I found a partial Roots of Asia at one my favorite metaphysical shops while talking to the woman helping me look through their excellent deck selection.  She was going to sell it to me for $20 since several cards were missing - and then another person said, “Wait, I think we have a pile of miscellaneous cards here, may be the missing ones are there!”  And sure enough they were - and they still only charged me $25 for the complete deck.  It is beautiful and peaceful and I cherish it.

My best deal so far would have to be my Black Mirror Oracle. When I found it I wasn't really actively looking for an oracle, or any deck for that matter. I just like to keep an eye on TradeMe (an NZ thing similar to Ebay). As I was looking through the used decks available I came across this one for only $20 (it's $85 if you get it from the artist's site). I really liked the artwork I could see and there was Hekate, who I had just started working with, in one of the pictures of the cards. So I thought "I'll put in a bid for it and if I get it I get it, if not then oh well." Low and behold I won the auction! Once I received it I discovered how wonderful and beautiful and intense it was. It's now become a regular in both my tarot (it's tarot based) and oracle practice! :D I absolutely love it! :D

I've had some good luck so had quite a few nice finds within a short period of time (I only started tarot a little over a year ago)

Liminal Tarot for $55 and Collective Tarot for $60 on eBay
Baroque Bohemian Cats 2nd ed. deck still sealed for $30 on Amazon (which I proceeded to use my Amazon points to buy so got it for free  X-D)
De Laurence's RWS Tarot red edition for less than $5 (it was a lot of 11 other OOP decks for $50 though this one was by far the most valuable)

By far the best find was a vintage Pam B deck for $200.
HOWEVER the seller cancelled my order with no warning then when I demanded an answer as to why it was cancelled they cited issues with the condition. But I have since learned from another tarot friend that contacted the seller that he still has it and plans on putting it back up on eBay using auction instead of Buy It Now like he did earlier. This has happened to me a couple times where a seller cancelled an order just to later relist it for more money, but this was definitely by far the most upsetting.  :'(
