Did You Get Your Amazon Order? We Didn’t.
The internets were abuzz on Sunday when a glitch in Amazon’s system listed numerous comic books for $14.99 or less, many of which cost over $125. We attempted to take advantage but received the below email yesterday.
Our records indicate you recently ordered ‘Fantastic Four Omnibus, Vol. 1 (v. 1)
Amazing Fantasy Omnibus HC Brereton Variant
The X-Men Omnibus, Vol. 1
Secret Wars Omnibus
Wolverine Omnibus, Vol. 1
The Ultimates Omnibus
Daredevil by Brian Michael Bendis & Alex Maleev Omnibus, Vol. 2’. Unfortunately, due to a pricing error, we sold many more than expected. In fact, we completely sold out — we don’t have any in stock right now, and we’re not even sure if we’ll be able to get more.
As a result, we’ve had to cancel your order. I realize this is disappointing news, and I’m so sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
You may want to check our website from time to time to see if this item is available. If anyone is selling it, you’ll see a “More Buying Choices” box on the product detail page; if it’s not available from any sellers, you might see an “Order it used” or “Alert me” link. “Order it used” allows you to place a pre-order for the item in case another seller lists the item for sale later. “Alert me” allows you to sign up so we can e-mail you when Amazon has stock available for purchase.
I’m sorry I don’t have better news. We hope to see you again soon.
Bleeding Cool and TechCrunch are reporting that folks who had their orders canceled by Amazon are receiving a $25 gift certificate due to their snafu. So far we haven’t come across this generous offer. We’ll update you if we do.
