GLITCH on Trade in for Samsung Tab A6 @ PC World

112
Found 28th Mar 2017
Stumbled across this glitch/mistake in their T & C's.
Pc World/Curry's currently have a Trade in Offer on this Samsung Galaxy Tab A6....you can Trade in some old/broken tablets and receive the money off voucher for a new Samsung tablet.

The mistake they've made is they don't state how many u can trade in against a Tablet.
So for example...they'll pay £50 for "All Other Tablets", working and non working ...so you can trade 5 x cheap broken Chinese tablets worth nothing for £250 and use that voucher to purchase the new tablet.

So I did....and they did accept it as it didn't state otherwise in their T & C's.

Tested working as of yesterday Can provide photos if needed.

I have some paracetamol tablets that don't work. Well, according to my wife, they don't clear her headache on a Friday night!
Would this work as part of the 'glitch'?

It's a poor excuse for one.
Interesting. I will go and have a dig through my 'projects' cupboard in the morning. I'm sure I've got 4 dead Google Nexus 7's in there...
Sorry can you please tell me where I can buy tablets for £20. I don't mean paracetamol X)
and it says now £100 off. so you can't get £250 anymore

Forgive me if I'm missing something but surely that doesn't quite answer the question - it says you can get up to £100 off the tablet. Surely that would leave you paying £129.99 even if you traded in two old tablets?

​I traded 5 x broken Chinese/no named tablets which were £50 each (5x50 = £250). Used those vouchers against a new Tablet at £229 so it ended up not costing anything

​The table of prices shows higher vouchers and doesn't stipulate how many tablets u can trade in against a new one.
Example. I traded 1 x Ipad mini 3 16gb wifi worth £155 and 2 x broken tablets worth £50 each total of £255.
Used these to buy another one.
Cos they don't state how many u can trade u free to use as many as u like.

Yup, I get that but it says on the page you can get a maximum of £100 off. Or did it not say that at the time?

​It did. Issue is they are giving more in value then the maximum of £100. Like the Ipad Mini 3 16gb wifi is £155 ...which has to be used against the new tablet.
From 1st March 2017 until 31st March 2017, we are offering
up to £100 off a new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1” tablet,
when you trade in any tablet.

Sounds like any tablet to me , not any tablets. Potential problem , no ? I wouldn't expect this to run smoothly for everyone

​Issue was they giving well over £100 Trade in Value on some of the used tablets. So u can only use that voucher against the New one. You can't spend it on anything else.

​I agree, however I do think op has a very good case
Theres a list of tablets in the terms and conditions you can use, OP are you saying you can use ANY? Even tablets on that list?
which store you went to?
Lol! . . . I can see what you're saying . . . And I Like It . . .

Let the fun and games begin, wonder if I can find those two tablets in the bedroom without waking the boss up.

Ok may have to wait till the morning!

​Non working as damaged
It would be non-working if you took it in with the battery flat.... I doubt they would try to charge it up to prove it does work!
Hi. Did you trade it in in store and bought online or did you buy it in store. Was it just 1 e voucher for the whole amount ?? Thanks

The amount given for your Trade In is not in question and I understand your voucher can only be used towards the purchase of a new a6 Tab .
However , its states that you can trade in a 'tablet' not 'tablets' so potentially this could be reason to refuse whether that be on redeeming (multiple vouchers not being accepted perhaps) or upon trade in. Although you could always get several people to go in to obtain multiple vouchers so it is quite possible that they will use their terms and conditions to refuse the use of multiple vouchers upon redemption ... interesting to see more feedback on this.

It does sound like you got lucky though OP and if you don't try you don't get so good luck guys

I didn't have any broken tablets to trade-in so would have to buy them , not taking the risk personally as I can see this being refused at most stores.

Where is that in the terms and conditions ?

Cosmetic damage does not mean the item is broken. My car has a chipped windscreen , is my car broken too then ?

​When they check tablet they have an on screen checklist which they need to tick if any visible damage like broken or cracked screens etc. Usual wear and tear is accepted

​When I spoke to the in store manager and asked about the amount u can trade he agreed it didn't state how many per customer can be traded. Without that clause in their T & C's u can use multiples against 1 transaction
Hmm, think their T&C's are a bit flawed, clearly states up to £100 off Samsung A 10.1" which they're selling for £229.99 but on the trade-in table from the T&C's they'll give £418 on an iPad Pro 256gb oO

That particular manager at that particular store , others may find a different response from managers at different stores is all I am saying. Like I said , the terms may not specifically state that you cannot trade in multiple items but throughout the terms and conditions they refer to a single trade item/product , never multiples.

Also , their terms do not state that if there is cosmetic damage then the tablet would be treated as broken but like you said , there is a checklist on their screens which they have to select which determines the amount that you would receive. This is not in their terms and conditions either so it does sound to me like they have their own set of rules regarding this and it cannot be assumed that what you got is what everybody will get.
If I had broken tablets available to trade-in I would definitely give this a go for the risk of petrol money to my local store but I wouldn't risk buying broken tablets to try and get this
