Originally Posted By: Digital Spy
Supermarket giant Tesco has been advertising a deal to beat them all on its website, offering an Xbox 360 hardware bundle for the knock-down price of just 33.24.

The Tesco.com deal featured an Xbox 360 console, a wireless control pad and games Forza Motorsport 2 and Viva Pinata.

The offer, which appears to have been an administrative error, has now been removed from the firm's website.

Tesco has refused to comment on whether they will honour those who ordered the bundle at the advertised price, but a spokesman from Trading Standards told DS: "If a consumer orders goods, the trader accepts the order and the price is agreed, but later the trader says the price has gone up, the consumer should only have to pay the price given at the time the order was placed."

However, Tesco lists in section one of its terms and conditions that: "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 concerned."

I remember Dabs honoured their pricing error on the original Xbox, they priced them at 29.99 instead of 299.99 when they first came out or summit like that, and at least 16 customers got them before the error was rectified, and they decided to honour it.

I bought eight 32" 100Hz Samsung TV's from Ebuyer.com when they had an error, at a cost of 34.00 each, and Ebuyer never honoured that, it was a bit of a pisstake though, ordering eight of them.

They even took the money off my card which meant they had entered into a contract to supply the goods at the stated price, but alas I never got anywhere with them the gits lol.

It will be interesting to see if Tesco honour this error, at the end of the day it will be pocket change for them, and it could be some really good publicity for them... then again, by not honouring it, this is the kind of reason they are so rich lol.

Not to drift off too far with this topic,
but a mate of mine ordered a shed load of food from Iceland online.

It was buy this chicken and get the veg free,
BUT they credited your account instead hoping you selected the veg.

My mate, ordered hundreds of food, and credited himself 400 lol
He ordered Booze with the Money.

They called him over it but honoured it and when the Iceland van
turned up he said keep the food, just give me the Booze lol.

As you say they had entred into a contract lol

The highly publicised error saw thousands of gamers race to Tesco's website in an attempt to order the console, which the firm claims was caused by a supplier error, stating that the problem also affected other high-street retailers' websites.

Although Trading Standards told DS, "The consumer should only have to pay the price given at the time the order was placed," a Tesco press officer has said the store cannot supply the console to those who bought it at the ultra low price.

He told DS: "Whilst we are committed to keeping prices as low as possible this deal was literally too good to be true. It was an error by our supplier for which we sincerely apologise and unfortunately the orders cannot be processed."

Cheeky fookin robbing Grrrs! Remember that next time you are thinking of going to Tesco, the biggest monopoly the UK has ever seen, the richest retail chain in the UK, the most profitable company in the UK, refuses to supply a product that they agreed to because the price was wrong, and go to Asda or wherever instead!!

This is the reason they are so fooking rich, estimated that sometime next year, they will be taking 1 in every 6 spent in the entire UK!!!
