I saw this posted on another site, the Asda store have made a mistake with their beer pricing Very Happy:

Quote:
Asda online have messed up there prices on there heiniken beer, it should be 10 per crate of 20 x 330ml and its been priced at 10p

Yes, only 10p for 20 x 330ml bottles

Just tried it and you can only buy 24 crates, that's only 2.40 for 540 bottles, it works out at 1.5p per litre.

You have to spend 25 for them to deliver it to your door but what a good way of getting all the heavy stuf delivered to the door (getting lots of brownie points) and your cheap beer

So ill wait for the influx of crates of beer that you will all give me Very Happy

A piece of advice that is well worth 10p.

ASDA ARE ONLY HONOURING THIS TILL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT SO HURRRY


Not sure if they are honouring it, might be worth a try if you have an Asda account, they can only say no, huh.

Scroll down for Heineken on the list:

Remmy, I saw another post where someone quoted the terms and conditions on the Asda site:

Quote:
Have just ordered 24 cases and then read the terms and conditions....

3.1 Prices on the Site are the prices charged in store on that day and as the store prices change we update the Site overnight. They are therefore a guide only. There may be some slight variations by the time We are due to deliver Your order. When You shop on the Site You will pay the same price that you would pay if you came to Our Store (excluding promotions) to do your shopping on the day of delivery. If you are unhappy with the price of any products once Your order is delivered please let us know and we can arrange a refund. You can either tell our driver when he makes the delivery or contact us within 7 working days after the day of delivery.

I suppose worst case is that 24 cases turn up with a bill for 240 and I refuse to accept delivery.


Another person in reply to that, said:

Quote:
If that is the case, you can cancel your order right up to 5pm on the day before delivery, so hopefuly nothing lost


Apparently, someone said they were honouring the mistake until midnight last night, but that conflicts with the terms of service doesn't it, so Confused

@ SP - Legally speaking you have only "purchased" the goods when they accept your offer.

Any advertised price is merely an 'invitation to treat', this means that the price isn't actually an offer (to create a binding contract) but merely to invite you to make an offer (usually based on the price). At any time a store can say "sorry mate, we've made a mistake with that price board, it's actually $xxx.xx" and you can choose to accept that new offer or not.

However, I would say you have a good argument to suggest that if the money you paid to them went into their bank account and left your bank account then they have accepted the offer to proposed to them (even if it was only their online software doing it for them).

So what I'm saying is that they may have no choice but to give you cheap grog Wink

Party hard! beers!

ASDA just announced that they will be charging the full price for any advertised items, regardless of their screw-up.

my response to asda's e mail telling me they have cancelled my order

Quote:
evening
my order number is **********.
this order was for 6 bottles of wine plus 24 cases of 20(330ml) heineken beer which was priced at 10p a case on your website.
i entered a contract to purchase these products and now you are revoking on this contract as you have informed me that the price was incorrect on your web site due to a human error.
this i feel contradicts the consumer price act 1987
see here http://www.dti.gov.uk/consumers/fact-sheets/page38133.html

i hope you will not renege on our contract. i will be sharing this information with various news agencies and will be seeking further legal advice.

regards


Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

You gotta make sure that you get the beer in the end, because I have ten bucks on you.

No money leaves your account until after Asda deliver the goods, and you sign for them. That's why they have the get-out clause that the price might change between ordering and paying. If they change the price, you can refuse to take delivery, and they can only charge you for the goods you accept. In practice, it's never happened to me (I get them to deliver my shopping for me every month!) but I suspect in this case they'll charge you whatever the 'real' price should have been.

Unfortunately Remmy it looks like you may not have a leg to stand on. While the Act you referred to makes it an offence to post a misleading price indication it does not make it an offence to negligently post the wrong price. If we were talking about this being seen from the point of view of a court they would probably surmise that it was not misleading as a reasonable man in the position of the purchaser would have realised that the price was far too low to be correct and thus were not mislead but rather sought to take advantage of what seemed like an obvious error.

But hey, let us know how you get on! I suggest they'll gladly meet your bluff of seeking legal counsel as they have vast resources and would probably defend it out of principle (to stop everyone else doing the same as you). That said, chances are they'll just ignore you.

I'd love to know their response though. Thanks for posting your email! Smile
