    Everyone knew that an iPod would never realistically sell for £13.13; if you want to start talking morals, 'oh but they must sell for the advertised price!' then it's probably a little immoral to start costing them £200 per order, no?

    Probably has been said, but cba reading the entire discussion...

    It honestly doesn't matter whether it's a genuine mistake or not - the point is it was still advertised. And tbh, the more people who complain, the better. They don't want a whole mob of people coming at them, they have a reputation they want to maintain, so you can always try and do something about it.
    Giving back 13 quid because of a pricing error isn't going to hurt their reputation.

    lol their own terms and conditions state that if they charge you a price it will stay that price even if its an error

    they should think through their conditions more

    Um yes it does.
    It may not in the eyes of the law and stuff but people do actually act according to some idea of morality. If it was an honest mistake, you should just let it go.

    You'd be pissed off if you ended up a slave because you left the price tag on your t-shirt and someone bought you :p:

    I'm complaining because I've had my damn money taken from my account. Fine if they wanted to cancel the order but not when money has physically been taken from me.

    can't believe some people still have got the nerve to try to fight for them, insisting on that they indeed should have been sent the £13/£8 iPods :rolleyes:

    you won't get them. there is no obligation for the store to send it. they won't do this, they don't care if you're not gonna go back to them TBH (especially if you "bought" £4'000 worth of iPods - would you have ever spent that much on Amazon in your entire life? doubt so).

    OK - if you've got the time and will and money - fight, file a lawsuit or whatever, but I'm pretty sure that you're unlikely to get anything. There was a possibility they might do this for the very first, single-item orders. But they haven't (or all the TSR orders came too late - we don't know :confused:). So, yeah - as someone stated here already, bottom line - the store might refuse selling you the item (i.e. providing you with services), just like every other retailer or service provider might, without stating the reason for it.

    If someone fights their way through to their iPod - please let us know, it's gonna be actually worthy of being written about in a national newspaper, but - as I've said - I seriously doubt that it happens. :yep:

    EDIT: before you bring the hell on Amazon, phone your credit card company and make sure the money has indeed been charged. I for that matter have a credit card with NatWest and it takes up to 3 days (or even more in some cases) for the account balance and recent transactions to be updated on my On-Line Banking. Not sure if it's standard it doesn't come up immediately, but if so, you might have had as well your money refunded already, but it could not have appeared on your account balance yet. :yep:

    24. Events beyond our reasonable control

    We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond our reasonable control.
    This condition does not affect your statutory rights.
    If the problem was caused by a software glitch (I think someone posted this earlier?) that is certainly beyond their 'reasonable control'. They have thought through their T&C.


    To all those still hoping you'll get your iPod: you won't.

    Ditto. Although my version of polite is never all that polite and has subtle undertones of rudeness. Just like my email to ASOS the other day who clearly hire ******* monkeys as their customer service people as in response to my anger about the stock error and errors within my order, I got an email thanking me for my email about returning my goods?!?!?! WTF.

    Not easily they won't. You're missing the fact that they think that no one has been charged. If it's showing on their end that no one has been charged, it's more hassle.

    "Please read these conditions carefully before using the Amazon.co.uk website. By using the Amazon.co.uk website, you signify your agreement to be bound by these conditions."

    I imagine that whether you buy from "real" Amazon or from a reseller, you're still bound by the T&C I quoted above

    (found http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/cust...nodeId=1040616 here by the way).

    It says they apply across the whole Amazon.co.uk website.

    I'm not sure that anyone knows exactly what they know. I don't even think that they have enough iPods to satisfy the demand when the price went so low.

    They said in the email that none of us have been in charged so we can be pretty certain of that :shifty:
