Great Purchase or Greatest Purchase?

Postby commavegarage on Wed Jan 16, 2013 10:10 pm

Tonight I was strolling the BC bookstore on line for a good framed photo or something...and look what I stumbled upon:

That's got to be the last kick to the groin of Montel. His gear is really worth 1 cent?

Edit: Spaz was just hired in the bookstore department. The previous price establisher (who was an African American) was immediately dismissed due to violation of staff policy. The released staff member has already contacted the Temple bookstore about a potential opening. When asked to give a statement, Bookstore Manager Sadface said, "We need more goldilocks. I've had enough of these dreadlocks!"

you got to love how the mongoliods who run the athletic office (gene's minions) didnt contact the bookstore and buy them all for a penny then use them as a promo for this awful season coming either as a promo for the worst game or for a new season ticket holder or something


(while you read this a minion is as well and cant believe his own stupidity)

Since all of the other jerseys are 70 dollars, I'm guessing this is one of those situations where it's a mistake in the listing, someone will catch it, and they'll cancel all the orders. But there's a chance they honor them at 1 cent, so why not?

I got one for me and one for my daughter. It brought the avg price down after shipping to $3.50 each. What a good end to the day. I knew I was on this board for a reason.

Are they any lawyers of this board to sue the bookstore?

They should have sent a reason why they were canceling, instead of just a cancellation notice.

Does anyone expect BC not to screw things up as usual? In this case, even if it is a mistake, just email the buyers say there is a mistake and offer 20% off their next order. You screwed up, man up. Its cowardly just to send a cancellation. I bet many people actually thought they were trying to unload his jerseys because Spaz hates winners.

I ordered one too. It's only available in "BC Cardinal" now so maybe some of them went out? I'm expecting a cancellation but I figured it was worth a shot. The bookstore is clownshoes.

I ordered a cardinal one just now. Kind of foolish that they're canceling orders but leaving it up.

It doesn't get more "BC Bookstore" than that.
This is DGF. Thanks for watching BC sports on your smartphone. If you're in the Chestnut Hill area, watch BC sports at Alumni Stadium and Conte Forum, 2601 Beacon Street Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.

I also think it's funny that they officially call it "BC Cardinal" now and don't even hide the fact that they don't use the official school colors.

I purchased one at great discount a few months ago, but now want to exchange it for the $0.01 version. It still slightly smells of Capn Morgan nips and shame, but hopefully they will exchange it.

The Montel jersey was down to $30 during the season and I considered buying one then, but BC was still employing Coach Fuckface at the time and I didn't want them to get any of my money. I'm glad I did not give them $30. I want my $0.01 jersey damnit.

I wrote an angry e-mail asking why they cancelled my order and got this reply:

Your other item(s) have been cancelled on your recent order placed with the Boston College Bookstore due to the item no longer being in stock. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. If you would like to call and place an order for a different item directly we would be happy to assist you with that. Please give a member of my staff a call any time Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm EST. If you have any other questions please let us know.


If it's out of stock, why is it still up and attempts to purchase it go through?

I also sat at my computer last night and ordered the jersey 10 times. All ten orders were cancelled an hour later. :lame

I took them up on their offer to call for more info - apparently the penny price point is their internal code for discontinued. They are having a call with their website provider to figure out why two penny items were posted for purchase.
