    If they come back saying you can't be sold it for the price quoted, they'll refund you the cost, but I *think* I'm right in saying that they don't have to refund the postage costs.

    So, £4.50.

    they can't charge you more than they are advertising it for. they will cancel your orders and say that it was a misprice most likely. however if they take the money from your account then they are obliged to sell it to you at that price.

    i dont think anythings to lose. they cant charge you delivery if they are not deliverying and if they say they are going to charge im claim false advertising.

    it cant be a msitake unless its a coincidence they did it on two different items.

    Anyone buying it should really print off the page and order form. Proof and all that jazz.

    I just ordered the 32gb. Amazon usually email you explaining the mistake and refund your card. If you read their T&C, they state that the sale isn't final until they send you the email. Plus, it's through another company so they may well go through with the sale. If not, no harm done.

    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...
    It isn't the case for either, has everyone forgotten about the tesco/argos 1p TVs?

    They'll refund you...

    Nope, they'll simply cancel the order so you won't lose anything.

    Was just browsing Amazon and came across this:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Apple-iP...=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

    A NEW iPod Touch 16GB for only £13.13?! :eek:
    Surely there's gotta be an error somewhere..
    If I bought this and the error was discovered would they legally be allowed to charge me the proper amount?
    Looks way too good to be true!
    I rang them, they are aware of the problem it seems. I wouldn't buy it if I were you.

    I done it. Hopefully there will be a chance it comes through.

    I'm really tempted, is it possible for them to charge me full price once I've already placed my order?

    Once the order is confirmed, according to T&C, they HAVE to sell it to you. So when they email you a dispatch notice, that's completion of the sale.

    They don't legally have to sell you anything

    It's their property, they've just put a price on it, offering you THEIR product at that price, they can sell you whatever price they want I believe. Once you enter a contract and agree a price then yes, it's different I believe

    The law is ambiguous but I'm pretty sure that's how it is
