Would anybody trade an unopened Bendis DD omnibus 1 for some of these?

Looking at this makes me A) Happy that I can get the FF Vol. 1 for ass cheap and 2) Sad I did not get the AXM and New X-Men Omnibi when I could because fucking lord forbid Marvel reprint stuff like that and I could find them for less than $500 combined. Win some you lose some I guess...

I was hoping for both of those as well.
I read somewhere that there was supposed to be a reprint of the Astonishing Omnibus at the end of this month.
Can anyone verify that?

For some reason I mistook Death of Cap for the first Brubaker omnibus. But Fantastic Four will be mine!

Yeah, I was just coming back to post that there are a ton of Hardcovers at $14.99 as well, but there are a bunch, and I'm not sure which are the best deals, but you can just do a search over there for "Marvel hardcover", and choose for yourself.

I wish Amazon.ca was having this sale. :sad:

Well, I just ordered 4 books to ship to Halifax, NS, and Amazon.com only charged $20 shipping. Highway robbery in most instances, but for these that is still $20 US per book. And if they get hit by customs and charged tax - well, Amazon.ca would have charged me the tax upfront.

Thanks for the heads up!

Jonny Z
03-06-2010, 10:03 PM
in for Wolverine Omnibus, FF Omnibus, Howard the Duck, Nextwave Ultimate and Wolverine Old Man Logan. Not a bad haul for $75 bucks, if the prices stick and the books actually ship!

RoShambo
03-06-2010, 10:05 PM
No prob everybody.
Also, there's a way to get a free 90-day Amazon Prime trial(free 2-3 day shipping).
I'm cut/pasting from another board that I go to:

This works for customers that have already had a trial! And you don't actually need to purchase the book.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0679405429

• Click the link above for the Pride and Prejudice book page (Other books may work...)
• Click the Add to Cart with FREE Two-Day shipping button on the right side of the page
• Click Proceed to checkout button
• Log in with your account (May be unnecessary if you are already logged in)
• Review the trial offer details, then click Start my free trial

Just make sure to cancel the auto-upgrades under the Manage Prime Membership section of Your Account.

Enjoy

I got this awhile back, but I think it still works.

I believe they were all in stock a little while ago.
Death Of Cap is the only one in stock right now, with 3 copies left.

Death Of Cap is the only one in stock right now, with 3 copies left. It’s either Marvel liquidating stock, or a mistake of some sort. If I get the Howard the Duck book, I’ll be happy.

If it is legit, it is not likely a good sign for the future of the program.

I hope it sticks and you guys are all able to get your books.

I've ordered from .com to send to Canada and have had no problems with it. No Canadian should be afraid of ordering these.

Also, Bone Omnibus (http://www.amazon.com/Bone-Complete-Cartoon-Epic-One/dp/188896314X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1267948392&sr=8-1)
I really hope this isn't some kind of mistake, but it's looking more and more likely with soooo many books at that price.

I think the big indicator that these are mistakes is the fact that no list price is listed nor the amount of money you're saving. Everything looks very generic. Something had to have happened that accidentally listed a lot of books at 14.99. It's strange too that it's all the same price.

Oh I do believe they are in the system as 14.99 right now, but I don't think they should be. Nothing about this screams "sale" and everything about this screams "glitch". There is a weird randomness to it all.

I mean the Ultimates omnibus retails for 99.99. Barnes Noble has it on their site for 85.49. Having it at 14.99 would be an amazing lightning deal or an Amazon deal of the day, there is no reason to have it at this price randomly extremely early on a Sunday.

Hey, at the very least they'll probably give us a coupon or something out of this right?

Well, the fact that I can't see ANY yet-to-be-released Marvel hardcover for a pricepoint other that $14.99 confirms the glitch in my mind. All that needs to be determined now is whether or not Amazon will honor some or all of the prices.

WTF? I orderd it at $14.95. Now I'm not trying to look the gift horse in the mouth too much, but does Amazon still do this thing where they give you the deeper discount if you've placed an order already and the item got discounted before your order has been processed?

I think it only counts for pre-orders, if they lower the price before release. For an existing item, I think they'll stick you to the price you ordered at. (But don't quote me etc. That was my reading of the policy.)

Hence why I've cancelled and re-ordered the first Brubaker DD Omnibus, because they lowered that from $14.99 to $8.24 ten minutes after I ordered it.

arthurloewenkamp
03-07-2010, 02:14 AM
Amazon doesn't charge till they ship an item. Most of these (Invnicible Complete) aren't still in print and are already showing the ships in 7 to 13 days message. That usually means not in stock and will never be shipped, still hopefully a few go through. I think this is one where we'll get a lot of cancellation emails.

