Man orders apples online, gets apple Iphone instead
Well, Nick James from Twickenham was just as stunned when he saw a brand new Apple iPhone in his grocery bag. He had just ordered some items from one of the branches of Tesco, UK’s multinational groceries and general merchandise retailer. The 50-year-old was asked to look for a surprise in the bag by the supermarket’s staff. Not thinking much of it, Mr James was expecting an Easter egg or something along those lines. But he was soon ‘shocked’ to discover the iPhone SE in place of the apples that he had ordered.
According to The Mirror, Mr James said, “I was half expecting the surprise to be an Easter egg or something – I was a little bit shocked, to say the least.”
The gift to Mr James was a part of the retailer’s week-long “super substitutes” promotion in which Tesco Mobile is giving away free iPhones, AirPods and Samsung devices.
The man soon shared the happy news on Twitter. Tagging Tesco and Tesco Mobile, he wrote, “A big thanks this week to Tesco and Tesco Mobile. 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 son’s week,” he wrote.
