They should give you $119 if they send you a 680i.

OH ****....WE'RE GETTING MOTHERBOARDS. look what i just got 4 minutes ago:




this is NOT gonna end pretty i can tell you that much...


Yeah I just called TigerDirect and I asked the guy why I had received a 680i Tracking Number, but an EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 confirmation email from both Amazon and Tiger. The guy said he had no idea, and he looked up my order and said I bought a 680i. So he basically told me to just speak with an Amazon customer service representative about it. Any ideas before the flame wars begin across 5 separate forums?



*edit *check this out:

Got the same Ship Confirmation email with the mobo. Called and was told that they're requesting UPS Delivery Intercept returns, so at least we won't have to worry about returning it. They said they've already received a bunch of calls about it.

B) we get the product, file the claim, and actually get the card through either Amazon or Tigerdirect. We win.

We stand to lose 15-20$, we stand to gain a 310$ graphics card for 125$.

Good luck getting it worked out. This seems like shady BS on their part to me.

Thats pretty sad you took it to the BBB. First off, it was not a typo, it was not a human error. Those pages are generated automatically and there was some sort of error. Secondly, they have safeguards in place for this kind of thing, they clearly state in the policies on their website that theyre not responsible for price errors and they do not have to honor them. Not only that, every invoice I've ever received has had initials on it, meaning its checked by a human before it leaves the warehouse. Bottom line is you were trying to get something for next to nothing, dont except any action on your behalf from the BBB nor should you expect anything from Tiger or Amazon, they dont owe you squat.

Quote:
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. TigerDirect.com reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason.
Tiger Direct doesn't have to give you anything but a full refund. From a business perspective, they've handled this snafu ethically and morally.

Amazons Terms and Conditions dictate that items they list for other companies fall under the terms and conditions of those other companies.
