there's an odd one were if the shop owner makes a mistake with a price tag say puts a fullstop in the wrong place and agrees that the price tag has the wrong price then they must sell it at that price. however from researching it looks like this changed in the year 2000-2001, probably to counter internet price mistakes like this BBQ one.

I am with HDUK a Hot deals site. There are often silly prices flagged up and sometimes you get them at the silly price, it's always worth a try. Although with an item this big it's unlikely to slip by.
Recently RM did Win7 licences (student) for 2 computers. When they arrived the licence was for 1 PC. I eventually made them change their mind and even contacted Trading Standards. I eventually got the 2nd disk and licence.
