Re: Comic Book Bargains & Hot Deals

Wish I'd checked here before the Hot Deals forum- AMAZING deal on Amazon and I would have definitely added invincible and madman to my order but with the shipping times for those two seems very improbable that I'd get them.

Unless you were lucky enough to find something in-stock, I put the odds of getting these for $14.99 at near 0%, same goes for the pre-orders. I mean, hells yeah I ordered about 10 books (3 of them in-stock when I ordered), but I'm not expecting to get any of them.

How can u tell if it will go through? I ordered a couple of omnibus books and I got a confirmation email with a delivery date....does that mean they will honor those or will there is a chance they will cancel it?

You/we may get lucky, but of course they don't have to honor misprices.

Re: Comic Book Bargains & Hot Deals

Not a whole lot there I'm interested in, but I did order the Madman Gargantua for $14.99... seems to be on backorder, so I don't know if I'll get it or not, but I won't be heartbroken if I don't.

Re: Comic Book Bargains & Hot Deals

With the limited printings of the Omnibus I wonder if there are even enough out there to cover all the orders!

I didn't order anything Marvel. But I did order Invincible and Criminal.

Ordered 7 of the $8.24 Omnibuses, and waiting to see if the other $14.99 omnibuses will drop in price later today.

Yikes, I ordered Wolverine at $14.99. Wonder if I should cancel and reorder. I'll get X-Men for kicks then too.

Re: Comic Book Bargains & Hot Deals

Amazon has shipped 8 Marvel Omnibuses with tracking numbers, I hope the rest of you get yours as well!
This has to be a once in a decade deal, up there with some of the big lots dvd stuff a few months back.

3 of my 4 have shipped. Madman is the only one left for me. The two I really cared about are already on their way. Woo hoo.

Re: Comic Book Bargains & Hot Deals

One of my four shipped - really wish I had tried for Invincible now - that is the one I probably would have wanted more than ANY of the others. I was so convinced these would all get canceled. Still not sure they'll get stock to fill the rest but one of the two that I really care about getting has shipped already. Thanks again Marvel for the heads up!!

Re: Comic Book Bargains & Hot Deals

Just got an e-mail saying Madman is out of stock, so they've cancelled the order. I'm completely fine with that.

Re: Comic Book Bargains & Hot Deals

All of mine were cancelled.

We have no right to complain, as it was an obvious pricing mistake, but I am sort of kicking myself for not ordering until ~12 hours after I first saw the news of the 'deal'.

Re: Comic Book Bargains & Hot Deals

ordered 10, 3 shipped, 2 shipping soon status, 5 cancelled. Not bad, since I expected none of them. Got 3 of the 4 books I wanted the most (Invincible Iron Man, Ultimates, Secret Wars) but missed out on X-Men Omnibus

Re: Comic Book Bargains & Hot Deals

So I got this today after my whole order was canceled.

Hello,

We wanted to follow up on a recent message we sent about the cancellation of your recent order.

To recap: Due to a pricing error, we sold many more graphic novels than expected. In fact, we completely sold out — we don't have any in stock right now, and we're not sure when we'll be able to get more.

We're sorry for any frustration the issue may have caused, and have applied a $25 promotional certificate to your account.

You can use it the next time you order an item shipped and sold by Amazon.com. You'll see your available promotional balance at checkout--this amount will be applied to your next order automatically without entering a claim code.

I hope this helps. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Sincerely,

Customer Service
Amazon.com

Yay free 25 dollars!
