View Full Version : absurd Amazon message

09-08-2007, 09:39 PM
OK, so I keep a ton of stuff in my Amazon.com basket to watch for when it goes on sale. You get an alert when you sign in. Now, I have seen crazy things, like when the memory card went down $.25 or something like that. But this one takes the cake. So, drum roll please ... for all of who, like me, have been waiting for the Sigma 30 mm lens to go down in price, you can now afford it!

The big question here is now, what should I do with all this money I save?

That redefines funny. And idiotic. :rolleyes:

Let me guess. They haven't bothered to tell you that their freight rates have gone up due to fuel price increases. :):)

Websites are mostly automated and odd things can pop up, with or without human intervention.

And of course there's someone out there willing to sue if this message hadn't popped up and they'd missed out on the incredible sale! :rolleyes:

thats as good as the final bill my dad got from his old cell phone company. it was for .02 cents, it cost them .38 cents to mail it.

WOW! What massive saving! :D
Obviously those messages are generated by their computer to send you info whenever there is a price reduction. :D

bobc4d: I think I can better that. I got a bill from a long distance phone company for a late bill of $0.

So tell us, did you buy it :confused::confused:

I hope you put that saving into a term deposit or stock portfolio, you've set yourself up for retirement now :D

Think of all the things I can buy with $0.01. What a steal.

How about everyone who reads this thread email Amazon with inquiry about this .01 discount? And maybe ask if we can use this saving for the deposit on the next 0.01 discount? :D Alrighttttttttt, it's just a joke.
