Amazon's Flash Sales/Lightning Deals: FAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fun Fact: Amazon does flash sales that are insane... I mean it. I was reviewing our registry late last week to make sure that everything was updated when I posted my wedding technology post. I saw that the price on the camera we had registered for (we legit just have our iphones for photos) was blank. Curious, I hopped over to Amazon and saw that this camera (Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera): camera

Was discounted to... Drum roll... $100  !!!  Let that sink in... $100.

No joke. It is getting shipped today and if it shows up as something that is a) functional and b) not an April Fool's Joke, I will be floored.


That was the end of my original post on this camera situation. Since then, Amazon sent me a curt email notifying me that they had screwed up on their pricing, had held the money from my bank account for 5 days, and now is cancelling my order.  I will be contacting them later today to see how they are going to make this right. FAILURE!
