Thread Details

I cant believe how often this company does this stuff. Here are some of the price mistakes that viking has right now. Add any others that u may find. Things that have a low availability may be OOS in some areas. These are definitely for one DOZEN when they say so. Since they sell other products of the same style just different colors, these are definitely price mistakes.

I wouldn't call these "pricing mistakes". It's more like unclear statements about the products they sell. Like an idiot, 6 months ago I ordered "25 dozen" G2 gel ink pens. I got 25 G2 gel ink pens. The boxes they came in hold "one dozen" pens.

This is no deal.

not surprising, same type of errors office depot has all the time, considering it is just office depot under a different name

May be these are the actual values, the big guys may be just charging high. No wonder Staples is a 11 Billion company, but I luv it though the manager don't luv me Smilie

alot of people get what they order... you just have to make sure it says "dozen" and not each and keep a copy to prove later...they fix their errors in the system as they find them... so sometimes people order and don't check

Well, about 2 months ago I bought a bunch of the "dozen" deals and I indeed got dozens for next to nothing. I have enough office supplies to last a lifetime. There was a lenghty thread over at FW about this. The problem now is that a lot of the stuff is OOS.....

I've ordered from them several times before when these "one dozen" deals were active and always got boxes of a dozen. I've got enough to last several lifetimes now, and some free stuff too.

NOT ALWAYS A MISTAKE. THIS SUMMER I ORDERED SOME MECHANICAL PENCILS AT $1.12 A BOX. I ORDERED 5. I GOT 60 MECHANICAL PENCILS. I SAW THE SAME PENCILS AT WALMART THEY WERE $3.49 FOR 5. SOMETIMES ITS A DEAL. PLUS IF YOU DONT GET WHAT YOU THINK YOU SHOULD GET CALL AND GET YOUR MONEY BACK.

Thanks for the heads up. I got some mechanical pencils, pens, lead, and highlighters. I am hoping that the quantities ordered will actually in units of dozens.
