I have an amazing price error with Play.com, should I post and risk not recieving it?

If I post loads of orders will go through, some greedy so and so's will order 40 of them and they will reject all orders or should I keep my order of 1 and wait and see if I receive it?

keep it to yourself until you recieve then post it, that way at least one person gets the deal

personally, i would order it first then wait till it dispatched, then post. Otherwise the greedy sods you get around here will buy daft amounts to ebay, then no one will benefit, especially not you.

I think u've just made a lot of people curious to see what it is.. also i am going to go randomly have a look hahaha.

your choice really, u know the risk and the fact that unless it is being dispatched play can always cancel the purchase for whatever reason

I had a great price error honoured on play.com recently for Windows 7 at £11, posted it on here and they got lots of orders some of which were cancelled, however I recevied mine.

Looks like the overall opinion is keep it to myself until received.

Go on, send a few of us a PM!!

You've got everybody intrigued now, giv us a clue :-P

I agree!

I would keep it to yourself until your order has gone through and then if you want post it or PM it to whoever you want.

There has been deals posted on here before that have been price error and some stupid people then phoned the companies to see if it was true and ruined it for everyone instead of keeping quiet and seeing if they got it!

Hope it works out for you!! Im always looking out for a good bargin but unfortunately some people who look at this site but dont post/register ruin it for quite a lot of people

I think it all makes sence, wait till posted then inform all.

Hold fire until you have a dispatched email. Fingers crossed this will be Monday. Then you can post and we can all take advantage.

Very true, I don't understand why you can't just get one of the item and just enjoy it i'm sure you can find money other ways.

But yeah keep us updated OP i'm curious to know too
Edited by: "Met-Cast" 26th Sep 2010

hate threads like this, like saying to some i know this and that but i cant tell you, wwll why say out in the first place... grr lol..

me me me im a good girl.

i wouldnt tell anyone, theres too many greedy people on here that cant just order 1 and get a bargain, they have to spoil it all by ordering 50, stupid t**ts ruining it for everyone

Hot deals and misprices generally last for a limited time irrespective of posted in HUKD or not. Its very kind of so many members posting it on here as and when they know, keeps the site going. There will be always someones who abuses it and buys in bulk though, can't help it. However if everyone who spots a deal waited to get their order before posting it on here, this site will soon become ColdUKDeals, just a thought.

Saying that posting your deal or not is entirely upto you OP.

If it goes through and is as good as you say you should reveal clues so the amount of orders is staggered over those that can be bothered to work it out (until someone just posts it).

i promise to only order one
OP if you d decide to share, i would appreciate a pm. thanks

How about a category? If it is women's clothes I won't be ordering any!

Go on let it out please....

wait till its dispatched

thanks for the PM OP I've just ordered 50 of them to sell on ebay

I ll try to analyze....If the Op think poeple can order 40, then I am assuming its not electrical or something costing about say £100.... I ll try snuff it out...

Sharks circling!! ALERT

Keep it to yourself nwr.

Post to tell us what it was - out of interest - when you've got it.
