Citibank also $0 liability... Deal is dead.
We should go back to the Rube chat people that tried crashing SF and tell them... You guys think you know how to bring down a site???

they're, like, dead in the water. i wonder what happened to cause the price mistake?

Damn, by the time I put in my order, it already showed the regular prices and then the site crashed altogether. Whoever the lucky few who put in their orders at 12 pounds per shirt, please update if they honor your orders.

And yes, they will be forced to honor these orders even if this is a computer glitch as Internet orders are a legal binding contract. A few years ago, UA was offering non-stop tickets from Chicago to Delhi for a special price of $1,200 on their website - however, some technie accidentaly put it down as $12 and the entire flight was sold out in under a half hour - UA was still forced to honor that price.
I can promise you that just b/c you order something online at x price, the merchant does not have to honor it. Maybe in some cases they do (or choose to), but as many fat wallet.com'ers can attest, in no way is it a sure thing. I have personally bought, had my credit card charged, and received email confirmations/receipts for, in the last year: airline tickets pc's hotel rooms LCD monitors printers and the list goes on- 90% of them were not honored. Any smart company throws up a saying in their purchasing fine print that says they are not liable for pricing errors or glitches. Dell is FAMOUS for doing this- they've even been taken to court for it as a bait and switch tactic. Bottom line, it never hurts to try to get in on these deals but you should never, ever think you're entitled to it. It would be more like a miraculous surprise...

T M Lewin is a UK company, subject to UK law, as is any transaction with them. In UK law a marked price is considered only as an 'invitation to treat', and the seller is not obliged to sell to anyone. There has been a precedent case, in which a website offered goods at low prices; the vendor claimed it was a computer glitch, and the Court held that they did not have to honour the 'wrong' prices.

Again, any updates? My CC hasnt been charged yet. So maybe there was a pricing error and Lewin wont honor the orders. But the least they could do is recognize that there WAS an error and I DID place an order.

i miss all the fun dammit is it too late in the day UK time for someone to call them and ask if it was legit?
