Just went looking on BD for the base set for Skulls and Shackles and came across the "Spires of Xin-shalast Adventure Deck" (Deck 6 from Rise of the Runelords) for £6.12.

Apparently released today according to their website.

Just as a cautionary comment. I pre-ordered this from them months ago. It's showing on their system as available and it's been with other reputable online retailers for a couple of weeks. However, I've not received my copy from BD yet.

I've contacted them and they said that no-one will get their copies until pre-orders have been settled. I noticed this thread and think it's somewhat rude to drop the price for new buyers whilst pre-orders are still outstanding...

I've seen this numerous times on their site, I think I cancelled and reordered a product 2 or 3 times once as they kept dropping the price during the pre-order phase.

I can't see a way to cancel my previous preorder which was £4.50 more and still hasn't shipped.

Exactly my experience with this frustrating company so far, what's the point of pre-ordering when they pull a trick like halving the price to any old joe.
I'll be sharing a few words with them if my order ever arrives, no dispatch date given as yet.

Send them an email and say 'I want to cancel the preorder'. Worked for me several times.

Edit: or use a client chat service if you want a quicker soultion

Just had my pre-order cancellation and refund processed... Just gotta wait for the cheap one to dispatch, although for that price I don't mind waiting a bit longer to be honest.

Mine arrived from them yesterday after I pre-ordered in February but I paid £10.78 for mine.

Bit disappointing but still not a terrible price.

Hi,

I cancelled my pre-order yesterday, ordered at the new price and have received a dispatch notification, should hopefully have it tomorrow.
Not impressed with BD they did the same thing with the 5th adventure pack too.

I used the chat before, had my refund very quickly.

Just had a message to say my cheap copy has been sent, happy times, now just to work through the other 5 adventure packs I haven't played yet!

Same here, the new order has been dispatched the same day...

Not had this kind of bad service from them before, very disappointing.

My pre-order still not dispatched. Methinks they are taking the p*ss somewhat. Time to get cancelling...

I used the contact form on the website but others on this thread had a quicker response using the online chat function.

I received this:
BookDepository wrote:
This available stock is being used to fulfil pre-orders in the order that they were placed. I can confirm that all pre-orders will be fulfilled before any new orders.

Despite that, cancelled and re-ordered. £4.50 is £4.50!

Book Depository is behaving very strangely with this.

I re-ordered at the cheaper price and asked to cancel my older pre-order. I got confirmation of this, and the dispatch notice for the new, cheaper order, within 24 hours.

Perhaps coincidence, but it suggests they had it in stock. If they did, why hadn't they dispatched my existing pre-order already?

I like their prices, but their practices confuse the hell out of me. I seem to recall from the thread about the original box set of the card game, they were seemingly picking the orders to fulfill out of a hat, with neither price nor order date being given preference.

They said that to me too, but it's a blatant lie because new orders were being dispatched to other people here before my pre-order. It's one of those boilerplate replies that they send out to make people go away.

Terrible!

Got my refund but the price went back upto £10.07 (or at least that's what it shows for me, who knows with BD and how they price things?)

Yeah, cheaper price has gone, but at least by cancelling my order yesterday and reordering last night it's actually been despatched today! I have no idea how they process their orders...
