And if it is not working anymore...things are clear:
Interdiscount will sue unclemike, they will shut down EF and all of us who bought it for 399 will be forced to pay 899!
They'll sue me...?

On what grounds ? Telling the English-speaking Swiss world about one of their best offers ever ?

I'm upto date on my Boston Legal episodes. I'll represent myself...
Just need to find someone to write out my German subtitles though. ;-)

Great deal but it was for one day only.
Try telling Interdiscount's own 300 CHF voucher that.
"(Valid from 27.6.11 to 10.7.11)"

Seriously though, despite all of the EnglishForum users alerting InterDiscount to this problem yesterday, this morning, you can still go onto InterDiscount's website, view the flyer, see the 699 CHF price, view details, and still get the 300 CHF voucher.

I'm amazed they didn't try to remove that link.

The big problem they made is not to put their usual disclaimer on the voucher:
"Nicht kumulierbar mit anderen Bons/Rabattaktivitäten."
(Not valid with other coupons, offers)

Someone's Swiss head is going to roll. But at least they'll have a cheap new PC to update their CV on.

Hi!
I'm selling mine (unopened) for a little profit

So you would still pay much less for it, but a bit more (to cover my little profit ).

How's that sound for you?
Sounds like you are profiting from a thread on an ex-pat forum started out of goodwill, by a nice chap to his fellow forum members. Now you are trying to sell it back to said fellow forum members at an inflated price. I think that is pretty shameless of you to be honest, and the red blobbies I gave reflect that.

The voucher is still valid but 699 is now 899.

It's very nice from the OP-

Shameless, probably, necessity-yes unfortunately.

But I mentioned it's huge deal, go for it at InterDiscount while you can!

As I said my local inter-discount took long time, and has blocked the deal.
If one can go through the hassle and still has stock, go for it!

If you can not get it at the "huge deal price", then you pay a bit more and you still get it at a very nice price.




Sorry if that shocks you.

Unfortunately the advertising was a mistake and has since been corrected on their web page.

If it's too good to be true .... then it normally is a mistake - which is why I'm glad that I made the effort to go to the city, yesterday at 6.00, before they closed, instead of waiting till today, like I originally intended. I was convinced it was an error and wouldn't remain so for long.

To me it read that in-store it was 200 chufs reduction, and online (or the on-line voucher presented at the store), it was a further 100 chufs (300 chufs of original price) - not both combined. I bet someone's hanging by their balls today.

After they checked with a phone call, they seem to have honoured all vouchers that were presented against the existing offer price, yesterday, but alarm bells probably started to ring out centrally, which meant they needed to rectify the situation for today.

However, they still probably got off lightly - they lost out to a few of us EFers and possibly a few other savvy customers, but overall probably only lost just a few thousands.

Thanks again to Uncle Mike for picking this up and passing it on.

well 550 looks nicer now than it did yesterday but I'd side with anyone who decides that such a kind EFer gets saddled with his 399 franc investment before ponying-up for a 2nd hand laptop....

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

I missed all the updates since last night, but I just went to the ID in Oerlikon and they had one in stock - the guy said it was 599 (and as someone in the thread mentioned, 100 of that needs a Coop card).

Shame, but congrats to all those who were able to take advantage, and thanks to the OP!

It doesn't really shock or surprise me, as having seen your previous posts with selling electronics, it seems to be quite normal behaviour for you. I do however think it's a shame that you clearly can't see anything wrong with taking advantage of a deal a member has alerted you to, and then reselling the same laptop for a tidy profit in the very same thread. It's beyond cheeky imo.

Re: Unbelievable - brand new Samsung i5 laptops at 399 CHF from Interdiscount.

Went in today with the voucher at lunchtime and demanded they honour it. They told me they will check with central office and come back to me in a few days.Spoke to the Manager. Lets see what happens worth a try if nothing else nice to catch them out and force a bit of customer service from them

EXACTLY !!!!!

Go along, play dumb, take a copy of their flyer, and the voucher.

The more people who ring up to query this offer, the greater the chance that they'll realise their mistake and spoil it for all of us.

Please - by all means, ring them up, check their stock and reserve a laptop... but don't mention the voucher!
Don't you feel the slightest bit dishonest. True, we all make mistakes but to actively encourage...oh forget it
