100 LEDs for 61 cents... with free shipping?

Something is wrong.

(although at that price I'd buy a batch just out of curiosity).

Yea I got 10 lots just cause why not. We'll see what happens. I might have just scored 1000 leds for $6.10

Looks like you're the ONLY one! 
"No longer available"

I'm thinking typo??

But, it shows your order on the page...you should be good.
Nice!

Yea I just noticed the page went offline. I guess we'll see if the seller cancels the order or not

Ha!  sucks..... 'too good to be true' usually is.

Guess no "price guarantee" or "our-fault-for-posting-wrong-price" philosophy with them, eh?

I'd definitely post something about them not honoring posted price. Don't think it'll matter or make a difference....but I'd do it anyway.

Yeah! Wreck their feedback because they made a genuine mistake then refused to let you rip them off.

I agree to a point, but if they dont lose something then what motivates them to be more careful next time?

And at some point it is a promise of that price as soon as I click the buy button...

C'mon. You were almost certain they'd made a mistake before you clicked 'buy'. The retail price of those LEDs isn't a secret.

If it had gone through, well, you got lucky, but punishing them because you didn't is just childish. They're people too.

15cents for one pieces of the LED, is that expensive or just close to average?


The last strips I bought worked out at 22 cents per LED. That was four months ago.

Last year they were more like 50 cents per LED.

15 cents is believable.
