Ring Ring! Ring Ring!
ME: Hi, Do you have the Sony HMZ in stock?
Them: No, but we can pre-order you one. It should be about 3-4 weeks.
ME: Ok, thanks. Can I get my 10% back if I choose to cancel.
Them: Yes, of course.
ME: Okily dokily. PS. You have a lovely voice Emma.
Them: Oh, cheeky, you aren't getting any more cash off you scamp....
Ok, I admit, It didn't go quite like that at the end. Look, I know that some people have complained about them selling products they don't have, and I know what the website says but in this case it is moot - Nobody has them in the UK yet and they certainly didn't pretend to when I called. I knew exactly their game when I ordered - get orders in and sell em cheap. It doesn't mean they can't fulfill orders, it just means there may be a delay. I'm willing to wait a while if it means £140 off the Sony online price. I've also seen numerous websites have dodgy stock availability values. *If* people get them for the advertised price and in a relatively timely fashion, not in 2038, then I'm sure they will be happy.
I don't mean to sound defensive of them, but they have been fine and honest with me so far. And, yes, Emma does have a lovely voice.
Woe betide them if they mess me about though!
