It will be like that until tomorrow, then the status changes to "shipped."

I also received the PK-P/Q adapter from Amazon and a 12mm F1.3 C-mount lens from ebay today that I planned on using with the Q. I still have the C-mount to Q-mount adapter coming. QVC has the highest prices for cameras on the internet, only an idiot would order a camera from them that are much higher than MSRP. $230.99 with free shipping at Amazon and no tax vs $90 ($321 ) more at QVC .

Their prices are always terrible UNLESS they are pushing something on live TV, then it can be a bargain but you HAVE to know what you are buying.

I switched my link to Amazon since I have never had the wrong camera shipped to me from them. BTW this TV screenshot shows how clueless QVC is.

So when it's all said and done, I'm to ship them back for a full refund and a refund of all shipping charges. There is no hold list, but there is a note on the account that if they do again become available, that they honor this price. We had to ask them for this, they did not offer it themselves. Get the name of the person you speak to and be sure to ask for their direct number.
I just spent half an hour with a QVC supervisor that is clueless about the Q. He was saying the E257713 was for a white Q and E257714 was for a black Q. I told him only the E257713 white Q was listed and there was no black Q listed for the $289.96 price.

He was so clueless that he said they would send me the Q two lens kit as exchange if I want like as if it were just a style difference. I told him the two lens kit was not listed and I bet there was zero chance that I would get any Q since Pentax does not sell the Q without a lens and QVC would not sell it for over $200 less (Q w/8.5mm kit) than any other dealer when all of the Pentax items they have listed are much higher than other dealers.

What really pissed me off is my PK-P/Q adapter and a 12mm F1.3 C-mount lens was delivered by my USPS carrier just before the UPS guy delivered the QVC package and I thought that was perfect timing. Now I have three Q items that include a Q C-mount adapter also coming and no Q.

The supervisor can be a thousand miles from the warehouse. It's very possible that he's never seen a Pentax Q in his life. All he has is a database with part numbers and descriptions. If the database is wrong in the first place, there is no way the supervisor can figure out what to do/say.

You'd think by this time, QVC has figured out there there was a glitch somewhere and has stopped all shipping of E257713. But there are indications that they are still preparing the shipments. QVC is just living according to the Bible, "The left hand doesn't know what the..... the right hand is doing."

Talk about bait and switch.
People throw that term around loosely. The company screwed up. It happens. But it would have been better and cheaper just to cancel those orders rather than pay shipping back and forth, plus the time and materials for pulling and packing.

I also received a VS-20 out of a different warehouse in California.
They actually included a packing slip with the wrong sku E257714 and description for the Optio vs20 as if that was what I ordered.
I have little confidence that I will receive a Q in exchange once I send this back.
Oh well, it was worth a shot.

I was being facetious when I wrote that. QVC is a major company that sells tons of stuff to my mother. Why would I call my mother a dupe? Those that ordered will likely be nothing out of pocket. Some of them are largely dissappointed though.

I told the QVC supervisor that others most likely received the VS20 instead of the Q and he said I was the only one. What a BS artist they are.

Is there a lesson learned?

Don't buy a camera from a place that sells Kim Kardashian super wide II skinny jeans.
