A6000's discount reduced from $100 to $70 - still possibly the best deal on the planet!

I'm afraid their site malfunctions. What comes out of it is unclear. It does show $70 discount, but if you add it to the shopping cart it shows $100 discount. But then a confirmation email came and ...

Sony a6000 (Alpha 6000) ILCE-6000 24.3 MP DSLR Body Only/No lens included $649.99 1 $649.99

Congratulations! You have qualified for savings with your Hot Deals purchase! - $200.00

Congratulations! You have qualified for $25 savings with your online purchase. - $25.00

And finally:

I got essentially the same message, although mine deducted only $100 for the A6000, still a good deal. It also says "It [the order] is being reviewed," whatever that means, and I still don't have an order number yet. I am not in Canada but the US, and I tried twice to pay with Paypal and got the same message as Mike, then changed to a credit card, which went through but I haven't been charged yet.

Did you receive an order number?


I think it was a glitch and there will be no order number sent. They have a fine print saying that they reserve the right to cancel order at any time. Usually, confirmation email with order number comes shortly after online purchase. If it's not there - I would not hold my breath for it.

I'll try phoning them on Monday.


People calling is probably the main reason why a lot of orders get cancelled. Just wait it out and see what happens.

The problem is I'm leaving for a trip in about ten days, and I would like to know if it is coming. If not, I would like to try and find one somewhere else.


You'll know Monday, they'll either ship it or cancel it on a working day.

I mentioned this Dell price to my local Sony rep. He said Sony corporate was well aware of it and working with Dell on the issue. The A6000 is price fixed. It sells at MSRP from all vendors worldwide. He said that no one should be selling it for less than MSRP. He said corporate was dealing with Dell.
