Usually if the pricing error is under $100 they, as most online stores, will honor the errors. Sears. com had a pricing error of about $90 a few months back on a pole saw and they honored it. I ordered it and it arrived by the end of the week. Newspaper ads have always had disclaimers about pricing errors. To think that Internet pricing does not have the same disclaimer is just mere stupidity in thinking that Internet ads wouln't me inline with newspaper ads. It is normal for prices to sometimes be different from internet to store, but 90% off was pure fantasy.
