I was wondering what people think of this. I major department store has an item mispriced on their website for $0.00 and free shipping. Is it wrong to take advantage of such things?September 18, 2011 12:44 pm at 12:44 pm #810915tickle toe eitusMember

What do you think the odds are that your order will be canceled before shipment?…September 18, 2011 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #810920happiestMember
We tried it and they were gonna charge us 7.95 in shipping which was still a ton of $ off but then we got an email later that the order was canceled.September 18, 2011 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #810921Sam2Participant
It could still be a Chillul Hashem if you take advantage of it, even if there is no Issur Gezeilah.September 18, 2011 5:12 pm at 5:12 pm #810922YitBMemberSeptember 19, 2011 2:41 am at 2:41 am #810923metrodriverMember
Most stores that sell online (or otherwise) print a disclaimer (In fine print, if you will.) that whatever price they state, they’re not responsible for typographical errors. The “$0.00” can end up costing you anywhere from $10 to $100, to $1,000.September 19, 2011 2:34 pm at 2:34 pm #810924yovelMember
You could make a Kidush Hashem by writing to them that becuase you follow orthodox Jewish ethics, you feel obliged to point out their mistake.September 19, 2011 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm #810925CharlieSmallMember
How is it a Chillul Hashsem all they know you by is a screen name?September 19, 2011 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #810926apushatayidParticipant
I was in a major department store and an item clearly marked $18.95 rang up at the register as $1.89. Someone obviously entered it wrong, in the computer. They honored the price that rang up on the register, then advised me to play the numbers 189 in the lotto 🙂
They also told me not to bother trying to go back to the shelf because they already corrected the error. 🙂September 19, 2011 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #810927adorableParticipant
on our website at work we once had a mistake like that. i called the guy up and told him that I have to charge his credit card because we dont give away items for free (especially when its a $200 item!) he ended up cancelling!
