    No, no harm at all.
    Apart from the complete bankruptcy of a small company and redundancy of all it's employees, just for one mistake. All for you to get your cheap iPod. :rolleyes:
    It's a tough world out there, baby.

    In fact, I've already got an iPhone - I'll just be selling the 15 I ordered on to ebay + laughing my head off at the crazy profit margins whilst you weep away.

    I honestly don't think this will cause bankruptcy-compared to the amount of money they must make selling what they sell.

    I'm pretty sure they won't go bankrupt because of this :yep:
    Oh yeah I agree, just pointing out to the daddy's boy that if they somehow went bankrupt, you're not gonna be able to 'sue' them to get your ipods lol =]

    You'd be surprised by the fine margins required to compete in consumer electronics. But you're right that it won't cause bankruptcy as nothing will happen

    Well Amazon is about to take my monies on one of the two orders as one of them just bounced back as I used an old card. All sorted now and we'll see how it progresses from here!

    Edit: Money has been taken from my account.

    Something like this happened a few weeks ago - it was on the BBC News site. I believe all the orders stood - and (before the fix) there were a lot of them :lolwut:
    That was for some Albums. For the sake of their reputation they fulfilled the order.

    From your evident idiocy, I take it you missed out on the offer?

    Shame.
    No, I just think it's stupid when people like you think that you are legally entitled to a mispriced iPod because of some line in an email. It was an error and they didn't intend to sell it to you at that price. They will cancel your order.

    What are you going to do? Sue them? Do you know anything about law? :rolleyes:

    Wow! I would have thought they legally have to sell it to you for the price it's being advertised at? I think that's the case on the high-street. Not sure if it's the same online...
    Nope - not the case. they have it in the small print.

    the customer doesnt lose out anything f they cancel the order, just back to where they started

    I was more refferring to the expenses that would arise from a court case.

    Besides, people have gone and ordered hundreds of them in the hope of selling them on, essentially cleaning their entire stock out.

    If they were to go on with all those sales, they'd be loosing thousands of pounds and since they only trade on Marketplace, I'm guessing they must be a small business so they won't be able to take financial hits like that.
