Amazon encountered an error, selling cameras and lenses worth more than $ 13,000 at $ 100
- Tram Ho
At the Prime Days shopping festival, Amazon has discounted a lot of technology products to attract customers. But in the middle of products with only 10% discount, 20% have cameras and lenses worth thousands of dollars sold only for less than 100 USD !
For example, the Sony A600 and 16-50mm lenses cost US $ 550 to only US $ 94.5, a decrease of 83%. Canon EF 800mm f / 5.6L IS Canon lenses typically cost more than US $ 13,000 in error, and also reduced to US $ 94.5. The strange point is that this price is only available to certain users, so it is suspected that the system error is not the intended discount.
Mr. Cody McGee posted on the Fuji Rumors website that he had successfully placed the Fujifilm X100F worth $ 1300 for a price of only $ 94.5, and even received confirmation code from the Amazon itself.
Users of the Slickdeals site Steeve also successfully placed a Canon EOS R (2000 USD) at the same price.
Another photographer who saw this error quickly set up the Sony a6000 product set mentioned above, then wanted to try his luck and put the Sony a6500 and 10-18mm lenses (worth $ 2000), one body of Sony A7III (2000 USD) and finally Sony A9 with 24-70mm f / 2.8 GM lens (5500 USD), all for … 94.5 USD.
Sony A7III and 10-18mm lenses were delivered to his house:
He said: “Perhaps many people will buy more ‘bargain’ products than I do, because after placing many products at the time Amazon thought my account was hacked, it made a temporary lock.” Another photographer shared a sad story: ” I put 3 high-end cameras, Sony A9, Nikon Z6 and EOS R, totaling less than 300 USD, but Amazon blocked the account before I can pay. “
This is not the first time Amazon has a price display error, and the company often has a tradition of respecting users when they order, the company will be ready to ship the goods at a very low price rather than delete the order and send it. Sorry letter like other systems.
