    How do you get the extra 50% to work? It worked right now but it went away? Any help appreciated.

    Hey guys,

    It is with great regret that we inform you that we have been forced to cancel your most recent order with Boylston Trading Co if placed within the past 36 hours. Our checkout system began discounting all products on our site rather than only those in the sale section. As soon as we became aware of this issue it was fixed by our tech team to ensure that the sale price only reflected sale items. In that time however, you had placed your order. We cannot apologize enough that you were affected by this issue and assure you that we meant absolutely no deceit in the price changes - it was strictly a technical error and again, it has been resolved. At this time we would first like to confirm for you that in cancelling your order, no funds were drawn from your account – you may see an authorization of the funds, but this will be released in 1-2 business days. You can confirm the exact time that this will be released with your bank (or we would be happy to contact them for you), if you foresee this being a financial burden of any degree. Finally, if you are still interested in the products you had purchased, we are fully prepared to offer you a 15% discount on your next order and will also include a complimentary Boylston Trading Co. pin set with your shipment. We understand that we very well may have compromised your trust in the wake of this issue, but assure you that our small team is dedicated to doing whatever it takes to regain said trust. If you have any questions, comments, concerns which we may have failed to address or if you would like to place an order with the aforementioned discount, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

    All the best,

    Miles McAlpin

    Grenson Archies for $95 seemed a little fishy

    This is what I have a problem with. Either that is sloppy work and a mistake, or a lie. Obviously the sale items weren't supposed to be discounted further, and it wasn't just a problem with non-sale items.

    Yes, it doesn't seem like sales items are discounted now. Weird.

    well to be fair, the OP said it was a discount on sale items and he stumbled upon the fact that everything was being discounted. at that point it was a frenzy and nearly comparable to looting. I knew it would be too good to be true and chalk it up to technical errors. not mad at them, thankfully they were able to catch it quickly rather than wait a few days. was looking forward to that Sidian Ersatz for $50 though :(

    while it seemed too good to be true, the explanation doesn't really make sense.

    "In the past 36 hours, our checkout system began discounting all products on our site rather than only those in the sale section"

    Sale prices are they same that they've been for weeks...

    If there wasn't supposed to be a markdown on sale items, or full price items, then what happened in the first place??

    That's what I'm wondering too. I only ordered sale items and those were apparently supposed to be discounted. But too good to be true.

    according to Boylston it was supposed to be 50% off of nothing.