To be honest, if a few (or even a large percentage) of the orders get cancelled, I'll still have done pretty well. And if they all do... well, y'know. Shit happens. But a lot of the more mainstream Marvel stuff is showing as 'In Stock' so there's still a chance of me getting my Ultimate Galactus hardcover.

I just ordered 7 HC at 14.99 each.

I figure this is a glitch so I just ordered books that are "in stock".

I also did Amazon's free trial of their Prime 2-day shipping. I figure, the faster these books get in the system to ship the better chance I have of them getting to me at this price.

Now I just have to remember to cancel my Amazon Prime trial immediately after my books arrive.

Exactly. And since most of us ordered when the books were already in the "will ship within 2 weeks" status, those orders won't ever ship.
I don't think Amazon will ask Marvel for reprints so they can honor shipments where they're obviously loosing a lot of money.

Yeah, I'm sure Amazon's okay getting rid of all the books that are sitting in stock not selling. It's Long Tail strategy: Since you've already paid for something, it's better to sell it at a loss than to never sell it at all.

But I can't see then having to acquire new stock that's already been sold at a lower price than they'd have to pay for it.




This thing is big, I'm expecting some kind of official statement soon since many of those books made it to the 25 bestsellers list within a mere hours.

I'm not sure how big it really is. Does anybody know how Amazon calculates its bestsellers list? If it's based on a time frame of anywhere from the last hour to eight hours, then it'd be pretty easy to get on the list, because how many people are buying books online late on a Saturday night/early Sunday morning?

And that's the thing. I can't believe Amazon doesn't have a team of people sitting around monitoring this sort of stuff.

If they were going to fix it, it seems like they should have done so by now and the fact that a bunch of the titles have dropped in price.

That said...I am an eternal optimist!

And I ordered a few books that I'll save for birthday and christmas presents, making my friends think I spent a fortune on them :)

A lot of people at Cheapassgamer are claiming their shipment is in the shipping stage already, and they can't make any changes to their order.

Someone at Slickdeals said Invincible Iron Man was in their Goldbox for 6 bucks and change, and it would be pretty unlikely for a price mistake to enter the goldbox promotion.

More and more evidence that this may be legit.

Very cool.

On a different note, I don't want to be an hypocrite but if this thing goes through (and I really hope it will) won't it affect LCS sales? I agree that anything Amazon related is very bad for any LCS but this could affect online shops sales too very badly (midtown comics, forgotten planet).

Not in the long run. This can't last for much longer. I would imagine it will be over by the end of the day. So in the end it's nothing but a blip.

Plus I've noticed these prices are bringing in a lot of brand new readers/ old comic fans who haven't read in awhile. Especially over at Cheapassgamer, where they're mostly into video games. It's pretty neat to see how excited the new readers are about their orders. And this could lead to better sales at the local shops.

If Amazon didn't know about the glitch, they'll know soon enough. Take a look at the current rankings:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/books/4366/ref=pd_ts_b_navNo one told me there was a Twilight comic book. :ecstatic:


The only reason I don't think it is a glitch is because the prices started off low ($14) and on a bunch of books dropped even lower on Sunday ($8 ).I am pretty sure that they have automatic discounts which will kick in if an item reaches a certain point in their sales charts.


I keep checking my email expecting to see the "Sorry, but your order has been canceled due to a pricing glitch. Did you really think these prices were right? Are you out of your fucking mind, moron?" missive.Seems unlikely, but maybe they only have people who will monitor this sort of thing during "normal" business hours. :?


I have re-ordered my Fraction IronMan Omnibus elsewhere since I'm now pretty sure I'll never get any of the books I ordered with Amazon's "deal".

Once again I shouldn't have canceled my pre-existing order just to win an extra "fiver" (fiver is the new benbo hip word btw) on that book.Especially since Amazon has a pre-order price guarantee.

Someone at Amazon really fucked up. Could be a disgruntled employee. I have seen this sort of thing happen before in those cases.

More and more evidence that this may be legit.If it is legit though, stuff has to sell out at some point. Marvel isn't going to reprint volumes just so Amazon can sell them at their cost or less.

I enjoy the posts in this thread by people who just assume these books are on the way at this price. :lol:

I wonder how many people will be out today to buy a new bookcase.

Wow I order Walking Dead HC Books 4 and 5 last week for 23.00 and now they are down to $14.99. Apparently Amazon wont post-sale price change so I miss out on that. But I took advantage of Invincible Vol1 for $14.99 and the Wolverine Omnibus (over 1000 pages of Wolverine greatness) for $8.24. So I guess that more than makes up for the difference I had to pay for the Walking Dead books.

If it really bothers you, then just go spend the money you saved at your LCS on other comics. Everybody wins.

