when i worked at the works we had a £60 book priced up as 60p (rrp) to be reduced down to £9.99! so the supposed RRP was pence rather than quite a few pounds... :oops:

    Fake reviews then?

    I received this reply from HMV (despite their pre-order price gurantee)

    Dear HMV Customer

    We are writing to you in relation to your order for the following item:

    Cat.No: 711719925255 Barcode: 711719925255
    Title : GO EXPLORE

    We are very sorry, but it has come to our attention that the item appeared
    on our web site with the incorrect price of £27.99, instead of £99.99. We
    will not therefore process your order.

    The terms and conditions governing our online sales state that your order
    is only accepted, and a contract between us formed, when HMV receive
    payment for the goods you have ordered. HMV have not yet taken payment for
    the goods listed above, nor taken the final step of confirming the shipment
    of your order to you by email (please see point b. in the section entitled
    ‘The Contract Between US’ on the first page of our Terms and Conditions.
    We are therefore under no legal obligation to sell the item to you at the
    incorrect price.

    Please accept our sincere apologies for this error. We don’t like having
    to take this course of action, and apologise that we have had to do so in
    this instance.

    If you would still like to order the item at the retail price of £99.99,
    you may do so via the HMV web site.

    Kind Regards,

    HMV Online Customer Service Team
