How lucky you will feel if you get an air conditioner at just Rs 5,900? What if you were told that the air conditioner’s actual price is around Rs 1 lakh. Don’t believe it? Many online buyers reportedly cashed in on this offer on Amazon India. According to several reports on national media, Amazon India, on Monday (July 5) listed a Toshiba air conditioner (AC) which costs Rs 96,700 for Rs 5900, at big fat 94 per cent discount. It is believed that the e-commerce giant made a listing error for the Toshiba 2021 range split system AC. While the actual price of the AC was Rs 96,700, it showed up on the listing page at a whopping discount of Rs 90,800. This listing also offered the option of EMI of just Rs 278. However, Amazon quickly revised the listing and now the same Toshiba 1.8 ton 5-star inverter AC is available for around 59,000. However, this is not the first time that such listing anomalies have been observed on Amazon. Similar discrepancies in price listing & deliveries have been reported earlier as well.
