There is a lot of discussion on social media about an Amazon mistake. In fact, Amazon India on Monday listed Toshiba Air Conditioner (AC) with a 94% discount on the original price of Rs 96,700 to Rs 5,900. This wrong listing of the company caused trouble for the brand, but the customers got hit by the bat. The actual cost of this AC was very high. To take advantage of the offer, customers did not even hesitate to shop and buy in an instant.
A discount of Rs 90,800 was being given on the air conditioner listed on Amazon. Also, option was given on monthly installment of Rs 278.
Wrong listing on Amazon.
Amazon is now offering the same Toshiba 1.8 Ton 5-Star Inverter AC for Rs 59,490 and 20% off on the original price with an EMI of Rs 2,800. Some of the features of the Inverter AC include 1 year warranty with antibacterial coating, dust filter, dehumidifier, Toshiba AC compressor, additional 9 years warranty on PCB, sensor, motor and electrical parts.
Toshiba cleans itself to keep the AC filter dry. So it doesn’t have any problem like smell or mildew formation. Because of this, its maintenance cost is greatly reduced.
This is not the first time Amazon has made such a mistake. In 2019 too, the e-commerce giant accidentally sold camera gear worth lakhs of rupees for Rs 6,500 during the Prime Day sale. After buyers caught this mess, Amazon was flooded with camera products.
