materials, you could ask the seller what their "genuine, lowest price" is and then decide whether or not you want to buy the bundle. Only 14 hours left!

Oh, it wasn't that. Someone else outbid me. And I hit my max I was willing to pay with shipping thrown in.

Oh, I apologize for my strong reaction. Nevertheless, I take this as a sure sign that Trolls are following this forum … ah, er, unless, of course, a fellow member were to admit having outbid you!

Pimsleur is 25% off for digital courses until 11/26. You can always find a 10% off code but I've never seen them go up to 25% off for the downloads.

It's 50% off for CDs if you prefer a hard copy.

The code is "BESTDEAL".

I didn't see that. AAAAAARRRRGHHH. I would have bid a lot more than what that finally sold for.
And dammit, I'm supposed to stay off eBay (i just bid on something...)

Glassbow is offering all books for a given language for $9 or all languages with lifetime access (to current and future books) for $49.

https://www.glassbow.com/collection

I have no clue if these are high quality and no idea why or how I had this website bookmarked. But it seems like good value.

I have not seen these books myself, but now and then I have a browse at r/languagelearning on Reddit and there is a recent thread about the Glassbow bundle. Some of the comments from people who have bought the books are not encouraging. I am providing this link for context only, in case people want more information before they commit.

Not sure if you guys have seen this elsewhere but Pimsleur has a subscription option which isn't mentioned anywhere on their website.

The subscription is pretty cheap too, only $15-$20 per month, which is a much better deal than purchasing their courses outright. I wrote a review of it on my site - https://www.alllanguageresources.com/pimsleur/. The link is in there. Sorry for not posting it directly - it's an affiliate link and don't think that would be allowed here.

One thing I did notice is that it seems to only be available for those connecting from the USA.
