    Was that taking into account Academy had everything 30% off last week, so that $20 shirt was $14. Academy price matches as well and will beat the price by 5%

    I’d love to have them ship as much as you would but literally no one I’ve talked to outside of this thread has heard about it. Putting the hold on the credit card is where I think there’s a legitimate complaint, but not honoring a price mistake is a complete non story whether it’s on the news or not. This is normal behavior for major retailers.

    this thread isn't the only place for me. in fact it was one of the last. this was definitely a significant story here locally and it helped get this done

    This is exactly correct. No retailer would honor that price mistake. I am speaking as someone who worked for a few major retail corporations over the last decade. It is a big difference when one customer comes in with a price mistake as opposed to potentially thousands. The amount of coverage this has gotten has made me laugh. It really is a non issue. And if you believe Dicks's local competitor would have honored those prices you are sorely mistaken. It's pretty simple, Dicks should refund your money. There should be no hold. If they wanted to do something to apologize for the pricing error then a $5 or $10 gift card would have sufficed.

    It was the lead story on local news on 2 different channels.

    Got email from Dick's last night saying they'll be contacting me in the next 48 hours to tell me how they're going to resolve the problem; but that they intend to honor the prices they advertised provided they have enough inventory to meet demand.

    Out of curiosity, how much was the order that was canceled if you don't mind saying?

    Only like $40. They sent the gift card based on what I would have saved. Rather incredible.

    I got the gift card reimbursement too. Though it said only some of my items would not be fulfilled, and I haven't reviewed the email to say which ones.

    When the deal was live I bought a jersey for myself and the wife, zip pullover, a polo, and a fleece for the wife.

    Got all 3 of my jerseys processed. Good for Dicks for doing the right thing! Someone mentioned earlier about being in retail saying their company wouldn’t honor it but I’ve been in retail management and I know the various company policies and law in some states in store about incorrect pricing. Not a doubt in my mind that their error would be fulfilled!

    Yea you are the poster that was completely misinformed about retail. I don’t think you understand the ramifications behind a PR issue like this. Honoring this pricing actually still makes a tiny profit for Dicks. The only issue here was supply.
