APIE Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

-5 Deal Score
615 Views
***Update: After the deal expired, the actual normal price returned to around $20. I canceled my order and contacted Amazon to complain. Sorry if anyone was inconvenienced. Comment below has an image capture of the deals link that clearly shows a higher value than the reality.***

Lost my headphones and found these last minute on Amazon. The deal is about to expire, but thought some people might be able to take advantage. Both of the deals listed below have really good reviews.

Currently they are $13.62 and are usually $199

Also, a second similar pair that are normally a little cheaper, but still a deep discount from the normal price.

You mean the normal price is $1.99, right? Decimal point error?

The lightning deal is over for the first set, but as you can see from my screenshot, the second pair was listed as normally 129.99. I can't get a screenshot from 20 minutes ago, but I assure you it said they are normally 199.99. I can't help if Amazon made a mistake or there was some mischievous deeds happening!

For those that would like to know, I did contact Amazon and made them aware of the problem. I have no idea how they handle these issues. Sorry again the deal wasn't as good as hoped Frown

Not that sorry for those that feel the need to hurl insults at someone trying to do a decent deed though.

Happy New Year :-/

Initial Question: Lightning deal advertisement was false. Needs to be a correction.
08:45 PM PST manasa(Amazon): Hello, my name is manasa. I'm here to help you today.
08:46 PM PST ab: Hi Manasa, I wanted to make you aware that there is a serious issue with some lightning deals that are being posted.
08:46 PM PST manasa: Hello AB.
08:46 PM PST ab: Specifically, with some Apie headphones that being represented at a much higher value and much deeper discount that the reality
08:47 PM PST ab: On two seperate sets of Apie Bluetooth headphones, the landing page listed the headphones for sale around $13 and the normal selling price as 199 and 129 dollars respectively
but in reality, the normal price was closer to $20
08:48 PM PST manasa: Oh my goodness!
Sure AB.
I'll take this as a feedback and forward it the concern team and make sure that is fixed.
Could you please provide me the link where you saw it?
08:49 PM PST ab: Only one of them are still available.
https://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-...headphones
08:49 PM PST manasa: Thank you for the link.
08:50 PM PST ab: With that advertisement, it seems like you would be getting a premium set of headphones for quite a deal. Reality is not so Frown
08:51 PM PST manasa: I certainly understand the concern.
I'll right contact the carrier and get this fixed.
08:52 PM PST manasa: As the product is sold by a third party seller on Amazon, the seller has a control over the prices.
But not to worry, I'll forward the concern to seller.
08:53 PM PST ab: Thank you very much. Hope you get it resolved properly.
08:53 PM PST manasa: Thank you so much for getting this to us.
I highly appreciate it.
It's my pleasure assisting you. Smilie
08:54 PM PST manasa: Is there anything else I can help you with today? Smilie
08:54 PM PST ab: No thanks. Just letting you know. Have a good evening!
