Half.com Warning

They had a $15 off $50 special. The website showed the coupon was applied. The pre auth to my bank was correct.

HOWEVER, the amount actually billed to my card neglected the discount. It SHOULD have been $45.29, they billed $60.29.

Ebay (who owns half) has confirmed there was an error, but says Half must fix it.

Half has not replied to my emails through their site, & the phone # published to Visa has a tape recording that hangs up on you no matter what you push. I've had trouble with them in the past. NEVER AGAIN.

If the $15 is not refunded by Friday, i will dispute the entire charge with Visa.

Consider yourself warned.

The bargain is that if you don't buy you save or something like that!

Re: Half.com Warning

Store forum might be a better spot. Although if anyone posts the $15 off $50 coupon for half.com, then we should heed these words.

Re: Half.com Warning

I've had good luck buying movies from Half.com.

Never saw the promotion you're talking about, though.

Re: Half.com Warning

Half.com went to shit when they allowed people to sell stuff for more than half price.

When has that ever changed?

Half.com used to only deal with college textbooks, didn't it? That was the purpose, to offer the textbooks at half the price. Then eBay bought it and was going to shut it down back in 2004, but for whatever reason changed their decision on it. From then on movies, music, and whatever else was implemented.

Since then I've always seen things way over retail because they have such a massive selection. It's just another option to find rare items.

Half.com has always had movies and music. I sold most of my VHS movies through their site back in 1999 when they started.

Actually when they came out, they did require you to sell it at half the list price or for less. They only had media items at the time. The system would not allow you to list it for a higher price. That policy changed very early on though. I still remember getting the e-mail of the change. They said they received a lot of feedback from people wanting to sell items for more than half the price.
