    guess what.. i believe it was the price mistake..

    check the http://www.chumbo.com/info.asp?s=650590116751 again, the price went up to $106.49.

    i wonder if they would cancel all orders which were made this morning

    Now it is $106.49. The deal is gone....

    Hopefuly it wasn't a price mistake, but rather a 'limited time offer' and the offer just expired, leaving us who got in on the deal still valid =)

    let's hope

    well.. either way .. got no confirmation about it was a limited time offer. but if they would have to cancel the orders because of the price mistake, they could do that and i do not think we can do much about that. most of the time they have those "price mistake" policies in fine print

    btw, what is your order status? just hope orders would be shipped out asap.

    I ordered one at about 1045 Central Daylight Time and did get a confirmation email a couple hours later.

    Check your order status at the website (link in your confirmation email). That'll tell you what's up. Mine order's been sent to the warehouse. I wonder at what point it would be too late for Chumbo to cancel orders if this was a price mistake?

    my status is sent to the warehouse.
    i believe in any well organizated companies which do purchase and ship items, it will be ok to cancel the order until shipping. but of course, even thought the warehouse worker enters the information in the system and the system is indiciated the item's status is 'shipped', it still can pull the item back from warehouse and cancel the order.

    i guess as long as it is not physically SHIPPED (left) from the warehouse, they can cancel order.

    it is how the normal business does.

    I hope that they honor it. Regardless of whether it was a typo or not

    Don't count on them NOT canceling the order.

    This is straight from their website:

    In the event that a product is listed at an incorrect price or with other incorrect information due to a typographical or other error, Microgistix has the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for the product listed incorrectly. Microgistix has the right to refuse or cancel any such orders, whether or not the order has been confirmed and/or your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, Microgistix shall issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge.

    You can check it out at:

    I hope they don't cancel as I did get an order in received the confirmation email. . .but I'm not holding my breath.

    dammit, i was gonna order another 1 but they brought it up to $106.

    what's a chumbo? maybe the long lost cousin of a chumba wumba

    status on the card is "Order Received" @ $32.49 hope they follow through

    This reminds me somewhat of a time a while back when the treo 600 was listed on an Amazon partner site for 0 and the link brought you to Amazon to pay nothing for it. Needless to say it was a mistake and they cancelled all the orders..hope that doesn't happen to you guys on this.

    On my order of the 1gb card and an 8-in-1 reader, the card says 'order received' and the reader says 'sent to warehouse'. Hmm, I wish the card was 'sent to warehouse' ... may not be good news...

    Yea, and 95% of all to-good-to-be-true Internet deals are TYPOS. In any event, I ordered a couple, so I'm also hoping it will be legit. I can only wonder how many orders for these they had at that price -- news sure travels fast on the net...

    too many people order to the same product at the same period time will raise the "concern" to the store.
    oh well, will see how it turns out.

    If they cancel the orders, then that's a cheap way to get people to sign up for accounts on their site. Kind of a bait-and-switch if you ask me.
