    As far as I know, mine went through for the Smores one. I called back after the first person turned me down. Let's hope they don't pull a Target. This is DD's birthday present!

    Amazon customer service number(or there is a button that says let amazon call you right back) and just say you saw the 100.00 off under the december deals on smores, kota and Butterscotch. I would say your friend just got the deal as well(so they know you know what you are talking about). If they say No, I would call back and get another person. That is what people are doing...

    Blah. They just told me it's not a valid promotion, it's an 'emerging issue' and they have techs working on it right now. LOL Sounds eerily similar to Target. Eh, well. I hope everyone who ordered gets it - that's a fab deal!

    Saw this on Gotta Deal earlier tonight. My friend bought her daughter the Butterscotch Pony for $79. She had to call twice, but they adjusted the price for her. I debated about getting it, but I had already bought so much for the boys for Christmas already.

    How come they are adjusting it? And, some reps will do it and others won't? Was it a wording mistake in their ad?? Anyone know?

    That is what I am following the gottadeal site too! LOL!

    Yup, I think it was a pricing error in a way. And I have no idea why one rep is and one rep isn't.

    Glad some more got the deals. It is so hard to not get Kota....

    Re: KOTA the dinasour-99.00, Fur Real Pony-79.00, Smores'-99.00

    what the deal probably is, and i can't imagine that ANY reps are lowering the price further, is that kota's already marked down $100. why would people think they could get another $100 off? the retail price is $299.99 and the listed price is currently $199.99 - that's $100 off. sheesh people!

    I am not sure exactly how I haven't followed it closely since I don't need these, but i believe it says 100.00 off, and the have to honor it(as alot of the supervisors are saying).

    SHEESH!!!!!

    Re: KOTA the dinasour-99.00, Fur Real Pony-79.00, Smores'-99.00

    The original ad said "receive $100 off at checkout", so that implies that once you put it in your cart, you will get an additional $100 off the price. So, I believe that is what the reps are doing. Not sure if they are still doing it this AM, though?

    Because the page read "Save an additional $100 off at checkout". They have since changed the wording.

    SHEESH!!!!!
    IT IS $100 OFF!!!! that's all i'm saying - just like when you click the link here for toys that are up to 60% off you get directed to this page and what do you know? all those toys are discounted up to 60%. i don't think anyone would then expect an additional discount - that's not what the sales page says - so when you're looking at the holiday event page on amazon and scroll down to see where it says $100 off kota or those horses, it doesn't say "in addition to current markdown" or anything else that would lead me to believe that it's $100 off the already discounted $100 off price. clear now?

    if it previously said "an additional $100 off at checkout" then fine. they honored it, it was a mistake, it's now been corrected. but as i read it NOW (and i only did read it this morning since i'm not buying my kids big, obnoxious, loud toys) i didn't see how anyone was entitled to a further discount since they're already marked down $100-$120.

    great - i wasn't disputing that it ever said that, i believed it. i only looked this morning and it no longer does


    and i wasn't ripping you or anyone a new one - i was just a little shocked, myself, at the way people were acting. like OMG let's call amazon and freak out - even after amazon took steps to correct their mistake people are still promoting the previous deal (error or not) and suggesting that customers call to get their way. it just reminds of the target/britax fiasco all over again and while i don't care what anyone else gets their kids for christmas, i am against greed. maybe that's why i came across as rude when i said i wouldn't get these things for my kids, and while that's true, it is besides the point. i'm glad that some people got in on a great deal but i don't think people should be urged to call and complain until they get an additional $100 off something that is already clearly marked down. that's all.
