No, they won't. See http://cgi.dvdweb.force9.co.uk/ubb/F...ML/000052.html

They've already tried to weasel their way out of (at least) one order, and blamed it on "distributor error". And in spite of this, it's still up at that price. Don't bother; anyone with any sense knows perfectly well that no store (ESPECILLY not a UK one) will honour a misprice of this magnitude. 9 discs, retail price around 25 per disc... yeah, you really do stand a chance of getting them all for 16

Yeah, but order confirmation constitues a legally binding agreement, so they can't get out of it and be on the right side of the law. Now normally, the e-tailer would rely on people not suing due to the low value, but for once, the value of the potential offer might even be worth it.

Ah, what the hell. Worst that happens is I've got an 18 charge on my card that I have to dispute. Hell, even if they only try and send me one DVD, I can return it for more than that much in store credit...

Cheers for the info on this.
I really hope they come good, but i remember a few years ago, there was a misprice on the Argos website for TVs, instead of 300, they said 3. Everyone placed orders and said it was binding on Argos. But the courts said no, so may be hard for us to stick them to this.
Here's hoping though...

Hmm, got my confirmation email. I think their confirmation emails must be the work of many lawyers, since on close (and legally pedantic) inspection, it's debatable as to WHAT it actually confirms... However, this person on the other forum that I posted a link to ordered almost a week ago and has been in touch with them a couple of times, so they've not really got any excuse for still having them up at that price... Have to wait and see what happens...
