    I was checking Futureshop.ca for discounts on last-gen 1GB Time Capsules. They're still selling those at the same price, funny enough, but the new 3GB models are listed at $319 for web orders. Not sure if this is just a mistake or how long it would last, but I thought I'd give a heads up to Canadian buyers!

    Edited to add: argh, that should read 3TB, not 3GB.

    Apple's MSRP is $499. So it's a savings of about $180 for anyone interested in a new TC. Not sure how long it will last before they notice.

    Thanks, I just ordered one. It's a pre-order, FYI. Supposed to ship July 4th. Great deal!

    p.s. It's 3TB... :)

    Ah yes, I see my mistake now. 3GB would've been a horrible deal, but 3TB isn't bad! :cool:

    I think it would be hard for them to do that if they've already charged your credit card. Stores can correct mistakes in flyers or promotional material but if they've already made a sale at the wrong price, the onus would seem to be on them to correct the mislabelled pricing.

    They don't charge your credit card until the item is shipped

    Price is jacked back up. Deal is over, hopefully they honor their deal.

    They cancelled all the orders without even so much as an email.

    Yeppers, they cancelled my order too. Future shop sucks, I will remember this.

    Do you think there's any point in complaining to Apple about how Future Shop treats Apple customers? Oh, have I mentioned Future Shop sucks?

    FYI I tried emailing them directly and got an error. So I sent feedback directly on their site. customerservice@futureshop.ca will just send you an undeliverable error message.

    This is a pretty common practice. Companies make price mistakes all the time (Dell is notorious for it) and have to end up canceling a bunch of orders as a result. They aren't bound by anything to honor price mistakes (especially big ones like this) and usually have language on their customer service page about situations like this.

    No sense in getting all bent out of shape about it.
