An Olympus digital camera from Tesco for 1p is probably my best. I've had headphones and various other things from Tesco for a penny as well.
I go through the self till now after having a few things taken off me, I put the money in quick so when they realise while taking the tags off I already have a receipt, the only way they are getting it back then is by wrestling it from my cold dead hands.
I've been stopped by security and had numerous bust ups with the staff but once I've got a receipt they've got no chance lol.

They put the game on the shelf where the first edition was obviously meant to be. I played it cool and got it for a fiver I think it was meant to be £34
£5 games from Asda aren't misprices, they're "toxic stock" reductions and are store specific. Yes, they're stupid prices but they're deliberate, not mistakes.

1p items from Tesco aren't misprices. Staff are usually meant to remove them from the shelves but the pricing isn't a mistake and if a customer finds one the official line is they are to allow the sale.

instore? Has to be the cheap 360 games a few years back. They were scanning between £2-£3 but still shelf stickered at their usual prices, went in with the hand scanner, got about 20, straight down CEX and made over £250.

Online, has to be Tesco selling the Xbox One S and COD WW2 for £40 Made even better as I got 2 copies of cod delivered

Mine was an Asda balls up. Happy they had someone who knows nothing about games stacking the shelf ...
I got charged 3 times for one printer in Tesco, it crashed the tills twice and I was assured I hadn’t been charged. When I checked the bank I complained to the manager and got a £50 voucher (printer only cost me £10 in the end!!!)
Dead space 2 just released for PS3.

I went in Block busters and bought dead space 1 for £3-5 as I never played it and then wanted to buy or rent #2.

Walked out the shop checked my game just to see the cd condition.

Turned out they accidentally gave me Dead space 2 in the wrong case.

So got a £40 week old game for £3-5. Ended up buying ds1 from Game a day later for roughly same cost.

Not sure if you'd count that as a miss price.
