EXPIRED - Super Mario Galaxy Game Guide (Wii) - Preorder for £0.54 + postage at Amazon

38
Found 24th Aug 2007
Super Mario Galaxy Collector's Edition (Prima Official Game Guides) (Paperback), 256 pages, due out on 12 November 2007.

This looks like a mis-price, but may be worth a try.

It is 0.54 pence plus £2.75 post and packing, unless you add it to a £15 order to get free delivery.

When I ordered one, it says it will be dispatched soon, despite the 12 November relesase date!

Amazon have now added a £29.45 sourcing fee! Though, the guide mentioned in post 4 is still 55p without this stupid fee.

You can also get "Deluxe Pokedex: Prima Official Game Guide" preordered for 55p, if you want to combine that with the Super Mario Galaxy guide order!

Link to it is ]http//ww…-18

Combined this with my £39.99 special edition GTA order.

Amazon + Misprice = Too much hastle

Yes indeed....:-(

To me it always = vouchers.

ordered out of interest.
do Amazon not honour misprices (like this) then from past experience anyone?
Off topic (slightly) - can't wait from the AAA Wii titles to start flowing over the next couple of months. Wooooooht!!

:: Edit -> Cheers gary_rip

eugh you don't want to ruin the game by using a guide

if you get stuck then there is gamefaqs free on the net, dont just follow the guide to complete it

do Amazon not honour this then from past experience anyone?

lol

If i get a £5 voucher out of them ill still be happy

Oredered, i never get any vouchers though. I have ordered misprices before never got anywhere with them though.

How do you get the vouchers?

This is a good price. However, I've lost faith in Pre-ordering anything from Amazon. I've now lost count of the number of times i've pre-ordered a game and they've messed up my order. Normally they simply increase the price before taking the money and then despatching the game. Or they simple leave it in a never ending state of limbo where it's showing in my orders but never being processed or despatched.

I can see it now...

No way are they allowed to do this, i'm gonna get onto trading standards … No way are they allowed to do this, i'm gonna get onto trading standards and sue their ass! They entered into a contract by accepting my pre-order!!



.. wait, maybe thats only on MSE I see them after mis-prices.

:roll: :whistling:

Well when that LCD tv came up on there site for like £30 a couple months back, they cancelled it, n they didnt even consider a voucher or anything.

depends who you speak to...

Just noticed that when I went back to check my orders - I am sure that wasn't there when I first placed it in my basket. It is not shown on my order summary.

my thoughts exactly, wasnt there before, now cancelled order

EDIT: this deserves a sign :!:

yep... look!! its £30 now...........
My order in 'my account' still lists it ias 54p + 2nd class delivery. new orders are now at £29.99.

]http//ww…3X/

I ordered this along with the deluxe pokedex for 55p and it's still showing as the regular price in my account, hopefully I got it in time but I doubt Amazon will honour this :-(

I was going to order this but noticed the £29 odd sourcing fee. Strange - not taking a risk on this one. Voting cold due to sourcing fee - sorry.

The sourcing fee was not on there originally, and has been added by Amazon recently. May-be it was triggered, as the book is now a number 18 best-seller!

I checked the order that I did before this fee was added, and it is still at £3.29.

The guide in Post 4 is currently without a sourcing fee.

Well surely they cant charge this £29.50 sourcing fee. The RRP isnt that much.

EDIT:

I emailed amazon to see if id be charged for this silly source fee, they replyed :

I got cancellation email from Amazon



same here:-(

Me too :-(

I ordered the pokemon deluxe guide that's coming out in November for 55p with the Mario guide, and I got the e-mail saying that the Mario guide has been cancelled as it was a misprice. But the pokemon guide has not been cancelled yet on their website they have put the price of it up to £11:? Hopefully I'll get the pokemon guide but I doubt it.

Sloth/Mod

Mine got cancelled too. :lol:

Oops, did i laugh. Is it not compulsary to now rant and say i'm going to sue their ass for cancelling. :giggle:

Cancelled too. Worth a try as always

Complained via email and got an email back more-or-less saying sorry but it is in there Ts & Cs! They do hope I will order again in the future though

Anyone complained enough to get a voucher on this one?
