About this Deal

This past Friday, between midnight and 6 a.m. PST, 6pm.com, a Zappos sister site, accidentally made the biggest pricing error in the company's history. All items in the store were capped at a maximum price of $49.95--a huge mistake, since 6pm.com carries luxury items that can reach into the thousands of dollars. Read more ...

Did anyone get a GREAT deal during the screw-up??
What's the matter?

What a crazy story! Pretty amazing that they're honoring all purchases made during their mess up. So many sites simply cancel orders when a pricing error is made. Pat on the back, 6pm!
