Might be a misprice so get in quick!

Curb Your Enthusiasm stars 'Seinfeld' co-creator Larry David as himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life. Shot in a verite style and featuring celebrities playing themselves, the episodes are improvised by the actors from an outline created by David. The series also stars Cheryl Hines as David's wife Cheryl, Jeff Garlin as David's manager Jeff and Susie Essman as Jeff's wife Susie.

The seventh season finds Larry continuing to cope with the aftermath of his separation from Cheryl, even as his life remains intertwined with Loretta Black (Vivica A. Fox) and her family.

It’s gone up when i click on the link now. Glad I ordered it before; hopefully the lucky few who ordered will get it!
#14
pretty....pretty....pretty good.

shame that I was and idiot instead f just buying it when I had it on screen at 4.95 I thought I would then log out and then log back in to get quidco.

Now £15 odd.

Ill wait til its under a tenner.

shame I missed it
#15
I must have ordered at almost exactly the same time they changed it. Still, my order confirmation email says £4.95, so fingers crossed!

They clocked it almost immediately so it would be nice if they took the hit for the sake of custom.

EDIT: Hahaha, flexiblefish - that's exactly what I did (quickly logged into Quidco for that extra few pence off), but I just made it.

I placed an order for 5 copies of the DVD, priced at £4.95, received a confirmation email to say total order cost is £24.75, however online, in my account it says total order price £80. Rang up Zaavi, spoke to a kid there who rudely told me that they can change the price at any time and you have to pay the new price. I said, no, I have the confirmation, so he spoke to the buying team, came back to me and said it was an error in the system and they are cancelling my order. It would appear it is in their terms and conditions they can cancel an order whenever they like, as they don't bill you until they despatch the item. Oh and he said all of the orders will be cancelled, under a 'mass cancellation' due to a pricing error. They are now being sold at £16 and have changed the status to 'out of stock'! Crafty huh?

Is that fair? Can they legally do that even though it's in their T&C's?

Still says £4.95 on my account and confirmation, maybe if you had only gone for one you would have slipped under the radar.

All online sellers have the right to cancel an order before it’s dispatched, covers them for miss prices, annoying i know!

I was buying 5 as I wanted a copy, and so did some other family members. Didn't want to pass up on a bargain. Maybe they won't cancel all of the orders, however the guy said they would.

more like you wanted one for yourself and the rest to sell on. Thanks to you none of us will probably get it now. nice one
#22
"Awaiting Stock Pick" too, seems like a good sign to me!
#23
Apparently, they never had any stock to begin with?? Strange I know.

Sell them on? I've got better things to do with my time than try to make £30. I love Curb and so do my family. I apologise if my order has caused this problem, however the price had gone up before I actually ordered it. In my confirmation screen before I clicked submit, it said total order £24.75, then above it, DVD price £15.95. There is no law against buying 5 copies of a DVD at a good price!

Also, Zaavi told me over a 1000 had been ordered today alone, so I doubt me ordering 5 started the alarm bells really!

It's people like you that ruin these one off's for the rest of us. Maybe if you weren't stupidly greedy ordering five of them then you wouldn't need to complain and then they would probably honour this misprice. Idiot.

That's a little uncalled for. I think your tone is a far greater problem. I too don't like people ordering way more than they need to sell on for profit (I'm not saying that's what you're doing flyingguy) but nothing good will come out of a thread argument.

I agree, no good will come of it, but it will keep me entertained in work so please bicker away!
#29
I wouldn't have posted if I thought this would happen. Even if I hadn't ordered 5, do you really think they would have let this slip when the pickers notice orders for hundreds of the same DVD? Anyway, I already apologised if it was me that screwed it up for the masses but I highly doubt it. And if I was going to re-sell, I'd have ordered hundreds, not 5.

Under the Distant Selling regualtions 2000 they can legally do this, a contract is not digitally accepted until you receive a confirmation message from the supplier. however many of the suppliers tend to have written in their terms and conditions that the contract is not legally binding until they despatch the item.

You could email them back and tell them this is a breach of the advertising standards and therefore is a criminal offence to advertise something at a price they are not willing to honour. They'll probably just give you a 10% voucher off your next order, which is pretty rubbish to be fair!

...it's not really the fact that you ordered 5 copies that narks people, it's that you phoned them up and so alerted them to the pricing mistake...cardinal sin around here and you deserve all the abuse you get!:x;-)
#32
yeah, to be honest, I thought it was too good to be true to begin with, and given that the price changed before I submitted the order, I kind of expected it wouldn't go to plan.

Well Krinkle I think you haven't read what I later wrote. The price had changed before I ordered it so I think they got wind of it already perhaps? You can give me all the abuse you want, but I suspect there will be a few others calling Zaavi when they realise their orders have been cancelled!

I'm not going to attack you for ordering a greedy amount. Nor am I going to criticise you for ringing up and possibly alerting more of their staff to the pricing error.

No.

Instead I'm going to have a jab at you for spelling Zavvi wrong. You ol' swine you are!

well plenty of things round here do come of when morons like yourself don't order more than a copy each and then ring them up. Pretty retarded to be honest. We've had TV's, Computers, Consoles etc all slide through the net here because most people who use this site have an IQ greater than 50.
#36
Has anyones order been dispatched? As on the Zavvi website it's now listed as 'Sold out' and you can't even order it anymore, the button has been greyed out.

So have they dispatched some of them and others will get theres when they get more stock or is everyones still sat at 'Awaiting stock pick'?

It's not a breach of advertising standards if it's an honest mistake. And certainly not a criminal offence.

Yeah but big companies would rather concede the point if it shuts the unhappy customer up. A letter would give even better odds of receiving either the dvd or more likely a 10% off or something like that.

The definition of invitation to treat, legal loophole shops use - "As a general rule, a display of goods at a fixed price in a shop window or on a shelf in a self-service store is an invitation to treat and not an offer. An offer may be made by a prospective buyer. At this stage, the retailer may accept or reject that offer.

"Similar principles would seem to apply where a supplier of goods or services indicates their availability on a website: that is, the offer would seem to come from the customer (eg. when he clicks the appropriate button) and it is then open to the supplier to accept or reject that offer."

ie even if the customer buys something for a lower price, it is up to the company whether they can charge that price or deny it, a lot of people dont realise this and think that if something shows at a price and the company isnt willing to give it for that they are legally entitled to it.
