Amazon sold USD 13000 products for USD 95 because of a glitch on prime day
Amazon Prime Day sale is one thing that shoppers wait for every year to get the best offers on stuff that they have been wanting for long. Shoppers store stuff in their carts and wait for the sale.
This year Amazon had the Prime Day on July, 15 and 16, worldwide. However, the best deal by Amazon this year was probably a glitch. Some lucky photography enthusiasts were able to guy high-end camera gear that originally retails at approximately Rs 9 lakh (USD 13,000) for just Rs 6,500 (USD 95).
Yes, that is right.
After the buyers got a hold of this glitch, Amazon was flooded with people buying the camera products. The gears were from high-end camera brands including Sony, Fujifilm and Canon.
A Canon EF 800 lens that generally retails at Rs 9 lakh (USD 13,000) was available for Rs 6,500 (USD 95). Though the deals were available only briefly, it was enough time for a large number of enthusiasts to purchase the items.
Buyers took to Reddit to share their excitement regarding their lucky buy. One Reddit user wrote, "I somehow got a $3,000 camera for $94 on Prime Day last night. It just seems a little too good to be true. Do you guys think it will ship or get canceled because it was a glitch?"
Another user wrote, "I too got some deals from the prime day 'glitch'. $16,000+ in gear for about $800."
One Reddit user could only write, "Right place right time," and we totally feel him.
Other comments read, "Amazon Accidentally Sold $13,000+ Camera Gear for $100 on Prime Day."
Someone also wrote, "Bought the most expensive camera bundle during the prime day glitch for 94.48. Thank you, Bezos!"
