    Just a quick heads up on Amazon UK they have the Pink Floyd Discovery Box sets at £0.01 for some reason plus £1.26 shipping.

    Now I know this sounds insane, and they have probably priced them wrong, but it's worth a punt at that price, what's the worst that can happen?

    I just ordered two! If this comes off this will be the greatest deal of all time... :agree:

    Hope this is in the right place.

    I ordered it too. I'm expecting it to be canceled but you never know.

    Strange that it's the regular price on their web site, but a couple sellers are selling "New" for $0.01?! Hard to believe. Watch out for knockoffs.

    It is from the third marker seller so will probably will not work, if it was priced that way from Amazon.co.uk they would be more of a chance IMO

    Thanks for the heads up! Placed my ordered as well.
     
  7. I took the plunge too - nothing ventured, etc. 3 pounds 8 ain't a bad price for the complete discography, I figure.

    £145 for shipping? Then I will believe it will happen.

    Just ordered. Worth a try, but I don't expect it to go through.

    G'day,

    These sellers might have competitive pricing algorithms that have gone into a feedback loop (Seller A's algorithm prices just under Seller B's price, then Seller B's algorithm undercuts Seller A's price, and so on).

    I would expect any orders at this price to be cancelled as "out of stock", but it's worth a punt, I guess.

    For this price, even if it is a knockoff I would probably keep it.

    So far my order has gone through, if it does I may make a 1000% profit and sell it in the SHTV Marketplace for 10p:laugh:

    Checked out the link again, and the prices have changed ...dramatically!
     
  17. Yep, it's back up to about £140, but my order is apparently "dispatching soon" - specifically, November 14-15 - for the whopping total of £3.09. Looks like this might happen!

    Keep the ultra-limited mega-discount links comin', people!

    Wow! This is better than the "Oh By The Way" (genuine, fulfilled by Amazon) box going for less than $25.00 including shipping a couple of years ago. The Genesis boxes were going for like $13.00!

    I hope these people know that this set doesn't come with a scarf or marbles.

    (It's all about managing expectations. ;))

    G'day,

    I would be very surprised if any order is shipped at that price.

    The third-party sellers will simply cancel the orders, and claim there was a pricing mistake or they have run out of stock (if a reason is offered at all).

    It's happened to me before when I ordered an Al Di Meola box set at 3 pounds from a third-party seller when the usual price was around 20 pounds. The order was cancelled without any reason given.

    If it was Amazon offering the item then there's a good chance the price will be honoured, but that's not my experience with third-party sellers.

    Though it will be interesting to see what happens, regardless.
