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
Didn't you feel ridiculous?

Well I hope your 'persuasive' method of trying to get a cheap computer (even cheaper) impresses them more than your dress sense...

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

Good luck to all the people who were able to get a cheap laptop, but now that it's clear it's an error, it seems a bit much to march into the shop "demanding" they honour the voucher.

I'm all for consumer's rights but to want to punish the shop further for making an honest mistake seems less like fairness and more like cynical opportunism.

well the voucher does say until 10.07.2011.. they may not print NEW vouchers, but the old one should remain valid.

Didnt you? And call the Police ??? Suddenly it came into your head then (I'm asking), that you realised they may have better things to do?

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

From today's Coop Magazine, it definitely seems like a mistake. I think they got two promos overlapped.

The net price with the CHF 300 coupon should be CHF 599 (see ad in French).

So anyone who got the combo deal, great work.

This is not a gloat ..... but .........
.............. this is only my 3rd computer (all laptops) since '95 - when Windows 3.11 was a good step up from 3.1 and the internet was still in it's infancy, with dial-up.

My Dell, ended up costing a fortune in comparison to this, after I'd upped all the specs (as recommended by "someone in the know"); 2nd battery was coming to an end (giving about 90mins.) and there was a problem with the wi-fi software (meaning it was always cabled to the router and had to be shut down when the kids went to bed, due to it's position), and the CPU seemed to continually max out making video playback a real problem.

So although I'd intended to go for a "normal" PC set up (as I would have more space after I've moved in a couple of months), when I was alerted to this cock-up deal - it had to be done.

So here I am, tapping away, kids in bed, watching Glastonbury highlights on the tele - with working wi-fi and a useable battery.

Loads of software and add-ons (oh-oh .... no speck cheller yet) to download and install, and still getting used to the touch pad (always prefered a remote mini mouse) and W7 - but hey .... I'll just have to struggle on ....

So, sorry InterDiscount - your loss (mistake) is my gain - anyway you (and mummy Coop) have had enough out of me over the years - so we could be getting close to even

Gulp....
I know I started this thread (and stampedes to Interdiscount), but seriously, I wouldn't pay 599 CHF for it.

For just 100 CHF more, you could have an Acer laptop with the very latest (Sandy Bridge) i5 processor:

Mind you, tomorrow (Thursday 30 June), Interdiscount has 10% off all laptops, so you might, just might, be able to get the
Samsung for 540 CHF. But probably not, as they'll probably use their usual "can't combine offers" disclaimer.

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

I am glad this cheap price worked out for some of you. From my research buying some electronics, interdiscount has been far from its name sake compared to others like Media Markt. They usually seem to inflate prices greatly only to give a not quite as great discount to make items seem like good deals. It seems to be a good business strategy though, the stores are everywhere.

You need to set the German (Switzerland).
