Some lucky shoppers at Zappos.com
sister site 6pm.com
got a deal on Friday when a pricing error capped all prices at $49.95. The Las Vegas Sun reports
that the website lost $1.6 million due to the error because at that price many items were sold at under cost. Zappos has decided to honor all sales that took place during that time period. Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh took the news in stride with his usual good humor tweeting
"$1.6 million mistake on sister site @6pm_com. I guess that means no ice cream for me tonight."
The silver lining to the mistake might be the added publicity to 6pm.com The site offers "online outlet shopping" promising savings
of up to 75% off. It includes shoes, clothing and accessories
from brands like Nike, Oakley, Nine West and others for women, men and children
