What's that… the new iPad for £50?!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:35 pm

Who fancies the upcoming iPad for £49.99? I certainly do…

Computer errors – at times they may be of a slight annoyance and cause only minor errors to a website but occasionally the effects could be disastrous as clearly portrayed by Tescos this week. The error didn’t occur on a simple grocery item nor an item of clothing, but instead the error appeared on the “iPad 4G 64GB model” which will first be sold by Tescos on the 17th of March. The computer glitch unfortunately altered the displayed price of the upcoming iPad and stated it would cost only…

£49.99!

The cheaper price (and computer glitch) meant that the product ended up being over 10 times cheaper than the correct retail price of £559, a pretty amusing error if you ask me!

Tesco haven’t reported on how many people rushed to snap up on the supposedly “cheap and exciting deal” but it is expected to be in either hundreds or thousands due to information about the deal spreading through social networking sites like a wildfire. However, many people on the sites did correctly predict that the deal was probably “too good to be true.”

So, what about the people who did sign up for this offer? Will they get an iPad free or their money back? Well, Tesco stated that “no money would be withdrawn from customers who had placed orders” and that Tesco’s terms and conditions do mention issues such as the computer glitch – here is the section which relates to online ordering errors:

“If, by mistake, we have under priced an item, we will not be liable to supply that item to you at the stated price, provided that we notify you before we dispatch the item to you. In those circumstances, we will notify the correct price to you so you can decide whether or not you wish to order the item at that price.”

A spokesman for Tesco also commented on the situation by stating that “We like to offer our customers unbeatable value, but unfortunately this is an IT error that is currently being corrected.”

Gosh,don’t you just love it when machines make amusing mistakes?! If you have a comment for this story,why not place it by clicking “Read More & Comment!
