Amazon.com retracted my order over a week later.

Recommended Posts

I woke up at 4:00am in the morning on Black Friday, November 23, and saw a great deal on the MX Revolution mouse for $36.99. I immediately bought it, received an email stating that it will be shipped on November 28 (a little bit slow I thought), and patiently waited until the November 28.


I received an email on the 28th, expecting an order shipping confirmation, but instead I received this.

I say to myself don't be mad, just wait a week or two more. So I waited until December 1st, and wow I received this email.


Greetings from Amazon.com.


We regret to inform you that an error caused the following item(s) to

be displayed at an incorrect price:


Logitech MX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse


In accordance with our posted policies on pricing, we are unable to

offer this item for the incorrectly posted price. Therefore, we have

I understand if it is just a day or two to cancel my order, but I had to wait for over a week. Should I call them and complain, or will that not get me anywhere. Please, this is the first time it I've encountered this type of situation. What should I do?? Thank you.

Good luck with that...I think that I have read the same thing on the Amazon forums that orders were cancelled for incorrect pricing and heard mention that it's in their terms & conditions, so they are covered. But I do not know that for a fact, so you might want to read up on their site.

I'm still fighting with Amazon about a Black Friday deal that they shipped without all the parts (bundle). They are using every excuse in the book, each email back states a new reason for their non-shipment, and they are refusing to ship the balance of the items described in their BF listing. :gdparanoid:

wow that is horrible service I ordered a wii on black friday and I'm still waiting for it, I hope they dont cancel the order, I think in your case it's false advertisement but I do not know all the terms and conditions, Amazon has had alot of compliants in the past, if all else file a claim with BBB,consumer affairs when you get the time...

Yes, this happened to me with Amazon too. I ordered a ton of books during one of their sales about a month ago and after a few weeks, I was told that they were cancelling my order due to pricing errors. They also drug it out and did it a few books at a time until finally they cancelled all of them. I called and complained and they say it is in their terms and condiitons. I did get a $10 gift card for my trouble, but I don't think I will be shopping Amazon as much in the future. Their customer service was horrible and I don't like that they can just cancel orders at their discretion, especially when the items are still in stock, just at higher prices.
