    I was looking at bass amps last night and came across this acoustic brand 300w 1×12, normally $499 on sale for $99. Tried to order it from my computer, got all the way to checkout and it said item not available. I tried again this morning from my phone (just for the heck of it) and it went through! Now I get to see if it is actually available or not. Anyone have experience with this kind of situation?

    Yup. Seen it happen without changing to my phone. Placed an order but sold out. Tried it again success! Can't recall the item.

    It's on the guitar center website. I got my confirmation email, but the order hasn't been processed yet.

    I figure that when they run a sale at 80% off, there is only one left. Lol. The page still says available and ready to ship.

    Don't know if you noticed the shipping availability date. I'm so stupid. I just bought cat food and I don't have a cat but it was a deal I couldn't pass up. Now I either have to get a cat or sell this to someone who does. Mine went through right away but the expected ship by date is 8/3/19 so I'll be waiting awhile for it. Got my Paypal confirm but not the GC. Hope they are still in business in August!

    So I'm chatting with a GC rep. This is what I got back:
    "So unfortunately we did run out of stock right before you placed the order. And because it's a discontinued model we wont be getting anymore in." So I asked when I should see it credited back to Paypal: "You should see those funds released back to paypal in about 3-5 days. Sorry about that, could I get something else on an order for you today?" Wondering if they are just wanting to use my money for a few days. Interest free loan.

    Could be. I did get 2 emails from GC. The FIRST one said, "We're sorry you changed your mind and canceled your order." The SECOND one was the confirmation. On the bright side, this is easier to explain to the Mrs. Viking.

    Lol. Yeah, I got pre-approval from the Mrs.

    I only got a confirmation email, so fingers crossed.

    I've been looking at those, too. Luckily my wife's dad was a Harley guy....
