Amazon apologises as customers who ordered Nintendo Switch receive condoms instead!
This Black Friday sale turned ugly, fast. Retail giant Amazon has apologised after its buyers received condoms and random items such as toothbrushes and tambourines, instead of Nintendo switches worth approximately INR 28,000.
The company’s UK branch has listed an apology after the Black Friday blunder—for those wondering the day is one designated as the best time to shop post-Thanksgiving celebrations. At least a dozen of its buyers were disappointed and complained to the online shopping behemoth.
They have promised to refund customers, some of whom are furious that they ordered during Black Friday but will now have to pay full price.
It wasn’t just condoms and toothbrushes either.
Viv Johnson from Tutbury, Staffordshire received a copy of David Walliams' latest book, The Beast of Buckingham Palace, inside bashed-up cardboard packaging, a British newspaper reported.
Johnson reportedly shared an image of the Amazon package and wrote: "I want my money refunded. You have delivered and refused to take back (the) parcel which was smashed."
Amazon, meanwhile, has launched a probe into the blunder.
