The lowest price according to CCC was back in October 2012 - $93.19. It has been hovering around $139.95 for awhile.
EDIT 8/26: price has dropped to $78.61! Yes, ships in 2-5 weeks but early holiday shopping! Also - these Education sets are just plain boxes filled with LEGOs. There is an "idea" book, but this is ideally aimed for kids who just want to experiment with various creations. So if you want to build something specific and leave it up for display, this may not be the set with you.
Anybody interested in buying this for a young child should read the reviews first. Instructions are provided for only a few of the products. I imagine it will be frustrasting for a 5 year old trying to figure out hoe to build an air traffic control building from one small picture.

Just checked the link, price is now down to $78.61! Worth the 2 to 5 week wait. Great price on great set.
To counter the negative reviews about having instructions for just a few of the pictured items, this is the genius of LEGO! I'm sure the instructions illustrate some basic building concepts, then the kids use the skills they learned from the instructions combined with their imagination to build countless creations. LEGO is the best toy ever created, kids will always come back to LEGO once they have lost interest in other toys.

FYI, the design of the pieces used in this set are at least 25 years old!!! None of the newer specialized pieces.
