    I just added several titles to my bag and I'm seeing absolutely crazy prices on most of 'em. Here's a sample:

    Catch A Fire DE - $12
    Exodus DE - $10
    Green River SACD - $9.74
    CCR S/T SACD - $12.74
    Abraxas SACD - $7.49

    It seems like there are other bargains to be had too...

    Any 10% off coupons? I only have a $5 off $30...

    I don't know what the problem is, but I'm going to take advantage of it! :goodie:

    TowerRecords.com is temporarily unavailable. We will re-open shortly.

    Maybe they did go crazy... I should have submitted my order when I had the chance. :(

    Yeah, I sure did. Not that it's any good now. ;)

    I guess the orders would have been cancelled anyway. There was a similar pricing error on amazon.ca this December when they were selling the LOTR box for $20 and the Star Wars box for a similar insane price. All orders got cancelled :(

    You'd think they'd have to honor the price they quoted you if you submitted your order before they caught it. Oh well.

    You know, I just thought of something. What if someone that works high up in Tower reads this forum, saw this post, and sprayed their coffee all over their monitor before calling the IT guy and telling them to shut down the website? Just a thought... :)

    I sure hope not! I will kill myself for that!

    The thought struck me too though...

    On second thought, I doubt it. Why would someone high up in Tower read a "Coupons, Discounts & Sales" forum? He can probably get them at whatever Tower pays for them ;)

    Well we will see. My order actually went through and I received a mail saying that they were processing my order. Three AIX DVD-A's for $6.74 each. Sure hope they honour it.

    So the website shuts down whenever employees catch pricing errors? They've done this before? I've NEVER experienced that at CD Universe.

    All the DVD-A's were less than $10 from what I could see. I guess that is reason for shutting down and stopping the bleeding. Hopefully that also bodes well for orders that were accepted. First the Bowie DVD-A at amazon UK for the equivalent of about $3 and now this! The year is starting off well. As long as they honour my order of course..........................

    I tried the Harvest, Homecoming, Grateful Dead DVD-A, all were at their normal price.

    Did you look at them as a list or did you actually go into their individual pages? That's where I saw the ridiculous pricing. I have all the ones you mentioned so I did not check any of those. The ones I did check though were extremely cheap.

    They fixed it :(

    I had some of the cheapos in my basket, and when I was submitting the order, the site crashed. Now everything in my basket is normal priced.

    I'm not so sure I would want to take advantage of an error like that. Sure wouldn't want it done to me.

    I see that. The three I ordered are back to $21.99 each. Got my fingers crossed. They are all in stock so if they are going to honour it they should be shipping it soon.
