Thanks to Bookie, who started this hunt, several misprices have been spotted on the Virgin Megastores website for pre-order dvds due out on the 10th of Sept.

So I though we could start a thread with a list of them.

1. Law & Order SVU - Series 4 = £9 (Spotted By Bookie)
2. Spooks Series 5 = £9 (Spotted by Bristol Deal)
3. Simpsons - Series 10 (spotted by little ern)

If you search the sites there are some more all due out on the 10th of Sept and priced at £9!!!!


These aren't super bargains, but I would of thought they would honour these, as it is only a saving of a few pounds

1. Meet The Robinsons dvd = £9
2. Factory Girl dvd = £9


I am looking for more, so I will update the list


Becoming Jane dvd is also £9 http://www.virginmegastores.co.uk/product/783841/Becoming_Jane/s.jsf

I just tried to order some of the voyager and spooks sets and during the order process recieved an error.
When I look at my account area, it shows the order as being placed.
I doubt they will be honoured :(

I ordered Voyagers, but they kept disappearing from my basket. I finally managed to get it through though.

#22
All seem to have had their prices changed now......
#23
They've gone - someone at Virgin must have to keep an eye on this site!! Still, got them lots of new customers didn't it?

Typical, I bet they are typing the cancellation email, as we speak!!!!
#25
Had card problems as well :-(
#26
One more thing, guys. I've had video games from here on back order and it's their policy to cancel all back orders if they're not fulfilled within a month.

Therefore, it's possible that these will be cancelled just before their release date, since it's a month and 3 days before then.

Could have just been a cynical ploy to make us all go to their site...

Here's hoping some of us make it through the net though!
#27
mine all gone through but all but one say in progress. 1 does say on back order.

Just checked out the Terms and Conditions on the site and it states:

We reserve the right to alter product prices on the website to reflect any increase in the cost of the products for reasons beyond our reasonable control, this may include (but is not limited to) pricing mistakes, tax or other duty increases.

Whilst we make every effort to ensure that all prices on our website are accurate and up to date sometimes errors do occur and the prices stated are incorrect.


Ts and Cs let them off the hook I'm afraid and in most cases are iron and legally clad. Espically as they are mostly preorder stuff ... :(
#29
I think everyone knew that really - now we've just got to hope the flaming torches and pitchfork mob don't come out when the orders get cancelled...
#30
you have to be in it to win it, i placed an order for 2 things, the simpsons for me and the spooks one for the motherinlaw as a thankyou for being a none typical mother in law.
i wont be heart broken if i miss out, not like the ebayer brigade who will have done some quick calculating and worked out which ones to order 100 of. they will be having to cancel orders and will state to the customer " an unexpected incident happened where all stock was destroyed/lost/stolen" .
#31
dayam. checked the site this morning was a tenner for Law & Order SVU series 4 set, at noon it was back at original price.
#32
I have just got a cancellation email
#33

me too!
#35
and me there far too quick with these misprices thesedays:)
#36
For those who got cancelled orders - did you order more than one of that item?

I ordered one of each of the voyager series, except I accidentally put 2 of the first series in my basket. They have cancelled the order for it, but series 2-7 still show on back order on my account, and have not yet been cancelled.

I wonder if this means they are cancelling anyone who ordered more than one of any one item?

I only ordered one (of Law & Order) but I also in another transaction ordered 1 x Meet The Robinsons & Chicken Little set and they haven't cancelled that yet, so maybe they are working through the titles or maybe some split through the net.

Anyone else that order 1 x Law & Order did you get a cancellation email or am I just unlucky



EDIT: They have just cancelled by Meet the Robinsons/Chicken Little dvd. My sister just texted me and they cancelled her order. She only ordered 1 dvd and it was "Becoming Jane" dvd at £9 (only saving about £2 from other retailers) and they even cancelled that!!!!!!

Just thinking do these kind of websites actually stop us getting the misprices?? For example when we find a misprice we post it here and depending on the size of the misprice hundreds then follow suit and order.

However if we kept it to ourselves and we were the only ones that ordered the product would the order be processed as a goodwill gesture as the company would not be losing too much money on these transactions??? Just a thought!!!

By the way I've not received my cancellation email for the simpsons DVD so fingers crossed!!:whistling:

I think so. Before this site appeared I used to post on a very small site and if I ordered a misprice it would usually be honoured, however now anything posted at the smaller site will posted be up on this site within minutes and instead of maybe 10 people ordering several hundred will try to get there order in.

There does seem to be an increase of retailers making mistakes especially Virgin and Amazon. Still we all knew that these bargain were unlikely to work so no harm done.

Yeah, all cancelled for me now!! Aw well :)
