Magic: the Gathering in the UK
If I was a conservative kind of guy then I guess I wouldn't post this incase they decide to decline all of the orders, but hey i'm feeling generous :o).
Fancy Snapcaster Mage for £2.50?
How about Woodland Cemetery for 15p?
An advertisement is only an invitation to treat not an offer. You make the offer when you place the order and it is up to them to accept it or not. At least that was my understanding of contract law from many years ago.
First of all, i'd like to extend a thank you to Dan Barrett for his support for Non-Madhouse UK traders.
Thank you for your kind words and support Dan, we're very grateful.
As for the error, we recently took on a new member of Staff, he decided it was his chance to prove himself and he made a mistake while uploading the spreadsheet with the prices. Mistakes happen.
Hope those who made the orders are happy with their 10% off.
I am going to channel Jack Nicholson in Mars Attacks and say... can't we all just... get along?
(Please no-one stab me in the chest with a weird crawling alien flag-hand thing.)
What Charlie said in it's entirety.
Every single time I have ventured out of my comfort zone and used a non-Madhouse UK trader, I have had a negative experience. Sure I was being a bit bitchy there with a knee-jerk reaction which may have been kinda harsh, but my point remains - if a small operation wants to compete against an established one that is so good at what they do, you need to up your game and not make sloppy mistakes like this. Getting the price right wrong on the flagship card of the set feels inexcusable to me, I don't accept that because you are a small company, mistakes are inevitable. If anything, you have to be more vigilant as the underdog. Also note I did give you some decent feedback in my response to our email, re: getting a full terms and conditions page.
marco i wish you would post here more often
see I was thinking what Marco said, but felt bad saying it :P
