I missed ordering that camera by like 30 seconds before it was gone 🙁

I’m wondering how many people got the camera delivered and how many of those orders got canceled?

It makes me physically ill that I missed out on all the camera deals, even though I would have sworn they’d be cancelled.

Get well soon, perhaps regular visits to the “DOC” well help you feel better..

I’m sure the sellers who lost thousands on the mistake fare are getting sick too.

How does that work? Like was it Amazon’s mistake but the sellers are stuck living with it? Or did the seller mess up and Amazon said “tough shit”?

Can’t speak to this particular instance (some photographer blogs are saying sold by amazon) but what can happen is:

Some Amazon sellers use an automatic price adjuster I order to be the lowest price and get more sales since Amazon will prioritize them. The adjusters have a low limit you can set. Someone drops their price (which they don’t have to have in stock) and the price matcher drops the price to be competitive. If you didn’t set the low limit – poof – you’re done.

I’ve read of multiple “corporate attack” scenarios where people get cleaned out of their inventory that way. Bad guy drops his price to 0.01. Waits for the price matcher to match (couple minutes to couple hours) than orders 1000 of the item from the nice guy. Than Bad guy puts them back up on Amazon for sale. Good guy gets a couple dollars, loses all inventory, and has to pay amazon for all their fees.

I assume most of these situations don’t hit the interwebz because people are embarrassed and they messed up setting up the price matcher. Amazon doesn’t care about the ones that get posted and I don’t remember reading any success stories.

Not as sick as they will be trying to get it fixed or “unbanned” like they did to our wonderful admins here and on Prime day to boot. Amazon back-end support sucks.

But they are TBTGAF and have a steady stream of people wanting in on a share of the marketplace.

These were items only sold by Amazon.

Just keep an eye for A6000s on ebay and CL;)

I’m sure those that got more than one for $94 a piece wouldn’t mind unloading them with a much better price than retail.

thank you for your response. i didnt get the credit even though i clicked on that yellow button to shop. i know that was a requirement and the order had to be paid for in-app. did you click on that yellow button (forgot what the text said) then add your items to the cart? i was initially on my computer adding items to my cart then made the purchase in the app.

another question, was your credit card charged on july 16? i had purchased multiple items and the payment was cleared on july 17 and july 18 so maybe thats why i didnt get the credit. anyways talking to customer support now, will report back with my results.

A bunch of Targets got scammed out of beer on prime day.

I don’t know where to post this, but I was offered a retention bonus of 10k MR points after $3k spend while closing a year old no-AF personal Amex ED card. I’ve a few other Amex cards as well, so it’s not like I was dropping Amex entirely.

I guess the retention bonus offer’s not bad for a no-AF card.

Boeing shouldn’t be even legally allowed to call the exact same air-frame something else entirely. This is why our regulatory system is all messed up; because everyone wants stock prices to rise, despite obvious wrongheadedness… which is making planes inherently unsafe.

When is passenger safety going to be the number one priority? Until such time, Boeing should be sanctioned for even thinking about trying to trick people onto that death trap.
