A while ago I ordered a 10TB backup drive for $80, knowing it was a pricing mistake. Amazon cancelled the order and gave me a $20 gift card. I believe whether or not the retailer has to honour pricing mistakes depends which country you live in (I'm in UK). Annoyingly, the $20 gift card wasn't applied automatically to the next purchase, as it was supposed to (maybe because it only applies to USA Amazon?)

(Funnily enough, the pricing mistake did manage to get the product to be the #1 best seller.)
