The $49.95 Store

We know about the 99 Cents Only Store, but a $49.95-only store?

That was briefly the price for all products at 6pm.com, the online retailer that’s now a subsidiary of Amazon. Sure, $49.95 may not sound cheap, but 6pm offers deals on designer items and is currently selling a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti boots for $1,731.99 and a Vivienne Westwood bag for $1,676.99. 6pm decided to honor the purchases and wrote a post apologizing to confused customers. The technical glitch, which occurred in 2010, led to a loss of more than $1.6 million, according to the post.
