Sears.com Accidentally Prices iPad At $69
You know the old saying — if a deal is too good to be true, then it probably is too good to be true.
That’s what happened to a major retailer’s online shoppers Friday afternoon.
Sears.com inadvertently advertised Apple’s 16GB iPad 2 for $69, much less than the regular advertised price of $744.99.
That low price got the attention of web shoppers and the deal went viral on Twitter and other social media websites.
Many people took advantage of the unbelievable deal, though a Sears spokesperson couldn’t give an exact number.
Friday night, Sears posted a statement online telling customers the error was made by a third-party vendor and the deal will not be honored.
