Has anyone else noticed strange business practices with Amazon Lightning Deals lately? During black friday week, I ordered multiple items that are being sold by Amazon (not a third party) that still have not shipped 3 weeks later. All involved a combined percentage off during BF week AND a lightning deal. Seems like Amazon doesn't want to admit the price mistake and is just delaying cancellation. I also had several items that weren't super hot prices or dramatic percentages off, but just as they were set to go live, the product was pulled from the lightning deals. In one case, I added the item to my cart and as I was checking out it suddenly went "unavailable", when the item was nothing more than a metal beer growler (a $24 item that was on lightning deal for $15) -- not exactly something that everyone was waiting to buy. Seems like deceptive trade practices are becoming the norm at Amazon.
