Tesco falsely offers new iPad for £49

An ‘every little helps’ deal too good to be true

Tesco has mistakenly put the new Apple iPad on its website for a bargain price of £49 due to a computer error.

The accident meant the supermarket was offering the most high-end new iPad with WiFi, 4G and 64GB of storage for £49 instead of £659. The blunder has since been corrected by Tesco.

Tesco said, "We always look to offer our customers unbeatable value but unfortunately this was due to an IT error, which has now been corrected. Most of our customers realised that this was an obvious mistake but we apologise for any inconvenience caused."

Tesco’s terms and conditions state 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 despatch the item to you."

It said that customers will be notified of the error and asked whether they still wish to proceed with the purchase at the correct price. At the time of writing the 64GB WiFi and 4G iPad is out of stock at Tesco.
