Somebody pinch me. They probably won't honor it. Order one just for the heck of it..

That product is not listed in their CDRW product listing, so I'm assuming it's out of stock.
09-01-2000, 11:03 AM
I ordered one...I hope they are stupid enough to send it..
09-01-2000, 11:20 AM
I just hope they don't chargme me full price and send it anyway
09-01-2000, 11:28 AM
I have the confirmation all printed out for a total charge of $7.25 and they CAN NOT charge more than agreed to. Worst case scenario, they don't send the product.

I found this earlier on another board and ordered one. I just recieved an email stating my order had been canceled because the drive is no longer in stock.
Its the deal that simply never was.......

So far the link has been down since I tried.

How can this be legit...is there a catch do we have to buy the software that comes along witht the burner. It just isnt reality to get a couple hundred dollar burner for seven bucks.... nevertheless i ordered one...lets see what happens... if anyone gets theres, drop a post
09-01-2000, 01:17 PM
I just ordered one, too. I was expecting the real price or the status that they are out of stock to come up. It never did!!$7.25 ain't a bad price for a decent burner. Of course, I know that I will get an EMail later on today that they can not honor this. But it's worth the try.

Jacked from their terms and policies page:
Prices and specifications are subject to change without notice. MegaHaus is not responsible for typographical errors. We reserve the right to refuse any sale for any reason, to verify charge card billing address, or to ship only to charge card billing address. All trademarks are registered trademarks of their respective companies.
I decided not to risk getting charged full price.

good idea Null... I felt the same way when I read that.
BE CAREFUL out there. this could turn into another Staples incident.

It's still worth the risk IF you have a CC company (like AMEX) that will go to bat for you. Bottom line, if you have an online receipt with a price on it, they can cancel the order, but changing a "new" price is illegal, and AMEX will cancel their charge.

If they decide to charge full price, what the heck would that mean?
I just used my cobalt card, which is a visa which came with $20 free on it. They wont be able to charge more than 20

Good try, guys...
Our system inadvertently posted the Yamaha YCRW8424S at a price of $0.00. Obviously this is a typographical error. Also, the YCRW8424S is no longer in production.
As a special offer for this confusion, we will sell the faster, newer, replacement Yamaha model YCRW8824 for a super low price of $215.00.
This offer ends on September 15, 2000.
Thank you for visiting MegaHaus.

Bought 4 in all.
2 Internal & 2 External.
A buddy of mine bought 2 and received his cancelation notice of his order because out of stock blah blah blah. I on the other hand who placed an order an hour before him have yet to receive a cancelation email of any sort. I will soon I am sure, but hey ya never know. Oh well, I have the printed receipt and if I lost 7$ on the deal oh well but with my receipt I have good proof to not get charged the full price.
09-01-2000, 07:32 PM
Well, I got an EMail that the order was cancelled, followed by another followed by another. And then about 8 EMails about someone who posted a response about depositing fecal material into your skivvies, Did anyone else who ordered this item get these EMails? I never got so much EMail from so many people at one time. What the heck is going on?
09-01-2000, 10:58 PM
well the site now says it was a typo...i ordered it when it was still $0 and i never got a cancelation e-mail...sooo...i'm wondering since they fixed the price and all...does that mean i get charged or what? any help here, don't feel liek having a $250 on my card for no reason...
09-01-2000, 11:40 PM
i've been going to deals pages for a very long time and i can tell you that 95% of these typo deals dont come through and sometimes just cause you trouble.

I found the EIDE version of this Yamaha drive featured as a deal on http://www.dealhunting.com for $136.95. Its the 8x8x24 EIDE version.
