you need to search for '500gb' and its at the bottom of the list

You can only preorder from the search results page the actual item page has no facility to preorder.

Look like a no-hoper.

Yeah, I was able to order. I have a feeling they are either getting rid of discontinued product, or we'll get e-mails saying it's not going to happen. If my order does go through that is a killer deal.

Got my order in but price just gone up to £59.99

Just got this in an email,

Dammit i thought i would go through quidco and while I was doing that they put the price up

I ordered 2 & paid via paypal. I've had confirmation email from paypal but nothing yet from maplins. Fingers crossed but not holding my breath, lol.

Likewise, through paypal....we shall see!!! Fingers crossed!!

Managed to get some in the basket before the price increased, so ordered at £9.99 each, but no confirmation e-mail yet.

Rep given for a great spot - this is what we want! Gets the adrenaline pumping!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! That'll teach me to not sit here for the whole day, constantly refreshing the page every few minutes

JUST GOT THIS EMAIL!!!!!

Dear Customer

I do want to begin by apologising for the administration error that had caused an incorrect price to be displayed for the 500GB Seagate Hard Drive, Maplin order code A67JK. This was noticed through our routine checks and we had amended the details as soon as possible.

Though we endeavour to ensure our prices are correct prior to these being displayed on our website, there may be from time to time errors that do occur because of the high volume of products.

We do want to apologise and assure you this was a genuine error and are currently in the process of cancelling the back order and will complete the refund of any monies paid. I do hope you are able to accept our sincere apologies and are sorry if this has caused any inconvenience.

Kind regards

i just got a dispatch email followed by a second dispatch email stating

Part Description Qty.===================================A67JK 500GB Seagate Ex HDD 1 -- item cancelled at your request. This completes your order.

was worth a try , im sure they coulda come up with a better reason tho since it wasnt cancelled at request lol and no email to say so either!

i got the same email, i wonder how long it will take to refund

Clearly a misprice originally they said in their original order confirmation

" Please note: once an order has been confirmed we cannot make any alterations
to the content of the order."

They realised a mistake was made and they automatically cancelled the order TYPICAL!!!

Just received another email from Maplin,

got the same email cancelled it any chance we can do some think to get it

Just had an "Order Confirmation" this morning saying, so got a bit excited thinking Maplin's may have decided to honour the deal, but it said that they were "currently out of stock" and on a back order - and that they'd charge me £279.96 for 4 of them!!

HOWEVER, I spoke to the customer service department and they have confirmed that they are cancelling the orders and they apologised for the second e-mail order confirmation going out and said just to ignore it.

Jeez, talk about making a bad situation even worse....

I got the same one as 'Guswold'. Recieved a bill for £209! Glad they are cancelling it now!! Phew!

anyone got there money back yet, i havent

My cousin bought 2 of these, as did i - i recieved the apologies email,

He phoned to check it out and complained, and after going up a few levels of senoirity he got a commitment from maplin that they would honour the price. Interesting.

Very interesting! I'd love to know how that pans out...

The chap I spoke to in customer services this morning said that they were preparing another e-mail to send to everyone - so I guess it's a question of "watch this space"!

got my refund, but also got a confirmation of order to be shipped after the first was cancelled but this one is at £69.99, well im not paying for it, let them send it

I paid via Paypal and received a refund this afternoon
