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. Digital Spy Report
