Many of Amazon prices are software controlled, every once in a while an error occurs resulting in an incredible bargain. I use an Amazon price watching app and have been able to catch some of these. Usually, you can place the order, but then they'll catch the error before shipment and cancel the order, although once in a while they'll honor the price.

The Amazon software tracks competitor's prices and attempts to ensure Amazon always has the lowest price on tracked items even if just a few dollars or cents. If a competitor makes a price error, the Amazon software may still try to lower it before other fail-safes kick in and readjust the price back to normal.
