BOGO free at amazon

http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000041151

I added Soap season 3 and 4 to my cart and it ended up doing the promo for both and only charging me the $3.97 shipping.

so i tried it again with 2 married with children seasons and it did it again.

is it a mess up and they are gonna turn around and charge me full price or will they just charge the 3.97

I think I figured out what it is doing. It is taking off the price of the cheapest dvd in the order twice.

I can't say what they will do but I know they will notice. I can see the abuse factor of this being very large, very fast..... I only purchased titles I wanted and was ready to pay the B1G1 price they listed. I just wish they had S3 of Forever Knight on the sale.

That's what I did. My orders came out to $1-$3 so it didn't look TOO bad.

That's good advice, mix and match different prices or add an extra small item.

Ah, so this is why I couldn't sleep. Crazy if this goes through. I'm trying to recall how Amazon deals with mistakes like this...
