    Not what it said when I looked.

    A friend tried to order some breeches that were on sale for a crazy low price and they told her it was a mistake and she'd have to pay whatever the correct price was. I'll be interested to see if you actually get the blankets. Keep us posted.

    I ordered two, but also put a note in the order comments asking that if the total price in incorrect to please contact me BEFORE processing the order.

    Guess we'll find out!

    Oooo- good idea PT- wish I'd thought of doing that. Oh well.

    Poods- it says clearance $144, and list price 13 cents right above that. When you put it into your shopping cart, you get the 13 cent price. With shipping, you can get 8 for under $10. :)

    K, this is weird.

    With the posted link, the list price is $.13, BUT when you go back to the main page listing all of the stable blankets, then click on the Baker blanket again, this list price is $199, and the sale price is $149.... :-


    ETA... I'm actually having a guilt trip by placing that order because either someone is gonna lose their job, or Dover is going to lose a lot of money, or their going to piss off a bunch of customers, or all three! I know if they contact me to deny me the order I'm not going to argue... :) I'm such a dork.

    Right on the FRONT page and all pages at the bottom it says, "Not responsible for Typographical errors. Prices subject to change without notice"

    I will be floored if any of you actually get the blankets for $0.13.

    But can they charge us the full price without notifying us first? Or at least me with the note I put in the order comments?

    This is one of the sizes I ordered.. ;D

    I just did a chat with a customer service rep, they're going to have someone on the order desk call me BEFORE the order processes. I can't afford a $300 booboo!

    Last night I put 4 in my cart. Less tan $10 with shipping. Decided to wait till this morning and ask Mike about doing it. Told him I looked all over the site about cost. Anyways, looked this morning in my cart and total bill was $600. I removed the items.
    Although, thinking about getting the Ariat
    Terrain Waterproof Insulated boots for $59.90, reg $119

    Pixin, I thought so too!
    When I was looking for a new pair, I decided against the waterproof to save a little money, plus how often did my other pair get wet? Not often enough to pay extra.
    Plus, I got muck boots for really wet conditions when needed.

    But, it would be nice to have a pair of insulated, even for the next winters coming.

    I love Ariats!
    Thanks for the link :)

    yeah, I see that too, contacted an online customer service person and questioned it. She said the price is $149.80 and on sale for $144.90.
    I questioned about only being $5 off and she said the Baker's never change their styles and they just sell the same product the following year.

    I guess she didn't understand I was asking about the mistake too :-

    Heh, I ordered one, too, just to see what would happen and possibly score a cheap blanket out of it. Also ordered a leather halter.

    They called me this AM to let me know the price was a mistake and they'd canceled my order. :p

    Wonder what would have happened if no one had contacted Customer service?
