Unfortunately, when you add it to your cart, it lists the price as $197.99. I was going to pull the trigger on several of these if the price actually carried over to the invoice. ;)

What is it with those drives and errors? Amazon mis-priced one of those as well. I leaped on the deal, but Amazon cancelled on me. :p
If you go to Fry's Electronics (a real store, not outpost.com), they have to sell it to you at whatever the price tag (plu) they put on it. I wish MacMall is doing this too :)

Yea there's nothing more gratifying than finding such a deal in a brick and mortar store. Unfortunately online stores don't have the same policy obviously :rolleyes:

They don't "have to" at all. Many store will, as a good will gesture. But they have an Errors & Omissions Excepted clause in pricing.

a friend of mine found a external hard drive with 1TB of storage space for £20 on the uk apple store a while ago. obviously an error, but he bought 10. the store had to stand by the price he bought them for and so he recieved all 10 for £20 each! score

no guessing what went on ebay the after he got them ;)

Contacting BBB

They HAVE to sell it at the listed price. Its false advertising if they do not. I plan on contacting the BBB if they do not comply with the list price.

I just submitted a complaint with the BBB. Hello $20 MyBook. Mistake or not, they HAVE to sell it at $20. I highly suggest you all do the same thing that I did if you want $20 MyBook. People have to pay for their mistakes. Period.

Good luck with that. My guess is that you will get nothing. Keep us posted.
