Gog God ladies! thats a great deal. Hope it all works out for you. Please keep an update. I am very curious if it was to get rid of some oldies or really was a price error.

They told me 199.00

Honestly....I do not think they know what is going on.

I don't think they do either. All I know is mine will be here between the 23rd and 25th.... now that it is in the mail, I really doubt they can take it back from me.

It may not be in the mail yet and they may still be able to cancel it. Even though it may say it's been shipped, it may not have left the warehouse yet. Someone on another board was saying they got the same message but were told by the customer service person that it would never leave the warehouse :

If they are going to cancel it, they better refund my debit card asap.

Adding: DH just looked at our cc record and they never took it off our cc. We ordered the granite seat at about 830 EST last night, it was 'on' until late afternoon today, at which point I realized they'd taken it off and no change either way to the CC.

Got mine too. I guess the old saying is true, "if it's too good to be true, it probably is".

Along with their over the top return policy, this is another reason I avoid Target.

I understand them canceling the orders. It was a *mistake*, and would have been a VERY costly one for them if they'd honored it. They probably had a LOT of orders... possibly thousands! And losing probably over $100 per seat on that many orders really adds up!

So while it would have been a cool deal, I'm not upset with them for canceling my order. It sounds like they shipped the ones that were in stock (probably the 2007 models), but just aren't shipping the orders that would have had to come from 2008 stock. That makes sense to me. I don't blame them at all for that.

You got a notice that it had shipped out?

That's the thing that confuses me. Why would Target honor some but not all the purchases?

I'm not begrudging anyone who gets a seat from this, nor do I fault Target for having to cancel all the purchases (though it does suck), since it was a mistake, but I admit it's confusing that they would honor some of the purchases, while telling other customers no.

They're honoring the ones that were in stock and said they would ship immediately. Those of us who ordered the backordered ones were scheduled to ship mid-December. Ours got canceled.

Makes sense to me.
