Are Price Glitches Ethical?
Received an email yesterday from Dodow, the company that makes the sleep aid that was ”free” on a price glitch last week via Amazon. Will post screen shot below. I got one, so I’m certainly not judging, but I must admit I didn’t really think about the company and its employees when I saw a “free” gadget and jus grabbed one for the sake of it, certainly something I wouldn’t have bought otherwise.
The email states 10,000 took advantage of this mistake, which will cost the company £440,000 in lost sales revenue (although admittedly I’m sure they wouldn’t have sold this extra 10,000 if they weren’t literallt giving them away. I‘ll be returning mine. Wondered what everybody else thinks about this and whether anyone feels we have an ethical obligation to decide which accidental freebies to cash in on?
