Ordering lift tickets online and price =$0.00 ??

So, what would you do in this situation?

 

You log onto a popular resort website to look at ticket specials. They have discounts for multi-day passes -- 2, 3, 4,5,6,7....I think you get the picture.  Multi day purchases have to be made 7 days in advance, and are non-refundable within 7 days of use.

 

So...scrolling down you notice that...instead of a 15% discount, the 6 day pass has -- a 100% discount!!!  Surely this must be an error, right?  Just for kicks, you add one (or maybe four) to your cart, and it still shows up as $0.00.

 

You can press the button, and see what happens. Either it will get rejected by the site, or someone will notice the error and catch it, or you'll get free tickets. Or...maybe the last step finally charges you the right amount through another software "feature".

 

Do you do it?

If Im planning on skiing at said resort anyway, then yes Id do it. But if I have no intention of going, then I wouldnt, just incase someone does catch the error and bills my CC for $XXX.XX

Of course you do it! Where would the fun be if you dident? And if it works, why stop at 4? get 50 and sell em

For God sakes, tell me where, I'll try it!

 

I'll let you know if it works.

With my luck, they'd process it at full price, 100% of day ticket times 6.

Well, we weren't planning to ski there six days. We were going to ski there three, and then hit a few other areas in the vicinity.

 

So, if they charged me the real price, we'd be stuck skiing there for six days.

 

So, no ethical concerns? If it's their mistake, it's my gain?

 

Jag - it's not near you...but I'm not telling where it is anyway!

I'd have ethical concerns if I didn't think you'll get caught.

I actually called their sales number and told them what I was seeing. They said they couldn't get the same thing to happen when they did it from their computers -- but I'm not sure she was using the same dates. It's only working for certain starting dates.

 

She didn't seem too concerned.  Something tells me the correct price would come up when I finally hit that Purchase button.

Update -- when I try the same thing from work, the six day pass has then normal price, but the nine day pass shows up as $0.00.

 

If I was going to buy the six day pass anyway, I would've done it I suppose -- expecting that they'd catch the error and correct it. But we were only planning to ski at...oops...X...for three days, and at other locations for another 3 or 4.

I've got a secret...I've got a secret, Na-Na-Na-Boo-Boo...

 

 

Never would have worked for me anyway, just my luck.

I was only teasing.

Stowe.

 

Go to Tickets, and drill down under ticket specials and Vacation Rewards Program. Click Order Now. Select a date in March, not  February. 

 

From home, using Firefox, the six day showed up as $0.00, and continued to show up as that even when I added to my cart. At work, using IE, the nine day shows up as $0.00.

Perhaps for the first time, a BUG in a website that makes people HAPPY.
