Sooo true! These types of deals are ALWAYS worth a shot! The "price mistake" deal alert is truly one of my favorite SD notifications! LOL I'd have to say that well over 50% of my attempts to score past pricing errors have been fruitful! Amazon is really a no-brainer & with the other big retail chains, well, it just depends on so many other variables like how quick they catch it (& let some early orders get through) how egregious the error really is dollar wise or how many people have tried to avail themselves of the opportunity, ie whether a SD horde has been unleashed or if it's on the down low & stays that way or just how concerned the company is with customer satisfaction!
Sooo many times it's paid off to go ahead & place an order even when I knew it was NEVER going to ship because the company is known to offer "consolation" credit, discounts or gift cards in lieu of honoring the original price mistake! A couple months back Best Buy had a $29.99 cover/stand for the $150 LifeProof iPad case on their website as if it was the "actual case" for that price & not just an accessory for the LifeProof case itself! They sent out emails apologizing for the misrepresentation & advising U to cancel if it was, indeed, the case U thought U had ordered! They said that if U wanted the $150 LifeProof case to call customer service & reference the email & they would go ahead & honor the mistake & give U the full case for just $29.99! Everyone on that thread had high hopes it would work out this way or that some arrangement could be made once they were notified of the problem! So yeah we all got our $150 cases for $29.99 but only if we were willing to take a chance & order!
I hope some or all of U get ur headphones!
***Mass cancellations! That sucks! It was worth trying! Better luck next time
I remember the Lifeproof deal; I ended up with more Lifeproof cases than I knew what to do with initially. They also threw in free Lifeproof covers and one free Lifeproof case worth $150.
For me, the price mistake before the Lifeproof one was an HP one, where HP apologized and gave a $200 coupon code for each canceled order.
This year alone, I've received over $2,000 in price mistake deals already.
