    Old TV sold, now I'm just waiting for the new one...

    Gotta love "Detailed" "Tracking".....what use is this? It literally fails to tell me where the damn thing is.

    I wonder how many of them there are available for this 'rush' though?

    I'm in the "they will be refunded" camp.

    On the other hand, every one that LG can supply (at any price) is a TV that Sony and Panasonic don't sell.

    From what I can gather most are getting refunds.....it's probably just the ones that caught this super early that are getting them, and I don't think that's too many people.

    Fair enough too... a price and a purchase forms a "contract" between buyer and seller, so they are obligated to provide the product at that price really.

    What if that transaction isn't clear and also it was a pricing error? Someone said they went to purchase at the low price then got charged at the higher price.

    And furthermore if it's a genuine pricing error why should they be obliged to honor it?

    So basically it's completely up to them to honor or not honor the price error.

    And thus essentially unless there is clear evidence of intentional breach of honesty (i.e. priced incorrectly on purpose), then there is no point pursuing it. And I don't really see how you could clearly show they did it on purpose.

    So in the wrap up, for this particular case, probably as well as most others, you just let it go and simply get your money back.

    True, but then the onus would be on the company/business to show they didn't...

    Honestly, it's a First World problem. People aren't getting their OLED for $1000 off. Diddums. Move on.

    Cool.
    We should all accept false advertising as "diddums"
    No business will ever take advantage of low income earners or those that might not read the fine print of the contract.

    You should start a thread on genuine false advertising. I think it'll be pretty scant.

    There's possibly a hidden message here that I'm not getting... But I'll just say Caveat Emptor

    Human error is just that, you can't really account for it. Occasionally things slip through and customers really shouldn't be looking to gain advantage from these mistakes.
