Rockers' Albums In Pricing Blunder
KINGS OF LEON, LILY ALLEN and COLDPLAY are set to soar back up the U.K. charts this weekend (20-21Jun09) - after their albums sold for just 44 cents (29 pence) in an online blunder.
Online music retailer Amazon.com accidentally offered records for the discounted price earlier this week (17Jun09), and bargain hunters quickly swooped on the site to take advantage of the error.
Albums by Metallica and Bruce Springsteen were also offered up at the low rate - meaning the discs could be set to storm the U.K. charts on Sunday (21Jun09).
A spokesperson for Amazon tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "There was a pricing error on a small number of MP3 albums. This issue has been rectified. Despite our best efforts, with the millions of items available on our website, pricing errors can occur."
