The main DSE site has a rotating advert in the centre of the screen offering specials etc...  click on one there at the moment for a HD LCD TV for $888 and get the following :

They show that page when they had limited stock and sold out. The special probably only applied "while stocks last", undoubtably they would have been selling off last years model.

I'm sure they will remove it from the front page when they have time.

Such is life.

Still a FTL IMO, wouldnt take much smarts to pull it when there was no more online stock. I am sure Mauritio would never let crap like that happen on GZ!

This, from the Commerce Commission website:

Availability of goods
The Fair Trading Act requires businesses to supply advertised goods or services at the advertised price for a reasonable (or stated) period and in reasonable (or stated) quantities. Websites also need to be kept up-to-date so that stock that is no longer available is not promoted.

There is no precise definition of what is meant by ?reasonable quantities? and ?reasonable time?. In practice, it will depend on the market in which the business is operating, the likely demand based on experience, the attractiveness of the offer and the nature and extent of the advertising.

The Act prohibits businesses from advertising goods or services that they know they cannot or may not be able to supply in reasonable quantities. Because of advertising deadlines, some businesses place advertisements for goods before they actually have them on hand. Sometimes, advertisements for goods ordered from overseas are placed in anticipation of their arrival. Businesses should be careful to make sure they have reasonable grounds to believe the goods will be available when the advertisement appears.