It stinks that a few of these books I had just gotten (I paid $25 vs. $15, so it's not horrible). As good a deal as most of these are, they're largely books I already own or wouldn't buy anyway, and in the interest if my credit card, I'm not buying just because they're a good deal.

But I did put in a preorder on the Martial Law Omni, because I really want that.

I bought Runaways Vol 1, Wolverine Omnibus Vol 1, Daredevil By Brian Michael Bendis & Alex Maleev Omnibus Vol 2, Criminal (Deluxe Edition) and The Complete Invincible Library Vol 1.

Exactly, they ARE professionals, which is why they don't take your money until they've shipped materials, and have policies outlined as far as glitched prices go.

Really, as long as people never had any money taken from their accounts, I don't see any reason for them to complain.

Come on, now..

Everyone here and all over the net is trying to make out like bandits, with the full knowledge that this is more than likely a glitch (which has been confirmed by Bleeding Cool)..

It's not like Amazon is legitimately advertising these books at these prices. The first thing I thought when I saw them was "this has to be a mistake"..

What the hell is your definition of "Legitimately" advertising prices????:rofl:

Whenever any website has their price listed they must also have a disclaimer next to it saying "Yes, this is the Legitmate price, we really really mean it"

Give me a break:roll:

I loved this line from the Bleeding Cool Article:


But if there is a lesson here, it’s this. Comics are too expensive, You make them cheaper, much cheaper, and people will buy them. Buy lots of them. Buy them more than anything on Amazon.

It isn't about exploiting the glitch, it's about the expectation that Amazon has to sit there and allow it even though that by ordering off the site you agreed to their terms.

Amazon isn't forcing you to shop with them, you shop there at your own "risk."

Sure, they'd be losing money on each book sold, but they'll make up for in volume.

I hope someone actually learns this lesson. People are willing to buy and buy LOTS...but people don't like $4/comic and $20/thin TPB or $30+/thin HC...find a way (I don't have the answers, you're not paying me to find the answers...figure it out) to make them less expensive and people will buy more.

I'm buying more comics right now than I have in years. Why? Because my LCS closed and I switched to buying from an online shop (Heroes Corner) where I get 40% off of most monthly books and more than that off of their "specials" of the month. If I was still paying full cover or only getting 5-10% off like I was before, I would probably be reading about half as many books each month or less.

And don't forget all the people who are going to complain about the regular prices for omnibuses and trades being too high compared to Amazon's accidental prices.

Sometimes I hate being such a completely cheap bastard.
Whenever I find out that I missed out on a deal (even if it was just a glitch/pricing error), something in my brain tells me to hold off on buying whatever it is until I can get a deal similar to the one that I missed. :crazy:

Taxman
03-07-2010, 11:06 AM
If this a glitch like some people are reporting they have to email those of us who already purchased the items, right? Because I bought three omnibuses, and I'm going to be livid if they do something shifty.something . . . shifty . . . :dunno:

This is one of the most bizarre things I've ever read on this board. If they'd accidentally OVERCHARGED you on an order, you'd expect them to fix it, right? This is the same thing.

Is it disappointing? Shit yes. I would have loved to get $900 of Omniboo for $90, but we all knew going in it was almost certainly an error. I don't think anyone has grounds to be angry that Amazon had a computer error.

I'm pretty sure Amazon's under no obligation to honor the price, especially beyond what they have in stock. If Barnes and Noble had a book on sale for $10 and sold out, they don't have to provide rain checks for everybody who didn't get to the store in time.

Would seem reason enough to fake offers to get a ton of people to log in and click through multiple screens. Not saying they did do this on purpose but one has to wonder.

it appears that the complete bone omnibus is shipping at the listed price of 14.99. i assume that the orders will likely be limited to the stock at hand. i know some of the books have a limited number of copies in stock, and i would guess that after those go out, they'll probably limit it

That's gotta be some kind of glitch. I can't see that book selling for only $10. I'll order it, then tomorrow I'll get some kind of email saying the item can't sell for that. Forget that, you're not ripping me off.

I accidentally ordered 2 copies of Wolverine and Secret Wars I, but at 8 and 14 bucks I don't mind. I'll either eBay 'em or gift 'em to somebody. Also, I received confirmation...but still, no actual 'charge'. I live in the same town as a distro center and I ordered items that were 'in stock' ('cept the Inferno book) so I *hope* it goes through!! Fingers crossed!!!!

Yeah, there was a bunch of stuff I'd have liked to get, like the third Powers hardcover and one or two of the Terry and the Pirates and Dick Tracy books. I had to convince myself that if I didn't need them at the standard amazon discount, I didn't need them for 15. I need to read Morrison's X-men.
