    Amazon pulled the PC420 offered through them.

    Hi All.

    I am very disheartened right now. After 2 months of researching the machine I wanted I finally settled on getting the Brother PC420. I had it on my wishlist on Amazon for $349. I was planning on buying this on the 18th for my birthday on the 21st. So I am sitting here right now showing it to my husband and noticed that the price is now $466 from a marketplace company. Then there is a note that says Amazon pulled the one offered from them for $349 because of some discrepancy either in the ad, product or whatever. It was brought to their attention by reviewers. I can't buy it for $466, not when it was $349 2 days ago. I'd rather wait. Money is too tight. Does anyone know why it was pulled? They didn't say exactly.

    This was the one thing I was really looking forward to.
    Hugs,
    Joanne

      I have bought several sewing machines from them, their prices bounce around all over the place. If you see a machine at a price you like, better buy it right then, because there are no guarantees. I did wait on one machine and it went down $10 for three weeks. I couldn't stand it at the lowest price, I had to order it. Turned out they never offered it again at that low price and it was $70 more the next week.

      One of my machines was $239 when I bought it ( Singer 160 Anniversary machine), 6 months later they were advertising it for $999. Go figure on that one! I think it is supply and demand that drives their pricing.

        Joanne, I saw the note from Amazon. I would take this as a good omen. They are obviously concerned about something to pull it from their inventory and do not want their customers to be disappointed. Personally, if it were me, I'd take it as an act of destiny and not meant to be. There's something better out there for you.

        There are a lot of very good quality machines in the $349 price range and many of our members have machines in that range and can give you some recommendations.

        BTW, Happy Birthday on the 21st. I share the same birthday!

          Some of these sellers are selling used or refurbished machines.

              I purchased this machine about 6 months ago and love it - for a small machine it really does great (automatic threading, cutting, up and down lever and limited embroidery). First saw this machine at Joanne's and attempted to purchase it at a good price. They immediately ran out and would not give me the same price when their shipment came in. So, I purchased this online from Walmart at a better price! Have used this to take to classes and to church to make charity quilts. Don't know why it was pulled. Hope you find a good machine for your special birthday!

                What a bummer! Maybe they will get the problem fixed and have it back in stock by the time you were planning on ordering it.

                  Yeah but amazon said they weren't going to offer it until whatever the problem was is resolved. That could be as simple as their own advertising. Could be that in the advertising it said _____________ kit or foot or something was offered but it wasn't. I wasn't sure if anyone knew.

                      Oh no! How disappointing!

                      Have you checked out any local dealers?

                        The machine is only available from Amazon or QVC. Anyone else selling it online is a 3rd party seller, even Walmart. Amazon had the best price. I think the next best price was over $420. I wanted to stay around the $349 price. I saw where some people paid $289 (probably a black friday deal). I don't expect that at all I just want my $349 back. I really think something was advertised to go with it and people didn't get it. I have to watch it every day now. I think if it comes back before the 21st I will just order it instead of waiting until my b'day. Keeping my fingers crossed that it comes back soon.

                          I know you have your heart set on this great machine, but still HIGHLY recommend going to a few dealers and see what they have to offer. So many of them sell GREAT used machines, with a guarantee.

                          I know lots and lots and lots of people that trade in perfectly wonderful machines to upgrade. I have done it myself.

                            I have that machine, I got it at Amazon in 2012. It's a nice machine. It was probably something in their advertising.

                            I bought a Kenmore from All Brands and it had a walking foot and FMQ foot listed and they didn't come with it. I called them and they said it was their mistake because they copied and pasted from another machine....and they would not send me them.
