Update: 4/18/11 It looks like everything has been fixed over at the Disney Store Online. They have SINGLE blind boxes of Jr 3’s for $8.95. Get them while you can!

Update: 11 AM One of our listeners sent us his receipt for several cases of Jr 3’s for $8.95 a piece. The order was made at 3:30 AM PST. This means that the price did actually go live early this morning. (We thought it might have been just a placeholder.) Check out the at the bottom.



Over at the Disney Store Online today, the Jrs 3 series is up… and sold out. That was super quick. Well until you look at the price. Something is up with Disney, because they have the tray of 36 listed at the price of $8.95, instead of individual boxes for that price. We expect that to be sorted out. (I’m surprised to see a set added on a Wednesday instead of a Friday.)


Wow that’s a good score. We wonder if Disney will honor this price. (Unlike with TailSpin, this is clearly a clerical error and we expect Disney to just cancel all the orders for this case at this price.)

Wow, what a deal. I seriously doubt Disney will honor this price, there is no way. But if they did, someone just scored.

They did not honor the price as it was an item that they received from the Parks (what I was told anyway). They said the price SHOULD have been $89.95, but that isn’t correct either. So, people could still buy the case @ $89.95 if they wanted. If not, they canceled the order and gave a $10 coupon for your trouble. Not too bad…

They called me and offered me the case as 89.95 as well and not the individual price. Weird counteroffer.

Bait-and-switch is a form of fraud, most commonly used in retail sales but also applicable to other contexts. First, customers are “baited” by advertising for a product or service at a low price; second, the customers discover that the advertised good is not available and are “switched” to a costlier product.

I bought one case for 8.95. Then they called and said sorry. Only one vinyl for 8.95. No cases available. Gave me a 10.00 gift certificate. Another not so great Disney store experience.
