This is an odd move by Amazon. Even if it is truly a pricing error, it can't be that big of a one. It's not like this was accidentally posted for 50% off or something. They should have honored the price and delivered.
They would have lost maybe $10 a card. Big whoopee.
people i am pissed and i mean pissed i missed this deal and really want to find a deal on this card and i am glad i missed it but i still want a deal on this card. What can we work out on this card and other links to get it under $200
I feel sorry for that poor supervisor! I gave her both barrels! Thx for waisting my time and taking almost two months to tell me it was a pricing error. I will be rethinking my future purchases at Amazon after this!
Chances are very high that it isn't actually a price mistake.
I've gotten 4 pretty obvious price mistake items shipped from Amazon in the last few months.
Plus even people who have ordered the card at $210 couldn't get theirs shipped (Theres really no way $210 for that card is price mistake).
What is most likely happening is that Amazon isn't going to be getting as many (or any) of those Asus graphics cards, and decided to be like Dell posting BS excuses instead of telling the real reason for cancellation.
And in the meantime.... WTB graphics card deal that doesn't involve 10% CA tax...
Sent amazon an email stating my disapproval of their method of handling this event. Response as follows.
I'm very sorry that this has been a disappointing experience for you. We regret the error that resulted in an incorrect price being displayed for the Express Graphics Card. Unfortunately, in this case we were unable to honor the incorrect price, and your orders were canceled.
Once again, I'm sorry about this price error. This is a rare occurrence on our site. You can place the order which is available with the seller on following link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003WUXNPO
I understand that this has been a disappointing experience for you. We regret the error that resulted in an incorrect price being displayed for the Graphics Card. Unfortunately, in this case we were unable to honor the incorrect price, and your order was canceled.
At any given time, despite our best efforts, a small number of the millions of items on our site may be mispriced. We do, however, verify prices as part of our shipping procedures.
One of our aims at Amazon.com is to provide a convenient and efficient service; in this case, we haven't met that standard.
I'm truly sorry, and I hope you'll give us another chance in the future.Thanks for taking the time to share your comments. We respect your opinions and value your feedback.
I wonder who was in charge to put this price online and clearly made the same mistake more than twice. They should get rid of that person. 175 a price mistake? yeah right!
3 months after, they might beg you to buy this card at this price.
Yep, I got the same damn email canceling my order!
Very disappointed in Amazon. They must have something that alerts them to too many orders for a highly discounted item, so that they can correct this "mispriced item". Bunch of BS!
This is the first bad experience I've had with Amazon in 10 years. And it's a doozy.
I guess we'll know for sure what REALLY happened soon. I called and had a lengthy chat with a rep and they basically told me something completely different - that they simply had no stock. She put up a whole bunch of theories about why it might've happened - i.e. ASUS and Amazon disagreeing on what the price should be and them not knowing when they might get any stock whatsoever period.
If Amazon starts selling the ASUS DirectCU TOP 1GB GTX 460 again for a higher price in the next week or so we'll know that they're just throwing out BS to avoid having to ship out "under priced" product.
