    hello every one i was on AliExpress looking up 3ds accessories and flash carts, when i found a seller that mess up the price( i think they messed up the price) for crystal case's for the 3ds

    he is selling them in lots of 6 for 0.25$. i just bought 6 lots of 6(so 36 cases) for $1.38, ruffly € 1,04. i am planing on keeping some for me and selling the rest to my friends

    If any one wants one(or 6) heres the link

    http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Whol...ntendo-3DS-3-DS-Free-Shipping/1284272724.html

    the seller has almost 600 feedback with 98.2% positive

    Never mind the seller fixed his price

    If it is a screw up, that is really unfortunate for the seller.

    i don't think the seller screwed up the price because the first order was made on the 7th of this month.
    i think by now the seller would have noticed the error, but still $0.25 is extremely cheap for 6 crystal cases and the seller has some good feedback

    Yeah, that's true. If I felt like going through the hassle I would buy a bunch and resell them for like $3 each.

    They probably won't give it to you due to how much profit they will probably lose from it D: Of course there is always a chance they might give it to you and if so, you one very lucky person.

    It's their fault so they will have to ship.

    Are they legally bound to do so? I don't know the terms of AliExpress, but can't the seller just say "Screw you" and not send the items?

    just to let you guys know, the seller has shipped the case's, but if it's all of the case's or some thing else i will know when i get them
    i'll probably upload a picture of what i get in a month (or however long it takes to arrive)

    i uploaded a picture to prove that it was $ 0.23 for each lot of 6, so i got 6 lots of 6 so thats 36 3ds crystal cases

    hopefully they come through. They can't do that in retail stores and not own up to it, its illegal and called a bait and switch. so chances are you will probably get them only time will tell.

    I'm pleasantly surprised you got anything at all, let alone what you actually ordered, at that price.

    I had debated buying a lot when you posted the thread, but I use the Nyko PowerPak+ and I wouldn't be able to use the back half of it, and I cba to sell them.

    You got the correct amount of them?
