It's one thing to send a C&D and cancel everyone's orders, but very unprofessional to not have any correspondence to customers who's orders were canceled explaining the situation and rationale...  They have an opportunity to control the narrative and at least try to spin it favorably to their customers... wasted opportunity in my view...

what should they write? "you tried to take advantage of us by exploiting a glitch in the system. sorry we can't honor your order."
is there anyone who really thinks this was a legit deal?

This killed the deal.
I had posted great BB deals in the past all were honored.

Yep, deal sites which get too big hurt themselves.

The same crap every other site writes..."Out of Stock" "Invalid Promotion" "Listing Error"


Why wasn't it a legit deal? My shirts came out to $24/shirt. That's really not that insane for BB. $30 was always a sale baseline for white shirts IMO.

This was honored.
Only difference was no one called in to ask why the order amount didn't match..

That didn't have 6 stacking codes via a partner checkout site, and also wasn't anywhere near as cheap.

Really? You assumed they intended to allow stacking coupons in a roundabout way?

i actually have no issues with them cancelling codes and orders that were really glitches. But their PR department needs major help.
A simple, quick email, apologizing, and explaining that the codes werent valid would have been my choice of handling situation. Perhaps throwing in a one time 15% extra coupon.
Instead, they waited, and then made up an out of stock excuse. Poor decision.

I was worried about using a GC on the BB suit 2 weeks ago.  If I needed to return it, I'd be left with the GC.  With shirts, I don't have that problem.  So I thought...

I like my Tyrwhitts. Can't seem to find them for less than $40+ though.

Incognito, search "Charles tyrwhitt 3 for 89"

Just ordered, 103 w/shipping
If you're near Tyrwhitt store they might give u 3 for 89 too.

No
AMEX return protection?
It really isn't fair they cancel everyone's orders and get to keep the free revenue from gift cards that will maybe be used for mediocre deals or not at all (and you can call me naÔve but yes, I thought this deal was legit; it's not like the shirts were priced at $0.99. I've bought similar quality shirts at similar or slightly higher prices in the past).

What are BB GCs worth?  We paid $150 for $175 of GC.

Cease and desist from Brooks Brothers.
Wow! Hope you don't get banned from their partner links.

Itís possible, but it typically goes through a 3rd party.
