Whoops: Amazon, apparently wrong, priced a bunch of very expensive camera equipment for $ 94.48 on Prime Day – and honors at least some of the sales.
First, someone noted that a camera that was normally priced at $ 548 was listed for $ 94.48 and shipped the deal to Slickdeals. It was made to the website and soon commentators commented a lot of other expensive cameras, camera equipment and camera bundles were listed at the same price, PetaPixel reports.
The users started sharing their hauls, including a commentary that bought a $ 13,000 lens and one that scored a $ 5,500 camera, both for $ 94.48 piece. Some even reported pricing at Best Buy and other retailers. Fuji Reports reports that there were similar reports from Amazon (probably accidentally) that marked camera equipment 90% off Prime Day 2018.
But would Amazon cancel the orders? No, or at least not all of them: Many users reported being notified that their orders had been sent. others talked to Amazon customer service and were told the orders were being sent.
The day after the orders began to be placed, someone had already received their order. Some of the reasons that aren't clear couldn't see the $ 94.48 price on their Amazon accounts. others saw their accounts locked by multiple orders; Still others simply didn't see the deal before it expired and came to the post to complain about their bad luck.
PetaPixel suggests that if orders were placed on order, they could be canceled and refunded, but "all that is already handed over to shipping companies seems guaranteed to come to the paid price."
Will Amazon lose money over the incident? PCMag says: "It's going to hurt." Amazon has not commented, per Business Insider. (Read more Amazon.com stories.)
