That is what I meant: if the deal was done, the transaction processed. If you purchased it for the "free" price then it should be yours.
Technically, at least from a UK law perspective, the deal isn't 'done' until it's been fulfilled by both sides. If you buy something and they ship it, then that's a contract. Until it's shipped however, no such contract exists in most cases.
