Great bargains on NICOT and NICNT commentaries

Amazon appear to be having a sale on the generally excellent NICOT and NICNT commentary series. Some are at silly prices. For example V. P. Hamilton’s commentaries on Genesis are £1.99 each for 540 and 733 pages!

UPDATE: It seems Amazon got their pricing wrong and are now cancelling orders.

  1. Amazon has just woken us all up from the dream … They’re now saying the prices were a mistake :-(

  2. I suggest people in the UK alert their local trading standards office to this. When a shop misprices something, they are obliged to keep to that price. I suspect Amazon may be in breach of trading regulations.

  3. As they accepted the order, I will write to them or breach of contract, I’ll let you know what happens. Might be worth a voucher.

    Ciao in grace

  4. Mark, note that just below that there is this:

    “If a consumer orders goods, the trader accepts the order and the price is agreed, but later the trader says the price has gone up, the consumer should only have to pay the price given at the time the order was placed or, alternatively, the consumer could cancel the order.”

    That is, you can’t insist that anyone sell to you at the price marked. But once they sell it to you, they can’t increase the price. Cancelling the order is only open to the consumer. I think Amazon is in violation of this.

    The only question in my mind is whether, because they hadn’t charged my credit card, the order hasn’t actually been placed.

  5. Following from Daniel’s comment, it is my belief that once they send you the confirmation email, a contract has been established that they must honour. However, their email says “your order and your contract to purchase these items is not complete until we send you an e-mail notifying you that the items have been dispatched to you”.
