    I did this all the way through the purchasing process and it qualifies for the free shipping even though it is less than $25. Cool. Now I need to make up my mind as to whether or not I really want it before pulling the trigger.

    Must be a mistake -- it's telling me 37 bucks now.

    I placed my order last night, and it's showing up as $14.99 for both, to be delivered Sept. 27. The price does not change until you go to checkout and finalize your order.

    BOOO AMAZON!!!! Misrepresenters and charlatans!!

    When you list a price publicly, you honor it.
    End of story.
    That's called good, honest bidness.
    It's what modern society is built upon.
    The price was caried all the way through checkout,
    and confirmed in an email.

    This is misrepresentation.

    BOOOO AMAZON!!!!!

    Update: Amazon placed the order, showing the price as $14.99. They sent me an email confirmation that showed the same price. Then I received an "Your Amazon.com order has shipped email"email. A few days later the order arrived (Amazon Prime trial subscription gives free 2nd Day shipping).

    Today I checked my credit card online and Amazon charged me $39.97. I then checked the email that it had shipped and it showed $39.97, but nowhere was there a notification that they had changed the price. I have a PDF of the order screen (Mac OSX allows you to print to PDF) showing the following:

    Item(s) Subtotal: $39.97
    Shipping & Handling: $0.00
    Best Value Savings:$-24.98
    Best Value Savings: $0.00
    -----
    Total Before Tax: $14.99
    Estimated Tax: $0.00
    -----
    Grand Total:$14.99

    It's the same on the confirmation email also. I requested a refund of $24.98. If they don't give it to me, I'll go to my credit card company. I have indisputeable proof, and every other time I've had a dispute with a merchant, they've backed me up and issued a chargeback. I can't return them as I opened them before knowing what Amazon was pulling.

    I got the order cancellation email too. I just got another cancellation email which I thought was for the heavily discounted scale I bought two weeks ago and which still has not shipped. It turns out it was a duplicate of the email cancelling the REM DVD-CD. My opinion of Amazon.com is dropping precipitously and I spend thousands per year with them.

    I just got an email from Amazon.com that I qualified for the promotional price, but that they didn't apply it correctly. I will see a refund of $24.98 in 2-3 days on my credit card.

    Possible lesson? If there is a price mistake on Amazon's part, and your order was using 2nd Day (or faster) shipping, they may not have time to cancel the order before shipping it to you, and therefore have to honor the price.
