I'm not surprised either, but I was hoping for good deal.

yep, status changed from "In Process" to "Rejected"... but they backdated the 'rejection' to 11/5 at 1:49 PM, even though the order was still listed as "In Process" for nearly two days afterwards. no email update. no way to know unless you check order status manually. not terribly good business practice, though they did offer up code "CSSAVE5" to save 5% off of future/replacement order when called about it... the hunt for a big FW drive continues...



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

So far it seems like if you contact them for any reason, it gets rejected. So I'd just leave it be.

Good advice - but it's probably too late. Once they received the first "Hi, I noticed a typo on your website...are you still going to ship me a $300 harddrive for $100?" call/email, they were on notice to look for these orders (BTW - initiated NO contact with them but am now Rejected).

Take another look, folks.

As of this afternoon, when I look at the order-details page, it says "rejected" and the change appears to be back-dated to 11/1.

But when I look at the status in the "Your Account" page, it still says "in process."

Don't rely on the account page. Click on the link to see the order details.

I didn't call until AFTER the "Rejected" showed up, and as noted, the 'rejection' was backdated nearly two days... I'm thinking they don't want to ship these puppies at the price people ordered them at...

I called and the rep admitted that the item number was for a DVD burner.All the orders were canceled. But they are going to send me a 5% off coupon because of the mix-up. Big woop 5%.

I have this same 'rejected' status, but it still shows a credit card charge!

If this is true, I WILL walk in to demand to see a manager.

Mistakes happen, but they should not be taking $113.11 from my credit card without sending me a product!

I canceled the first day and it took 6 days to get the hold removed from my debit card.

What they do is charge the card immediately, then several days later, credit the card. Interest free loan.

Also rejected, but never a hold or charge on cc.

Their mistake => No rejection email => Future business unlikely.

Yeah, now they only make a 10% margin. Boo-hoo.

I'm sure it's on its way...

I also purchased a pair of these drives, never made contact with Best Buy; checked my status on Monday, Tuesday, and yesterday observed my backdated Rejection.

They could send an email, it really wouldn't hurt them. :-( Well, I won't be ordering anything else. g=

Finally got my order cancellation email. They admitted it was a pricing error.
