take a look here:
play usa just put the price up to the proper amount, £10.99
for those who ordered it at 99p it will be honoured i just got off the phone to them (and there very ticked off manager - someones for the boot) and he said i could only order 4 copies (i originally ordered 10 cos im greedy)
the dvd is released tomorrow and was told the dvds would go then.
im surprised no one here posted comments about such a top deal but there ya go im happy £3.96 for 4 simpsons dvd should make a good £30 on ebay.
its people like yourself that ruin it for everyone else (and also makes it much less likely companies will honour such mistakes).
You are are so greedy and selfish,
It's bad enough to buy multiple offers meaning others miss out, but you go and brag about it too. I hope they don't sell on ebay and you get charged loads for listing them.
THANKS ALOT, YOU MAKE ME SICK THIS IS THE SORT OF THING THAT I HATE SEEING.
on topic - this was posted on dvdforums too. Alot of people went for it
Thanks to Paul 1672 for the great spot.
I got my order (for one) in at 99p
i would like to add that i also only ordered one.
i was just trying to advise you all of a deal.
did you notice the huge thread in dvd forums too paul?
or did you findit yourself?
i actually stumbled across it by accident mate.
was pricing up the latest box sets (seasons 3+4) and thought it looked too good to be true so placed an order for it anyway.
looks like it's a good job i did now!!!!
my son will be dead chuffed.
just had an email from playusa.com and it looks like thanks to some people i am now not going to be getting my order fulfilled.
so much for spreading the word eh???
guess i shall not be doing that again in a hurry.
a very gutted paul
Yeah, I got the same email.
You did a nice thing by posting, it seems some people will get 4 copies and others none.
I ordered one copy only , not received the e-mail but noticed my order has now been cancelled . I hope your dvd's sell on e-bay Stingersplash & no one pays you !
well im in the same boat people play have done the old cancelling orders due to high demand gimmick. despite the fact i was told on the phone yesterday i would get the dvds at the honoured price they have gone against it and cancelled all orders so those buying 1 or 5 will get nothing and not be charged. i never thought play would do such a thing ive been buying loads of them for years but they have let us all down in not honouring the price.
i mean i cant blame them, the company would have lost thousands of pounds due to the mess up, but the thing i dont like is that if they were cancelling it why didnt they say so yesterday? the dvd is out today so its pretty sickeneing.
as for the ebay thing, it was a joke i had ordered 4 copies for myself and my relatives for crimbo and thought it was a heck of a deal and save me money and the need to buy a few presents nearer december but some people dont get the joke.
In your earlier post you claim you ordered 10 copies - not 4, hmm, still 6 copies for Ebay then! Greed like that would alert Play to their mistake, so you probably ruined it for everybody that ordered a copy for themselves. Well done
/sniff /sniff What that smell? Horse? Cow? No! Its BULL ****!
Gotta say i feel sorry for those that didn't get it, but in your case mate i'm delighted they aren't honouring the deal!
i presume you all know it's illegal to sell region 1 dvd's on ebay
i ordered 10 dvds to start off with but they said i could only have 5 due to the size of the order and then when i was on the phone to them they said to drop it to 4.
as for it being illegal to sell region 1 dvds on ebay that very mistaken. if it is then why do they give you the choice of selecting the region of the dvd youre selling? i sell wrestling dvds that are region 1 all the time and they have no problem with me selling them, as they give you that choice of wot region the dvd is.
and it seems some people jumped the gun, a suprising amount of simpsons gone wild reg 1 dvds have popped up on ebay in the last few days....i wonder how many will be taken off by the sellers.
and yes i ordered 10 at the start cos i thought i can make sum money for xmas presents then took it down to 5 and then 4, which i was always going to keep. and lets face it its not my fault they cancelled the orders, its cos of sites like this who tell all about it that it got cancelled it was the number 1 seller even before i made my order so a lot of people are in the same boat and i bet im not the only one who ordered a few.
I dont really have a problem with playusa.com cancelling the order, it was a mistake, everyone knew it was a mistake and they admitted it was and they couldnt sell it at the price.
What i think is stupid is that that play honour the deal with some people and not others, either give it to everyone or to no-one...
And they probably honoured the deal with people who ordered loads, and people like me who ordered just 1 missed out
yeah,but why ring them up??????
i bet not many people called them up about it???
surely you knew there was a risk with ordering so many?????
most people on these forums only want a good deal,or so i thought.
let that be a to me i think.
anyway,i reckon enoughs enough now.
is it possible to put a close to this post.
