What a torture!! Darn those people at!!
This morning I found an awesome deal at Slickdeals for HIS Radeon HD 4870 Video card, which would replace my showing it's age Radeon X800 GTO2 running with 3rd party cooler, unlocked and overclocked to X850XT PE specs. The deal was $213 $0 tax and shipping , minus $20, minus 5% Live Cashback = $182 - Its a good price for 4850, but A STEAL for 4870!

However the company decided NOT to honor the purchase and cancel the deal.

Yes I know legally it has every right to do so, but for future I never going to step my (virtual) foot at that place ever again and don't recommend to you to. I know for a fact Newegg would honor the deal even if they found out about typo.

Lesson learned and I'd continue my search for new video card.

Sorry for off topic, but I decided I had to do something about! Apparently this is NOT the first time they pulled such stunt so I don't believe it was a simply a human mistake as per members of slickdeals forums.

Eventually (about 2 months ago) I bought a Gigabyte Radeon HD4870 512mb GDDR5 Video card from Newegg for $200 After rebate (still waiting for it to come…)

P.S: Not fair! No with lowered prices on 4850/4870 cards anyone can get 4870 for about 180 after rebate
