Even Amazon Can't Sweat ALL The Details

While I think of “Amazon”: as a company that _really_ gets what it takes to do business online, even they can make the occasional mistake.
Those nice folks in the e-mail marketing group at just sent me one of those “because you bought… we thought you’d like to know about…” messages pointing out that “The Criterion Edition of Late Spring”: is about to be released.
Can you spot the problem?
On the site the price is $39.99 while in the e-mail it says “$39.95+$0.04 sourcing fee”. Oops.
I’m really not picking on Amazon here, just giving you something to point to the next time *you* send an “oops” to *your* list. Just show this to your boss and let her know that even Amazon can’t sweat _all_ the details!
