This is the price

Amazon/target pricing screw up big upset

Today amazon and target had a ps3 up for 39.99, all day. Its apparently a mistake, but wether the company is going to honor or not is currently up in the air. They state some terms and conditions, but this is something that should of been pulled down within a hour, obviously they have not. They are trying to traffic people to the website, to potentially buy other things, a form of false advertising. To why the page is still up, is of a concern. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18785247/Screen%20shot%202011-01-16%20at%2011.03.02%20PM.png Is the link. To post this wrong on TWO different sites, is more than a simple mistake.

Many sites "share" pricing data and even inventory. Amazon/Target is the biggest of these. The decimal was put in the wrong place and because it is a Target item number and not Amazon, Target has to make the change. The TOS says it can be cancelled.

A while back someone was selling Marijuana on Amazon and it ended up being listed on Target too. Just a quirk of the system!
