    I actually spoke on the phone with a human being. The be-all/end-all is that they will not honor the original price. She was very nice about it! Canadians - I love them.

    Thats great about Bullmoose. I think they are a good company so it is good to support them.

    Not sure if you are joking about Amazon. No way they are posting sales jokes. :tiphat:

    A joke that resulted in a bunch of clean-up work? Nah, I think that it was a simple mistake made by someone with a big stack of work in front of them. I'll bet they got chewed out.

    The first portion of this post seemed fairly reasonable.
    It's fortunate that this poster had the foresight to not fall for the "Amazon pricing carrot scam"...
    But then, wary reasoned logic surprisingly turns into something else, unnecessarily...
    That last statement turned what may have been a few valid points, that speculates about Amazon's pricing strategy, into accusatory generalized ranting about those that ordered the cheap Amazon.CA price.

    The fact that he can conveniently "box" everyone who ordered the amazing deal together, and summarily question their motives, intentions, and reactions as a whole is sadly mistaken.

    Which is just as ugly and disrespectful as earlier posts that seemed to gloat over the deal.

    Sorry you feel that way. I don't fault the people that order product in response, only that they fall for these retailing tactics, that happen with alarming regularity.
     
  6. How do you explain the use of Spinal Tap's original (well, 2nd) band name in the order information? How does one get "The New Originals" from The Beatles? A typo? :D

    When the news of a six disc deluxe set was first leaked, I was prepared for a price well above $200...maybe even $300. The Beatles have always priced their product towards the high end. I remember when Abbey Riad was first released the list price was set at $6.98 (or something like that)... A dollar more than normal. People were outraged.
    Anyway...I was pleasantly surprised to see the list price at $150...and an average selling price of around $120.

    In my mind, that is reasonable.

    But you're comparing a 'deluxe edition' to a 'super deluxe edition'. The next step up is the 'super duper deluxe edition' which requires a monthly mortgage payment!

    Got mine locked in at $117.99 from Amazon, if it goes down more great.
    Just wait what a Super Deluxe will run when it goes OOP...

    I think the initial low pricing was a simple mistake by someone who probably, routinely, enters prices for items everyday and just screwed up. Probably had no idea what the product was really or whom the Beatles were. I have no doubt someone got chewed out and was probably told to 'fix it' or lose his or her job.

    If the employees are treated so poorly, why do they work at Amazon?

    Not to be too blunt, but that is one ignorant comment.

    Let's get back to posting some (hopefully) good deals.

    Not nescessarily, it depends on the number of orders from the UK, from Amazon Italy. It`s called logistics, I`ve had orders from Amazon Spain, Germany, Italy & France arrive the day of release often. Anyhow you don`t know what I`m doing to enjoy myself on May 26th wiseguy.

    Not to be blunt, but I'll take that as you don't have an answer.

  20. Just noticed that price drop when I was ordering more music this morning. I am ringing the bowl and doing my Shreem Brzee in hopes of it hitting $100 or less!!

    I don't think it's an ignorant comment. If you don't like the pay or working conditions, go look for another job. We don't live in a slave economy.
