About 30 minutes ago someone on facebook tipped me off that Amazon was selling $500-$1,500 guitars for $112. I raced over to the link they'd provided to a MIM butterscotch Tele, and the last one got bought just as I was completing the buy it thing. So I went to the retailer and tried to hurriedly browse for what else was on sale... a lot of Fender basses, and a bunch of PRS S2 models. While I sat in disbelief at those, and tried to figure out which one I would want... they figured it out and canceled it all. Amazon made a mistake. The retailer is honoring the sales and Amazon is eating the costs...

Moral of the story. JUMP!!!

I have a screen cap to demonstrate...

I probably would've flipped it. Though people are now saying they're hearing that all sales will be voided and money refunded. Too many people caught on, and people stocked up... like "I bought 5 Classic Player Strats, ha ha..." and "I bought 6 Hot Rod Deluxe amps..." and "I bought 10 PRS S2 guitars, about to hit ebay and make a fortune!" All of that for $112.69 each.

The loss will be too great for amazon just to eat, probably.

Yep, apparently the orders are all being canceled and money is being refunded.

Since I don't do ANY online shopping, therefore also don't spend hours browsing for those kind of bargains and also don't bother with Dweebbook, I guess I miss them all the time! wink
