Have a netbook for £22 say Currys... wait, hang on, that's not right
Currys have been left with egg on their ample faces, apologising to hundreds of customers after listing a Samsung Galaxy Netbook for £22, instead of £229 on its website.
With Black Friday swirling around, everyone thought they were getting a great bargain come-early, but alas, Currys had ballsed-up. And it was a deal found on the marvellous HotUKDeals.
Soon, thrilled bargain hunters were being contacted by Currys staff who told them that the 'offer' wouldn't be honoured. A spokesman from Currys said:
"We are very sorry to have to confirm that a mistake was made when inputting the price of the Samsung netbook on our websites. The product was advertised on TV last night at the excellent price of £229 but unfortunately when put on the websites an error occurred and it went up at £22."
"This is clearly an honest mistake and we would like to apologise to anyone who placed an order. We will be contacting all customers who placed an order, either by email or phone, to apologise and explain the error."
Speaking of HUKD, they've noticed a good deal on iPad2. Hurry up and take advantage of that before someone starts claiming it was all one big mistake, just like Currys.
