Probably the wrong place for this, but the original thread got deleted, and I wanted to thank the OP. Seems like I always miss out on the price errors.

I searched for the thread when I got my shipping notice a few days ago with no luck!

Thanks OP!

I really expected my order for this to get cancelled - but I just received a shipping notice this afternoon.

A big "thanks" to the OP!

And rogue .... as I recall, the thread disappeared within hours of first being posted - a very small window of opportunity on this one.

Actually, I believe it was deleted within minutes of being posted.

My thanks to the OP also!

Also... a big to Overstock.com for honoring these orders!

I'm just curious, but... why? Are some misprices not allowed to be posted?

Reading this thread makes me want to cry. I wish I had been fast enough to catch the first thread.

i think someone here warns the OP to remove it so it don't
hit other sites where it will be abused to the point all orders are killed

Al is probably right when he says that the thread was deleted within minutes - and it may have been because the price was corrected at Overstock within minutes, and the OP figured it should be deleted at once rather than wait for a mod to add "dead" to the title. When I saw the thread, there were only about 3 responses so far.

I saw the thread, went to the site, placed the order, returned to DVD Talk to post a "thanks" and the thread was gone. I then went back to Overstock to email the item link to a friend, and the price was already corrected.

This was definitely one of those "now you see it - now you don"t" things.

Same here. I saw the deal (misprice) posted, went to overstock.com, ordered it, and then couldn't even find the thread again to post a "thanks." Got my shipping e-mail the other day.

Same here. I've never even watched the show, but for $9.xx shipped, I figured there wasn't much to lose. I'd be willing to trade my copy (once I receive it, got my shipping confirmation this morning) to anyone who wants it, just send me your trade list at [email protected] . I'd be willing to 'send first' to long-term members/gold-traders.

Who else received that Overstock Joan of Arcadia misprice? (DEAD)

I could not find the original thread, for some reason...but I actually received my Joan of Arcadia S1 set.

It was mispriced at under $10 at Overstock a couple months ago, and I was figuring that they would just cancel the order. Well...I got it in the mail this afternoon. I know that a few others got in on this deal when I posted it, I was just wondering if they had their orders cancelled, or if they received it as well.

I think you are right with this one. I think that I did just remove the thread when the price was corrected. It was literally within 10 minutes of me posting it. This was the exact time when the set was added to the site, and we got lucky. If I remember correctly, there were a couple others that were listed at the same price , but did not allow you to check out at that price.
I am glad others got in on this deal before it was swept under the carpet, so to speak.
