    MIS-PRICED item..Did you get them?

    I ordered the xbox360 wireless entertainment pack from tesco yesterday @ £33.24 ( It was showing that it included 2 games + wireless controller + THE ACTUAL X-BOX360!!!! ) I fully expect to NOT RECEIVE this but has anyone received anything they ordered that was an obvious mis-price?
    PLEASE post ANY "MIS-PRICE" item that you have ordered and received ( or even not received ) here..........Thank you..

    Is this one that you received? Just wondered if one person receives a mis-priced item do we all? OR does the company just send out a few to keep SOME people happy?

    Depends on the company, the amount of orders and the cost of the misprice to the company.

    Some people get them before the company realise

    Hiya,

    Read something about this about an hour ago in a news section of yahoo or aol or such. Anyway the gist of the report was that Tesco realised the misprice before any were despatched, they changed the price to the correct amount (£340ish) and will not be charging customers / fulfilling orders.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news


    EDIT.

    This wasn't the article I read but it has the same facts as far as I can remember.

    I recieved a 500GB external hard drive for £94 which should have been £194. This was ages ago when they had only just started doing 500gb ones. Not everyone received theirs, but i guess i was one of the lucky ones!

    Just gone in for the Targus Notepac Plus laptop mag from play at £2 (Has now gone back up to £36.99 now. Not xpecting to recieve it, but will be very happy if i do!

    Hehe 'REALLY HOT DEAL' would have been the understatement of the year if this had been honoured £300 discount (or about 1000% off) doesn't happen often on items that retail at £340 :giggle:


    Had quite a few mispriced items honoured (and Virgin/Zavvi have honoured the most although it takes them a long time) - I think the best was theHUT where I saw Harry Potter for the Wii listed at £3.97 ... I would have never ordered it otherwise but did at that price - they honoured my first order but cancelled the second (can't argue with that - suppose it was cheeky trying for 2). Ordered it on a Wednesday - it arrived Friday - played it for 30minutes (utter garbage) - listed on ebay and it sold the following day for £25.


    Quickest 'misprice' I've had honoured I think - might have been a rubbish game but £20 profit can't be sniffed at. I wasn't too disappointed when they declined my quidco payment of 19p or 20p or whatever :giggle: :thumbsup:

    I've had a few, the most recent was the Matrix HD DVD trilogy for 19 pounds from Amazon instead of around 50 pounds.

    I got a Chasseur cast iron pan from Amazon for £12 instead of £100 a few months ago. They corrected the price the next day and cancelled another order I'd placed and gave me a £5 voucher to apologise. :thumbsup:

    Very true ( but quite unfortunate!! ) I guess, with the tesco deal, I was just hoping not too many people ordered and tesco would consider it less hassle to send out the orders.....I was dreaming eh?

    Well someone greedily ordered 39 of them.

    I had the littlewoods laptop! for £164 instead of £664 but it was with a fight and some help from a very nice person off this site.

    I could do with finding a mis-price the same as this now ( having said that I bet we all could eh? )

    If the retailer took payment, then you just need to force them to honour your contract.

    I've had a few but the £2 bed from debenhams has to be my best purchase. I only did it for a laugh as i never thought i'd get it and i didn't want it as i've got a memory foam bed so when it arrived i gave it away to a friend who was moving............they thought i was sooooo generous. :giggle:

    Unfortunately I am pretty sure that tesco would not have taken payment until the goods were dispatched...nevermind....

    £2 for a bed is better than a "hot deal" it's SCORCHING and the best I have heard about so far.............

    The cast iron guarantee is when someone rings to ask if it is a misprice......

    I've had the Stargate series (from Amazon) for £7, and the Nexus bluetooth headset from Play for £3. Its all down to spotting the deal earlier enough. just luck really.

    I like both of your "avatars" could you please tell me how/where to design my own??
    GREADY people ordering more than one combined with at least one person if not more phoning up to CANCEL the order ( worried about £300+ plus being taken ) meant that we stood no chance of getting this deal...........such a pity. I look forward to the day when I can post details of an amazing mis-price I have received. As a side subject I must thank HUKD ( and all helpfull people within ) for all the infomation/deals etc. especially QUIDCO as I received my FIRST quidco payment yesterday.......THANK YOU :-D :-D

    I got an email yesterday confirming that I would not be getting my £2 laptop case from play.com
    My order for a wireless entertainment pack from virgin ( £18 for a wireless controller and forza2 game! ) has changed to "in progress" so my hopes are up on this one......

    received email yesterday saying it was a mis price and i wont be getting my virgin order of £18 for a wireless controller and forza2 game!

    I ordered what MUST have been a mispriced item from the Avon website a few weeks ago. It was the Naturals Vanilla & Soy Milk Shower Gel (which is gorgeous, by the way), priced at £0.25. Every other item in the range was at least £2.50!
    I bought 10 bottles for a total cost of £2.50. I notice now that the price for one bottle is £2.75....
