Misprice?? Miami Vice - Series 1 (Eight Discs) (Box Set) (DVD)

Synopsis: The pulse and rhythm of a glamorous resort is juxtaposed against the steamy haunts of the drug underworld in this groundbreaking action series. Two cops from different backgrounds – street-smart New Yorker 'Rico Tubbs' and stubble-faced southerner 'Sonny Crockett' team-up up to take on Miami's underworld.

Thanks funnymoney. Good deal +++

These guys have a knack for publishing the wrong prices and not carrying out mispriced orders.

If we use quidco do we still get paid even if they don't honour the deal??
[mod]#4
There are some others too like shrek 1&2 and Clint Eastwood box sets, good hunting ;-)
#5
Just looking at T&C's on 101 and noticed this.

8.2
The price you pay for goods is as shown on our web site at the time you order excluding postage and packing fees, where applicable.

Haven't been through all of them tho. T&C's always seem confusing!

Anyway, just thought i'd try and help!

8 disc boxset for £4.95 - worth a try. Cheers.
#7
What about if you pay via paypal? If they don't honor it will they just refund you back on paypal?

I just went to 101 via quidco, searched for Miami Vice, and came up with this...

http://www.101cd.com/detail.aspx?productid=279785

If you go via the link on here...

http://www.101cd.com/detail.aspx?productid=1503477&asptnr=9691

Hmmm....2 different things! The £4.95 is only 1 disc, where as for £54.99, you get 8 discs...

Anyone help me out here!?
#9
Good spot but I doubt its 1 disc as there is no 1 disc version. Also it does say 8 discs in the title. Looks like they have made 2 mistakes ;-)

Yes Quidco do honor the cashback.
I ordered the Captain Scarlet Boxset, only to be told ' we made a mistake'
(they do not honor orders, they just cancel):shock:

I recently received a refund for an item I paid for by credit card via paypal and paypal stuck the refund into my paypal account which was a pain in the @ss as I have no bank account associated with the account.

So No chance is this going to be accepted!!!

Especially if people start ordering them 10 at a time. Why not? Because it sets alarm bells ringing and destroys the bargain for everyone.

When you people realise there is certainly one fact to bear in mind and possibly a second factor to take into consideration.

1. Most, and possible all, major online retailers have software that monitors sales. If an item suddenly is selling significantly more than normal (this is monitored by control charts and special event monitoring software) then an alert, normally an email or sms is sent to real person who will then check what is going on. These people may even be homeworkers, but they are on call 24 hours a day to protect their business from errors and eceptions, and they can make a decisiona s to whether action is required or not. If, as in this case, there is a pricing error then they put processes in place tp implement their T&Cs.
So the moral of this part is that as soon as someone posts a "deal" such as this on this type of forum, the cat is out of the bag so to speak and these processes kick in. It then up to a responsible person at the retailer to decide if it is to be allowed or not.

2. Being a cynical kind of guy, I am now becoming more convinced that some less scrupulous retailers are using forums like this as a means to free exposure / advertising. they slip in a little titbit and hope it gets noticed. Then there website appears here and gets loads of exposure. Maybe they also get a few estra sales.
The Dixons Plasma fiasco yesterday I think was either a disgruntled employye who had inplanted a "time-bomb" or their systems may even have been hacked - or even DSG upto dirty tricks - as if they would of course!

I have to admit I do sometimes wonder how these things get spotted in the first place. In this case, the odds of a) someone searching for Miami Vice on DVD and b) being a member of this forum in order to post the 'deal' must be quite slim.

This useless company continues to make pricing errors. I've had 4 orders cancelled with them in the last month alone!

If they purposely do errors hoping that it would gain them some publicity then they really have no idea how to build up a good reputation.

I will never use this pathetic excuse for a retailer ever again.

I agree, not used them before and won't be using them again - useless!

Trick me once, shame on you.
