The Play.com sale is now on, and on the product page this DVD is listed as £2.99. Not bad right?

But then if you add it to basket and go to checkout, it becomes only £1.99!!!

Bargain at that price for this amazing movie.
Hurry, stock will go quick or Play.com will realize their mistake!

Free shipping as always, and go through Quidco to get back 2%

I've just realized that even the £4.99 DVDs are reduced as well!

Bourne Supremacy for £1.99. Real bargain.

However, only works if you checkout one DVD at a time.

superb! ordered one! cheers

I've found out that this applies to ALL the DVDs in the sale section!!

The prices are all wrong, and the real sale prices are half of that on the website.

See my thread here: hotukdeals.com/for…420

It seems to apply to everything.

I added a £900 TV, and it knocked £3 off the price in the basket for no reason, think it's working on everything on their site - so lots of orders going to get cancelled, I'm sure!

ordered 2 more! thanks

Everything is cheaper. Not just that dvd.

yeah, friend just tried to order BioShock. Listed price £24.99, basket price £21.99

But looks like they've now taken the checkout process offline. If you click Checkout it says they are "doing essential maintenance"

Just tried this and when i get to checkout there's a message saying something about them performing essential maintenance on the site.

Probably found out what's been going on!

Oh god, not another Play misprice thread! :whistling:

Yeah. I wonder if they'll honor the orders placed successfully.

Damn, I should have been quicker to have a look around the main site as well!

I just bought the Bourne Identity and the Bourne Supremacy for £1.99 each before the checkout process went offline.

whats the chances of them honouring this?!?!?!:roll:

last king of scotland came up as £2.99 delivered but the esential site maintenance thing came up.

ah well theve found out bout it. managed to change a few of my pre orders to reflect the £3 price drop

We are currently performing essential maintenance and hope to have this completed in a few minutes.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Do you work for play.com?

boonkoh

Do you work for play.com?



No, sorry!

Mod for hukd and just copy and pasting the error message I was getting I have emailed my contact at play to see whats going on.

This thread brings back fond memories. The last time there was a major Play misprice I made a very good friend here. Anyone else wanna be my friend? :giggle:

Oh, voted hot by the way. Just for comedy value! :whistling:

Hot Fuzz came up as £3.99 in my basket and then changed to £6.21, so they are obviously sorting out the glitch. However Hot Fuzz for £6.21 del is still a pretty good price

Can't even get onto the Play site now pmsl.

Think we killed 'em?:giggle:

They've started an Autumn price crash, so something to do with that I assume. The site is back up

Back up, but you cant access your basket.....

Checkout working again.

But all prices have returned to normal now... :-(

Fixed.

Damn, I ordered a couple of things but forgot Quidco. So if they don't cancel I will, not in a position to lose that 16p:giggle: :w00t:

I just got the email to say layer cake has been posted.....

nice one! got it for £1.99 thanks to this thread

Ordered 4 DVDs and got 3 posted emails so far

Thanks

Same here - Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremacy both posted out to me this morning for a cool £1.99 each.

Result!

yup, same here!

Good to see that Play.com are honouring their mistake orders.

I shudder to think how much they lost on the bigger ticket items like TVs...
