R.E.M. "And I Feel Fine" 2 CD Set & "When The Light Is Mine" DVD - $14.99 @ Amazon

Since Best Buy screwed up in the wording on this deal in this week's ad, leave it to Amazon to screw it up anyway. ;-)

Amazon is offering both the "And I Feel Fine..." double-CD set and "When The Light Is Mine" DVD collection for a combined price of $29.98.

However, when you place the combo deal in your cart and proceed to the checkout page, the deal comes across as $14.99 in the upper right of as:

Item(s) Subtotal: $31.98
Shipping & Handling: $0.00
Best Value Savings: $-16.99
Best Value Savings: $0.00
-----
Total Before Tax: $14.99
Estimated Tax: $0.00
-----
Grand Total: $14.99

(I'm in the Amazon Prime trial deal right now, but it does appear that it will qualify for Free Super Saver as well since it is initially over $25 -- but YMMV.)

So essentially the DVD is free.

I picked up the double cd today....great song selection and package. Well worth it...to be able to get the DVD too for the same price I paid at BB for the double cd would been a home run....great deal

Wuhoo! I was debating getting either of those, but for 7.50 each it's a no brainer!
Cheers!

Same deal for me as well with A9 - thanks OP. I wanted to get these 2 at some point, but sooner looks to be better than later (if it works!)

Thanks for the deal, but it's clearly a mistake. To make matters worse, the DVD is a pre-order. I ordered it and would be thrilled if it came through but I wouldn't be at all suprised if it gets cancelled.

(Also if I had found this deal I probably would have kept it quiet since the more orders are placed, the quicker it gets cannned and then the orders get cancelled -- but that's just me and I don't mean to sound ungrateful. Thanks for the info, I do hope this pans out for all of us, but I'm hanging onto my just-purchased Best Buy copy and receipt just in case.)

I too just ordered mine - thanks for the heads up! $14.99 delivered (except mine says won't even ship until 09-25 which is 13 days away!)... hope they don't catch what seems like it has to be an error!

Thanks Adboy151! I was just about to pick up the double album at Best Buy, but this is a much better deal. This forum is great!

Now the wait begins. historically they've always caught these mistakes after a few sneak through.

it appears that it won't work any more! in fact it looks like you can't even order the dvd at all! it says: Important Message
We're sorry. The item R.E.M. - When the Light is Mine... The Best of the I.R.S. Years 1982-1987 Video Collection is no longer available from the seller you selected

Yup, it looks like they caught the error due to the increased order activity. Does anyone know how long Amazon usually takes to let you know the order has been cancelled? My hope is that they let the orders that were placed earlier today go through.

The last time I was involved in one of these with Amazon, my order was canceled the next day (although they did offer me the opportunity to preserve my order at the corrected price).

I'm in my prime promo still, so I picked free 2 day shipping and "as soon as possible"...they already shipped my CDs apparently. EDIT: to be clear, and NOT the DVD.

Surely it's not acceptable for them to not send the DVD and charge me the full $14.99?
After all, I've got the confirmation email that says my total is 14.99, and the Order Status page also still says "Grand Total 14.99"
Hmm.
I hope this isn't going to get troublesome...I'm willing to accept them catching the error and refusing, but this seems like it could almost get fraudulent...especially since I can't cancel the DVD since it is "being prepared for shipment"...hmmmmmmm...
