Most people have experienced or listened about the goof-up which online shopping websites can do while delivering the orders. A similar case happened to a man in the UK, Nick James who was surprised after he received not only the fruit that he ordered but also an Apple iPhone SE.
This mix-up of products became a blessing for a 50-year-old UK resident from Twickenham.
Reportedly, staff at the supermarket told James that there would be a “surprise” in his order.
“I was half expecting the surprise to be an Easter egg or something,” he told the Daily Mirror. “I was a little shocked to say the least.”
“Tesco Mobile is raiding the nation’s shopping bags to make unbelievable substitutes in lucky Tesco.com Click+Collect orders,” said the supermarket chain in a statement to the Daily Mirror.
“Tesco Mobile’s ‘Super Subs’ has been created to show how amazing things can happen when the worlds of supermarket and mobile come together,” it continued, “all while putting a smile on shoppers’ faces.”
A big thanks this week to @Tesco & @tescomobile. On Wednesday evening we went to pick up our click and collect order and had a little surprise in there – an Apple iPhone SE. Apparently we ordered apples and randomly got an apple iphone! Made my sons week! 😁 #tesco #substitute pic.twitter.com/Mo8rZoAUwD

Reportedly, the promotion — limited to 80 items at 6 stores, and expiring on April 18 — also gives away Samsung and Nokia devices. Customers who order Tesco laundry tablets could get a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7, for instance.
