It's got to be a mistake - they must be selling at a huge loss at that price. Can't be real, surely?

I tried ordering one, but when I filled everything in and try to submit it I get the message "One of the products could not be added to your cart..."

The website gives no reason why the order cannot be completed.
Though I suspect that it cannot handle my (dutch) zip code.
(On the other hand it does allow me to select Paypal as a payment method.)

EDIT:
Oops, I just figured out that you need to ring them to place an international order.
I just got confused because they allowed me to enter an international shipping address and even calculated the shipping costs.
It's probably my fault for not understanding that "One of the products could not be added to your cart..." means the same as "Sorry, we do not accept international orders via our website".

I just put through an order with no problem. Took the two year accident coverage for a total of $126.

This seems like a good way also for international folks who cannot order directly through Sony Style. Like I said before, I called them, and it works for international shipments as long as you wire them the money first ($25 processing fee + standard wiring costs).

Biggest trap is that this was an error and that Tigerdirect.com will invalid the purchase. A risk most people are willing to take.

"Wiring" money rings alarm bells with me, I'm afraid. I hope this is a legit deal.

Tigerdirect is a huge Online computer-product retailer. I wouldn't worry about fraud.
