I would say that I'll keep it in mind for next time, but I don't usually screenshot twitter text. Once it's removed from twitter it's removed from the iPhone alerts too. Could be that it wasn't an alert after all, though I'm fairly certain that's why I went to the site.
If it was tweeted thousands of people would have it on their phones texts... i.e. it wasn't tweeted.

I don't think that's a price mistake. Look through other fixtures from the same company.

E.g Minka Lavery 3134-207 5-Light Distressed Silver Up Chandeliers https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000P6F644/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_R1NCzbWHRBSTD
If you don't care why would you comment?

Also big difference b/w 5 light and 12 light

Just because it sells for 2k doesn't mean it's worth 2k.
I was shopping for chandeliers recently and saw many comparable chandeliers for far cheaper.
Also worth noting my local store was able to handily beat any of the online prices.

It's more than getting lucky. Amazon reps, especially low-level reps are limited to how much credit they can provide. Based on my experience, it appears that each account is evaluated differently based on a variety of factors, such as how many previous credits were issued, how many returns, how much spent etc... This is the only logical explanation as to the huge discrepancies with the reps. I used to be able to get huge credits in a pinch. Now it's a fight for $5.

Just spoke with Amazon rep, she doesn't have a date when it will be available... She will NOT give any compensation for canceling, and after complaining about wait time and paying for prime service, no offer for extended month of prime. I told her I'll wait for it to become available...

Btw IME being very courteous and nicey nicey with chat reps usually gets you much further than threats and demands. Not saying you did that. Just saying...
