Got in before they killed it. Never seen the movie but I know a lot of people like it so I jumped at that great price. Does Amazon typically honor price mistakes or do they cancel orders?

Depends, I know when I was placing a order for a i5 (CPU) the price was $187. After I order it they gave me a deal on the i7e for $238. Priced at the time about $1200. Yup jump on it. I called to make sure they where going to send it and cancel the i5. The girl told me it was their mistake and even thought they fix it I would still get the i7e for that price. I did.

Would've liked to have jumped on that one, but I guess those either up late or out west benefited there. Looks like it the $6 price point was for the dvd, but the blu ray got tagged with it. I hope that those that were able to snag one get it honored (I am sure they will)

Looks like SD killed another one. Lot of "I bought 3 so I can trade 2 back to Amazon for $20 credit and a free blu ray" idiots.

Okay, had to get in on the Goonies for 6 bucks (and I never upgrade).

Didn't the Goonies BD $6 deal last for only 1-2 hours?

I was asleep then and there's no way I'm staying awake every night in case somebody might have a deal. Also, if this was a price mistake, Amazon often cancels the orders (at least they've usually done that to me). Fortunately Amazon doesn't have too many price errors that I know about, so if I place an Amazon order it's about 99% certain I'll get it, whereas if I were to place a Gohastings order there's about a 10% chance of getting it, B&N.com maybe 40%, and DD maybe 25%.

I can say with some confidence that if you wait, it will be cheaper someday. Like everything, it's a matter of how long you want to wait.

Chasing Amy is down to $10.99 for a cool 45% off, and at the URL, and apparently the lead actor in the film according to Amazon.

Fringe: Season 2 is down to $30.49 which is the lowest I've seen.

Thinking about picking up both.

Re: Amazon Discounts and Deals Thread #7 (is it #7? I'll pretend it is)

If you're thinking about getting Chuck Season 3, wait until next week. Best Buy will have it for $22.99 and I'm sure Amazon will match it.

I'm tempted to get Fringe at the price. $30 is my price point for a hour long drama that is about 22 episodes.

Same here. I jumped. Paid a couple bucks less for S1 around this time last year but I doubt S2 it will get much cheaper anytime soon.

That is pretty funny... Ethan's role was bigger in Mallrats than in Chasing Amy...

I would not go as far as call these people idiots. Amazon should code their buy back to match a % of what they are selling it for. I was a coder/programmer for this kind of software in the past (Shopzone). I know how they price and how items work on their site. Its how I get most of the deals (The Shield Season 1 to 7 total cost $22, KA Mixers 15 of them at $140 each (600)) Really so far this year 611 orders. I have to say if I was not up at the time it was posted I would never have seen it. Given that.

If you do that math, and if you do the work its like the stock market. Its also how Amazon is ran. If someone buys 3 copies and then sells them back at a profit good for them. Bad for those that missed it. I do know that some of there top sellers (Movies) buy from them and sell them cheaper. Again its how they wish to run their business.

Doing math the % is really good. Is it wrong. Depends on if you got a copy of it or not ( ) If these was a pricing mistake. I would put money on it. They will ship out the orders that people placed with 1 copy and the ones that have order more cancel them. I would.

Or instead of going to all that trouble just limit it to 1-2 copies per person. Problem solved.

Thanks for the heads up. I held off on Season 3 and scanned right over it in the ad thread.

Buying one (1) of something that looks like a clear price mistake, that's the thrill of the deal. Purchasing multiple copies to make a buck? Uncool. I'd much prefer to get someone else in on a deal then profit from it. YMMV.

Same here, if I think its a pricing error I will only buy one and if I get it I get [email protected] Great. I have never taken a cart full of items up and try to get them all. Like the other person said they could let people only buy 1 of each item but Amazon is in the business of making money and to sell more adds to the bottom line. Given that SD had made these kind of post and its now in the world. I am sure their accounting dept is going to step in and put a stop to it.

@this is not Amazon. I was a Target last summer walking by I seen they had the boxes of can cat food forsale at $2.75 (Norm $14.75). It was a manger that was stocking it. I asked her and she did tell me it was that price. I bought 15 boxes of them. I got to the checkout and was told it was the wrong price. She came up, and gave me the 15 boxes at that price. I would have been happy with one or two of them. Needless to say my Ragdolls are happy. Then again this is the same woman that sold me a $199.99 item for .01 (I have the recipe)
