I have just received an email from AMAZON saying it has been cancelled and sorry of the inconvenience! (see below) Im getting hot for the wrong reasons! I seem to be experiencing this more and more. Something is offered then it is taken away.
I need cooling down with rational thoughts.

Has anyone out there had the same problem?
What's the law about this?
Any thoughts would be really helpful for me and the community.
All the best,

You have no rights unfortunately.

No contract was made, it was an invite to pre-purchase

You only have a case if they take payment for the item.

It was definite misprice so never expect them to work out (although some do, like amazon xbox360 elite deal).

Just keep buying and one day, the misprices will carry on

+1 contract is made when money is taken & goods dispatched (EXCEPT TESCO :x who took all the money immediately for the gold ring mis-price then took 2 weeks to refund !! :x )

99p , as if, they was going to sell it to you !!!............... i had soooo many mispriced items cancelled from different companies i don't get upset any more!!!!.............:cry:

Invitation to treat and not an offer to sell. Unless you provide a form of consideration you have not contracted.

So many misprices are cancelled, it's not worth getting mad about. I just count it as a bonus if they send the items out now. :)

The law says GET OVER IT :w00t:
