Gah – Carphone warehouse lying goits :-/

Parents are looking for a wii and wii fit (apparantly it’s good for Parkinsons?? – I think dad just wants to laugh at mum in cow racing personally). Wiis are generally available now – but wii fit is still a tad rare unless you want to buy it in a pack with a few crap accessories or some crap games.

Given this, I was surprised to spot carphone warehouse had them listed as in stock, and at the standard price of 69.99 (most places have them marked up to nearer 100 quid!). Quickly ordered one, picked a delivery day and got the order placed. Excellent. Still showing as in stock 10 mins after I’d ordered. I’d also found on their site that they have an “In stock Guarantee” – even better!

‘In Stock’ Guarantee

At the Carphone Warehouse, we believe in being totally honest with our customers. That means that when you see an item with the “In stock” badge against it, we guarantee that this item is in stock.

You can still ‘back-order’ an out of stock item and we will send it to you as soon as it is back in stock. We will also give you regular updates as to when the new stock is due to arrive.

Please note: When comparing our offers to other websites, be careful to check that they mean ‘In stock’ when they say it. Many websites will happily take your order for an In stock item, only to tell you that the item is not in stock but due in “any day now”, and then leave you hanging for weeks on end…

How annoying to get an email a little later with

Unfortunately, the item you ordered is temporarily out of stock. We do make every effort to ensure that only items that are in stock appear on the website, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
