No point in locking yourself in to today's price if it's going to ship in a week or 2. A lot can happen in 1-2 weeks.
I've already gotten a bunch of money back on my set from Amazon because the price dropped after I ordered. I don't think EE will do that for you, either.
I just called EE and they canceled my order without any quesiton. However, they did "Post" the charge to my CC and said it will take 5 days to release it.
I called my CC company and they did say it is "Posted", not "Charged" meaning if they do not claim it in 5 days, it will be forfeited and the money will be return to me.
I don't know, this is very stupid IMHO. Now I have to wait 5 days for the charge to clear, so I can re-order the TV because my credit limit is not that high.
I don't have a problem with the service of this company. I only have a problem only when a company fails to properly inform inventory status as well as immediately inform the customer if the item is backordered. In my case, none of these two took place! The next monday, it still showed in-stock. I also did not receive ANY emails or phone calls from them telling me it is backordered.
It seems like this is what I like to call it "Bait and Wait" where the company attracts you by enticing you with a lower price than many of it's online competitors (EE had the lowest price shipped to my door). Then they don't tell you the product is out of stock until you try to call. They "hope" that when new inventory arrives, it will be in time to ship out before you change your mind.
And if you DO cancel your order, you gotta wait 5 more days or whatever before your CC "releases" the post-charge.
