1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Perhaps... however the site in question does not. And the contract you claim does not exist has already been completed... they offered a product for a price and the poster paid it. Done deal. You might notice there is a difference between not honoring an (mistakenly) advertised price before the sale, and trying to claim a refund for having honored the price after a sale, which in my understanding is what happened here. so again, yes you should have gotten the price they charged you originally.

    Think there's anything I can do considering I have my confirmation/receipt with the item and total?

    not really if you've already accepted their offer... of course you can ask except now you are relying on their benevolence as opposed to your superior bargaining position, which unfortunately you relinquished. In general, just do not accept terms that are not favorable to you and perhaps it will work out better next time. I might play up some "confusion" on your part as you said they called while you were sleeping or whatever, but it's really not cool. You know it's bargaining 101... you can always come down or lower your terms, but once you do you can't go back.

    true, yet I would assume mostly only attorneys would know that which he is clearly not... is he going to sue for breach and demand specific performance over a mistakenly advertised pair of jeans? If he had posted it before accepting the 20% we may have been able to better help him.

    After doing some research, it appears that businesses are not obligated to honor the online price if it's caught before packaging/shipping, and it's really up to them if they want to keep their customers happy. You might have some other knowledge if you're a lawyer (I think stanley is), but even some legal docs I read said the same thing. Not that I'm pursuing anything like that - was just curious if it's really a legal obligation on their part.

    An online sale constitutes an offer on the part of the buyer. The seller does not have to accept. The legal obligation is only on the part of the buyer. Of course, sites like EBay are different, since all users are bound by their contract with EBay.

    ^ yes... but acceptance can occur on receipt of payment ... might depend on terms, state law, etc... whatever this isn't contract law class.



    this is where you missed out. had you construed your desire in the above context they certainly would have decided it was easier to just keep you happy. since they gave you the 20% and you said OK, they thought that was enough and you thereby lost your opportunity to get the discount they first offered. anyway...

    I've been buying a shitload of cigars lately and smoking them. I don't really see any clothes that do it for me these days (dare I say some mc stuff turns me on though).

    It's a lousy deserving attitude. Like dudes who tries to get his meal comp'd because the waiter forgot a beverage. Mistakes are made; you aren't entitled to benefit from it.

    If you read my original post, I was simply gauging people's opinions on whether or not they would have made a big deal out of it, as I originally did not. Then someone mentioned the legalities behind it, so I looked into it. Not contacting them about it again since it's not worth the time/effort.

    But your analogy is off - if a waiter gave me a bill that was 30% lower than what I owed, and I paid and was leaving when they said "wait, wait, we gave you the wrong bill!", I'd be pissed (moreso than I am over this). There's a different between trying to capitalize on a mistake and being a benefactor (unknowingly) of an error.

    this isn't remotely analogous to what happened... no "wringing" or "comping" involved.

    Hi!
    They are from Danner. I bought them in a TK Maxx store and tried to find them online and I only found them in Japanese online stores for some reason. There they were called "plain boot d0020" or something like that.

    A boutique webshop, without high inventory and volume, posting the wrong price and reneging after a sale makes me seriously question the store's competency.

    dudes, let's stop this moral maneuvering about what you're owed and pseudo lawyering in the name of saving 50 bucks. they made a mistake, acknowledged it and offered a compromise. find better things to worry about

    RFT: stumbled into a fit this morning and surprised how much I liked the color scheme. has me thinking more about geller stuff, sepia denim most notably

    Analogy wars: You never received the item. The meal, in your example, you had already consumed.

    It's entitled because you're getting pissy over a genuine mistake and expecting to be compensated for it. You even got offered a discount. If this is the sort of thing that gets you going then you should probably take a step away from the computer.

    I went shopping with Ms. CWI today. Sale season at a bunch of random little boutiques in SF: bought 1 necklace, 2x cuffs, 5 knits, 1 dress, 1 skirt and 1 shirt for < $200. Meanwhile on Styleforum: :foo:
