    There's something I want to get on TFSource for preorder, but the price is lower than other places... If I order it, and the price goes up, will they charge me the difference, cancel the order, or honor the price?


    Just curious...



    Thanks

    Honor the pre order price.

    I believe they'll honour it.

    I've found BBTS to do so, so i'd imagine TFSource would wish to match the competition if nothing else.

    Okay. Just curious. They have The Takara Voyager Prime Breakdown for the price of the deluxes... I just wanted to see whether or not to pull the trigger...

    Yeah, if you pay the preorder price, you get a discount. That's how preorders work.

    They honour the price you pre order at.

    In that case, I think they'd scrub the preorder on the basis of incorrect product info.

    Personally, i wouldn't blame them for doing so.

    I figured I don't have anything to lose. If I get it, I got it at a good price. If it gets canceled, I'll still get the Hasbro one for $20 or so and save money.

    Erm, I kinda have a TFsource question too (hope this isn't thread hijacking). I'm considering preordering the Green Giant giftset. Apparently you get free shipping on orders bigger than 150 bucks. However this only applies to US residents: they do mention that international does get a discount this way, but does anybody know how much that discount is?
