Fixed problem by denying it existed


Slashdot
claims that Amazon secretly canceled orders for a large jazz CD set when it realized it had put the wrong price on it.

The CD should have been priced at $499, but had been advertised for £31.

Slashdot said that no emails were sent to customers informing them of the price change or of the order cancellation.

Amazon has a highly publicized price guarantee policy, and one customer who complained and requested the CD set at the $31 price was given a $20 discount off of his next Amazon order.
