amazon mis pricing ?

12
Found 2nd Mar
am wondering how likely amazon are to honour a product that is an obvious mis price
for example , advertised at say £5 when the real price should be £25 ?
is it a definite yes or no or would i be in the ''lap of the gods'

Come on fess up, what is it?


the first rule of discussing an amazon misprice is don't talk about the product in question
the second rule is the same as the first

the third rule is bragg about it big time if it works or if rejected then pretend you never ordered it

I've had five cancelled this week - six in the last month. They used to offer compensation/Prime extensions, but even that has dried up. Still worth popping an order in as they do slip through - perhaps don't post it as a deal though.

thanks for the info , i've put in an order in hope more than anything , i guess the more people that jump on the price ,the less chance there is of it being honoured , nothing ventured nothing gained

How do people find the misprices?
I am subscribed to three camels RSS feed for top drops but they haven't given me one misprice yet.
What methods do people use to find them?

Thanks in advance
I ordered a cctv camera last year, should have been £60 but when I came to pay it only registered as £15. The camera was dispatched and arrived next day.

Clothing seems to be the most common department to find price anomalies in. I bought a running jacket last week for £14 - every other size bar mine was £80. My size went back up to £80 the day after I ordered. You can find some real price disparity between items of a different size. Example - anyone looking for an xl pair of running shorts? All sizes sold and dispatched by Amazon, yet xl are £7.44, whilst every other size is £30.
I generally do a low-high search on a number of items/keywords on a daily basis when I've got a few spare minutes. Found four pairs of Salomon trainers the other day at £3 per pair - should have been £103. Unfortunately they were cancelled, as was my £10 drum kit and Huewai watch.

I remember ordering some grill pads that were posted here by nihir. They were worth £6 but on checkout it came to 0.
HUKD soon removed nihir post but I saw it and ordered. Credit to Amazon who did deliver it. There are plenty of glitches
on Amazon especially those involving using a code. The Dorco razor handle and blade. £6.99 but with code it comes to 99p delivered. I even got a £1 Amazon Video credit for no rush service.

I have found lots of glitches elsewhere but can never find the Amazon by myself
They should do I have had 2 in the past . North face jacket worth £280 for £8 ! And husky fridge (Budweiser) for £15 . The secret is not to tell everyone until it’s delivered !

I've only been buying via Amazon since Xmas so had no idea how these things play out
