I wonder whether they are going to honour this?

It looks very much like an error of he decimal sign? Or a digit missing?

Oh well, I gave it a try. For that price I wouldn't mind having a spare copy!

I like your conviction! :D

And this is a 1000 copies only run? I will have 2 then - which means 0.2% of the entire production?! That's a higher percentage than what you get on most UK savings accounts these days! I'm amazed they seemed to have struggled to sell these ... ?

Or were more copies printed in the meantime ... ?

Thanks for your purchase of Elvis Costello’s Look Now Deluxe 7" Box Set. Unfortunately, this was sold at a single 7” price point due to a systems error while migrating to a new e-commerce platform. As much as we appreciate your business we unfortunately have to cancel your order. We are very sorry.

Because of the confusion and inconvenience, we would like to offer you a 30% off code (a $22.50 savings) on this box should you choose to repurchase. Just use code xxxxxxxxxx at checkout.

Apologies for the mix up and thanks for your understanding!

Well I got that email too - lets see how quickly they re-unite this fool with his cash, certainly came out soon enough!

(A big disappointment, not on a par with Ancelotti, but still a kick in the whatsits)

ba...you are right AGAIN!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

oh well, i had gotten a great deal (about $28!) for the eight 45 BEAUTIFUL box with extra BIG hole in the sleeve artwork version! this one alongside PURSE 12" record store day e.p. suffices to fill the collection in that regard.

i still await the decreasing price on the ARMED FORCES deluxe box at both Amazon and Target...currently at about $157.
i hold fast to my prediction of about $95 by Halloween. let us see. it was a stellar deal while it lasted. all my best, Benny

To all my friends - really sorry this didn’t work out for you - at least they made a gesture with the discount but not that impressive after all. I checked my very local record store and they should have the “French EP” available next Saturday so I’ll be queuing at 5 am to beat the West Devon rush :wink:

The old systems error - at least they didn’t publicly blame the trainee!
