    I really dont get very good discounts at all. In fact I just go to HD to buy my tools when they have 10% off. See and I still purchased the 4-piece combo when they came out.

    I dont even need a compound miter saw but I would buy 5 at 53 dollars if I could for that saw.

            So, I wonder who (at Amazon) got fired over that misprint?


            Or, (more than likely) who got fired & still had login privileges for the servers?


            Talk about a big OOOPS!

              In this day and age, it would surprise me if a fired employees login privileges weren't already canceled before they even leave the building for the last time.

              I know Amazon has made errors like this before. Anyone happen to know if they just eat them or do they make a fuss and back out of the order?

                  i'll answer that

                  this is not the 1st time i've been able to take advantage of a deal like this on amazon. the first one was about 75% off, not 91 lol

                  secondly, my saws are in route, picked up this morning by ups, they'll be here on wednesday.....i should've ordered 5 lol

                  i have a free trial to amazon.com Prime membership. it would have only been $3.99 to overnight each, but this not being that great of a deal, i chose 2day shipping for free

                    You know, if the guy that's gonna clean house just happens to be in a meeting...that leaves plenty of time for mischief. But, apparently, that person is no good at covering their tracks, because the price has gone back to "real". I've seen more times than I care to count these types (of employees) are (or can be) very loose cannons when the "don't get their way", and it is usually over next to nothing.

                        OSC, if its any consolation to ya I received the same email. When this was first posted, I was on this offer like stink on you know what. I did have my doubts that it would fly but it was at least worth a try.

                        Because Amazon sent out order confirmations acknowledging the $58 price, I suppose if someone wanted to make a big stink they could challenge it. Chances are very good though that all they'd get for their effort is a good case of heartburn. It was obviously only a huge mistake on someones part and, IMHO, I see no wrongdoing on Amazons part in cancelling my order.

                            CheekyMonkeyWrench, did Amazon really ship your saws on Monday or did you also get the bad news email?

                              Of course I'm happy that I will receive 2 of these saws, but it's dissapointing knowing that the many ppl I told will not receive them.

                              I wish I told ppl to select 2 day shipping, as I did.

                              Sorry OSC.
