Thanks Mr Prefect, for that! I got a couple of 'em. There were just four left before I got mine. So, John, I expect the others have gone too. Remains to be seen whether they'll honour the price!! A bit too much of a bargain to be true, but we'll see.

I remember a few years back when a big online seller got a Kodak digital camera price spectacularly wrong, from memory they didn't honour the price.

In this instance, given the stature of the retailer and the fairly small numbers, I would hope your bargain will be popping through your door in a few days.

straight away I found this http://www.bitterwallet.com/5-uk-consumer-pricing-errors-we-will-always-remember/14332 so Kodak did honour the price. It was eight years ago - I need to get out more!

Now if only I could find a Canon 5D II for £25.

Guys! just remember that the Trancend cards give problems when importing data from them in a mac.

The problem seems to be only when you have finished with them and decide to do the usual action before taking it away from the card reader of draggin the icon into the eject button, at that point it has been reported that cards have been rendered unusable.

I had that experience last week and managed to fix it. I will continue to buy Trancend but will import the data through my 7d and not through a card reader in case I forget the above....again

ISTR that the Kodak debacle prompted a change in the law where an obvious pricing error would not have to be honoured. In my opinion, its quite dishonest trying to get one of these bargains when the purchaser knows its a mistake. Just like the guy in the linked article who tried to order 100 TVs from Argos at 2.99 GBP each.

If it was a consumer who accidentally paid 100 times the cost of an item, I can imagine the mass indignation that would ensue.

I can't remember the rules of online however a price on a store shelf is not a guarantee of a price it is an invitation to treat not a formal offer to sell the goods at that price, the point that it becomes a formal offer is when it is rung up at the check-out hence the need to have a visible display at the checkouts in supermarkets you then accept that offer and the contract of sale is complete. The exact moment that you accept is written into law (can't quite remember it) such as auctions the moment the contract is made is when the auctioneers hammer strikes for the final time.
With online sales It could be worth finding out when the law views the contract of sale as having being completed as it could be worth pursuing though doubtful.
