It may only be a penny for the minifig, but the store that has these is charging $4.99 for shipping for each one...
Just like Classicmiley said, shipping is $4.99 each. I added 10 to my cart and the shipping was $49.90. Way to good to be true...
There is a UK seller doing the same thing. Surely that shouldnt be allowed.
Minifigure sale fail!!!!!! I saw series 5 at my local TRU store last week.
They are just 1.66€ on my local supermarket.
Brickset should be embarrassed for advertising this! This is not a sale.
The Bargain Watch system is designed to compensate for the shipping cost when calculating the level of discount, so it's unclear what's happened here, and now the deal that was available at the time of the update is gone, I don't think there's any way of checking.
I was about to go nuts and then read about the shipping. *continue what I was doing*
I can only assume that at the time the price was fetched the postage was indeed $0, hence it appearing here. Let's see what happens when the price is fetched again and if it's still wrong, I'll investigate.
That's a problem with Amazon and combined-shipping. It's not smart enough to figure out a shipping rate for multiple items, and I don't think the software is set up so you can feed it info on shipping for additional items.I bought some used CDs from a friend of mine on his Amazon store and we wound up concluding the transaction outside of Amazon.
Noticed this just now. :P Funny. :PEDIT: Wait, the postage is $4.99, and Brickset should count this into the price, but it doesn't! It says there's free postage!EDIT 2: @Huw: Can't you do a manual data fetch?
I did go nuts. And Amazons new method of quick check out left me realizing I rushed and had to call to make sure my $150.00 order was canceled. Thumbs down on this one.
This is why all of my saved Amazon searches weed out non-Amazon sellers.
@sinfanti - that's a great idea. I never thought to even investigate that possibility. That would actually make Amazon a usable site again, back like it was before they let the ebay-like vulture retailers in.
