Hopefully one person will receive it and then you can challenge Amazon on their inequity.
Worked for me with the ABBA box set from Amazon Italy ;-)

Grant

Bummer! Amazon have just cancelled the order!!!

Neil

I had ordered It’s immaterial along with this and of course like everybody else i received the same cancellation email. I cancelled the It’s immaterial order and now i’m glad i didn’t d/l the autorip or they would have charged me for it. I hope whoever made that pricing error gets their p45.

Gary Shaw

I won’t add my order cancelled email to this thread (I did get one), but will ask, were you at Garbage at the Troxy last night Paul? Thought I recognised that was you leaving, from your videos on here.

Ronald

My order is also cancelled by Amazon.

Tim

Yep, mine cancelled too. Isn’t there something about consumer rights and getting goods for the advertised price?

Eugene

Damn it! Amazon just cancelled my order… Reading some previous posts here I was hoping for dispatch confirmation, but I had got cancellation e-mail instead. The price was to good to be true… Bad luck. ((

Bren

Cancelled order too, right after getting a getting a revised, quicker delivery date. Hmnnn….

Steve

Same :(

As of posting this comment:
Amazon Bestsellers Rank: 21 in Music (See Top 100 in Music)
#4 in Music > Box Sets
#8 in Music > Rock
#21 in Music > Pop

This profitable box set will be nicely advertised on the landing page for anyone looking at music box sets or searching by genre, very clever Amazon.

zane richardson

I personally think they would have definitely profited somewhat from the error, with the box set then rising to #1 best seller, encouraging more orders at the normal price. Something smells fishy..

Adam shaw

Got the same email !
Has everyone had there orders cancelled , even those who had prime orders saying they were dispatched?

Mark

Yep, cancelled as well. At least I’m still getting my £2 Prince vinyl order honoured. You win some, you lose some.

Walter

was displayed incorrectly when you placed your order…

DJ Control

My order cancelled too! :…..( @gwynogue I eventually received the a-ha box set at the deal price but it took about two months for them to find one. re Queen…Amazon are usually pretty good at honouring mis-priced listings but this one would’ve been a pretty heavy hit selling this way below cost.

Phil

My Amazon order for the Queen box set has just been cancelled too.

BUT – the Pet Sounds set (which I bought at a reduced price from jpc.de, thanks to a SDE alert) has just arrived.

Swings and roundabouts, I guess.

zane richardson

I would be interested to know if anyone DIDN’T receive the cancellation email, and if they subsequently receive the box set at the deal price.
Perhaps this would give us at least a small and flimsy wooden leg to stand on when contesting their ‘right’ to cancel?

Adey

Same here. After all the other emails from them regarding delivery etc its now been cancelled :(

zane richardson

Sorry, I did check to see if anyone has posted a cancellation notice here before my own message but it seems the comments thread hadn’t updated at that point!

zane richardson

I ordered mine at 12:37, only a few minutes after the deal alert. Ordered 2 for good measure – yet have just received the following email from Amazon. Has this happened to anyone else??
Note: I also received the ‘dispatching earlier than expected’ email, with a projected date of 16th-17th June (reduced from 24th-27th)

Will you therefore remove Amazon from your price comparisons as they can do this for anything now.

Steven McLaren

Paul

Can we get this post removed then as it all seems a bit pointless now not to mention really annoying.

Steven

Alastair

12:15 email from Amazon to tell me my order was arriving earlier than expected – yay!

14:41 email from Amazon to tell me my order has now been cancelled – boo!

Just got e-mail from Amazon saying that my order has been cancelled :-(

I just received this email from Amazon.uk today and needless to say I am extremely disappointed. I guess the moral of the story is “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” I’m now interested to know if anyone will actually receive this box set, or if everyone’s orders have been cancelled.

Narendra Kumar

Just got a mail from Amazon saying that it was a pricing error and my order has been cancelled :-(

Mike

Order cancelled by Amazon, pricing error

Trevor

Oh dear, just received Amazon email telling me that my order is cancelled as the item was priced incorrectly. Anybody else?

Steve

Whaaat ! Amazon have now cancelled my order inspite of them acknowledging it. Presumably I haven’t a leg to stand on.

Sean

I just received notice that an incorrect price was listed and that my order was cancelled. Arrrgh!

Torsten Hendrichs

Amazon UK has just sent a cancellation due to an “error” with the price. They know how to keep customers satisfied …

Tim

I’ve just had an email from Amazon saying that the price was wrong and they have cancelled the order. How frustrating!

Fergus

I thought it could be too good to be true.
Just received email from Amazon cancelling my order for “Odeon”. They claim mispricing is to blame and invite me to buy at the current price. You gotta love them!!

moog_man

Ah, boo….. Just received notification from Amazon UK informing me they’ve now cancelled the order due to a pricing error.
dang !
Let us know if anyone receives their order at the intended price, please

Laszlo

Unfortunately they cancelled my order, telling that they had a pricing error on the website.
I placed my order immediately when I got the deal alert from you Paul, and Amazon acknowledged the order by an email.

Andy

Ordered when this was notified and Just been told by Amazon that they’ve cancelled my order due to pricing error
Still it is always worth a go

Top site – top notifications – keep it up

Harald

My order (one copy to germany) was cancelled due to incorrect prizing. :-(

John

Received an email today from Amazon saying the item would be delivered earlier than their previous notification. Within one hour I received a message saying item would be cancelled because it was mis-priced… is this even possible?

Amazon say…

Gavin Hallesy

My order has just been cancelled by Amazon.

dominic edwards

Harumph! I ordered mine while it was in stock, but just had an email from Amazon saying it was priced incorrectly & my order has been cancelled.

Dave Glennon

Just had an e-mail from Amazon saying the price was a mistake and therefore they are cancelling my order…

‘Your order has now been cancelled. If you still want to purchase this item, please place a new order which will be charged at the correct price, when we dispatch it to you.’

Can I ask them to honour the price?

Gavin Smith

Hi all. Just received an email from Amazon re, the Queen Night At The Odeon box set offer.

They’ve cancelled the order as the price was apparently a mid-print. They’ve offered me a reorder at full price.

Gavin

Alan.

Bugger. Just got an email from Amazon that “The price for `A Night At The Odeon’ (ASIN: B0157F5D3Q) was displayed incorrectly when you placed your order”, so they’ve now cancelled it.

I don’t suppose there’s any comeback given they say it’s in their terms and conditions etc?

Andy

I just received an e-mail from amazon cancelling my order. Well, we all kind of expected this, right?

Mar Wolfgang

Damn! Just got a cancellation notice from Amazon on the basis of “incorrect price displayed”… I guess they cancelled all the orders that weren’t available for immediate shipment, mine was on the 11-14 day backorder although it was at £12.99.

DaKraut

Yep. Same here.

korova

Just received a “price error, order cancelled” message from Amazon. Was worth a try anyway :(

DaKraut

Don’t know about you guys, but today I received an email from Amazon.co.uk that according to their Terms & Conditions when an items is more expensive than the price given, the order can’t be fulfilled. So they cancelled my order. Damn! Has this happened to anyone else?

Robin Pullen

Well just had notification from amazon to say that my order has been cancelled as they basically can’t fulfil it at this price :( Wouldn’t mind but had an email 2 hours ago from them saying that it would be delivered by Thursday/Friday! Extremely disappointed but not surprised.
