    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 researched this ages ago, however am unable to find a recent link, this happened after i found an LCD Monitor marked up for £17.00 instead of £170.00 in my local computer store

    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.

    in shops they have to honour the price on that is printed on the bottom left(even if the price is incorrect/for different item.....i used to work in a store), the problem is you have to argue black and blue with management for them to honour it.
    There is no contract with the store until the till attendant accepts your offer and takes money from you. Until then they can refuse sale for any reason.

    This is different, because the order was accepted and payment taken, so a contract for two licenses was entered into. If RM failed to fulfil that, there is a case for action.
