Interesting to see the purchase price different from the advertised price on the same site between two pages…
This company has put up a front page banners saying 80% off on 100pk DVD spindle that turns out to $9.99/- . Proceed further to place an order for this item, the item results page shows $14.48.
Now proceed further to check out page or the shopping cart, it shows the $14.48 and other summary of delivery charge etc…
Amount inconsistency? Where might this have gone wrong?
latency in price points? so the images for advertisement did not have this price?
Looking at the coupon page, i realized if the offer was In-Store only, and went back to the home page to check if it was available online too. Well, it looks like it does the advt shows “in store and online” .

ps: i am not posting this to pin point an issue on the site here. The intent is to probe other software professional visitors here to think what might have happened and how such scenarios can be prevented in their work situations.
