Thread: Heads Up: Local Crumpler Website

    Default Re: Heads Up: Local Crumpler Website

    I had gone into www.crumpler.com.sg. these happened:

    1. I went to 4 million dollar product page, the "Add to Cart" was there.
    2. i surfed other pages from the site, then went back to 4 million dollar product page, the "add to cart" had changed to "sorry no stock".
    3. checked the whole site, and realised "sorry no stock" for all products.
    4. maybe they discovered the glitch..

    haiz..

    yeah. all the items seems to indicate "no stock".

    either:

    1. they just realised the error or,
    2. their stocks have all been wiped out due to the news spreading

    I've placed my orders as well. King Single and The Bucket For Soupandsalad. Hopefully they will honour the deal. Even at this price they still earn like crazy anyway.
    don't think they will honour the deal. I mean I still dun understand why people expect online retailers to honour mistake in pricings.

    If you make a mistake in pricing, admit it and give a satisfactory explaination. I'll be glad to cancel the order. But it's not fair to give lame arse excuse such as beta website, out of stock etc. Not especially if there are almost 1000 people who have given their CC information.

    If you develop a website, you don't simply publish it the moment you complete it. There are system suppose to prevent such an incident to happen in the first place.

    frankly, if it is a good deal, I will be the first to jump on it.

    But for this case, it is so obvious that the pricing is wrong as the SGD pricing is the SAME as the USD pricing...

    I dunno... I wrote my piece on HWZ and I don't really want to repeat it here.

    Personally, I find such gang vulture-like behaviour pretty despicable, IMHO. Especially on the HWZ thread. I mean ordering in hope that the pricing is not a mistake is ok. But clamouring and complaining and insisting that they get the "mistake" price when told officially that it was a mistake is pretty lame.

    Remember behind every such mistake, there is a poor guy whose butt is on the line because of it.

    To each his own.

    sorry, my bad, I actually edited my post B4 you quoted my reply as I realised it did not come out the way I intended.

    If you reread my post, you will see that my opinons is mainly targeted at the HWZ thread. Common, there are like 50+ pages of that thread.... people insisting they get their bags at advertised price even when they know fully well it is a mistake. Asking more people to email crumpler, etc.

    As I have said, ordering thinking the price is real is ok to me, but clamouring after a "discount" when it is found to be a genuine mistake is pretty dispica... err... wrong to me.

    I have my opinon, and you have yours. To each his own.

    I understand what you mean. Anyway, I shall not quote anymore from HWZ.

    Personally, I ordered it is because I have always felt that the workmanship is good. I have purchased two and they stood up much much better than other bags that I've bought. I judge it by minimum 1 year of regular usage with tears at seams etc. Discount or mistake aside, I'd have purchase both of my orders sooner or later anyway.

    That aside, I do not really appreciate being fed misinformation by the retailer.
