M&S honour mispriced Panasonic TV
Basically, M&S were incorrectly selling a Panasonic 50 inch 3D plasma television for just £199.
The petition, called 'Marks & Spencer supply our tv's that we paid for' was set up by customers after M&S cancelled their orders saying the price was an error.
Of course, M&S tried to sneak out of it by refunding customers and throwing in an extra £25 as a goodwill gesture. Sadly, people wanted posh televisions and not a £25 voucher.
'We can confirm that there was a pricing error on the TV and after reviewing our position, we decided to honour original orders at the incorrect price. We have contacted all customers involved,' said a spokesperson for M&S.
And what a bargain some people have got! The TV had originally been priced at £1,099 and M&S had already discounted it to £699. It was due to offer a further £100 off as a special 'Offer of the day' promotion on 8th January. Alas, the retailer reduced the price to £199 instead of £599.
Now, the company have removed the Panasonic TV product page from its website altogether, replacing it with a 404 error page.
