No, the stuff that comes in a bottle is grossly overpriced.  The stuff from India comes in flat plastic containers about 5x2x1 cms, and is quite a bit cheaper than that.

  I have seen it at Costco in the spice section, would this be the same of what you are talking about?  It was $28-30 for a bottle of it.

  The most cost effective place to buy saffron is from either an East Indian 
  food store or a Health Food store.  It appears that most of the world's 
  supply of saffron now originates in India, where it is still used quite a 
  bit as a culinary spice.  Even so, it is quite expensive.  Do make sure you 
  buy whole stigmata and not a powder.
