Does anybody know if you order something of screwfix and they have an item on offer and you pay for it online and they take money out your account.then they cancel your order due to a price error. Are they obligated to give it to you at the discounted price ?

Occasionally, we advertise goods at a promotional price; you must quote the relevant promotion code, otherwise you may be charged the full price.2.4 Occasionally an error may occur and goods may be incorrectly priced in which circumstances we will not be obliged to supply the goods at the incorrect price.2.5 Subject to clause 2.6, we must receive payment for the whole of the price of the goods you order, and any applicable charges for delivery, before your order can be processed unless we have agreed otherwise in advance in writing.2.6 If you are an account customer, payment shall be made in full at the end of the month following the date of invoice. Time shall be of the essence for payment. We may revoke credit if you fail to make payment when due. If payment is not made when due, interest is payable at the monthly rate of 2 per cent on the amount outstanding from the due date for payment until receipt by us of the full amount (including any accrued interest) whether before or after judgement, together with any reasonable legal or other recovery costs.

it reads to me that they contradict themselves in 2.1 and 2.4

No they suggest they are to sell it at the agreed price 2.1 but they are not obligated to go through with the sale.2.4 You lose I'm afraid.

The only chance is to kick up a real stink and hope they feel morally obliged to sell it. It will depend on your sale history as a customer etc.
