Title: Artscroll Shas
Post by: dmilleryu on January 01, 2020, 09:36:04 PM
I just got back from the siyum today, and looking to buy an Artscroll Daf Yomi edition shas.

It looks like they are selling it for $1,599 on Artscroll and $1,450 on Eichlers and JudaicaPlace. Any reason to buy from Artscroll directly?

Is there a cheaper place to purchase?

Seforimdeals and sossover can get cheaper than that. Especially today.

Right now, the cheapest appears to be $1,400 dafyomi size: http://seforimsets.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=314

Hopefully someone has cheaper...

First all of Mazal Tov, and hatzlacha with this. It changed my life (obviously l'tovah) and I am sure you wont regret it.

Every year in the end of January/beginning of February, artscroll does a major sale on their gemaras usually like 25-33% off list. After I completed shas the first time with the Dial-A-Daf CDrom and Soncinos, in 2005 my AC and FiL started buying me the ArtScroll gemaras in 1 year blocks every Jan/Feb when they went on sale. As Artscroll was still finishing the translations in the late 2000s, that was the only way to get a complete shas and it worked out very well as the Daf Yomi editions ran about $21-22 a volume at Eichlers.

It was truly a game changer for me and I wish you all the best on your journey.

Why not buy it volume by volume? It's a 0% interest 7.5 year loan. Or buy a year's worth at each sale.

Learn Just One Daf and an
ArtScroll Shas Can Be Yours


As Rabbi Frand said at the Siyum HaShas, even if one does not finish the entire Shas, taking part in even a small portion of Daf Yomi is its own accomplishment. Donít let perfect be the enemy of the good.
 
We want to encourage you to start.
 
Commit to learn just the first Daf of Berachos in memory of Rabbi Meir Zlotowitz and we will enter you into a raffle for your own complete ArtScroll Schottenstein Shas. One winner will receive the entire print edition, and five more winners will receive a digital download of the entire Shas.

Just bought it for $1,375 (after some haggling...) - That's $18.83 per volume. Each volume retails for $41.99 and on sale is ~$29.

I think it's a much better deal buying the set at once.

Seems like my odds of winning this are about as good as winning the powerball jackpot.

You win regardless. The question is if you win a shas.

I couldn't hold myself back. Ordered. I wonder how come they are way cheaper than the other stores with the same sale.

My attic is going to need to be used....

@EJB Frequency and severity? More often than Google Play?
I think if you buy via Apple you can also download on Android if it's linked to the same Artscroll account. Cmiiw.

ETA: I don't think that you actually buy the volumes on GP. They have the library app on Play Store and you need to buy the volumes from Artscroll.com. Similar in Apple world?

I don't have any experience with the Artscroll app, but I know Apple's rules are that you can't have purchased that are only available outside of iTunes.
