Amazon.com misprice on The Bretts

This 1987 British series is currently listed for $5.98 at amazon.com for a 5-disc set. I'm sure this should be $59.98...

Thank you for the NeedCoffee link. I had searched for a review but I couldn't find one at all.

I ordered a copy but you never know if Amazon will honor or cancel the orders. Next best price for the set is about $32 at DVDSoon. So obviously it looks like a misprice.

Well I just went with a blind buy on this title. I've never even heard of this show before, but it looks interesting...and for $6 you can't really go wrong.

Looks interesting, gave it a shot. Looks like it's #113 on the sales rank so maybe (probably not) it could slip under the radar. Here's hoping.

It's also a blind by for me but it is worth the gamble at that price. And I'm sure the sales rank will go up rapidly when more people are aware of the error. Also availability for shipping is 5 to 6 days, which means Amazon will most likely catch the misprice before shipping.

This is really a blind buy. What the heck. We'll see if Amazon honors this. It's been about 50/50 so far.

Still showing at $5.98 - just placed an order, and frankly I won't be surprised if this gets cancelled by Amazon, but worth a shot.

Since this would appear to be a substantial misprice that could be corrected at any time, holding back in the hopes of saving an extra 60 cents may not be the wisest thing to do.

Heh. I already had five STL's by yesterday afternoon. It's good to have connections.

And btw, I have to agree with illenium on this one. First disc I ever bought that I didn't know a damn thing about... but I love Brit-TV (and hopefully the Bretts).

Has this ever been on BBC-America?

Hmmm.... a $59.98 set selling for $5.98 and people are waiting for STL to save an extra $0.60?

In that case, don't forget to use the a9 search engine on the Amazon home page and save an additional pi/2% from your order. This will cut an additional - get ready - $.08 off the total for the set! That would make this set $5.30.

Jumped in blind on this one. Ordered with 2nd day delivery so they don't catch on too fast. Hope it works. Thanks to the OP.
