    Cirque Du Soleil Boxset 4 Disc for only £5.99 at WHSmith Defo a mis-price! I've ordered a copy, what do you think the chances of WHSmith honouring this is? :rolleyes:

    They didn't honour a damn thing from the last round of mis-prices.

    I notice that there's 4 pictures on the front, but WH Smith gives no info on the set. It doesn't say anywhere that it's more than one disk. And the cover looks a bit subtle for a 4 disk set, perhaps it's just bits from each production?

    I managed to pick one of these up in store for £4.99 a couple of months back so they may just have some stock left over from their clearout.
    I've ordered one anyway, nothing to lose.

    I saw the show at downtown disney in Florida 2 years ago, that show is not yet on DVD but these will do for now :thumbsup:

    Just had email about my order.
    Said I was invoiced (which was shown on WHSmith website order status) but the supplier had found a problem with the item and WHS were now reordering it, and in the meantime arranging a refund!
    As they'd actually taken out the money from my card in the first place, does that actually constitute a contract, as the order email seemed to imply?
    In which case, I would be expecting WHSmith to come up with the goods - eventually - at the 'misprice', unless I'm misunderstanding the position.
    Anyone else received similar message?

    Mine is 'on order' but no email telling me it aint coming!
    Haven't had all the discs promised to me in the last round of WHS mis-prices yet either. Apparently they can't find my order details????
    Luckily I kept all their confirmation mails :)

    just had this::

    Cirque Du Soleil - (DVD) CDRP1268 1

    We have received a report that the the above title is out of print and no longer available.
    We have therefore had to cancel the order as we will not be able to fulfil the order for this title.
    Other items on your order will be unaffected by this.

    I got exactly same mail this am - they got this back

    Thanks for your mail but I do not accept the
    contents
    - this title is not out of print and is available
    via
    all other on line sellers. You had only just
    added
    this to a promotion and a chain with your
    knowledge
    would not have done this without ensuring item
    was
    still available. It is not honourable to use this
    excuse just because the price was incorrect.

    Considering you messed up my last order
    completely
    yourselves by somehow putting on hold and by time
    it
    weas realised you had sold out I am not impressed
    at
    all and would like this escalated to a Manager
    for
    urgent attention and confirmation this order will
    be
    upheld!!!.

    Thanks and Regards
    :mad:

    I got the same reply too - question is, if they've advertised it at at a price and are not willing to honour it, are they legally obliged to? As of yesterday, the website was still listing it at the same price, with the legend 'In stock' displayed prominently alongside.

    but if they are still available then are they breaking a contract
    or are they just playing dirty :thumbsdow :thumbsdow

    Unfortunately, becuse they have not taken any payment for these there is no contract to speak of!

    I had the same email.
    Wrote back pointing out that as they initially charged my card, (before finding some 'problem' with the item in the warehouse :laugh: ) under their own terms and conditions that constituted their acceptance of the contract which they were not then able to break without my agreement.
    Also pointed out that they could find another supplier as the item was available everywhere else.
    (And incidentally available a lot cheaper than WHS try to sell it for normally. They could soon recoup any 'losses' to us who've ordered it at £6 by buying in some stock from other retailers who are charging £16,which they could then sell at their usual rip-off £27!!)
    Is it worth contacting trading standards about this one?
